Great! 7/13/2020 11:32:32 AM

Overall Review: Coming from a FX chip to this is complete night and day. Very happy... just hope I don’t have to submit a bunch of info several years from now to get a measly 33.00 out of a class action lawsuit because they lied about the core count again.

Solid CPU 7/13/2020 9:26:50 AM

Pros: - Can handle pretty much anything I throw at it.
- Dramatically sped up pretty much everything on my PC
- Gaming-wise I have yet to find anything it struggles with
- Not the biggest on RGB, but the cooler it comes with has a nice RGB system that lets you sync it up to either the AMD software or your MB. Plus its quiet

Cons: - Gets hot. Like REALLY hot. Definitely, look into alternative cooling options beyond the stock cooler. Probably would anyway, but I wanted to save for something good and have been running it with the stock cooler. The cpu hit 95 c not overclocked a couple times while gaming. Though normally it tends to hang out around 65-75 under load.

- Jumping off the first con, the cooler is only alright. For the most part it does the job but for extended periods of time or cpu intensive work/games, it will struggle to keep temps low.

Overall Review: I would definitely get this CPU! Its completely turned my whole system around for the better. With the new XTs coming out (and the benchmarks seeming marginal) the savings you'll likely get to performance is more than worth getting this. If you're looking at this, you're probably going to get an aftermarket cooler regardless so the stock cooler drawbacks and high CPU temps are (hopefully) a non-issue for you. However, if you're thinking the stock fan will get you by, be weary depending on what you're doing. While playing AC: Odyssey my machine shut down do to high temps on the CPU. Its only happened once and I've played the game plenty before that, but I'm going to wait for the cooler to get here before I continue playing that.

This processor is a beast!! 7/12/2020 11:34:13 PM

Pros: - Lots of cores/cache is great for virtualization
- Handles gaming just fine at stock clocks
- Power efficient and doesn't generate much heat under heavy load
- Gen4 lanes for faster nvme
- Fantastic value given the performance to price

Overall Review: My use-cases are 80% virtualization and 20% gaming. The R9-3900X crushes both with ease. Previous machine was an R7-1700 and the speed increase to the R9-3900X in both single-core and multi-core performance is very noticeable. Absolutely amazing processor that beats the team blue competition by miles for virtualization. Gen4 lane for compatible nvme's is worth it for virtualization workloads.
