First to reply! 

On a more serious note my processor is 5 years old and it's an intel! So it needs to go!


I'd love to replace my 3900x in my TrueNAS Core server with this LEGEND!!!

New month new chance! Lets go!

I know I'm a new member but I'll definitely get my ranking up ASAP! I'm going to be building my first PC! I'd love to be able to save money where I can and maybe buy a 7900 xtx to go big!

I wouldn't mind playing Jedi Survivor right now, but I'll just wait till it comes out on gamepass. I do have the new Zelda game ordered, so I'll play that some evenings after a good productive day. Nice giveaway! Thanks for the chance, AMD and Red Team! Good luck everyone and enjoy May and all its flowers to smell!


Hi, it seems like I will soon begin to plan for a new build sometime this summer. Yay! 

Adept III

Currently Playing Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Not really having the issues I keep hearing about my frame rate is average of 90 to 100 in 4k. There are a few issues but nothing I haven't really experienced in most modern releases day 1 maybe I'm just becoming accustomed to this lol. Anyway the game is great so far and I'm looking forward to spending my days off exploring it and enjoying the story.


Oh so shiny!

Adept III

Hello. I am currently playing Crab Champions and Raft with my friends and family. 


I'd love it so I can finally get away from this Blue Chip in my system....

Just here to say good luck to you lucky guys who live in the US or Canada!  👍
I'm not envious this month because I've just recently bought a Ryzen 9 5900X but I reserve the right to be envious next month instead. 😁

R9 3950X! A beastly CPU that I would love to build a rig around it. Thanks AMD! Best of luck to everyone!

Adept II

I would build a new system to take advantage of this great card. 

Adept II

Good luck everyone!

Adept III

so nice to have 

Adept I

Good luck everyone!!

I just upgraded to a Radeon RX 6400, and an AMD Ryzen 5 5600.

I can now play Hogwarts Legacy, and many others. 🙂👍

"This processor has 16 Cores and 32 processing threads, while also delivering ultra-fast 100+ FPS performance." Is that good? I don't know much about processors, but that seems good. I'm gonna go with, "that's good".. 

Adept I

I am looking to build my first PC, and was wondering if anyone has any advice for me. I am thinking of getting a RX 6700 XT with a Ryzen 5 5600x, but winning this CPU would be a whole lot better.

Adept III

I' not building a new rig, atm. 

But if I win this beast, I most certainly will!

Adept III

May the fourth be with you. I'm going all Sith in to help myself win.

Adept II

Adept II

AMD whoops the shizer out of Intel !! 


this reply does not promote or approve violence

Adept III

Our Ryzen build is my kid's gaming PC. Although we already have a 3900x in there, it's never too late to add a bit more of a gaming boost! So, good luck everybody!

Adept III

Whether or not you choose to geek out on May the 4th or decide to "Live long and prosper", I think we can all agree to, "Be excellent to each other and party on dudes!"
