Right @ stock CPU but 3800MEM 1:1 none PBO, It's auto/disabled.

Hitting 89.8C degrees and clocks are settling 1 4.125Ghz. A times some cores do 4.100ghz. Power draw sits at 145Watts for CPU Package Power.

The cores are chugging 1.288Volts for 4.125Ghz. These are readings from HWiNFO64 VID values.
SVI2 TFN is reporting 1.312V - 1.337v jumps around depending on load.

I'm a little uncertain which LLC settings I had currently but I think it was Medium for the moment.

Thanks for the share! +Rep. I ordered the 3800x in first place but it took to long so i ordered a 3700x and canceled the 3800x. And after seeing some benchmarks im happy i didnt wait. Dont get me wrong its a good CPU but not that much different compared to a 3700x!

Its almost same as the 3700x so if you still think its not a big jump , it doesnt change for the 3800x

I think AMD quoted 13-15%, so I think by the time all is said and done, it should fall pretty close to where they said it would. I don't think 10-15% gains are worth $400, but I don't think 2700x owners are the target market either.
You are right. I am waiting to see what the 3950X holds and hopefully the BIOS situation will settle down over the coming weeks and we will start to see some more consistent reviews.

Overall I think the performance of these new chips is really good, it is the publicity and the claims about clock speeds and PBO that I have not been too happy about. I am hoping these things will all be resolved soon enough though.

This is pretty much just a gaming rig, infact it's attached to a racing simulator. I really don't see too many games that can properly utilize 24 threads. I foresee that concentration of cores in such a small package being a concentration of heat and a heatsoak that no matter the radiator surface area, the block will get saturated by a lack of surface area, if the goal is higher clocks. I like the size of the Threadripper a lot better when you start to get into that kind of core count, the surface area is a big plus. Companies get better at making these chips as time passes, so I was looking for the best binned chips when purchasing early, for now, specs dictate that would be the 3800X. Infact I would have gone with a 3600X and dropped the 4 threads if it had matched the 3800X clock for clock. I'd rather have 4.4 Ghz on 12 threads than 3.9 Ghz on 60 threads, for pretty much exclusively gaming. Can you get a 3700x that is just as good? Absolutely, though I would say it is far less likely in early production. Basically, it's a bit of a premium for a binned chip, you really should have little chance of a complete lotto fail with a 3800X, IMO.
i totally agree with you, i too went for 3800x for the same reasons and theories you just said

glad to finally find someone who thinks like i do

Duvar If you wanna game, just buy a cheap 3600 and give him fast RAM, and it will not slower than up to the 3900X (including 3800X).
Maybe you can test with the SotTR Demo benchmark @ 720p ultra low and try to beat my FPS from the lil 3600.
But just concentrate on the CPU-Spiel numbers there espescially min Fps and 95%
Added 2 more pics of CB R20, i think its ok 4 a 200$ CPU

It also looks like just about every bench is fixed percentage difference. I call bull****.

Anyway, I put my money where my mouth was and went to Fry's yesterday and got a MSI X570. Pro's and cons, latest AGESA, memory overclocking is great, none of the ASRock BIOS problem, performance increased, lesser threads still cap at 4.475, but all threads stay at 4.3 through entire cinebench runs. Broke 5k on the first Cinebench run. 5051 i think.

Con's BIOS "look" is crap, I can't see a way to avoid "kiddie land" SUPER BOOST 9000!! Click here! bunch of graphical buttons and rookie crap everywhere. You can't even set fan speed parameters without a mouse and using the graph. Everything, i mean Everything runs hotter and higher voltage than the Taichi, base CPU voltage is like 1.49, or something stupid. It drops to 1.39 ish under load, but VRMs, NB, CPU, everything is considerably hotter. I may be able to dial a lot of that down, but seems almost dangerous for default settings if someone didn't know what to look for. Seems like stability was P1, regardless of possible longevity.

I have that 2600x CPU and 16GB of DDR4 that I wasn't a fan of before I bought my B-die, so i figured I'll get another board and when ASRock pulls head out of ass, updates AGESA, I'll do a side by side and use the lesser board on the 2600x for a second machine, I have everything I'll need sitting around, including the cooler that came with the 3800X, my old 1000w Corsair PS, GTX1060 etc etc. Maybe I can get the woman hooked!
I question that video too honestly for many of the same reasons. If it is legit it does show that if you're running a fast but last gen gpu you're likely to get similar gaming fps from many of the games out there. I think you'll notice more of the fps spread when running the latest greatest gpus and beyond that once you push into 1440 regardless of the gpu all the scores tighten up, even with the intel offerings. The second vid is pretty legit though.
