  1. Perhaps,.. Comet Lake will be Intel's solution coming in Q1 of 2020.
  2. If you see a price drop on CPU's in the near future, it will not be AMD 3000 series chips. However you might see Big Blue cutting prices on it's 8th or 9th Gen desktop processors. Intel is facing a problem when it comes to price-to-performance evaluation. As AMD surges forward with its simultaneous Ryzen 3000 and Radeon RX 5000 launches,.. Intel is unable to respond quickly in terms of new hardware, one option for Intel is to lower prices on its mainstream desktop processors. https://hothardware.com/news/etailer-data-amd-ryzen-3000-zen-2-intel-mindfactory-sales-victory
  3. Ryzen 9 3900X Memory Scaling Benchmarks. https://openbenchmarking.org/result/1907047-HV-MEMORYTES32&obr_sgm=y
  4. I had no issues with MSI X570, and Asrock X570 builds both were fine using G.SKILL F4-3600C14D-16GTZN memory kits with factory BIOS everything worked.
  5. You should be fine with 3200/3600 memory on most X570 motherboards,.. worst case you might need to update your motherboard BIOS. https://premiumbuilds.com/ram/best-ram-for-ryzen-3000/

    Single player games

    I just started playing Far Cry New Dawn,.. while I have had my issues with Far Cry 5 in the past, I still have to say it's a good game.

    Home media center project

    I would go with a Mini-ITX build, and small HTPC case like the Silverstone ML05. http://www.silentpcreview.com/Silverstone_ML05_m-ITX_HTPC_case

    Choose between 2 SATA SSDs please

    The performance delta between the two drives is negligible,.. so based on price I would choose the Crucial MX500.

    3.3vRail Overvoltage Symptoms??

    Back in the day,.. RAM voltage was provided via the 3.3V rail, and you would do "sense wire modding" to run up-to 4.1V through the 3.3V rail. Sense wire modding guide: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?37574-Guide-Power-Supply-Sense-Wire-Modding&highlight=3.3v rail mod

    3.3vRail Overvoltage Symptoms??

    +1 what are you planing to gain? Depending on your CPU, Motherboard,.. bumping the 3.3V rail up to 3.91V will cause possible hardware failures,.. due to fluctuations under loads, and when power draw lowers your voltages will spike. However if you insist on tweaking your rail pots I would NOT go out of the ATX spec of 5% up or down. Your system looping the power-up sequence issue could be the 3.3V rail OCP,.. or could be the Power_Good signal causing the timer chip to reset the processor, and continuously turn off the computer operations.

    Mowing on a hillside

    A nice comfy lawn-chair, some cold beer, and a 22T GOAT slope mower would be my advice.
  14. LN2. https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-9-3950x-cpu-world-record-overclock-5-4-ghz-cinebench-r15/ Looking forward to Silicone Lottery high-bin chips OC results under water,.. 4.5 GHz across all 16-cores would be sweet.
  15. 5.4GHz @ 1.776V,.. is a vary sweet overclock.
