    Question Ryzen 2600 (non-X) XFR/PBO clock speed on Crosshair VII Hero

    Hi, I'm going to order my new PC this week (final return to the desktop EliteMasterRace after two Clevo laptops (P870DM1 & P650HS-G)).

    Crosshair VII Hero WiFi (yeah, I can't use LAN) will be heart of my rig. It will be powered by Seasonic 750w Focus Platinium PSU.
    RAM: choice is one - G.Skill 2x8GB Kit of Samsung B-Die 3200Mhz (F4-3200C14D-16GTZR)

    I wanted to buy 2700X but... it's twice expensive as 2600 (150 euro vs 315 euro). The reason why I choose 2600 is... I will order top Zen2 CPU next-gen just after the release (thts why I want future-proof mobo like CH7). I don't have own GPU yet (borrowed R9 290 from friend) until GTX 2080/1180 release - so again I can survive few months on 2600.

    The question is... how much OC or (for better Single Core Performance) boost I can expect from XFR2/PBO on CH7? Cooler will be (temporary) Dark Rock Pro 4.

    Clock speed difference of 2600 vs 2600X will be huge (on XFR2/PBO)? I would like to avoid wasting additional 50 euro on 2600X. Always more money for later Zen2 & LC.

    I like numbers & overclocking like all of us here. So it would be a shame not to overclock 2600 even if it's temporary solution.
