Any issues with this Ryzen 3700X configuration?

Hi, thanks for your feedback! Mostly concerned about the motherboard (it's one of the only choices on stock locally) and the RAM (running at 3200 MHz).

I am aware the BIOS needs updating (probably), and the retailer will take care of that.

Are there any other points of concern?

Do you really need 32GB of Ram?

Why would someone spend 200 dollars for a PCIe 4.0 SSD drive that this board doesn't support anyway.

That GPU from ASUS is the worst RX 5700 XT you can go with! (as thermals concerns)

You are kidding right?

That board supports PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 interface that's PCIe 3.0 compliant.

This Sabrent Rocket 4.0 (hence the number 4) supports PCIe 4.0 speeds but will run only at PCIe 3.0 speed on that board.

It's a total waste of money putting a PCIe Gen. 4.0 SSD drive on a PCIe 3.0 gen. board.

That's the SSD drive that's suited for a B450 chip-set board, unless you are using a X570 chip-set board.

The GPU does well in terms of thermals, far below the stock cooling setup: https://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/dominic-moass/asus-rx-5700-tuf-gaming-x3-oc-edition-review/16/

I have different results on that matter and unless Asus states differently i can't recommend that particular GPU.

Worst 5700 XT Period, Asus TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700 XT OC, DON'T BUY!
