Ryzen 1600 Build to replace Haswell Rig

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade my full-ATX i5 4670k rig to a 6-core Ryzen 1600 (non-X) micro-ATX build in a Fractal Design Define Mini C case. I'd like to keep the stock AMD Wraith Spire cooler but be able to overclock the chip to at least 3.8Ghz.

I've heard mixed things about motherboard instabilities and incompatibilities with different RAM kits, so I'd like some advice on whether or not my chosen components will play nice with each other and can achieve my target overclock.

These are the motherboards I'm considering:

The RAM kit I'm considering is the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4-3200 kit . I've read that Ryzen takes better advantage of faster RAM kits than Intel, so I'm looking at DDR4 3000 or faster.

I'll be recycling the rest of my components. Stability and low temps / noise are important to me, so I don't mind dropping the maximum achievable overclock of 4.0Ghz down to 3.8 if it means I can get away with using the stock cooler and not worry about high temperatures.

The G.Skill Flare X is the same price as the Corsair LPX but is only 2400 vs 3200 on the Corsair. Is there a big performance drop with Ryzen at 2400mhz?

And why do you suggest Asrock over MSI and ASUS?

Right now the only 3200MHz RAM working on AM4 for sure is the G.Skill Flare X.

Heard good things for this specific AsRock and personally my best experience was with an AsRock.
