    Beware the MSI Gaming Edge. It overheats to really high levels.

        Not everyone running it with an overclocked 3900X at 4.2 all cores. It is good enough for a 3700X and below, enabling the benefits of pcie 4.0 on ryzen 3000 series. I've tested 3900X all default with A320M-K from asus and it is running fine, clocked at 4.0 all core, not the best, but it runs.

        • -1 vote

          It runs, but for how long? It’s clearly got VRM cooling issues.

          • +3 votes

            @cnut: More than HU tested X570 serie. You probably dont know how ryzen 3000 works, if cooling on CPU and vrm capability of MB is good enough, 3900X can eat up to 170W of power with PBO + 200MHz or 4.2 OC all cores on some benchmark. However, with cheap MB, MB manufacture caped high-end CPU at AMD spec (105W, 65W or 4.0GHz all cores which ever comes first) results that some A320 can tame 3900X at default spec without throttling issue both from CPU and VRM side. In this particular example, I ran that 3900X with A320M-K for 2 hours of prime small in a case with good airflow, I saw no problems. Of course I don't have any equipment to read the temp on the VRM correctly, but the temp reported in HWinfo64 is totally acceptable.

              @Ruth Hill: Mate, we are talking about the issue with MSI Gaming Edge X570 here which based on HU review is a board to avoid. I also don't think the A320M-K info is helping. If anything, it actually shows for most people, you don't actually need X570.

              For people actually want/need a X570, it doesn't make sense to buy one with VRM cooling issue. The issue with MSI non-top end X570 is they've gone backwards with VRM cooling (that their X470/B450 with similar VRM setup actually run cooler).

          • -1 vote

            @cnut: It doesn't. It's just not as good as the other x570s which are brilliant.

            It's the same VRM design as the Tomahawk which everyone here recommends and is obviously fine. It hasn't rwgressed, just the other x570s are a big step up

            The video you linked is with a intentionally overvolted CPU. It's not a realistic scenario and they were trying to simulate what they think a 3950x overclocked would be like.

            •  

              @Ark94: No, the other X570s in the price range didn't exactly have super duper VRM, just the cooling has improved. Basically, we don't know why MSI went backwards and put in inferior cooling setup on VRM for their mid range X570.

              •  

                @netsurfer: They didn't!
                It's literally the same VRM design and cooling as the Tomahawk. Look it up. It's only an issue in the vid because they're using a crazy overvolted 3900X vs the reasonably overclocked 2700X usually used in B450 motherboard reviews.

                There's no magic going on

                HWUB conclusions are that every X570 board is a big step up from previous gen because, even the budget boards are better than the top end X470s with the exception of MSI

      Definitely wouldn't combine it with a 3950X or overclocked 3900X but should be a decent enough choice for 3800X or lower. If you are looking for a wifi board to combine with a 3600, then it's a great choice compared to the ATX B450 wifi boards.

    Does the MSI X570 MB supports thunderbolt?

    •  

      That MSI motherboard does not support Thunderbolt. It is a technology developed by Intel, so it'll be hard to find in AMD's AM4 motherboards.

      In fact, MSI doesn't have any X570 motherboards that support Thunderbolt.

      But ASRock has 2 motherboards that support TB 3.0, if you search for 'Thunderbolt' on the page.

      Why do you need it though? All that bandwidth has mostly been necessary for external GPUs that can be connected to laptops or driving crazy display setups maybe. You can always add a PCIe based TB 3.0 card by the way…

      •  

        I have a samsung cj79 monitor. wanted to connect to the TB on MB to activate the usb hub on the monitor.
        can't see other way other than using TB.

        •  

          Oh, wow. Kinda makes sense I guess…I mean it's just 2 USB 3.0 ports. Requirement of TB sounds kinda overkill if you're not passing power and/or video along. Well, hope you find a solution.

          •  

            @DisabledUser294758: from watching a recent Linus Tech Tips video, he was using a Thunderbolt PCI card since the Intel TB solution wasn't working properly on the Intel motherboard.

