Definitely Met My Expectations!

Pros: -Extremely easy to install
-Great packaging and design

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this CPU for anyone who's looking for something that's not too expensive but still really good for the money. I didn't have any issues installing and there's nothing faulty with the performance.

Amazing processor

Pros: -great gamiing fps
-more then enough for 95% of consumers needs
-$100 cheaper then the 2700X
-most chips boost a little higher and stay there longer then the 2700X because less cores producing heat
-Uses less power and makes less heat, cheaper to operate and easier to cool

Cons: knowing that it's probably a perfectly good 8 core chip that has two cores disabled just so it can fill in the gap in the product line is kinda irritating even if understandable. But once you have it in your system you wonder about what those two extra cores could do if you had access to them.
Needs an x470 or higher end B450 motherboard to take advantage of it's features. If you aren't going to spend $150+ on a motherboard get the regular 2600

Other Thoughts: I put a custom loop in my 2600X build, once bios updates came out unlocking precision boost overdrive and enabling you to raise all the thermal and power limits mine would easily boost into the 4.4ghz. It would get hot, and it would really strain my cooling system doing that, especially considering it shares it with a vega 56 that thinks its a 64 aio. The performance in games and it's ability to multi task without that slightest hinit that the system is under strain is really something nice to see out of AMD. comperable performance out of an intel system would cost you so much more it's kinda shocking anyone would throw that much money away. You could use this if you are a pro gamer and you wouldn't ever lose a game because of it. And if your're an up and coming gamer and you were thinking about getting an i9 system to give you an advantage. Get this instead, take that extra $600+ you saved and upgrade your video card, mouse, keyboard, and MONITOR to a 144hz or better and then you'll have spent your money wisely.
