Am I crazy for considering swapping my 7820X & Asus TUF 299 Mark 1 for the $500 12C24T Ryzen 3900X & new board?

The 7820X TIM limits me to around 4.6 which is still too toasty for my tastes and I’m too nervous to delid (even though I bought the delidder & LM).

The 3900X is only 105w so I’m sure it’ll run cooler...if AMD benches are to be believed the IPC will be a bit higher than the 7820X and have 4 more cores to boot. I’ll likely need new memory since mine is only 2400. Hmm.

|| 7820X @ 4.5Ghz | GTX1080Ti | TUF MARK 1 X299 | 32GB | 970 Pro 1TB | Define R4 | Air | Silent ||
