    After watching a few reviews, they all come to the same conclusion that that 3950x is a beast, It made intels 10980XE obsolete in just hours after its release, this has to be some kind of record. Finally there are now reasonable priced work cpus.

    Actually looking the Puget system Benchmarks. I think the 3950 is probably all the CPU 99% of professional people will need. Most application don't scale up past 16 cores. These days 4 dimm slots doesn't really limit you in memory for Photoshop/Premier/Rendering, or basically anything else, (256GB of memory is easy to do now in a regular desktop). Even if you go over that, having a really fast PCIe scratch disk mitigates a lot of the memory limitations as your data is still arriving GB/s.

    Threadripper isn't required for gaming, or photoshop or Premier or anything else. Really the only application which can really use that many CPU is rendering and specifically coded technical programs most people don't use, ever. Even then the 3950 is faster than a 24 core thread ripper, so unless you were already on that platform with greater than 16 cores, its not something you need, or mostly would even be able to use.

    I'm a little bummed that I jumped on the 3900X now, but honestly i wouldn't pay that much for a CPU ever so it's not really an issue. Only reason i went the 3900 over the 3800 was the extra L3 cache per core...

    Actually the main reason i was bummed over the 3900X is the heat even on watercooling is just stupid. Does that preffered cores business apply to Intel too, or is just that AMD can't get all cores as being good quality? (well...probably why the chip is a 3900 not a 3950 eh)

    Will the 3950X under a custom water loop be able to go to 5GHz on all cores?

    Incredibly unlikely. You'll be lucky if you can even get the regular turbo boost on all cores.

    AMD have opted to give us everything the chip can do out of the box, rather than selling something that is gimped for power targets with lots of OC headroom as a side effect.

    I doubt it very much. Enough to actually just say no. I expect 4.4 - maybe 4.5 will be the limit with a good chip on custom water.

    You ordered a whole new rig from Umart? They are system builds only, they are keeping their stock for their value added stuff. Fuck that, if I were buying I'd be waiting so I could build my own rig any way I want.Those aren't available as a CPU only deal, at least not according to that link.

    Interesting - never saw that and they accepted my order and confirmed it by email.

    Will see what happens. I will let you know.

    Thanks all, I did download Ryzen Master and I'm seeing about 45 degrees at the desktop after all my game launchers have loaded.
    I feel alright now, that it is normal to what other people are seeing.
