Damaged Packaging 2/22/2020 12:17:33 PM

Overall Review: I opened the air cooler that's provided and the plastic was all cut up as if the fan was just thrown into the box.
I had to scrape plastic off of the preapplied thermal compound.
This is my first build also so it makes me nervous.
My power supply arrives on the 26th. I may be back with a better review.

Fast CPU! 2/21/2020 3:44:07 PM

Pros: - Came with a CPU cooler (but ended up using an AIO anyway)
- Incredibly fast in multi-threaded tasks/encoding videos.
- Able to stream and game comfortably.

Cons: - Runs VERY hot
- BIOS settings is still having trouble hitting advertised boosts for now. Hopefully will be corrected again later on down the road.

Overall Review: I didn't end up getting this from NewEgg, but run mine on an X470 board with a negative voltage offset of 0.1v and PBO on auto.
Would like to upgrade to an X570 if the price is right to unlock some other features.

I'll always stick to AMD because their CPUs are always better. 2/21/2020 11:37:21 AM

Overall Review: Upgraded from a Ryzen 5 2400g with onboard Vega 11 graphics. This is a great CPU for the price to performance. It even beats the 7 2700x in a lot of aspects. I compared this to Intels core I5 9600k and ultimately went with AMD because the3600x just performs better all around.

Impressive! 2/20/2020 9:05:09 AM

Pros: -Powerful for Multiprocessing
-Easy to install
-Lower power consumption compared to first generation*
-Cooler running compared to first generation*
-Faster running than the first Generation*
-Zen Architecture!
-RGB Setup for boards that don't support RGB through USB header
- Multi-pipe Heatsink (Wraith Prism cooler)

Cons: -If boost is on, engages the boost constantly causing high power consumption and high heat generation (Solved by turning off boost in Bios. This is an issue that AMD says is being looked into and is across all 3rd Gen currently...)

-The heat sink (Wraith Prism cooler) is not completely flat on the base that contacts the chip. While not entirely an issue, for those using their own heat transfer compound such as Arctic Silver it complicates the application as they have to not only apply it to the chip surface but now fill the grooves on the heatsink properly and smooth them out properly or there won't be appropriate cooling... (a real pain in the rear end!)

Overall Review: I knocked an egg off only due to the on going issue with the Boost running too frequently causing excessive power usage and heat along with the design of the Wraith Prism cooler heatsink not being completely smooth across the bottom making it a pain if applying your own heatsink compound.

Outside of the above mentioned, The Ryzen 7 3700x is an impressive improvement over my previous Ryzen 7 1700! Nearly twice the processor flat bench tests and thanks to the new 3rd generation board that I installed with this new processor, the Asus ROG Strix X570-F, the processor is able to work at it's fullest!

To give insight on the first mentioned issue. With the boost off, the CPU runs with a constant idle temperature of 38c. With Boost on, the constant idle temp moves up to a constant 62c. No change in programs running. No additional windows open. This is obviously an issue. The previous Ryzen 1700 Idle was 41c and with boost was only 44c. There WAS an increase, but only a couple degrees... not nearly 25... so I feel an egg drop is in order until this issue is resolved even though this, from what I've read, is a generation issue.

The Wraith Prism cooler, it is a quiet running cooler. Just as quiet as the previous Spire was on the Ryzen 1700. The only time I've ever heard either kick up was when they were maxed but then it is hard to tell if it was the Wraith or Spire making the noise or all the other fans kicking up when the system was being pressed. When pushing the fan to max while using software, and the case is closed, the fan can be heard but only softly to me. This may be due to the case I have, which IS a sold case but it is a steel case that has no window in it. Build for airflow and cooling, not really for looks. It does its job well, even though at this point it is beginning to age. A next upgrade will be the time a new case will have to come into play sadly. Fixed incomes do make these kind of upgrades hard...

This brings us to the RGB. While it has the traditional 4pin, it also came with the setup for other kinds, including a USB connector! So those who don't have RGB it appears you can still get your Wraith to light up, though it will likely simply cycle through colors (better than nothing if you want it!) With it hooked into my Auora headers, it looks very pretty matching the board and Geil chips <3

This is most definitely a recommendation I would give to anyone who is a gamer, a streamer, or someone who simply doe a lot with their PC. It is a hard working chip that knows how to do a lot of things at one time.

Ryzen 3600 2/20/2020 6:23:10 AM

Pros: Fast
Its AMD
Its the new 7nm chip
ITS AMD

Cons: mmmm nope!

Overall Review: I've had AMD processors since the AMD Athlon dual core first came out. I have zero regrets from switching from Intel to AMD. I upgraded from a 1600x to this and there is a difference for sure. I basically use it for gaming and certain programs, no video editing or anything like that. Processor is quick and does what i need to it and that's all i can ask for.

This is the best bang/buck as of now. Stellar performance. 2/19/2020 8:29:25 AM

Pros: No issues install. Everything I got compatible and working out of the box. Upgraded from 2400g to this and upgraded a 1060 3gb to a 2069 super. More than double the performance across the board

Cons: Included cooler should be the rgb version. Not eligible for price match to m1cr0 center.

Overall Review: Stop reading reviews and buy it.
