The 8 core, 16 thread 2700X is AMD s second generation Ryzen 7 flagship following in the wake of the Ryzen 7 1800X which continues to offer excellent multi-core value for money. This new Pinnacle Ridge processor features the Zen+ architecture with 12nm lithography compared to 14nm previously. Whilst there is no increase in the number of cores, the stock base/boost clocks appear to have received a bump up to 3.7/4.1 GHz from 3.6/4.0 GHz. The 2700X is compatible with both the new 400 series and 300 series of motherboards. Early benchmarks indicate that the 2700X has a slightly greater effective speed than the 1800X, although further benchmarks are necessary to quantify this. The processor includes a Wraith Prism cooler and is in the same bracket as the 1800X and Intel s Coffee Lake i7-8700K. Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for workstation users.

- Price for performance can't be beat vs. 1st gen Ryzen and existing Intel CPUs; i.e. the 2700X is $30 cheaper than a 8700K
- Backward compatible with X370 and B350 motherboards (with the right BIOS update)
- Noticeable higher clock speeds vs. 1700X, especially under full load - up to 500Mhz faster clock speeds!
- Precision Boost 2.0 and XFR2 are built into the CPU, which means these features are intact and work even with an older X370 motherboard
- Improved compatibility with higher DDR4 memory speeds vs. 1700X
- Operating temperatures are about the same in spite of the fact the CPU having a 10W higher TDP rating vs. 1700X
- AMD's Ryzen Master Utility really does work!
- Wraith Prism CPU cooler is included and is adequate for stock CPU speeds
- Very limited overclocking headroom unless extreme cooling is used; i.e. LN02
- Anticipated future release of the higher clocked 2800X variant may cause buyer's remorse to those that just bought a 2700X
- Motherboard related and not really an issue of the 2700X; the X470 chipset is not really an improvement in most areas and features vs. the X370 chipset
- Best DDR4 memory speeds can only be achieved by using 2 of the 4 DIMM slots; 3666Mhz has been achieved with 2 memory sticks, but only 3200Mhz has been achieved using 4 memory sticks
- No native increase in supported PCI-E lanes (24) from the CPU (not including X470 or the upcoming Z490 chipset improvements)
Bottom line, is it worth upgrading to the 2700X? It all depends on what PC hardware you have now and how you want to spend your money. For example, if you own a GTX1060 or RX 570, a GPU upgrade will most likely give you a much better performance increase than upgrading from a 1700X to a 2700X. But, if you have a PC that's 5 years or older, I would say it might be worth upgrading if you have a need for multitasking on your computer. If you game, stream, play music, while running hardware monitoring tools all at the same time, then the 2700X is definitely for you!
My previous system was a i5 6600K @4.7Ghz, awesome build for just gaming.
Anyways, after assembling the system and powering it on for the very first time, monitor did not show anything. The system had power and all the fancy LED lights and fans were on. So what I did was swap my RAMs from A1 B1 to A2 and B2. Then the system boosted just fine! At first I thought the lastest BIOS update would fix it. But even after the latest BIOS update the system doesn't post if I install the RAMs in A1 and B1. After you move the Ram sticks to A2B2 you might want to take out the battery, disconnect the power cord and reset the CMOS by sorting the two pins.
Coming from the Intel platform I must say, the BIOS is a bit different on Ryzen. On the Skylake, I only had to adjust vcore for CPU voltage. But in Ryzen it seems there's a second voltage to look out for, SoC voltage. I manually set my voltage to 1.375 but HWinfo has shown the max it hit as 1.5v so I guess I need some more tweaking to do.
I'm using a really old Crucial 2400Mhz cl16 Ram which I bought when Intel Skylake first came out. I was able to OC it to 2700Mhz with the Intel system but couldn't do it on the Ryzen, just didn't post. Hopefully later if the Ram prices drop I would upgrade it to 3200mh c14 Ram.
After setting up the drivers I had Windows update running in background and I thought of testing out AC Origins on this system. I was gaming for a about 5 mins and notice that all fans including the CPU fan had stopped for whatever reason. And because of this the CPU temp was well over 90 degrees, so I powered it down and let it cool. After fully updating windows, I tested the game again and everything was good!
I'm going to install Adobe apps and will update more info soon.
One of most annoying issues I got is that Asus AI suite, CPU-Z and HWinfo shows completely different vcore and CPU speed readings. So I have no idea which one is right. I have yet to install Ryzen master.
Oh and right now I'm using the stock cooler that came with the 2700X and idle temps at at 43 celcius ambient at being around 24. Have to use this cooler until I get the AM4 mounts for my NH-D15.
I got the mounting kit for my Noctua NH-D15 and now my system idles at 30 celcius while being OC'ed to 4.22Ghz at 1.4v in BIOS! Huge thermal headroom compared to the stock cooler. When all cores are stressed to 100% it peaks at 60 degress! With stock cooler without OC it goes into 80s.
UPDATE 29-May-2018 OVERCLOCKING:
When i first got the CPU i found that 1.425v in BIOS with LLC on Auto gave me a rock solid 4.2Ghz OC. But then I kept seeing this strange vcore changes. At idle, the vcore stays around 1.4v to1.412v. But when I stress the CPU with any intensive task, the vcore drops and stays around 1.362v! That was weird. Less vcore with stress and more vcore when idle. lol
So what I did was after a couple of tests, I manually set my vcore in BIOS to 1.387v and LLC to 5 and now the system always at this vcore even when stressed to 100% and even in idle! NICE. I found that LLC5 was needed to keep my vcore there. When i set the LLC to 4, the vcore drops down from 1.387v to 1.362v when stressed and causes Prime95 to crash. With LLC5 it stays at 1.387v when stressed with Prime95 and I didn't even had to raise the vcore!
So in short, please don't leave the vcore and LLC on Auto. When you OC please set your LLC too.
