If any of you remember my all AMD build, it can be found here.
This is an upgrade to that build, so I will keep this short.
PLEASE NOTE - System is still in WIP phase due to BIOS and Software support that is slowly rolling in, some pictures may be different then others due to me testing with different parts.
UPDATE: All cores running at 3.7Ghz, stock voltage while running on the stock cooler. Temps are mostly the same, performance improvements in single and multi-threaded applications.
Finally Ryzen is here....
And with new platforms comes new problems.
So far this upgrade has been fairly alright. The problems so far from the early adoption have been memory incompatibility, weird temperature readings, and lack of software and BIOS support. So I cannot unfortunately OC just yet. However later on I will update it. (Most likely later this week, or if I get bored, later today lol)
Compared to the 8370, the Ryzen 1700 completely kills it. Everything the 8370 did the 1700 will do twice as fast in half the time. AMD has really outdone themselves this time and have given us a nice fresh update to the aging FX architecture. The new Wraith Spire is excellent, and my old Wraith cooler fits over the socket with no problem, so any CPU coolers that use the latch should fit.
Now its no Intel killer, but its right up Intel league, and it'll give them a run for their money. I do agree its not the best for gaming but for consumers who do more then just gaming, the Ryzen series will suit you well.
For the other parts I upgraded the case to the Coolermaster Mastercase Maker 5 and the RAM I saved over from the X99 build
that I totally didn't replace with an FX system. :P
I hope I can push this system farther, stay tuned for updates!
AMD have outdone themselves with Ryzen 7. For $329 I obtained 8 cores and 16 threads for the price of a competing i7-6700K with half the cores and threads. Overclocked the CPU on all cores to 3.7Ghz on the stock cooler to close the single threaded performance gap between the 1700 and the 7700K.
I couldn't be more happy with this CPU, great investment that will serve my needs and last me for the AM4 platforms lifetime.
