    Curiosity get satisfied. Exciting to see how big BOOM comes after it's reinserted in the MB and powered up.

    Many cheaper ways to produce smoke signals.

    How about a 10775 Time Spy score (second on our leaderboard) with "just" a 1080 and a Threadripper 1950X.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X review - Performance - 3DMark Time Spy CPU

    PS: these must be some of the reasons dude is "pondering".

    "Final Words*
    Well, that's a bunch of processor performance alright - pretty cool, huh? The word 'amazing' is the one word that keeps returning while I was testing this platform. First off, this - you will not need a 16 or 12 core processor for your gaming needs, I mean, come on. Get yourself a nice 6 or 8-core processor and by all means please do save yourself a lot of money. But there's always the enthusiast PC DiY builder, and ironically it's a lot of people that can be found in the Guru3D reader-base. An enthusiast experience is what this all about and what it will bring to the table. You get twice the cores for half the money that Intel is asking. And sure, there in the end might be that 5% 1080p game performance difference in-between the two in perhaps Intel's advantage, but still, AMD is king and rules the HEDT market with these prices. So in that mindset it is once again amazing to see how much value you can gain from Threadripper processors, and I do know that 799 or 999 USD is weird to tag with the label 'value', but really... it is. Never, ever has any consumer been able to purchase a 12 or 16-core processor in this price range as that was exclusive*to a very expensive server market. For the guys and girls that have pro-workstations and do a lot of video editing, this stuff right here is pure gold. For content creation, again, this is amazing. For the extreme ones that stream, edit, browse and do it all at once, this is, again, amazing. Ergo, this chapter ends where I started it, amazing. And amazing doesn't always have to make sense."
