great budget processor

Pros: Pros:

- easy to install
- great clock speeds
- amazing price compared to intel
- runs cool and strong

Cons: Cons:

- none so far

Other Thoughts: I’m running this processor with 16gb of 3200mhz ram and an RX580 8gb getting over 170fps on ultra on any title. Coming from an intel 1080ti build I am very happy with this budget processor.

Why didn't I choose this CPU sooner?

Pros: Most people won't require 8 cores. I like the Ryzen 5's higher clock speeds instead.

Cons: More giggleqpurtz would be nice.

Other Thoughts: Yes, I would recommend this CPU and yes, I plan on purchasing the fourth gen of this product.

Great value and versatility

Pros: - 6 cores/12 threads makes this a nice budget friendly productivity CPU
- Games quite well
- included cooler is better then what has been included with AMD in the past and in my opinion, seems better then the standard intel coolers.

It's been a very long time since i'd used an AMD CPU for anything ( I'm talking since the days of the Athlon 64x era ) It's nice to see them bringing out more competitive options. I'm not a major triple A gamer but i do enjoy playing some Modded Fallout New Vegas, Fallout 4, Fallout 3, Civ V and VI , Skyrim, Oblivion, The Witcher 2 and 3, etc. as well as some video editing and CAD work. This CPU does a bit of everything for me and seems to do well at it all.

Cons: - As the standard cooler ramps up in speed along with the XFR 2.0 it does tend to get a bit loud.

Other Thoughts: Build

- Asus ROG Strix B450F
- G. Skill Trident Z 3200MHZ 2X8
- Msi Gaming Z RTX 2060 6GB

AMD R5 2600X

Pros: - Price!!!! (Got it on sale)
- Can easily OC with the Ryzen Master Utility (Excellent program)
- Comes with a stock cooler (Works fairly well if you don't OC)

Cons: - None so far

Other Thoughts: Always been an AMD fan and this CPU has continued those feelings. I am currently using the Max Boost tech and for what I have built and the games I play on 1440p it is an excellent and well priced CPU. I will eventually get an AIO cooler and OC when I have a better case for cooling. I would recommend this to some one looking for a mid lvl budget build CPU. It will be fast enough for everything you need for gaming and has the option to OC if you choose, can't argue with that price!
