    "Love it...Great CPU...I upgraded from a 4th gen i7 so this was a huge upgrade as is but the 8 cores has offered much power and quality of life with my multi-tasking and audio rendering habits, as well as chugging out my games on extreme settings 1080p 144hz, leaving my 970 to be the apparent bottleneck....I can say that the system is ridiculous paired with 2 x 8GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 (needs to be set to 3200 in the BIOS), Samsung 970 EVO 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD, and XFX RX580 Black Edition OC+ 8GB GPU."
