Question Ryzen 2600x Build without OC or Bios changes

Feb 12, 2019

Can anyone give me a good Ryzen 2600x Build without OC or Bios changes. I just want to buy parts,build a PC and use it without any stress that my RAM needs tweaking in BIos because PC doesn't boot etc.
I just don't want to waste time to tweak things in BIOS.

What I already have:
  • RTX 2080 & GTX 1080
  • PSU RM1000x 1000w
  • Fractal design R6 case
Two more requirements:
  1. This PC has to work with these 2 GPUs, no SLI.
  2. I should be able to upgrade it to Ryzen 3000.


All AM4 boards will support 3000.

As for RAM support, that vast majority of kits should be supported out of the box at 2133/2400MHz, although enabling the XMP profiles is certainly recommended - but also where it gets tricky.

What are you trying to achieve with the dual GPUs? Provided your workloads just need to be able to 'see' the cards, and B450 with dual x16 physical (x16 and x4 electrically) slots should suffice - although X470 is probably a better route to go.


If you don't want to even touch bios don't buy a ryzen processor until the 3000 comes out. The ram will default to 2400 or 2133 most likely and will rather largely hurt your possible performance. Once again if you want Ryzen 3000 you'll have to update your BIOS to use it. If only enabling xmp is okay then you can get high speed ram do that and be done. Just get a good cooler and pbo will basically oc it for you

I need to be able to let windows see my GPU. I use 2 GPUs non-sli in blender 3d rendering. It favours double GPU setup.

I already have x16 and x4 motheboard with my i7 4770 but it won't allow me to use my second GPU because first slot uses 16 lanes and it is max for my CPU...

No sure what to do.

If you don't want to even touch bios don't buy a ryzen processor until the 3000 comes out.

I've built 2 systems with the exact configuration below, no problems even with XFR/precision boost enabled and running at the XMP profile at the same speed as the one labeled on the packaging. For further context, both systems have been running without issue (to the best of my knowledge) for just over two months without error and they were fully stable when I ran benchmarks.

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 7 2700 3.2 GHz 8-Core Processor ($246.66 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Gigabyte - X470 AORUS GAMING 5 WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard ($187.38 @ Newegg)
Memory: ADATA - XPG GAMMIX D10 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($105.10 @ Newegg)

You had listed a desire to use a 2600X in the build and I don't see any reason why that would be a problem but I do find the extra two cores (4 threads) to be a nice touch since it only costs an extra $30 or so depending on your vender. That video card should also be fine to swap out, that's just the one I used in this particular build. As for the requirement with the x16 + x4 configuration, I'm not sure on this board but it is a solid X470 mobo but I would check the lane assignment on the Gigabyte website beforehand.

Oh, one final thought, you may want to upgrade the PSU to something in the 650w-700w range since you'll have 2 gfx cards (the build, as listed, consumes around 300w).

Can you recommend a mobo for Ryzen and Intel (i9 9900k) with 2x PCIe?
I can't decide what to do, which platform go with. I want a CPU for next 5-6 years.
Thank you very much!
