AMD Ryzen/Threadripper support?

Is it the boxed cooler which has the nice red LED circle?


#3

The boxed cooler has a multi-colour LED. It adopts to the settings the motherboard has. I can even create a lightshow if I like. However, I’m not so fancy :wink:


#4

Very nice - is there no space behind the motherboard tray though? ^^


#5

If you call that a laptop…

It’s this a desktop tour for you? :wink:


#6

I think, it was inxi who did it. :slight_smile:


#7

Ooh yes… didn’t noticed it :wink:


#8

Drool…
hardware porn!


#9

I suppose you are going to overclock it?

With the boxed cooler, 3.6-3.8GHz are possible at 50°C

Edit: Your profile is outdated :wink:

Doing some fancy compiling now …

Yes Ryzen is such a good platform for Linux. I also have one of them and I like it a lot.
One thing that bugs me though - RAM is at 2133 at the moment (Asus x370 pro board with Corsair 3000 CL15 2*16GB)


#12

And done …

==> Finished building [linux318]
 --> Time make_pkg: 12.43 minutes

The good thing was: I simply exchanged the Motherboard with CPU and RAM and started up again. Manjaro continued where I left it off. Simply fantastic. And I love the new development speed.


#13

How long did it take with the previous CPU (and which one was it) to have some comparison of orders of magnitude?


#14

Fabulous compile time. I think it is actually faster than on my system. Well I compiled 4.10 maybe this makes the difference.

Have a lot of fun with this system @philm!

#15

Try newer BIOS versions :wink: the promised 2666MHz should already be possible on all boards.
The boards that promise up to 3200MHz will have to continue their work, but it will also be there soon. And the CPU will definitley gain speed with higher RAM speed due to the CCX link speed being the same like the RAM speed: http://www.eteknix.com/amd-ryzen-ccx-interconnect-infinity-fabric-tied-to-memory-speeds/


#16

downgrade kernel is not allowed for Ryzen
only 4.10 or more
missing a M2 SSD
:wink:

with 1800X

report cache is wrong


#17

I’ve to see. The system is a little new to me.

Maybe to a later state. I didn’t want to spend to much donations for it now.

One kernel to compile took me around 45 minutes on my old Quad core AMD Phenom 9650 (-MCP-).


#18

That’s indeed a huge improvement!


#19

Seems optimized kernels getting compiled even faster :wink:

Spend the donations, dammit!
That’s why we donated!
