Do you think the asrock taichi is worth $45 over the asrock fatally k4 if I need wireless?https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813144016&cm_re=amd_x370-_-13-144-016-_-Product
Don't get it. I don't see it actually offering anything worthwhile over the Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero.
Don't expect big overclocks from Ryzen 1800X. These large CPUs traditionally have a hard time overclocking due to their heat density. 4.2Ghz should be considered a good overclock on air. And 4.4Ghz practically a miracle. High-end water might get you 4.5Ghz.
However, it should be possible to push a few cores towards 5Ghz considering it was achieved on one core already with an engineering sample on air.
