Beast of a CPU when paired with a beefy cooler

Upgraded from an old Core i5-6500 and the performance increase is unreal. This thing shreds through Premiere Pro, I'm able to play back native 4K with effects in the timeline without lag. Most games (Battlefield, Deus Ex, Forza) don't even come near to maxing out the CPU at maximum settings. The one thing I will say is that it does run hot - currently using a Noctua D15s which is a massive improvement over the (not too shabby) stock cooler. I've also noticed than when fully maxing out the CPU, I'm never able to hit the max boost speed even though my temps are around ~60C. Regardless, the processor is unlocked for overclocking which I will...view more

Insane Power

Upgraded to this from my 2700x along with a new mother board, cooler, and ram, and all I can say is the possibilities with this thing are endless. Paired with a 2080s it’s by far the best piece of kit I’ve Owned, perfect for video editing, and gaming at 1440p at high fps. Definitely recommended.

Great CPU if you use it right

This CPU is great! Note, not as good value as 3700X but you do get a better bin (better overclocking potential).
On this note, the stock cooler is not enough - while it works with it, it is extremely loud and does not allow you to take true advantage of this model over 3700x, but if you are buying this, you don't expect to use it anyway.
Overall very happy with the purchase, in terms of gaming performance: It does push frames at about 15% faster than my RTX2080 super. (Without streaming.) Well balanced choice if you compliment with RTX2080 Ti or stream VR. Fantastic for multithreaded CPU heavy work as well.

5/5 great price for value

Great CPU and the cooler attached is great (used to buying Intel and all the coolers I have gotten with their CPU's have been lack luster). As stated above this is a great CPU for it's price tag, Would recommend for any body with a reasonable budget looking for a great gaming PC

Early days but seems great

I was looking for a performer and a chip that would meet my (moderate) needs for a few years - it seems great.

The processor is fast, but not easy to setup properly

This is my first AMD processor, and it delivered quite an improvement in Visual Studio 2019 compile times, compared to my old 3.6GHz i7-7700. For those switching from Intel, be prepared to read a lot of forum posts, do updates and play around with BIOS settings to get the most out of the AMD processor.

Good out-of-the-box performance

Given that Ryzen 2 series doesn't manually overclock that well, the 3800X may not be worth it at MSRP, but it is a worthwhile buy for out-of-the-box performance over the 3700X if you can find it on a good special like I did.

I got this on special as an upgrade to my 1600X on a Gigabyte AB350 Gaming motherboard. It is used primarily for Adobe Lightroom, with occasional Da Vinci Resolve and 1080p gaming thrown in. I can finally run my Corsair LPX 3200 MHz RAM at speed (albeit with a little relaxing of secondary timings). I can't comment on the Wraith Prism as I kept using the quieter Cryorig H7, but even on a bottom end B350 motherboard and ...view more

Worth it

If youve been waiting for an upgrade the last 2 or more Generations and dont mind splashing the extra cash behind Team Red then this will be a good fit for you. Though i would suggest going with either a custom water cooling solution or a AIO cooler as while the provided Wraith cooler included is nice it does little to help if you want to OC down the track

Powerful, but hot

While the CPU is more than powerful enough for gaming, even without an overclock, at idle, and having replaced the stock cooler with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black with both fans the processor run very hot (~60 C). I've heard the way around this is to manually decrease the voltage it receives but it shouldn't be this hot out of the box.
