    Not looked at any bundles yet will be few months before i upgrade but looking at the 1700x will overclock it a little so the extra i would of spent on the 1800x can go on better aio cooler or something else. And Asus PRIME X370-PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard with G.Skill TridentZ RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory but will most likely change my mind before then.
    How about yourself?

    Difficult to say until we know the full range. If the rumours are correct then the 1100 and 1500 look attractive, although if they produce a quad channel Zepplin then that could be a rather cool thing and Raven Ridge may surprise us with it's performance.

    I don't think I can wait long enough for the cards within my price range. I might have to just get a i5 7600k

    1600x and an msi mortar b350 for a WC'd (twin 240mm rads) matx build.

    ​Can't decide between the 1070/X Im not sure if there's much difference. Especially when manual OC. I also plan to go with the rest near identical to you. Not sure which PSU I need though. So I'm waiting till Tomorrow when the reviews are out

    Looking to get a 1080ti or Vega.

    I went for:

    NZXT S340 Elite
    NZXT Kraken X62 AIO Cooler
    RyZen 1700
    16GB (4x4) G.Skill RipJaws 2666
    Gigabyte X370 Aorus Gaming 5

    Got my case today, just need the rest of it now, although it'll be 2 weeks until I get the X62 AM4 bracket, so will use the stock Wraith cooler (advantage of the 1700) until that arrives.

    I'll stick with the 1700 while I can see how the platform matures (let's be honest it's more CPU than any hobbyist needs) and make my next stop a 1900/2000X when they get announced as and when.

    1800x and a b350 board is what I'm thinking.

    Why? Because I need moar cores. My 4690k, even at 4.4GHz, just isn't enough to cope with my more intensive audio work, and photo work is just painfully slow, with various tasks taking upwards of 20 seconds to complete. I'm aware that Intel offer solutions with more power than the midrange i5s, but the price premium (especially after factoring in a 2011 board) is just excessive.

    I want b350 because it's adequate for my needs, and has the advantage of coming in m-atx format. Full size atx is just a bit old-hat, I think.
