I'm crossing my fingers 4000 series is AM4. If not, I'll likely upgrade to a ~3900 in a few years when they're cheap.
I think it will be, as it was promised until 2020, and their server boards are guaranteed to stay on their socket as well.

DDR5 is really the only reason to get a new socket.

same hardware, different warranty and firmware. But i would say the Inland one because OP product does not come with heatsink, and Gen 4 NVMe ssd get really hot compare to Gen3.
The Crosshair VIII has heatsinks already for both M.2 slots so honestly Heatsink doesn't matter to me besides being easily removable from the stock one lol

I hope so. 2020 is only 2 months away though!

I'm on a b350 with a 3700x. Gen 3 obviously.
How much of a bottleneck will there be?
I think that I need a new board anyways, as I have a 512gb relatively fast M2, and four storage drives on the sata, and I can only do one data transfer at once, without halving the speed. This is the first board that I've ever had that does this.
Just sequentials. Primary M.2 socket runs at x4 PCIe 3.0. Technically, those sockets can do x4 PCIe 4.0 (with a Zen 2 chip) but AMD has disallowed this. Only the primary M.2 socket uses CPU lanes, though, the rest are over the chipset and are slower (PCIe 2.0 on the B350). If you're having speed issues you're probably using the wrong socket as chipset ones are shared with SATA and all over motherboard devices, bottlenecked by x4 PCIe 3.0 (upstream from chipset).

Why would you do that motherboard CPU pairing?
He's probably intending to upgrade to the Zen 2 refresh ("Zen 3") coming in a year.

Had the discussion already my friend.

It's Zen 3 by the way. No Zen 2+ this time around. It might not be the jump that zen/zen+ to zen 2 was though.

I think Zen 4 will be my next upgrade, coming from zen 2. Intel, with all their investors, will be back in the game next year. And in 2021, its another Sandy bridge moment.
If AMD can stay relatively close to Intel's speed and power at that time, I'm staying loyal for the underdog, if they can offer a good value.

I hope tweakers don't try and overclock their SSD drives and end up with primary SSD data corruption, 💩

Stop and actually look at benchmarks on NVMe SSDs for specific tasks before spending extra money for a "faster" one.

Even the lower end NVMe SSDs start to hit the point having only marginally notable at best improvements for things like gaming, over higher end SATA SSDs, with often no noticeable difference between different NVMe drives of differing speeds.

There are tasks where this does make a difference. Gaming, at least, is generally not one of them. For gaming, this is not going to be a step up in performance that makes a reasonable real world difference from even just an Adata SX8200 or HP EX920, or any of the other comparable drives, so consider saving your money if that's what you're shopping for.

Drives like this one start to outshine other NVMe drives for sustained writes, which aren't an issue in gaming. Note that a basically identical PCIE4 Phison PS5016-ES16 based drive actually managed to perform worse [tweaktown.com] in at least one game load screen test than an HP EX950. This is probably an anomaly or down to firmware tuning that it did worse, but it's also unlikely it would have done more than minisculely better all things considered, so the point stands: don't spend a ton of extra money on the fastest possible throughput NVMe thinking it's going to get you anywhere special for games.

Now, if you're running a server or doing video editing/etc, those are completely different stories. But again, take the time to look through reviews that reveal real world performance differences for specific tasks, because NVMe drives are nearly all* in the territory where how they perform can vary greatly based on what you're using them for, and certain uses just won't result in even a noticeable difference, much less a notable one.

*the main exceptions being the drives that have no cache at all.
The new consoles may change the way games are built giving an edge more and more to faster ssd drives. 95% of games are setup in such a way to make seek times on a mechanical drive efficient. This should change in the next few years. It may be minor but I am eager to see how games take advantage with the removed storage bottleneck.

Make sure you heatsink these, I burned out an sx8200 pro doing exactly that.

Modern gaming spec PCs can load most games entirely into RAM. Why would they want to read/write anything from the disk when RAM is still lightyears faster? Sure, launching the game will be faster, but disk operations are still a bottleneck if used during the actual game.

is Sabrent reliable Drive ? Was planning to get Samsung Evo 960 or Crucial.
I would pay a bit more for a reliable brand. Especially if this is going to be your main drive. How much Sabrent is constantly pushed on Slickdeals has made me very skeptical of a purchase of any of their products.

Thumbs up for supporting m2 chips, eh... about Sabrent.


I'd been using a GigaByte P-35 mobo with an Intel Q-6600 quad CPU home build since 2008ish. Win 7 pro x64 upgraded to Win 10 about 2-3 years ago during their free upgrade period. Decided it was time for an upgrade.

At Fry's: MSI Z390 MPG Plus mobo about $119, Intel I-5 6 core CPU about $180, 2x8GB Patriot Viper DDR4 about $85, 2x Samsung 970 Plus m2 250GB sticks in RAID0 for the new c:\ drive, about $140. Used old case and power supply, and video is on the mobo.


With a bit of fiddling using Acronis to clone old c:\drive Win 10 to the RAID0 from M2s in the new PC, it works. DL'd Win 10's new release 1903 from MS, overwrote/updated my old Win 10, and activated it with my old Win 7 key.


For about $525, this new PC is wicked fast. It boots from cold to Win 10's login GUI page in less than 10 seconds. Just a little slower than a TV set.


M2 chips are a wicked fast upgrade, and prices are falling fast!
