they are standard Intel m.2 AC wifi.

not the best, but you could do MUCH worse.

you could always buy a USB-based wifi module, preferably the ones with extension cables instead of direct plugin.

Edit: Just looked into this a bit more. Some of these kits are v4.31 which ARE Samsung B die, some are v5.39 which are not. However, there are reports of people being able to run the v5.39 at 2933MHz perfectly stable at default timings.


The easiest way to get the fastest ram for Ryzen is to buy G. Skill Flare X ram. I have a 16GB kit (two 8GB dimms) DDR4 3200 cas 14-14-14-34. Just load the xmp profile 2 in bios and it will be up and running at full speed. This particular kIt is Samsung b-die.

You look at the top overclock scores on this web site for Ryzen. Few B350 booards are on that list. Penny pinching when overclocking is foolhardy in my opinion.

MSI B350 Pro carbon would like to have a word with you , it's the same VRM as the X370 Pro Carbon.

Also the Ryzen 5 1600 would only use up about 80A at 4GHz , based on 100-110A 8 cores as well as buildzoid's core disabled testing. 80A/4 phases = 20A so as long as you get a board with doubled low side (i.e. every ASUS/Gigabyte/MSI) and not a Asrock B350 board with 3 phases variants carrying two 26A lowside mosfets per phase it should be fine.

I can see hw you would interpret his post differently as he pointed out the board he wanted had the CF/SLI but was out oif his price range.


@gordesky1, Do you need the x370 chipset? Read the specs for both. B350 does do crossfire but the X370 has more lanes. And the killer is a great board from what I've read of the posts from people that own it. Also I'm not sure if the killer is the Asrock board that your referring to? Remember this thread is flying by and no-one can go back pages to find what you mean unless you drop a link or quote yourself. wink.gif



Yep I did say ASRock X370 Killer SLI/ac AM4 AMD Promontory which you quoted it too in this post:)


But things change and i pretty much went all all out cause i sold my ps4.

So got the gigabyte x370 k7 and the 1700 and the corsair vengeance 3200 memory:) should have it in 2 days:) Posted that 2 pages back but yea as you said this thread flys:)


I figured its best to go all out and spend a extra 50-60$ and get a pretty good board for future upgrades and support for cpus known support for overclocking that comes out which im sure the k7 will have sense it is their top board. Im sure a 350 board or even the x370 asrock killer would've been fine tho but my pass boards was always in the top tier boards and it probably would bother me which im sure some others would feel the same too lol

Would've got the asrock tachi but not in stock anywere...

I own the x370 professional gaming and it comes with intel 3168 wifi card. I bet the Taichi has the same. Comparing pictures of the wifi part looks similar. On my board the m.2 card is screwed in a type of box where you can connect the antennas. It is a 2 in 1 device. If it brokes. I think you can replace it by changing the unit.

They are all the same (taichi/fat pro/killer ac) and you can replace them, I replaced mine with a killer-ac (1535).. It performs better than the 3xxx Intel series (for me of course)

When I was talking about high end x370 boards I was not talking Pro Carbon x370. I was talking Crosshair VI Hero and MSI Titanium, and Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 5.. Their vrms and heatsinks are superior to the lesser x370. Some say the Titanium VRM is inferior,but not true. Yes it has less phases than Crosshair but its vrm components are of higher specs and its vrm heatsink is the best of the x370 class. Once again look at the list of top Ryzen overclockers on this website. Yes there are 1 or 2 B350 boards,but most the rest are MSI Titanium and Asus Crosshair VI.

It has been quite a while since I had AMD setup up and running, is there a consensus about AMD ACHI drivers? Use the default Windows driver or install AMD one? I see that the chipset driver package includes the ACHI drivers but does not install them.

Titanium has more phases than crosshair, nice pwm controller. Not so crazy about fets. They do the job.

You're missing some boards there. One or two that are a wee bit cheaper than even the gaming 5....
