I'm almost glad the PSU died. That's when I started taking things more seriously with computer components. After it died, I swapped out the PSU with a new one, and of course that led to actually understanding how a lot of the wiring was set up inside.

Oh I don't buy cheap components anymore. You'll end up spending more on replacing it with different components sooner. My current build I've had about 4 1/2 years. Right after when the GTX 1070 came out, and I'm finally looking to switch to something else. In the past I got about 3 years out of a PC.

I don't know how AMD is with it now, but some years ago they were very slow about putting out driver updates on their GPUs, which is why I ended up going mostly with Nvidia. However, I'm considering the current generation as you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Quote from JMBauer74 :
I've had several components die, but it doesn't happen too often. An MSI Mobo, Thermaltake PSU, and an Nvidia GPU. The Nvidia GPU was before I knew what I was doing and bought some GPU from a Chinese manufacturer. Even though it was under warranty, it was pointless trying to get an exchange because they had it set so you couldn't reach a person, so you had to send an email, and of course they never responded.
What's the RMA rate for MSI, Thermaltake, and Nvidia GPUs? Ha ha

BTW, you still don't know what you're doing.

You're trying too hard. Notice how some people are able to have a meaningful and friendly conversation, but you seem incapable of such normal behavior. It's sad really, but I hope you're able to find what it is you really need in life. Good luck.

I have this cpu and it runs very hot. It runs hotter than 5900x and 5950x. That's why it is in stock way more often than 5900x and 5950x. I had to enable the eco mode to settle it down. Even in idle the temp spikes to 70 degrees for no reason. I have 360mm liquid cooling but that's not the problem. There are a lot of people reporting this temp issue. You can find some on reddit and youtube. Avoid this cpu if you can. I am afraid it's going to fail soon because of this heat problem

Right, well first welcome to slickdeals. I noticed you are a new user and still learning the ropes about deals. Second, I'm not making up figures. This has been a hot topic on Reddit, and there have been tech blogs reporting on it [youtube.com] as well. Are you suggesting they are making it all up?

My current understanding is that many of them are DOA. There have been also issues with the B550 and X570 MOBOs that are used with the AMD chipset. Again, I'm only sharing what has recently been reported and a hot topic. That doesn't mean you won't get one that works just fine.
Your wrong. Actually read the articles.

If you are hitting 70 idle then your heatsink isnt making good contact with the die (even if it is making contact with the heatspreader). A lot of AIO water blocks are designed for Intel die positioning (single die under the heatspreader, in the middle). Single CCD Ryzens have the CCD off center (IO die left, CCD right). Since most blocks arent designed for this they could have problems cooling the chips.
Dual CCD Ryzens make much more contact with the heatspreader so they can actually run cooler than a single fully packed CCD, especially because they all share the same TDP limit which means all-core boost speeds will go lower as you have more cores (and power efficiency with clock speed declines exponentially). In other words you might have 4.4GHz x 16, vs 4.5GHz x 12, 4.6GHz x8, all consuming the same watts. Except the 8 core is going to be the most thermally dense of all of them.

Tl:dr 5900X is the way to go, but if you have a 5800x you might want to consider air cooling or look for Ryzen designed waterblocks.

I do not think if it's about the cooler I'm using. I have tried arctic silver 5 thermal paste as well and no difference. There are bunch of people out there with the same problem. I think the cpu is too aggressive. Hope AMD will fix the issue with a software update. You can watch the videos below if you want.
