Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful Better than my i5 for gaming, much better. Thank you scan for the support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well done AMD! After years in the wilderness AMD can at last compete with Intel in the cpu market. This processor works very well in video encoding which I bought it for. This first generation Ryzen, whilst not quite as good as Intel is considerable cheaper! I also prefer the AM4 sockets to the Intel as they are more robust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing 6 core 12 threads and now for less than £200? Not to mention the performance, this cpu is a beast and worth the investment, it'll be the brain power for your gaming or work station for years to come. I was an Intel guy until ryzen came out and I'm happy I made the switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly fast!!! Fast out of the box and some overclocking headroom (more than you get with Intel non-x chips). - More cores than I know what to do with. Seriously, anyone have any ideas for how to use all these? lol - I was building a machine for OCing anyway so I didn't need a stock cooler and am rolling with the Cryorig H5 Ultimate - Tons of cache space. Often overlooked but will come in handy in niche workloads

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMD stole me from an Intel purchase So to give some context to the title, I nearly went with a I7-7700k earlier in the year, but then AMD launched Ryzen and like most I glared optimistically from across the room as I was on a FX-8350, which for multi-task and photo-editing performed well, however became a bottleneck for gaming. So I waited for the Ryzen bug fixes which came and after a few months from launch I finally built a new computer and chucked one of these in there. Its been a couple months and it has not let me down yet with temperatures (on liquid) staying low, and for photo-editing, graphic design and gaming, this CPU just hasn't cared and powers through just about anything I throw at it. So I would say worth every penny I spent and I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great multi-threading cpu Great cpu, I think the best of all Ryzen series if you don't need 8 cores. People say get a non X 1600 and overclock it but I think this cpus are binned; most non x 1600 stop at 3.8 or 3.9Ghz; this one does 4.1Ghz easily with 1.39v. With better cooling 4.2Ghz for everyday use is possible. Overall great product if it wasn't for the ram problems that this platform has, still after 4 months since release. If you can put up with ramdon black screens go for it, Ryzen is for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1600x What can I say this is the sweet spot CPU from Amd if you don't need a cooler. It will overclockers as long as you get the right memory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went back to and I was intel for 5 years now I was a big fan of the second generation i7s so I build my gaming beast at the time with a 2700k clock at 4.5 I got lucky to get it soo high and runing cool but after seeing zen I know it was time to upgrade so happy I did has soon has I update bios and clock my ram to 3200 started this monster up it was instant love runs good stays cool clock it to 4.1 stable I love it such power and speed for this price.
