    New build advice

    I have been looking to do a new build and planning to use a lot of asus rog components. I haven't decided which cpu I am going to use yet. I have always built with AMD chips. I have had my eye on crosshair hero wi fi board for a Ryzen build . What is the equal intel board and cpu to use with a build ? I do want to try to do some very mild over clocking, I am a complete noobie with over clocking, I know there is a lot of info here.
    Please feel free to explain any reasons why I should go Intel or AMD.
    Thank you in advance

    Stick to AMD, better value and no spyware Spectre bug to slow down performance.

    Thank you for your response. I haven't decided yet but I'm thinking about them both and what benefits each might bring to the build.
    I hope that more people will reply to this. Thank you

    Coffee Lake FTW
    If you've always built AMD then it may be time to try an Intel build,
    Maximus Hero X Wifi "or similar", i7 8700k, Gskill "B-die" memory kit, fast M.2 NVME drive, Nvidia Pascal graphics card
    Factory default boost clocks are higher than AMD max overclock, overclocks much higher, better high speed memory support
    My ASUS M X Apex - 8700K is the fastest, smoothest desktop experience I have ever had.
    I haven't built an AMD system since socket 939 and have wanted to build AMD for awhile but they just aren't haven't reached the point to where I'm ready to drop my coin, hopefully the gap between the two closes sooner rather than later but at this point in time it's Coffee Lake FTW

    Well I'm starting to purchase the components for this new build. Its going to take some time as I cant purchase everything all at once. I'm going to do a intel build
    using the i7 8700k cpu. This build will be a ROG build. Today I purchased the Rog strix flair mechanical keyboard and the Rog pugio mouse. I will have some RGB bling but not overpowered at least for now. This build will be housed in the Fractal Design Define R6 and may have a water cooling loop or at least a water cooled AIO.
