Thanks for this thread chispy, it's good to see you're back in OC action. Going to visit this thread on daily basis, few times per day at least to suck up all needed knowlege before I pull the trigger and go with Ryzen. Good job dude!

More than 10 years with Intel here on my side, since C2D E6400 era, mostly because of OC & IPC performance. Considering the fact that I don't game for about 2.5 years my curent OCed rigs are still doing just fine (920 C0 @ 4.2 HT; 2600K @ 4.6 HT; X5670 @ 4.5 HT & X5675 @ 4.65 HT winter / @ 4.6 HT summer) for my personal needs some will say that I don't have the real reason for upgrade. But when I look back how AMD is struggling hard in past decade to offer something close to Intel in high-end segment and after all these years Ryzen could finally match Intel's i7 generation this upgrade bug of mine is starting to itchy my brain so hard, I almost had no sleep last night because of it lol, it's sunday ffs and I'm fully awake since 6am!

Last time when I was on AMD because of OC it was in gloriuos era of unlocked K7 Barton CPUs and Abit NF7 series Socket A mobos, geez like it was eons ago. Now (really hope so) AMD is going strong again with Ryzen and again I'm tempted to go with red team again, but sadly atm on my side there is a catch

This winter I've decited to put some cash on the side to finally send my trusty motorcycle for repair, 2 days ago finally I've pushed it 1.5Km to local repair shop, it was a full suny day, 1pm and sick as a street dog I was sweaty to my bones: fewer, hot sunny day and more than 150Kg bike pushing it 1.5Km mostly uphill, at the end of the "trip" I was red hot, more than Angry Crab I can smell spring in the air, my boys and daughter are geting older, hell me and my lady aren't geting younger and we almost forgot how much fun we've had on that bike. Really don't know how much repair is going to cost me but guess it's gonna be between (hope so) 500-600 range up to (really afraid of) 800, or maybe (wife is gonna kill me) 1200 range. Few days from now repair shop will call me about estimated repair costs, really don't know what to expect but I have a strong feeling that next few months I'm gonna spend in front of kitchen sink acting like a fully automated dish washing machine thanks to my belowed wife, nope: thanks to myself

Unlike AMD's failed attempt with Bulldozer (thank God I've gone with 2600K backthen, something from above told me not to buy FX-8xxx series) now I have a strong feeling AMD is on the right track and Rizen is going to be a bullseye both for mainstream and for entusuast OCers. Although I don't expect IPC to be on Kaby's level, somewhere near Kaby minus 5 to 10% is reasonable to expect clock-per-clock. But with, reasonable to expect, OC somewhere between 4.3 and 4.5GHz these 8C/16T and 6T/12T Rysens are going to fly. Hope Ryzens aren't going to dissapoint me both on OC and IPC field, hell even on BCLK OC field I'm expecting something, I WANT TO BE ABLE TO FIDDLE WITH BCLK OC AGAIN, last time when it BCLK OC was fun it was on X58/1366!

Sadly be no Ryzen upgrade for me at least for few more months, family summer vacation costs also are going to suck up some more money on my side so probably September 2017 at best is my target date to open my wallet and finally support AMD again on CPU field. Till then I'm gonna visit this thread every day, drool over your Ryzen setups and wait autmn to come so that I could join you guys. Prices are going to drop till then, BIOSes are going to mature, more mobos for sure... Sadly, but here were I am local importers are ripping our skin with IT prices in past decade or so, prices are 10-30% higher than most EU countries, on the top of that monthly salaries are few times lower than the rest of EU Boy, I'm living in totaly IT unfriendly country

Till then enjoy you new Ryzen rigs gurus, I hope they're going to fulfill all your expectations, cheers!

P.S.
Good to know about Asus ROG Chrosshair IV HERO mounting holes compatibillity with AM3 cooler base, wish more mobo manufacturers were doing the same, even more entusiast users with AM3/AM3+ setups would be willing to jump into Ryzen bandwagon reusing their curent CPU cooling solutions.

I know it's been said earlier that Ryzen CPUs i.e. complete Ryzen platform will be supported both on W7 and W10, but it's kinda weird at least that W8.1 is excluded on this list for some reason. Maybe because of M$ pulled of W8.1 licences from the market earlier, don't know really, just guessing, but here in my country for example retail W8.1 licences still can be bought almost everywhere and guess it's the same in the rest of the world. Atm most of my home rigs are on Win8.1, at office its W7 SP1, but I would like to reuse those W8.1 retail licences on my home rigs one day when I switch curent CPUs and mobos for Ryzen ones and use them for some time before one day finaly jump into W10 bandwagon I guess, don't see a single reason to do that atm. But when I see manufacturers like Gigabyte, Biostar and MSI doesn't even list chipset drivers for Win8.1 (but W7 and W10 chipset drivers are there for downoad) I'm a bit worried about this. But ASRock is listing drivers for Win8.1 and nothing is missing there, drivers for W7, W8.1 and W10 are there, why other manufacturers are acting like W8.1 doesn't exist!? For Asus there's nothing except BIOS in download section for Hero, guess they're going to publish W8.1 drivers same day both for W7, 8.1 and 10.

