All my cpu purchases have been in the last 3 months.

1 x 3600 for a friend
1 x 3100 for an acquaintance
1 x 3100 for me, as a placeholder for Zen 3 at some point.

I have gotten one or more of every AMD choice, including EPYC and threadripper. My signature has most of the details. I also got a couple of 14 core Xeons.

My complete list is:
Quantity, then breakdown.

3 - 1xxx series Ryzen
4 - 2xxx Series Ryzen
4 - 3xxx series Ryzen (still have)
9 - threadripper, 6 1950x, 2 2990wx, 2770wx
2 - 14 core Xeons
5 - EPYC, 2 7742, 2 7601, 7551 7452


After reading a few posts here, I am curious.

I wish there were more choices (more than 10) allowed, so I did my best to categorize.
Ryzen 1700, 1200AF,
Xeon X5650

This list excludes the various celery and A series chromebooks that have come and gone in school laptops...

i5-10400. Cheap, solid for gaming, Office and web browsing, which is what I do with the machine. Fast, quiet, happy with it. I looked at gaming scores compared to the Ryzen 3600 and went with Intel for obvious reasons. I also like Intel being happy with RAM and XMP out of the box and not worrying about chipset drivers. I know that most people have no issues with today's AMD platforms but I dunno. I don't have time for any chances.

I have like 8 other machines here anyway.

Oh, we got a mac mini to replace a really old iMac upstairs. That has an i5-8500 in it. Mainly used for my daughter's school work.

Will probably put a Rocket Lake chip in this z490, then move the i5 into a mini-itx build. Eyeing the Sliger Conswole, which will fit my GTX1070 for a nice HTPC/gaming box connected to the TV upstairs. Expecting to get a 3080 for my main rig in a few months or early next year.

Upgrades this year. The 9400F would probably be an AMD build, except for me having 32GB of DDR4 2666 memory and needing a place to put it. Also, I picked up the 9400F for $105 new locally, so it was very price effective all around.

3770k to 1600AF Zen+
5820k to 3600 Zen 2
New build 9400F

I'm still jaded against AMD- always had compatibility issues with their chipsets.

Just got an i5-10600K (Managed to find one!)

3 years and you still have no clue what is going on ? Do you have your head buried in the sand ?
Eh, AMD chipsets have their quirks - like reduced SATA performance on X570, StoreMI being axed and later resurrected without support for 300-series chipsets, chipset drivers not installing properly etc.

Do you have any links for that ? I certainly have not heard any of that. And I have not read it on any review site or here on the forums.

Chipset driver installation issues:
StoreMI discontinued but newer version came later:
I was wrong about 300-series support as they were never supported in the first place, but it would seem strange that they're not supported while the 400-series are, given that there is not much difference between the actual chipsets.
Reduced SATA performance on X570:

An issue back in April 2020? Is this still an issue cause I currently do not have any SATA devices in my X570 gaming rig. That, however will change once I upgrade my daily/main rig.

EDIT: never mind. lets not get off topic

Maybe it's just me, but every single serious driver/RAID controller/software quirk I've experienced had "issue with AMD such and such" listed in the cause. They may be better now, but I'm still not going back.
