Fantastic processor

Pros: Very fast and powerful, comparable in strength to Intel i7's
Brand new processor, so it's only gonna get better as they fine-tune it
Great price compared to Intel

Cons: I bought this Ryzen shortly after the new Ryzen 1st gen was released, and it had some growing pains due to new motherboards and RAM issues. But that all got sorted out with BIOS updates within 6 months, and the system is operating at full potential that I dreamed of. Absolutely wonderful speed.

Other Thoughts: It's been great so far. I overclocked it all the way up to 4.0 GHZ yesterday, although my particular processor needs too much extra voltage to safely do that, so I dropped it back down to 3.9 and I can leave it at that 24/7. You may get lucky and get one that can handle it better than mine did, if you're so inclined to try.

I happened to get this on combo pack sale when combo'd with an ASRock AB350 Fatal1ty Gaming K4 motherboard for 50$ off, plus the Motherboard was 5$ off already AND had a 20$ rebate going on. So that's why I got this, I was originally gonna go with the 1600 model because that's a bit cheaper and has it's own CPU fan already (which is quite good from what I've read). But the discounts made it worthwhile to upgrade to the slightly higher model, and I haven't been disappointed at all with it!

With a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU fan, I've been at about 30c for base temperature and even during stress tests and overclocking, I think the highest it's gotten is 70c. So, it's worked great and I highly recommend it to everyone.

Fantastic Chip, Better Price

Pros: - Incredibly cost effective
- Easily overclocked, AMD now has clocking software so you don't have to mess around in BIOS
- Moderate temperatures

Cons: - Clock speeds are inconsistent across chips. Apparently some people here can get this thing up to 4.5, yet I can't even get mine past 3.92

Excellent Cost to Benefit Ratio

Pros: Cost vs Intel
Speeds and Number Cores and threads
Excellent multi tasking ability.
144 FPS in Star Wars the old Republic. Archeage, and Final Fantasy XIV. (Combined with GTX 1070ti)

Cons: AMD Power Management profile (seems to install automatically)
difficult to overclock

Other Thoughts: When attempting to overclock (even with motherboard genies) you may lock the core multipliers and nullify your speeds. If this happens disable overclocking especially if running the Ryzen Power Management Profile from AMD.

1 year review Ryzen 1600x

Pros: This was an incredibly easy processor to setup. I waited after the initial release for the bios revisions to catch up for ram compatibility. I'm running on a Asus crosshair VI extreme mobo. My overclock is at 4.00ghz all core boost @ 1.375v with the 16gb gskill ram running the set d.o.c.p @3200mhz. It's stable and fast and did not break the bank conpared to an Intel build at the time. It's nice that I can upgrade to the gen 2 Ryzen at anytime with a bios update as well while retaining my mobo. Great job with Ryzen AMD.

Cons: none

A very well-rounded cpu

Pros: Overclocks well (4.1ghz), a multi-tasking demon, single-threaded performance is nothing to great too.

Cons: Does not come with heatsink.

Other Thoughts: The consensus best-value cpu of 2017, it's out-performed consistently by 8th gen i5/i7s games but my inconsequential margins.

It works

Pros: Good enough to encode a 1080p 60fps handbrake video with and play an mmo like bns with. Game load times suffer a bit, but gameplay itself is still smooth.

Cons: Lousy overclocker. Can't get to 3.8ghz without turning the voltage up to 1.38v. Can't get 3.9 even at 1.4v.

Other Thoughts: EDIT: Almost 1 year update. Aged poorly. After about 10 months of use, it can barely stay stable at mild overclocks during cpu encoding tasks. I have it on 3.65ghz @ 1.4v. It plays games fine. But it crashes encoding programs often. The pc doesn't crash, so the cpu is just not keeping up with the demand of the encoding program. I have to run the encode 2-4x before I get a successful result. When this happened before, I'd dial it down and it'll run great for a while. The problem is, this is already getting to normal boost numbers. Any lower and it wouldn't be an overclock anymore. This is all without getting over 77c in any load.

This was compared to 3.8ghz @ 1.38v a year ago. Considering the safe limit everyone suggests is 1.4v, it just didn't hold up very well.
