"I've been using this processor for a little over a month and I'm very impressed with the performance. I previously owned an i7 5820k OC'd @4.6 and I was happy but when I saw the price point for this and all that the processor offers I wanted to give it a try. After a quick bios update I wanted to see if I could get any overclocking done and I was able to hit 4.0 @ 1.325 volts and still get very good temperatures. Idle at 27c and at load the max temperature seen was 49.5c monitoring through Ryzen Master. I saw an immediate performance gain over my 5820k in the render times and overall gaming performance. I'm very pleased with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone shopping for a processor," said one reviewer. More information.
