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 - 142w TDC - 95A EDC - 120 Boost Override - 50mhz Curve Optimizer: Best two Cores NEGATIVE 10 (for me this happens to be core 1 and 7, check in Ryzen Master) All other cores NEGATIVE 25 This 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!

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.
