Solid CPU. Great entry level CPU for the X399 platform. Mine clocked up to 4.1 GHz with no modification to the voltage.

I have a torture test running right now while posting this build and writing the reviews. This monster doesn't care about anything. 4GHz with only 1.325v in BIOS, no LLC set. Tested with 3 hours of P95 small FFT torture test.
This beast also lets me run my guitar amp sim at a 48KHz sample rate with a tiny buffer size of only 16 without any pops or clicks. Insane.
BUT!...once I add anything else to the mix, I have to increase my buffer to 512. Very unfortunate. And unacceptable for tracking live instruments. Not as big of a deal with DSP only workloads but...I track live guitars and do live takes with my MIDI controllers. No bueno. Hell, just having an amp sim running with a media player playing a song for me to jam to, I get audio dropouts with a 256 buffer. Pathetic.