            Alternatively you can buy the white coloured (can't recall manufacturer) AMD motherboard with built in TB, water cooling etc.. it's only $1500 AUD! :)

  •  

    The MSI x570 is good deal, The Asus x570 4GB deal they had a while back was a bit better with the free games. Would be good if they had a deal on some 8GB x580's so I could move the old Asus x570 into a second PC and do a minor upgrade.

        Currently is $70 with free shipping but I have seen plenty of deals for $60 for a while. Remember even the "regular price of WD Green is $80 and only $52 with this special offer. Similar if can wait and scan for deal you should be able to get Crucial BX500 480GB around the same price point.

    I wonder about the planning model here? It's all about getting people excited but how many can get to a store? Its a big country we are in but this sale is defined by being close to those near a store and how much is available anyway? I am about 100km away (it used to be 2 km)and these sort of specials evaporate even when you live nearby. I will not be driving 100 + 100km to get a special that may be sold out when I get there, these sort of things are why I buy almost all tech online now days after 40 years of experience of shops and importing tech. Can't wait to see what the experiences and stories are the next few days.

    This specific WD model is one of the lowest possible performance of a SSD. Highly don't recommend it!!!

    check simple performance comparison with a low transcend:

    https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/WD-Green-480GB-2018-vs...

    you can change the transcend with any model you like.

    • +3 votes

      It's fine to be honest. I threw in one when I sold my NUC (as a freebie). The buyer was very happy. If you have family members just using PC for Web surfing, watch videos, basic word processing and gaming, it's enough for sure. I still have a junk class BX200 SSD which I use for USB 3 portable hard drive… Honestly, given how slow USB 3.0/3.1 gen 1 is, you can just get any dirt cheap SSD and use it through USB 3.

      Unless you really can tell the difference in a blindfold test, it's best not to get too carry away with sequential read/write benchmark speed. Sure, the sustained write speed on these WD green is horrible, but do you write 400GB data to your SSD all the time? If yes, from another SSD?

      • +2 votes

        I don't disagree with you mate , for a simple setup or game console it works fine.

      you can change the transcend with any model you like

      Any model, for example this? WD Green 480GB vs Transcend SSD320 128GB

      Does not work as you claimed!

      •  

        Hey mate,

        If you click on the drop down right under "Transcend TS128GSSD320" opposite of WD one, you'll find any model you want. I can't post a screenshot here otherwise i'd have done.

    Might want to avoid Ultimo if you are after Cosair RAM. Got there before store opening and was told there was only one left when I asked for 2 sets. I told the guy it was pretty poor to run specials and you have only one in stock. As I was walking out of store noticed the box i was given was already opened. When i took it back, the guy pulled out a new one. Why bother with specials… I am so unimpressed with this mob.

      Hot enough for coffee and cooking…

    •  

      Still better than half the x370 and x470 boards. Unless you plan to have a fanless case and overclock the snot out of an 3900x or 3950x I don't see a problem

      •  

        Do you have any proof that is runs cooler with 3600/3700/3800 chips?

        Or are you just assuming?

        The dude tested in 20c ambient temps, that would be cooler than any hot aussie summer day with airflow (which would be hot air) lol!

        •  

          Well yes my proof is I own a 3700x and 3900x and have tested with this x570 board. Like I said before I wouldn't pair a overclocked 3900x/3950x (when released) with this mobo long term but a 3600x/3700x is absolutely fine (65w TDP) 3700x draws less power than the previous gens 2700x (Which I also own and use)

          For the latest Ryzen CPUs I just enable PBO and avoid manual overclocking as it's simply not worth the marginal gains. Also are you going to be rendering out blender workloads 100% of the time like in the HU review??? That was used as a worst case scenario with no active airflow and an early bios revision. I would say people wouldn't, most likely they will be using this mobo in a gaming rig with some case fans and possibly with air-con (say 24-26c) in the room. While Steve from Hardware Unboxed x570 reviews are excellent, do check out Buildzoids detailed x570 mobo Youtube reviews. They are next level detailed, so much so Gamers Nexus use him for mobo/GPU reviews.

