Absolute monster.

Picked this up right as it launched. PBTech delayed the shipment to the 30th which was a bum, but guess what? 13th November (a week after purchasing) I get an email, your order has been shipped. Next day, it's here. Shoutout to PBTech.

The CPU is insane. 2nd best CPU in the world and arguably the best for specific things. I got this so I can game, stream, and produce music and I won't have to upgrade for years. Upgrading from a Ryzen 5 2600 to this has been a huge step up, I love it.

No complaints or issues. This baby is craaaaazy!

Overkill but amazing

Upgraded to this from an i7 5820k Overclocked at 4.3Ghz.

Intel may have been clinging onto having the better CPUs for years, but now AMD have absolutely thrashed them in every respect.
Price, Performance, AMD is now the king.

It's completely over the top for what I need it for, but I don't care.
It's the best thing out there aside from the 5950X for gaming and productivity, and seeing 24 boxes on task manager is just oh so nice.

Paired up with an RTX 2080 and running games at 1440P 144hz
It also cut down my video render times by a huge margin.

Incredible! 12 Cores at over 5ghz!

Running great with 32gb 3600CL16 memory, the 3700X it replaced could not sustain 3600CL16 with any undervolting applied.
Runs cooler than the 3700X whilst destroying it in performance.
PBO that reaches 5.125ghz on 1 or two core without changing any other settings! 4.7ghz all core boost too.

Literally nothing better for the cost right now. Can't recommend this any more

Expensive - but aren't all good things?

Installed this onto an Asus Crosshair VIII Dark Hero motherboard and everything worked well out of the box.
This is my first AMD CPU for about 20 years. It is remarkable what competition does for the computer industry and, in 2020/21, AMD is certainly well ahead. Gone (for now) are the days when a CPU upgrade resulted in performance being only a few percentage points higher than the old one (Intel).
This CPU just yelled out to me "buy me".

Probably the best higher end CPU for Dec 2020/Jan 2021

If you want a higher end CPU with all the threads this is probably the better 'value' than the 5950X. Unless you need the extra cores of a 5950X, this thing handles everything well. I can play Cyberpunk while having a bunch of other things going on at the same time with no issues.

Amazing performace for the price.

I have a 3900x in another build and can honestly say the 5900x just feels more responsive. Completes all the tasks I through at it with ease. Photoshop, Lightroom, Video encoding. Even tried some ESXI and Proxmox for Virtual Machine testing. Just love this chip. And when I need to relax and just play some games its a dream.

Best of all worlds

What can you really say besides its a 4.8Ghz 12 core 24 thread CPU that's power efficient.

If you want one of the best cpu's for gaming and productivity, look no further.

There's something amazing about knowing I have 47 browser tabs open and could open twice as many again before my cpu starts to break a sweat. Then there's the video editing of course, but browser tabs are much more the day to day benefit.
Runs at great temps with a 240mm AIO.
