I'd hold out for better timings. From what I'm reading, X570 is now able to do nice tight CL14 level timings at 3600mhz. Unless you're *really* cash-strapped, I'd be looking for 3200CL14 at a minimum. Not sure how much the future will change this, but it also appears going over 3600mhz, and using an infinity fabric clock that ISN'T 1 to 1, you take a performance hit. Apparently having a 1:1 clock ratio at 3600 *appears* to be the sweet spot and offers the best memory performance.

Obviously that might change in the future as BIOSes mature, but after owning both Ryzen generations, tight timings are a must. They have a big impact on overall CPU performance.
