Want some more info about the memory issues though.
    To put it simply, AMD gurantees nothing over ddr4-2666 speeds. Depending on DIMMs and density, you could be running as lows as 2133. Any speed above that is not guaranteed, and backed only by the mobo maker.

    Furthermore XMP profiles for Intel don't seem to work, so people are having to set timings maually.

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    I am intending to go for:

    1800x
    x370 Taichi
    GPU not decided yet, 580, Fury (like the PCWorld watercooled Ryzen review), 1080, but now I am reading about the new Vega...
    2 x 8Gb RAM,
    SSD of some description
    watercooling, if possible, "off the shelf", the PCWorld review used 240 Predator that apparently is not available to buy.
    Ultra Wide monitor 3440 x 1440

    But I have yet to buy any of it, and I will be doing a lot of reading and asking questions as I build. I am also quite concerned about the amount of power this thing will need, upwards of 300W . oh dear.

    I have just updated the original system and it cured many of the issues the system had. I won't hesitate if you want to build amd you should.

    I am planning a 6 core amd build next month

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    Looking for some moneys on these couple months, but here my planning build.
    CPU: would be r5 1500.
    motherboard : undecided due to no good selection.
    memory : corsair vengeance lpx 16gb
    storage : OCZ TRION 150 480GB
    case : Bitfenix prodigy m

    I could say the rest of them since need to think of the budget, but it should be around 1100 i i guess

    I used the GIGABYTE GA-AB350-GAMING 3 in a 1600X build. It's a good board and not too expensive.

    The 1600X build was for my adult son Buu. It's been up and running for a while now but I need to put the finishing touches on it and take some pics.

    If things go according to plan I'll be doing a 1500x build for my adult daughter this week. That's going into the mATX Fractal ARC MINI R2 case with a ASRock AB350M Pro4 motherboard.

    I need to put together PCPartpicker lists for the 1600x and 1500x builds.

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    Have checked Asus Prime B350 Plus and looks really good. I have seen that the new architecture is still evolving and i guess i would stick with Ryzen Parts to prevent less problems.

    I would stick with G.Skill Flare X series rather than using Corsair Vengeance.

    Seems to make sense, and this to me is valuable information. To me, it makes sense because as many of us know, AMD is not the same as Intel. There is an ever increasing gap in the way their chips use system memory. It has been this way ever since the company began designing their own cpu and collaborating to engineer the motherboards for them. I'm not sure of the best way to put it, but I have always said that AMD tends to use system memory more aggressively, and this attempt to use it as process efficiently as possible manifests itself through design and manufacturing deficiencies of system memory. What Im saying is, we'll have to wait for the improvements from both sides of the fence, ram module manufacturers, and AMD to start seeing tweak wiggle room. It's more an indication of the fundamentally radical new design than it is a company that sucks at CPU manufacturing. We've seen this quite a few times I think.

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    Regarding memory timings and Ryzen, a lot has changed over the past several months in terms of BIOS maturity. Since Gigabyte's June BIOS release I've been able to run Geil EVO X 3200 @ 3200 Mhz & Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 @ 2933 Mhz (there is no multiplier for 3000) on both the Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming 3 and GA-AX370-Gaming 5 boards without problems.

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    I don't plan on building a pc until memory and video card prices stop being insanely high. If they dont, then I wont. I'll find old parts and put them together if the one I have dies. It's not AMD's fault, but that's where I stand for the foreseeable future. But hey always enjoy hearing people's experiences...

    I went to Micro-Center on Monday and bought a new corsair case with glass sides, nice evga power supply, 960 evo M.2, ddr4.

    Can't wait till next week to get the board and chip. I'm thinking the 1700x. Anyone building and what is the plan? Will AMD live up to the hype? I think So!
    been a while since I have been here Undersea , my Z270 rig has got a flakey board so I am considering doing a amd setup . Would like Your opinion on these parts

    and

    I hear that MSI has upped their game what do you think ?

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    I'm starting to think about a new build at some point, but just not sure which way I will go, be it Intel or AMD. Have a SATA M.2 SSD on a PCI Express SATA M.2 card that I boot from, but kinda thinking about an upgrade to a board with M.2 slot for my boot drive.

    The motherboard looks good, and even has two M.2 slots on it for M.2 SSD's.

    Don't post much anymore here, have too many things going on with life.

    well hello !
    For Me I found that my board troubles on my Z270 began with a bios update that was supposed to fix the specture security flaw ( or however its spelled ) I just could not get the board to run right until I downgraded the to a older , non patched bios and troubles went bye bye That kinda soured Me to intel . So AMD here I come . Shame as the 7600K is no slouch
    I see hardly anyone posting here , shame …

    Re: Ryzen - What is your planned build?

    On the flip side, my 5 year old Core i7 4770 still runs everything out there just fine, which on that side of things I'm thinking about upgrading to 32GB's of DDR3 1600 ram, replacing all platter HD's with SSD's, and getting a 34inch WQHD monitor. That's what make it tough to do an upgrade, do I stick with my system which is running things great to this day, or do an upgrade. My built my current system to last quite awhile.

    Yes you will notice a way better system upgrading those hard drives , what I like on these newer systems is the M.2 drives , wow they rock curenlty running a Samsung 960 250mb MVME drive and geez this thing is fast , nice not to have any SATA cables exceptmy optical drive .
    I pushed the button on a AMD 2600X this morning got a killer deal at 185 shipped ! and wouldn't you know it . now my intel system is stable once I downgraded the bios to a non patched Spectre bios and from what I am reading even the newest intel cpu's still have that security flaw
    https://techreport.com/news/33874/in...-gen-core-cpus

    anyway with or with out the security issue it will be nice NOT to have integrated graphics on my cpu that I will never use .
    I am getting my motherboard from new egg nice to have one about a mile away
