One Motherboard Maker Explains Why AMD AM4 Boards Are Missing

Re: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Overclocking – Best Ryzen Processor?

It's just because the images are larger than the width of the site. That means when I upload them to Wordpress a 3rd party utility needs to resize them down and the new smaller image it creates is sometimes blurry due to the compression.

Re: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X and 1700 Processor Review

It seems there is not much room for overclocking, as AMD pushed their new CPU's pretty much to the limit, so this should also be considered, as intels are good OC'ers. Yup, why I left the Intel Core i7-7700K in there at 5.1GHz. I just put up an article with Ryzen 7 at 4.0 GHz on all cores - http://...

I also can see retailers raising the price if the pre-orders go gangbuster due to the pricing. Hardest part is having all the numbers...
