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.

Couldn't get it work 5/30/2020 6:09:54 AM

Pros: Can't tell any.

Cons: Supposed to be a placeholder CPU for my Living Room ITX build based on an ASRock X570 ITX MB. Unfortunately, the ASRock mainboard do not boot up with this CPU even though it's AM4 and a latest model CPU. Yes, I didn't do my homework well by checking supported CPU list in ASRock website. But there's no excuse why AMD cannot work closer with their mainboard partners to expand CPU support list, at least on latest model chips!

Overall Review: Make sure your board's latest BIOS supports this chip.

Great little CPU 5/13/2020 6:27:39 AM

Pros: I bought this to rebuild my PC on a really tight budget. It's a great little chip. Paired it with a refurbished ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F motherboard. Since it's unlocked I was able to set the XMP memory profile to the full 3200 the memory I got for it was capable of. I really like that.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: The Vega 3 graphics isn't much to speak of, even when I set the memory to 3200. Thought it's fast enough to run Minecraft well, and other simple games. To run Fortnite you'd have to play at the lowest setting for pretty much everything. That's all I tested before putting an old nVidia GT 450 in the computer. Planning on upgrading the GPU first chance I get. Still, I have no regrets on buying it. Two Zen 1 cores at a great price!
