it makes zero sense to buy obsolete hardware that is end of life coming July 2020

only to waste more money buying a new board if he needs to buy a new CPU

the last thing you want to replace is the mobo since the OS key will be linked to the mobo

you are just being stupid here

yes i know but if there is a Ryzen 4000 series, AMD will drop support for the board

My B350 has no more BIOS support as well

AMD Ryzen esp the APU work best with dual channel Memory.

bad idea to use the dead A320 chipset as there is no longer support for the board from AMD.

so he wont be able to upgrade to the newer CPUs or Overclock the APU if he want to squeeze out more performance

Apple is on crack to charge a Mac Pro for the price of a AMD Treadripper 32 Core system which will wipe the floor off the Mac Pro.

i have to correct you there

the top slot sure will have the closest connection to the CPU

there is no performance difference between using the top slot or the middle slot esp when he only has one GPU. with that CPU he is using, he can go full SLi with 2 x16 lanes for the GPUs

as long he dont use the bottom slot which is an x8 wired x16 slot

I will throw in my 2 cents here

If you are not after gaming and solely use case is for Video editing.

Dont bother with the HEDT platform

heck the Ryzen 9 3950X will be plenty for you

2019 and 2020 is the rise of the AMD Ryzen CPUs.

Intel reign as the CPU king is long gone.

both the HEDT and the mainstream desktop platform

the shops where i get PC parts for my customer has to restock AMD stuffs almost weekly as they are flying off the shelves.

hold on a min here

the Z170 has support for the 7th Gen i Cores CPU

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z170A-KRAIT-GAMING-3X

Ver 2.7 BIOS onwards supports the next gen CPU which means it supports the 7th Gen i Core i7-7700/k

also Z170 is already on the DDR4 platform, so i see no reason to buy new RAM

I have upgraded my buddy's Acer desktop from the i5 6500 to the i7 7700 as well and the mobo was a B150.

this is a sick build

correct me if i am wrong so you used the Radeon 7 GPU with your Macbook as a eGPU for gaming right?

have you tried davinci resolve?

in all honesty

going the Treadripper route for your use case is kinda wasteful spending

if you are worried about not enough PCI-E lanes

I rather suggest you go for the X570 chipset

https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-ryzen-9-3950x-review,4.html

with the Ryzen 9 3950X and the X570 chipset board

you get a total of 40 PCI-E lanes, and even with 16 lanes used for the GPU, you still have 24 lanes for all the drives you can use.

Also PCI-E 4.0 is 2 times faster than 3.0 so even at half speed PCI-E 4.0 = speed of PCI-E 3.0

with the money saved from buying the expensive Treadripper platform, you can invest in the best RTX 2080Ti GPU

i think you might need to refer to the mobo manual

check to see if the NVME takes up the SATA ports

what NVME drive you got?

if its a Samsung NVME, the Samsung Magician software helps you clone the SATA SSD

other brands should have a software for cloning that you can download from their website

if i were you i will either clone the OS to the NVME drive

if not just do a clean new OS install

booting from NVME drives are blazing fast

tests have been done with SATA SSD vs NVME for game

the difference between them dont justify the extra cost of getting NVME.

the Crucial MX500 will do the job

if you can get the X470 board for cheap, yea by all means buy them

but i seeing little to no extra cost getting the X570 chipset

the tier list is still updating but you can already see which boards are good

that is false information

look at the Reddit post on VRM quality mobo

https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/9uc6bi/am4_b450x470_vrm_tier_list/

https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/c40x0a/x570_vrm_tier_list_speculated/

there is no reason buying more expensive boards when a cheaper board could do the same job and has good quality VRMs

OP look at the list before committing on the board to buy.

B450 chipset is a great platform on a budget.

If you have money to burn then by all means buy X570

you will need to find a case and a PSU

but knowing Dell mobos uses special power cables, you will need to get adapters to convert the 24 pin ATX power to the special plug.

Also you may need to mod the cabling for the front panels and power switch

6 core is fine if he just purely gaming but the next gen consoles are going 8 cores and 16 treads. it wont be long we see games needing 8 cores as well

basically almost future proofing instead of buying another CPU down the line next year
