This was an upgrade from an FX 8320 OC to 4.2 Ghz and 990FX board. Most components were carried over to the Ryzen system. I must say, this is a very noticeable increase in performance! This CPU takes anything I throw at it and doesn't even break a sweat. Handbrake encode times on my custom settings are less than 1/4 the time it took the FX to complete, Blender renders much faster, games are smoother with higher frame rates, and the list goes on. It was well worth the upgrade. Even with the dated and aging GPU I have seen average frame rate gains as high as 50% over the 8320. The AGESA 1006a BIOS update (V3.0 for this board) seems to have solved the early memory problems and stability issues. My board has no issue using the XMP profile for 3200 RAM with the correct timings and the system is fully stable. Shop around and be very selective on your RAM choice. DDR4 3200 is the fastest supported so far, but this will likely change in time. Get the fastest you can, Ryzen performance gains are pretty much linear up to DDR4 3600.
The Ryzen platform still has some rough edges that need smoothing out, but it is at the point now where it will run fine in most any circumstance. For such a new platform, I'm surprised at how well it works. I've not had any stability issues at all. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this CPU and platform. I'm not even going to bother overclocking it yet, it's plenty fast enough for me.
This CPU runs very, very cool. Temp monitoring software reports the 1700X and 1800X at 20 degrees Celsius higher than it actually is. Subtracting the 20 degrees, the highest I've seen is 52 degrees running handbrake, and 54 degrees under heavy gaming load. It hovers around 35 degrees when browsing the net. I'm using a Corair H 60 AIO cooler. It is also extremely efficient. I have seen ~96 watts or so under heavy load, and 20-35 during internet browsing.
XFR boosting is an absolutely awesome thing! This CPU with the H 60 regularly runs at 3.5 GHz on all cores, and boosts as high as 3.9 GHz when using less cores.
Things to consider:
I actually was going to get the Ryzen 5 1600X, but the sale price for the 1700X made me go after it instead. The 1600X is roughly equal to or faster compared to the 1700X at stock clocks in games. So if all you're doing is gaming, that's the top choice. If you (Like me) do other things as well such as rendering, video encoding, photo shopping, or CAD work, the 1700X makes more sense. It is also likely a bit more future proof than the hex core Ryzens are as well.
Get a good cooler if getting one of the X models! They do not come with a cooler (As of the date I bought mine). The non X CPU's have a very nice stock cooler. The Corsair H 60 is more than enough for this beast at stock clocks and is dead silent. There are many great air coolers out there, too. Just look for one that comes with the AM4 bracket. Most companies will send one separately if the cooler doesn't come with it.
TLDR; This CPU is more than enough to handle anything you want to do. It is a massive upgrade from anything older (2008-2014), especially any FX CPU and quad cores. Ryzen is about 76% faster than Piledriver (FX) clock for clock! I am very happy with it and recommend it to anyone looking to build a new system.
- 4.0ghz on 1.35V (the X in 1700)
- Runs very cool. Idle temps are 25c -30c and full load temps are 50c. Overclocked and full load is 65c. This is with a H60 in a sfx case.
- Runs any and all programs with easy and no issues.
- AMD has fixed all of their initial programs.
- Video Editing (Black Magic Resolve) works beautiful. This thing crashes any projects I throw at it.
- Running VBox with this many cores is a dream.
This is my first build with AMD and I am very happy with this. I will continue to support them if they keep this kind products coming!
I have had this 1700x for 6 months and my God this thing is incredible! I have been using it for both video editing and game streaming. This CPU can do it all. I have been able to play and record games with obs H264 at medium settings. AMD you rock!
Top reviews from other countries
This is a fantastic CPU, definitely worth taking a peak if you're wanting to start in PC Gaming and not have to pay ridiculous prices that Intel are offering. This CPU is super close in terms of performance to the i7 7700k and half the price!
Easy to install and easy to control with the help of the Ryzen Master software where you can Tweak your custom or premade 'gaming' preset which clocks the CPU up to 4Ghz for you without the worry of voltages and timings on your RAM.
Now this CPU won't be churning out games on Max settings but I've been playing majority of my beefy titles like GTAV, Watchdogs 2, Witcher 3, AC Origins and all on Very High settings paired with my 980Ti with either MSAA or MSAAx2 - MSAA with maybe 2 or 3 frames dropped here and there - MSAAx2 with around maybe 4 or 6 frames dropped, so it's definitely playable if you want to get a little better quality but the regular MSAA is your best bet if you want to play Very High settings with 60fps 98% of the time 👌🏻
Streaming at 1080p and 48 fps seems to affect the performance very little. I barely notice dips when recording/streaming.
Also gets 200+ fps on League at medium settings.
It works perfectly well with my GTX 1080 and 16 GB Ram, and I'm yet to encounter any compatibility or performance issue.
I would totally recommend this CPU and the overall rating says it all, anyway.
