Nice deal, im basically waiting for OCuk to drop it a little more - then im buying onePicked up a 5950X for £400 which is a pretty decent deal but is an older stepping going by the date code. Not sure whether it's worth testing.
Can't see anything really conclusive about the B2 stepping being superior, just vague single sample tests.
I was using the single-fan version (D15S ?) with my 5900X for a while.Anyone using a Noctua NH-D15 with their 5900x/5950x or other air cooler? How do you find the temps with air cooling?
What cooler are you using now? I assume you have change it.I was using the single-fan version (D15S ?) with my 5900X for a while.
Stayed very cool at stock. I tinkered with PBO / Cinebench and found the cooler started struggling over about 185w. (24C ambient in a Pure Base 500DX)
I moved my CPU's around so the 5900x is uninstalled right now. (Going into my wifes sim PC once I get another motherboard)What cooler are you using now? I assume you have change it.
Seem like going down the AIO route may seem best to prolong the life of the cpu.I moved my CPU's around so the 5900x is uninstalled right now. (Going into my wifes sim PC once I get another motherboard)
My 5950X was under a Corsair 115 280mm AIO and it was good up to about 210w in my Corsair 500D case.(airflow is just okay in that case)
PBO + Curve Optimiser FTW.Have recently upgraded to a 5950x from a 3950x (only messed with memory timings)
My main use is rendering 1080p videos, would it be worth me going down the PBO/Curve Optimizer route or a manual overclock? I never messed about with settings on the 3950x as temperatures were mid 70's on a 360mm aio at stock.
Only thing changed in BIOS atm is enabling DOCP and temps are sitting in the low 60's.
I'm guessing Ryzen Master and running the "start optimizing" all cores is best ran before doing anything?
I have the 5800x and been thinking about upgrading to either the 5900x or 5950x. The pc is used for Photoshop and Premier Pro
Running 32g ram and rtx 2700
Worthwhile upgrade and if so much advantage of the 5950 over the 5900?
Isn't Adobe software notorious for only use one or two threads like something from 2003?
The extra cores are only going to be worth it if you actually use them
They have steadily improved multithreading support. In some areas single threaded performance is still king though:
Until recently, Intel enjoyed the benefit of being the only CPUs that could be used for hardware accelerated encoding/decoding of H.264 and HEVC media with their Quick Sync feature. However, with Premiere Pro 14.5 including GPU-based hardware encoding/decoding, the playing field has been...www.pugetsystems.com
