    5800X all core overclock - 4800Mhz @ 72.5℃ with 1.29v

    PBO is better but its not as sexy. You can get same scores as all core with PBO however you don't loose single core speed with PBo like all core.

    5800X all core overclock - 4800Mhz @ 72.5℃ with 1.29v

    I know about the broad whea errors so it's not surprising however it is damn annoying since for Asus this was supposed to be an area they excelled at. But apparently MSI has got them beat this round. MSI's effectively tackled the whea error and gotten their bios advanced much further along than...

    Stability and overclocking - what do you consider stable

    Wait for a mature bios.

    Logitech G600 $25 - Amazon

    Good price for a mouse with a zillion buttons. The macro setup is pretty easy to use, so much better than the alternatives. You last purchased this item on December 10, 2019. @22.99

    Asus ROG Strix X570-e and 128GB RAM

    Spec at that density isn't 3600mhz, it's 2667mhz iirc. Your ram spec maybe 3600, but not the chip. Be happy with 3200mhz because its a lot better than 2667.

    5800X all core overclock - 4800Mhz @ 72.5℃ with 1.29v

    Die temps in r20 maxed at 68c and r23 was 74c. It is good so far, but asus' bios sucks ass as there's some bug in it capping performance. I can boot at 4000:2000 and w/o any added voltage, it looks stable passes prime but gives a bazillion whea errors. Thus I'm running 3800:1900 stock soc...

    New 5800X Running Hot

    I have good cooling no doubt but on the other hand most others probably have bad cooling or think they're aio coolers are lot better than they actually are.

    Hmm... I wonder what board gerald has? Looks like its coming to no boards. https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?121517-Crosshair-hero-viii-dynamic-oc-switcher#post819805 That aside, you don't need it really. Geralds numbers are only a few points from my basic crap strix-e. And on the...

    Worst 5900X CCD ever?

    Why are you running with manual voltage? I would not be running manual voltage or any kind of overclock with the cooling you have. As for teh variance between CCD temps, did you try re-mounting the block? I suggest you try a few remounts if you haven't already and go from there. The chances of...

    5800X all core overclock - 4800Mhz @ 72.5℃ with 1.29v

    Those are decent though they are not that highly binned but for that cost its an excellent value. With a lot of volts you can run those at 3800 at cas 14. I have used a set for a lil bit. They clocked slightly easier than my g.skill 3600cas16 ram.

    5800X all core overclock - 4800Mhz @ 72.5℃ with 1.29v

    Ah sorry mate, I was looking in the default place below discrete clocks but I see now your effective clocks are bottom right. I've seen one setup that was mid 48ns. It was using the royal 4400c16 8gb dimms tightened down quite a bit. I'm not sure that its worth it all that work for a few ns...

    5800X all core overclock - 4800Mhz @ 72.5℃ with 1.29v

    Doh, I just went thru your other thread. In your video you disabled effective clocks in hwinfo. PSA for all users, the only thing you should be looking at are effective clocks. Core clock (aka discrete clocks) display is meaningless as it just shows what could be called, but is not what the cpu...
