I initially was thinking between this and the 3700X but after assembling and testing the performance of this CPU, i think i made a good decision and saved that difference in terms of pricing for a better GPU. The CPU performed great even though it was comparable as a intel i5 CPU but i think it feels so fast and i couldn't even feel the difference between this CPU and my other laptop that was running on an i7 CPU. The price point is really unbeatable for team red. Only issue was the CPU temperature itself was hovering around 50 deg even when it was idling and i actually had a NZXT Kraken X62 AIO cooler attached to it but i think it should be fine because it was still way beyond its limit in terms of the temperature which i read online and lots of people say that it was normal. Other than that, really happy with the CPU's performance and price point and kudos to Amazon for delivering it so fast ahead of schedule all the way from US to Singapore, it was so fast and efficient.
