    Poderoso y calentón

    Es un procesador muy potente, tiene cambios de temperaturas muy brusco, deberás acomodar perfiles o hacerle un pequeño undervolt

    I picked this up as an upgrade for my Ryzen 7 3700x and it boosted my power by around 30% I mostly play games at high or ultra with my 3080 12g at 1440p.

    Very fast cpu

    Had to replace my ryzen 5 2600 after a power surge got to it. This thing gave me a noticeable bump in performance. I’m running the factory amd cooler that came with my 2600 but planning on doing a water cooler because this one does run much hotter. Normally with my 2600 I was around 65 while heavy gaming and this guy likes to run around 80, which apparently is completely acceptable for this card, it can run up to 93 or something without loosing performance. I got my little cooler turned up pretty aggressive though so a water cooler will make things alot quieter. All in all its way overkill for my rtx 3070 but will pair nicely with a 40 series card when I decided to upgrade.

    AMD does it again

    I have been using AMD processors for decades now, and this affordable upgrade to my Ryzen 5 3600 made a significant difference in my boot time application performance. I’m not much of a gamer, but when I do dabble in them, performance is fine. If you are a hard-core gamer, you probably want to go with a notch or two above this CPU, but it is still a sound investment for overall use. Again, AMD shows their excellent product quality.

    What a beast

    The media could not be loaded.

    I had a ryzen 7 2700 paired with a 3080 12gb oc was bottle necking alot, I wanted the 5800x3d but couldn’t afford it, after the switch it was a huge difference, alot more settings in bios to tweak and oc, even paired with a little 120mm coolermaster aio, temps are low even running the newest games at max specs. I’m running two monitors and it’s lightning fast. Nice cpu, I’m curious how it will handle 4k, I guess we’ll have to wait and see when that day comes.

    Good first step before buying the more expensive version

    Great product, husband loves it for a new upgrade for his gaming unit. Next year will upgrade to the more expensive version but this one was good for this year!

    Unbiased review from somebody that runs Intel and AMD

    I have built various AMD and Intel systems since my first build which was the AMD K6-2 /500Mhz processor. From there I went to Pentium 3, back the the AMD XP 2000+ and back to the Pentium 4…..I think you get the point. I am old and have built a lot of systems since then. With that said, the last AMD system I built was the FX-9590. I had the FX-8350 and the FX-8150 before it. The FX-9590 was decent, but AMD lied about it, and lost a class action lawsuit for claiming it had more cores.AMD really had nothing to upgrade from after the FX series so Intel was the only way to go. I went with the Intel i7-5820K in 2014, ended up with the Intel 6900K around 2018 while pushing that processor to an impressive 4.3GHz and cooled it with Noctua. AMD had nothing to really compete with Intel until Ryzen. And in my opinion it took a few generations for me too look at AMD again.As an overclocking enthusiast, Intel chips by far are better for overclocking, PERIOD! Intel leaves some room there to do this. AMD seems to squeeze everything they can out of their processors using technology which isn’t a bad thing. PBO + AutoOC seems to give the best performance out of these Ryzen processors versus trying to overclock the chip manually. I know, people on the internet claim they got it to 4.8 or 5.0 stable, but have you?I decided I don’t care about overclocking with this processor because I get the most out of it with PBO + AutoOC. I came to AMD because the new 11th generation Intel chips leave me no upgrade path. This processor is faster or equal to the current Intel flagship and much cheaper. The motherboards for AMD are cheaper as well. Plus, the Intel 11th gen leaves no upgrade path as Alderlake will be on a new socket. At least with this AM4 system and having the Ryzen 7 5800X, I could always get a quick upgrade with a Ryzen 9 down the road when they become more available and the cost comes down.I picked AMD this time and I am very happy with my decision. My computer is super fast compared to the I7-6900K at 4.3 GHz that it replaced. No comparison. Still, I won’t discount the fact that I will be back on an Intel system again down the road. Going from AMD to Intel has been my experience for over 20 years.If you buy this chip you won’t be disappointed.

    please read the first paragraph at least!!

