  1. satisfying video,but we don't need a bios update for ryzen 9 5950x on gigabyte x570 master?

  2. hi what version of the board do you have? did you have to flash your bios to get it to work?? I have version 1.1 and not sure if i need to flush my bios and not really want to…

  3. A beautifull build sir. And a perfect video. Not that shouting and weird comments they make all the times in other video's. With making the weirdest behavier like that is a normal thing to do. I hate those video's where people behave weird and over the top.
    So this video of you is very welcome.?
    I want also to build a new computer. But i have no knowledge. The latest build was 30 years ago so the last two months i did a lot of reading, watching video's and trying to learn as much as possible. All those video's where people are shouting and making weird comments all the time this one of you is so wonderfull. Because i can't concentrate when people are showing stuff and in the main time are always shouting and do weird things.

    I want to use also an AMD 5950X CPU. But my motherboard will be a MSI MEg Godlike X570 with or a 3080 or a 3090 card. Not sure about that in this moment. Probably it will also depends on what will come out in the beginning of 2021. A 3080 with greater memory maybe.
    Where i am also not sure about is the ram. Wich ram should be the best with the combo of a 5950x and the MSI Godlike motherboard.
    Wich speed it should have and or i need to use 2 banks or 4 banks instead ? I want the total memory to be 64 gig.
    It will probably the last computer that i will own. I'm old. So i want everything to give the best experiece as possible. With this i mean that i also want to play great games and surprise me in a great way but also want to use my computer for videoediting. And for what i know now the 5950x should give better results then a 10900 from Intel.
    But from knowing almost nothing 2 months ago until what i have learned until now it is not an easy task for a pc not know noob.?
    So there are still a lot of uncertanties for me. But most of those have to go with the flow. But i want to be sure not to make really the big mistakes. Like that when i'm finally putting everything together that my videocard won't fit into the case.?
    And what kind of watercool system i should be going for. Soft tubing is maybe the best option for me.
    I was thinking about a Corsair 1000 case. To buy to biggest case that there is so everything will definitly fit. I know this is maybe a stupid thing to go by but you guys seem to know everything in advange and won't run into these kinds of problems.
    So if someone could suggest to me a good case and what kind of memory i should go for this would be much appreciated.?
    Thanks in advange.

  4. When will the 5950x be available? I really want one. But the problem is that I can’t wait too long. I already have my 3090 ftw3 hybrid in hand. I just need the rest of the parts for an insane build. If it doesn’t become available quick, I’m gonna go with a 10900k build.

  5. This is the exact build I am in the process of doing, except I got the white version of the case. I am surprised you didn't mount the video card the other way so you could see the lighting better.

  6. I am building a similar build with a 5950x on a Crosshair Hero VIII Wi-Fi. Would I need to use the 4 pin cpu connector in addition to the 8 pin or would it be ok with just the 8 pin connector because my RM850x PSU does not have one?

  7. Why do all reviewers omit the one thing that may be a deal breaker? ….
    BOOT/POST TIMES from button press to signon or Windows desktop. I
    guess cause it WOULD be a deal breaker?
    Just sayin. Thanks for the Review.

  8. This motherboard has been impossible to get. I finally snagged one a few days ago through Amazon and the moment I checked out, it was already sold out. And this is with Newegg and amazon notifications. I've tried for nearly 2 months.

  9. Awesome build. Do you know if the Gigabyte Aorus X570 Xtreme works with the Gigabyte Titan Ridge pcie Thunderbolt 3 card and if it works with Ryzen 5900X / 5950X? Thanx

  10. I don't understand why the motherboard you used in this video, AORUS X570 XTREME, isn't available for purchase from major retailers. I'm guessing you just reviewed it and benchmarked it before launch. I guess that's what this is.

  11. The combination of the 5950x and aorus master is giving a lot of whea errors on my system. Checked fclk, ram, and all other suggestions online. Did you have no problems with that?

  12. May I ask what fans you used to replaced the nzxt z73 non rbg ones? And do they perform better (was looking to do the same)

  13. What are the dimensions of this motherboard? Because the P500A can only support EATX up to 280mm wide, and I'm pretty sure the board is a lot wider than 280mm

  14. My Task Manager doesn't show high frequencies like that, but it does show them in HWInfo. Is there any way I can show single core performance in task manager too?
