Music production and gaming 9/25/2019 10:21:14 PM

Pros: This thing is great for music production. I can have lots of plugins going in my DAW with no latency issues for my sound interface. I also game on it and game in VR with the valve index. Its paired with a 2080ti and all is right in the world!

Cons: None

Overall Review: I love it. Works great for my use case and have not seen temp issues others have described. My temps are well under control via Corsair 360 AIO cooler

Did Exactly What I Wanted! 4/14/2019 6:18:52 AM

Pros: Delid and Relid process is easy for this processor. Powerful and with the proper nerdism you can achieve much cooler temperatures. I bought a pure copper IHS from Poland to relid with, I also used liquid metal. I can overclock the chip I received to 5Ghz, but run it normally around 4.5 Ghz. No crashes, no problems, amazingly fast.

Cons: None, I knew what I wanted and how I wanted to orchestrate the overclock and cooling.

Overall Review: I would recommend this to other geeks and nerds that are willing to go the extra mile to achieve something interesting and great in a build.

Works Decently! 3/18/2019 1:56:34 PM

Pros: Fast! Overclockable! Had 0 issues!

Cons: I wish The rendering wasn't so terrible, but that is a dynamic issue. Also isn't what I bought the CPU for.

Overall Review: Still figuring a bunch of stuff out as my build is still new. As far as this CPU goes I am very happy and glad I bought it.

Cool Story here, Bro 2/4/2019 6:22:06 PM

Pros: When I bought this CPU last Winter, I got 8 Intel cores for right around $475. That's not such a hot value at this moment with the Ryzen 2000 series processors and Threadripper2.

At the most my CPU usage across all threads has been 50%. The temps are pretty good at stock speeds.

With these x299 processors you can still wring a little bit more single threaded performance out of them than you can with the 12nm Ryzen parts, but not by much. You can overclock in a way that give your 2 core Turboboost a higher frequency, you can play with the cache, and the faster RAM with a lower cas latency will help. It's not going to get you over enough to make it worthwhile.

My 7820x is a Silicon Lottery loser. It needs 1.227v to run stable at 4.6ghz with AVX -3 and AVX 512 -5. It's delidded and the delid job was rechecked but while running the more stressful AVX Stress Test the temps can reach 95c (Which does not include Realbench). Before I delidded the CPU would constantly throttle unless I scaled back to 4.5ghz and used a lighter stress test.

Cons: Well, when you consider what Threadripper 2 can do, I don't see any reason to buy into the x299 platform.

Overclocking the Uncore is very important thanks to Intel Mesh Interconnect. Basically the reason these 2066 processors aren't all that great compared to Coffee Lake is the same reason AMD has such problems with their Ryzen processors. To fix things with Ryzen you just need exceptional RAM. With these x299/2066 parts you need to overclock the cache.

Overall Review: Funny story on how I got this. I bought a GTX 1080ti card on it's release day to replace a Crossfire RX 480 8gb setup that wasn't cutting it at 4k. Then I decided to try my hand at Ethereum mining, right before it got hot and I have been mining with those cards since the beginning of April of 2017. Also, I was able to find a few more Radeon cards at dirt cheap prices on the used market. Somehow I managed to stay ahead of the Supply and Demand curve last year by being patient and looking for parts at the right time.

When Ethereum value blew up last December I cashed out my coins and I bought the 7820x and an Asus RVIA board. In fact, I had enough money to buy the 7900x but I couldn't find a reason to pay double for it. The extra PCI-E lanes and 2 more cores weren't enough. When newegg put this CPU on sale and had a combo deal with the RVIA, I bit the bullet and went with this instead.

Self Throttles if Hot 1/21/2019 8:13:12 AM

Pros: I'm using this primarily for AI simulations in Linux. It's difficult to manage the cooling properties of the Corsair AIO water pump during the 12 hour runs. This cpu will run all 28 threads at 100% and close to 100 C. It will self throttle to prevent damage. I'm very happy with this chip.

Cons: none
