    Not 100% sure. Somee games i play were/are single core based. I never really got to the bottom of it, it was really noticeable though. At first I thought it was just in my head, trying to justify the upgrade, then i noticed others were finding the same thing.

    Maybe it lifts up FPS lows. I'm sure there are more tech savvy types on here that can explain it. :)

    Hi guys,

    I'm finally upgrading my 5820k to the 3800x.

    If my budget for a motherboard was around £350, is the Taichi the best board in this price range and does anyone know when those G.skill Neo 3600 ram sticks will be released?

    Thanks

    Ah, maybe I was reading the T&Cs for the additional gifts beyond just the cooler.

    @Gibbo Are there any updates at all on the 3800x? Ordered on the 7th July around 4pm and believe I should be within the first batch of 3800x that have been assigned to OCUK going with your previous posts a few days ago.

    I understand this is not just OCUK as no one seems to have their hands on a 3800x as yet, makes you wonder why they are so reluctant to have these in consumers hands though.

    Was really hoping for a delivery before the weekend and if I need to I would upgrade my order to the 3900x, I notice on the site that these are due in tomorrow but have these all been pre-allocated to customers on Pre-Order or are there going to be surplus for new customers ?

    The msi x570-a pro is a good shout. 8+2 vrm, dual m.2. No WiFi but should be more than good enough for an 8 core.

    Looking forward to see his results also. If one of you can ping me when it is posted, would be appreciated.

    I have verified the information. Windows reports 4.25GHz all cores, but Ryzen Master is reporting parked cores and speeds as low as 200MHz. This is on a 3900X with stock BIOS F3 settings on an X570 Aorus Master.

    I also ordered the cheap one, waiting for shipping :) But I cant seem to find stock of the 3900X or 3800X anywhere.

    I'm using 3700x with PBO at the moment, I find that it maybe gives best performance over 4.1 all core BUT the heat is up to 10 degrees higher due to using higher voltages at load such as 1.46v

    It wasn't "mis-priced". I asked them. It was a short run deal.

    What use is a cheap price if you didn't get a pack of Haribos?
