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

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.

Pre-ordered a 7820x and Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7. Hopefully they will be here by next Wednesday. The rest of the build is in the sig rig.

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.