    so, i was one of the (statistically few) who hit the silicon lottery and struck dirt. basically, my 5800x was defective. this is just a PSA, if you encounter BSODs/crashes to reboot/fatal hardware errors after installing your new CPU, it is likely defective. i was getting WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR at random times, event IDs WHEA-18 and 46. no combination of the CPU with a new motherboard, different ram, 1 stick of ram, XMP profiles off, PBO disabled, bios updates, windows reinstalls, chipset driver updates, or other device driver updates resolved the issue for me. it would occur under any load at any temperature. it’s also worth mentioning that it worked fine for about 5 days before issues started to happen. if your PC is producing errors you simply cannot resolve and it started with the new CPU, please return it ASAP!! i have ordered a new one already and shipped the defective unit back. i used my old ryzen 2600 to isolate the 5800x as the issue, and my system runs completely stable as long as i keep it on. i’m sad it was defective, but ultimately, i’m not going to let it damage my opinion of the CPU, as defective products are guaranteed to slip through here and there, and amazon is extremely good about their return policy in my experience.anyway, with that out of the way, let’s talk about the CPU itself. when mine was functioning normally, it was awesome. coming from an old ryzen 5 2600, the performance gain of the 5800x is a night and day difference. it’s 3 years old now, but its price and still-relevant performance make it an immensely good value. it squeezed new fps gains out of my gtx 1080, and was far more than enough for my new rtx 4070. the gains in performance are even more obvious now that i’m back on the 2600 while i wait for my replacement to arrive. it was as easy to install as any other AM3/AM4 CPU. i will give a heads up however that it does run hot and is known to do so. however, AMD has explicitly stated that even 90°C is safe at full load. a high quality air cooler will be enough if you don’t plan on doing serious overclocking, like me. a thermalright peerless assassin or scythe fuma should be more than enough for stock clocks with PBO left on auto. i paired this with 32gb of gskill ripjaws V with 3600mhz XMP profile, and the two paired wonderfully. the motherboard i ended up with is an MSI MAG B550 tomahawk max wifi, but the CPU will work just fine on most B450/X470 motherboards as long as your bios is up to date!!!! please do not let my disclaimer dissuade you from buying this amazing CPU, it can happen to anyone who buys any CPU, from Intel too! i can’t wait for my replacement to arrive and complete my system, i wholeheartedly recommend this CPU for great performance per dollar.

    Amazing CPU for Gaming!

    I have had this CPU for around exactly one year now. Normally I do all my tech reviews fairly early but I wanted to really use this chip, overclock it, game, and do lighting editing as well. To start off my full system is a Ryzen 5800X, Asus X570-Pro board, 32GB of 3600mhz G.Skill CL16 memory (4x8GB), EVGA G3 Supernova 850 watt 80+ Gold PSU, EVGA RTX 2070 Super GPU, Cooler Master NR600 Case, Noctua NH-D15 Chromax Black Edition CPU cooler. I have two Gen 4 NVMe drives and 4 normal sata SSD drives. My case is filled with all Cooler Master Masterpro ARGB high CFM airflow fans. I’m also using an internal wireless card as well as my particular x570 board doesn’t come with onboard WiFi. My reason for stating all this is the airflow and cooling in my case is exceptional. I have one of the highest airflow cases, with some of the best fans, one of the best CPU coolers, and I’m using Thermal Grizzly Kryonaunt paste which is hands down the best CPU test for overclocking and temps in general imo. Stating all this because YOUR temps may be different than mine as well as your results. To start of with the chip I’ve not had ONE single issue with it so far after a year of use. ALL I have done to it after installing it in place of the Ryzen 3600 that it replaced was I enabled DOCP on my memory which is AMDs version of XMP and I enabled PBO on my chip with the max limit set at 200mhz. That it all I touched. This chip boosts to 5.1ghz when using 2-3 cores or less easily and even if under full load will still stay around 4.75ghz on all 8 cores at 100% load. In a more realistic load like gaming it runs around 4.75-4.95ghz. Under full load like Prime95 my temps top out around 74C. Idle is around low 30s and while gaming it bounces around 55-65C. It runs super fast and super cool. This is all on air cooling too. When going from the 3600 to the 5800X while every single other aspect of my system remained the same I gained anywhere from 10 fps to over 20 fps on some games. I play at 1440P as well. If you play at 1080P your results will be even better. This is the best chip I’ve ever used and owned. My RTX 2070 Super is overclocked 1100mhz on the memory and 140mhz on the core. On benchmarks my scores beat all stock and even factory OC 2080 Supers. They also beat almost all RTX 3060 ti results as well. I’ve never played a single game where this chip bottlenecks my card ever. Whereas with the 3600 it did from time to time. Especially in games using DLSS which renders the game at a much lower resolution then upscales it. That makes the game way more CPU demanding and in titles with DLSS my fps increase was huge. Absolutely amazing cpu for gaming and you don’t have to do anything other than enable PBO. Gone are the days of manual overclocking to get all the performance you paid for. The chips auto boost themselfs as high as they can go basically all by themselves now. If you have any Zen + or Zen 2 chip and wanna upgrade to Zen 3 aka Ryzen 5000 I say it’s well worth it for gaming. The IPC increase on Ryzen 5000 over 3000 series is huge. Over 30% faster. I’ve included pictures of my setup, CPUz info, benchmark results, MSI Afterburner temperature info after playing Witcher 3 at 1440P on Ultra settings for hours, and many other others. The chip boosts high, runs cool, requires basically no knowledge to get max performance from it outside of TWO toggles in the bios, and at its current price is an amazing value imo. Fast enough to pair any GPU on the market with it if you can find one. I’ve been wanting a 3080 forever now but just no luck. I paid the MSRP of 450 for this chip and don’t regret it at all. No crashes, no issues ever, never breaks 70C while daily use/gaming no matter how long, boosts over 5ghz, and has enough cores/threads if you wanna stream and multitask while gaming you’re good to go. I think AMD did an amazing job with Zen 3 and if you’re interested in the 5800X for gaming/streaming you won’t go wrong. Hope this review helped and if it does please leave a like. Enjoy the pics and thanks for reading.

