Pros: I finally upgraded from a first Gen Ryzen to a Fifth Gen Ryzen, and the results are satisfying. Got this when there was a promo code for 15$ off, worth every buck. Would buy this rather than spend 20 more dollars for the X version. Ryzen 5 1600 to a Ryzen 5 1600, still same cores and threads but nearly a huge spike in peformance due to the zen 3 architecture.
Cons: I dont see very much cons other than lower clock speeds than the 5600X, but the difference isnt that far from each other. And barely is noticeable.
Overall Review: If youve had an old processor for a while, and your waiting for that day, to finally get an affordable processor? Now is the time to start getting it.
Simple, thermals are nice!
Pros: This is a small pack of thermal paste, but if your simply just using it to put it on a cpu and cooler than its pretty much all you need. My cpu was able to run under 75 when gaming, I havent tested out rendering yet, so I will update this soon. Cpu: Ryzen 5 5600 (Stock Cooler in use)
Cons: Dont screw it too tight or you might have to deal with a stuck cap.
Overall Review: Overall a pretty good product, and works very good with thermals, I wonder how this would work for an AIO cooler?
