AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is a CPU made by AMD. This CPU has an am5 socket and 16 cores. Some people have made complaints that this CPU runs hot without the proper cooling system so you may want to consider that when you plan on purchasing this CPU. But aside from that this is a very good CPU when it comes to gaming.

This CPU is 598.98 On newegg. This is overall a very well-performing CPU and there are a lot of good things that come with the purchase of this.  This CPU has 16 cores and 32 threads to help make it run faster. The amount of Cache is, L1 Cache 1MB L2 Cache 16MB L3 Cache 64MB for this.

Intel Core i5-11400F Review

The Intel Core i5-11400F is the greatest value CPU I could find for my home PC today.  The Intel Core i5-11400F has an LGA 1200 socket. If this CPU is compatible with your motherboard, whether your PC is used for business or just for at home, I would highly recommend this CPU. Get This CPU here.

On Newegg this CPU currently costs $135.93.  Only thing about this CPU I would not use it if you are planning to use it for a gamer PC. It would not be the fastest or best option for that category.

Today I’m going to be posting this blog and we will cover AMD makes the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X witch I think that AMD makes some of the best CPUs out there which is one of the many reasons why you should buy this CPU.An illuminated AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper processor chip floating in a futuristic cityscape.

this CPU has an strx4 socket which was a perfect fit for my motherboard it made mine really fast and smooth it will run you a pretty penny though it cost me 4526.99 dollars so it’s not cheap but it’s worth it had 64 cords its clock speed it 2.9GHz I would recommend it if you have the extra money have no issue with this purchase and would buy again

AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Review

The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is by far one of the best deals I have gotten for a fast CPU that is fast and will not let any occasion down. In the time that I’ve had this CPU, I have had absolutely no problems with it and it runs almost anything that you can put your mind to, which is probably why it got such a good score on Passmark, with a score of 39010, and a Single Thread Rating of 2710. 

This CPU is also priced very well, at $579.99. The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X has 16 cores and 32 threads, which allows this CPU to do much more than your average PC. On Newegg, this CPU got a whole 5 out of 5 stars, coming from 187 different ratings.

This CPU also takes an AM4 socket. This socket is decent but it is even better when the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is connected to it, giving the CPU a base speed of 3.5GHZ and a max speed of 4.7GHZ. One thing I do recommend though, is a newer type of RAM to give it an even better performance.

i9-11900K Review

The Intel i9-11900K is the best CPU I have ever bought. When I bought it I wasn’t thinking if it would work on my cheap Motherboard so I was hoping it would. When it arrived I wasn’t even thinking that it would not work so I put it into the CPU socket and when I started up my PC it worked. The CPU was working better than any CPU I had ever bought. The CPU benchmark score is 25537 which is an ok score but what makes this CPU so good is its Single Thread Rating. Its Single Thread Rating is 3531 which is really good considering the CPU benchmark score.


(note: clicking on the image will take you to the CPU benchmark page)

Most might consider the price to be way too high with it being priced at $349.94 but I think that it was worth every penny. I also think that it is set at the perfect price I feel like if it was priced higher I would not have bought it.



(Note: clicking on either image will take you to Newegg)


This CPU is an LGA1200 with 8 cores and 16 threads. It has a clockspeed of 3.5GHz. Its L1 cache is 320KB, its L2 cache is 2.0 MB, and its L3 cache is 16 MB.

In conclusion, I would recommend this CPU to anyone who has the money to pay for it and if their Motherboard supports it. If you ever upgrade a PC make sure to buy this CPU if you don’t use it already.

i7-12700KF Review

The Intel i7-12700KF is the best CPU that I have ever purchased and I’m more than happy to share my review of it with all of you. In the time that I have owned this CPU, I have not had any problems with it. It runs all of my games extremely well, and scored very high on PassMark, with a score of 34517, and a  single thread rating of 4045.Large, zoomable image of Intel Core i7-12700KF. 2 of 11

This CPU is also priced very well, at $276.81. The i7-12700KF has 12 cores and 20 threads, which allows this CPU to do multiple tasks at the same time, and maintain a fast speed.  On Amazon, this CPU reached a rating of 4.8 stars out of 5, from 905 different ratings.

Not only does this CPU have 12 cores and 20 threads, but it also takes Intel’s newest socket, the LGA 1700. This socket is extremely fast, which allows the CPU to have a base speed of 3.6 GHz, and a turbo speed of 5.0 GHz. This CPU works exceptionally well with all operating systems, especially Windows 10 and Windows 11. I recommend using a new version of RAM with this CPU, which gives even better performance.

In Conclusion, I would recommend this CPU to anyone in the market for a new CPU, but that also do not want to break the bank. This CPU is very powerful and has all of the specs to back it up. This CPU blew past all of my expectations for it, and I am more than satisfied with my purchase.

Intel Core i9 12900KF

The Intel Core i9 12900KF is one of the best CPUs I personally have ever tested and I am happy to share my thoughts and facts to base them off of. This CPU is priced at $616.99 and has 16 cores and 24 threads to allow you to complete a variety of different tasks at once. The i9 12900KF is one of the KF counterparts to the K-series CPUs that were produced by Intel, which are usually cheaper than the K-series, but can be just as effective on certain tasks.


Motherboards that are best fit for this CPU are motherboards with the LGA 1700 CPU socket that can allow up to 2.4GHz of speed for the CPU to function at peak performance. This CPU is great to work for Windows 11 and makes Windows 10 work like it’s brand new. Your best options for memory are DDR4/DDR5 so long as the speed is close if not the same as the CPU.

Using the specifications below, I have found where another person has tested this CPU and got their own results and their own opinion on it. (the image is a link to the site)

  • The new P-core is faster than a Zen 3 core, and uses 55-65 W in ST
  • The new E-core is faster than Skylake, and uses 11-15 W in ST
  • Maximum all-core power recorded was 272 W, but usually below 241 W (even in AVX-512)
  • Despite Intel saying otherwise, Alder Lake does have AVX-512 support (if you want it)!
  • Overall Performance of i9-12900K is well above i9-11900K
  • Performance against AMD overall is a mixed bag: win on ST, MT varies
  • Performance per Watt of the P-cores still lags Zen3
  • There are some fundamental Windows 10 issues (that can be solved)
  • Don’t trust thermal software just yet, it says 100C but it’s not
  • Linux idle power is lower than Windows idle power
  • DDR5 gains shine through in specific MT tests, otherwise neutral to DDR4

(the list above is not my words, the credit to this list belongs to Dr. Ian Cutress & Andrei Frumusanu)

Looking back on all of what has been stated/listed, this CPU has a record of working great for whatever task is required of it. Don’t just take my word for it, go out and find other reviews on this if you are interested in making this purchase to get the opinion of countless others.
