Beast mode at this price

Pros: -6 cores, 12 threads
-Unlocked
-Extremely cheap
-Very good at multitasking
-Relatively cheap mobos compared to blue team
-Very efficient, only 65W
-Comes with a decent stock cooler
-Great for gaming, streaming & video editing/rendering

Cons: -Would be nice if performed a bit better in single core but at this price.. I can't complain.

Other Thoughts: -Picked up 1600 at MS and with $30 off (w/ mobo deal) only cost $50 afterwards. Best CPU deal I've ever gotten.
-On stock cooler I managed to get 3.8GHz at 1.25V (any higher and stress testing temps got a bit too high for my linking) but that's because of a stock cooler. It's a total beast & seems to be stable at 4GHz but first needs a better cooler.
-Performs just as well as my 1700X while gaming @ Ultrawide 1080p.
-Cinebench R15 (1600 3.8GHz w/ DDR4 3000mhz CL15 VS 1700X 4GHz w/ DDR4 3600mhz CL18) 1600 scores: 157 single core, 1302 multicore - 1700X scores 162 single core, 1787 multicore.

Fantastic price to performance ratio

Pros: I've been loyal to AMD since I began building my own PCs in 2005 because they offer a great value for the price you pay compared to the Intel CPUs. This CPU has been no exception, solid as always. I overclocked mine to 3.5ghz and with the stock cooler it works great.

Cons: None

Great Budget Cpu

Pros: Price, performance

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This might be an older Ryzen cpu but it still has amazing performance out the box, While its not as good at multitasking as my Ryzen 7 2700x it is a good little performer, If you looking to build a budget working/gaming rig or just a game rig this little guy does the job.

Pleasantly surprised... Gets the job done

Pros: Inexpensive
6/12
Great for modern games
Clear upgrade path

Cons: For the price... none.

Other Thoughts: I can't say enough about the value of this six core, 12 thread CPU. Upgraded from an Intel Haswell Dual Core. Two cores does not cut it anymore for most AAA games. Quad core CPUs are now borderline. Picked up Ryzen 5 1600 , 16 GB Team Vulcan ddr4 3200, a Silicon Power P34A80 512 GB NVMe SSD, and a Gigabyte AB350M-DS3H motherboard. All told about 350 bucks. System posted first try. Installed Windows 10 Pro. Installed Firefox. Updated chipset drivers from the Gigabyte website, installed GPU (RX 470) drivers via AMD website. Downloaded BIOS F30 from Gigabyte website to USB drive and flashed BIOS. Enabled XMP in BIOS and RAM runs at 3200.

After a couple of online tips I was able to modestly overclock all six cores of the Ryzen 1600 to 3.8 GHz with headroom for more.

I've always been an Intel guy. The word on the street was that Ryzen first gen. does not perform all that well and has issues with faster memory. With the latest BIOS updates to AM4 motherboards nothing could be further from the truth. This system is very snappy and plays all games at 1080p like a champ. What else... oh yeah! ZEN 2!

Amazing!

Pros: Very affordable
great performance
great performance per dollar
stock cooler is sufficient!
AMD is Back!

Cons: zero

Other Thoughts: I have been a long time Intel Fanboy and it has been a longtime (Thunderbird) since AMD could even contend with intel.
although back then the quality of boards and Chipsets were poor as was thermo. Its seems that is not even the case with Ryzen. So I did my first personal All AMD Build ever and can only say see ya Intel. definitley this was my most affordable gaming PC ever and my most satisfying.

for a budget build it really good

Pros: fast for what you pay
good for some video editing and gaming
all around a decent CPU
6 cores

Cons: not a grate OC'er as its Intel counterpart
intel is better for more $

Other Thoughts: i would recommend this for a budget build its grate for that if you can get the 2600 its better or wait for zen 2 to come or just want more performance and cant wait go for a i9 9600k or if you have the money as of right now the i9 9900k is the best for 1080p gaming if your looking for higher res gaming like 4k the amd 1600/2600 will do just fine if you have the GPU for it

Has done everything I've asked of it so far.

Pros: For me, the greatest pro of AMD is the dollar per processing speed ratio. The Ryzen 5 1600 has done everything I've asked it to do while being super stable, granted I haven't tried to stress the processor at all yet, but for your everyday machine this chip will have no problem running what you need it to.

Cons: The mounting hardware on the heatsink was a little bit of a pain to get seated completely on the board.

Other Thoughts: If I were to rebuild my computer tomorrow, this is the first CPU I'd look at.

Best deal in town!!

Pros: Fast and efficient
Amazing price.
Stock cooler is great which saves you about $30 minimum.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This CPU comes with a much better cooler than the Ryzen 5 2600. The heatsink is almost 2x the size...
