My first AMD CPU in many, many years

Pros: Fast, benchmarks slightly above spec in CPU-Z on ASRock Fatal1ty X370 GAMING X. Swift performance in applications and games very nicely with MSI GeForce GTX 1050 1050 2G OC. Stock cooler seems to be keeping up.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Would recommend to anyone on a price/performance basis. Intel lost my confidence with all the side-channel attacks. Granted, they apply to AMD as well, but the performance hits to apply robust security fixes are seriously degrading the single-threaded, clock speed and instructions-per-cycle edge that has really defined their products over the past decade. So why pay the premium? I'm looking to Ryzen 2 and next gen Threadripper for future builds.

Absolutely amazing value

Pros: runs fast
Boosts to around 3.4 ghz
6 CORES!
Stock cooler stays cool

Cons: I can't seem to get the motherboard to keep an overclock on the chip, probably not the cpus fault though.

As good as the 1600x

Pros: -Easy to over clock and stable at 3.7 (depends on build of PC)
-Save money over the 1600x buy using the stock cooler. I find it adequate and have not noticed heating issues. (Varies on tower and fan usage, I use a Mid-tower)
-Better RAM compatibility after several firmware updates between AMD and memory companies
-Price to performance is good

Cons: My PC completely crashed during the Spectre and meltdown vulnerability at that time in history. Had to start fresh, luckily this was a new build so I didn't lose crucial data.

Other Thoughts: I bought this somewhat early. Ryzen came out early 2017 and I bought this in Oct 2017. In case this has any relevance in an age where tech moves fast, this processor is working great!

Great bang for your buck!

Pros: picked this up on black friday deal for $189 CAD. It has handled my games, coding with unreal engine with ease.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I actually purchased 2 of these, I built for 2 of my kids which are both into gaming and one who also codes with unreal engine. there have been no issues so far, everything runs super smooth and they have been very impressed. I am really impressed with the price point, equivalent intel chip would have cost close to $100 more so it was a no brainer as I did have a budget.

I love this CPU!

Pros: Overclocked to 3.9 on air with the stock AMD Wraith cooler at 1.35v. Stays pretty cool. Can't wait to see what it can do with a 3rd party cooler! I paid $129 on sale for this with the cooler, and I don't think you could find a better deal anywhere. I bought a XFX rx580 Black gpu at the same time, and they work great together.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Worth more than $129!

Amazing value CPU

Pros: - 6 cores, 12 threads for ~$160, maybe $140 on a good day

- Stock cooler is exceptional. It's quiet, and has good aesthetics.

- Overclocks great. Anyone running a B350 motherboard or above can easily set this chip to 3.7-3.75Ghz all cores, without changing any other settings and it will be stable. Anyone who overclocks seriously may be able to get it to 3.8 or 3.85, but don't expect it to go much further than that.

- Uses 60-70 watts at default, and 75-90 watts depending on your overclock.

- Has a little bit less performance than Intel chips, but costs much less.

Cons: This isn't necessarily a con, but Ryzen likes fast memory like 3200Mhz, which can be a tiny bit more expensive than something like 2400-2666Mhz.

Other Thoughts: This is still an amazing value CPU, but I would probably recommend the 2600 over this.

very nice cpu

Pros: Its very fast, if gaming and recording is your thing, then this is a great option, can run games lick Bf1 or Bo3 while recording 1080p60fps no problem, doesn't heat up much with just the stock cooler, I haven't gotten it to go above 60c even while running a lot of cpu demanding programs, and this is before Overclocking by the way. all in all this is a great cpu, the 6 cores and 12 threads allows insane mutli-tasking, I also use it for animation and rendering, handles it flawlessly. I will be updating this review in one year and see how its doing then, but for the first 2 months, I recommend for anyone.

EDIT: after overclocking to 4.2ghz from the previous overclock of 3.6ghz (not to hard if you use the BIOS) and running stress tests for about 12 hour periods, gaming, more editing, the performance is pretty impressive for the price, I got a 15-18% increase in performance, (now not everyone will get these results by the way, or even be able to overclock to this speed stably, it varies CPU to CPU) and as I said, after one year of owning the CPU I will edit this again to say my thoughts.

Cons: fan can get a bit noisy, but not to bad, only at about 80% fan speed is when it gets noisy.
overclocking is hard with the Ryzen Master, don't even bother with it, it'll just overclock 3 cores and shut down the rest which makes the cpu perform worse, so that's a con I guess.

Other Thoughts: this cpu performs best with 2 or more sticks of ram, so don't expect the full performance with only 1 stick.
also this isn't as good as the intel i5 8400 at gaming until you overclock it, and then the performance isn't that much less, but for playing the same game and streaming or recording, the ryzen performs 7-9% better for a lower price, so I still recommend the ryzen over the Intel.

EDIT: after overclocking I got the performance of the intel I5 8400 and the ryzen 5 1600 to a small 2-3% worse performance of the ryzen from the intel in just gaming, and when recording the ryzen past the intel by a 4-5% increase in performance.

1 year review

Pros: -Still works no issues
-Overclocking has improved and memory support is much higher with Gen2 BIOS
-is obviously still very much relevant
-price is even better than when I bought this at $230
-for some reason I feel paired with the RX 580 STRIX I have, the entire system runs buttery smooth

Cons: -overclocking isn’t stable consistently. I think this is a gen 1 issue. I can have an overclock set in, stable, with good temps and one day 3 weeks later while booting it loops until the bios resets. This sos quite annoying, considering I do nothing different to my pc.
-I’ve noticed a 5-10% degradation in performance since purchase. This may have been from new bios updates to increase stability, or chipset drivers. Not sure. The performance loss is minimal at this level anyway.

Other Thoughts: I know infinity Fabric was designed for speed in speed in mind but anything less than 2666 MHz ram and you’re wasting you’re money.
