The threads have been merged. You get a maximum of one thread for your various related questions about your overclocking of your 5800X. Not two. Not three. Not four or more. The other option is zero threads.

In any case, the answer remains identical:

  • You will see small benefits to overclocking a 5800X on any motherboard
  • If you don't have the money to get one of the really good motherboards that can see this small benefit, then you there's no purpose replacing a motherboard you're currently using with a 5800X
  • If you don't have the money to buy expensive parts, you're far better off not overclocking anyway because, for the 112th time or so, the benefits are going to be relatively small.
