Cheapest 3900x I found till now.

And 11600k is back in stock.
The i5 11600K doesn't seem as good of a deal as 11400 or even 11500. For 6 core CPU, R5 5600X is still better & much more efficient.

How would you rate this performance?
Are you guys excited for these chips since AMD promised them for the consumer market.

And what alternative do we have for the parts used in this build that don't come to India.

Anybody in TDF using the 64Core ThreadRipper Pro ?

The 6 Core i7 of mine feels tiny in front of this behemoth CPU

^^you mean the 3995wx? But wasn't it only available through lenovo workstation p620? I don't think anyone would have bought that expensive a system. But I would also like to know if someone has built a rig using TR 3990x.

Hope other processors also become available soon. I have been waiting to upgrade for a long time.. (My bio says i have a i7 6700k but it conked, im on a i3 7100, its bottlenecking my GTX 1070 while playing Valorant. Im looking forward to the i5 11400f but Zen 3 is also on the shortlist for its high IPC)
The i5 11400F is a better value for money CPU over R5 5600X as it's usually 18-20k vs 5600X's 26-28k. But 5600X will run ok with stock cooler & give close to full performance but i5 11400F will run fine at 65W & if you unlock its power limits for full performance, you will need a better cooler as it draws ~120W at full CPU load.

Also that seller for 5900X seems new, never heard of it. IMO CPU prices weren't too bad, like GPU.

I wont use the stock cooler, i have always felt an after market air cooler is an essential part of a build, in terms of performance as well as aesthetics. Have my eye on the GTE V2 but i may splurge on a ARCTIC Freezer 34 Esports Duo if i feel like it :grin: Just waiting for the CPU prices to cool down a bit.