    Faster than lightning!

    Upgraded from the 2600x to this monster of a cpu. It’s not quite as fast as the 5800x3d but the difference between the two in most AAA game titles is negligible. I got this for a good amount less than the 3d and coupled it with the Sapphire 7800 xt. All of my games are 100+fps or higher. It’s the perfect budget cpu and frankly most titles favor Ryzen these days. Nvidia has become delusional. Thank you AMD!*note-it does run hot under load. Around 90 degrees Celsius but this is normal for this CPU (anccording to AMD themselves) and won’t cause any harm. However, if you have a cheap motherboard I’d recommend a water cooler. I got one (ID aio) for around $80 and this dropped the temperature to around 75 under load.

    4rth fastest Consumer CPU on the Market? I Guess It is.

    It’s hard to believe that just 5 years ago an 8 core 16 thread CPU cost well over $100 USD and now the 2700 can be found for $150 (as is could for the last two years) while the 3700X for $279.99 is quite a bargain as well. So is the 5800X worth 33% of a 2016 8/16 from Intel? Or 50% more than a 3700X? 250% more than a 2700?!? That’s actually a tough call, so I’ll go with a *maybe.* If you already have a 2700 and game, 4k and don’t rely too heavily on Photoshop or rendering scenes/videos, then no, I don’t think it is. If you have a 3700X or 9900/K or better that turns into a hard no unless you really need those extra few minutes it will save you rendering over the course of a day (if that). Now if you have a 2700X or lower and play games at something =/<1440p then you may certainly want to consider it.Besides noticing an immediate difference in little things, like how quick the mouse is on my desktop compared to a 2700, my in-game FPS is up roughly 10% @1440p with a paltry XFX 5700 non-XT. I definitely didn't expect that much of a difference, but since I still plan on upgrading my GPU, most likely in late August or September when the lower prices in the East start making their way to the Western markets, I thought "Why not, you'll just end up spending the extra money on something silly, and you've been squirreling money away since the launch of the 6800/XT and 6900XT's were released. By the time I settled on what GPU I wanted and would benefit me most when I work from home, the prices were so silly I didn't want to contribute to an unhealthy consumer market considering I have another PC I use for 85% of my work. To my surprise, it did help my GPU out quite a bit more than expected, while greatly improving efficiency in CAD.While the gaming performance is great, and I don't anticipate hitting any bottlenecks with the 6800XT or 3080Ti (the 3080 would be a fantastic match for gaming and home office work *if* it wasn't so RAM starved, which I see being a big problem within the next couple of years; what was Nvidia thinking? Bleh, giving it the same amount of RAM as mid-range cards from 2016?). The chip itself burns through most workstation tasks faster than any other 8/16 I have ever used. At stock speeds it sips power, runs very cool (I'm using the stock Wraith Prism that came with the 65 Watt 2700) even when gaming, while having no problem keeping it's 4.7 boost for as long as needed. In CPU intensive games like Cyberpunk 2077, Bannerlord or Red Dead Redemption 2 the chip laughs as it might hit 78c and continues to jog along at 4.7, without missing a beat until the action slows down. Baldur's Gate 3 is also a joy to play over the 2700 in battles since it runs through so many different scenarios and variables with every NPC before taking that character's action for the round. 7-10 seconds per NPC has turned into 1-2, which is fantastic when you have 30 bad guys on the field.That said, it is a pretty good value for the money if you are upgrading a pre-2017 system or a 6/12 or lower thread count CPU. If you're building a mid-range to high-end gaming PC it's fantastic, and is a great option for a home workstation. I could even see running a virtual machine or two with it in a pinch. It really is a dynamic, blazing fast CPU that will probably last a good 3-7 years depending on your needs.

