Let me get this straight, the 3950x is NOT a CPU a gamer or a streamer would want. The 3950x is made for video editing, running VMs, servers and even mining. It has the most powerful multi-core performance for a consumer processor. For streamers, the new NVENC encoder on the latest Turing GPUs is able to match CPU x264 quality so having a high core count CPU for streaming is no longer a requirement. With NVENC, you can stream smoothly even with the 6c/6t 9400F. Running two or three programs in the background while gaming is hardly demanding for multi-threaded, multi-core CPU these days. If most of your daily usage consist of gaming and streaming, look elsewhere, such as the 9900k or 9700k where they will give you more headroom for a faster GPU if you happen to upgrade in the future while also being much cheaper. The 3950x also makes lots of sense if you plan to edit and render videos all day long.—Jan '20
