    Good point, hadn't considered that! My h110iGTi will need a new bracket...I'd best go visit Corsair.
    Still want to see some indy benchmarks however - and a few more mobo options wouldn't go amiss

    Went for the 1800X. Always wanted a high end CPU and this is my way in for a price i can afford. Waiting for more mATX boards. Hopefully a ROG Gene variant at some point and then stick 16gb of 3200MHz RAM in there. Then build a pc for my nephew with the parts i upgraded...

    I'm itching to pull the trigger on the 1700X, but I've got no idea which AIO cooler i should be looking at, and if any of them will fit AM4 out the box?

    I want to buy, seems a bit crazy (without more data) choosing between the offerings. DDR4 seems really pricey atm (SSD is covered) so my hand may well be forced downwards on the CPU to a 1700, especially as cooling is included. Without more detail of what the 1700X and 1800X brings to the party "real world" I'll probably sit out the first wave.

    It might be a smart play to get the DDR4 earlier? Advice on best value ryzen friendly/tested ram would be great. I had my heart set on 2x16gb as a minimum, £300 seems so high though...

    1700-£320 Vs 6800k-£420

    Surely you're joking?

    These are the 8-cores, and the prices are amazing.

    I'm going for an 8-core for editing work, but also can't wait to see the prices of the 4's and 6's. I'm sure those on lower budgets will be very happy.

    There will be plenty by the looks of it. A couple of 6c/12t looking to be priced around Intels i5 4c/4t and a fair few AMD 4c/8t chips priced lower than that

    Then there are the AMD 4c/4t priced around intel i3's and higher

    It's OK dude, no one's ringing the Intel bell anymore, give it up.

    Looking forward to an AMD build, its been a while. Waiting for reviews though.

    im a bit confused, on the info for the asus prime 370x it says max 2666mhz ram and i thought 3200mhz could be used on all the ryzen motherboards

    I'm waiting for reviews to see exactly what the differences are between the 1700 and the x chips. If you can just straight up manually overclock the 1700 to the same speeds that you can get out of an 1800x then its a no brainer. If they x chips clock better then they might be worth the extra price.

    1700x. Unless of course, the normal 1700 is the same thing but underclocked.
