Recently upgraded to Ryzen after debating whether or not I should wait for RAM prices to go down. I am not disappointed by how things turned out, and I'm excited to be supporting AMD with my latest build.
I decided to forego 16GB of memory and instead put that extra money into the motherboard I really wanted. The Asus Strix X370-F is gorgeous and I couldn't be happier with how nicely the RGB light around the motherboard I/O accents the build.
I went with the R5 1600 CPU simply because it packs a lot of power and is very affordable. I have so far managed a 3.9Ghz OC at 1.35v and have my RAM clocked at it's advertised speed of 3200Mhz (also at 1.35v).
I was contemplating selling my water cooling parts to help fund this upgrade, but I couldn't justify the prices that I'd have to sell them at so I decided to keep them in my system. Temps are great and it's nice and quiet even under load.
The 390X will just have to do for the foreseeable future, because I haven't been impressed with the latest GPU advancements that AMD has made--this on top of the GPU price fluctuations forces me to stay with this card, but it's still a great performer.
I upgraded my monitor to the Acer XF270HU which is a 144hz, freesync, IPS display and it really looks amazing. I previously had the Acer G257HU, but wanted to increase my refresh rate and be able to capitalize on AMD's freesync for a low input lag experience.
Overall I'm very happy with how this build came out and can't wait to see what's next from AMD!
