AMD Ryzen 5950X

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm looking into setting up a new workstation.
So far, Threadrippers seems to be out of my range >_< So I opted for the 5950X.
I'm mainly aiming to utilize the threads for simulations.

Here's what i'm looking at:
CPU: 5950X
Memory: 128gb
Board: Asus TUF X570

Any recommendations based on your experience using 5950X?
Should I choose a different board?
Is there noticeable difference in choosing particular memory speeds?

The Hardware section of the Think Procedural Discord seems to be more active and there are a few 5950x users on there as well.

Ryzen 3xxx/5xxx perform better with highly clocked memory, so getting the fastest RAM you can afford is usually advisable. Dual rank sticks also perform a bit beter with Ryzen, so prioritize clockspeed, real latency (divide latency by speed, lower is better) and rank in that order.
