Are you still using your old AM3+ cooler or are you keeping it? It might be interesting to see how it works with a new Ryzen compared to a more current cooler. The newer cpus have a higher heat density and might do better with newer coolers that take that into account.Yeap, in my routines, my FX8350 would finished up a routine in 19 minutes. This Athlon 3000G does it in 15 minutes. 26.7% time saved. Equates to a few hours total. It's a big deal for me. I know a Ryzen 1600 does it in 6 minutes, same file. So if the 5900x can drop this to under 4 minutes, it will be a massive time saver for me. So I'm not losing anything frankly going from FX8350 to the Athlon 3000G which is kind of sad, but 8 year tech gap makes a big impact. Just waiting on that 5900x, maybe in 6 months sigh.
