    ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X

    If you quickly look at a Z390 review, you would see they are testing with an Intel I9-9900K. I would agree, why there are comparative graphs of Intel and AMD kind of makes literally no sense. Especially when the platforms are using (using the Newegg pricing stick TPU utilizes) $495 vs $250...

    Deepcool Castle 360EX

    Everyone has their own concept of "standardized testing procedure" and there are pros and cons to how comparative tests are run for products. I'm not sure how his suggestion to run on AM4 isn't a respectable suggestion. It would confirm that the included mounting hardware with coolers could...

    Would you rather: 2700X for $170 or 3700X for $280

    Not sure why I would need to adjust the poll to reflect anything. I have to buy a motherboard in this situation as stated in the inital post, and I was pretty set on using an ASUS Strix B450-F due to the value for the product pricing. So I was looking at purchasing X & Y, and X became constant...

    Would you rather: 2700X for $170 or 3700X for $280

    If you also throw a 5700XT into the mix, you can get it for $350 as well.

    Would you rather: 2700X for $170 or 3700X for $280

    I could nab a 3600 for $150. Most results show it being close to the 2700X with an edge in gaming, but obviously a reduction in compute where more threads usage is applicable.

    Would you rather: 2700X for $170 or 3700X for $280

    I feel like the value of the 2700X for $170 is incredible for a relatively small performance decrease. Does anyone know where @W1zzard gets the current pricing value for his comparative value/performance charts? Thanks for everyone's responses and input in advance! [Both would be using a B450...

    EKWB EK-XLC Predator 240

    Yea, I guess I wasn't necessarily sold on the "better product" aspect. It seems relatively on par due to restrictions from both designs. I know the block from EK is generally considered superior, but then the pump is considered superior on the Swiftech, so there are definite trade offs in both...

    EKWB EK-XLC Predator 240

    I must have missed where this outperforms the less expensive Swiftech loop(s). This gets a 9.5 for performance not as good as, or just on par with something at least $50 cheaper? Also less warranty length, complicated Intel install and no AMD options. Really think the scores shouldn't be so...

    AMD R9 Nano Review

    But but....our opinions! I'm still holding onto mine until reviews from "unfair" people like W1zzard and HardOCP come out. (If you can't tell, I can't be more sarcastic).

    OCZ Trion 100 480 GB

    Just realized that these charts have comparative figures for the Samsung 850 EVO and 850 Pro lines, however I do not believe I have seen full reviews of these two units. @W1zzard , are these coming soon? I am curious about comparatively against the Crucial MX200, which you would prefer right now.

    Corsair Hydro Series H80i GT

    Linus TechTips does this. He reviews all his coolers with the stock fans and Noctua F12s.
