    from completed build Sleek NR400 Build

    UPDATE 9/29/19: After MSI released the AGESA 1.0.0.3abba BIOS update for my motherboard, I'm now consistently getting advertised boost clocks on the 3700X. I haven't noticed a difference in performance when gaming or using Handbrake though, only in synthetic benchmarks do I see a slight difference. Operating temps and voltages are still a little higher compared to previous Ryzen generations, though my idle temps have dropped a bit after the most recent BIOS updates. The included Wraith Prism cooler would probably do an okay job of cooling my chip but I don't care to try it when I already have a fairly decent aftermarket air cooler.

    Just built my first computer using this processor, and it is worlds faster than anything I've ever used. I'm using it for video editing, and it lets me fly through the timeline.

    A very popular CPU at the moment and I can see why. It has a very decent price, performs amazingly. I could have gone with a 3600 but wanted this one for tasks aside from gaming.

    Holy moly. Handles every game that I've tried and renders videos nearly three times as fast as my old i7-6700k. The motherboard originally gave it 1.45V at stock which was waaay too high for me, so I dropped it by 0.025V increments and checked the Cinebench R20 scores. See one of the last photos. I settled on 1.3V with no drawback to performance at stock clocks, which range from 3.6-4.3 GHz. I decided the all-core overclock wasn't really necessary and just let it do its own thing at stock clocks.

    This thing is an absolute BEAST! It's not as hot as I thought it would be, performed really well in CPU benchmarks from 3Dmark, and I'd say this is the best CPU you can get on the market since it packs so much value at its price point.

    This was my first AMD chip, and it certainly will not be my last!

    I could easily overclock the cpu to 4.2 ghz and it was very stable, and performs very well.

    Great processor! Snagged it on launch day and it performs quite amazing in gaming / productivity workloads. It's perfect for those who need an all-rounder processor for a good price and low TDP of 65W.

    from completed build Pure Crimson - Ryzen 3000

    8 cores, 16 threads, and insane IPC, all in a 65W package. This CPU doesn't screw around.
