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.
299 for a 5800x?!?!
Crazy good deal, to bad AZ doesn't have cool electronic shops like this anymore or I'd be in.ID: hjl6fh7
Im sort of in the same boat the nearest micro center is like 5 hours away! 🙁ID: hjlg4gx
I'm also 5 hours away... by airplane.
There’s one fewer at the Tustin location. Just sayin’.
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 startedID: hjlz5c0
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+ID: hjkiii2
Setting pbo to enabled adds 20c instantly. Leave it on auto and temps are fine. Actually run’s cooler than my 5900x.ID: hjkj3h8
I'm seriously considering getting one so we'll see. Have a microcenter about an hour away from me.ID: hjlr0bo
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.ID: hjly9sf
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.
