We test all Ryzen CPUs with Asus' Crosshair VI Hero along with 16GB (2 x 8GB) of Corsair 3,000MHz DDR4 Vengeance memory, which runs at 2,933MHz with the available memory divider on AM4 motherboards. At launch, this was the highest stable frequency we could obtain. We're also using an NZXT Kraken X42 cooler, as it was compatible out of the box with the universal mount on the Crosshair VI Hero, although adaptors are now available specifically for the wider AM4 mounting points.
Desktops due 'in the coming weeks'.
