This is so cheap that if you are a PC enthusiast and don't already have something of this caliber the question becomes - why not?

Ryzen 1700's can easily be overclocked to 3.8Ghz with a couple clicks on the bios. (hundreds of youtube videos show you how). At that point they more powerful than an Intel $1000 processor from 2-3 years ago. The AM4 motherboard/chipset platform will be supported for future AMD CPU's through 2020, and it's just an excellent all around choice! A "no-brainer" given the price!

It's motherboard specific as to where to find the BOIS options, but in it's simplest form it's change the CPU core voltage to 1.35V (AMD's recommended max voltage for 24/7 use) and you change CPU clock multiplier to 38x. Boom done.

I overclocked on five ASRock Tachi x370 board, an ASRock Fatal1ty X370 board, and a MSI Gaming Pro carbon x350 board, All are fine to 3.8Ghz. I only got 3.9Ghz on one, and I never got a stable 4.0Ghz, under stress testing. But coming from 3.2Ghz - it's a nice boost to 3.8Ghz. My chips were all 1700 chips.

Here's an example of a good video to learn about overclocking Ryzen.

You may just want to search for " + overclock + ryzen" on youtube to get a video specific to your motherboard.

DX12 is making it more important with CPU core loading.

I bought in on a previous Bestbuy deal with this Ryzen 1700 processor just over 2 weeks ago. I've never overclocked before and I would like to do so. I've tried looking online on how to do this but I've read quite a few versions, all of which looks rather complicated. Archeae - you said a couple of clicks on the bios. Can you tell me which clicks? Could really use it since I'm starting to get into video-editing (got the one with the RX580 GPU).

Ryzen likes faster RAM for a 5 or 10% general performance boost. RAM speed for the Ryzen matters more than with Intel chips.

PC3000 or PC3200 is ideal. PC2800 is okay. PC2400 works - but you are leaving those few performance percentages on the table.

RAM is expensive, but it seems to be slowly dropping back in price. You could pick up 8GB now, and more later when it drops further if budget is of utmost concern.

Have this mobo with an 1800x. Killer deal bundled together, and as stated before, can easily OC to about 3.8 without having to sweat bullets. Can even push 4 to 4.1 if you have good enough cooling and wanna get your hands "dirty" with voltage adjustment trial and error.

What is the performance difference between the 2700 with a x470 motherboard and this combo all else being equal? I have be holding out upgrading with an overclocked i5-2500k but this seem like great deal value wise.

The CPU itself is $250. You basically get a Mobo for free. Great deal if you're starting a new build.
