    Not a bad deal but I wouldn’t recommend anyone to pair their expensive 5950x with a low end board.
    The X570 Gaming X is a low-end motherboard featuring 5+2 phase (1x 4C10N + 2x 4C06N) Powerstage combo that should be for at most a 5800X, not a 5950X.
    I recommend selling it and personally value it at around $120-130 new on the second hand market (161.85 on Amazon au). Spend an extra $80 and buy something like a Aorus Pro instead

      As the VRM spreadsheet also notes, this board offers fairly little in the terms of I/O available.

      4 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0, Ethernet, PS/2 ports (I don't know, apparently there's a niche of people using these still), HDMI (not in use here because the 5950x has no iGPU), and a few (3!) 3.5mm jacks for audio. (Out, in, microphone.)

      They're also being a little misleading on the product page, describing it as a 10+2 board.

      Perhaps for a basic workstation (with an absurd amount of CPU threads), this could work out.

      You might as well just buy the cpu from Harris Tech on eBay with gift cards if you're selling the motherboard

      EoFY is a bad time to sell in the second hand market

      exactly what I think

    •  

      Can I ask .. if I am running 5950x NOT for gaming .. mostly Adobe Illustrator & Adobe Photoshop .. is Gigabyte X570 Gaming X still a bad motherboard to pair with ?

      planning to get this with 16gb x 4 pieces RAM & 6GB RTX 2060 Gigabyte OC

        In terms of whether it's a bad MB to pair with, it's still a pretty bad MB since you can frequently hit max current draw when you have multiple programs running at once or have 1 intensive program hitting the max. Your performance will also be limited by a bit as a result.

        I also wouldn't recommend getting a 5950X for Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop since both programs are mainly constrained to 8 cores. So you get about equal performance out of a 5800X which is significantly cheaper and runs much cooler.

          u just saved me some money

          i think i might stick with either i9-11900K or 5900X
          Intel i9-11900K (8C / 16T / 3.50Ghz / Q1 2021)
          AMD Ryzen 9 5900X (12C / 24T / 3.7Ghz / May 2020)

    I put mine in a Gigabyte Aorus x570 Master.

    •  

      I love my aorus master mobo. Have you seen the new fanless version of the master. Doesn't have bios switches but does have a safe mode boot button.

      • +1 vote

        I only got mine yesterday but it still has the fan, unless it's not out yet.

        Edit: I see now it's the x570s model that is fanless. I can't find any for sale though. Probably just as well because I paid a fortune for this one as it is.

        •  

          I paid $550 a year ago. The silent version isn't out yet and it does look better but I prefer bios switches. The switches are the main reason I got the master.

    Bought 2 of these, thanks OP

    Is B550 Aorus Elite good enough to handle the 5950X?

  • +2 votes

    I don't understand why the 5950x is $1,249.00 but it's $1199 with a motherboard I don't need.

      Stores need to order a lot of motherboards to get the CPUs so they're offloading them cheap.

      •  

        doesn't really answer the question.

        he's asking how the CPU costs $1249 if bought just the CPU but CPU + a crappy motherboard is cheaper at $1199.

        • +2 votes

          Too cryptic? Basically a lot of suppliers are saying if you want to buy X amount of CPUs/GPUs then you need to buy XX amount of motherboards. Like 10 motherboards for every RTX30xx for example. This means stores have an excess amount and they want to clear them.

          What's a good strategy for offloading too many? Sell them with a CPU!

  •  

    Great price but imagine pairing this CPU with this board 😂

    •  

      any recommendation which motherboard to use?

      •  

        Depends on you budget but I wouldn't go anything less than an gigabyte Aorus pro/Asus ROG/MSI tomahawk. Either x570 or b550 doesn't really matter. Asus ROG crosshair viii is probably the best though if you have the money.

          thank you

  •  

    Don't know why but every other CPU+board combo will be on crack. You get one good one and one bad one

  •  

    Cheaper than the CPU only…

    I think I will buy this and sell my unopened 5900x and that Gaming X board..

    •  

      How much?

      •  

        Will let you know once I get my hands on this bundle first

        •  

          Sounds good!

          •  

            @Olddirtydingo: Sorry mate, I dropped the idea as I really do not need a 5950X and the extra $$$ ought to go into better ram instead.
            Apologies for the change of mind.

    Asus Dark Hero is the go with this CPU.
