AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Video Encoding Benchmarks

Video transcoding as a tool to adjust the quality, file size and resolution of a video file has boomed in recent years, such as providing the optimum video for devices before consumption, or for game streamers who are wanting to upload the output from their video camera in real-time. As we move into live 3D video, this task will only get more strenuous, and it turns out that the performance of certain algorithms is a function of the input/output of the content.

Pins coated in grey. Is it ok?
Hi.
I bought a second hand AMD A10-9700E processor. Couple of pins are covered in grey coat. This is not my first AMD AM4 processor (i have also ryz 5 3800x and ryz 5 2600) and i have never seen pins like this before. First i thought this is a thermal paste, but it is not. It is very regular and looks like factory. Could you help me and explain if this is normal and it is leaving factory like this? I attach photos to show what I mean.

Looks like the gold plating has peeled off rather than something coating the pin/s. This can happen when inserting/removing from a tight socket. Any pin that this has happened to is now subject to corrosion and may cause random system problems down the road.

Which of these is the best CPU+cooler+motherboard combo?
Hey guys!

So, I got a 1TB NVMe, a 700W Platinum+ SFX-L, and a kit of 32GB 3200. Thanks to your advice, I was gonna get the i9-9900 (at 50% off from a family member working for Intel), but when I went to find an ITX motherboard the only one I found in my country that can sustain an i9 is the Phantom, which costs $258. I also read that I'd need to buy a cooler cause the Intel 9th gen stock one sucks, so it's another $59 for the L12S.

I'm reconsidering options before ordering. Here are possible combinations I found (all with mITX motherboards). I do not need a video card at all, it's purely for productivity uses (lots of text, very heavy browser use, web developing, and some programming). When necessary, I factored in the cheapest 1030 that I found. Also, I used the stock cooler (hope it's enough) on all builds (except the 9900). Listed in order of price:

  • Ryzen 5 3400G = $271 (B350) or $301 (B450)
  • i3 10100 = $300 (B460) or $336 (Z490)
  • i5 10400 = $390 (B460) or $426 (Z490)
  • Ryzen 7 2700 = $396 (B350) or $427 (B450) or $497 (X470/B550)
  • Ryzen 5 3600 = $402 (B350) or $419 (B450) or $493 (X470/B550)
  • i5 10500 = $412 (B460) or $448 (Z490)
  • i5 10600 = $427 (B460) or $463 (Z490)
  • Ryzen 7 2700X = $430 (B350) or $461 (B450) or $531 (X470/B550)
  • Ryzen 5 3600X = $432 (B350) or $463 (B450) or $533 (X470/B550)
  • i5 10600K = $482 (B460) or $518 ( Z490)
  • Ryzen 5 3600XT = $490 (B350) or $521 (B450) or $591 (X470/B550)
  • Ryzen 7 3700X = $529 (B350) or $560 (B450) or $630 (X470/B550)
  • i7 10700 = $568 (B460) or $604 (Z490)
  • Ryzen 7 3800X = $574 (B350) or $605 (B450, $675 (X470/B550)
  • i9 9900 = $590 (50% off on CPU, pricey Z390 + Noctua L12S)
  • i7 10700K = $628 (B460) or $664 (Z490)
  • Ryzen 7 3800XT = $653 (B350) or $684 (B450) or $754 (X470/B550)
  • Which configuration gives the best bang for the buck for the uses I listed (without suffering any productivity setback)? Still the i9?

    Thanks <3

    Things take time. It takes a cpu a certain amount of time to render anything, game frame, web page etc. A stronger cpu can do things in less time as it has more available resources to work with. A 3700x might render a page in 1 second, a 3400G might take 2 seconds. To a cpu that's a huge improvement, massive really. To you, you blinked and it was over with. Can't really say just exactly how much of a difference there is on such a small scale. But when it comes to large scale, that's a different story. Play gta5 on a 3400G and 3700x, there's a fps difference, then add in streaming and the 4 cores of the 3400G just got swamped and fps drops like a bad habit. The 8/16 of the 3700x doesn't even blink.

