Really good price for a decent B450 ITX board with free express shipping. Cheapest I’ve seen so far for this specific model
I have the B550I version of this… Aorus pro is awesome, as are gigabyte in general.
Sadly it’s waiting for a 5900X to make its life complete, it’s rather lonely.
This board would pair well with the cheap and highly available
Was about to say how are you putting a 5900x into a b450…
i have a 3600 should i pair this with this or a b550i or is it overkill (i already bought it but was about to build 2 pcs)
thing is the b450i specs says it only supports 3600mhz ram if u OC
Support for DDR4 3600(O.C.)/3466(O.C.)/3200(O.C.)/2933/2667/2400/2133 MHz memory module
This is fine. If youre not budgetting that high, you probably shouldnt be buying RAM that supports more than 3600 anyways.
i thought amd needed faster ram
@furythree: I think we forget that intel was using 2666 when the ryzen 3000’s came out. 3600 IS faster ram. The FCLK is capped at 1800 so 3600 is the fastest you can use. Or rather, should use.
@ATangk: i just meant that i know the 5 series ryzens benefit from 3600 mhz ram
does it apply to 3 series
intel doesnt matter too much i know
i have spare sticks of 3000mhz ram in my current intel system. but its too tall and was just about to drop cash on 3600mhz lpx after passing on dozens of lower speed deals
dont tell me R5 3600 doesnt need it and i missed out for no reason lol
i have a second build which im going to throw in a 3700x temporarily until 5800x prices come down
@furythree: 3600 can benefit from 3600. (Lol, thats confusing, Ryzen 3600 can use 3600Mhz)
The 5000 series can use 3800Mhz and potentially 4000Mhz.
@ATangk: i guess i understand that higher ram speed is beneficial in general. but i keep reading about this sweetspot 1:1 thing with infinity fabric
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/579446, this one already can use 5000 series CPU since Asrock just released the BIOS
that one is out of stock though
Can you guys pay on ebay rightnow? I tried both PayPal and credit card still failed
Apple Pay worked if that helps
