Killer Microcenter deal on Ryzen 7 5800x

1 : Anonymous2021/11/06 15:57 ID: qo368a

If you live near a Microcenter, they've taken $150 off the Ryzen 7 5800x, so the retail is $299. I know the Ryzen 7 5800x wasn't very well received when it debuted, but that's cheaper than the Ryzen 5 5600x on Amazon, so why not? As a guy currently running a Ryzen 5 3600, this will be a VERY nice upgrade.

In-person pickkup only, it looks like.

Crazy good deal, to bad AZ doesn't have cool electronic shops like this anymore or I'd be in.

I hate how tempting this is. I have a 2600 that still works fine and I find myself using my desktop less and less in favor of my work laptop, but I’ve been fighting with myself about getting one of these since the sale started

My 3600 works fine, but I do a lot of photoshop with raw files so more cores=more gooder. Not to mention +1 gen newer etc. but honestly I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t need the horsepower for PS because otherwise what I have is great for games and stuff.

same price as 12600k

I just can't get over the temps on that thing. I have a Dark Rock Pro 4 but feel like I'd need to upgrade to a good AIO if I was going to buy 5800X.

Edit: Gotta love people downvoting you for expressing temperature concerns about a CPU that regularly hits 90C+

Setting pbo to enabled adds 20c instantly. Leave it on auto and temps are fine. Actually run’s cooler than my 5900x.

I'm seriously considering getting one so we'll see. Have a microcenter about an hour away from me.

Here is a link to a previous post where I commented with an official AMD slide of the expected thermals based on the quality of the cooling solution you are using.

Seriously, why even obsess about the temps?

AMD's Robert Hallock specifically spoke regarding this - these chips are engineered to run this hot, it's perfectly fine.
