What worked well? Choosing a Ryzen 7 1700 made my build much faster than i7-7700k could've. Although it falls a little below i7-7700k in gaming, other CPU intensive programs run better than i7 due to the higher number of cores and threads for the same price. Ryzen 7 1700 turned to be a better bang for the buck than i7-7700k.
The RGB is dope.
Many had trouble using Skill Trident Z RGB with Ryzen computers. Their RAMs got killed because of SPD data being overwritten or something. I didn't face that issue and everything runs seamlessly.
Problems: The motherboard BIOS is still in it's infant stages. My 3200Mhz RAM only runs at 2667 Mhz. Anything above and the computer goes haywire. Maybe flashing future BIOS updates may solve the problem.
