What I found most interesting about that video was the temps. I keep hearing the 5800X runs pretty f'ing hot, but it looks like while gaming (which is my primary use) it's not much different than the other two. Yes, he's got a good AIO, but so do I, so that helps settle my concerns.
That's a pretty good temp for gaming, imo. I don't plan to OC mine (seems like the benefits are very minimal in the videos I've seen), but I'll have an Arctic Freezer 2 360mm on it. Looking forward to seeing the improvements I'll get in games like Total War: WH2 over the i7-4790k I have now.Well, mine is actually slightly OC’d (4,6Ghz, 1.25vc) and it is running at 45-50ºc, using a Noctua DH-15.
Btw, I noticed AC:V barely relies on CPU, but it drains your GPU
So far, the 5800x has been a great pairing with my rtx3080. Played several games and had noticeable improvements over my i7 4790k (duh, I guess). Games are generally a lot smoother - high fps seems to be the same, but the lows and random stutters (likely frame drops) are much improved. Some older games there's just no helping, tho. GTA V still gives bizarro frame drops, while gpu/cpu utilization is relatively low. Eh, what can you do. Either way, very happy with my purchase. Also, it runs pretty cool during gaming - usually in the 40s and 50s *C. Now if I could just get my ram to run at decent timings....
Edit: Also, with the auto-OC feature enabled in the Ryzen Master software, it consistently boosts to 4.95 ghz while doing cpu intensive tasks. Color me impressed!