    You won’t be disappointed

    I upgraded from a ryzen 3700x because of tech issues that weren’t related, but this is such a better piece of tech. Mainly used for gaming, everything feels smoother and faster I would definitely recommend this if it’s in your budget for a new pc or just if you’re looking to upgrade.

    Will Always Love This CPU.

    Ive been using this CPU for a couple years now. it has been absolutely is currently paired with:TUF X57064gb 3600mhz RAMGigabyte 3080CPU usage is low, and temps are genereally low as well, even when using a CPU intensive game.This CPU is my baseline for the computers I build for customers. I will be purchasing this CPU for a long time to come.

    Great CPU for around $200

    Honestly this is a SOLID cpu at a GREAT price.It’s almost as good as the 5800x3d in many games especially if you’re running 1440p with a 70 series card or any mid range cards. If say, you had a 4090, then you’d see around 15-18fps uptick in performance. But with a mid-high range gpu you’re hard pressed to see much gains in 1440p. 1080p ya, you’ll see gains as always.But this cpu is fantastic 👌 for mid-range gaming rig and productivity pc with its 8 cores and high frequency. Editing videos for Youtube and streaming is a breeze with this processor.Please use at minimum a double fan $60 air cooler, or even better an AIO water Cooler 280mm Radiator for this chip. I have a hot room, so I undervolted it. You’ll see many videos on how to do this on YT. I’d recommend it if it’s running hot. I prefer it to stay around 58°-65°c while gaming in a semi hot room. Without unvolting it in a semi hot room it can reach upwards of 77°c while under gaming load.If you’re interested in staying in am4 and on a tight budget. It’s a superb 8 core cpu cpu 👌

