Just get a C6H and two sticks of Samsung B-Die.

You get:
The best VRM's around. TI nexFET 90+ efficiency 12 phases.
36W water cooling header, with both AIO or wPump (both share the wattage though).
Water Flow sensor support (only supports bitspower version though)
Two water temp headers
Nice OpAMP and DAC. Like, audio enthusiast nice.
Asus Support on this Forum. See Motherboards C6H overclocking thread.

wish it had wifi and 2 m.2, which I need. the audio is similar to taichi, I think, slightly better.
whats this water sensor? any link on info

I'm leaning toward the 1700x for the savings but I really wanted that 1600x lol

What would you do? I suspect the 16 thread chip would be far better a h264 cpu encoding using OBS Studio for gameplay recording. I know I can use the GPU to hardware encode too.


For sure I'd recommend the 1700X, because you can use the extra cores for H.264 encoding. The only time I would recommend the 1600X is when you are tightly budget constrained. They all seem to top out at 3.9 - 4.1 GHz.

You also lose no performance with the 8 core Ryzen in single threaded performance, while on Intel, the 6 core Broadwell E is slightly faster on average I find at overclocks.

Incorrect. The X370 Taichi has the same VRM, only in a 12+4 phase, versus 8+4 phase on the X370 Crosshair. Both motherboards use the TI NextFET Mosfets. It has the strongest VRM of any X370 board and is $50 USD cheaper than the Crosshair.

Although the Taichi, being a cheaper board with a more potent VRM, doesn't have the audio features and water cooling features. It's a more cheap strong VRM, but barebones otherwise board. Crosshair has more USB ports too. ON the upside, the Taichi has Wifi (although you could probably buy a wifi card for the Asus - it has an M.2 slot for it).

We have seen optimizations for Total War: Warhammer too.

Bethesda has indicated they will work with AMD too. Agree that more will follow.
