Quote from KhaiN6785 :
-----------------------------
I wish the USB problem can be fixed but it has been almost 3 months of constant headaches. Even replaced my Hynix memory with expensive B-die ram. Still constant USB stutters. AMD finally acknowledged the problem couple of days ago.

Sorry AMD, I need my computer for work and I've ordered the 10850K. The loss of 2 cores and IPC performance is worth it for a computer that has working USB ports

For those who are curious, look https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comm...00_series/

Did an OC on a K CPU always void the warranty and I just missed it, or is that something new?
Doesn't void warranty but if chip gets damaged from overclock you need pay for performance tuning plan.

Im pissed

i bought the 10850K like 5 months ago from ebay for $420 plus tax and thought i got an amazing deal at the time. coulda waited. and saved over $100 because BH wouldnt charge me tax.
I bought my i7-10700K for $409.99 at Best Buy early summer... not factoring in me selling my old chip and board. This pains me worse, but happy with the upgrade and the time I've gotten out of it. If we kept waiting, there's always something better, faster and cheaper in the future. Enjoy what you have.

These really 65W? Or is it "65W" =P
Haven't checked in on Intel in a while. Pretty much moved all builds to Ryzen in past few years.

Quote from ten80 :
ASUS TUF Gaming Z590 Plus WIFI. I was upgrading from a Gigabyte Auros Pro AX H470 that I had for a month... what a piece of junk that was. I was looking for a ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-E, or Asrock Taichi Z490 on a deal, but I missed the Newegg deals from last month. The availability kept going down but not the price.
I have the Asus rog strix z490-e it an awesome board they always have like 3 or 4 of them in stock at my local Best Buy, try looking there if your still in the market I got mine about a month and a half ago I was doing a new build and got to use my birthday discount and they price matched BH or someone and I got it for 245$. I was going to wait for the 590s but I'm so impatient I'm really happy with my choice Asus really has the best manuals and little extra they throw in.

10900 is not overclockable, 10850K is. You'll need serious cooling muscle though to overclock the 10850K: a top shelf air cooler (Noctua NH-D15 or DeepCool Assissin III) or a 280mm/360mm liquid cooler.
Might as well buy the i9-10900K.

If anyone is curious about ACTUAL preformance numbers. I have both the 5800X and 10900K.

5800X Maxes out at 4.6Ghz all-core @ 1.35v
10850K/10900K Maxes out at 5.1Ghz all-core - AVX offset 0 @ 1.275v.

Needless to say the 10900K draws 330 watts in Prime95 and REQUIRES a open-loop water cooled setup. I am using a 480mm RAD. Stil the chip reaches 93c. However in games its about 55c and Blender / Adobe encode is 77c.

At the end of the day, both overclocked, both get the same frame rate with a RTX 3080 in 14 games I tested.

So to conclude, the 5800X is better due to only needing a 280 AIO and 3800 memory for gaming, but it costs more. Intel on the other hand is better for encoding / rendering IF you can cool it.

If you arent planning on getting a 360 AIO, dont even bother with the 10850/10900K. It will clock all the way down to 4.3Ghz under load to keep it below 100c.

I mean the difference between a 360 and a 280 AIO is peanuts. Case, fans, gpu, will play just a significant role in how much you can squeeze of out of either chip. Still for gaming, i would lean towards a 10850k/10700k mainly because of price

there is some obsession about PCIE gen 4 which is a fair point for AMD just not as relevant as some make it out to be

Not discounting your experience, but my 280 AIO (Arctic) cools my 10700k @1.3V. Keeps it in the low 70's during P95. But, I have a cool case too. I know its not the 10 core, but something to think about.

Quote from lightspeeds :
This is a good deal for a 10700K. I've been using mine for about 2 months and coming from a 2500K, this thing is very fast. I haven't done anything intensive other than playing some games, but it's handled everything very well. My setup is 10700K, Asus Prime Z490-A mobo, and WD Blue NVME SSD.
How do you like that combo? I was able to get that MB and CPU in a combo at newegg last week for $475. I went with a Samsung evo plus 512GB NVME though. The ssd should arrive tomorrow and it's the last piece I need to start the build.

Intel stiffling innovation with locked processors. What a great example, now nvidia is crippling hashrates, amd has bios locked 5xxxx series, what's next AMD to charge intel prices???

Sounds like there still isn't enough competition in this space, china wya?

I'm loving it. My PC boots up in 3-4 seconds. I haven't had a single hiccup. I have not tried overclocking the CPU, but I really have no need to. My build is equipped to be overclocked to over 4.5 ghz if I wanted to. I have not tried video processing or graphic design on it yet, but I did do some rom file conversions (about 15 gigs worth), which went faster than I expected.

As for the Asus motherboard itself, the bios menu was new to me, so there was a slight learning curve, but nothing you can't Google search and figure out. The motherboard has a lot of options, 1 NVME slot for a wifi card, 2 NVME SSD slots, has RGB lights on the board (I didn't know it did when I got it), fan control, plenty of SATA ports, USB, USB-C, etc. Overall, this motherboard has more options than I will ever use.
