    from completed build 3800X2080

    So far it's performing as expected with boost clocks reaching 4.4Ghz. The upgraded on board memory controller also made my 32GB 3200Mhz RAM plug and play.

    I love this thing. The non-x version is really the best bang for buck I think but I went with the 3600x so I didn't have to mess with overclocking. Maybe I'm getting lazy in my old age. Anyhow, the speed improvement is perceptible coming from a 1600x. Don't take my word for it. Just look at all the benchmarks. If you're looking to upgrade but also don't want to splurge, I say the 3600 would probably be better. I don't think the x is giving you $50 worth of performance over the 3600.

    Runs like a champ in Cinebench and 3DMark and I'm sure it'll crush any games I throw at it. Happy to get the new 7nm process as well as 6 cores and 12 threads, and is a much better buy then what I was going to go with (an i7-9700k).
