TBH tho, since you already have the whole Intel build already. You could just return the i5 and fork over a bit more for an i7... Probably wouldn't make a huge difference to the money out of your pocket all things considered. It would also perform probably the same if not a bit better in most cases, and it's definitely less of a headache; there is some beta testing still going on at the expense of early adopters with ryzen lol.

Now if you can exchange & not lose any money or no more than $50 to $75 at the end of day, I say go for it thumb.gif

Getting an R5 1600 really wouldn't cost me anything.
Z270 + 7600K + CRYORIG H7 = $400 - $10 shipping = $390
B350 + R5 1600 + Wraith Spire cooler (free) = $320
$390-320 = $70

I would end up saving $70 by going Ryzen in this scenario.

Benefits for the 7600K remain the same: best-in-class single-core performance, support for much faster memory, better overclocking potential, a mature platform and full compatibility, more feature-rich budget-oriented boards (Z270 vs B350), and frankly I like the Z270 boards better.

It's tough though, because the R5 1600 is much faster for fully multi-threaded apps and only a hair slower in those that aren't, and the socket has legs.

Unfortunately, the reason I went with the 7600K is because I'm quite keen on saving that extra $110.

I would say switch. We are already talking about saving money and in the long run I do think that the 6/12 would be more beneficial. Also there are some nice x370 boards which do not cost that much and do not lack that much of the Z270 features.

You can see my rig- when it comes to saving I would go with AM4 all day. I mean the platform would be supported at least 2-3 more years for sure and I thing that this is very important as well.

I picked up the MSI B350 TOMAHAWK it is an absolutely great motherboard, got my 1600 to 4.0 can even do 4.1 but not tested too much as of yet. Look into that board if you want.

I've had such bad experiences with MSI hardware, but I like their B350 boards the best out of what's out there. What has your experience been with memory compatibility? I would like to run DDR4 3000+ but do not want to spend a fortune for it.

I havent played to much with memory, but currently running gskill @2933. Will play more with it when i get time. I was able to boot @ 3200 but was unhappy with timings. But the board overall is solid.

Basically the main reason why I decided to stick with my Z270 setup biggrin.gif & besides, there's no Ryzen itx for me to buy wth.gif

Move to the six core if you can. The extra cores and threads will help with your FPS minimums and help prevent dips while playing. That is often overlooked as people focus mainly on average FPS. With you also working with Adobe products, I would say this is a no brainier thumb.gif

op, something you need to be aware of. if you have a microcenter near you they are currently knocking $100 off the price of the board if you buy the chip at the same time. that would mean that the asus prime x370 pro motherboard would be $60 before tax out the door. the 1600 would work great in combo with that board. skip the b chipset and go with the x370.
