No one has ever accused him of being intelligent.
rog b550-f? pretty sure that has bios flashback so you don't even need a cpu
Time to change your avatar J.
Possibly. But I like it.
I went from 1700 to 2700X to 3600 and got my 5900X today. I haven't opened the box yet Just grabbed it while it was available, just in case. I'd actually rather a 5950X but if it takes too long to get one I'll finish up using this 5900X instead.
/takes a ticket for when hes 'done' with it
/edit might be the only way to get one the way things are going lol that and im in no rush, will watch on and see what you blokes find first
You can have it for only eleventy million dollars but I'm no scalper, I'll throw in free postage
Where'd you manage to score the 5900x Ratzz?
damn, i lost my stash of eleventy bills a while back. still, it was worth a try
never used a stock cooler but i gather the 3600 one wasnt anything special? does look a little warm for the clock but hard to be sure.... i also dont know if the amd stock tim takes curing time either, it might settle down after a bit?
MSY Dandenong. I saw a link to one there, I went to their site and yep, they had one, which I bought immediately. I went back to the site literally 2 minutes later and they were out of stock, pure arse : . Picked up the next morning.
I went from 3700x to 5950x
Games? Not much difference, as I am bottle necked by my 1060 3gb.. Particularly for First person shooters. Things like fortnight, don't ever even max out one core and typically only load up 4 or 5 threads. Strategy games however, feel quite nice, even the older ones. Combination of faster single and multi probably plays a part here.
Benchmarks? Heaps faster, in every way.
Work stuff? Still early days yet, but noticeably faster.
Like anything depends what you do. best combined with memory upgrades/SSD upgrades/GPU upgrades for maxium effect.
However, a 3700x is not exactly slow. 18 months ago that would have been a super high spec system.
How quick do your guys 3900x's come down in temps after stopping a benchmark? Seems like on water you'd expect the core temps to come down within a couple of seconds but I'm seeing it cools back down rather gradually
The CCxs themselves come down instantly but the package temp is like a steady decline back to idle
Load temps with all out of the box settings seem a bit high too, coming 75-80 in benchmarking load on a pretty beefy water setup
Bad mounting pressure? Normal operation?
edit: repasted and tightened down as much as humanly possible with thumb screws, temps drop down instantly once load is removed, peak temp down a good 4-5 degrees... sweet
