I just got done building my Ryzen 5 1600X with an Asus Strix B350-F, 16GB GSkill TridentZ RGB 3000mHz, R9 390X (GPU), and couldn't be happier. Upgraded from an FX-8350. Amazing chips. Fast and stable. No RAM issues like everyone complained about in the early months. I don't see a need for a faster chip and setup for gaming at least. Cooling is the AMD Wraith Spire and idles @ 33*C. So suck it - naysayer "holier than thou's-" that say a Spire can't handle this chip. I get up to 50* when gaming.