    Mmorpgs online are even worse. All that AI can be seriously detrimental to fps. I play swtor and in single player ultra have no issues on an i7-3770K with getting 90fps+. 8man op and I'm into 60-90fps range, 16man op and I'm averaging 30fps with all cpu details disabled/min and a 24man world boss fight is miserable at 5-10fps and everything disabled. Just way too much, too intensive, too cpu challenging for even a 8thread i7 at 4.6GHz to handle. 3400G will be far worse as it has no Lcache and not nearly the same resources, even if it does have better IPC. Fastest runner in the world is useless if he has a ball and chain around 1 ankle. Make him stronger, make the chain longer and he'll just lick it up and run.

    B450m-H is a value motherboard. More tailored towards the 3600 or lesser cpus. It'll handle a 3700x just fine under normal circumstances, but Ryzens are dynamic cpus, they boost according to voltages, temps, loads. With no heatsink the VRM's will run hotter and will limit the boosting ability of the cpu. They won't overheat, but instead of seeing nice high boosts, you'll be relegated to more minimal boosts. The cpu will protect itself and the motherboard from excessive power draws.

    Is there any way to have my CPU throttle down at idle to reduce temps and noise?
    Hello, I just recently built my first PC and am a bit inexperienced in regards to controlling the system.

    I am running a Ryzen 7 3800x which has a base clock of 3.9 GHz. My issue is that the CPU is constantly running at this clock speed.

    Now I understand (based on recent searches) that this isn't really an issue, they are designed to run at base clock speed.
    However, I am wondering if there are any ways to have the clock speed reduce to maybe 50% at idle to reduce noise from my fans but still allow it to ramp up when needed.

    I have my power plan set to balanced with a minimum CPU state set to the default 5% and the max at 100%.
    I have also set the power mode to "better performance" but this setting seems to not change anything.

    I know that my temps and fan noise comes down with clock speed because I currently set the max CPU state to 50% and am having no problems with thermals or noise even with light activity.
    The difference in base clock and 50% clock temps are about 20 degrees.

    TLDR: Is there any way to have my clock speeds drop to around 50% at idle and ramp up to 100% when loaded to reduce temps and noise under light usage?

    Apologies for the wordy post, I have been searching the internet all day and cannot find an easy way to search this specific question through google.
    If you need anymore information, I have downloaded all the system monitoring programs that people commonly reference (HWinfo, Core Temp, Ryzen Master, CPU-Z, etc)

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Ryzen boosts to max clocks from idle on one core at a time, that's the way it's designed to work. AMD called it a 'rush to idle' when it was released. When it does it is also normal to see an instantaneous temp spike that also drops away pretty quickly. It's very brief and doesn't add much heat to the processor...kind of like reading the temp of a match in a room but you're still comfortable and cool. It works very much differently from the way Intel processors work so don't try to make it work that way as it will only frustrate you.

    To see the true thermal state of the processor you need to look at an averaging readout. Ryzenmaster does that and HWInfo has one too. But that spikey instantaneous reading is important because that's what fans react to...so you have to set up a custom profile to keep fans steady until about 70C or wherever the spikes are peaking at for you so you can keep them quiet.

    If you installed the AMD chipset drivers it would install a Ryzen Balanced power plan. Run that one but leave the min power state at 99% as it was installed. That lets the processor manage power instead of Windows... the processor's much faster and more effective as it makes power changes up to 100 times a second.

    In BIOS there is a Platform Thermal Limit setting that you can set for what you want. Otherwise, the processor uses it's design limit, Tjmax, or 95C. With decent cooling you should be able to keep the processor from ever exceeding 80-85C, even in an extreme processing load, so setting it there isn't a bad idea.

    Gigabyte z170n gaming 5 itx OverClocking help
    I have z170 system that I want to Overclock. My 6700k is still running solid. I was thinking to upgrade to 9700K or Ryzen 3800x. But the increase in gaming performance is minimal so I thought to stick with my current setup for another year.

