Why the 3700x and not the 3800x, inquiring minds and all that.
40 extra TDP on the 3800X for a meager 300Mhz gain on the base frequency and 100Mhz on the max boost.
I'd prefer to run my machine as cool and quiet as possible, thus the 3700X.
I've always run Crucial or Corsair memory as those are brands I know and trust. How does G.SKILL compare?
I had GSkill in my machine. It ran 24/7 basically. After about 5 years one of the memory sticks went bad, but was covered under lifetime warranty. It took 6 weeks to get my stick, and I had to harass them a bunch.
