Plenty of Power to go around. 5/27/2020 2:56:37 PM

Pros: With a combined total of 32 cores including hyperthreading, there's plenty to go around for demanding tasks. I personally use this for virtualization and gaming, and I have yet to max it out. I personally haven't tried overclocking, but honestly, wit this many cores all running at a reasonable speed, I don't really see a reason to.

Cons: I have noticed this CPU is a little power-hungry, and my complete system powered up and idle uses around 150 watts of power. But also keep in mind I'm running water cooling and an NVIDIA 1080ti. It also tends to run a little hot when stressed.

Overall Review: Overall I would definitely recommend this to someone that needs some horsepower for their workloads. Even though I bought this CPU going on 3 years ago, it still serves me well and doesn't slow me down.

Music production and gaming 9/25/2019 10:21:14 PM

Pros: This thing is great for music production. I can have lots of plugins going in my DAW with no latency issues for my sound interface. I also game on it and game in VR with the valve index. Its paired with a 2080ti and all is right in the world!

Cons: None

Overall Review: I love it. Works great for my use case and have not seen temp issues others have described. My temps are well under control via Corsair 360 AIO cooler

Did Exactly What I Wanted! 4/14/2019 6:18:52 AM

Pros: Delid and Relid process is easy for this processor. Powerful and with the proper nerdism you can achieve much cooler temperatures. I bought a pure copper IHS from Poland to relid with, I also used liquid metal. I can overclock the chip I received to 5Ghz, but run it normally around 4.5 Ghz. No crashes, no problems, amazingly fast.

Cons: None, I knew what I wanted and how I wanted to orchestrate the overclock and cooling.

Overall Review: I would recommend this to other geeks and nerds that are willing to go the extra mile to achieve something interesting and great in a build.

Works Decently! 3/18/2019 1:56:34 PM

Pros: Fast! Overclockable! Had 0 issues!

Cons: I wish The rendering wasn't so terrible, but that is a dynamic issue. Also isn't what I bought the CPU for.

Overall Review: Still figuring a bunch of stuff out as my build is still new. As far as this CPU goes I am very happy and glad I bought it.