    8 Core King – *EDIT* PBO2

    At the time of writing this CPU has only been ‘available’ for about 2 weeks and I’ll admit I got very lucky in getting one on launch day. Most will probably find this hard to find until demand/supply stabilize but if you’re fortunate like me here are some things I have found so far:This CPU is a top performer at it’s tier. There’s a plethora of data at this point in benchmarks about the Ryzen 5000 series and they seem to outscore most of the Intel competitors easily, as well as against the previous Ryzen 3000 series line. Personally I don’t think this alone is a great reason to buy this product currently but I will expand later on value, my previous setup was an 8700K and I felt this ‘worth’ the upgrade for me personally. I use it on a near exclusive gaming PC, with some occasional video rendering and I can see improvement across the board. I play most games at 1440p however, and vs my old 8700k I can tell you the performance gain on average is probably less than 5%. In rendering and workstation benchmarks its much more, to be expected with core count increase.This CPU in my system tends to run HOT. At least hotter than I expected @ 105W TDP. I’m on a MSI Tomahawk x570 with an Arctic Liquid Cooler 2 280mm AIO, and with stock settings stress testing I’m reaching 75 C quickly, sometimes maxing at 85 C depending on the task. I’ve checked my mounting and I don’t think there is an issue. My system is using a Phanteks P500A with high airflow as well. I’ve found examples of others reporting this as well online, and it seems exclusive to the 5800x currently. I’ve done some extended stress testing and it doesn’t seem to thermal throttle so I’m not too worried, while gaming it peaks around 68 C.Overall I’ve had zero stability problems or crashes so far which is better than expected as AMD has been known in recent years as a problematic launch platform with driver/BIOS issues. Hopefully this stays the same!In terms of value this is probably not worth it to most who are interested. The 5600x is (for now) the value/performance king of the new series and the 5900x has notable advantages for only $100 more. I think there is still fantastic value in the R5 3600 as well, especially since it can be occasionally had for around $175. If the price of the 5800x drops to $400 or less in the future it will be become a much more compelling purchase. Consider that this is also the end of the line (supposedly) for the AM4 platform. I think you can make a reasonable argument for 10th Gen Intel due to a potential next gen upgrade capability but who knows if it will be worth the wait.TL;DR: Top performer, value questionable, warm running Ryzen CPU. I’m an enthusiast who wanted to buy into this series before we even knew it was capable, most will find this unnecessary for mid-high tier 1440/4k gaming.*EDIT #1* – For those who are interested, I’ve done more temperature and benchmark and found that enabling ECO Mode in AMD Ryzen Master software is a fantastic way to mitigate high temps. It seems to drop the total power draw from 145w (PBO/OC mode enabled) to about 88w, maintains the same Single-Core score in Cinebench and has virtually no effect on gaming. Heavy multi-core workloads suffer to the tune of about 10% i.e. Cinebench, Handbrake encoding, etc. This is now my default setting, I’ve noticed CPU intense games dip a little, but still higher performing than my old 8700K and temps on average are 20% less. This is now my default setting as odd as that sounds, maintains my fan/pump speeds much lower and therefore quieter and for 90% of the 1440p gaming I see no performance effect. Maybe this will be improved with further BIOS updates but for now this seems to be the safest option.*EDIT #2* At time of writing now I have been using this CPU for about 9 months and I have spent a pretty silly amount of time tinkering with settings, optimizing and looking for possible improvements in my cooling/performance solutions. I am no longer running Eco Mode via Ryzen Master. My BEST CASE results are as follows, YMMV:In my MXI X570 BIOS I’m utilizing the following settings found in Advanced AMD Overclocking:Power limits are Manually set:PPT – 142wTDC – 95AEDC – 120Boost Override – 50mhzCurve Optimizer:Best two Cores NEGATIVE 10 (for me this happens to be core 1 and 7, check in Ryzen Master)All other cores NEGATIVE 25This gives me my best undervolted temps via the new PBO2 update, 30 minutes of Cinebench R23 Multi peaking @ 78C. Average gaming temps are usually 55C-60C depending on the title. With these settings I’m able to come to within 2-3% of my highest overclock scores while not breaching 80C. I’ve tested with hours of runs in game with perfect stability as well.One last update – if you happen to be using the Arctic Freezer 2 280mm AIO – check which revision you have and if its not Rev. 4 then contact Arctic customer support. They will send you an ‘offset’ mounting bracket for the cold plate block that positions it about 1 CM lower on the IHS. Sounds pretty useless but I found with the 5800x this resulted in a much slower heat buildup and better overall temps to about 4-5C. It seems like this gets it more centered on the actual heat producing component of the CPU and also happens to make the cooler mount in general much easier. Thanks ARCTIC!

    Great CPU but not best for gaming

    Wanted to start the review stating firstly, by no means is the cpu bad in anyway at all. I previously had the r5 3600 for around 3 years and decided since this was on sale mine as well upgrade to get more longevity out of my pc. As a gamer I really recommend the 5800x3d model instead but if you are able to get this on sale for around $200 like I did and have a older cpu like the r5 3600 then this purchase will still be great value even in 2024. The memory sync feature that you can activate in the bios is a nice fps booster and overall compared to my old cpu I did notice a boost of around 15 to 20fps in most of my titles, sometimes even 30fps which is huge on the grand scheme of things. Overall good buy on sale, would recommend the 3d version for gamers but the non 3d will still do the trick just fine. 7/10

    Great cpu

    I used this in my first build and it’s been great so far. For a little reference, it can play modern games like helldivers 2 just fine with multiple windows open

