    After years of second rate offerings, I am so happy that amd has come out with a set of gamechanging processors. So far this processor blows away anything else I have and I am happy with it, it just took some doing to get the cpu/mobo/ram combo to all agree with each other. Also I have noticed that the processor gets a little glitchy gaming when the auto overdrive feature is turned on in ram. I can not yet comment on how it performs with manual overclocking as I haven't had the time to get into it. Fortunately I haven't actually felt like I have needed to make time just yet. with ddr4 3000 and an x370 mobo windows 10 boots off a sata ssd in about 12 seconds.

    I'll sum it up as fast as I can. Easily overclocked to 4.9 ghz with a self contained watercooler from thermaltake. 6 cores 12 threads cant go wrong with a CPU with 12 cores running at 4.9 ghz . Very fast got it for gaming and YouTube videos and when compiling videos way faster not by seconds I mean like I cut 30-45 min off of a 3 hour process so loving that.

    I was upgrading my current cpu (ryzen 1400) to this ryzen 5 1600. My ryzen 1400 had performance issues and constant crashes ever since I've had it. This Ryzen 1600 made all that frustration go away. All I have to say is Wow. My old cpu was definitely bad in some way. My Ryzen 1600 has brought new life to my rather new pc. Recommended buy. Two thumbs up here

    On my pre-built Tower I had a ryzen 1400... It was okay but wasn't getting the job done. The ryzen 1600 went above and beyond my expectations. With six cores and 12 threads, it has plenty of power. The heatsink that comes with this product definitely gets the job done too. It can also withstand overclocking to a certain extent. Two thumbs up

    Getting six core twelve thread CPU for this price is truly mind blowing, especially because its performs just as good as it looks on paper. I got a stable 3.8 GHz OC on the stock included cooler and couldn't be happier for the price to performance of this chip.

    Solid Gaming CPU for the Money

    All Ryzen chips come unlocked out of the box for overclocking, no need to buy a specific chip just to overclock. Solid gaming performance vs a comparable Intel chip for much lower price, 6 core and 12 threads of awesomeness.

    The AMD Ryzen series are great performers. This model, the 1600X, is a 6-core, 12-thread beast. Paired with the AMD GPU I purchased at the same time, this plays all of my games flawlessly.

    I was able to overclock mine to a stable 4.00 GHZ at 1.35V with max temps of 45-50c while gaming. For the price intel just can't keep up in the budget market. AMD is back in full force at a good price.

    Why pay almost double for an Intel processor that is marginal faster than its equivalent AMD. This processor is very fast and keep cool.

    I needed upgrade from an FX6300. This added at least 30fps to all my games. The fan is super quiet as well.
