Great performance/value ratio 5/11/2020 6:34:55 PM

Pros: -Powerful
-Able to handle anything with ease

Cons: -Included heatsink/fan fine for normal use, but for overclocking, you'll need an upgrade
-Integrated graphics not included

Overall Review: I've always believed in AMD processors. You get better value with them. I mounted this in an MSI X470 motherboard. This processor has no problem handling anything I throw at it. I'm not an extensive gamer, but I do edit videos. This processor has no problem with that at all! I did bench the processor and got it up to 100% CPU usage while overclocked. I was still streaming audio with no stuttering whatsoever. However, it did get very hot so I backed it down. If you're going to stress this processor, be sure you get an aftermarket cooler. I am still waiting on mine, and taking it easy on the processor in the meantime.

AMD RYZEN 5 2600 6-Core 5/11/2020 6:31:31 AM

Pros: - Worked out of the box.
- 2nd Gen Ryzen on a 12nm vs 14nm.
- Easy to overclock to 3.9Ghz on my ASUS ROG STRIX B350-F motherboard.
- AMDs new stock cooler works great and is very quite. I'm not using the stock cooler on my 2600, but on my wife's Ryzen 5 1600 instead. No issues whatsoever. Thermals aren't having any issues on her build.

Cons: - None

Overall Review: - I purchased the 2600 to replace my 1st gen Ryzen 5 1600 and then replace my wife's AM3+ FX chipset with my 1st gen Ryzen. Worked great and I've notice more stable FPS in gaming with the 2600 vs the 1600. Both are great CPUs regardless.

- Make sure to pare Ryzen CPUs with fast DDR4 RAM around 3200Mhz if you can. Ryzen loves high RAM speeds.
- Purchase the 2600 over the 2600x. You can easily overclock this CPU to match those speeds of the 2600x.

Who needs 3rd gen really? 5/5/2020 4:53:21 PM

Pros: - 6 cores
- Good TDP

Cons: - Stealth cooler =/= silent cooler, but it's small so it fits in most cases

Overall Review: Currently paired with an RX570 which (gaming wise) is a waste of a perfectly good Ryzen cpu. Does a great job with blender rendering and Audio DSP handling though.

I bought mine just a month or two before the Ryzen 3000 series came out; if you can shell out for it I hear it's great, but honestly this one runs great and I probably won't need to upgrade for a long time. I mean my GPU needs help but this CPU is a great deal right now. AM4 socket's going to be around for a long while so buy this one and upgrade it in 4 years.
