/// April 2020 Update: I got an open box ASUS X 570 ROG Strix-E from Micro Center for $190 including tax so I added an additional picture with the new motherboard.
// January 2020 Update: I've upgraded to the Ryzen 9 3900X and 5700xt. I'm very happy with my current X470 Strix-F motherboard for the 3900X and I know faster RAM will help in the future but I have this 3000 kit overclocked to 3333 which is fine for now. The strix-F X470 has 6 phases using a IR3599 for the vrms and I use a 4.45 GHz all-core OC for my workstation tasks and PBO2 for gaming. I also upgraded some of the non-performance parts; I got some power supply extensions to match the teal of my build as well as a pack of 2 DeepCool ARGB strips. I also started using JackNet RGB Sync to connect my motherboard and Corsair peripherals. I'm very impressed with the software and wished I would have found it sooner.
/// Overview // I did have a 2700X + Vega 56 in this build from last spring and I recently upgraded the CPU/GPU to the 3900X and 5700XT. The colors are teal/blue & purple and based off my logo for Cosmic Elegy. I snagged a black Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic & an ASUS ROG Strix-F X470 from Micro Center last year and I love both so no need to upgrade those anytime soon. The PSU is a bit of an overkill for this system, but I got the RM1000x renewed for an amazing deal on Amazon. I upgraded my nvme drive and I also got the DeepCool RF120s for an amazing deal on Amazon; 2 5-packs for $40 each.
/// Uses // This build is my main workstation I use full time for work. I game occasionally but this isn't a "gaming" machine. I run Ableton Live 10.1, the iZotope Music Production Suite, Davinci Resolve, the Adobe suite (Photoshop, Illustrator mainly), DMXIS, Show Buddy, Handbrake, dbpoweramp, Voicemeeter, OBS & more. Plus when I do game, I use this machine as well to power triple monitors and my GT Omega / Fanatec sim-racing setup (CSL Elite & CSR Elite Pedals) in iRacing, Assetto Corsa & Automobilista.
/// Settings // I keep my 3900X at 4.45 GHz all-core OC at 1.28v most of the time. If I need to render something that uses AVX then I'll drop it down to 4.35 in Ryzen Master. I have my RAM overclocked to 3333 at 16-18-18-35 and using the timings from the Ryzen RAM calculator. The 5700XT I have set to the max 2150 MHz, +50% power limit with an undervolt set to 1080 mv. When I game this puts the actual clocks around 2050 MHz.
/// Benchmarks // In cinebench R20 my highest score is 7670 and for R15 it's 3536 but I haven't done much tweaking to try to get any higher. I'm sure with faster RAM I could get closer to 8k in R20. My best Firestrike run has been 24633 (3dmark.com/fs/21611232) and in FS Extreme (3dmark.com/fs/21608444).