    He’s A Hot-Head, But He’s Manageable…Even On Air

    *********************************************UPDATE 5/26/2022****************************************************I just switched out that air cooler I had with a Dark Rock Pro 4 and changed some settings. Dropped PPT to 105, down from 115. Left TDC and EDC the same. Set Boost Override back to Auto. Set an all core negative offset of -20 instead of my previous settings. My new Cinebench R23 scores are Single Core: 1587, Multicore: 15102. New temps got me idling in the mid to low 30’s, during the multicore bench I never hit 80c. Extremely satisfied with this chip. No need for an AIO at all.*************************************************************************************************************************I got a pretty bad one here. Some people are lucky to get a cool running chip, most of us get fire breathing dragons in a box. You’ve heard the horror stories, but I’m here to tell you it’s not bad at all, with a few minor tweaks. I use it with an IC Thermal Graphite Pad and a measly mid ranged CoolerMaster air cooler. Initially, I was idling around 76c and easily hitting 95c while gaming. After heavy research, I found countless people with my exact same thermals but they were running thermal grizzly paste and 360mm AIOs, so it definitely wasn’t a “me” problem. I was hitting over 90c after half a second in Cinebench R23 though, so we had to do something about that regardless of how hot this chip is expected to run lol.Well, I fixed everything with a few tweaks to my BIOS and PBO2 settings, and to add a cherry on top I bought 2 140mm Slient Wings fans from beQuiet! to add to the ceiling of my case, where previously there were none. Now I idle around 41c and game around 63c, never reaching 85c in Cinebench r23 after an hour, and the climb there is now considerably slow. Here’s what I did:1. Installed Ryzen Master in order to locate to 2 fastest cores.2. In my BIOS settings I dropped PPT to 115 (down from 142), TDC to 80, EDC to 90, Boost Override to 200Mhz with a scaler of 10x.3. In Curve Optimizer (BIOS) I set a (Negative) -5 offset to my 2 fastest cores, and -10 off to all my other cores.4. I set a thermal limit (In BIOS as well) of 85c so that the chip isn’t allowed to cross that threshold.5. Ran a series of tests using Cinebench and CPU-Z, and gaming all day non stop to test for stability. It’s as solid as a mountain.I know AMD said the chip WANTS to hit 90c and that it’s ok, but I’m sorry my PC isn’t a space heater. I live in the Caribbean with no AC and it’s already hotter than satan’s balls out here. So how’s my performance now you ask? Well my 2 fastest cores easily boost to 5.05Ghz while gaming etc, 5 other cores all hit 4.9Ghz, and the worst core hits 4.7Ghz. In Cinebench r23 my single core score is 1575 (which, if you’ve been paying attention, is pretty incredible considering my circumstances). My multicore score takes a hit though with all cores at 4.2Ghz during the test, I got a score of 14402, which again isn’t bad at all considering my situation.Overall I’m happy. I’m not hitting 15500 in multicore like some people who won the chip lottery and have 360mm water coolers, but it’s way more than enough for my gaming and video editing. My 2700X, which was what I upgraded from was amazing and had a multicore score of around 10000, so this is a major upgrade regardless. So my single core performance is as good as anyone else’s, and my multicore performance takes a slight hit, but now my 5800X runs over 30 degrees cooler. You can’t beat that trade off. So in closing, If I can run this chip at decent temps with the parts I just mentioned, nobody should be having problems tbh. Just takes a little know-how. I know I can get even better temps and performance if I keep tweaking, but like Shikamaru Nara, I’m too lazy and see that as being a total drag, and I’m content with what I have.

    Monster CPU

    I’ve been running this thing all-core at 4825 MHz with curve optimizer since I bought it in September. I can go beyond that but don’t want to take any chances, the only time it crashed was when I tried to run all-core 5.1 GHz. Running it with a 6700 XT, so one software program for CPU and GPU . This CPU handles 1440p gaming like a champ. Scored 16006 on cinebench all-core with no other overclock dials tweaked. At first it would run hot but when I switched to an AIO that is no longer an issue, it’s a Cooler Master 240 Illusion. Recommended

    Overall great CPU!

    I have been using this CPU since near release and it has been working flawlessly for my tasks, streaming and gaming. It is good now that prices have come down and they go on sale quite often. A 5800X3D would be a way better upgrade if you own a 3000 series cpu or older if you have an extra $130 to spend over the 5800X which will give you better gaming performance at the cost of lower clock speeds and even more heat.It is a great cpu but does produce a bit of heat than can be lowered with some undervolting!

    Extremely powerful, an absolute game changer

    Since installing this CPU I have found my games are just that much more enjoyable. I had been using a Ryzen 7 1700X so it was quite the leap and has now fully unlocked my RTX 2060 and really resolved my bottleneck. Next I will upgrade the GPU but it’s not super necessary yet. I am cooling this CPU with a Deep Cool AIO. No BIOS update was necessary also. Pretty much plug and play. It performs magnificently.

    I bought this to update my daughter’s computer which was beginning to experience lag issues during some games. I had tried upgrading the memory but still experienced the issues. This processer fixed all of that.Take note that you should identify your motherboard and verify that it will work with your current Bios as this processor requires some motherboards to update your bios before installing, otherwise the pc will not boot at all.You will also need to install a high performance CPU FAN or liquid cooling.

    A powerhouse contender but with a hot temperament!

