3700x 4.3ghz 1.3v https://valid.x86.fr/tim79f

I purchased these parts on a big saving on black friday. The build is replacing a i7 3770k @ 4.3 ghz + Tri-X 290

I need to get some red fans to match the case and motherboard but for now I have set the leds on motherboard and gpu to blue to match the stock blue led on the gammax 400 cooler.

September 8 2019 replaced the 1700x with a 3700x. Following links are for the 1700x + 1070ti CPU-Z https://valid.x86.fr/yqdbef Firestrike 19,215 https://www.3dmark.com/fs/20453820 PCMark10 https://www.3dmark.com/pcm10/34843293? TimeSpy https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/34845603?

Part Reviews

CPU

Nice upgrade from my 1700X. The chip will overclock to 4.3 ghz @ 1.3v

I did not like using PBO since the volts would go to 1.45+ and temps were 10-20 cel more than the manual oc for less than 500 mhz.

Motherboard

Nice mb with good layout. Overclocks stable for over a year a R7 1700X and now a R7 3700X

Storage

When I bought thought it was NVME, but for the price its a great drive.

Video Card

Good card plays everything I have at max. Overclocks ok (+175 core +450 memory)

Has coil whine in some games (seems when the FPS are real high it whines). May RMA but its a EVGA so for 2 more years I have nothing to worry about.

Yes I couldn't help myself. Got the Ryzen 7 1700x + Gigabyte x370 Gaming for $150 from newegg on black friday. It sold out in minutes.

The main build is replacing a i7 3770k @ 4.3 ghz and the second 1700x is replacing a 4670k @ 4 ghz

Were you able to get the RAM running at 3200mhz stable?

Yes with XMP profile 2 its at 32 mhz I'll add a cpuz screen. Its running at 3.6 ghz on all cores with 1.275 volts per MSI turbo.

I got a manual overclock of 4.0 at 1.3875 volts and 3.9 at 1.3125 and 3.8 at 1.2 but I chose to just run the 3.6 at 1.275 24/7 since idle is 30 and max load is 60 with the DeepCool Gammax 400.

EDIT I found a stable OC of 3.8 @ 1.2 so that's my new 24/7 clock.

So if I bought this RAM right now then it will run 3200 MHZ fine with a 1700x?

It did for me with the MSI X470 Gaming Plus with newest bios

The same kit in red also ran with XMP at 3200 mhz on my second system with a Gigabyte AX370 Gaming and R7 1700x

Same RAM on my other PC, except its red and not black heatspreaders https://valid.x86.fr/4kmsxd https://pcpartpicker.com/b/XqgwrH

This is cpuz of this system running 3200 mhz RAM and its AIDA64 stable. https://valid.x86.fr/f8vusi

I would probably upgrade the cooler on that, but otherwise it's a nice and powerful build. Nice!

It does 4.3 ghz @ 1.3volts. I've considered buying a Dark Rock Pro 4 or a Noctua DH15 but can't see paying that much for a small gain. The Gammax 400 is better than the Hyper 212 Evo

Okay, gotcha. You might want to consider Scythe coolers. Their Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B cooler is just $59, and it's silent and is a very capable cooler if you wan't something less expensive.

The Gammax 400 and GT are the same and both better than the Mugen
