Great work horse that doesn't horse around. 9/11/2020 10:21:12 PM

Pros: Reliable, fast, reasonably priced for its performance.

Cons: It's prettier than me (lol)

Overall Review: Very impressive component. I do some heavy composing work, analytics work and sometimes video renders. My 8 year old rig couldn't keep up. Built a new one with this CPU and it doesn't miss a beat. Running it with MSI x299 Pro mobo and 128 GB, 1300 W PSU, liquid cooler. Talk about an improvement to overall time management. And listen, I know the kids like the i9 10900k for gaming and overclocking etc., I've seen the benchmarks versus the 10900x "oh it's just an improved 9900k" FOLKS...get this CPU and it'll get business done. Simple as that. Yes, I recommend a liquid cooler.

VERY good upgrade for my composing music computer 7/28/2020 8:21:14 PM

Pros: I run 4 computers networked at once for doing orchestral composition. The main machine was getting very old, an i7 3770k. This new i9 10900x cpu gives me about 2.25 - 2.75 times the capacity of the old one. Heat wise, this is doing very well so far. My sessions were designed around the old computer and are only pushing this one half as much. I altered my rack case to make room for the Noctua NH-D15, 140mm dual-tower CPU cooler. I'm at 47-50 Celsius when running at 26% cpu usage. I'll need to check with prime95 and report back on useful heat numbers

Cons: So far no cons to report

Overall Review: I would recommend this cpu composers and music producers that need a lot of power.

Recommended processor 4/22/2020 8:46:14 PM

Pros: This is a recommended processor to pair with the ASUS Prime X299-A II. It is easily overclock-able though I would recommend pairing it with a liquid cooler of some sort as it produces a lot of heat.

Cons: None as of yet.

Overall Review: This has been stable during gaming.

Nice upgrade 1/4/2020 11:50:14 PM

Overall Review: I’ve been using virtualization more heavily and my 8-year old 4-core i7 wasn’t cutting it anymore. Time for a new PC. I wanted the new 16-core version i9 but couldn’t get my hands on one. Turns out this 10-core processor is doing fine. VMware Workstation can still use 16 virtual processors due to hyper-threading and 64GB RAM. (I have 128GB) I’ve got adequate cooling and power to overclock but I don’t. It performs fine for my needs at rated speeds and runs reasonably cool and rock-solid stable even when pushed to the max on all cores. This new PC is a great productivity boost and I’m glad that Intel is making them more affordable because this is a big investment for me. Very happy with this my new PC.

Fast , easy 5ghz but hot 12/28/2019 12:59:41 PM

Pros: Fast cpu (duh) with fast memory OC at 3200mhz default , it should OC even more when the microcode bios is out next week

Cons: Hot , i have it under 360rad in open loop and i see it reaching 85c under full load while OC 5ghz (4 cores while the rest 4.6 ) , light to kinda heavy gaming situations should be easy to handle temps-wise , Ryzen can offer better value at cheaper prices

Overall Review: From Qatar and got this one 2 weeks ago by luck :p
