5800x under $600 here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/609193
So it turns out running an AIDA64 stats panel was actually boosting cores in the back ground when "idle" which was spiking idle temps. It wasn't obvious as the overall CPU MHz didn't change on the stats panel but looking at other stats programs I could see it, closing AIDA64 significantly reduced my idle temps.
Load temps reduced from 90C to around 75C running a tuned profile from CTR 2.0, pretty significant drop.
That surprises me. I run the AIDA64 stats panel full time on a separate 7" screen built into my custom wooden case, and it doesn't have that effect at all on my 5900X that I've noticed. I have loads, temps and MHz for all 12 cores permanently on display. I'll have to check it out with HWInfo or something to see if AIDA64 is lying to me now.
It could be because I am use Odospace via wifi to a remote panel on an old android Nexus 7 2013. Potentially other methods of using AIDA64 to run stats on a remote panel dont come with high "idle" temps like I am getting.
With it on it on I get a CPU temp of 60C+, or average temp of 50C+ measured in HWiNFO64, close AIDA64 and it drops to 40 and 30+ almost instantly.
Latency bug with aida64 is addressed in the latest AGESA 126.96.36.199.
Ummm yep. Rebooted few times now and stuck at those speeds
Edit: The sixth reboot fixed it.
Seems to be doing it on every cold boot. Have to restart to get it unstuck.
Just bought these two items separately in the last few weeks and now a fair bit cheaper in this deal. 5800X < $600 if you were going to buy an AIO anyway. Ekwb also rates very highly.
5800x will still get hot with that if you try to bench .
Gaming at low speed should be ok .
5800x = hot
5950x = catch on fire
Ran my 5900x on one of those 240 EK coolers in an itx build and it was a great match. Temps under 80c with open PBO limits and a quiet fan curve. They also don't have proprietary fan or rgb software, just a pwm and 5v argb header.
I'm running my 5900X @ 1.33v 48x all core, temps are pretty steady folding @ about 70° on a 280mm H115i. Personally I don't think its a particularly hot chip at all.
My custom wooden case is massive though (it incorporates a 27" monitor and car speakers), and it would be much better ventilated than most ITX builds, so that would no doubt be helping. 3x 140mm intake fans low on the front of the case and 3x 200mm exhaust fans high on the rear.
My filters are stainless steel insect screen, so they would flow a lot better than most filters (at the expense of a little more regular cleaning than a normal filter). The H115i is also at the rear, intaking from the case and exhausting out the back, but internal case temps are only a few ° over ambient so intaking from the case I doubt contributes much to the heat load.
Yep I don't think they are particularly hot either and they are quite efficient at managing their own boosting to stay within thermal and power limits. My case was close to my face so I had the fan curve peaking at under 50%.
I never played with a static OC on my 5900x but I know setting a constant 1.32v and 4.3ghz OC on my 3700x also dropped temps significantly as the boost algorithm could no longer pump 1.5v into cores in low load situations (to the detriment of single core performance).
Try running them at the speeds I do and then see how your cooler does .
So finally it appears AMD has identified the root-cause of the USB issues many across the internet has been experiencing. I am in the same boat, currently using a special quad-controller Startech PCIe card to be able to run my high-bandwidth devices in iRacing. Would be nice if the patch totally fix these issues.
Yep I've been having USB DAC issues like that - I thought it was coil whine from the GPU but good to have a better explanation.
I've been running older BIOS vers on my B450 board with 3000 series and using PCIE 4.0 device for a bit now with no issues. Interesting that it, along with perfect USB device functionality, has provided a better experience than B550 would've.
Sucks though that I probably can't run 5000-series on it without a BIOS update and losing PCIE 4.0 support. I really wish AMD would drop their PCIE 4.0 stand with 400-series.
I guess that all comes down to a/ whether you value a single core bench over a multi core set and forget daily, and b/ whether you won the silicon lottery or not.
Nothing wrong with a 12 core CPU at 4800 all core folding @ 100% load at 70° on an AIO. I wouldn't consider that a cooker at all.
They run hot , im not making it up
go back to the launch week and AMD acknowledged 5000 was hotter than 3000 and that it was normal/ok/expected
That makes everything ok then , thanks
