Not too bad, but the 3000-MHz ram does seem an odd choice paired with this board and processor!

If you're not bothered about the next gen CPU support and RGB, you can save a few quid buying separately though.

For example, on Amazon, the 3600 CPU with 3000MHz dual channel 16GB RAM and the B450M DS3H can be had for just over £300 at the moment:

amazon.co.uk/AMD…8-3
amazon.co.uk/GIG…8-8
amazon.co.uk/Cru…8-5

For an extra tenner, you can switch out the RAM for some Corsair 3200MHz:

amazon.co.uk/Cor…8-3

This is it ladies and gents, no way would you get 3 gens out of intel.

Nonsense compared to what? making users buy a new socket at every upgrade?
Motherboard is £173 from AWD, and probably not the best value choice.
The CPU (3600) is £147 with the current posted ebay deal
£73 will get you patriot viper steel 3200 MHz CL16 Ram, which is better than this and well worth the extra £7.

Essentially this is only a deal if you really want that RGB strip

Just a shame about the memory, would have considered this if it was 3200Mhz

Compared to them saying 400 boards would be supports hense why companies like MSI made the tomahawk max guarantee future proof for one more gen at least.
nothing in it between 3000mhz / 3200mhz, only get the higher if the price is good... otherwise stick to 3000mhz were the old golden rule..

saving £20 then individs.. + free rog light thing..

= deal.

So if a 3600 was desired and a x570 was desired, more value to cost/performance in this then individual items of such which ud prob could get 3200mhz for £3 more then the typical individual 3000mhz variant.

Ordered this, finally bit the bullet. Thanks for sharing the deal!

Don't know. I see them as the equivalent to "Go Faster" stripes that used to be on cars

It almost certainly makes it all the thingys inside go faster.
i just bought a b450 mb a few days ago im not bitter i mean hell when i go to upgrade in 2 - 3 years time whats an extra £100 the bios capacity issue is real shortsighted maybe
A tad bit of an overkill mobo for the 3600, B-450 would've been suffice, but definitely the best path for future proofing. And as many have said, would have been nice to get closer to 3600Mhz, but 3000 should OC easily to 3200Mhz, and the difference in most applications would be none to negligible.

Thing is that we're a little bit snookered for for upgrading with the x500/570 series boards too. DDR5 is coming and AM4 is not guranteed for the next generation of chips anyway so you only get one extra CPU generation out of X500 series boards as things stand.

we were never going to get more than one extra generation of CPU out of and 400 or 500 series boards so if you're buying this you may as well wait until Ryzen 4000 comes out and prices calm down unless you are desperate for a new PC but either way you will not be getting any future generations of Ryzen on this platform.

3200mhz is the sweet spot, any faster especially on games doesn't seem to make much difference
AMD specify 3200MHz for this processor
amd.com/en/…600

I posted the question on Aria to ask why they are using under spec RAM for the processor..... and it's been ignored.

Ignores that for Intel it's generally been 2 updates which have been a Tick-Tock so barely counts as 2. For AMD Zen 2 was a major upgrade over Zen and Zen+ for B450 and X470 owners. X570 will support Ryzen Gen 1 through 4 and who knows maybe even Zen 5.

AMD should have not made such a big deal of criticising Intel but they've provided much more flexibility in upgrading compared to Intel in recent years.

I wouldn't be so sure that it will be supported. Bios size not the issue. Quite afew x570 mobo have 16MB bios chip only.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but i'm interested in upgrading my hardware (motherboard, CPU, RAM & cooling - don't care about fancy lights or go-faster stripes). Used to tinker around upgrading components many many moons ago, but so out of touch with the latest tech but happy to do the upgrade myself. I've currently got an old Intel i7 9200 and 6GB ram (DDR3 800/1066). Is it worth upgrading from this? Could I get a decent upgrade for £300-£400? If so, any recommendations?
I'm looking to build with the 3600, people who mention a low Mhz paired with the cpu have a valid point.. however, could I not just overclock the ram to 3200mhz?

yes there is a good chance you could to be honest
You can over clock the 3000mhz ram to 3200+ with this mobo

Will be a massive upgrade from a i7 920, I had that cpu back in the day, amazing cpu that was.

I would recommend
b450 msi mortar £93 but no support for Ryzen 4000 series. Ram at £70 and cpu at £145. Total £310.

If you wanted a x570 board which will support next gen Ryzen chips, go. With a msi x570 tomahawk which will retail around £200 release date June. That will make it £415 but will be future proof.

If you go the b450 route you will have enough money to get ssd storage.

Thanks so much for the feedback. As you can tell, I don't upgrade very often so i'd be happy to go for the more expensive option to ensure future proof. I've already got a 256GB SSD as my main drive, and a spare for storage so I think all I need are the parts you mentioned. Any recommendations on cooling/fans? My current box isn't quiet and it would be nice to have it run as quiet as possible (although i'm not convinced about putting water near electricity).

I had a 920 (albeit overclocked) and 12GB ram and went with a 3600x and 16GB ram - amazing upgrade.
The main issue was the mainstream platform being stuck with B450 until next month for B550,which is probably a lot of post summer 2019 Zen2 owners being dissapointed with no Zen3,and amd calling out intel on reddit for their constant changes. People who bought b450 with zen+ have another generation.

One of the big german system integrators was also promised by amd,b450 would work with zen3. They then found out last week,it was not going to happen. LOL.
