    5900x boost question

    I'm still waiting for my 5900x to finish my build. so I could be talking out of my ass. However I saw this posted on MSI forums: CPU Frequency Cannot Go Turbo Frequency Note. This issue should be common issue on all motherboard vendor This issue happens when using Ryzen 5000 CPU + PBO...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    I will just use kitchen wrap afterwards... LOL... I saw some a post on reddit by a poor guy receiving DOA Strix 3080... With such a high demand I'm sure QA is even worse than usual...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Finally my two 3080 TUF OC came through from my local Canada Computers store. Since they've extended replacement returns to end of January, do you guys think I should still do sanity test both for DOA? Both of them are xmas gifts for my kids. Maybe it would be better to find out DOA...

    I think that's a good news. From my understanding people who never received emails were getting first shipments.

    just got off chat with B&H for the order for two 5900x. I received Dec 21ETA email about 2 weeks ago. Today I was told they expect to fill my order the first quarter of 2021. Hopefully January. FECK....

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

    Gigabyte users are having problems too. Fecking 2020.... You would be surpised how many users are pissed off at manufacturers and are switching brands. I've seen at least few peeps switching from MSI to Asus or Gigabyte... LOL. Another interesting bug that impacts everyone is this one...

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

    Good to hear :-) I think it is early BIOS adaptation issues. Maybe it is blessing in the sky I didn't get my 5900x yet LOL. This thread lists few current BIOS issues. It includes Whea errors (most likely caused by RAM settings). Windows Event Viewer Error (Even System Restart) Note. This...

    Thanks, did you get any prior emails from B&H? I got the Dec 21 email and my order status stills says: Backordered. I ordered at 12:40am EST.

    Can Asus 3080 TUF fit on Asus TUF x570 mobo? chipset heatsink concerns.

    Thank you for your feedback. I went with Tomahawk, due to better VRMs and temps. Zen3 CPUs seem to be very temp/power sensitive (based on user's feedback) and figured every bit helps. TUF was my second choice and it would work better with iCUE ecosystem.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    any updates from B&H? If I'm not mistaken few 5600x orders went out? I got my email I my 5900x should ship out on Dec 21, does anyone know if that still holds or it will be pushed to 2021?

    X570 Tomahawk 2.5GBE NIC issues

    I'm not sure what CPU my switch uses. I will report to this thread once I get my hands on 5900x (one day) :cry: to finish my builds. I assume you have the latest Realtek drivers and AMD chipset drivers.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Did you try to do it via BIOS? Thats what I'm planning on doing with my tomahawk x570 when I get my 5900x. I'm currently doing this on my asrock mobo. A little painful at the beginning during testing but it is one of these things.... set it and forget it afterwards :-)

    my friends from south, you are so lucky... at least you have Amazon and Best Buy to buy from..... Up north, Amazon Canada never had any zen3 CPUs in stock and Best Buy Canada is not selling them. We are at the mercy of local computer stores (huge waiting queues) or Newegg Canada (overpriced)...

    someone posted B&H shipped his 5600x. He never received email from B&H with estimated delivery (Dec 21 or 2021). Was anyone else lucky? I assume they got some 5600x, maybe 5800x stock. I don't think they got any stock wiht big boys 5900x/5950x.

    Looks like AMD fixed PBO 5800X boost set up to 5050 Mhz with AMD Curve Optimizer

    So based on your testing. What would be best config to keep zen3 in check with temps? I don't mind losing a little bit on performance. I will be gaming at 1440p, so I will be GPU bottleneck anyways.

    Gtx 3080 asus tuf or gigabyte vision? (If and when is stock)

    Are there any 3080 Vision owners? I believe TUF has much better POSCAPS configuration. I really like the looks of Vision, however based on my understaning TUF has better HSF, components and it runs cooler and quieter(I assume). I'm planning to undervolt either one a tiny bit to make it a tad...

    you can backorder them at ME or CC. From what I've seen 5800x is the easiest to get, followed by 5600x. The 5900x/5950x are the hardest to get. Amazon Canada never had them in stock yet. Good luck hunting :)

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    new 151 bios (beta) is up. Support AMD SAM(SMART ACCESS MEMORY) function Also I think it fixes XMP > 3200 RAM issues Happy testing ;)

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

    thanks for the info and sharing with the rest of us. Much appreciated !!!! :) As for RAM latnecy it shows you have 61ns which is pretty good. I'm sure you could even get it better. Maybe try using the famous Zen Ram Calculator.

    I'm thinking the same. Since I'm planning to keep PC for +5 years with mid-cycle GPU upgrade I'm willing to wait for 5900x. I still believe 5600x and 5800x (a little overpriced) are great buys! :) If my wait/hunting for 5900x turns into 2021, I will buy 5600x (If that will be avaiable).

    Add to this some store employees scam..... yesterday (I'm in Canada) I had a chance to grab two 5800x from local store (and online), instead I shared this with others on reddit who were able to buy them. I rather wait an extra month or so and get what I want.

    thanks for the video. That's awesome... I'm sorry but how do you get HDMI stats displayed on your TV (I own B9)? Also which flag is to show VRR on or off? (I'm sure it is there LOL). I'm carious how well AMD curve optimizer will work on 5900x. Also I'm happy you are using very similar...

    Congrats! and thanks for sharing it. Like you said you probably have a golden 5800x with a lot peeps having problems with high temps. How is this comparing to AMD's Curve Optimzier? Also how is your B9 OLED with 3080? any hdmi 2.1 issues? can you game at 4k 120Hz gsync HDR? I'm still...