          •  

            @solrak: so what are the board temps when stressed with 3700x ?

            screenshots?

              •  

                @solrak: Honestly, X570 Gaming Edge WiFi compromises a bit too much.

                • VRM. Buildzoids honestly, to me, isn't objective enough sometimes. He tried to play down Asus' claims (and yet he cannot really prove his points with real facts). Anyway, Steve checked with Buildzoids and Buildzoids was "not surprised" with Steve's results.
                • If you are really getting X570, you really want a decent VRM. Testing in Australia's winter and spring seasons isn't accurate enough. But, if you are just going to use 3700X, pretty much any board will work fine.
                • Intel Wireless-AC 3168, Bluetooth 4.2 - that's really cost cutting. AX200 (WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5) is $30. 3168 - a 1x1 setup… come on MSI… you basically just get the cheapest Intel offering. 433 Mbps.
                • Realtek LAN port… I know at this price point you cannot expect Intel LAN… but this is called Gaming Edge… so where is the edge?

                If you want to be pragmatic and you want a cost effective solution with 2 m.2 and 6 SATA, X570 chipset is a must for you and you expect to take advantage of PCIe 4.0 later on, sure you can get this and pair it with 3700X. Obviously, you also don't give a damn about the subpar Wifi (i.e. you plan to use LAN port). However, it is just not worth recommending knowing its VRM quality is now considered subpar.

            •  

              @neosin: For 3700X, you really don't need to worry too much about motherboard as it will most likely run cooler than 2700X.

              Two things though… (1) X570, I don't see any reason getting it if it won't run 3950X well (2) solrak has the board and unfortunately, it is difficult for him to be 100% objective about this.

              •  

                @netsurfer: Errh I never said I owned a gaming edge x570, just used one (borrowed a mates) with my 3700x/3900x CPUs. So it's NOT difficult to remain completely objective. I personally run a Asus Strix mobo which is middle of the road as far as a x570 goes. My point being I got it for a great price which made it worth while for me. Same goes for the average joe who must have an entry level x570 at a decent price.

                •  

                  @solrak: Gaming Edge X570 WiFi is a board to avoid. MSY falsely written Bluetooth 5 support. I don't find it objective for someone who purchased an Asus X570 board and then telling people it is okay to go MSI Gaming Edge X570 WiFi. Buildzoid already indicated it has the bottom of the pile VRM.

                  Again, the WiFi option is a joke in today's standard. 1x1 WiFi setup. Why do that on a board that supports PCIe 4.0? That is worse than spending $30 + a PCIe x1 adapter card and get WiFi 6 and BT 5.

                  All of the items in the special this week are clearance items. They are cheap because at RRP, most people won't bothered with them. Reduced price in hope that people will cave in.

                  •  

                    @netsurfer: "They are cheap because at RRP, most people won't bothered with them." I agree! For the "Clearance" price it's a half decent deal. For RRP I would look at other x570s in that price range or deal on another mobo. Mute point now as the deal is over.

    Err….how do I go "in store" for this promotion when all the stores are supposedly closed on Sunday 20th?

  •  

    Always out of stock for WD SSD in auburn while in stock on website for my recent visits. And usually out of stock do my desire products and have to pay more $$ for other one if you don’t want to go to other store. This happens one can be understood, but always happen is too bad. And no one answers the phone, I will never shop with them again.

    •  

      I think it's a gimmick. They never answer the phone so you can't ask them if it's in stock. So you go all the way down to find out all the specials are "sold out" and since you are there, you end up buying something else.

      •  

        I had the same experience like yours. Hardly trust their "In-store only Promotion" because popular items usually sold out in first 30 mins. Can't be bother to drive all the way to try my luck.

    •  

      I nerver have that problem. They have 20+ store national wide, 1 store has stock then the website shows instock. But if you spend 5 more seconds to click on stock availability (near item description button) , you will see the correct stock level at selected stores. In my experience, low stock means 1 or 2 at store and sometime they cannot find the item.

      •  

        About 20 minutes after I bought the last m.2 drive at pascoe vale, the website still said in stock at pascoe vale.
