Ryzen has had its share of teething problems. I've heard about the struggles that some have had to get their memory clocking fast, and indeed I had to put a little work in too.
For reasons that elude me, my motherboard cannot automatically determine the timings of my RAM unless I set the BIOS to XMP mode. The defaults it comes up with prevent the system from going above the BIOS default RAM frequency of 2133 MHz. However, the XMP mode would run the RAM at the maximum rated speed (3200 MHz) which the system isn't capable of. Based on what I've read, this is a common issue and most people can't quite reach 3200 MHz, settling for 2933 MHz.
In order to get my RAM ticking away even slightly faster than 2133 MHz, I had to do the following in the BIOS:
(1) Forced the RAM voltage to the rated voltage (in my case 1.35V; the BIOS was trying to default it to 1.2V)
(2) Manually set the RAM timings (the BIOS also defaulted these wrong; note that the XMP BIOS feature will probably tell you your RAM's timings on-screen, plus it's printed on the RAM itself)
(3) Incrementally tried each faster RAM speed until the system became unstable (I couldn't go above 2933 MHz)
I tested my memory stability using the memtest86 tool. If a certain RAM speed could survive a whole pass without throwing errors I deemed it stable, though arguably it should be run for much longer (overnight perhaps). Prime95 is another stability testing tool that I would recommend.
My first impression with regards to temperatures was worrying; I noticed the CPU running much hotter than I would have expected given its TDP, but then I noticed an AMD community article about how the Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X have their temperatures offset by 20 degrees (why this is, I don't understand). The Ryzen Master software gives you the correct temperature; with other temperature software you will need to do the subtraction yourself. The maximum I've been able to hit is about 58 degrees Celsius with Prime95; pretty impressive.
I've seen a lot of benchmarks from big YouTube tech channels that paint the 1800X as very hot; I suspect they didn't know about the temperature offset. AMD really did mess that one up; had they been more proactive in telling people about it, or not adding an offset at all, it would have made Ryzen seem more appealing, I think.
If you prefer to use a balanced power mode on Windows, know that there is one specifically written for the Ryzen CPUs that you can download from the AMD community website.
I neglected to do many benchmarks to determine an actual difference to me, but others have done benchmarks that show that while the 1800X is not the fastest CPU, it is fast and great value. It did occur to me to check single-threaded performance; this CPU isn't close to the Intel i7-7700K which holds the crown at time of writing, but I felt that double the cores and great value made the 1800X a better choice going into the future.
Something that surprised me is that the 1800X and, perhaps more importantly the motherboard, work with Linux (Fedora 25) out of the box, despite being so new!
I'm glad that there is competition in the CPU market once again; everyone benefits and I'm looking forward to seeing what AMD and Intel will do in the next couple of years.
EDIT: it's worth pointing out, since many don't, that setting your memory frequency above 2666 MHz when using this CPU is an *overclock*, which apparently voids your CPU warranty (even if your memory is capable of going faster, as is true in my case). Just something to bear in mind! Be sure to look up the maximum supported memory frequency on your CPU's specification.
I picked the 1800X on the theory its better quality silicon and prefer to stick near the official clock speed for reliability.
The high thread count really comes into it's own for work. As a developer running lots of tasks locally, using docker etc, a higher thread count is ideal.
I switched from Xeon to Ryzen and have noticed no difference in reliability and no issues with compatibility. The only thing around that's any better is Threadripper which is so much more money and is 2 of these stuck together and do you REALLY need THAT many threads?
It has eaten through everything I have thrown at it.
