A2 B2 ARE the best slots for dual channel memory. On rare occasion, certain sticks may work in the other slots, but it really is very rare and not ideal. You will always get better OC on A2/B2 slots as they're nearer to the CPU

I'm back on latest bios, stable 3600CL14 T1. Moving up to 3666 for my next tests.

Also, off topic I know, but I just had my 4 year cancer check-up and I'm still cancer free!

It's coming!

Just because Gigabyte have it doesn't mean ASUS aren't working on it. In my experience, ASUS prefer to spend extra time testing new AGESA and it's integration with their UEFI.

What's up with the Chipset drivers, on ASUS BIOS page they recommend 18.50.16 and Official AMD says 19.10

So which one do we use?

AMD Ryzen 2700X (4.5GHz Boost) (w/ Kraken X62) + SOC 1.1V (Forced)
ASUS Crosshair VII Hero Wi-Fi (BCLK 104) BIOS 1103
GSkill F4-4133C19D-16GTZR @ 3605MHz CL14 14-15-14-24-38 1.47V
MSI GTX1080 Sea Hawk X 2.1GHz
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB Windows 10 x64 v1809
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB Steam/Games

ALWAYS go for the very latest release from AMD. They're the ones that actually develop the software drivers, Asus doesn't do anything but supply OLD downloads.

Would rather get the latest version, every time it's available.
