    Quick question for people with 3700x. Everything at auto and stock on my asus prime pro x370. I’m using the stock cooler in low quiet mode. Idle temps are 50c and load prime95 get 85c ish. Is that what you get?

    Why do we refer to those who game as their most demanding task as we were referring to unicorns? There are many, many people who build computers mostly for gaming.

    I got the 9700k a couple of days ago for 320£ with a 150£ Aorus Pro Wi-Fi and I don't feel like a crazy Intel fanboy.

    It's just that today, for gaming, it still makes sense...

    Seems a reasonable conclusion. The 3700X @ £329 for gaming or light mixed load tasks is only very slightly faster than a 3600 at £188.99. In the future those extra two cores on the 3800X might come in handy but as of today in current titles there is little gaming reason to go beyond a 3600 unless you step up to an Intel 9700k or 9900k because they are still on top.

    This bit probably puts it best : https://youtu.be/0GjSiLbCtHU?t=813

    Not at first. I had to post in the customer services forum with my order number and they got one to me by email quickly. Due to the rush, it seems like a few first day buyers were accidentally missed out.

    3600 seems the best value chip and maybe I should of saved the money and gone with that over a 3700x

    Only reason I went with 3700x is that I feel. When the next gen consoles are out, game engines are going to evolve into needing more cores.

    My 3700x is on a Asus Prime Pro X470 with Noctua D15. It idles around 40 and around 70 on load. Your figures sound about right for the stock cooler.

    Just checked the tracking this morning and much to my surprise it says my 3700x has arrived at the depot this morning at 6:14am. So I am defiantly going to try and pick it up tomorrow morning.

    There might be one soon, his 3800x is apparently awesome and worth the price difference (at least in the comments he says he's got all the data, so maybe he will put it in the review)

    Built my system last night and have a weird quirk. In CS:GO, the FPS drops when I stop moving. It actually drops to around 60fps, then when my mouse kicks in goes 200+

    My bios also resets, so it says and keeps losing its settings and defaults. Anyone else got this problem?

    Thanks and it confirms the review results - is that on high? Any chance you can run on ultra too??

    I didn't get mine either guess I need to contact support. I already have gamepass ultimate though so can I even use it?

    Probably not. I expect it’s new customers only. I’m in the same boat.

    Played with my new 3700x yesterday and this thing gets quite hotd doesn't it. Idle whilst doing nothing is around 35c with Noctua cooler but even the slightest load brings temps to 50c. Just browsing Chrome send to show it to 50c.

    Tried playing apex for a bit and cpu hits around 75c but cpu load was like 15%. Dread to think what the temps will be whilst running prime 95

    I want the 3800x, I got the money for a 3800x, but I doubt at 1440p it's a worthy upgrade over a 2700x.

    Any one at this resolution seeing worthwhile gaming gains?

    Should be able to use it. It will just extend your sub by 3 months

    Well lets see what today brings in terms of news on 3800x. Hopefully they will come in, but i am very much doubting it. Seems they have not even left AMD

    Are the 3900x still meant to be arriving/arrived in today still?

    I’ll be watching this thread like a hawk.
    If they come in I’m phoning straight up to upgrade to Saturday delivery.
