I am sticking with the x370  for awhile.At least till  Ive saved enough to get an x570 or whatever chip set AMD has at that time.My recordings right now are not that complex but stepsonish will be sending me his songs to do some mixing/mastering fairly soon..Then I'd more than likely need faster everything.Eventually I'd like to add a cpl of NVME drives.The PCIE 4 is faster  so I can load plugins from them and have them react in a close  to real time with out any or veeery limited lag/latency then render it out as high a quality as I can get it to be.Then an upgrade to a more professional 3d program that will use as many cores as I can throw at it. So renders don't take a loooooong time. And have more features which need more speed etc. Well that's the plan anyhow.

Yeah your probably good for awhile with that X370. Any NVMe drive is a upgrade over a SSD. I still use my Intel 750 AIC and even though it taps out around 1.5GB/s, its still plenty of fast for me. Que-Depth and IOPs have a greater impact than a high throughput. Unfortunately many drivers are advertised at Que-1, so it not really pushing it hard. If you are reading and writing to the drive at the same time, it can help a good amount. That why I like this Intel DC (Enterprise) SSDs. Intel knows how to a make a good in-house controller.

I just buy used Intel DC drives off ebay. like 3.84TB NVMe U.2 drivers are $400. Not a bad price :)

Yeah IM good for a little bit at least till the GAS kicks back in(gear acquisition syndrome)   Never bought  an Intel hard drive before.Good to know options. I do plan on at least 1 NVME drive for this machine.Eventually 2 or more with the switch to a different MB. 1 for OS and programs, 1 to send work to and bigger spinners for storage and backups.Mb right now only has 1 spot for NVME and a bunch of SATA spots. Them PCIE Optane drives look interesting from Intel.Not too sure about suitability though.And they be pricey.

Does the sound on these mother boards with dacs in them actually route to the S/pdif ports? Most of the boards say the audio is electrically  isolated,so will that have less noise using S/pdif wise. My amp already uses a burr brown dac on all the channels192k 24 bits. Just wondering cause my amp has an S/pdif port.

Good question. Well I assume the S/PDIF is part of the on-board audio components. But since its a digital signal, it doesn't need to be isolated to avoid crosstalk. I thought S/PDIF only supported Stereo 24/196. How are you running more than 2 channels?

Currently I'm not using the S/pdif on my amp I cant . My onboard sound card don't have S/pdif.I'm using  3.5mm to RCA cables. 3.5mm from onboard sound to inputs on the amp.

The amp is a 7.2 home theater receiver from Yamaha with Klipsch  2 satellites and center, 2 Sony monitors plus 2 Optimus monitors from radio shack(old as methusila) and a Klipsch powered subwoofer.Yeah I know mixed speakers not a perfect match. Using the multi channel input on the amp to get the sound from Pc. The S/pdif may/could be used for a better audio production set of monitors is what I'm thinking. Run straight direct setting from amp to the near field monitors switch inputs and still have the rest of the speakers to play games(if I ever get into it again) and listen to music while I'm playing.

Don't think the mother  board likes this new processor. Pc reboots over night or after long period of me not doing stuff on it. Plus sound makes a grrrrrt elecrical sound thru the speakers now and again plus mouse randomly stops/freezes for 3-5 to 8 seconds when sound is heard sometimes. New MB  may be coming up sooner than later. Maybe one of the updates from windows is the culprit. I know for a fact windows messes with reapers functioning if you put off an update for too long.

I can vouch for the Asus TUF ... I went with the 570 but I am curious about the compatibility for the other older chipset models...

This should be good :thumbsup:

Uh to be honest I haven't checked it but does that x370 support NVMe ?

Thats a bummer that your x370 isn't playing nice. From what I've read, its mostly a memory issue. Might be worth a check with Memtest86 to make sure your system is stable on that front.

This board does support 1 NVME. Memory "SHOULD" be fine I'm not overclocking it or changing any of the settings but I will checkout Memtest86 just to make sure. Did go into the  event viewer and have seen multiple errors ,power to the kernel error and more..Total number of events 15,371 in  event viewer most are warnings.

Ran Memtest86 had zero errors. At least its narrowing it down a bit as to what the problem is.
