First up, props to Datablitz who delivered my processor just a few hours after I ordered it. (ordered 11am, received 2pm)
When I put together this gaming rig, I was so elated because it took almost a year of planning and saving because the total cost of the whole thing was more than I was planning to spend for a desktop. But in the end, after testing its performance with the games I usually play, I am glad to say that I can play all the AAA games at ULTRA settings without any problems. The CPU maxes out at 30+ % utilization so its not working too hard and combined with an AIO, the temps never go higher than 60 degrees Celsius (I tried this using a CPU stress test which made the CPU run at 100% for several minutes) No thermal throttling was observed.
For those wanting the best bang for buck processor which AMD can offer as of this time, this is the processor to get. I am sure this will provide many years of gaming. (I am upgrading from a i7-4790K which was the best processor back in the day so imagine what a good investment that was, which was why it was a no-brainer to get the Ryzen 7 7800X3D)
