New 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU

Ryzen 5 CPU

The New AMD 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU LineupThe new AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs have arrived boasting higher performance gains over its predecessor lineup. With higher speeds, more memory and wider bandwidth the new Ryzen CPUs look to improve on and upgrade the way you relax, work and play. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor includes 6 CPU Cores with 12 threads and a base clock of 3.6GHz that can be boosted to 4.2GHz. The new CPU's are backwards compatible with older motherboards thanks to the same AM4 slot socket however with the newly released chipset of X570 motherboards you can maximize the power the Ryzen CPUs have to offer. Support for DDR4 Memory continues but with the new Ryzen CPUs comes the new PCIe 4.0 Version which has improved the speeds of which your PCIe components such as graphics cards and some storage solutions communicate with the motherboard. Blur the line between elite gaming performance and workstation-class content creation with the most advanced desktop processors in the world.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600, AM4, Zen 2, 6 Core, 12 Thread, 3.6GHz, 4.2GHz Turbo, 32MB L3, PCIe 4.0, 65W, CPU, +Wraith Stealth is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from March 2020 sample clocks to 4.35GHz stable with AIOC Massive upgrade from an A10 processor. Got a stable all core boost OC of 4.35GHz with an H100i cooler. Great performance in games, Lightroom and Photoshop. Don't use much else other than those things. I have a second one to put into an SFF system which I'll be testing with a Wraith Prism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great processor for gaming and streaming! This cpu is really great for gaming and streaming I managed to overclock to 4.35ghz and is really a great cpu for the price and performance
Date published: 2020-08-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic all around CPU, Just be sure to get a better CPU Cooler! I've really got nothing bad to say about the CPU itself, for its price it performs very well in all applications and games. Just be sure to get an aftermarket CPU Cooler! The included "Wraith Stealth" cooler is a big downgrade from the previous cooler included with the Ryzen 5 1600. The default fan curve means the fan is constantly changing speed and this is of course distracting. Would recommend investing in a Noctua NH-U12S, or CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO, as a third party cooler if you value noise reduction and much better temperatures!
Date published: 2020-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good processor More than I need and I would have gotten a 3300x if it was available but this is a good chip and will mean I don’t have to upgrade as soon as if I had got the 3300.
Date published: 2020-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CPU, rubbish cooler I bought the 3600 to fit in my new MSI Tomahawk x570 motherboard. All went well but when I booted up I was alarmed at how poor the cooling was from the supplied wraith cooler. It was so bad and sounded so loud and whiney that I was afraid to do anything other than run low cpu intensive programs. Luckily I was able to order a Cooler Master 212 hyper BE from Scan for next day delivery which when fitted dropped the temps greatly with almost silent operation. Can't believe AMD supply such an abysmal cooler!
Date published: 2020-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended for gaming and light workloads! With six cores and six threads this is an excellent choice of CPU for every gamer, even those with an RTX 2080Ti. The vast majority of games do not benefit from more than 12 threads, so this is excellent at every quality level. The only complaint I have is that the included stock cooler is excessively loud, and may be insufficient for cooling for this with non-airflow-optimised (e.g. front mesh) cases. I strongly recommend getting at least a cheap air cooler for a much quieter and cooler experience!
Date published: 2020-07-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value CPU Went with this CPU for my first gaming PC. Heard a lot of good things about AMD CPUs for gaming and it just so happened the majority of the PC build videos I had watched on youtube were using the Ryzen 5 3600 as the best budget CPU! The stock cooler provides decent thermals and it looks good too which is a bonus. It's a solid CPU at an unbeatable price. (paired with an MSI B450M Mortar Max motherboard and an RTX 2060 - worked straight out the box).
Date published: 2020-07-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Unbeatable for the price, read a lot of reviews about how good it was, but experiencing it for myself has been great. Quality product, in my opinion the best valued CPU on sale at the moment.

Motherboard

Is this compatible with the b450 tomahawk max and will it need a bios update if so, can this cpu support that bios
Asked by: Ethan8273
I bought this cpu with the b450 Tomahawk Max, I didn't need a bios update, it just worked straight from the box. I recommend to install the latest chipset drivers though, it helps stablise the voltage and so on.

Are Scan able to flash b450 or x470 Mobos to support these chips?

Most older (non 570) boards will support the new ryzen chips, but will require bios updates to do this. Will Scan (on request) be able to perform these updates so that the buyers don't need to also purchase an additional Zen or Zen+ chip just to flash the bios? I'm aware some Mobos have the capability to update the bios via USB but this is usually just on expensive high end parts.
Asked by: Adamantois3000
Can't comment on Scan being able to Flash Bios for you but I did read that AMD can send you an older chip to run on your MB so that you can boot up and install the latest bios. Then just return the chip to them. Not sure if they still do it but it was an option. (obviously if you kept the chip they would charge you for it). Not sure if it helps either but I'm running the Ryzen 5 3600 on my MSI B450M Mortar Max board straight out the box, no bios update.
