I think it might even draw less than a 5600X.. it literally just sips power. I can run it with just one fan on my cooler, GPU fans at 0, front fans at 300.. it is nice.

F me 33 C on a 360 AIO while playing TWWH3. Minimum FPS 78 used to be like 48 to 65.

Replaced with a pair of Sundara's. These really need break-in. Didn't like them for the first 40 minutes or so but they warmed up noticably after that. They got a bit to go yet.

I would agree I have never seen it go past 1.26V where the best I could with my 5600X and Curve Optimizer was around 1.40

This is the part that I miss the most, I bought 5900X hoping to hit 5GHz, and this gets no where near 5GHz, no overclocking whatsoever :D

Jonesing a bit here..

Also reinstalled windows, back to snappy again, I think..

I bought a few things from Newegg last Thursday night. They should be here Monday or Tuesday. I've had a virtually new Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Hero and an i7 7700K sitting here unused for a couple of years and nobody on the local Craigslist showed any interest so I decided to finally do a slight upgrade on my ancient ASRock Z87 Extreme6/4790K web surfing rig with them (the thing has been running non-stop for 8 years now). I needed some decent DDR4 3200 RAM and found this Mushkin Redline C16 at a great price so I popped for 64GB. Mushkin Enhanced Redline 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model MRC4U320GJJM16GX2 - Newegg.com

I usually only buy G.Skill RAM but I had great luck with Mushkin back in the DDR2 days and decided to give them a shot again.

Since 5 of my rigs have USB C ports I thought it was about time to get a USB C flash drive and this caught my eye as the best bang for the buck (It was $11.99 when I bought it): SanDisk 128GB Ultra USB Type-C Flash Drive, Speed Up to 150MB/s (SDCZ460-128G-G46) - Newegg.com

Finally since all of my large capacity USB 3.0 flash drives have years of use on them I grabbed one of these since it was less than $9: Team Group 128GB C186 USB 3.1 Flash Drive - Newegg.com

Just picked up a 2009 Pioneer VSX919AH-K AV tuner/Amp to run my Wharfedale Crystal 2.4's better sound than the TV speakers and has a host of inputs as my old Sony TV doesn't have an HDMI out it's connected via SPDIF but great sound and no delays in audio so it's all good.

Even AIDA64's cache benchmark takes a dim view of the 5800X3D :laugh:

But oh boy does it deliver. I hope the 5800X3D marks a turning point for my hardware preferences ("hopefully so" -my wallet). Who gives a fuck about Cinebench or AIDA scores - gimme the goods! That's what I'm here for.
I dunno mine doesn't do to bad except in AIDA

I'm obviously not gonna show the AIDA bench because that one you are right and I've basically given up on any kinda RAM OC it will stay at stock because that's all that's stable

To top out benchmark scores X3D is not what you want.
Exactly. For games the X3D is king, but benchmarks are a difference beast.

Gaming benchmarks it is, but not multi threaded benchmarks like R23
Right.

That is a beautiful Receiver! Very nice choice!

Headphones need "break-in"? When did this become a thing?

$82 for 32GB of DDR4 3200 C16 (no RGB, a huge plus for me) Mushkin Redline RAM was such a great deal I bought two sets. When I first got the Z170 mobo and upgraded the BIOS so the 7700K would work in it I had 64GB of G.Skill Trident Z DDR4 3600 C16 installed (that's in my Maximus XI Hero WiFi/9900K rig now) but I wasn't about to spend what that stuff costs today for a web cruising machine (I also do some A/V editing on it when I'm too lazy to use one of my Xeon rigs). No need for 3600 either, 3200 is fine. Compared to what the G.Skill Ripjaws V costs with taxes included I basically got the two USB flash drives for free. Mushkin has always been a good brand, especially their higher-end offerings, and I've never had to RMA anything of theirs that I bought.

This morning I was given a mint 2016 vintage LG M-Disc SATA DVD burner and an AMD FX 4200 for free. I gave the FX 4200 to a friend who builds PC's to donate to charities. The LG burner is going to replace a 13 year old LiteOn in the web surfing rig.

All I have been doing is Gaming since I got mine and I cannot explain how every Game feels "smoother" I will get an FPS like 117 in Iron Harvest and it just sits there. I have thrown about 10 Games at it and it makes me have that smile when you get hardware that makes you feel good.

Hm, that's a lower CPU score than I was expecting - I guess TS doesn't really highlight the gaming strengths of the 5800X3D? My latest TS run for the 5800X (110/95/110, PBO +150MHz, -7/-7/-20x6 cores CO, 1900IF) gave a CPU score of 12005.
My 5950x blows my new 5800X3D away in benchmark but in every Game the 5800X3D just feels "smoother". The fact that it does that literally using half the power is also crazy this chip feels like a 3600 in power draw. My 360 AIO keeps the CPU in the mid 20s at idle.

My Mobo has a “special sauce” setting for the 3D that really helps with MT so that’s actually at least 1000 points over than “stock“ it’s kind of a “PBO/Curve Optimize” combo that lets it stay at 4,4 all core through out an MT load.
I”m still beating you…

Iron Harvest is definitely a game it should shine because I’d expect it to be more CPU intensive. I’m gaming at such a high res and I don’t play any thing that CPU intensive. It’s more of a “last bash” for AM4 for me until Zen 5
I mean all I use my PC for is gaming so it just made sense when I actually needed a new CPU it just had to be that one

Your idle again with other 3D owners temps make me again question my mount. The best I can get in a 360 with a custom EK full nickel block with a EK DDC pump/res combo best I can get is 37 at idle. Now of course while my temps while higher than I’d like are most definitely manageable.

