    I initially intended to get the 3900X, however I couldn’t find it in stock anywhere and in all honesty, it was probably overkill for my needs. The extra 4 cores also came at a hefty price increase over the 3800X which is a good sweet spot for me. It performs as expected and boosts without any problem while keeping below 75 degrees with my Noctua D-15 air cooler.

    With basic PBO enabled all cores are hitting between 4,475 to 4,525 Ghz. BIOS and OS optimizations should hopefully boost its performance further.

    Was able to get to 4.5 but had to bring it back down to 4.4 to become stable. Powerfull cpu but it comes at a premium.

    I initially intended to get the Ryzen 3700X but the price of Ryzen 3800x was slashed on the day I went to buy the 3700x. The difference in price was only 1000 Rupees (14 USD). So I thought why not, and bought the Ryzen 3800x instead.

    Absolutely amazing. It's literally knocking my socks off right now. I wish I could have ordered one without the cooler since I'm using the AIO. It's just another box of size for me to keep around.

    Using the 3800X in my music production PC with no complaints. Not overclocking and it is very stable.

    No problems, two free games, and hopefully this will be future proofed for a while.

    from completed build Blackify Value Rig

    On auto, boost behavior yields 4.35-4.45, drops to 4.15-4.2 full load.

    Does all-core 4.3Ghz@1.288v 65C load. Will do 4.4Ghz@1.37 but not comfortable running with that voltage for 24/7.

    Sad AMD is micro-managing silicon rendering higher clocks binned behind paywalls/tech walls. I only got a 3800X due to an Amazon error that made this CPU as cheap as a 3600 which is what I planned for initially. The extra 2c/4t and OC headroom is otherwise not worth the ~$300 price difference between a 3600 and 3800X. A 3600 @4.2Ghz can not be beat in terms of value.