    I am absolutely a noob in overclocking. I use Gigabyte's automatic OC for my CPU and it gets to 4.4GHz. If i try 4.5 it crashes in windows.
    I followed youtube video where the guy has same chipset motherboard and I OC'd to 4.5GHz with vcore = 1.330 but system was not stable (tried increasing vcore too)

    Maybe my CPU is not good enough to be pushed anything above 4.4? I have seen people OC'd to 4.6 with air cooler without any problem.

    here is my BIOS OC page image:
    View: https://imgur.com/sZ799Yx


    My specs are:
    i7 6700k @ 4.4GHz Automatic OC
    Gigabyte z170n gaming 5 mitx MB
    16GB 2166 DDR4 with XMP 2666 (currently enabled XMP) - also tried disabling this but still crashes
    650w PSU
    RTX 2080 Super

    Temps idle ~ 26-28C
    Temps load ~ 50ish C

    Any help or direction is appreciated.

    That is fine for your CPU temps but is it actually cooling the Vram area like a normal cooler does. That board only has a 3 phase for the power delivers and poor cooling for that. You can overclock your CPU to whatever but if your board don't have the proper Vram cooling or power delivery it will never be stable.

    Just because it offers it means nothing you might get it with a lesser CPU like a 6600K again with proper cooling NOT JUST THE PROCESSOR .

    Never use auto overclock for the reason stated above.

    EDIT note here where they actually had to point a 120mm fan right at the board.
    https://bit-tech.net/reviews/tech/gigabyte-z170n-gaming-5-review/7/

    And again all processors overclock different just the way it is. You can buy 2 identical cars and one will outrun the other.

    EDIT again 0.1 is going to help how much?

    Or this: ASUS ROG Strix X470-F

    I built played with your build a little bit: System Builder pcpartpicker.com
    The main things i changed are:
    Added a liquid AIO
    Different MOBO
    Upped the ram capacity (2x16gb) and speed (3600Mhz)
    Doubled the size of the m.2 ssd
    I couldnt find the gpu so i suggest sticking with the gigabyte 5700XT
    Different case cuz the other one honestly it was ugly and it had a psu.The psus that come with cases are ussually trash.

    Aorus X570 Ultra showing CPU temperature -55C and sometimes no boot.
    Hello.
    Some days ago after a boot i noticed that my pump fin was not spining at all after the post. It spinned for a few seconds befor post but then it stopped. I got in the bios settings and I noticed that the cpu temperature was read at -55C. I got in smartfan 5 and i got it to work only by setting the fan mode to PWM instead of automatic. I also set it to full speed. I have my pump connected to cpu_opt port. HWinfo64 and Ryzen master can succesfully show me the cpu temps. Other problems i faces are the foolowing.
  • Sometimes my pc doesn't post and it is stuck in cpu check led untill I completely kill the power from the psu for a few seconds and then i get it back on. Then it posts ok.
  • 2 times when i booted into windows and tried to launch ryzen master i got a failed to initialize error kindly reinstall and after the second reinstall im now unable to get it to work.

    So, I solved it and I'm going to leave this here to help anyone else with the same problem. It was a real nightmare.
    I noticed that even with the computer disconected from the wall power my CPU LED in the post code was not going completely off and i thought it had something to do with the problem. I started unplugging peripherals from the pc. When i unplugged the displayport from my gpu i noticed it went off. Note that the displayport was my 2nd monitor connection as i have my main monitor plugged by dvi.
    Now everything is normal. Temperature readings inthe bios are back and boot is fast and proper.
    As this video states View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6s1cMwzesZI
    some displayport cables have a pin on on position 20 which can deliver power to your pc that they shouldn't have causing those problems. I hope this post helps other people too and buy branded DP cables.

    Will this CPU help me?
    Okay guys-

    I might have made a big mistake, but maybe not? I do not know. I want you to decide.

    I currently have a Ryzen 5 2600x paired with a RTX 2070 Aorus Extreme. I been indulging myself lately into the world of Red Dead Redemption 2. I have noticed very quickly that holy cow does this game eat frames and really reck havoc on hardware.

