I've been feeling like I am doomed, but not because of anything in this thread.
All of this effort to get memory speeds up to 3200....can any of us claim it isn't fun? It may be annoying for some people, but for me, since I have already paid for all of my components and am not really upset at ANY memory speeds above 2400, this is just good entertainment value. Back on Feb 24th, none of us had any clue about what memory would work best, or what would or would not work. Everything was a gamble. 1800X vs. 1700X performance is the same way, a gamble for how well the 1800X would perform. Hitting even 3.85GHz comfortably(not pushing things, so fan speeds have been fairly low) is fine for me on the 1800X, and I will see how the new BIOS versions work when it comes to temperatures/fan noise before I try to go to 3.9 or 4.0GHz again.
When it doubt, look at the positives, we are on the bleeding edge of technology, and except for those who had to RMA a board due to bricking(pre 0902), we have survived without too much grief.
