AMD Ryzen™ 3 3100, AM4, Zen 2, 4 Core, 8 Thread, 3.6GHz Base, 3.9GHz Turbo, 18MB Cache, PCIe 4.0, 65W, CPU is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent value cpu this little cpu is a value beast, the price to performance of the 3100 is excellent for its price tag, 4 cores 8 threads and a decent boost speed for under £100 all at 65w tdp, and it overclocks like a champ, easily hitting over 4ghz and sometimes 4.4, 4.5 ghz that puts it up against cpus twice its price point, amd got it spot on with the 3100 and the 3300x its no longer a budget gaming cpu its now just great value gaming, i would say if your not comfortable overclocking spare the extra £20 for the 3300x there is a decent performance increase but if your just looking for a cheap cpu for gaming this is the one to get in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VR READY And minor frame drops on Star Citizen I had been looking into upgrading my ages old i5 3550 and was recommended this by Scan. Despite having no clue how to build a Pc, I managed in the end! For the low price point this CPU offers me very high fedility. Combining this with a mid-high end card you will get very good performance. 4.5/5

Questions & Answers

Thermal paste

Does this include thermal paste?
Asked by: Anonymous
it does come with a cooler with thermal paste preinstalled, although if you plan on overclocking or running this cpu in a tight airflow cose i would consider an aftermarket cooler as the stock one isnt the best.
