I just ordered a AMD RYZEN 7 1700 3.0 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1700BBAEBOX Desktop Processor-Newegg.com
and a ASRock X370 Killer SLI/ac AM4 AMD X370 Motherboards - AMD - Newegg.com
any ram psu case suggestions?
ordering this for my ryzen build although probably overkill but nice price and good warranty EVGA SuperNOVA 850 P2 220-P2-0850-X1 80+ PLATINUM 850W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Po…
I ordered this same very power supply off Jet.com. Glad to see I'm not the only one.
Any reason for selecting the 1700?
i kinda see it as the sweet spot. we have seen that it at least overclocks to 4ghz which brings it up to 1800x levels and at 65w tdp/325$
its a sweet deal. I dont really care if its missing the auto overclock.
Naturally, you don't need the XFR enabled versions unless you are determined to add in liquid cooling for that 'moderate' (we don't know how big XFR brings in alone) in speed.
Otherwise throwing liquid cooling on a 1700 and manually overclocking it has similar effects at a cheaper price.
All Ryzen CPUs has SMT enabled, down to the dual core that will be released by the end of the year.
This means the more threads total, the better the average performance you should expect.
This means the quad core with 8 total threads, would be sufficiently decent to the low end i7 cpus.
I pre-ordered yesterday:
Your Order Detail
I just secured my 1800x preorder. I was going to wait til after the NDA and see benchmarks and reviews, but after seeing demo's, tech specs, etc, I wanted to secure my spot to get one. Can't wait!
Awesome stuff everyone can't wait to see the builds.
as an update I decided to change my pre order to the 1700x and asus x370 pro
I'm waiting for release so I can see what memory matches up best with Ryzen, and what motherboards have the best features-performance for the price. Pre-ordering is just too risky for me to allocate that much money to something I know so little about. (that we all know so little about)
