Motherboard for Ryzen 1700

Just putting together some parts for a Ryzen build. Doing it on Amazon so I can get prime 2 day shipping( want quick delivery, if anyone has used newegg premier please let me know if its good)

Question being, What are some good motherboard for the Ryzen 7 1700. I was going to go with the AsRock x370 killer but that is not on amazon. Then I was going to go with the Asus Prime x370pro but it seems to have some bad reviews.

I would like to know some decent board to OC with and that are not too expensive and what the better chipset is

    I also recommend either Asus or MSI. Too bad they haven't made any new ROG strix boards for Ryzen.

    I looked at both the ASUS Prime B350-Plus and the ASUS Prime x370-PRO, The B350 seems to have better reviews. What would you recommend out of those 2

    The X-370 Pro is mainly for higher end builds. It features 2 more SSD slots, has crossfire/sli support (multiple graphics units) and is compatible with more ram frequency types.

  16. I have the ASUS Prime X370 and it's a good board, I chose it over the MSI X370 GAMING PRO CARBON as it comes with more & better quality accessories. 4 decent quality Sata cables instead of 2 cheap looking ones, High bandwidth SLI bridge instead of a normal cheaper one etc. It also has more places to connect fans, which is very useful for me and all the fans I use.

  17. I like the Gigabyte Aorus x370 gaming 5. It has about the best memory support right now and most reviewers saying it overclock best.

    Turns out the ASUS Prime B350-Plus is the only one in stock. It's still a half decent motherboard yeah? and can overclock?

  19. More than half decent. It has great bios and overclocks easily.

  23. I would advise you not to pair the 1700 and the 1070... but if its what you want then go for it. The only reason I say that is because there is an every so slight chance that you will create a small bottleneck. Probably won't happen though, and definitely not if you go for a 1700x.
    Heres my take on your parts. Its basically the same list. In fact, I'm not even sure why I made it, but here it is.

    As I said, the chance is very low. If you OC at all, then you won't have to worry about it, 3.5 Ghz at 8 cores can take on a 1070 no sweat.