    As I played, I asked myself what could I do to improve my experience, but at low cost. I thought about my hardware and told myself although an RTX 2070 is not the best its a big leap in price to go from that GPU to an RTX 2080ti where I would want to jump to justify enough performance boost. So I said, okay where else can I improve because the game LOOKS amazing on my RTX 2070, and I understand a better GPU would give me more frames, but its just too much $ to make that jump.... So I thought well maybe a CPU upgrade would give me a little more. Even 5-8 fps would be satisfying to me where I am at right now. So I looked... I researched... I decided to pull the trigger on Ryzen 7 3700x, but let me tell you why. Ryzen 9 3900x Would be a workstation beast absolutely, but it cost nearly $440. So I looked at the 3800x and thought to myself well if I settled there I minds well take the leap and do the 3900x because even the 3800x will run me at least $350 or more. So then I kept searching and wanted to search CPUS for games only. I do not stream or video edit, but I wanted something POWERFUL for what I wanted to use it for. Then I came across the 3700x an 8 core 16 thread beast for only $293 , could it be? Is this true? WAIT WHAT? For gaming purposes alone it says it basically matches the 3900x, and is considered the best gaming cpu for Ryzen. So I threw it into my Amazon cart and bought that bad boy. But, Should I have? will it indeed achieve what I am looking for it to do?

    The new processor might help your performance somewhat, particularly if you are not trying to run the game at max settings. What resolution are you gaming at? It might be worth adjusting graphics settings in the game and seeing how much that can help. Hardware Unboxed did a nice two-part optimization guide for the game that goes over all the settings, showing what kind of impact each has on performance and visuals. The videos are each around 20 minutes though, which might make for a relatively long watch. It is possible to substantially increase performance while still keeping the game looking good though.

    My heating problem is EXTREME
    I do not understand why my cpu is hitting such high temperatures. Under stress tests at 100% load, within a minute it already hits 95 degrees, even just opening a video game, the one I tried with core temp in specific is Battlefront II, it's well into high 80's low 90's range. I'm using the stock fan, but also I haven't overclocked the CPU whatsoever. It could be my case fans not supplying enough help. But I even turned my fans ALL THE WAY UP in bios and still to no evail. It's both loud as hell, and apparently hot as hell too.

    OS - Windows 10
    CPU - AMD Ryzen 3800x
    GPU - RTX 2080SUPER
    Motherboard - Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING
    RAM - 32GIG 3200
    Case - CORSAIR Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA

    I'm also using the default case fans. It's annoying because I tried putting in liquid cooling but I don't think this motherboard supports the H100i, but if it does I would much appreciate help setting it up seeing as though I am having cooling problems lol. Although anything helps at this point, I don't want to literally melt my CPU. I know that 95 degrees is extreme temperatures even for the 3800x, but I'm surprised even at low loads why it's heating up so much so quick. The stock cooler came with thermal paste so it's not that. I've tried reseating the cooler and heat-sink to no prevail. Like I said I put fans to full power. I'm out of any idea that my novice brain can handle. Thanks to anyone who can help. I can also take pictures of the case if needed.

    Here's the H100i full name for specifications - Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM

    Front/bottom fans need to push/pull air into the case. Rear/top fans need to push/pull air out of the case. Air goes in one way, heat comes out the other.

    No worries on the AIO. If it has an AM4 mounting kit, it fits. It'll fit on Any AM4 motherboard. Or AM3/+, or lga11xx Intel.

    The 3800x is an 8core/16thread 105w TDP race engine. Stress tests will use AVX, which is like adding NOS to the mix. And then there's PBO, which will maximize boost, like running that engine on jet fuel. And you wonder at heat output.

    Get your fans seated and oriented correctly. I'd suggest you use the aio, it's far better than the stock cooler, even if the stock cooler is pretty decent. The aio has additional fans, that's a bonus for case airflow. Doesn't matter front or top mounted radiator, as long as the fans move air in the right direction. Set it up correctly and use the iCue software to get it working/performing as it should. That means it must be seated correctly, thermal paste done/cleaned correctly, remove the plastic safety tape from the underside of the pump.

    With that cooler, even Battlefront shouldn't be seeing temps over 60ish.

