    Mate, you are arguing my point for me. The reason why you had to mention the networking hardware is exactly what goes for the audio codecs. The biggest factor when it comes to sweetest perf is not the ethernet/codec in itself the but the hardware thats attached to it and the purpose its being...

    Seeing how OP has kind of narrowed down to b550s posting this wouldn't make much sense but Pro carbon unlike its price bracket counter parts has a pcie 2.0x4 slot as the secondary x16 aka shoddy pcie circuitry. Also I would suggest veteran members to refrain from making blanket statements on...

    As much as I love MSI I would suggest going with the Asus TUF B550m wifi and saving money. Especially when the cpu in question is a 3700x.

    Thats not the point mate. The point is why offer so many pci slots which wouldnt have worked with neither zen, zen+, just to jack up the price. For the price it commanded a person could have added 1-2k and gone with x470. Thats why it never got much attention unlike tomahawk.

    Hopefully this explains what I mean. And doublers are not as effective as they might sound. Lastly the size of heatsink doesn't make much sense when its just a blob with barely any surface area.

    Now that cooler bit is something I wholeheartedly agree with. Intel definitely needs to up its game in that department.

    Those are American prices. They hold no value when buying something in India. With the inbuilt gpu, cheaper mobos, better performance, and lower tdp. Intel i7 > Amd for someone building a full system. 1600554999 Sure thing mate. Hit me up anytime for anything msi.

    You could have just messaged me dude. I have msi India tech reps in our whatsapp group. Would have gotten you a replacement without all that hassle.

    Can you please share a single benchmark where 3700x beats i7 10700? Tbh 10700 even comes with an inbuilt gpu. Also, Idk how does para phrasing conjecture and voicing personal opinions work against an evidence of simple, clear numbers. Lastly I have used the b450 pro carbon AC myself and I...

    I dont get the purpose of the essay that you wrote, bud. Especially when the benchmarks and power figures are easily available with a few google searches. But, yeah, some competition in market generally ends up benefitting the customers. Lastly, OP cannot go wrong with either of those two. But...

    I have manually increased its power limit so it can maintain constant 4.65ghz on all cores. Not smart comparing it with a stock chip. And a lot of people still go with intel, irrespective of the market trend. For me it was motherboard availability. 1600550270 I hope this fixes any confusion...

    Idk how much synthetic benchmarks matter but my 3Dmark Timespy score with a 10700+2060Super is pretty much comparable to a 3600x+2070super. Both tests had the same rams, etc. LOL.

    TUF B550m/B550, either would be good enough for anything from a 3100-3950x 1600547059 Btw if you havent commited any money on the amd platform as of now I would suggest taking a look at Intel i7 10700 non K and a b460m mortar wifi. Thats what Im using rn and the proccy is giving me constant...

    Why is noone suggesting Asus? Their TUF series is literally killing it with the B550 and RTX3xxx gpus. Heck their AI mic tech works better than RTX voice.
