Performance matches Intel Core i7-3960x for a fraction of the price

Pros: - 65W TDP!
- Socket pins are on the CPU instead of the socket (nice vs. Intel's LGA sockets where the pins bend if you look at them funny)
- 6C/12T brings a LOT to the table
- Did I mention that this thing ONLY needs 65W of cooling capacity?!
- Excellent value for the dollar
- Longevity - if I need to replace the CPU or Motherboard, I'll have a much easier time

Cons: - The Wraith heatsink it comes with isn't the LED model. :(

Overall Review: This CPU is the one I settled on after a bit of migration and experimentation with the Ryzen line, ultimately replacing an Intel Core i7-3960x on the x79 platform. I had originally tried a Ryzen 3 1300X to see if I could get away with slightly less processing power now that my computing needs have changed (I'm no longer doing massive jobs in After Effects), but the performance degradation was fairly noticeable. Moving to this CPU, though, feels like I have my old i7 back, and at a fraction of the cost (while consuming less power and running MUCH cooler). Ultimately, I am extremely pleased with this purchase, and am greatly pleased that AMD is back in the game.

I expect similar performance could come from a Core i5 (and in fact many benchmarks have comparable i5 models beating this one by a few points), but for me, the longevity of AMD's sockets and chipsets wins. Intel's Z270 platform was only relevant for a single CPU generation, and the Z370 platform doesn't support the previous generation. There is also very little incentive for Intel to change this, while AMD has pledged that long-term compatibility is one of their goals.

AMD RYZEN 5 1600

Pros: 6 Cores 12 Threads?!
Beast of a CPU.
performs better than Intel Core i7-7700K and just under Intel Xeon X5650 according to Cinebench
great AMD Wraith Spire Cooler included

Cons: absolutely none.

Overall Review: I wanted to build my first PC and was torn between prices and specs and blah blah. Initially, I was planning on building the typical Intel system, but with research, I quickly learned that I could build a much better, specs-wise, system at the same price with AMD. I don't think a lot of people know what AMD is now capable of without looking into it. I know I wasn't.

Freezing

Pros: None

Cons: I was an AMD customer for many years until I kept having problems with freezing so I went with Intel and never had freezing issues. My intel became outdated so I thought I would try AMD again and now I'm back to having problems with freezing. Should have learned my lesson the first time.

Overall Review: Not worth it

A bit disappointed but shouldn’t be.

Pros: Is everything that AMD said it would be.

Cons: Just 3.8 on oc no matter what settings run. Just hoping for 4. No big deal.

Great CPU at a great price

Pros: 6 "big" cores, 12 threads.
Relatively inexpensive, when on sale, for what you get.

Gen 1 Ryzen but still a lot more effective at most workloads than the Bulldozer based FX8370 in my main (old) PC and probably cheaper than an equivalently powerful Intel CPU + motherboard.

Cons: None really.

Maybe first gen Ryzen and later models might be faster at the same clock or more power efficient if you care about that sort of thing??

Overall Review: 6 cores for $123? Great deal.

Used this to build a headless server box and it was able to host 6 Minecraft server instances in Docker containers simultaneously without breaking a sweat, even though one of the Minecraft worlds had a layer of TNT 3 blocks down that was undergoing a continuous chain reaction explosion at the time. Mind you 16Gb RAM and a 512Gb SSD likely helped.
