    Speaking of Ryzen 3000 series. There is new RAM coming out from G.Skill (Trident Z Neo) that has those cheesy LEDs on by default, but it has quite good timing optimized for Ryzen 3000s. Is there any way to control those LEDs from Linux? It would be annoying to have a glowing RAM without any way to disable that, and G.Skill aren't sure if they'll release such RAM using simple heatsinks without all those LEDs.

      Those disgusting LEDs on memory cannot even be controlled on Windows, which is used by virtually all of those so-called 'hardware enthusiasts'. Don't even hope for a control mechanism on Linux to appear until a Windows version does.

        Those LEDs consume *a a lot of power* and almost blind you..

        1) The Worst Solution..
        Put a black tape on them..
        2) The best Solution..
        cut them of...physically !!

          With Zen 2 AMD has improved the memory controller compatibility tremendously. People on reddit are routinely hitting the sweet spot of 3600/3733 with low latency timings. Even a cheap A320 motherboard worked with 3733CL18.

            Considering how good (and anticipated) this hardware is, it's no wonder there will be new versions of "stable" distros to get it up and running. I hope people know they should mock every distro that doesn't attempt to get Zen2 running ASAP.

              Being a Mageia user and anticipating building my wife's next computer around a 3700x, I'm impressed that they re-rolled their ISOs. I was ready to set up her new rig, do the install with my Raven Ridge 2400, then patch systemd and install the 3700x.

              Now it'll be really easy to get every thing going from the ground up. Now if Newegg could get some of the damn processors in stock from someone other than the scalpers I'd be in business.

              In any case, way to go Mageia.
