Bye bye 2920x!!!

Sorry for the title, I am just excited. For the first time in 7 years I no longer need a HEDT. I use to video edit in my spare time for a local beer company (edit trip footage, local advertising, etc). As much as I hated to let that go and the extra income, I longer had the spare time I once had. Since then I have 2 children and all my spare time goes to them.

History about my past systems. I got X99 on launch day with a 5820K. In 2015 I bought a 2680V3 to replace the 5820K. This was a bad mistake, video editing was the same as a 4.4 5820K and a 14 core Xeon clocked at 3.0 and gaming suffered. Then I bought the elusive 2696V3 18 core Haswell with a 3.8 turbo, and with the errata bug and slight bclk overclock could turbo 10 cores to 4.0. This thing was a beast and bought it so cheap before anybody knew what it was. Then somebody offered me over a grand for it and I sold it (this was before threadripper and X299). Then the last X99 CPU I bought was a 6950X. As much is I thought I wanted it I was highly disappointed, I could only overclock to 4.2 and felt like a sidegrade. Then I saw the launch of Ryzen and a few months later the Threadripper. I sold my X99/6950X combo and moved over to a X399/1920X system and pocketed 400 bucks. My 1920X was a beast, overclocked to 4.1 memory to 3333. Gaming performance was a little worse than the 6950X but for everything else it shaved mins to my workloads. Then in March got a hell of a deal on a 2920X (basically free upgrade after I sold my 1920X). Current running all core boost at 4.2 and single core boost of 4.35 and memory running at 3466 CL15. At these speeds it is a monster. To be honest I probably don't need to change but I have been itching to try something new.

So now that I no longer need the multi threaded horsepower I am looking for a change. I was originally going to get a 9900K and overclock the snot out of it (5.0+) and then I saw how close in gaming a 4.2 or 4.3 3700X can get for around 200 bucks cheaper. What would you guys get. Specs of my current rig are in my signature but the system would be paired with a RTX2080. But then there is the 3900X or a used X299 system. X299 overclocked to 4.6+ is still a beast for gaming. My buddy has a 7900X running at 4.8 and it is a beast. So decisions, like I said I know I am perfectly fine how I am but I just want to try something new.

Just wanted to hear some opinions on what you guys would do.

Current pic of my system.

If it was me I would just grab a 3900x setup. I have a 9900k and 8700k and when comparing the performance you can't really tell the difference in real world work and games.

Yeah my wife says the same. She already knows me, she says if I get a 9900K or 3700X I will just end up getting something bigger down the line even though I don't need it.

Last night the wifey gave me the go ahead to buy a RTX2080Ti. So I might scrap upgrading the CPU and going for the GPU upgrade. I game at 4k with my monitor oc'd to 75hz, 9900K is not going to boost that.

Probably for the best, no CPU is really going to help you at 4K (and even less so at 75hz)! I'd probably keep that 2920X until getting a higher refresh-rate monitor.

Hi,
Cascade-x is more affordable now days if it ever gets in stock and the gougers get done with it
10 core 10900x at just over 500.us is a lot better than your buddies 7900x

Any board really I have a cheapo asus tuf mark 2 250.us and it's quite good all my best benchmarks are logged with it 7900x and 9940x.
VRM's get a little toasty but a universal vrm water block solves that issue.
Sure don't need a 6-800.us board.

Is the 10900X and 7900X not the same clock for clock? At this point I would rather get whatever is cheaper. If I decided to go that route (2080Ti is calling my name though). I can get a 7900X and a board for right under 600. But yes I think the current Intel offerings are getting a lot of flack especially at the new price points. Like my buddies 7900X at 4.8 is a impressive chip.

Hi,
If all is true 5.0 is doable on 10900x
At this late date I'd wait on 2000 series once 3000 series drops the 2000 series should drop in price quite a bit that's what I'm waiting for anyway but then again 3000 series is supposed to be a lot better a more mature rtx instead of dying rtx 2000 series.

Guaranteed 5.0 is nice, but the 10900X retails at 600, newegg and BH selling right now for 650. Even at 600, I will still consider the 7900, currently one in eBay for 585 with the board.

The 3000 series is scheduled for mid 2020, still 6 months away. Found a RTX 2080Ti for 850, might jump on that.

Happy Thanksgiving

Just purchased the RTX 2080 TI!!!!

After waiting to see what kind of deals there would be I just pulled the trigger. 850 for a Zotac AMP is a great deal. Time to post my RTX2080 FE for sale!!! Hopefully next year there will be enough stock for both Intel and AMD they can at least be priced retail.

2080Ti is here and it's a beast.

Now I am just waiting to find a good deal (or retail price) on a 3900x or 10900X. Hopefully I can get lucky and either get a 4.4 sample 3900X or a 5.0 sample 10900x.
