Okay so hello guys I need some help I have b450 tomahawk max gskill Trident z RGB 16gb 3200mhz evga 550 b3 gtx 1060 6gb which I will do an update on 2080ti or 3070 but for now my cpu (ryzen 7 1700) memory controller is faulty I will rma it and now I want to buy cpu.

My question is should I go with zen+ ( 2700x) and not with zen2 ( 3700x or maybe 3600x) because the 2700x is more time on the market and they have fix the problems for oc and ram compatibility right ? What do you think ??

The 3600x is better than the 2700x in most workloads unless it's purely multi threaded. 

If possible go for the 3600, and yes zen 2 has a  better imc than zen+ and zen 1.

Zen2 has better memory support ? So if I go I will not have problems right?

Depends, assuming everything is fine and assuming you're not going for stupid frequencies, it should do the job.

Is b450 tomahawk support the zen3?? And btw if yes is worth to take something new ?? We don't know if zen3 will have problems 

 

Zen+ and zen2 already have some time on the market so the problems maybe are fixed and you are sure on what you buy

Better doesn't mean flawless. But you probably won't. The Zen 3 announcement is October 8 in case you want to wait.

Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

I mean if possible, wait for zen 3 and check what it has to offer, if not, go with zen 2.

Currently Using R5 3600 and i would definately recomend Zen2 since it has serious increase of IPC over zen+

Also if you can afford it another option is Ryzen 7 3800XT since it's still zen2 but unlike 3900X/XT it is reported that 3800XT reaches his advertised clock far better then the 3900 models which for gaming would be very well received despite that some people call it "waste of silicon" :)

 If you can't afford it - go for R5 3600 - makes my job done ;)

Get a R5 3600 now. If Zen 3 turns out to be way better. Sell the R6 3600 and get a Zen 3 chip.

Ah yeah. if you're not in a hurry - you can wait for zen 3 release so prices on zen2 will drop a bit ;)
