UPDATE:

The Asus Tuf Gaming X570-Plus Wifi, which I currently run, still doesn't have PPC Adjustment/Pstate0 settings. It has all the other settings to use with AMD's recommended high performance plan and 1usmus's plan. Without this, their OC scheme is invalidated or rather the Infinity Fabric will be operating at whatever Asus set it to. Pstate = 0 sets it to its highest. The Asus Crosshair has this feature, but not the cheap TUF series, but I don't know about the new TUF board.

IMHO, The Gigabyte Aorus X570 Master is the absolute best board/value available, though not cheap but I've owned it and it has the OC features. The new X570 Tomahawk looks good but I don't know if it supports the above OC features above. It is not listed in it's manual.

In part 1 we built a beautiful, clean streaming machine with an AMD Ryzen 3700X CPU, Asus TUF X570 Gaming-Plus (WiFi) motherboard & Asus TUF 1660 Super OC 6GB GPU using its new Turing die and newer NVENC encoder. In this video we’ll also discuss which nVidia GPU’s have the Turing nVENC Encoder. After the updates to the Machine, we are going to cover Streamlabs OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) and a bunch of overlays are linked directly below. At the very end will be a brief discussion why you should consider a B550 Motherboard instead and my B550 picks and also on July 7, 2020, AMD will release a couple of slightly upgraded processors with little speed increases.

Before I get my office setup and all these parts are installed, I thought I'd show you what I chose for Vlogging and Streaming and general Youtube Tech videos. 23 Items unboxed in this video. VLOG STATION HOUSTON will be up soon!

 

NZXT Nemesis Elite. I just couldn't put this New AMD 3700X CPU into this old case. It was running perfectly with valid licenses, was too dirty and was very nostalgic. I've had the case since 2004 or 2005. In the video I look at three budge cases so I don't have to tear apart this working computer. Look further below. I list out the parts I'm going to use in this streaming PC after thinking about it some.

 DISCLAIMER. No one but myself paid for any of these products; I paid for everything in this video with my own own USD$ but the below links are mostly affiliate links.

Ulanzi FT-96 Mini LED Video Light vs. VL100

SJCAM SJ4000 AIR 4K/30FPS HD Action Camera. It's pretty good for $50. It can be found for cheaper than that. I'll use it for those times when it doesn't make sense to break out the bigger Panasonic Lumix G85 camera. the SJ4000 Air doesn't have image stabilization, but you can see I threw in my truck's dash and went to the gas station. It did pretty good. I'm happy with it for the prices.


Ulanzi VL100 5500K LED Pocket Camera Video Light. I bought this light for backlighting . It's small, bright and effective. I really like it and recommend it. I will have another review of the Ulanzi FT-96 up very shortly.
