    Based on reading this, air cooling should be able to be used with all these processors, since it can even be used with the 7950X. This makes me want to get a new motherboard just to use this magnificent processor lol. I take it our motherboards aren't compatible with it?
    No, different socket, etc. From what I've read our Mobo is going to top out at the 5950X. (there was a 5800x3D with more cache, but from what I read the 5950x performed better overall?) And I've already missed the sale on the 5900x when they were half priced... Chit! And yes I see air coolers for the 5950x.

    If it helps the 7950x is not a "huge" difference from the 5950x. But the 5950x IS a "HUGE" difference from the 2700x we got now...

    Yea those RAM compatibility lists are causing me headaches... Why does it list 8x16gb when we only have 4 slots? And then you try and find the same RAM to BUY, but the part number will be slightly different...? So that defeats the point of using the compatibility list? I've never been that picky buying RAM. I used to just buy the same DDR/Pin and be done...? But I've never spent 3-400 bucks on RAM either... The $180-190 64GB sets seem to all be slower RAM? (Crucials compatibility tool lists some faster RAM, but none of it's in stock that I saw?)



    Question for anyone who knows.
    RAM that's listed as compatible for the 5950X 3rd gen processors, is that not going to be compatible with the 2nd gen 2700x? OR is it just not going to work "as well" as it does with the 3rd gen processor? (and it looks like the RAM I was looking at is now out of stock anyway... Chit!)

    Maybe I'll just buy RAM listed for the 5950X and let it sit till I get the processor and then put them both in.

    Also, can we upgrade to the latest BIOS with the 2700x? Cause I could at least start that process and try and get ready for when I have new hardware. If I can ever find it in stock again...




    Also, I wanted to thank the MOD that did the magic to let me start posting... Thanks!

    Using the same RAM modules (w/ specific timings) on both CPUs with 100% success it is just like a lottery win. It might work it might not.

    Regarding the BIOS update, I do have another similar question; Is downgrading from the latest version 6042 to 4804 possible ? Or there is a "lock" ? Has anyone tried this scenario successfully ?
