The only possible reason to get the 3800x is a chance at a better binned overclocking CPU, otherwise it's a waste of money over the 3700x with only a 100Mhz difference. That is only gonna be maybe 1-3fps in games.

The Wraith that comes with the 3800x does the job. You won't overclock much with it but it's a good cooler.

Is the 3800 worth it? Not really, the 3700x is great too.

The 3600x & 3800x have become much more interesting in the past 2 months since the prices have dropped. I've seen as low as a $30 premium for the 3800x and a $10 dollar premium for the 3600x. I'd happily pay that premium for either for the extra single core boost/ OC potential. At the launch price premium not so much.
