Fantastic Budget CPU. Great Entry To Ryzen And The "Zen" Architecture 8/19/2020 12:29:04 AM

Pros: -Fast Enough For Office Applications.
-Great For An HTPC
-Low Heat Output And Power Usage
-Can Run Aftermarket CPU Cooler At Really Low Fan Speeds And It Still Runs Cool.
-Is Unlocked So With The Right Motherboard It Can Be Overclocked To 3.8-4.1 GHZ For About 10-12 Percent More Performance On Average
-Can Only Game On Older Games With The Internal Video Built Into It. (Vega 3)
-With An Appropriate Video Card Though (AMD RX 570, nVidia GTX 1060,AMD RX5500XT or nVidia GTX 1660) You Can Play 720p High Settings In Most Games or 1080p Low.

Cons: -None

Overall Review: -I Would Recommend This APU (CPU+Internal Video Together In The Same Die) To Those Who Need A Cheap Budget PC For Simple Online Games,Homework Or Other Office Work.

-It Is Also Great For Streaming And Playing Back DVD's/Blu-Ray On A Budget. Can Handle 1440p Video Without Breaking A Sweat Just Can't Game At That Resolution.

GOT IT FAST! 7/28/2020 1:28:29 PM

Cons: I just cant say if it works good, Ordered a MB from this site, came in same box tracking as this processor but can not power up. Do not know if it is board or processor ( power supply checks out and is brand new. Prob have to return BOTH to know what is what.

Overall Review: cant say till i figure this out. board or processor is not powering up.

Slick lil cpu for my mom's pc 7/24/2020 6:43:55 PM

Pros: runs super low wattage, was able to undervolt a ton. whole pc uses as much power as an incandescent bulb. mmm more like half a bulb O.o recently swapped in a fanless psu, the nightjar, and just put a dualy air cooler on it with no fans, doesnt go above 50 degrees celsius under full load.

Overall Review: umm, ideal for light pc use, watching netflix and browser stuff. like it says, got it for my mom. I'm sure it can run some light games, though it won't be used for that.

Great little CPU for the price, with a small drawback 6/20/2020 8:13:57 PM

Pros: - Cheap as chips
- Hyperthreading
- Low TDP
- More than enough power for my HTPC
- Displays in 4K no problem

Cons: - DOES NOT SUPPORT NVMe SSD (see more in review below)
- Included heatsink fan has a bit of "swishh" sound
- First gen Ryzen architecture means it's not actually a 3000-series chip but a reheated 1000-series

Overall Review: Great price, ideal for a budget build. I used it to refresh my HTPC that was still running on 10+ years old hardware. The 2 cores/4 threads configuration is more than enough power for the HTPC and the 192 shaders integrated GPU will display any video at 4K resolution.

The 35W TDP means it'll run cool, so less fan noise in the living room. I found the included heatsink fan to have a bit too much of a "swishh" noise, I swapped that for an Arctic Cooler Alpine 64 CO and it's great.

I had only one disappointment with this CPU and it's something I had to figure out the hard way. Apparently the Athlon series of AM4 processors do not support NVMe SSDs, but it's never mentioned anywhere in the product description. After putting the system together, my NVMe SSD wasn't showing up in BIOS. After researching a bit, I noticed it was mentioned way down in the motherboard specs that Athlons will only support SATA SSDs in the M.2 slot. I guess most people buying a cheap CPU will opt for an equally cheap storage solution, but I had hoped to pair it with a 120GB entry-level NVMe SSD for a zippy little HTPC rebuild.

Overall great little chip, minus the SSD issue.
