somthing not right there buddy. i only have a -25 curve, i used a PA120 with fans set not to pass 1000rpm and i see 62c on a singlr pass and 66c and a 10min run of R23
IF I use eco mode then my max temp in Cinebench R23 is 74 °C, Maybe I will change the paste it on the weekend.

Ordered a 5800x3D recently as it was dropped in price.

Should arrive on Monday.

I'm currently sporting a 5800x with a beQuiet Shadow Rock 3 but tempted to take this oppurtunity to upgrade the cooler.

5800x already runs hot on the Shadow Rock and my office tends to have higher ambient due to it being very well insulated.

Any good cooler recommendations? Don't mind AIO or Air, but ideally less than £100.
hi did you see any noticable improvement swapping to an x3d. thinking about doing it myself

on my sons system in the sig, i noticed a massive difference in games that are CPU bound, but also a good fps boost on others

Battlefield there was a good 30FPS uplift thats a none cpu bound game
Squads is a very CPU bound game, it went from around 80fps to 150fps

Nice. Thanks for the reply fella

im assume your going to be at 1440p or higher with a xtx gpu?

The difference at 1080 will be more noticeable than 1440 but when i upgraded from a 5800x to an 5800x3d about 12 months ago at 1440 i noticed a bump in FPS but its all dopnt to the game in question.
i lot of sits say and average at 10% but games like Squads and starfield get a much bigger bump as there horribly CPU optimized.

Stolen photo haha @humbug

my son moved from a 5600 so as you can see about 30fps on average

Looking around, I decided to purchase the Thermalright Phantom Spirit which is the successor to the Peerless Assasin.

Couldn't say no at £30 considering it outperforms the Noctua NH-D15 in certain scenarios!

Managed to sell my 5800X and the cooler for £130 so all in all the whole upgrade cost me £130 which I'm very happy about!

Thanks for the reply. Tbh what I got for the regular x selling second hand paid for just over half of the x3d and as the machine is only for gaming I thought why not before I change socket

When I do do pancake it's at 1440p and it's only Squad 44. But mostly I play DCS in vr with the q3.

I also recently upgraded from the 5800x to 5800x3d and feel it was a worthy upgrade.

Primarily because of the uplift in VR.

My mediocre MSI B450 Mortar (non max) has seen a Ryzen 2600, 3600, 5800x and now the 5800x3d. AM4 has been a great platform!

Looking at the benches, the 3900XT is significantly faster in productivity with its extra cores. What sort of real-world areas would I notice that? I use Photoshop occasionally if that counts.

Think it might be worth waiting for the 5800x3d to come down in price a little? £270-280 is a touch steep!

Or maybe try the 5700x3d its cheaper but just 5-10% slower.

Unless you do rendering than you wont notice the extra cores - most consumer software is still stuck on single core performance(excel/word etc)
280 for 5800x3d is too much now, seen it new for 250 not so long ago.
