Ryzen 3950x build - I can’t believe it

I don’t post much here . Lots of lurking.
Been a paying Cubase user for over 15 years.

I’ve always built my own systems , for nearly 2 decades.
All were dedicated DAW machines using near top of the line available at the time.
The last one was an Intel 8700K , first one an Athlon 1200. So yeah I’ve see a lot of performance jumps.

Still using an RME UFX USB2 Interface.
The most intense plugin I routinely use is
Waves Abbey Road Plates

I could get maybe 6-8 of these to run on my 8700K CB 10.5.

The build I finished yesterday is
Ryzen 3950x stock
Noctua NH-D15
Crucial Ballistix 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory
RAM overclocked to 3733 MHz
MSI MEG X570 UNIFY Motherboard

I just loaded up 60 tracks with an Abbey Road Plates Reverb on each one.
No dropouts … Zero.
I am shocked.
Way better than I expected, the biggest upgrade I’ve ever experienced in all the years of building my own DAW PCs.

Dead silent system as well , MB / Graphics fans don’t come on.
Case and CPU fans are 400 rpm and unless your heads in the case you can’t hear it above the ambient noise in a silent room.

I was able to max out the CPUs without getting dropouts. , never experienced that with any other system.
Well done AMD and well done Steinberg amazing time to be alive.
Just had to share.


Thanks for sharing. It’s always appreciated.

yep, my 3950x X570 machine has been running smooooooth as silk since I built it this year. Really great machine. VERY HAPPY :smiley:
