    Well, I am planning just use my old box and PSU. Just changing mb (maybe Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO WIFI), SSD (Samsung NVME 960/970 EVO) and DDR4 brand is depending on price (anyway, well known brand), like Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 C16. Honestly, my builds never look so great as your one (great job based on your above photos).

    My experience with Gigabyte MB and Samsung SSD have always been good, so I will stick with them.

    Power supplies deteriorate with age (caps can wear out) If the Power supply is past the manufactures warranty point then why risk all that nice new hardware on a questionable source of power? The power supply is the heart of your entire system, and one should not skimp out on that item.
    Although the newer AM4 boards/cpu's are not as fussy as the AM4 hardware a year or two ago, it won't hurt to be sure it'll work by checking the memory qvl list from Gigabyte. Nothing worse that putting a new pc together and having it bsod or crash all the time, or not booting up at all.
    Can't go wrong with Samsung SSD's
    Thanks for the compliment on my build, I think there's a couple things I would like do better, but I am limited by that case.

    Ryzen, so good i bought Intel o_O Too many board and ram issues, constantly waiting for bios fixes, cobblers to that. 9600K arriving today :)

    Ive been using Crucial ram for a few years now. plug em in and they run at their rated speed, 2133, 2400 without any fiddling. Ive used sport tactical and elite on amd fm2+, sport on intel. no problems at all, stable. :)

    Ive been an amd user ever since my first seelf build, a barton core athlon xp2500 on an abit board with via chipset but all these constant problems with ryzen 1/2/3xxx i really dont give a s**t about amd anymore. I wont be waving the flag for intel but i will give an honest opinion on what ive got and how it works.

    Kim100 1000 to 1 rank outsider but have you tested the ryzens hdd? download and run HD Sentinel, see what shows up. or any other hdd testing/monitoring tool.

    Could be a crappy sata cable.

    i had an old system that was beeping like R2-D2 on speed. beeps are hard to make sense of, so i replace cpu ram and board only to find out later that it was the bastard hdd was f**ked and the new system beeped like crazy. :mad: Ive been there, it aint funny :(

    Same problem with three different hard drives, original traditional spinning disk and two new solid state drives, all with different cables. As soon as it gets to a working temp it starts freezing, the more you use it the more it freezes until its unusable. As I mentioned a few posts back the PC will run MX Linux ok but there are error messages at start up and close, one is "Unable to write to IOMMU perf counter" this would appear to be a graphics issue which would point to the CPU or board. Linux is less demanding than Windows and just gets bye I suppose. I could only get MX Linux to run all the others I tried [Two were Mint & Lubuntu] failed with the above error message:confused:

    Getting my 3960x with Gigabyte Designare system still this year. Looking forward playing with it. Coupled with a 2080ti for 3D rendering.

    Not sure where to look or ask. This seemed like a knowledgeable thread. My old WinXP Abit IS7 MB died. I need a simple project to replace hardware in that old tower, so that I can run x64 softwares, with currently supported device drivers. Can anyone list some particulars like an inexpensive MB and reliable processor for a personal build winter project? I am not a gamer. Hyper-speed is not important. I would like to try AMD.

    You need to provide your budget first before anybody can make a recommendation on new hardware. If you want to go "economical" then go with a Ryzen 3200 or 2400g cpu with graphics . If you game and have a need for speed then you'll need other options ($$$$)
