We’re doing a build video with this system, pictured above. It is a:
AMD Ryzen 1800x running @ 4.1ghz (Pstates overclock, 1.2v SOC voltage, ~1.41v chip voltage)
ASRock Taichi X370 P1.54 (beta) BIOS.
Bitfenix Shogun Case,
GSkill DDR4-3200 TridentZ 16-16-16-34 timings, running @ full 3200mhz.
Noctua NH-D15 Tower CPU Cooler
Toshiba RD-400 NVMe SSD
CoolerMaster 750M PSU
EVGA GTX 1080Ti (thanks @zeta for letting us use it!)
Top score Fire Strike score achieved with a Taichi apparently
I believe it has been posted here already.

We will see what happens but it is likely game level optimizations & memory that has proper speed + timings. Going form Windows 10 to Windows 7 never yielded such large improvements.

CH6 were bricking themselves and not liking memory that much, Gigabyte Gaming 5 started well and seem to have faded with failures. No-one is talking about MSI.

I had been thinking CH6, It certainly does have the sex appeal, but it seems also the high maintenance as well.
If someone is looking for a new board now, probably worth a look
X370 Fatal1ty K4 and X370 Killer SLI are iffy > 3.9GHz if you don't cool the VRMs though. I remember the Youtube review had a thermal result of > 60°C for 3.85GHz @ 1.356V or something similar.
Also the Killer SLI appears to lack USB 3.1 Gen 2.
The Taichi / Fatal1ty Pro seem to be tremendous value given how high priced the CH VI Hero and MSI Titanium are. Just the mosfets alone would be ~$32 & ac wifi I would value at ~ $20-30.Edited by AlphaC - 3/20/17 at 7:00pm
