That's absurd. I'd much rather somebody rig up and sell me a sort of jukebox system to boot different CPU's on a single board. That way I can be more efficient and cover my desk with one giant box. Rather than multiple s my smaller ones.Great price on a great gaming CPU. Zen4 and Raptor Lake have done nothing to make me regret mine.
Just throwing it out there, a 5800X3D doesn't have to replace a 5900/50X... In fact they can compliment each other well and AM4 mobos / used GPUs are cheap right now Fill up your desk with boxes and have multi-core and gaming performance separately.
I upgraded from a 5600x and set my curve optimizer to -30 with PBO2 Tuner. I can maintain 4.5ghz boost on all core @ 65-70c on real world loads. (The OCCT stress test ran at 52c for reference) I don't know how much is placebo but it feels a ton snappier. The cost right now to upgrade vs just buying this CPU to drop in an existing system is what pushed me to go ahead and purchase this. Best bang for buck right now imo.Can you Let me know how you like the boost? I want to grab one before supply dries up... and replace my current non X 5600 chip
i just got a plain 5800x...it was a great price, but damn it lol. worth upgrading!?
