  1. Save from now until release. If you have the extra dosh, go for the faster CPU. If not - well you have what you need.
  2. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wshzTH
  3. A320 chipset is incapable of any overclocking. B350 chipset has overclocking abilities, but is unable to do XFire / SLI, X370 can do all the things... This memory is on the QVL memory list certified up to the 2666 speed. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4S83V17360
  4. That is exactly what is happening...
  5. With nVidia, you can basically set power, and heat overheads, and let the card clock itself as high as it can go. Since you do not have any way of feeding the card more than 75 watts... it probably wont do much over what it is already clocked... and yes it is already overclocked from EVGA.
  6. With any OC, yes it may take more power than the PCI-E slot can provide - in which case the GFX card will become unstable. Only thing that you can do is try.
  7. Motherboard isnt going to really be the deciding factor in OC. That would be the CPU. Whats going on with your 1050?
  8. http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M/#Memory Check the QVL memory modules - make sure that you read the notes. You wont be getting 3000 speeds from this chipset - you will need to move up to the X370 chipset for that. Which, I know is not in your budget. 2666 memory is going to be your best bet.
  9. Considering that the turbo clock is 3.4, I don't personally think that it would be an issue to push to that point. Depending on the chip you could go faster, maybe slower. Pre-review samples have clocked pretty well.
  10. Yes you can overclock with the B350 chipset. The motherboard I linked is a mATX motherboard.
  11. Usually it is a good idea to stick to the QVL memory modules... especially with Ryzen being particularly picky about memory.
  12. There is not a cheaper B350 chipset mATX motherboard...

  14. @Logerss Newegg just released the page for the 1200. It does include the cooler (Wraith Stealth) and is $109.00 USD https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113446
  15. Person that posted that video, already has the R3... and has been testing it. From what I understand it tests out the same weather you are simulating it by cutting down a R5 in UEFI, or running the actual hardware.
