Test Setup

We test newer AM4 CPUs with Gigabyte's X570 Aorus Master, but original/first-generation Ryzen CPUs are tested on the MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon AC since they are incompatible with X570.

For memory, we use 16GB (2 x 8GB) of Corsair 3,466MHz Vengeance Pro RGB DDR4 for all CPUs. As of the launch of 3rd Gen Ryzen, we have found this speed to be stable across our entire selection of AM4 CPUs, and it's also the speed we use with all Intel CPUs. We're also using an EK WaterBlocks EK-MLC Phoenix 240mm CPU cooler and Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition.

Test System

  • Motherboard Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master (MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon AC for first-gen Ryzen)
  • Memory 16GB (2 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3,466MHz DDR4
  • Graphics card Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition
  • PSU Corsair RM850i
  • SSD Samsung 970 Evo 2TB
  • CPU cooler EK WaterBlocks EK-MLC Phoenix 240mm
  • Operating system Windows 10 64-bit
