Affordable CPU, but take note that there is no onboard video 7/26/2020 3:15:02 PM

Pros: -Cheap for economy gaming PC
-Easy installation

Cons: -No onboard GPU. This wasn't an issue because I bought a gaming GPU, but this is the first unit I have ever built that didn't have onboard graphics and I've built a few AMD systems albeit a while ago. Only wish this was more clearly expressed on the purchase page as it would have saved me loads of time troublshooting why my MoBo wouldn't post.

Overall Review: -Good for economy gaming PC, but I would not recommend for an economy non-gaming system due to the lack of on board graphics.
-Make sure you will be running another GPU when pricing your system

Effortless and efficient clock up and down.
Excellent price for 6 cores.

Purchased for a Budge PC for my daughter 5/14/2020 1:49:33 PM

Pros: Low price
Does what it's supposed to

Cons: No leds or RGB on stock cooler

Overall Review: I bought this for a budget gamer pc for my 13 year old daughter.

Specs:

Ryzen 3 1200
Gigabyte B450M DS3h
Asus GTX 1650 OC
16gb (2x8gb) OLOy Warhawk RGB
Samsung 512 gb ssd
darkFlash DLM22 Mint Green case
750w PS

Right now, she's learning how to play Overwatch on PC after killing it on ps4. I set graphics to high or ultra where possible and am getting pretty good game play, however, I had her older brother turn them down a bit to improve game play for her.

When she gets a bit older, I'll be able to upgrade her a better CPU and GPU..
