Microcenter has the Ryzen 7 1700x for 269.99 for in-store pickup only. So if you are looking to get on board with the new AMD CPU's and have a Microcenter nearby, might be worth a look.

Also if bundled with a motherboard there is a 30 dollar bundle discount as well.

Any recommendations for a good board to bundle with it ? Last time I looked, there was no general consensus on what board was the best choice for an MC bundle with the 1700x.

I currently have both an MSI 970 AM3+ and a Gigabyte Z68 that are still treating we well.

It really depends on how much you want to spend I guess. I've read good things about the MSI B350 Tomahawk board and a few people I know who have the board say it handles overclocking well for $99. Any compatible motherboard gets the $30 off though, so you could get a X370 board if you wanted to be extra sure that the board could handle any overclocking. I have an ASUS Strix board that I like a lot. Aesthetics also come into play as some of the B350 boards don't come in the best colors and a decent amount of even the lower X370 boards have RGB as well if you're looking for that.

I personally love the ASRock Taichi. Has incredibly good power delivery and VRMs, and looks very nice. Also, all those sata ports are a nice bonus if you have a huge array of drives.

I think I prefer my crosshair hero iv due to the more USB ports, but it costs a bit more than the Taichi, so I don't think it's worth the premium.

I bought ryzen 1700, the motherboard I got was:
MSI X370 GAMING PRO CARBON AC AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

So far it's working pretty well.

I'm not sure if this was a motherboard problem but Windows 10 would lockup after a few minutes (blue screen error something like "watchdog". This was a clean install of Windows 10. The solution was to update windows before it freezes.

Like I said not sure if that was a motherboard problem but once I got it up and running I really like it.

If you want just the processor try price matching in store at Staples. Staples price matched a Sumsung 960 Pro for me. With 110% price match, and the current price of this CPU at Staples, you will probably get another $15-$16 off this processor. Much better price than what I got the Ryzen 1700 price matched for($272.59)


EDIT: YMMV but Chatting with Staples online they are willing to price match. Final price - $254.29 before tax(if any).

So you got staples to price match the 1700 for $254.29?

Asus ROG Strix B350-F. Also on sale with $20 rebate. Combined with the $30 mobo-cpu combo deal, you can have this mobo for $60! The mobo is so good looking and easy to use.

The Tomahawk was actually my first choice, but it wasn't a 'thrilled with my decision' choice. I run hot and cold on MSI's boards - as I mentioned, I'm loving my 970 Gaming board, but I've have other older AMD MSI boards take a crap on me with overheated and blown VRMs.

I OC everything .... can't remember the last CPU I ran stock clocked, but we are going back to the glory days of the Celly 300a SECC with Abit BH6 boards. I was even doing the B21 SECC 'pin' tape trick on boards that didn't OC as easily as the Abit.

@futr_vision: Your Staples experiences are far better than mine. When I mention MC at my local Staples, the manager's eye twitches and he starts to grit his teeth and mutter something about not PMing MC.
