I am looking forward to upgrading my system at the end of November to a ryzen 7 3800X with the Gigabyte X570 aorus pro. My only concern is that I think my 4 year old dark rock 3 will not fit.I do not recognise the mounting system that I see on the pictures of the X570 mobo and seem way different to the mounting brackets I have left in the box. 

After a quick google search I've also noticed that AMD changed the way their mounting system works.

 

My question to you, the reader is: is the highlighted mounting bracket compatible with the X570 motherboards.

If it doesn't say AM4 on the box then it doesn't, no. 

You can probably ask Be Quiets support and ask them for new mounting hardware. If you have the receipt you'll probably get it. 

 

I am wondering though, why a 3800X and no new 5000 series CPU?

Fortunate enough, it does say AM4. As I said it's just that I don't see a way that the highlighted mounting bracket will fit in this.

I'll be sure to ask be quiet to be sure.

 

I also am very intrigued by the new 5000 series. It's that with customs and tax an additional 50 euro is put to it and I don't really have the budget to spend 500 euro on the new ryzen 7. However the reason I'm going for the 3800x is because it's price is getting lower by the week. The price difference between the 5800x and 3800x is around 200 euro which I really don't think is that worth it.

This is the current expected price for the 5800X

While the price for the 3800X

You can see that there was a spike near the end of September which I expect is because the 5000 series was announced but within a week it went down to what it was already sold at for the past 3 months. I want to see how the market will go with it so I'm pre emptily thinking of getting the 3800X.

For AMD sockets, you typically have to remove the stock / factory black plastic mounting clips.

Then you install the NEW mounting system included with the CPU cooler, and use that to mount the cooler.

 

Same thing for Intel...but Intel just doesn't have stock mounting brackets...just 4x holes.
