    Right now it would be folly to grab a 7700k over a 1600x. Seriously about $125 less and it's on par with a 6800k.

    1600/1600x is THE CPU to get at the moment.

    My buddy just got a 1600, running it stock with 16GB 2400, and it wipes the floor vs his old cpu. i7 3820 @ 4.5.

    Its even beating my 3930k @ 4.1 quite handily while the 1600 is stock.

    Wish I had the scratch to build a 1600x rig.

    Only thing I do not like about (Ryzen) is its not able to clock any higher then 4.1Ghz - If they made that puppy hit close to 5ghz right now it would of been a Major win for Amd and all of us.

    True, but it doesn't. And not every Intel chip will hit it either.

    I, personally, had quite some issues overclocking a 4770k and a 6800k. In conparison, Ryzen was as easy to clock as my old 2600k and previous chips.
    It'll be faster here and a little slower there. That's fine for me.

    Higher clocks don't always mean better performance....

    They mean in prehistoric single/dual core app/games for example fallout 4 it has ancient engine crappy multithread engine and uses 2/4HT cores even they say it uses more so when you play it with 7700K@4.5-5GHz it will get 10-35% more fps and will achieve more or less playable frame rates 55-75Fps even in most crappy situations so at the moment it's more suited for recent or 99% of today games and when one day games start to use DX12+Vulcan with 4-32 cores cpu frequency will not be issue anymore but until that day ie 2020-2025 stick with ****ty 5GHz intel quads..

    Well, after trying to run VMWare Player on my 6600K, I had to make the decision between i7 7700K and Ryzen. My new Ryzen 1600 will be here tomorrow and hopefully the install kit for my waterblock will show up tomorrow as well. Would be nice to be able to assemble everything tomorrow evening.

    Ryzen is steadily improving, whereas i7 7700K is performing the best it's going to. There is still a lot of room for Ryzen to get better as well.
