I'm more concerned about MBs and their quality/performance/price. Even best CPU can be a nasty surprise on lousy chipset. I'll probably start with 6/12 Ryzen and see where it gets me to on a good MB. It will be couple of month until everything gets to be available locally so it will be enough time to evaluate everything. OC ability will also be a very important factor.
So, R5 Pro 1600 is my most likely suspect.

I am not going to post them here as I cannot attest to validity, but a crapload of new benchmarks just showed up online and the numbers are staggering. A few even show the 1500 6C/12T chips marching past Intels high end offerings in benches. If this stuff is legit and so is the pricing... both camp users are going to be jumping for joy. AMD camps get the chip they were promised, Intel camps get the prices they wanted... I cannot believe the single thread performance growth they are producing with these.

Most of those benchmarks are not real.

Scott, that's why I didn't want to link them. We both know how that crap is, and I for one am not going to spread falsehoods if its the case. However being said there are usually truthful ones out early too. Its a matter of figuring out which are which.

I have a few that are

1700X is a beast of a chip.

EDIT: You weren't talking about that one... man... I should read more.

FWIW, I have seen a couple real benchmarks....in person. I have also seen 8c/16t on LN2.
AMD enthusiasts will be happy with Ryzen.

Granted he hasn't been with them for over a year, but he was the one who laid the groundwork for what will inevitably be a much better competitor to Intel then what AMD has had before it.

I'll see the cost of processor first and might upgrade RAM later on. Wasn't thinking bout best memory yet. Funny but no 3000MH and up RAM on that list. 2666 at most, even Samsung.

There is 3000 mhz on that list. Most of them are 4gb x 4 kits though. and the 8gb ones are from manufacturers ive never heard of.

Zen+ in all likelyhood for me. Ivy at 4.5 is still going strong and until Zen can reach 4.3+ i'm not jumping at upgrading. But i'm assuming that will happen eventually so i'm pretty set on Zen or an iteration of Zen, plus i wanna move to 6 cores.

Just completed parts for my build.
R5 1600x
Asus PRIME X370 PRO
Kingston HyperX Savage HX4230C15SB2/8 3000MHz. Just couldn't find anything better here.
1600x doesn't come with a cooler and I still didn't get adapter kit for my CM Nepton 140XL so I installed (for now) OEM cooler from my FX 6350 and expect it to work because it's made for 125W TDP and 1600x is 95W processor.

The cooler should work.... but aren't the mounting holes different? I don't think the FX stock cooler will mount up... Or you've made a custom bracket?

Just finished upgrade and it WOOOORKS !!
Yes, stock FX cooler fits like a glove, it clamps down and clamp, brackets and hooks are at same place as since AM2.
Not doing much of OC right now, having troubles getting RAM over 2400MHz. Best XMP 2 setting allows for 2966MHz but it just locks up when trying to boot with it. Other than that it passes all tests and boosts to 4.1 readily. BIOS is V 0604, the newest one.

I finally got my system back up and running after my MB replacement. Asrock fatality b350 and 1700@3.7 and teamgroup team dark 3000@ 3200 14-14-14-31. Using a Noctua u12p that i lapped its around 35 idle and 60 stree testing with cpuz. Ive only tried playing wow with it so far but it sits around 45 degrees. No voltage adjustments yet, havent tried pushing it too hard.

It looks like after 3.7ghz on most of these chips it takes quite a voltage leap to get more. If you haven't touched voltage yet, then don't. Run with that 3.7ghz under 1.2v and be nice and happy and efficient.
