    CONGRATS... You will have serious, serious performance improvement from FX8350 to 1800X.
    That's upgrade, not Skylake-Kaby Lake.
    That's bigger improvement than Sandy Bridge to Kaby Lake.

    And Intel i7-6900K still didn't even drop on 500$.
    Because everyone who buy him have weaker CPU from two for 500$.
    I doubt Intel could sell even for 500$ i7-6900K except small number.
    Reading around it just seems Microcenter wants to relieve themselves of old stock. No other retailer has lowered prices by that much. Intel hasn't reacted to Ryzen, yet. Not price wise, anyway.

    Question AMD Strix

    I apologize in advance if there was a repeat.

    We should expect the motherboard chipset x370 in series Strix?

    Thanks for the encouragement

    Unfortunately, today things aren't looking too great, Amazon has not changed my order status from preorder to actual order, have not charged my card, and have sent zero emails. Hopefully they process the order later today and get it shipped out ASAP, I have 1 day shipping on the order and was really looking forward to putting this thing together this weekend. I have everything else in my hands including the CPU, all I need is the motherboard.

    The second tough situation is a complete lack of availability of motherboards locally. Best buy is a complete joke around here, and the tiger direct store closed a few years back. Leaving us with basically no stores that carry a full range of PC components.

    I have emailed a local gaming PC boutique shop to see if they will have mercy on a local person, and sell me the crosshair VI hero from them, then I would be set.

    Not sure how this is going to turn out.........

    Well, due to the incompetence and lies from Amazon, I was unable to secure a crosshair vi hero for my build. Therefore, I will be using an asrock fata1ity x370 professional instead. Hopefully everything turns out, but in the back of my mind, I will never forget what Amazon did. not cool to take a first hour, first day preorder, and not ship it on the date promised.

    If I ordered that early on, and didn't get it, how many people did this happen to today? How many people will be sitting with a processor and no board to go with it?

    I also ordered GTX 1080 and H115i cause i'm going to test for MAX OC. I really do hope AMD come thru with this and their LAB testing results are true what they indicate.
    With the amount of pre-orders recorded at Amazon and Newegg, there's lots who are putting faith in AMD.

    There are not many things you can do to tune memory right now. Only the primary timings are available for adjustment. We have to use our best Samsung B-die modules to bench at DDR4-3600 on the AMD platform. These are modules that will do DDR4-4266+ on Z270. Currently, the secondary timings on the AMD platform can only be crudely adjusted by messing with different ratios and using BCLK.

    For people looking at achieving stable 3K + speeds, you need a decent CPU (lots of variance) and to overspend on memory. There's considerable scope for disappointment if people are looking to easily achieve the rated speeds of kits binned on an Intel platform.

    With all of that in mind, a DDR4-2666 purchase is sensible. However, there could even be some give/take at those speeds depending on how aggressively that kit was binned on Intel.

    Lastly, CPU overclocking is landing around the 4GHz mark. Expectations need to be realistic.

    I have no such problems, when I like something I'm ready to wait even 2-3 weeks if need.
    I used on ASUS BIOS and I can't say I don't like to change, yes that's true, but I don't need to change when ASUS is available and I could wait little.
    Better wait Crosshair 6. It's weird how small number of motherboards, but AMD couldn't resist any more ... and when they recognize what market think about Ryzen they hurry to launch him before time.
    First plan was to customers build RIGs in end of March or April.
    Performance are so good and AMD deserve and Extreme and Gene motherboard.

    Even I think to back to home.
    I start gaming carrier with Athlon 3200+ 64bit and ASUS ATI 9800 PRO.
    In that days hardware was more durable and more simple than now, RMA was very rear compare today.

    One side tell me wait Intel X299 but other part say AMD. Because I would never bought processor more expensive than Ryzen 5, usually I go on cheaper models because Intel offer nothing for 500$, 12 PCI-E lanes more and 200MHz.. they sell for 600$.
    Logic say that Intel can't launch 6 core CPU stronger than AMD 1800X. That mean Intel will have only 8 and 10 cores Skylake-E better than AMD in best scenario.
    Except high price, we could only estimate 700-800 or 1000 their power consumption will be twice higher than AMD. Again Intel can't reach AMD performance per watt even with Skylake-E and Kaby Lake-E and their samples are finished before Ryzen show up.

    Except if Intel have backup plan and we know nothing about that and after Ryzen is launched from them we hear only silence.
    And reviews who try to justify Intel with poor i7-7700K. No one will help them except i7-7700K in games locked on 2 and 4 cores.
    That's like team from 3rd league beat champion from 1st and they start to blame judge because they couldn't hit goal for 90 minutes or 5 years depend how you look.
