depends on the performance uplift, maybe

but i doubt i'll upgrade my CPU for next two generations, until DDR5 is mature

currently own a 3900x, if i were to get a cpu, maybe 8 core part, and sell the 3900x

Things I need help with:


none atm


I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general




Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite


Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares


Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend


Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)


Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)


Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I bought my CPU last year.

I'm not made of money and thus, have more sense than money.


I expect my Zen 2 CPU to last me at least 5 years.

If I get a better GPU then maybe, otherwise no. My ryzen 3 3100 is enough for now.

Waiting for Ryzen 3 5xxx. I'm really excited. I mean the 3300X is already amazing, wonder what zen 3 Ryzen 3 has to offer.

I wouldn’t think he would. He is just a moderator, the ones that know Linus are the ones that say staff team and sorts. Normally.....

I am running a Ryzen 7 3700X until it eventually meets its maker. No reason to upgrade since my PC does what I want it to do for now. I'm sure Zen 3 will be a great option for those upgrading from older (pre 2016 PCs maybe) platforms but for anyone on Zen 2, there's no reason to really upgrade unless you like shredding cash as a hobby. In that case, be my guest!

RGB is very overrated.

Yes. I'm planning on grabbing the 5800X for my system, that frees up my 3600 for my father's system. With my brother buying my 2600, (it's already in his system) and my Dad buying my 3600, (he's struggling by with a 2200G right now) it should only be $30 for me to upgrade to the 5800X.

Meh, coming from  Zen 2 it might be a decent uplift but not worth it for me. IMO if you have zen 1 it's a great upgrade, for Zen 2 users it's a luxury if you have money to spare.

Ampere is worse than Fermi, change my mind.
