Have to wait for a more matured bios and I still have overhead with thermals and such, just not enough time to tinker with it all yet. Plus this is great value proposition for my professional workloads compared to Intel HEDT or Threadripper. It’s not all about comparing apples to apples with frequency, really depends on what you’re using it for. You have to consider IPC improvements, and for purely gaming, I would say go for the 9900k or 3600/3700x for sure depending on budget.
Don’t think so, but I really haven’t noticed it at all. Only time I’ve heard it was with the case open on startup when it spoils up for just a second.
I haven’t noticed it yet honestly since the fractal design r6 has such great sound isolation.
