Test Setup

We test all AMD CPUs with MSI's X470 Gaming M7 AC along with 16GB (2 x 8GB) of Corsair 3,000MHz DDR4 Vengeance memory. At launch, this was the highest stable frequency we could obtain although many boards now support faster frequencies. We're also using a Cooler Master ML120L RGB cooler and Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Edition.
