What is the 5950X good for? I run multiple programs at the same time across two screens, sometimes two 3D sims at the same time, one on each screen. One of them, Space Engine, is a real power guzzler.
Is 32 GB the sweet spot for this board and that new cpu? I don't see many people going to 64 GB or even trying 128 GB.
Should this be downloaded on a 2700x?
Hi, I haven't answered earlier because the forum didn't let me a couple of days ago. You can get the driver here, I haven't tried the driver on Windows 11 I'm still running Windows 10.
About the new BIOS
I'm on it right now, it seems to work without a problem I haven't done any benchmarks to compare it to the previous one.
Hey guys. I'm helping my little brother out optimizing his x470-f + 3700x and upgrading his GPU to my old 3080 FE. I already updated to latest bios (6063) and clean installed a fresh windows 11.
I'm not familiar with the x470, any Asus bios or the 3700x. What settings should I make sure to check to get the most out of the processor and other hardware? I only enabled XMP profile for the memory while I research other settings.
The memory is dual rank Samsung B-die so I should be able to optimize it to run higher mhz and lower timings. Does x470 support running at 3600 or even 3800mhz if the memory sticks allow that? I'm going to follow the integralfx ddr4 overclocking guide but wanted to know what limitations the x470 might have.
Current temps are pretty decent but I might swap the case out too with some PWM fans if the 3080 FE ends up running too hot in this one.
Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
You did the right thing activating XPM in the bios, myself i've OC @3800 and infinity fabric at 1800 with 3200 speed memory so you should be able to boost your samsung by the same amount without issues, make sure you have PBO auto activated. You could also use negative offset on your CPU core to lower your temps a bit.
I recommend also deactivating Fast boot, it messes with drivers and can get your windows corrupted, recommend turning it off in both the bios and windows.
