    Ryzen 5 2600X
    • The Ryzen 5 2600X has higher Level 2 Cache. Data/instructions which have to be processed can be loaded from the fast L2 and the CPU does not have to wait for the very slow DDR RAM
    • The Ryzen 5 2600X has higher Level 3 Cache. This is useful when you have substantial multiprocessing workloads, many computationally intense simultaneous processes. More likely on a server, less on a personally used computer for interactive desktop workloads.
    • For some games, a cpu with a higher clock speed, or in a technical name IPC (Instructions per clock), has better results than other CPU's with higher core count and lower core speed.
    • The Ryzen 5 2600X is more power efficient and generates less heat.
    • The Ryzen 5 2600X has a higher turbo clock boost. Turbo Boost is a CPU feature that will run CPU clock speed faster than its base clock, if certain conditions are present. It will enable older software that runs on fewer cores, to perform better on newer hardware. Since games are software too, it is also applicable to them.
    • The Ryzen 5 2600X has a smaller process size. The faster a transistor can toggle on and off, the faster it can do work. And transistors that turn on and off with less energy are more efficient, reducing the operating power, or “dynamic power consumption,” required by a processor.

    Wait for the more powerful 6c/12t 8700k coming out sometime around next month. It will be better than both.

    Thermal Paste Configuration for i7-7800X CPU
    Built my first PC over a few weeks ago now but due to a few errors on my behalf I had some problems with mounting the H110i Liquid Cooler resulting in the pre-applied thermal paste just slightly coming away around the edges of the heatsink. My temps are steady at 40°c-45°c when idle (CAM and ASUS' Thermal Radar sometimes differ on temps) which isn't BAD but it isn't exactly good either so I have bought some Arctic MX-4 Thermal Paste which I am planning on using once it arrives to lower my temps even more. I know the procedure of cleaning the CPU etc, but I wanted to know the best method of applying the thermal paste (pea, line, X, etc) - I've heard conflicting things about how it depends on the type of CPU (mine is stated in the title) and the type of paste used so I wanted a straight answer.

    The method I use is putting about a grain of rice amount of thermal paste on the CPU then spreading it evenly & as thin as possible over the CPU with a flexible card such as a credit or store card. It may take a few tries to get it right but I find it more effective then the line or X application.

    I7 7800x for Gaming
    I bought a gaming PC about a year ago form Ibuypower. It has an i7 7800x CPU, 16 gigs of memory and a 1080 (non Ti) GPU. I has been great running a 144hz 1440 monitor for gaming.

    I just preloaded Fallout 76 and the system spec checker says I am good to go except the CPU, it is unsure about it. I asked in the game's forum and was told the game just isn't aware of that CPU and it is "rare" in the gaming world a "waste" for gaming but it should be fine.

    This got me to thinking, even if the extra cores are a waste, is the processor slow in terms of current offerings? Is it hurting my game performance and worth considering an upgrade?

    The 7800x fits in for a mixed gaming productivity build with the extra PCIe lanes..If you are only using the build for gaming, then yes it loses just a little to the top gaming CPU's like the 8700K, 9700K and 9900K.

    I still say at the resolution you are playing at, 1440p, it is more than good enough and a upgrade to a 1080ti/2080 would be the much better bet, than a wholesale change to the Z390 and 8700K or 9900K side as your GPU is the biggest factor in play at the moment...

    Sell the 1080 and upgrade to a second hand 1080ti or to a new 2080/2080ti...though the 2080 series is so absurdly priced.

    AMD Ryzen 1800x or Intel i7-7800X?
    So I've finally narrowed it down to two CPUs...AMD Ryzen 1800x or Intel i7-7800X.

    I am going to be using the computer mainly for heavy live streaming and video rendering and playing some of the latest games as well.

    Which CPU do you think is better between the two?

    Thanks for your help again!

    The 1800X is cheaper and will do all those taskes like video rendering and live stream encoding just as well as the 7800X. Because Intel is still king from gaming, you may see a slight increase with the 7800X over AMD 1800X. It will be game dependent and probably not noticeable outside of benchmarks.

    For someone on a budget the 1800X wins, However the 2066 has a lot more CPUs that you can upgrade to down the line if that is a thing you want to do. the Ryzen AM4 socket is maxed out with a 1800X. You will need a new MB for AM4+ in the future.

    Motherboard for Intel
    I am building a PC mainly for video editing and some pc gaming.
    What motherboard would pair well with a Intel - Core i7-7800X. Also is that a good CPU for such a build. No MSI please

    Upgrade from i5-3570k to i7-7800X
    I am wondering what everyone thinks the benefit will be for upgrading. I currently have a i5-3570k CPU on an Asus Maximus V Formula (z77) with a 1080 Ti. I would need to upgrade the CPU, Ram, and Mobo, at least.

    Would I see a real benefit?
