    Once you count his OC its actually not that good lol.

    I feel sorry for him. 140W is apparently according to the vega thread, a lot of heat lol. probs 250W with the OC.

    Thanks for taking the time to add to the results pool mate :thumbup:

    Based on what you do I wouldn't upgrade at all, or go for the 1600X if you do. The 1200 will be a step backwards, BUT will support faster RAM, NVMe etc so it depends on what's important to you.

    If you stick with what you have just wind up the OC, make sure you have plenty of 1866+ RAM and get a better GPU - you really want a better GPU and that's where I'd be putting my money mate :thumbup:

    I can confirm they run hot! I have crazy amounts of cooling so I can tame my chip but definitely a hot platform!

    Just so I am reading that right - your cpu beats a 1800x at stock in single thread but even at 5.15GHZ is still well behind in multi thread against a stock 1800x

    Is that right??

    HardOCP unboxes the new XSPC waterblock for TR. They should have an article up next week with overclocking results.

    At least I'm not the only one who noticed that a stock AMD 8 core was beating a overclocked Intel 12 core :lol:

    The Intel chip he was testing was an 8 core/16 thread. Same as the 1800.

    6 core not 8 ( its a 7800x) and is 2 % behind in the same test.

    220w in prime so not that bad.

    the more interesting comparison would be a 1600x pushed to the limit vs his 7800x as it's the same core/thread count.
    so the single thread would remain the same(ish) and the AMD would lose the multithread by ???

    which sounds bad, but then you stop and think; the 1600x is cheaper to purchase, cheaper to run, cooler running temps. and at the end of all of that, you wouldn't notice any difference in game play or real life home desktop stuff.
    what you would notice, is that you could afford to purchase a better video card ...

    i vote he stays in the thread, purely as comic relief :thumbup:

    as for jest my reference to a 19 6950 $2500 chip is 2008 percent vs 1198 percent and i loose single threaded by 2 percent so yep :)
    and you are using that old nugget 2.43 for real bench i will have to rerun those.
    but nice work on cb15...at 4.7 you nearly beat the 1920x at stock :p

    i,ll get some 2.43 results for you how about wprime?

    3.6 seconds and i think it was 51 seconds for the other i,ll screen a few of those as well.


    as for time spy you are using a 1800 dollar card so no contest :) but i will grab the latest one for the physics for you.

    ok first batch(i have an issue with 2.43 vlc crashes so no idea if it skews the results and on a 4k i have to scroll :)
    as you can see the temps are good during heavy encoding sat around 44 degrees.

    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/21670226

    not sure if the link will work seems 3dmark is being a biatch and not keeping my scores because it has no idea what the vega is :)

    sorry i lied the vega is not exactly stock i upped the ram to 1005 and upped the fan and max temp but did not touch the core.(to be fair :))

    now looking at yours i think overclocked our cpu score is higher which really only tells me what everyone knows is it is not making use of the threads.

    ok some 3.9 results achieved by putting 3900 in a box and putting 1.35 in another box :)
    of course that can probably be tweaked a little as well.

    highest temp i saw on node 0 or 1 was 70 degrees(still with fans at only like 70 percent so room for that too)

    Sounding promising mate!

    The photos are shrunk though so I cant see the CPUZ scores?

    Right click and "View Image" is what I do in Firefox. The forum scales them down.