    Use Ryzen Master to setup the cpu. Windows power plan set to Ryzen Balanced or Microsoft Balanced. Not Performance. Don't worry about idle temps of 40ish to 50ish, that's normal for Ryzens, they don't work like Intels.

    Is an RM750x a good choice for a 2080/3800x/16GB DDR4?
    The reviews look good.

    It is a good solid power supply.
    Corsair RM750x 750W Power Supply – Page 6 – JonnyGURU.com www.jonnyguru.com Just make sure to run 2 PCI-E power cables to the card for stability.
    I'm running a RM850x myself for about a year. Very happy with it.

    Most build done. Need help deciding between a provisional 3600 or just going with 3700x.
    So it's been a 5 years sense I last got a PC, which i don't love 'cause I didn't have much choice on parts, just built it... (960 2gb here).

    Anyway I want a machine to last another 5 plus years. But this time I want to actually you know... enjoy my PC, and actually do something with it. I'll be talking in euros and listing the lowest prices I can get them for.

    I'm sold on the RTX 2070 Super, seems amazing for a 5 year plan.

    Then first though about getting a Ryzen 7 3800x... but found out the 3700x is the sameish and even though I want a good build, I also want to save all the money I can (-50€). Then i read some more and watched a bunch of videos and found that Ryzen 5 3600x (-110€) offers basically the same performance and basically so does the 3600 (-40€).
    So I'm thinking hard about Ryzen 7 3700x vs Ryzen 5 3600 (-140€).

    For the Cooler, not the stock, maybe I'll switch later on but will go for a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition, the 40 bucks are kinda worth it, its even way more silent.

    With these two builds I basically want to list all the best parts I know for the job.

    GPU: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Gaming OC 3X 8G (580€)
    CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X (330€)
    Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition (40€)
    Case: Fractal Design Meshify C TG (90€)
    Mobo: ATX Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite (220€)
    SSD: M.2 2280 Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB (130€)
    PSU: Seasonic Focus Gold GX 750W (130€)
    RAM: G.SKILL Trident Z Neo 2x8GB 3600MHz CL16 (140€)

    Or maybe...

    GPU: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Gaming OC 3X 8G (580€)
    CPU: Ryzen 7 3600 (190€)
    Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition (40€)
    Case: Fractal Design Meshify C TG (90€)
    Mobo: ATX MSI B450 Tomahawk Max (130€)
    SSD: M.2 2280 Western Digital Blue SN550 500GB (80€)
    PSU: Corsair RM Series RM650 2019 (100€)
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V (2x8GB) 3600MHz CL16 (100€)

    How big of an impact would that x570 auros elite have compared to that b450 tomahawk max?

    I read the PSU Corsair RM (2019) are not that good... thoughts?

    Does the Trident Z Neo work that much better for a Ryzen 3000 and a x570 mobo? at least compared to a Ripjaws V. one is supposed to be made for that build and the other for intel?

    The plan would be to either go for the first build and just use it for the next 5 years plus!
    Or...
    Buy the b450 msi tomahawk max or an even cheaper msi that does the same without lights.
    Then wait 2-whatevermax years and buy a new motherboard and CPU right when the time is right.
    Also by saving money on the board too, I wont feel too bad if I have to replace it, when I replace the CPU.

    What do you think?
    Spend the extra lot of cash now and get a PC I think will be just fine for the next 5 years, or save the 300€ now and upgrade later on?

    Can the 3600 even play top games while watching a stream on the other monitor and something else on the other? will I feel for the extra cores and threads.
    Also heard the new consoles will get 8 cores 16 threads which would lead on more games being optimized that way.

    Any and all advice is welcome!

    Edit: can always get a 2700x since either that or the 3600 are going to be upgraded in 2-3 years.

    Your call mate.
    Then the CPU choice will come down to basically what you are going to do with the machine. If its only for gaming and basic multitasking then even a 3600 should be fine for a few years. But if you are going to do any productivity related stuff, you will need all the cores you can get your hands on. Also some CPU intensive games will run better with more cores, not by much though.

    Yes, and you need bios 1201 installed before removing the old CPU.
