    Hello first post and a slight dilemma, I wanted to jump on the ryzen train and can’t seem to pick between the 1600x or the 1700 non x.

    The other reason for those two cpu choices is I’m currently waiting on a reply from Silverstone about my AM4 bracket replacement for my cooler hence why I’m stuck between the two “1700 has cooler 1600x no cooler”.

    My other issue is the ram and being based in Australia anything that close to 3200 is expensive do you really need that speed ram to get the most out of ryzen.

    The board I was leaning towards was the asrock x370 gaming k4 as it seems to offer the best bang for buck and there’s no x370 boards in the miro atx form factor “Not interested in the biostar one”.

    This will be a budget upgrade and I deal a lot with Pc Case Gear here in Oz so If you want to hunt around on their site and help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