My Mobo has a “special sauce” setting for the 3D that really helps with MT so that’s actually at least 1000 points over than “stock“ it’s kind of a “PBO/Curve Optimize” combo that lets it stay at 4,4 all core through out an MT load.
I”m still beating you…
True, I was just expecting the X3D's gaming advantage to translate more directly to TS than it seems to be doing - I wasn't expecting my 5800X to be close.

Considering you’re already faster out of the box, you‘re running a slight OC on the CPU and IF and I can basically do absolutely “nothing“ to mine except run it stock I’m surprised you’re not ,more impressed that I am beating you despite being “handicapped“

Samsung 50" QN90a (this size has the IPS panel for better off-angle viewing - very necessary for viewing this close). I wish local dimming could be completely disabled as I usually use a black background and the blooming from the mouse pointer is horrible, and moving it across the screen really fast makes it almost disappear (even with local dimming set to low). With the colorful background it's not a problem.

You may wonder why it's right on my desktop so close to me, well, I'm legally blind so... yeah. lol It makes gaming really immersive though.

I'm coming from an old Asus 25" 1080p IPS panel with a claimed 8ms response time and this is better in every way it could be aside from the blooming. I'm getting quite a bit of "dirty screen" effect along the bottom (especially at the corners) but it's not really noticeable unless it's completely black or white.

I haven't had a chance to try VRR because the HDMI cable I have (a new one is on the way) won't let it happen.

The only thing I don't like is that it won't runn 4:4:4 at 10-bit, but maybe that's the cable? I doubt it, but I'll find out tomorrow. For now I'm running in RGB 8-bit with full dynamic range. Text looks really crisp so it doesn't bother me.

Anyway... woohoo... I'm pretty happy with it so far.

Also, that Sony 4k Blu-ray player: I wish people could remember what Blu-rays look like - streaming 4k doesn't even look as good as a regular Blu-ray, and doesn't even approach the same ballpark as a 4k HDR Blu-ray. They look absolutely spectacular even in the not-so-bright "Filmmaker" mode. It's really too bad because the selection of older movies in 4k is really limited because of the lack of interest.

Exactly. For games the X3D is king, but benchmarks are a difference beast.


Right.


That is a beautiful Receiver! Very nice choice!


Headphones need "break-in"? When did this become a thing?
Since their invention, I suppose with considerations for materials used. Planar's are just pretty stiff when new and need a bit of break-in for lower frequencies to become more prominent.

As I said, I was just expecting more of the X3D's gaming advantage to show in TS - an advantage that massively outstrips anything I might have gained by my tweaks. I guess that just shows that TS's CPU workload is still mostly a pure CPU workload and not a gaming-like workload.

Iron Harvest is definitely a game it should shine because I’d expect it to be more CPU intensive. I’m gaming at such a high res and I don’t play any thing that CPU intensive. It’s more of a “last bash” for AM4 for me until Zen 5
I mean all I use my PC for is gaming so it just made sense when I actually needed a new CPU it just had to be that one


Your idle again with other 3D owners temps make me again question my mount. The best I can get in a 360 with a custom EK full nickel block with a EK DDC pump/res combo best I can get is 37 at idle. Now of course while my temps while higher than I’d like are most definitely manageable.
The thing is I got it as part of a month of Humble Choice. Company of Heroes with Mechs so basically Steam Punk Warhammer 40k. I played the Polskia Campaign and enjoyed it. I opened it up and didn't realize that they finished the Game so there is 1000% more content now than when I played before. I am using the Phanteks Enthoo Pro 2 case and have the CPU cooled by an In Win SR36. It is a 360 rad with a huge block that has 2 pumps. That is mounted on the side of the case with the fans mounted as exhaust on the outside. I am using 3 120mm Cooler Master Sickle Flow ARGB fans instead of the cooler's. Those are mounted in the floor of the case to provide cool air from the bottom. The GPU has it's own rad, mounted at the top and the board is cooled directly by 3 140mm fans in the front. I live in Canada and it's October so my ambient is probably in the high teens to low 20s.

True, I was just expecting the X3D's gaming advantage to translate more directly to TS than it seems to be doing - I wasn't expecting my 5800X to be close.

Timespy just runs a short (possibly light AVX) all-core workload for the CPU test, I don't think that's a cache-heavy load. If you're on water I'd expect you're pushing some pretty high all-core clocks; 5800X3D is hard locked to 4450 all-core (and 95% of other loads too), I'm only at around 4300 all-core clocks in Timespy. 5800X3D has worse thermals than 5800X, the silicon spacers aren't doing wonders for it there.

I also run a PPT of 90W (functionally actual PPT is -3W from what is set, on 1206/1207 AGESA for some reason) and it maxes out so if you set a higher PPT you may get better score.

GPU is undervolted at 0.931V so graphics score is nothing to write home about

The magic of the 5800X3D is in those lows and the consistency - it doesn't gain much from PBO (functionally locked even with PBO2 Tuner) and doesn't gain much from RAM/Fabric, so in terms of avg performance it's definitely conceivable you can close the gap considerably with a 5800X
