If someone's getting a Aorus Master, 5950X, and ProSiphon Elite I hope they're doing some hardcore overclocking. That's some exotic expensive hardware, I'd pay see it running, like an animal in a zoo.

750w should be enough for a regular system with a 3080. I'm always concerned about efficiency and aging though, so I always go at least 200w above what I need. I actually only went with 1000w because of the supply shortage of PSU. There was a few 850w/766w PSU I wanted to get instead. What is going on with that? I would have thought it would have been more than sorted by now.

Superclocking a 5800X shouldn't guzzle too much power, considering it has significantly less cores than the other two and the whole 7nm thing is a great insurance policy.  Intel 10xxx would be a different story...

I'm honestly getting stoked for this.

Cut and pasted from old thread... only real change is the Gfx card, because I'm a cheapskate. Originally it was just the onboard intel "gfx", then a ti-1050 with (4gb)
 
 
Casing
Corsair Carbide Quiet 600Q Inverse ATX Full Tower Case
 
PSU
Dark Power Pro 11 1000W Power Supply
 
Motherboard
Asus ROG Strix Z370-F Gaming LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard
 
CPU/CPU Cooler
Intel Core i7 8700K Six Core LGA 1151 3.7 GHz
Dark Rock Pro 3
 
RAM
Corsair 64GB (4 x 16GB) CMK32GX4M2B3000C15 DDR4 3000MHz Vengeance LPX
 
HDD (boot)
Intel 760p Series M.2 NVMe SSD 512GB
 
HDD (other) (x2 for 12TB total)
Western Digital Black WD6002FZWX 6TB
 
Optical Drive (does dvd, blu-ray and m-disc writing)
LG BH16NS55
 
GFX
Asus ROG-STRIX-RTX2070S (8gb)
 
I like how relatively low noise the gfx card is even when under duress. And if I feel like getting it more quiet, the accompanying Asus software allows me to use "silent" mode where it sacrifices speed for low temperatures (and less fan activity)

What are you going to be using all them cores for, some rendering like blender or cinebench?

Mainly video editing and encoding.

You will eventually.

I really need a new CPU just for encoding stuff, my i7-4770k has been making it very difficult and more time-consuming than it needs to be as of the past couple of years. Still looking to upgrade to a Ryzen within the next year or so...

I have a 4790K, we're basically in the same boat. I'm imagining encoding with quadruple the cores and much higher IPC...

Ha, yeah, that's almost literally the same exact CPU (just the weird Devil Canyon's "refresh" version of it). The 32 thread 5950X might, uh, be slightly better compared to either, :p. I am not looking to upgrade to something *quite* that ridiculous, probably more like a 5800X. ...Although the 5900X at MSRP is only $100 more for 50% more cores/threads, which is a ridiculous value, so it might just  come down to actual prices at the time of purchasing.

I'm waffling on upgrading since I have a 3900X and 5700XT

I mean, I really want to, but since I'm still gaming at 1080p I don't see the point unless I also get some new monitors and that's even more money that I'm not sure I want to spend right now

The 3900X and 5700XT should carry a mid-ranged gamer for quite some time.  Personally if that's what I had, I probably wouldn't even bother for a while.  I used to be a staunchly mid-ranged gamer but I got sucked back into hardware extremism (even after swearing I wouldn't ever do it again).  My bank account is not pleased.

RAM: 32 Gigabytes of DDR4 Trident Z Royal Series in 4 sticks of 8 gigabytes that comes with a 3200Mhz data rate with a cache latency of 14-14-14-34 (CL14 fourteen).

I am hoping I can get it to 13-13-13-31, and would not mind turning down the data rate to 3100Mhz to achieve it.

We will see once it arrives what I can do with it.

Whelp, I didn't have much luck with the timings but I still managed to get it to 3333Ghz so I think we're good for while.  Internet experts say that you want both speed and timings to be high and shouldn't sacrifice one for the other.  I disagree, it is of my opinion that you should aim for better data rate with AMD and better timings with Intel because Intel chips are designed with real complex cache setups whilst AMD has that whole Infinity Fabric thingamabob that seems to benefit from higher base speeds. 

I don't like the glowing RGB, perhaps I can find some drivers where I can just set it to blue and green, but it doesn't really matter because my huge air fan covers the memory anyway.

Speaking of air fans, I managed to beat the Ryzen Threadripper 1950x 16 Cores in multicore  Cinebench with my i9 10900k overclocked and temps never went above 80c which impressive because the 10900k only sports 10 cores.  Single Cores can't quite beat the best of Zen 3, but it's close, and not massively significant.  Just not long ago I thought the only way to fly was with water cooling.  Doesn't appear to be the case.

I'm starting to think that CPU's matter a great deal for gaming nowadays, because newer CPU's are showing benchmark results that greatly reduced 1.0% and 0.1% lows, which results in much more consistent 'fluid' gameplay that you would otherwise get.

EDIT: managed to find the RGB drivers just fine and got all four RAM sticks to cyan.  Looks great!  Cyan is my favorite color, however my fan still blatantly blocks it.

Freesync/G-sync are just the most brilliant invertion. I don't know how I lived without one before. Then again, before I was rarely able to run games at 60FPS not to mention above that.
