    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...

    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.

    I've had a couple of USB issues happen so far:

    Both of these issues are on Windows 10 Pro 1709.

    1. A 64GB Transcend USB 3.0 flash drive randomly disconnects (with accompanying USB disconnection sound) when plugged into the front USB port on the case while copying a large amount of data from drive to system. Happens after a couple of minutes. Not sure if it's the fault of the USB drive, the internal USB cable length between front of case and plug on MB, or the MB/chipset itself. USB 2.0 flash drives (Cruzer) work fine. Don't have other USB 3.0 flash drives to test.

    2. Vice Versa 2.5 Backup software will "hang" during a large backup operation to a USB 2.0 hard drive. Need to kill the software, and restarting it and trying again results in an immediate hang again. Normal "safe eject" of USB drive results in error. Need to forceably disconnect (power off) USB drive to reset things. During hang, access to USB drive via Windows Explorer is perfectly fine both reads/writes. Same software and USB drive worked fine on old system. Vice Versa has an option to use "Windows file copy" instead of its own internal method and that appeared to work (but I only did it once). Using Windows Explorer to copy large amounts of data to same USB drive works fine. Seems to be something inside Vice Versa that interacts poorly with AMD MB USB interfaces.

    Quick update, updating the BIOS fixes the quirky keyboard and mouse issues, should have done that right at the start but... needed to read up and make sure it wasn’t going to break anything else.

    Working with a View 71, spent a chunk of the day doing cable management, would have shortened and resleaved everything but I forgot to put female terminals, cables combs and enough sleeving to complete the job. Got those on order should have them next week.

    Cpu idling seems high, but I am using the AMD provided paste and not the normal good stuff. Will be swinging by Goodwill tomorrow to remedy that.

    Things to come, working on re-activating windows and watercooling in the next 1-2 months.

    Reading the comments above, I hope there is no issues with the hardware, it only takes Newegg a month to get stuff out here.

    More to come later.

    Thanks all, working cables now, first time sleeving them so running into issues. But lessons learned.

    Will post more later once I sleeve the rest of the cables.

    I had problem with usb but it was due to a faulty usb cable since then it's been solid (gigabyte gaming 3 ab350 board). Been updating my bios to every new version tought.

    I must say, I've heard of lots of issues relating to ASUS Mobos and Ryzen.
    Me personally, I bought a ASrock x370 Killer SLI/ac at launch and haven't much issues besides the not being able to run my RAM at 2933MHz at first, but BIOS updates have fixed that.
    ASrock seems to have hit it out of the park this gen.
    Sorry, a bit off topic....

    Nice looking build! I have a friend that upgraded to the 2700x and I bought his old 1700. OC'ed it to 4GHz, wicked fast...
    Wish I had the money for a 1080ti...

    My intiial Ryzen install couldn't stay running long enough to get the updated Asmedia USB drivers installed, so it was a nearly infinite reboot cycle there in the early days. Problem was, I had a USB WIFI adapter at the time which kept causing the machine to bluescreen due to incompatibility with the stock USB drivers.
    Hasn't been an issue since April 2017.
