    Question Will my 3950x still work if I update my BIOS to beta on X570

    Was looking to upgrade a system to a 5900x, from a 3950x. My concern is that the change may be irreversible and there's no going back in case something was wrong with the 5900x? Or does this only apply to B450 and x470 boards? If anyone can shed light that'd be great. Thanks!

    [SOLVED] Upgrade to Ryzen 2700X for less money or get the 3600 instead?

    I'm considering upgrading to 2700X or 3600 from my lackluster i3 7100. I'm choosing MSI B450 A PRO MAX as the motherboard. This way, 2700X setup ($265) would be 12% cheaper than that of 3600 ($305), saving me up to $40. I know 3600 performs a bit better than 2700X but is it worth the $40 premium?

Back in 2014 I had my brand new I7 4790K and I've done some research and self tested what was the best method to apply thermal paste on the CPU and what was better (by 2ºC - 3ºC) was draw a vertical line with the paste across the CPU.
