deskpro2k3's quick no bullshit review

I used to be sporting around an i7 6700K CPU for about 3 years now, but since 2 weeks ago all that changed with Ryzen 9 3900X.

1) Insane performance for a $500 cpu.

2) God Damn FAST

3) Wraith Prism Cooler - Let me tell you about this sexy cooler that comes bundled with the CPU.. You see this cooler, it is freakin amazing. Period. (It is so good I tossed away my water cooler)

4) 12 core 24 threads

5) Boot up time is near instant, and if you're like me and you like all things fast then take a look at my setup. With ryzen 9 together with an x570 mobo and a pcie 4.0 m.2 ssd to go along with it, it'll insure super fast load times.

I used to have an internal ssd before, and once I made the switch to pcie 4.0 I will never go back. Metro Exodus loading screen is done way before Artyom can finish his first or second sentence.

This is all you need for crazy neck breaking loading speeds. (well at least it's what I got)

cpu = ryzen 9 3900X

ram = 32gb g.skill trident z neo (Made for AMD Ryzen 3000 & X570 Platform)

mb = aorus elite x570 (x570 mobo utilizes pcie 4.0 better)

PCIe 4.0 SSD = Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 Internal SSD
