from completed build Ryzen Shine

Outstanding processor Easily able to match Intel's offerings clock for clock in single threaded applications, and completely destroys them in multi threaded ones.

If you're looking for a Ryzen and will be using a custom cooler. There's little reason beyond binning to go for the 1800X

Stinkyfingers 37 points 5 months ago

So far I've had a great experience with my 1700x. Upgraded from an aging FX8320 that served me well. I gained a lot of performance across the board from games to editing/rendering. The FX8320 did well but I finally feel like I have Intel-level performance in games while still keeping the productivity potential of an 8core CPU from an AMD chip.

I haven't had any issues with compatibility or anything with my MSi b350 tomahawk board either. I've had the whole setup for a month now - OC'd to 3.9ghz since day 1. Sure the 1700 can be manually overclocked and comes with a cooler and can match the 1700x - but I'm enjoying utilizing AMD's OC utilities the X offers. It's neat - I'm not too upset about the little more I spent.

from completed build Overkill? What's that?

I originally planned to get an FX-8350 or i5 6600K, however, I heard the RYZEN rumours and held out till launch and then pulled the trigger on the 1700X. It may have been a "slight" overkill... It's a beast, it runs at 1-5% utilisation whilst typing this... (my i5 couldn't even do this lag-free) . Now this is amazing, offers more than I need and oc'd to 3.95 GHz easily.

from completed build Another Ryzen Build

Amazing performance and easily overclocked to 3.95 ghz stable 24/7! I see a lot of people going for the 1700 over the 1700X but I chose the 1700X due to feeling that the 95 watt over the 65 watt tdp would most likely yield more stable AND EASY overclocks, I'm not saying the 1700's can't be overclocked to the same clocks as the 1700X I'm just saying it overclocks easier with less tweaking of BIOS settings. Highly recommend to anyone looking to have a highly capable gaming computer AND a killer workstation environment.

Solid beast, 16 CPU - 8 core @ 3.9Ghz no sweat.

from completed build First VIDEO RENDERING build!

I love this CPU. It is great for rendering animations because of its 16 threads! Also I got a nice discount (100$)

from completed build Yin and Yang (Ryzen)

Runs like a dream. 8 Cores and can overclock very easily. Got it to run fine at 3.9ghz may go higher later on.

zprater 164 points 2 months ago

I wish I could rate this 6 starts! Went from 89% CPU usage while recording/streaming with 4 Cores/4 Threads to 30% usage while I'm recording, streaming, watching a YT video, and using multiple other tabs open in a browser. Absolutely flawless processor.
