Should pair fine in terms of a bottleneck, if there is any, it should be on the GPU side.

If you didn't know, this dude is an Intel salesman here on Slickdeals. If you go to an AMD deal, you will see him say "Buy Intel" or "wait for new Intel CPU coming". If you go to an Intel deal, you will see him say "Buy buy buy". It is hilarious.
its a beast of a processor but with its power requirements, no available motherboards under $200 yet, and 6000cl30 still falling in price, it would wait on this. if you have to build now, the 5900x/5950x have fallen so far down down, easily ran on any decent $130 b550, and 32gb of 3600cl16 for dirt cheap, there is just too much bang for buck to be had there.
Not really. A decent aio or air cooler will be fine. Also, a small change in the bios cuts power consumption by 50ish watts and temps by 20c.

Where to find cheap 5950? I thought they all jacked up the price as soon as 7950 launched

The 7700x is a much better bang for your buck at $$340 with the code and zippay payment.

As long as you can wait 1.5-2 weeks for the much cheaper b650e motherboards to come out. Also, all of the DDR5-4000+ RAM is backordered on Newegg, thanks to all the demand from this Ryzen 7000 series, which only came out a few days ago.

For me this is what I needed. I am doing a new build and had all of the parts I needed but the CPU, motherboard and GPU. Went with the 7700 instead of 7900 and got the motherboard with $100 off which helps mitigate some of the platform costs. For new builds this is a pretty good deal as with AM5 I have an upgrade path for a few years if i want to upgrade. Immediately, the costs savings for AM4 is the better value but I think for new builds it's a great offer no matter what CPU you get because if you get a 7600 or 7700 you can pair it with a motherboard to maximize savings as you'll need a new one anyways. Now I just gotta wait for the 4090 lol

The information is slowly coming out that these chips don't simply run hot, they're designed to auto-overclock up to their highest set temperature. We've never seen CPU's run at mid 4.x GHz and auto-clock to 5.x GHz on their own out of the box - they're crazy fast.
To "fix" the issue, we can
1) Slap the best cooler we can on them and watch them clock to the moon
2) lower the highest max temp we would like in the BIOS (95°C freaks some people out)
3) flat out disable this default ability and use the eco mode

Still easier than with Intel. Their Raptor Lake TDPs are quoted as high as 350W (which will actually be a lot more than double what this draws).

Reasonable. But it depends on usage. If it's just for gaming, the 5800X3D is better. If you're building for gaming, you may as well get the Ryzen 5 7000 for now and upgrade to a 9900X3D in two years.

Yes i have the x3d. I agree for gaming only but this is a small niche of computing.

Yep, depends on purpose. However, who actually uses more horsepower than a Ryzen 5 provides on a regular basis?

Niche maybe. But don't tell that to NVidia.
