    My 5950x failed after only 8 months of standard usage

    I'm almost at 2 years now with my 5950X. Thing is a tank and still works great. Moved form PBO to all core OC on mine a month ago and it works amazing for gaming and productivity even in 2023! In all of my years building PCs, I'm not sure I have had any Intel or AMD CPU go bad on me... and...

    what do you do with your old CPU when you upgrade?

    I keep them all... PC's get repurposed, eventually stored after about 2 or 3 generations of "hand-me-down" moves. I have a horrible habit of keeping all of my electronics anymore... lol. My last gaming PC goes to my Wife, then that PC she had get hooked up to our entertainment center for...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    It is amazing monitor... games have never looked better at 4K. If you have the card to drive it, its an absolutely smooth experience too. Enjoy.

    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    I mean, I heard it all the time when my 3090 was in my main PC under load... I can put it under the same 4K load in the other pc now and I can't hear it at all... and I have tinnitus, so I HEAR it. If it's there, it is very quiet. My 4090 make noise in my current setup now under load; I'm half...

    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    Sooooooooooooooooooooo, what were they?!?! lol. My old 3090 is in my X99 PC now, and has 0 coil whine, but had it in my gaming setup. So maybe the power supply could be a cause....

    Moving from 5800X3D to an Intel 13900K build. Worth it?

    Put an all core OC on that guy, and you will feel even LESS need... ;)

    4090 almost no performance loss at 75% power limit sweet spot

    Thats the thing tho, in games I have even at 4k that are not pushing the card hard, the power usage is well below 400W to begin with, sometimes 350W or thereabouts. Id think on these cards, you would only be limiting based on if you are hitting your monitors refresh rate, but just use an FPS...

    4090 almost no performance loss at 75% power limit sweet spot

    I get why people have done this in the past with temps, or if rendering for work... but for gaming on these cards, whats the point? I maxed my power slider and voltage to the max, with 3045Mhz core and +1250mhz on the memory and it never gets above 54C gaming for hours on end at 4K. Even at...

    Best CPU's of all time?

    First, holy freaking NECRO! lol. Second, wow, so many to choose from honestly, I guess the ones I remember the most (aside from modern CPUs I have used)... - My old Athlon XP 2800+ Barton (which had the 512Kb of cache vs. 256Kb), I still have that in my retro box to this day running at 2.5Ghz...

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    I just run the benchmark man, I dunno after that... lol. All joking aside, I think both your tests show the benefit of the Vcache, even though it is much smaller at 4K even with a 4090. Your lows are much higher than mine, even if your average frames are slightly lower. Think about it; you...

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    Here is my CP2077 run.... I'd be curious what your min FPS is in that game vs mine... It should be higher than mine if it is a 3DVcache game, even if the average is slightly lower.

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    I'll run CP2077 this evening for you... I can re-run SOTTR at Stock video card settings if you want. +1350Mhz on the memory is pretty good OC on your end though (and has the best FPS boost in my testing), but yeah, not sure my core at 3045Mhz will make a 15FPS difference, but maybe that...

    Anyone “upgraded” from 5900X to 5800X3D for gaming?

    All settings under "Graphics" were set to the maximum possible for reference. I have posted PBO vs. All Core OC for comparison. All core OC blows PBO out of the water if you look at the minimum and maximum frames rendered. I guess even the average was much better too for the CPU. PBO was...

    AMD Intentionally Held Back from Competing with RTX 4090

    Best part of this article is the fact my 4090 doesn't even pull more than 500W full load... lol. Almost happy they over-engineered the cooling; this thing never even passes 52C gaming with a full overclock on it with max power and voltage.

    Sold my 5900x... But which X3D and when.

    I'd just wait and snag exactly what you want... I doubt the shortage will last long. I don't think a ton of people are going to jump from LGA1700 or AM4 to this setup. Older setup will likely be more compelled, but I imagine in a few weeks' availability will be easier to come by.
