    Well, replaced my 2700X with a 3800x, the wrong processor I know, but it's fine in everything... a good match with my GTX1080ti at 1440p... and an upgrade path.

    Awesome. The 3700X is a workhorse, it tears through my compile tasks at a pace that is just bonkers.

    I would like to get one at the office instead of the desktop replacement i7 laptop.

    Fitted an R7 2700 in august 18. Fast, as stable as a tripod and easy on the leccy. What more can you want for reasonable money?

    Replaced my mum's old Intel i5 750 system with a newer Ryzen 2200G last year, I'm honestly impressed at just how capable it is for a 4/8 part. The only quirk I found was installing the cpu cooler on the AM4 platform is worse than the Intel cpu cooler installation, found it much more fiddly.

    Not too bad, but I wish she'd stop leaving the toilet seat down.

    Upgraded from Intel pentium g4600 to 2200G.

    Great bang for the buck !!

    Though I must say that the CPU sticks too much to the paste from the CPU fan - so when trying to unmount the loud CPU fan, I ripped off the CPU at the same time, even releasing the safety CPU pins.

    Performance is great, though I need even more GPU power / and a more silent CPU fan.

    I'm running a 1600X for just under 2 years and no complaints, been looking at the Ryzen 7's as a possible upgrade next year.

    Re: QOTW: How are you getting on with your AMD Ryzen processor?

    Well its a Threadripper 12/24 C I run, or big Ryzen as i call it, and very well i must say.
    Only let down so far is that with over 32GB of memory in it, the CPU seem to struggle keeping up with the RAMs default 3600 MHZ speed, so ATM i only run 3450 MHZ on the 48GB of RAM.

    I have gotten a couple of "BSOD" but only since i dropped in the 5700XT, so i assume it is to blame for those, the 500 MHZ OC on the CPU seem to be fine and i will not push that further even though i have good temps.
    I would even like to update to one of the new models, but thats way outside what my pension allow for, and besides the performance gain are not that spectacular that it is something i must do.
    Maybe update to 32/64 C in a few years when they come down in a price range where i can play ball, and still use my current TR4 board.

    I like my 3600. Upgraded from a 2600 on a whim and because it was a drop in upgrade for my B450 board. Plays all the games I want with ease and plenty of performance for my occasional video editing. Better handling of higher frequency RAM was a nice bonus.

    Not really had any problems with either processor. Getting up and running was painless.ť

    Yep just getting Hackintosh stable on my 3700X and then she'll be ready to go under water in the big boy case!.

    Re: QOTW: How are you getting on with your AMD Ryzen processor?

    After an annoying replacement of the faulty 1600 I actually bought, I'm still rocking a 1600x (AMD upgraded my chip and gave me a free Cooler along as an apology for the 2 dead mobos), using it for 3D rendering and some gaming with an RTX 2060. I'm still happy with it but I do plan on replacing it on the next Ryzen iteration just for those faster rendering speeds).

    Looking like my next build will be AMD, my last one was an Athlon X2 a long time ago, that was replaced by a Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, then i7 920(?), i7-3770 so we'll see how it goes..

    Re: QOTW: How are you getting on with your AMD Ryzen processor?

    Upgraded from a FX8350 to a r5 1600 and it was night and day difference. I then upgraded to a 3700x (which is totally overkill for my gaming needs) but its just awesome with no overclcking on it until I put it under water soon.
