AMD Ryzen™ 5 1600, S AM4, Six Core, 12 Thread, 3.2GHz, 3.6GHz Turbo, 16MB Cache, 65W, CPU, Retail,+ Wraith Spire Cooler is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and fast CPU Good and fast CPU. Comes with heatsink and fan. Cheaper processing power comparing to Intel CPUs. Online in one of my mining rigs. Doing up to 435 H/s in CryptoNight (XMR).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More temperamental then my old Haswell Intel processor, but it is value for money I've had a few issues with my new build randomly cutting out when running this at it's advertised 3.6Ghz boost speed with a Be Quiet Air Cooler. Mounting after market air coolers is also a nightmare. My Be Quiet one attaches with a clip rather then screws. This is very difficult and frustrating to fit (a shame since the stock cooler has 4 screws to fit it). Despite the above it performs very well and gets good scores on Passmark. If your running at the boost speed an All-in-one water cooler might be a good choice. I've not tested with the stock one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance, Great Value Highly recomend this CPU especially when paired with a B350 or X370 motherbaord as these chips overclock to 3.9/4GHZ easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ryzen 5 Moving from a 6 core phenom which is higher ghz so haven’t really noticed much change as yet. I haven’t used it for anything intensive yet so will need to see if it makes a difference. Overall I’m not sure it was worth upgrading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs great Had no problems with this prodct at all and used it for an upgrade for my PC that was bottlenecking my video card with my old cpu. Fast delivery and on the date specified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Fault It The cooler comes already with thermal paste on it so no need to buy your own, fits easily to the board but recommended using a full size screwdriver and not a smaller one. Processor clips easily into place on the board and performs brilliantly
Date published: 2017-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price to performance on the market I bought this for lessthan £160 on SCAN. At that price, it's simply the best value non-budget CPU on the market. As not only do you get 6-cores/12-threads, you also get a cooler in the box, saving you another £25. Believe me when I say you WILL NOT notice the tiny performance deficit of Ryzen compared to Intel's latest generation of CPUs (which are far more expensive, including more expensive motherboards). This is all just a marketing trick from Intel, where they are trying to convince PC users that 6% IPC makes a difference in day-to-day use. It is utterly unnoticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best and the cheapest if you overclocking When I was looking at the ryzen buying between ryzen 5 and 7 I deside that the 7 was over kill and the price put me off so deaided to go with ryzen 5 and as there all the same chip but for amd have already overclocked them but for the 1600 which you can do your self I deside to do it my self but you need to get a good mother board so I bought the new release asus B350 TUF and unlike most people that only get 3.7ghz this new motherboard allowed my chip to overclock to 4.1ghz that better than any ryzen 5 chip and running at stock cooler..... So I've saved £150 and have one of the fastest chips out there

Questions & Answers


Asked by: oldrookie
The cooler I received simply had a cable for the fan, no extra cable for ring LEDs (which don't look to be present on the Wraith Spire cooler I received with this), and nothing lights up when in use.

Thermal paste required?

Do the cpu+cooler already come attached to each other? Is extra thermal paste required/recommended with this, especially for overclocking?
Asked by: Brasscastle
CPU and cooler come separate, but in the same box. Thermal paste is already applied to the bottom of the cooler. Once you remove the cooler from the box, don't put it anywhere but on top of the CPU! In terms of extra paste required for overclocking, can't say, but under general use the cooler keeps the CPU plenty cool enough with the supplied paste.
