I went with AMD because my old i7 1150 socket had popped its 3rd motherboard. Well the last one i bought was *** and for the same motherboard today it was almost $500 for a USED one. Was kinda sick of Intel. This chip is running 3.77ghz out of the box on my asus prime x370 motherboard. No problems yet.
This core was integrated into a new Home Theater Personal Computer (HTPC) system. Its low power consumption and excellent performance make it well suited for an Home Theater PC build. Core runs cool even though thermal grease is not high quality. This processor has been used mainly for moderate gaming applications and Blue ray movie playback. After one month of moderate use this processor has performed flawlessly.