    Let me start out by saying that I upgraded from an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X since I was lowest on the totem pole for compatibility with Win11. By getting this 5800X I’d be in the big leagues so to speak and with the Deepcool CASTLE 360EX AIO cooler I thought my temps would have been lower than they are…so I thought.There’s over 13K reviews on this so I’ll keep mine short and to the point. While I thought that I wanted the best processor for my motherboard I wasn’t quite thinking of all the angles at that given time. This being a 105W processor it’s gonna run hot and maybe I had set my sights a little too high, maybe I should have opted for the Ryzen 7 5700X which is rated for 65W and would have been much cooler. I really don’t think the difference would have been that noticeable but I digress.In the interim I’ve found that setting the power plan in Win11 to Ryzen Balanced mode and setting my fan curves up at a performance mode level. I also had to disable Corsair iCUE running in the background which controlled all of my RGB in my case. My temps at idle used to be 44-47°C with the iCUE active, they are now 38-41°C so that’s quite a big difference. While gaming they are on average around 67°C +/- 1-5°C.All-in-all while I am satisfied with my purchase, I think I would have been more so with the 5700X. For those looking to upgrade and considering this processor you might give that some thought.~Happy Gaming!

    Bueno pero no lo que esperaba

    A pesar de tener una refrigeracion AIO 360mm, este procesado en reposo no baja de 45-50 grados celcius, normalmente en procesadores ryzen estaba por debajo de 38 siempre, a maxima capacidad llega a los 90-92, pero lo mas extraño es que cuando abro cualquier carpeta, pestaña, lo que sea, ya alcanza 72 grados, solo viendo youtube tiene temperaturas muy elevadas.

    Upgraded from Ryzen 5 3600 and it is a noticeable improvement. More cores and better overvlocking power. It gets hot so I got a AIO for it and now it stays under 60C. Idle temps are 30C and I over clocked it to 4700hz and 1.25v easily and so far it’s running perfectly.

    Fast and Hot. Good Processor though.

    I upgraded from a Ryzen 5 2600X to this Ryzen 7 5800X hoping to see some really big improvements in my CAD station. No issues with the processor itself. It does what it supposed to but in my application, I did not see the performance gains I was hoping for. I am sure it has more to do with the way my software utilizes the cores so I won’t ding AMD for that. Is my computer faster, sure it is, just not night and day. I guess the old 2600X was better than I though it was. What I was not prepared for were the changes needed to go from a 65Watt processor up to the 105Watt category. I had an AMD Prism Spire cooler but I quickly realized it wasn’t going to be enough for the new processor. I am not gaming, but I am running CAD software and I usually have 2 browsers open with a dozen tabs on each as well as Slack for inter-office communications. The original cooler was running 75% speed or more most of the time. It sounded like the machine was about to take flight sometimes. After one day it was clear a new cooler was in my future. I eventually settled on the very large and expensive (but quiet) Noctua NH-U12A cooler. Now the machine is quieter than the old processor with the Spire cooler but the cost to get there ended up way over my original budget. In hindsight, I would have just avoided the 105Watt processor. If I had dropped back one level to the 65Watt class processor, I wouldn’t have noticed the performance difference and I would not have had to invest a small fortune in cooling. In the end, my machine performs well and is quiet but I did learn my lesson about buying more than I needed.

    This is what you need

    Was able to catch one of the preorders using one of the many stock notification apps. Originally supposed to ship mid-December but Amazon kept moving up the ship date up. Actually received it on November 30. Was a nice surprise. Like other comments, it was shipped in a flimsy Amazon white bubble bag. Not ideal for such an expensive package. The end of the CPU box was partially crushed, but the seal was not broken and the end with the CPU was not messed up. So luckily no issues.I have an Aorus Elite WiFi mobo. I had updated to bios version F31i, and the new processor would not post. The case fans and GPU fans just spun and nothing happened. I put my 3800xt back in and reinstalled a newer bios just released, F31l. It worked that time.Coming from a 3800xt, I could tell I was getting more frames in the games I play that are more CPU demanding. I didn’t bench it so I have no idea how much better. All the benchmarking tests also showed significant increases from the 3800xt. But to be honest, I don’t think it changes anything noticeable in terms of normal game play. This upgrade was more about the latest and greatest.At stock with no OC, max single thread is 4859 MHz. Multi thread hits 4541 MHz.Cinebench single core rendering showed 1579 pts. Multi core 15,216 pts.I now have this paired with a new RTX 3080. I have to say this combination is the cat’s wiskers. During intense gaming sessions at ultra settings, the GPU is hitting 100% utilization and the CPU 86% max, with threads 86-100% utilization. Temperature max is 68-70C using a 240mm water cooler. Now my 144hz monitor stays at near max frames for most games…at 1440p on very high and/or ultra settings. I also have a Samsung 980 PRO NVMe SSD, so maybe PCIe 4.0 in all 3 components helps performance too.Right now I am using 2x8gb 3200 cl14 G Skill RAM. I have a new 2x16gb 3600 cl14 set on order that G Skill just released. Hoping this will be the “sweet spot” for these new 5000 processors I keep reading about, as I really don’t feel comfortable trying to manually time using the Ryzen timing calculator.There’s no doubt this is one of the best gaming CPUs out right now. If you’re wondering whether or not to upgrade, just do it. Get this one or any of the new 5000 series processors. Regardless what you have now you’re going to see an improvement.