I have noticed that most of the products support webpages are not compleate 100% , a lot of stuff it's missing but i expect this to be updated before the NDA is lifted in ~48 hours time, I hope you get your OS W8.1 supported my friend.

Placed order with Amazon before noon on Feb. 22nd. No dice. They apologized for not having enough stock of both the 1700X and the Prime X370-Pro. Waiting game now. Time to see if the review allows the order to stand.

Same here i place two orders at two different online retailers with same hardware ( Asus CH 6 hero and R7 x1800 ). One at newegg.com and i'm mad as hell as they told me i have to wait until March 9 , 2017 or later because they have not received their Asus boards yet and also they sold too many R7 x1800 and it is in backorder :/ , same story with Amazon they apologize to me and told me they could not give me an accurate day of shipping because they don't have any stock available eventhought i'm 100% sure i was one of the first one on the net to make the pre-order instantly when they went live and ready to take pre-order

As of right now i do not know when i will be getting my mobo and cpu , it's all in the air and in limbo ...

** I have just ordered from newegg a BIOSTAR X370GT5 AM4 AMD X370 and a R7 x1700 with next day shipping , so in a couple of days most likely i will be doing a small write up on how things work with Ryzen overclocking and memory related write up , until my Asus CH 6 hero and R7 x1800 gets here **


*** Updated most of the Motherboard Bios , link to hwbot to Elmor's ROG Crosshair VI series ( Overclocking tread ) ( Jon aka Elmor = Asus Overclocking legend and engineer at Asus HQ )

Do not want to jinx order. Kept hammering for an answer as to why the order did not ship. The resulting deal offered was to good to pass up. So it really did not matter how the review would turn out. When the order ships and is delivered, will divulge more.

All I have to stare at is a lonely cooler. Such trials and tribulations. Life is rough.

My RX 1700X shipped from Newegg yesterday and is due to arrive at my door tomorrow. I got a notification late today that my Biostar x370GT7 has shipped as well, but with the weekend coming up, it isn't likely to arrive until next Tuesday (I'm hoping for Monday as a realistic date).

ASROCK
(from wat i hear, asrock sometimes uses higher# of cheaper phases. cant verify, but seems accurate. be warned.)
power phases:
x370 = 14-16
The X370 Fatal!ty Professional Gaming has 16 phases, the Fatal!ty Professional Gaming K4 has 12. Looks like the Gaming K4 is targetting those that want value as well as optimised bios without all the fancy stuff.

There is probably one thing that the Gaming K4 is missing, and that is the Clear CMOS button on the back panel, although I must admit this is a little redundant with another feature that Asrock boards have had for a long time, including my current Asrock Z77 Extreme6. That feature is boot failure guard. Basically if you computer fails to boot 3 times as standard (configurable on mine), then the default CMOS settings are loaded. This is great and allows get back into the bios without having to press the CLR CMOS button at the back, something that the Extreme6 also has. The alternative otherwise would be to unplug the power, open the case, apply the CLR CMOS jumper, etc, and go from there.

However, I have noticed that no Asrock AM4 boards mention boot failure guard at all in the literature or the online manuals. Is it not available on these boards, or is it just an automatic feature now? Even the Z270 boards mentions it and allows you to enable or disable it in the bios. The CLR CMOS switches are only available on the Fatal!ty Professional and Taichi, none of the other boards have it.

Great idea with this thread.

On my "waiting list" (due to inavailablity at the store where i want to buy it):

R7 1700

Ordered & arriving March 6th:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M/

Considering RAM, i got some 8G lying around but I think I'll get the G.SKILL Flare X Kit.

Depending on when the 1700 arrives I'll post some Linux server benchmarks here. Basically some standard Gentoo compile times, maybe a RAID rebuild, we'll see. Just some stuff that wasn't covered in the major tests yet.
Actually...maybe I'll test games on NT first

I will be interested in seeing your views, especially someone with a 6700k. Personally still hanging on the fence, unsure of my upgrade path. Will give it another 2-3 months for the dust to settle and hopefully some clarity.

Hey guys, I bought an 1800x and Asus prime-x370-pro yesterday on launch day from Microcenter, and the prime x370 pro isn't compatible with the RAM I had (2x16GB DDR4-3200MHz 1.35v Gskill), so I had to go back today and grab a temporary 1x8GB stick just to get it to POST.

