i7-4970k :p

Your Intel CPU is still very relevant in gaming today. I think changing it to R5 1600 would be a downgrade for gaming if you do not use any productivity softwares.




If you do not overclock or use SLI, X370 is pointless. Go for Asus B350-Plus, really great Mobo.

For memory, Motherboard manufacturers will always provide Memory QvL lists where by you can identify compatible memory easily. Example, Asus B350-Plus Memory QvL PDF

Most RAMs should reach rated speeds with the latest BIOS updates so do not worry. Fairly Plug and Play.
My current system showing its age abit and thought of changing up to include new ddr4 rams.