    be smart and update BIOS (updated 5.20.23)

    I got this for a build I did for my 9-year old son. It works great to run multiple programs, play games (Wow Dragon flight, Destiny 2, Halo), and so on. Just make sure you have really good cable management with great airflow. I got an extra expensive radiator with two 120mm fans plus the one 120mm fan that came with the case, but it was getting too hot. My case can accommodate a total of 2 140mm fans with 2 120 mm fans (or 5 120mm), so I added two 140mm fans to improve airflow. It was shutting down due to temperatures, so hopefully this will fix the issue.UPDATED 5.20.23 – Be sure to update your motherboard BIOS and (in my case) you might want to allow it to optimize settings on it’s own. I thought my CPU was running too hot due to poor cable management, a lousy case design, or maybe a bad CPU cooler. However, after trouble shooting everything I found the BIOS needed an update. Once that was done, I tried customizing some of the settings. Performance/temps improved, but were still sub-optimal. I then went in the BIOS and let it run a self diagnostics with self optimization of settings. I didn’t over clock anything, or change anything from the optimization settings … now it runs quite at roughly 42C and GREAT performance.

    5800X Review: A Top Performer with High Temps, High Value – A Comprehensive Analysis by a User

    As a user of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core and 16-thread Unlocked Desktop Processor, I have been using it for around a year now. My system consists of a Ryzen 5800X, an Asus X570-Pro board, 32GB of 3600mhz G.Skill CL16 memory, an EVGA G3 Supernova 850 watt 80+ Gold PSU, an EVGA RTX 2070 Super GPU, a Cooler Master NR600 Case, and a Noctua NH-D15 Chromax Black Edition CPU cooler. I have exceptional airflow and cooling in my case, and I have not had a single issue with the chip after a year of use. I simply enabled DOCP on my memory and PBO on my chip, and the chip boosts to 5.1ghz when using 2-3 cores and runs around 4.75-4.95ghz while gaming. My temps are around low 30s at idle and 55-65C while gaming, and the chip runs super fast and super cool.I upgraded from a Ryzen 3600 to the 5800X, and I gained anywhere from 10 fps to over 20 fps on some games, playing at 1440P. The chip is the best one I’ve ever used and owned, and I paid the MSRP of 450 for it and don’t regret it at all. It runs smoothly with no crashes or issues, and it never breaks 70C while daily use/gaming, no matter how long. It has enough cores and threads to handle streaming and multitasking while gaming.However, my CPU runs hot, with stress testing reaching 75C quickly and sometimes maxing at 85C, even with an Arctic Liquid Cooler 2 280mm AIO and a Phanteks P500A case with high airflow. I’ve found others reporting the same issue, and it seems exclusive to the 5800x. I’ve done some extended stress testing, and it doesn’t seem to thermal throttle, but while gaming it peaks around 68C. I’ve tried to mitigate the high temps by enabling ECO Mode in the AMD Ryzen Master software, which drops the total power draw and maintains the same single-core score in Cinebench, with virtually no effect on gaming.After 9 months of using the CPU, I have spent a lot of time optimizing and looking for ways to improve my cooling and performance. My best case results are by utilizing the settings found in the Advanced AMD Overclocking section of my MXI X570 BIOS. I have manually set the power limits, and I’ve used the curve optimizer to set negative offsets to my cores. This gives me the best undervolted temps, with 30 minutes of Cinebench R23 Multi peaking at 78C and average gaming temps of 55C-60C.Overall, the 5800X is a top performer in its tier, but its value is questionable, and it runs warm. The 5600x is currently the value/performance king of the new series, and the 5900x has notable advantages for only $100 more. The 5800X is also the end of the line for the AM4 platform, and with the price being high, it may not be a compelling purchase for most people. However, for those who are enthusiasts and want to buy into this series, it is a great upgrade.
