Instead of chatting in other threads like Broadwell-E, I thought I'd start a thread where everything can be put.

Myself I'm looking at getting the 7820x, still undecided on motherboard though.
I was looking at the Strix, but the current reviews aren't promising, same with the Prime Deluxe.

And yet MSI are leading the pack with the Carbon Pro's benchmark performances.

A few reviews:
7900x
http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/intel-core-i9-7900x-processor-review,1.html
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-core-i9-7900x-skylake-x,5092.html
https://youtu.be/Ff1wWs_pREo
https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/intel_i9_7900x_skylake-x_review/1

Motherboards:
http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/asus-x299-prime-deluxe-review,1.html
http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/msi-x299-gaming-pro-carbon-ac-review,1.html
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/asus-prime-x299-deluxe-motherboard,5095.html

The one thing I love seeing is how the 7800x, 7820x and 7900x are killing the current top tier Ryzen 7 CPU's.

But it seems everyone agrees that Intel did rush this launch a little.. wink.gif

Preordered 7740x and going with rampage apex when that's avaialable. Every intention on upgrading at least to the 12. a lot of people saying it was rushed due to ryzen. But I'm not so sure this pic is from a year and a half ago. Seems to be right on time. Other thread got cleaned ? lachen.gif

I wanted to preorder a CPU but none of the motherboards I'm considering is going to be released yet. I'm looking at EVGA dark and RVIE or Apex.

Same thing I'm running into. I want the RVIE or the Apex. I hate when I'm willing to hand my money over, but have to wait for availability.

I'm looking for longevity and reliability.
Been through 3 systems in at months where my wife is still on her 4790k bought from release.

The 5820k/MSI Gaming 7 I bought was flaky and a poor overclocker.
The 6900k/Strix kept killing itself and the 7700k I have now just doesn't have the grunt I'm used to since running HEDT machine.. biggrin.gif

I had planned on keeping the 6900k but when 3 CPU's and 3 Strix's died one after another I gave up on x99.
