Am I missing something?

Now I'm in the process of doing a pretty detailed Ryzen build, full watercooled, with many different things that I would do on both Intel or Amd.

Now I'm not doing a budget build, also I'm not overly concerned by the price to achieve the aesthetic that I am after. But would I buy a £600 board for AM4? Juts no!

Now with Intel, the OC ability is highly dependent on the board chosen. As we have already seen, AM4 clocks the same on a £300 board as it does on a £100 board.

Asus do the Crosshair at £250, that itself is an expensive board for AM4. If you want to spend money for the sake of telling people how expensive your build was, then go Intel and ensure all components are of other overpriced varieties.

There just is no market for that price range in the AM4 ecosystem at the moment!

Let me go and buy a Ryzen 1700 for 1/3 the price of the Intel counterpart. I know ! I will spend £600 on a motherboard for it !

/sarcasm.
