What spec system was you running before jumping to the 3900X? Do you notice any major differences? Currently running an i7 3770 with 32GB RAM and a Samsung EVO SSD which tends to run fine for whatI do (trying to figure out what I do) - system is getting quite old (2012 maybe?)
I do some video encoding for the YouTube stuff but generally don’t sit watching it encode anyway, don’t really run any VMs as I have dedicated kit for that.
Trying to get encouragement to upgrade to 3900X, other than the age of the i7 3770. The wife is getting on a bit but I haven’t looked at changing her yet, she pretty much okay for most of the things I use her for too.
Have heard some issues about heat, you experience any heat issues (with the CPU not the wife)? Probably not in that huge ass case you have?
Glad you went with the upgrade?
