looking better for $420 vs $450. The 5800x exists (and the 5700x DOESN'T exist) entirely to raise AMD's average selling price. The 800 cpus are almost always a terrible value when a 700 8 core cpu exists. Not only did AMD raise prices with the 5000 series, they also removed the coolers from all but the 5600x, adding another $40+ to anyone who didn't already have one.

The 5800 is a great CPU, but the non-existent 5700, 5700x and 5800 all would have been much better value, and for that I will always hate it.

At $450, the jump to the 5900x and its 12 cores is relatively small (+$100), and I'm almost certain that was AMD's intent.

IMO, msrp should have been $400 (even if it sold for more because of supply v demand issues).

Also- as a Zen 3 owner, if I were in the market to build a new pc and didn't already have a compatible zen 3 motherboard, I'd be real tempted to go Intel right now. Gen 10 prices are pretty damn good and a total system build price would likely be lower than comparable quality AMD. Similar-enough performance and readily available. If you don't mind the 2x power usage

No it doesnt have overhearting issues. It doesn't come with a cpu cooler so you have to buy your own and if people aren't smart enough to put one on there then I suppose it CAN overheat (please put CPU coolers on).
Early on there was some issues. I believe a mixture of bios updates and people under volting them has fixed the issue. AMD was pushing too high voltage when they first launched.

Once properly setup, this thing is a beast and runs much cooler than Intel.

depends on how much you spent on the 5600x. if it's just for gaming, you won't see a difference in performance.
