  1. so I gave my son my 8600k Z390 platform and switch to a Ryzen 3600 paired with a MSI x470 Gaming plus I know I should've went with a X570 but at $159 it made more sense to go with the MSI X470 Gaming plus for $79 So my issue is I was using a kit of G.SKILL Aegis 16GB (2 x 8GB) Model F4-3000C16D-16GISB which says its compatible but when I populate slots 2 & 4 the rgb turn blue and no post, work fine with one stick ??? now I swapped ram to a 2x4 kit of Patriot DDR4 3000 viper and it works just fine. Any advice ???

    Thank you for the link $163 not as bad as i expected but x570 has nothing i need pci-e 4.0 is mainly for storage and as far a the vrm's the 3600 should pull less power than a 2700x. so i am looking at the b450's ox x470 and maybe even x370 if the price is right

    With a gtx 1080 pci-e 4.0 is pointless and almost as bad of a gimmick as RT
  9. So my oldest son is due for an upgrade, currently he is running a 6600k on a budget asus z170 with a Evga Gtx 1080 FTW HYbid @ 1080p @ 144hz with Ryzen 2 right around the corner I really want to get him the Ryzen 3600 at $199 it is looking pretty good even better than my 8600k but I been with Intel for so long a am ignorant to AMD's motherboards I want to keep the motherboard price around $100 any help would be greatly appreciated sincerely yours a blue man blushing red LOL

    Thank you I agree, I was going to go with a Ryzen 2600 but even over clocked it gets outpaced by the 9400f
