hello.. I recently bought a new mother/chip/ram set, a i5 intel 9400f with 8gb RAM and an ASUS motherboard I left in my past a really solid i5 3rd gen also with 8gb RAM. I did my job, installed all the software I use( Cubase/Kontakt, Nexus, Waves and a couple more) opened my last project and....big surprise, the new equipment popped and cracked worst than my old one. So, after many tests and trials..I decided to return the new set and get my money back After some reaserch I discovered that my new chip was slower than my old one ( 9400f: 2.9ghz i5 / 3erd gen: 3.1 ghz) so maybe I should go for a new chip with more velocity. And I found this one: i3 9100f 3.6ghz My question is... for music production, can the i3 work better than the i5 9400? 6 cores against 4, and a higher cache ( 9 vs 6 ) Thanks in advance!
