I have a x370 fatality professional gaming motherboard with a ryzen 1700, and currently running 3000mhz memory...

I would like to upgrade to a ryzen 3000 series cpu, what should I be considering.. I'm either looking at the 3700x or 3800x when its available, are these viable choices for the x370?

The memory I'm currently running is 3000mhz and would like to get up to 3200mhz memory, I dont want to use the higher priced flare-x memory, simply because its overpriced.. What other 3200mhz memory would be a good choice for my motherboard?

If you want to update with a 3000 CPU, wait for a bios with ComboAM4
1.0.0.3 or higher.
And with your Ryzen 1700, don't go higher as 5.10, better stay with 3.10

Lousy memory support on this board?
It is just the same as with every Ryzen board!
You will not get high and stable RAM clocks out of the box.

A good place for infos (Taichi is almost the same as the Fatality x370 Professional Gaming):

do NOT even try to boot Ryzen 3000 on current older generation boards without a AGESA 1.0.0.3 update with memory clocks any higher than 2133MHz. It won't even POST -- even if your memory works at 2400MHz out-of-the-box without XMP.

I see the 1003a/b bios is out for the Taichi, but not for Asrock's FLAGSHIP x370 board the Fatality X370 Professional Gaming..

plus Asrock has the 3800x listed as compatible with the x370 professional gaming..

Is this just Asrock being lazy or slow?

@brucer:
Because there are much more Taichi X370 user, they (only) get the beta bios versions (or even ealier)...

and that is why I'll never buy another asrock product.. their bios revisions are the slowest in the industry.. Ridiculous for the top tier x370 board.
