    I wish I could rate this 6 starts! Went from 89% CPU usage while recording/streaming with 4 Cores/4 Threads to 30% usage while I'm recording, streaming, watching a YT video, and using multiple other tabs open in a browser. Absolutely flawless processor.

    At $269 (Paired with a Mobo at Microcenter) for a 8Core/16Thread monster of a CPU, its an amazing value of a CPU. Great with routine tasks, mining, virtual machines, and on synthetic benchmarks. If I do have any gripes, Its that it get pretty hot when pushing towards 4GHz OC with 1.37 V. But that's the case limiting the amount of cooling that I can throw at he CPU. Overall, an amazing value, and a strong performer.

    Runs like a dream. 8 Cores and can overclock very easily. Got it to run fine at 3.9ghz may go higher later on.

    So far I've had a great experience with my 1700x. Upgraded from an aging FX8320 that served me well. I gained a lot of performance across the board from games to editing/rendering. The FX8320 did well but I finally feel like I have Intel-level performance in games while still keeping the productivity potential of an 8core CPU from an AMD chip.

    I haven't had any issues with compatibility or anything with my MSi b350 tomahawk board either. I've had the whole setup for a month now - OC'd to 3.9ghz since day 1. Sure the 1700 can be manually overclocked and comes with a cooler and can match the 1700x - but I'm enjoying utilizing AMD's OC utilities the X offers. It's neat - I'm not too upset about the little more I spent.

    Runs fast and cool! 8 cores! Apparently the X on the 1700 just means it's clocked a bit faster, but it was only $20 more than the 1700 and I don't want to mess with overclocking.

    Premiere Pro is absolutely screamingly fast with this thing. Now all other computers seem inadequate.

    Bought it for only 150 bucks during Black Friday, which is a crazy good deal. Managed to get my chip to 4GHz at only 1.35V (stock voltage) stable. Tried going to 4.1 but it wouldn't budge, but it's all good. 4GHz at stock voltage for only $150. I really won the silicon lottery.
