    The APU's are based on Excavator though, Raven Ridge are the Zen / Vega based ones.

    Easily the G4560 is still the best lowest cost CPU (if you can find one). But the R3's really compete with the i3's and for the price they are better (depending on the task) or at least very similar (in gaming). Plus can overclock! For content creators or designers looking for a low cost quad core, and can use an existing GPU or want to buy a GPU for hardware acceleration anyway it seems the better choice, but I will admit I hoped the R3 would be faster than it is in single thread stuff.

    The up and coming APU's may be the chips competing more with the Celeron/Pentiums (and the i3's if you need the IGP)...decent CPU performance combined with decent IGP performance for any basic builds :thumbup: Won't be amazing but will get better once they come out with a Zen based APU. Right now I'd still be buying a Pentium for builds on the tightest budget if you are using a dedicated GPU, and either the Pentium/i3 if you have no use for a dedicated GPU. If you have a little bit more $$ to spare over the Pentium and will be running a dedicated GPU the R3 is the way to go.

    Let me know how the asrock board treats you, I have the Gigabyte but I may get an Asrock as well for HTPC build

    Alienware Area-51 Threadripper first look and cinebench benchmark. Interesting they just have a small 120mm AIO cooler on it.

    Hi guys,

    AMD Ryzen 1600
    ASRock AB350M-PRO4
    16GB DDR4 Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3000C15

    I am looking at purchasing this combo. Has anyone had any experience with OCing with this ram and motherboard? Preferably trying to reduce price if possible

    For OCing you are really going to want a better board and if you OC on that board it would be a good idea to keep volts down

    Edit: Also 6 caps over 9 phases seems odd given it's normally 2 per phase

    Power delivery quality is still a concern as cheap boards I imagine will struggle with 1.45v

    Got to be honest I live the Threadripper packaging, looks awesome and considering how cheap the CPU's are to make AMD can splurge a little.

    I just can't believe how many people dropped the damn things during unboxings *facepalm*.
