    This was my first AMD processor since my first build 18 years ago, great product, the fan that comes with it is incredible and you can overclock a bit without the need of a water-cooled, I am getting one later tho. Just pay attention on your motherboard, I had one brand new but it was ready for Gen2 Ryzen not Gen3, so just pay attention when getting a new motherboard.

    I upgraded from the Ryzen 7 2700 and I’m glad I did. The 3800x paired with a 2070 super I can reach high frame rates for my 240 hz monitor while streaming at the same time! Not AAA titles but Apex Legends or Fortnite. I also do light video editing for YouTube and it edits videos great. Check out my YouTube @ Dr Sabbatical or my Twitch twitch.tv/DrSabbatical if you have any questions. Definitely worth the buy!

    I am super pleased with this processor coming from an 8350 to this one. Runs fantastic and the cooling option it comes with seems to keep it reasonably cool.

    Pros mentioned:
    Performance, Price

    I was flip-flopping on the 3700X and the 3900X one being inexpensive and the other one being just a tad too expensive for my budget. I saw the 3800X on a heck of a sale and that made my decision for me. Yes the 3900X is better in almost every way and the 3700X can be overclocked to just about 3800X performance but at the price point the sale offered...? SOLD! I put it on a MSI X570 Gaming Edge w/Wi-fi and used a Corsair H100i. I have had absolutely no problem with heat dissipation. I have heard people argue to either get the 3700X or just pay the money and take the performance gains offered the 3900X. But the 3800X met my needs for this build.

    Pros mentioned:
    For games

    I was hesitant about making the move over to AMD, especially since I was wanting to switch over to the 3900x. However I could not find it in stock anywhere in my state and I had planned on returning this for the 3900x after ordering it online and receiving it. If I were Intel, I'd be very very concerned. absolutely destroys the 9700k I replaced in every aspect outside of gaming. Now even gaming numbers are not that much better on the 9700k. Because I stream and am a content creator, this is the obvious choice. I tried the 5700xt when it first came out and had to return it when the driver problems were too much to deal with. Which is why i was so apprehensive about making the switch. Apparently AMD has since fixed those driver bugs, but I'm still team Nvidia until AMD can come out with a card that can compare to Nvidia's top of the line cards. But their processors are a completely different story. If you were like me and pondering whether to pull the trigger and make the switch or not, take my advice and just do it.

    For games

    Chose this CPU for a recent gaming PC build and am very happy with the result. I could have splurged on a GPU or a CPU and I chose a lower end GPU for now. The Wraith Prism RGB fan is icing on the cake and goes well with the rest of the hardware. Had a bit of trouble attaching the HUGE RGB cooler to the processor but, you really do have to turn the knob THAT hard to set the cooler in place. Thank goodness it came with thermal compound pre-applied as this was my first time installing a CPU into a motherboard, future-proof enough for me at this time. Traded in a 2016 era gaming laptop for this puppy and would do it again with Best Buy making trade-ins so simple.

    I upgraded from Ryzen 5 3600, and oh man! What a good choice I made. This might be the best CPU I’ve had in my 20+ years of working with PCs. I game on a 1440p 165hz Omen Gaming Monitor, I also do professional Music Production mostly on Pro Tools, and I do Video & Photo editing on Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Lightroom. This CPU can handle basically anything I throw at it. Pair it with 16 or 32GB of fast RAM and you’re good for a long time.

    Background (nothing to do with the product, some background info/rant): I bought a Mini itx B550 motherboard to build a new computer, not realizing that the B550 Chipset does not support the 3400G APUs (I don't know if this varies between motherboard brands but AMD does not officially support the 3400G with that chipset, X570 chipset DOES support them). Bad decision in my opinion since 4th gen APUS have not been released to replace them (they will get released but as of writing this, there is no date). Product: Went to Bestbuy and was happy they stock these so I could get my computer working (had to buy a video card also). Like other AMD cpus I have used, it works great and comes with a colorful CPU fan and wires to attach it to a USB 2 header and JRainbow connector (at least that it what it is called on my motherboard).

    I haven't built a PC in 20 years, I'm amazed at how much easier it has gotten and how incredible AMD has become over this time frame. This CPU was an incredible bargain on sale during the 2020 Holidays. It's up and running with the Wraith Prism cooler that looks great in my RGB Chassis. Interesting to note the Wraith Prism cooler has support for both RGB sync from the motherboard (+5v only) AND a direct connection to a motherboard USB 9 Pin for even more control over the lighting effects using software from Cooler Master. Very fun!

    I was looking to upgrade my gaming rig to a better processor with more cores than my old 4 core i7 7700k and was pretty upset to find out that with Intel chips you have to get a new motherboard. Ask the guys at best buy and was introduced to amd more cores the motherboard I got would support not only my ryzen 7 3800x but i could upgrade to the 3900x or 3950 and if needed i can use the 2700 on the board. So far this processor has been phenomenal I use a corsair dual fan water cooler and my cpu under heavy loads stays at 40 to 50 degrees max couldn't be more happier.

    Caught this on a pretty good sale and it’s been incredible s far. I’m no longer being bottlenecked by my cpu when I’m gaming. And it doesn’t get nearly as hot as my previous cpu did. Only issue was the first one came with a couple bent pins, but Bestbuy exchanged it no problem.
