I upgraded from an i7-7700k processor and switched over to Ryzen. As a benchmark, the processor should show about a multi-core 20% increase of performance over my previous Intel choice. What I really see is a near identical performance for most day to day tasks, and crucially, a fractionally lower framerate on some AAA gaming titles that utilize multi core. It was, essentially, an upgrade to nowhere. But damn, does this thing look good in my case.

Ryzen 7 - 3800x - 3.9Ghz - Very pleased with this for Cad and Video Editing - More then enough processing power compared to the 3600x - which is considered the best bang for processor buck. Way better fan then the 3600x as well. I upgraded my system from an Intel I7 which lasted 8 years.... I am hoping this upgrade will at least last 5 years... ... Memory Express was very good about returning the 3600x which I thought was just border line to run my Solid modeling software. A Good choice and a well worth the extra $170..
I wish they would discount they would make stock water cooled fans for these CPU's... it does make a bit of noise when running at 100 percent.... I Used an old server heavy case to dampen the noise...
no regrets switching from Intel to AMD

Stock cooler with RGB.
Stock cooler can get loud at high temps.
The stock cooler is decent, at idle I get 30c, under full load (Cinebench and CPU-Z) I get a max of 75c. During gaming I typically see 60-65c, the cooler can get loud at high temps. Overall, came from a 1600 to this 3800X and I have seen a massive performance increase, especially in X-Plane 11.

Purchased this CPU over the 3700x because it was out of stock. Upgraded from a i5-4460 that would get pinned at 100% in CPU intensive games, this CPU goes to about 35% max in the same tittles. - Very powerful. - Stock cooler is very high quality plus RGB - temps are not bad even with a stock cooler - never even hit 80c under 100% synthetic load. - Mobo automatically overclocked to 4.2Ghz on all 8 cores, sure I could get more if I wanted. - made me go from an Intel fan boy to hating Intel and I've never looked back. - price to performance is very good considering you don't need an aftermarket cooler.
- stock cooler a bit loud when ramping up
Very solid CPU although I do not see much reason to get a 3800x over a 3700x I was just Impatient.

Low idle temps! low load temps! better performance than 9700k! comes with included cooler! cheaper than competition!
Will be even better in a few months when the price goes down more...
I had a 9900K and it was garbage; high temps, stuttering, and overall a poor value. Returned it for this and I am super happy.

More cores??? Fancy lights on the cooler???
-Still worse single threaded performance VS 9700k and this is a brand new CPU -Runs SUPER HOT with the stock cooler. Idle temp cycles constantly between 45 and 55 degrees. Load test temps average about 82 degrees with frequent spikes up to 90, highest recorded temp was 94, lowest was 80. A windows notification frequently pops up saying my CPU temperature is above whatever value and that "prolonged operation may reduce CPU life". I'm wondering if there might be some thermal conductivity issues with the die, am I going to have to cut the lid off of this thing?? -Cooler makes an annoying "MRRRRR" noise that mostly goes away when I squeeze the plastic housing. Super noticeable and annoying at idle. Low quality. Going to have to buy a better heat sink. -Manufacturers forgot how to make heat pipe coolers for X570 chipsets for some reason
Bought this one because the 3700X was out of stock. If I could have a do-over I would probably have waited until the fall to see what Intel comes out with or just have gotten a 9700k.
