Thanks.
I have an X470 with the R7 1700, and zero issues. If you're sure you're not ever going to upgrade your CPU before a new platform comes along, you can go with the X370 for cheaper. BUT, if you want to go for newer processors on the AM4 platform itself in a few years, better go with the X470. It is more likely to receive long term support compared to X370. With X370 you miss out on XFR 2 and precision boost 2, which can significantly boost your CPU performance (provided the cooling is there).

Diablix6 Please, can someone tell me how does Dr. Debug works? If it is turned on, should it after OS boot show any code? My M/B shows me AA / 40, and I have read that AA code is ACPI (SATA/IDE devices) and 40 is memory related problems. But I have also read, that those codes are OK, that I shouldn't worry, that when PC boots, everything is alright. And I don't want to remove cooler, paste and cpu, and then applying it all over again just to find out that those codes doesn't mean anything.



Also, one stick of ram stopped working after I updated BIOS to the newest version L3.43. I wanted to try new BIOS, because after update to P2.00 I couldn't oc my memory to 3466 anymore, just at 3200 and I hoped this version might solve this problem. Anyway, I tried that stick in different slot, but without success, and second stick works in all slots.
Is it coincidence, or is it possible that I had problem with that one stick, and after update the system is more strict about errors, and it doesn't allow to work any more? Or is it possible that BIOS update somehow screwed up one of my RAM sticks?

2x8. Duak Rank is harder but apparently the Taichi's memory traces are laid-out for four equal speed slots. I do have a set of dual rank D-die I was able to get 4 sticks to 3266MHz, have not tried them on the new bios.

Senniha With the new agesa 1.0.0.1 is Latency improved compere to beta 0.0.7.2?Is any Pci 4.0 setting enabled?Cos they plan not to support in older Mobos at least ,Aorus got it out in their x470 before the statements so users can test it with one bios.

My hope was to upgrade to the 12 core this fall but with memory only stable at stock speeds (2133) I am thinking I might be better off getting an x570 board.

It was missing the sata cables but still had the un-opened IO plate, manual etc. I was able to get the Ryzen 1600 to 4ghz without issue. My question is on the BIOS. It has 1.6 on it now. Should I upgrade to 2.0/3.0 even though I do not have an APU? Also, any update on the Ryzen 3000 bios? My plan is to use the 1600 until fall when I plan on getting a 12 core CPU - hoping the market will calm down by then and prices drop some.
If you want to reach higher RAM frequencies you should probably update it.
