Planning on upgrading to Ryzen 3000 series. On C6H X370. Options?
As title says I'm planning on upgrading to the Ryzen 3000 series. However I don't have the money to buy both an X570 board and a Ryzen 7 CPU at least for a while. So I'm gonna have to stick it out with my C6H. My upgrade budget is about $400. Maybe $500 if I eat ramen and PB&J sandwiches for a couple weeks.
A pipe dream for me would be the 3900X, but I probably won't have enough for it and idk if my C6H will be able to support it well or not. So I'm looking into the 3800X, as I want the higher clocks and boosts as compared to the 3700X. I do some content creation tasks, some coding, and I occasionally stream so I want to stick with at least the 8 core SKUs if at all possible.
What are my prospects for my upgrade? How well would you think the C6H be able to handle the 3900X?
