memoryexpress is bugged right now. It shows the "Back orders" as in stock. It was driving me nuts so I turned it off :p

CC is broken as well I think.

Not sure I'd trust CC online ordering anyhow, I guess the notification so you could run to the store quickly might be of help to some.

I had the 5600 and 5800 in cart no problem, while I pondered which to get. Finally checked out with the 5600.

5800x showed up today. Will start seeing how she does tonight. Quick test before work showed a SC boost of 4.85GHz.

EDIT: Make that 5GHz.

My 5600x showed up. I am a fish out of water with these AMD chips. I would like to OC but have no idea how. I will have to learn I guess...

What board? If your board has the new voltage frequency curve under 'AMD overclocking' in the bios, use it. There are a few threads in the OC section here. Otherwise, don't bother yet. Boost is a lot better on these CPU's.

I have an ASUS TUF Gaming Plus. I will look for frequency curve. If I find it hopefully someone can suggest what to do with it.

I doubt my 5600x is very good. So far it takes 1.325v to be stable at 4.675Ghz all core

IMO that is going to be too much voltage for a 24/7 OC. Honestly I think just letting boost do its own thing is a good idea.

And your board won't have it yet. For Asus boards, only a couple of the ROG boards have beta bioses w/ the curve editor. Should be in the next update tho.
