yup that’s exactly what I did before my amd build. I swore I wouldn’t buy amd again post my disastrous fx6300 with not one, not two, not three but four motherboard failures within 2 years.Hey Mark. Good seeing you as well. Thanks for the info. I'll likely wait til July and see what shakes out then.
And thanks Fanatical Meat for the info. It's funny you mention the FX days. That was primarily the reason I asked about AMD reliability/compatibility. Good to hear all seems to be well. I'm actually looking forward to my next rig. I really wasn't juiced moving to this 7600K when I did.
I was going to go intel but now intel has regular security holes that need to be patched and each patch slows them down a little bit. No end in sight for the patches either.
