Anyone knows what might be the best way for us to get 5950x? I emailed a bunch of shops at SLS and a lot of them either don't have it or say they only sell it if you buy a full rig with them.

On carousell, it's either scalpers or shops advertising it bundled with some overpriced motherboard. Either that or the listings put MSRP for sg but then in the listing will say OOS and have to buy "US" version at scalper prices.

Bros with 5950x, did you get them at MSRP?
You can try Taobao. My take is finding one now at MSRP is close to impossible with the acute shortage of chips. Its even harder especially when you just want to buy the chip, i.e. no bundle.

I had been waiting and monitoring the markets for a few months, just got one off a carousell seller for (MSRP + $100++)
Consider $100++ a convenience fee for getting a local Corbell box version without full system.

The one i got is considered a good sample.
After days of testing; all its core can boast to 4.9ghz, half of them hit 5.0ghz and the best core can reach 5.125ghz. No regrets!

Hi anybody .
i Just switch to this new processor and it’s currently idling around 50-55 degrees according to ryzen master. Currently using a 360 aio from nzxt, are these temps normal?

what processor and what's your load temp?

If it bothers you just remount the AIO.

My 5600X w/ Noctua NH-D14 idles below 50 degree Censius.

Which one exactly? They have different tdp ratings, some of them are hot at idle. For my 5600x it idles at 40-42 deg with a 240mm aio in non aircon room. There is a curve optimizer u can use to help drop idle temps (negative value will drop the vf curve, lesser voltage for idling base clock means lesser heat). Also tweak ur fan curves to be slightly more aggressive.

Just a side info, if u also find it too hot with high load on cpu especially if u turned on pbo, use ppt to reduce the wattage provided to cpu to run it cool. This does not help idle temps though.

Hi both, its the 5900x. currently idling at 50+. i tried to remounting the aio but still no change in temps. Cinebench R20 just pushed the temps all the way to 90deg. So just wondering if my AIO is up lorry already?

Will go and find out mor on the curve optimizer method as well

5900x cooled using nh-d15. Idles at 35-40C based on Ryzen master readout.

90 degree with pbo limits at stock or motherboard? I don't think a 360mm shouldn't be able to cool a 5900x below throttle temps if its at stock. Check mounting pressure, try repaste and make sure u didnt leave behind the plastic thing if its a brand new aio.

50+ is too hot idle. My 5800x water cooled idle is 38-39 idle in ryzen master

agree with all the bros here, 50C is too hot for idle. I had a 5900X too, even with 240mm AIO at idle never go above 45C.

I suggest you calibrate your fan curve. What AIO are you using btw? Pump speed (AIO_PUMP/CPU_OPT) speed should be at MAX while CPU_FAN can be adjusted. Also make sure your rad fans are not drawing hot air from your GPU to cool the radiator.

Thanks for your input. I'm coming from a 4790k so this is relatively warm for idle.

And yes, i'm using a NZXT x73 which is drawing air from within the case but 50 deg is still kinda scary

taobao has never sold any ryzen 9 chip at msrp. even now, boxed 5950x still selling for 1.38k before shipping and taxes, though it did hit 1.7k at one point early this year.
But I wasn't saying that you can find a 5950X at MSRP. Instead I was answering to the question where to find 5950X. ;)

Mind sharing what is your case/fan config? There is always a need to balance GPU/CPU cooling in any case

Personally I am using a Jonsbo U5 S for my Ryzen 5600X. This case has one intake location (bottom) and two exhaust location (top and rear). In config 1, the radiator only receives warm-hot air from the GPU. In config 2, there is some cool air drawn from the rear. The result is as much as 5 degrees lower temp on full sustained load (stress test). Incidentally, my PSU (Super Flower Leadex III) also has an option to turn on the fan permanently, which I did, so that it helps with airflow through the case.

Another example is in the Lian Li Lancool Mesh case. There is option to mount an AIO on the front or top. Top helps best for GPU cooling but front helps best with CPU cooling.

Im using the 5900X with X73 cooler. My idle temps are 37 - 41. Cinebench stress test does reach the 90 deg limit, and I think it's alright. I'm using mobo limits.
Make sure your PBO settings are correct and the CPU is allowed to put its cores to sleep. There's a possibility your voltages aren't ramping down when idling, so monitor these in HWmonitor.
My fan speed configuration isn't aggressive at all. Ramps up steeply from 80deg onwards I think. Anything below, I kept it quiet. With 360 rad especially, after a certain speed, it doesnt give much advantage, but ends up being too noisy. I do have 6 fans, in push-pull config.

Heng I disabled automatic driver update, it really gets in the way when you use DDU to clean old display drivers and windows decided your GPU need drivers and installed an older version of it. :s39:

Bros with 5950x, did you get them at MSRP?
bought it in dec as a standalone at MSRP.

if msrp + abit of taxes from scapler might as well

just my 2 cents

Hi, im using the o11 dynamic with air flow direction like your 1st pic.

Finally found out whats happening, hope this will help future buyers if they happen to chance upon the same issue.

I flashed to an older bios. The previous one that i was using was F33i to an F32. Not sure why is there an i at the back, could be a beta version.

Updated my windows power plan to balance, installed the Ryzen chipset for windows and finally updated the PBO curve settings in the bios. Now its running at 42-45 deg on idle with air coming in from the case within. (Reason being i dont want hot air from my AIO to throttle my GPU.)

Now it doesnt hit 90 degs with prime 95, aida 64, cinebench 20 or even real life benchmarking which is gaming on near 4k. (Resident Evil Village). It maxes out at 80 deg give or take.