What's everyone running in terms of RAM?

You can either consider waiting for the "Week 1" BIOS update or read through this:

There is probably one thing that the Gaming K4 is missing, and that is the Clear CMOS button on the back panel, although I must admit this is a little redundant with another feature that Asrock boards have had for a long time, including my current Asrock Z77 Extreme6. That feature is boot failure guard. Basically if you computer fails to boot 3 times as standard (configurable on mine), then the default CMOS settings are loaded. This is great and allows get back into the bios without having to press the CLR CMOS button at the back, something that the Extreme6 also has. The alternative otherwise would be to unplug the power, open the case, apply the CLR CMOS jumper, etc, and go from there.

However, I have noticed that no Asrock AM4 boards mention boot failure guard at all in the literature or the online manuals. Is it not available on these boards, or is it just an automatic feature now? Even the Z270 boards mentions it and allows you to enable or disable it in the bios. The CLR CMOS switches are only available on the Fatal!ty Professional and Taichi, none of the other boards have it.
Good information , thanks for clarifying the vrm phases on those mobos. This is work in progress we really need more information. I guess once people start receiving their Ryzen platform and share their findings on this unified tread we will find out by ourselves much , much more.

R7 1700

Ordered & arriving March 6th:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M/

Considering RAM, i got some 8G lying around but I think I'll get the G.SKILL Flare X Kit.

Depending on when the 1700 arrives I'll post some Linux server benchmarks here. Basically some standard Gentoo compile times, maybe a RAID rebuild, we'll see. Just some stuff that wasn't covered in the major tests yet.
Actually...maybe I'll test games on NT first
Nice , thank you for the kind words. Do not forget to share your findings here on this unified tread.

What's everyone running in terms of RAM?
Ram is still a hit or miss , i will let you know on monday when my Ryzen gets here. I have 2x8Gb of G.Skill DDR4-3200Mhz cas 15-15-15-35 @ 1.35v ( Samsung B-die ic ) and Team Vulkan 2x8Gb DDR4-2400Mhz cas 14-16-16-31 at 1.2v ( SK-Hynix ic ) ready for it.

*** Updated Cooling Section Today March 3 , 2017 ***


Monday morning finally my first Ryzen will be here. I will be receiving the cheapest x370 motherboard available BIOSTAR X370GT5 and a x1700 , later on next week ( before Friday ) i will be receiving my Asus Crosshair VI Hero X370. I will update and share my findings starting monday morning.

Ryzen soon ...

Has a week 1 bios update been confirmed?

It's really weird, once I got home from work today without changing anything since it was functional, the 8GB stick I bought for compatibility purposes stopped posting and one of the 16GB sticks I had from before started working, although I couldn't get the other 16GB stick to post even by itself so I'm not sure if it's DOA or if it might just be because of the BIOs being buggy as hell, I'm leaning towards the latter since I doubt the 8GB stick just happened to die on me too.

Also my 1800x isn't boosting to 4GHz by stock, seems to cap out at 3850Mhz, and if I raise it to 4GHz manually it's not stable. That could either be related to the memory as well, or possibly insufficient cooling, I'm just using a coolermaster 212 evo until I get my compatibility bracket for my h110.

I wonder why this should matter when these chips have extremely limited headroom to begin with.

So 300MHz & 3200MHz NP on ZEN (even on 4x4 configurations)

Also look here 4.2GHz with 3200MHz Mem on Hero VI ->

ASRock boards now available here too!

Ouch, X370 Taichi is 290 EUR. The Killer SLI and Gaming K4 are 180-190 EUR, similar to Asus Prime X370.

Featurewise they seem very similar, Taichi has more power phases (16) and 60A chokes vs. 12 phases and 45A chokes on Killer SLI and Gaming K4.

Wonder what makes the 100 EUR difference. Does Taichi use all around better components?

All of these boards (Taichi, Killer SLI, Gaming K4) use 12K Nichicon black caps though.

Tbh that's what I was thinking, given near identical specs. Gaming K4, Killer SLI or Asus Prime then.

There, motherboard choices narrowed down already
Just need to wait for 6c R5 now.

Just remember software is a big deal too, it seems like the Hero has more RAM compatibility than the Prime and it's being supported with beta bioses, whereas as of the time of this reply there's nothing for Prime (maybe this will change in the future).

Also the Hero has USB flashback which lets you flash bioses even without a CPU or RAM installed, so if you run into problems you can more easily fix it that way. (The Prime doesn't support this)

Yeah good points, but like said I'll wait for R5 cpus before upgrading so by that time most mobos should have updated bioses and ram compatibility etc.

Ofc I will decide which is best at the moment but Asus and ASRock are the only brands I'm considering and those models fit my price bracket.

Should have good price vs. quality ratio.
