from completed build 7MM Red Water Mini
Initial build had a Ryzen 3600 in it. I built a computer for a friend and decided to upgrade the processor after installing the 3600 in his system. Was going to get the 3700x but the 3800X was on sale for about 5% more at the time of purchase and that made the performed difference between the 2 Ryzen 8-cores worth the upgrade. As with my 3600 the 3800x works best basically running stock. With my cooling I have boost clocks up to 4550mhz and all core of around 4200mhz. Tide temperatures never exceed 82C and CPU 70C. Idles around 40C Tdie and low 30's CPU. No complaints with this processor.

I initially intended to get the 3900X, however I couldn’t find it in stock anywhere and in all honesty, it was probably overkill for my needs. The extra 4 cores also came at a hefty price increase over the 3800X which is a good sweet spot for me. It performs as expected and boosts without any problem while keeping below 75 degrees with my Noctua D-15 air cooler.

So happy to be apart of the Red team with the amazing stuff they're doing these days. I had intel for several years in my previous build and it was good but intel is doing shady things and I just don't want to support them. This is a huge upgrade and should make this easily a 10 year PC. As far as value, normally the 3700x is a better deal, but I was able to snag this for an insanely low price on black Friday for essentially the same price as the 3700x.
In general, the value is still monumental!
The included cooler is super nice but I already had a H100i liquid cooler so I just stuck with that.

With basic PBO enabled all cores are hitting between 4,475 to 4,525 Ghz. BIOS and OS optimizations should hopefully boost its performance further.

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic! This is pretty much a higher binned 3700x that demolishes any task I throw at it. On sale? Get it. If not, just stick with the 3700x to save a few doll-hairs. You won't be disappointed either way.

Was able to get to 4.5 but had to bring it back down to 4.4 to become stable. Powerfull cpu but it comes at a premium.

I initially intended to get the Ryzen 3700X but the price of Ryzen 3800x was slashed on the day I went to buy the 3700x. The difference in price was only 1000 Rupees (14 USD). So I thought why not, and bought the Ryzen 3800x instead.

Awesome CPU! Manage to pick one up for the price of a 3700x. Haven't done much in the way of OC since it boosts to 4.4GHz with ease.
