Made the jump and upgraded to a 2700x (or a sidegrade depending what camp you fall in). Swapped in the following parts while holding onto the 1080ti, PSU, SSD etc... 2700X ASUS Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) TridentZ 16GB (F4-3200C14D-16GTZRX) post and runs at 3200 (not 100% sure on timings) While I would love be to praise the setup I am having some odd USB hanging isssues. But seems to be just the mouse and keyboard since my DAC/Amp & Yeti do not seem to skip a beat when USB devices hang for a second. I tried resetting windows, forcing newest AMD chipset drivers over the windows selected ones, enabling Ryzen Balances Plan, auto clocking ram, running it at 3200, 3000, forcing cpu/case fans to run a constant 70% (making sure heat is not an issue) etc... I will be upgrading my BIOS tonorrow And is issues remain reinstall Windows tomorrow to see if that helps, maybe something is borked. Either way I’ll post pictures once the new case gets and I proper attack cable management.
