The issues you see need to be wieghted against what don't see and Ryzen has been selling gangbusters. Mine system runs fine and been building Ryzen systems since 1800x and each ZEN thereafter. Doing a 5900x soon and have buddy running x570 Hero wifi with the 5950x & 4xRAM no problems.

    I appreciate the encouragement and specific tips. I will be reading here in the AMD f470/570 forum a lot in the coming weeks as I wait for the CPU/Mobo/GPU to come into stock for a January build timeline. Hopefully I can pick up the best ideas top put together a blazing, rock solid system.

    One last one, Dark Hero - because of this (dynamic oc switcher) which the older HERO wifi, like mine, does not have.

    I want high performance with reliability - I'm not after OC bragging.

    I've built Intel 4770K, 5960X, 10600K and 10700K systems that have all been rock solid. XMP and maybe a minor overclock but targeting to keep long-term temps under 70C.

    I've built my 3950X with quality parts - PSU, mobo and RAM. The 3950X absolutely smokes everything I've used for video encodes. But I'm finding the last several BIOS versions are giving me WHEA errors and frequent restarts.

    I was planning on swapping for a 5950X which was driving my BIOS updates. Now I'm struggling just to get back to where I was a few months back with the 3950X. At best, that stability was somewhat less than my Intel experiences.

    In the back of my mind I've wondered this exact question. It's frustrating because for the type of work I'm interested in, Intel can't come close without getting into serious XEON territory....
    Have you tried rolling back to the BIOS that worked well? If you started updates once the 5000 processors were adding support, that is known to cause problems. AMD and Asus are tuning these to 5000 series of processors.

    First-generation was certainly not without its problems, however, Zen has matured to a point where a seasoned enthusiast should have no trouble navigating any platform-related quirks quickly if any are to be found at all. It's not a valid reason to choose Intel over X570.

    Appreciate the reply SS. What's with the rash of posts about whea errors and spontaneous reboots? Are these just tuning issues with the new Zen3 chips? Did I jump into the AMD forum at a transition point? These threads didn't seem OC related as much as just good old fashion memory stability issues. I pick my hardware as carefully as Jesus chose his disciples, so for me that means sticking to the QVL and choosing quality parts wisely. I also do not update my BIOS unless something is not working, or more performance or functionality is clearly offered. These rules keep my rigs running fast and stable.

    If the same approach works on the latest AMD kit, I am all for it. Because that's what I need/want. It's the current posts by experience enthusiasts that has me spooked. Maybe I jumped in at a point that doesn't properly reflect the current state of affairs.
