Once you have the 5950 in hand you can always try to swap for a 5900X + cash. There might be someone out there wanting the 16 cores.Well I managed to get a 5600 and 5950 on order from Amazon. Really want a 5900. Can sell the 5600 to a friend but 5950 is really just a waste of money for my uses.
A bot. 😁 And it still missed half a dozen 5600s before succeeding and 3 5900s today. And my 5950 isn't coming until Jan 7. 5600 probably going to a friend but if I end up with anything extra I'll sell to established members here at cost.What black magic are you wielding?
Mind sharing details on the bot? I've been trying to get hold of a 5950x with no luck! Seems that bots are the only way to obtain one!A bot. 😁 And it still missed half a dozen 5600s before succeeding and 3 5900s today.

I owned a RTX 3070 for almost 24hrs. I only bought it for scalper trade bait and had no intentions of putting it in my rig. I put it up on OfferUp after it was delivered in trade for a 5900x. No trade offers, but a person offered me $680 for it the next AM so I sold it. A couple hours later a 5900x popped up for sale a couple miles from my house and I offered him $680 for it and he accepted....Scalper got my flippers profit and I only had to pay $10 over retail for the 5900x in the end. I was hoping to just trade it, but it all worked out for the best anyways.I own both now.
We have 4 PCs in the house.
Will do....But as you already know it's a BEAST.Kenmitch, please keep us informed on your thoughts about the 5900x.
You have tons of patience to play with sub-timings on an individual basisWill do....But as you already know it's a BEAST.
I'm currently stress testing my memory at 3800MHz CL14 which 100% loads all the dang cores. After toying with multiple sub-timings and voltages I figured out the 1 single sub-timing that was giving me errors. All I had to do was raise the tRCDR to 15 which eliminated all the errors! I'm now seeing if I can tighten up some of the other sub-timings that I loosened during the process. So far so good.
I locked my cores at 3.6GHz @1.01v's and it's at a blistering 39c @ 26 minute mark is about all I can add at this time....Other then it's a whopping 2w a core.
The quick trips in and out of the uEFI aren't bad....It's the dang prolonged memory stability testing that sucks! I locked the core low as it's a waste of energy! I doubt cpu speed effects the outcome anyway.You have tons of patience to play with sub-timings on an individual basis
6 months off and on of doing exactly that is how I have one of the fastest IPC 5960x.You have tons of patience to play with sub-timings on an individual basis
As for undervolting and locking to fixed clock, that's what I do when running office task during work day on my PC. It's amazing how fast these PC's can be even when limited to under 45W power use.
Where did you manage to get a hold of one at?I got a hold of a 5900X but decided not to buy because I have done zero research in anything else. To whomever my cancelled order went to, enjoy.
I'll buy in a few months once prices get reduced some in response to Rocket Lake or whatever hair-brained bull Intel pushes out.
Oh and this a 3 week wait, normally 7 to 14 days.I've waited 2 years to upgrade :\
I have always built my own PCs since forever but I gave up trying to acquire the latest and greatest (5900x + 6800xt) and ordered from Falcon. Well at least ill have a pretty cool case
Well I hear their customer service is outstanding.
