Takes a little getting used too 5/26/2020 7:11:10 PM

Pros: Super powerful.
Inexpensive compared to performance.
Compatible with my music production and video editing software.
Bundled fan is just fine for cooling, looks great, and comes with thermal paste pre-installed.

Cons: Can really heat up if you're not using a good case, good fans, and being smart about your power management.

Overall Review: It's no secret the chip can get hot.
To decrease this issue I did the following things:

Bought a very strong power supply so it never over draws juice (EVGA 750w gold)

Bought a motherboard with plenty of built in heatsinks and fan connectors (msi 570 unify)

A case with great airflow that came with fans (fractal meshify c)

Some extra fans (Corsair fans that light up blue, to calm down the processor)

Set my large fans (140mm) at top of case by CPU fan to pull hot air out and away as fast as I can.

Finally (if you want to keep idle temps in the 30's and mild working temps in the 40's) then go into your power plan settings in windows and set the minimum CPU power draw to 1-3% and the maximum to 99%. This prevents the darn thing from "power boosting" and jumping up and down 10 degrees in temp as so many people report.

Overall? Yes ,I highly recommend this chip. It does need a little tlc to get up and going, but once it does it is a beast.

I can just chew through music production and video editing with this thing. Heck, my old laptop would buckle, scratch, and pop if I loaded too many plug-ins into my saw (mixcraft 9), but this thing can run 30 tracks with reverbs, compressord, eqs and only hit 1-3% CPU usage.

Just insane.

Also, the included fan is just fine, you don't need anything better. If you buy expensive cooling and do all the things I recommend, you maybe save a few degrees of temp, so not with it.

Plus, included cooler looks really cool with rgb

A truly powerful upgrade 5/26/2020 1:59:28 PM

Overall Review: I was very on the fence about upgrading and people kept saying I would not notice a big diff in gaming over my old cpu i7(4790K). I get higher frames in every game. I was also able to ditch my dual pc set up for streaming this chip handles gaming and obs perfectly without having to sacrifice settings. Definitely was a worth while upgrade.

Be careful taking out cpu 5/26/2020 12:14:44 PM

Cons: The packaging is awful. The cpu encased in plastic slid right out of the box and fell onto the floor. User error? Probably. But with the importance of this particular item, it should be more securely fastened inside the box.

Overall Review: Minus the packaging, its a very good cpu.

big upgrade from i7 6700k 5/26/2020 10:33:04 AM

Pros: lots of cores lots of power

Cons: gotta be careful with the configuration to make this cpu stable

Overall Review: overall this is a good upgrade from the i7 6700k, the 3700x is more power efficient and handles games and workloads better than the 6700k. strongly recommend pairing with noctua nh u12a cooler and g skillz trident z ram, and x570 motherboard

Pros: 8 cores
Good speed

Cons: None

Overall Review: I am switching over from a older intel 2500k (2nd? gen core i5) and am blown away by the performance. Temps are around 40-50C with a 240mm AIO depending on game loads. Just awesome!
