Are you trolling? lol

That CPU would be more than enough for Reaper / Music production... of course depending on what else you put in the PC. But that CPU is quite high end. Most people here would be working with less. You'd be hard pressed finding much better to work with than that processor or a Ryzen 9 3900X.

Of course, this is also a little subjective though, as it depends on how complex your projects get as to how much processing power you need, but either way, that CPU would perform quite well. It might be "a hand grenade for an ant-hill" approach to fixing a problem though depending on what you're doing.

I wonder what the rest of your PC looks like too, as there may be good reason to dial back the CPU a bit and use that savings to improve something else, like drive speed or memory, for example.
