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?
Yeah I pointed this out in another thread. The 3800X seems like poor value (relative to other offerings) given the very modest increases for the price differential but it'll all depend on benchmarks/etc. I also don't really see anyone needing the 3900X 12c/24t SKU for gaming any time soon so I'm going to be sticking with the 8c/16t SKUs.
Either way though more choice is a good problem to have. Frankly at the resolutions I game at leave me more GPU bottlenecked than anything else but I just like to upgrade once in awhile This comment was edited on Jun 12, 2019, 09:59.
