I think I'll probably do a 5950X, just to fully max out this platform as it's technically EOL now. Then it can live on as a "server" down the road.
Do you guys think a 3900X would be okay in an ASRock B450M though? It's only 3-phase, so I'm leaning towards that being a bad idea, but I have a 2700X in there today which is also 105W. Better idea is probably to get a middle range B550 board and replace the 6850k in the house instead?
Looks like ASUS dropped their X470 boards... so I'm doubtful on B450.hmmm...apparently the Asus Strix B450-I supports dual M.2 for storage...but jury is out on whether Asus will bring Ryzen 5000 support to all their 4xx chipset boards. and then there's the issue of stock...can you find one of these or not.
