Please make sure you buy Samsung B-die single rank memory and not Hynix dual rank , Hynix memory it's very problematic due to been dual sided dual rank memory. Enjoy your new rig and post , share your results and findings here . I hope you get a good 1700x , let us know.

Plus ASUS originally listed version 0502 as being the first version to support Ryzen but currently states 0404 is the first version for support.
mine came with the 0504

Regarding cooling, I have a question or two to those who're already running their systems.

I've been using a Prolimatech Megahalems/SuperMega for the last couple of years, which has always served me well. The problem is that they've always been kind of "Intel"-heavy, and there still isn't a proper retention system available for AM4.
Now, I do have all the parts for a custom watercooling loop lying around here.
But: I'm hesistant to use them.
Why? Because I never liked the noise of the pump. No matter how you turn it, the pump makes watercooling noisier than air at idle conditions.
Do these CPUs really benefit from the additional cooling? I haven't seen that in years, to be honest. On the other hand, all my AMD CPUs were at least watercooled...

Any example, like temperatures, voltage and speed benefits, or even fan rpm benefits would be great.

PS: I've done enough AIO comparisons to regular heatsinks that I'd never go near any of those. With the same amount of air, they aren't any better than a good heatsink and their pump noise was always much worse than a "real" pump from a custom loop.
