While it would be nice to be able to filter through successful builds of forum members, you probably won't find anyone willing to go through all the trouble of collecting and parsing that data.I was thinking more like a properly filtered configurator so forum users (and maybe even general anandtech browsers) could downselect a configuration that forum users know works based on their own experience (and with I suppose some notes on stability, performance using a consistent selection of opensauce/freeware benchmarks, power consumption etc).
If you want to see successful builds, the best thread is probably the Ryzen OC thread:
Only 10 pages long, with lots of builds + results posted therein.
If you are seriously looking for the cheapest Ryzen R7 build that will definitely work, try R7 1700 + ASRock B350 Pro4 + either DDR4-3200 CAS/CL14 or basically any DDR4-3600 on the market. So option #1:
When picking the 3200 option, make sure it's 14s across the board. With 3600 it doesn't matter since it's all b-die no matter what. There are some 3466 kits that are b-die but you have to shop carefully, and of course CAS/CL 15 and 16 kits of 3200 may not be b-die at all . . .
Oh and if you want 32GB of RAM, you CAN get away with this:
though most would point you towards the CAS/CL 14 Trident Z instead. But any Corsair DDR4 that says "ver 4.31" on the back is b-die.
