Get a B450 chipset MB, 3600 CPU. Use the savings to get a 2080 or 2080 ti.



Hello. Have been using budget desktops and laptops for years, so now looking to get something more mid-range. The announcement of Ryzen 3000 CPUs got me interested in the Ryzen 3700x, and in building my own desktop PC.

Have done some research and shortlisted the following components:
  • CPU
    • Ryzen 3700X
  • CPU Cooler
    • Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B 120mm Air CPU Cooler
  • Motherboard
    • ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi)
  • Storage 1
    • Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB PCIe NVMe M.2
  • Storage 2
    • Old SSD SATA Drive (will upgrade to NVMe PCIe 4.0 drive in future)
  • GPU
    • MSI Gaming GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (GTX 1660 TI Ventus XS 6G OC)
  • RAM
    • G.Skill Trident Z Neo (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3600MHz PC4-28800 Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16D-16GTZNC (16-19-19-39)
  • PSU
    • EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G3, 80 Plus Gold 550W
  • Case
    • Fractal Design Meshify C - Tempered Glass - Blackout

My budget is below $2000. These components are shortlisted with $2000 as a guide, estimated using Amazon.com.

1) Are these components suitable for the 3700x?

2) Where should I be sourcing for these parts? Locally or through Amazon/Newegg?

3) I've read that its very simple to put together a desktop PC nowadays. So are these components all I need or do I need to buy screws, cables, thermal paste ... etc?

MSI B450 Mortar Max, should have stock coming in soon
Crap just discovered mortar max motherboard has no 5V ARGB header.

Cheap 5V RGB fan controllers can't work with this motherboard

I'm thinking of upgrading my CPU to a AMD Ryzen to replace my old i5. Last time I used AMD was back it the Athlon64 days if I remember.

I will be using back most of my components as listed on the right.
Will be running games for the PC as the old CPU seems to be a bottleneck for my GTX1070ti card.

Thinking of getting:
AMD Ryzen 3600
MSI Tomahawk Max B450 - bundled for $444
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz $117

Are these items fine and do I need a non-stock CPU cooler?

Planning to change my system to Ryzen. Currently using i5-4590 with Asus Formula Board. Been using the computer for 5 years already. Thinking of getting a X570 board. Do you guys have any recommendation? Should be choosing either Ryzen 3600 or 3700X. Depends on Black Friday sales.

hi bros

need your advice pls.

i made a mistake by pairing 3900x with b450 motherboard

i read many reviews that b450 have poor VRM design and i am worried about VRM temperature. I do not do any CPU overclocking.

1) Should I continue using the b450 motherboard?

2) Should I upgrade b450 to x470/x570 with better VRMs?

Thank you

1. Depends on which b450
2. MANY videos out there with VRM checks for many b450 boards. Go research a bit before assuming things.
