5800x3d - Worth every penny
Pros: -Same thermal envelope as the 5800x using a corsair h115i Pro XT -maintains its max boost clock -G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) F4-3600C14D-32GTZN - Running at 3800CL4 1:1 just like my 5800x -Could actually run ram at 2000MHZ 1:1 but to many whea errors - 5800x wouldn't even post -Better frame times\lows\average and max FPS in all my games i play over the 5800x - (Including X4 foundations and planetside 2) @ 3440x1440p max settings -MSI X570S ace max BCLK OC now available with newest bios
Cons: None- Yes productivity scores are lower but I only game and that's it.
Overall Review: -Very impressed. Paired with my 6800XT, i used to see massive FPS drops (below 60) in Games like planetside 2 when there are too many things happening on the screen. Now? No drops below 70fps in those same battles. Same with X4 foundations ; used to drop below 40 in places like Nopileos Fortune 2 now it doesn't go below 60 and at times runs at a solid 100fps. This game usually kills the CPU.
