If you wanted validation you probably won't get it here.


Ryzen 7 3700X would have been a better choice IMO. It uses less power and runs cooler so you don't need an aftermarket cooler if you don't have one.

As long as you've got a motherboard and video card that handle it, you'll probably enjoy it very much.

If not you can easily recoup your purchase + make some profit in the for sale section. So in that regard there are many other people still willing to pay $450 or more for one right now.

Why not use the same coupons to buy Ryzen 3000 series. So in the end you paid full price anyway for 9900K.

AM4 has finally turned into a platform that rivals both Intel's "mainstream/budget" and "HEDT".
The only downside is that the dies are binned this way: EPYC > TR > Ryzen so we get mostly scraps and best dies end up in slow clocked server parts.

Isn't everyone on this site or building their own PC going to be using aftermarket cooling? I don't even know why they include coolers with enthusiast CPUs.

I sold my Wraith Prism the week I had it , unopened. You have to factor in every user not just the ones on OCN.
2nd and 3rd gen Ryzen boost based on temperature so the better the stock cooler the better the reviews are.
