I don’t like it when people benchmark purely on gaming. After all when you have a PC you will use it for tasks where the availability of more cores does help. And as Sean said IF they are to benchmark the speeds should be kept equal and go all out to mention that its a gaming specific test.
But for most average users who are just into gaming and not into video editing, or intensive graphic editing, we really have no need for more than 4 cores for average daily productivity.

cos that's what AMD 'fans' with their 10, 12 cores say to justify their purchase mah.. run Cinebench R20 over and over and gawk at their amazing multi-core scores

At the end of the day, just buy one that suits our daily needs. If you are into high resolution gaming, video editing or transcoding, then it justify going for a 8~12 cores CPU. But for gaming, you hardly use more than 4 cores.
For average users like me who is just into gaming at 1080P and daily needs like surfing, movie streaming, simple daily productivity tasks, a 3300X with 16GB ram is more than enough.

Agree with you but a lot of people are looking at 1440P AND even 4K gaming expecting it to be good on the lower end CPU. I for one am and was quite surprised that some games don't run that well on ultra in 4K using the RTX 2080 Ti and the Ryzen 9 3950X.

That said, a lot of people that do go all out on the GPU are usually running a 12 or 16 core Ryzen. Would be good to do a side by side comparison of a 3600 vs 3950 both loaded up with a RTX 2080 Ti.

Fixed up the ek aio!

Temp comparison with the cryorig r1 with cpu vcore offset -0.1v:

Cryorig r1:
Full idle - 48C
Cinebench - max 83C; Score 6913; Core frequency 4038-4040mhz
Everyday use (chrome(18 tabs) with 2 emulator) - 57C-62C

EK AIO 240:
Full idle - 45C
Cinebench - max 77C; Score 6980; Core frequency 4075-4080mhz
Everyday use (chrome(18 tabs) with 2 emulator) - 57C-59C

Noise wise, it gets quite loud at about 80% fan and pump speed (not sure exact since fan and pump curve is set to 100% at 80C and i'm not hitting that limit.)

hmm i’m using 3900X with a $30 is-60 low profile cooler in a node 202 case with cpu voltage offset of 0.05V and my idling temp is around 38-40°C.

Guys, is it better to buy 4x8GB or 2x16GB RAM?
4x8GB seems better for ryzen here
but reviewer use X470 with T layout, so ymmv
