Do you even remember Sandy Bridge and X99 launch? Was flawless wasn't it? Why did you even buy an AM4 platform? With your experience you should have done your research. Yes the platform was rushed but they are working to fix it. For now it works damn fine unless you absolutely have to get that RAM of yours to 3200 to get minimal performance gains over 2933 that will probably boot just fine.
CPU OC is a part of the silicone lottery but that's just the way it is.
I understand that some people just have to get it all at the start but come on, give the guys some slack. It works fine, just lower your settings and wait for the may update at least. Or get back to your trusty old Intel build that hasn't been improved much for yeeeeeeeeeears.
I still don't understand why you are defending AMD. Because X99 wasn't a great release, we are supposed to let AMD get away with this release? I don't like this "slippery slope" argument..."well the X99 sucked so it's OK for Ryzen to suck too."
Not in my world. You even said it yourself, the platform was rushed. What is there to defend? They rushed a product, and it has bugs. All manufactures are having cold-boot issues. My ****ty FX with a slower hard drive boots 10-15 seconds faster than Ryzen with an M.2 drive. Memory is like rolling the dice.
This isn't aimed at ASUS...they are trying. This is just me saying AMD prematurely released this product and I don't think it is acceptable. How you guys can contort this to make it "our fault for early adopting" blows my mind...because this shouldn't be on us. This is on AMD.
