My situation is very unique actually. I wasn't planning on adopting Ryzen until at least the 3000 series. However, one day in June 2018, the mail man delivered me a ASRock AB350 Pro4 and some Samsung B-dies from an uncle of mine (Don't be surprised, my uncle always sends me stuff to sell on ebay). The board needed some repair and being a Electronics Tech by trade he figured I could repair it and sell it on eBay, so that was my plan all along. However, once it was repaired (PCIe slot was shattered and PCIe pins had melted, and no back plate was to be found) I couldn't find the will to put it up on eBay (lol), so I bought a 2600X for it and was surprised that it just worked like new. I wasn't expecting it to be as solid as it has been so I sold my Rampage III Extreme and Xeon to another over clocker here and been using this setup ever since late last summer.
The problem I now face is the fact that I don't do mediocre or mid range boards myself, I do boards in the enthusiast class (mainly because I want longevity with very high quality components), not only that I figure the X570 and Ryzen 3000 will be the series that the industry finally starts taking AMD seriously. Since I was waiting for gen three all along I can't get myself to buy a X370 or X470 board knowing I will be getting the Ryzen 9 3000 series soon (when I already have a working AM4 board) as that was never the plan. So this repaired B350 board has been holding me over until X570 appears on the scene. I want a truly good board for Ryzen 3000, something that will last as long as my Asus Rampage did for me (which went through 3 CPU upgrades), maybe a Taichi Ultimate level or another anus, maybe the next Crosshair X570. I will probably use this 2600X for a few weeks or maybe even a Month as I watch closely everyone else jump on the 3000, haha. Anyway, once I am satisfied that the 7nm 3000 series is the one to jump on, I will then retire this 2600X into Home Server duties and then get the Ryzen 9 16 core chip, assuming its a real product. I just hope this B-die that I already have is OK on the new X570 boards, which there is no indication it won't be. The ram I am working with here is something called TeamGroup Team Dark Pro and it appears to be decent enough not to have to replace it (except for what ever cheap DDR4 I get for the server of course).
Oh, and for some reason I cant get this system to do over 3200 Mhz ram. I spent a week or two messing with it and just gave up. The 3200 XMP profile seems to work great though, but I wanted my first Ryzen system to do 3600 or better.
