I like the much quicker boot than the Rampage V Edition 10 and snappier feel. I just did not like losing 1/3 of the memory and two adapter cards as well as the quad channel memory. I was going to nab the new Threadripper until I saw the $1400 price tag just for the CPU. I saw the 3800X for the same price as the 3700X during Black Friday and decided to give it a try. The system did not want to boot with the memory at stock settings of 3000Mhz, CL 15-17-17-35. I finally got it to boot setting the timings to CL 16-18-18-36 and overclocked the memory to 3600Mhz.
That's one thing I'll say for the newer X299 motherboards as tested with the Core i9 10980XE. They are pretty damn quick to boot.

While I don't like super-fast boots (due to being unable to easily get into the bios), outside of that I've noticed boot times sped up significantly since I moved the swap file to the optane memory (32gig) drive I have.

I was thinking about the ten core 10900 until the price kept going up and up on them before my big pay-check arrived.

I stopped by Micro Center just to window shop last Sunday. By chance they just got some of the 3950x in, so grabbed it. Not sure why since I would not even use all that cores. Took 15 min to swap out the 2700x (will go into my Unraid server), 9180 Cinebench 20 at stock setting plus PBO.

I'm not running an R9 3900x. My i7-7700k is looking for a new home. Still deciding what to do with it.

Things have changed a lot here too.

Home work desktop: Ryzen 2700X
Macbook Pro: i7-4750HQ
frankenstein hadoop cluster: i5-3470, i5-5300U, Xeon W3680
Wife's iMac: E8135 (Core 2 Duo Penryn) -- to be replaced this year, I think
Ultra 60: 2 x 450MHz UltraSPARC II -- to be retired this year, I hope
The Ultra-60 is gone, sold for what I paid for it ($50). The original "frankenstein" cluster was also sold off; the hadoop cluster now looks like 4 x Ryzen 1600 plus 1 x Ryzen 2300X. The iMac is now a 2019 model i5-9600K. The 2700X desktop and rMBP are unchanged.

and the bronze keyboard Powerbook still turns on and boots; I checked.
