    Installed the Ryzen 7 2700x into a previous generation ASUS CROSSHAIR VI HERO. While previous reviews and tech sites report that RYZEN 7 2000 series CPU's might not post on X370. I can say that the board I received did have 2000 series CPU ready on the front of the box. The initial bios was dated Version 3502 2018/01/30. The only release note was "Update to AGESA 1000a for new upcoming processors". I can say that the system is ridiculous paired with 2 x 8GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 (needs to be set to 3200 in the BIOS), Samsung 970 EVO 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD, and XFX RX580 Black Edition OC+ 8GB GPU. UserBenchmark listed it at 82 (Aircraft Carrier) for Gaming, 135 (UFO) for Desktop, and 130 (UFO) for Workstation. Boot time is sub 5 seconds to Windows 10 1803 desktop. Absolutely recommend these parts together. All were purchased from Best Buy with Price Match guarantee from online stores. Saved me over $200 and I got to speak with actual people face to face during the process. You can't get that by shopping online.

    BEST Value for money and performance

    Compared to intel, this CPU is a beast. I got this during black friday for much cheaper price and it seems to run better and faster than my i7 8700k when running multimedia programs and gaming. This chip does run a bit hotter than the i7 but nothing to complaint about if you have an AIO. Overall super happy and will never buy intel CPUs again because they're so expensive for the performance compared to AMD. Now that AMD is getting more skin into the game and boosting their CPU qualities, I'm sticking with team red. As for the GPUs...well thats slightly different story. Overall this CPU is HIGHLY recommended over the intel CPUs. I built my own rig and used a Asus Hero 7 crosshair motherboard with artic silver 5 paste and with my NZXT cam software I can monitor the CPU and it runs well. I did overclock the CPU and it runs great like that too. HAPPY CUSTOMER from best buy and best buy gave me a discount on top of the sale too. Was about to get this from amazon, but best buy had the best deal and customer service.

    I’ve been using AMD products since the early 1990’s and this is the BEST CPU yet! It is really fast and I have not had any issues with overheating. I’m using the built-in 360 Liquid Cooling System that came in the DEEPCOOL GENOME ROG Certified Edition ATX Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case. I’m running Battlefield 1 and Star Control Origins in awesome 4k with plenty of power to spare. By the way, Best Buy priced matched the CPU!!!! Just for reference, the following are the components of my gaming computer: - AMD - 2700X Octa-Core 3.7 - ASUS ROG Strix X470-F Gaming AMD Motherboard - PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX Vega 56 DirectX 12 AXRX VEGA 56 8GBHBM2-2D2HD/OC - G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18D-16GTZRX

    I wanted to have a fast computer since I edit photos and videos, and videos take a lot of space and time. This processor is reliable, fast and looks great. It came with easy to understand instructions and it was easy to install. I’ve had it for a couple of months and it still works great and since I got a case with a window, you can see it and it looks cool. RGB LED illuminates most of the case and it cashes your eye every time. With 8 cores, 16 processing threads and 20 MB Cache , that is all I need to make everything fast.

    Got this Processor on black Friday, Shipping was 2 days behind but that's cause black Friday. Processor Runs around 33c at idle, 49c while using Microsoft edge, surfing, and watching videos, 65c while gaming. I played the Anthem Closed Alpha back in December 2018 all setting on ultra, temp got up to 69c with Wraith cooler only no case fans, and GC Extreme thermal paste. The Wraith cooler is very good for a stock cooler considering this processor runs hot anyway, with a Noctua and case fans you can get 8c cooler temps. am using 650 power supply, ASRock Fatal1ty x470 motherboard , 32 gig ram, GTX 750Ti Video Card, and Corsair Carbide Series Case. Money well spent, Best Buy did not disappoint.

    I chose the Ryzen 7 2700x when planning my first computer build - I never built a computer before and was excited about doing it, and this processor has lived up to all of my expectations and I couldn't be happier with it. My PC is incredibly fast, since I paired this processor with 32GB of G.Skill FlareX RAM on the Asus CH7WIFI motherboard. The stock cooler (fan) is awesome. I'm not into looks and RBG, but it really looks good and it does a great job of cooling, not only for running at 3.7 GHz out of the box but I've overclocked to 4.0 GHz and its running really well with the stock fan. I really enjoyed my first build, and I'm loving AMD, Ryzen, and Asus.

    This chip is absolutely amazing. I bought a GTX 1080TI last year, and my I5 4690k chip was bottlenecking my PC. I was looking at the I9 9900K for a while, but I just couldn't justify the price tag. This came on sale for $280 and I couldn't pass it up. This thing boosted my benchmarks by about triple of where I was at. It runs cool, I have no issues whatsoever and I am extremely satisfied with this purchase! The main reason I upgraded is because I have a 32" 1440P 144hz monitor and I wanted to push my games to achieve these hard to reach numbers. I am right there now with my games on max settings (Call of Duty BLOPS 4, Rainbow Six Siege, Overwatch so far). Game Changer!

    The best-valued CPU currently

    I have tried this CPU under numerous occasions for differing purposes ranging from gaming, 3d modeling, image rendering, simulation executing, and general multitasking; for the money, I have never felt like a CPU could deliver so much performance. Of course there are higher performance options like the 9th gen i7 or i9, but they come with a price that offsets their value as a result. It even comes with an RGB stock cooler and thermal solution, a much appreciated bonus to a premium yet lower priced CPU. I definitely recommend this processor to anyone looking to get into higher performance computing while not breaking their banks.

    wew lads, so I pretty much just game in ESO right now, which is a CPU eater at endgame, or in cities. my 2600x and 2060rtx were able to pull a steady 60+ fps in city with an oc at 4.1MHz Just picked up the 2700x, disabled 2 cores, and got it to OC to 4.3 MHz at 1.38v. I now average 90+ fps in cities, and solid 144+ when i'm exploring on my own, while streaming, listening to music, discord, etc. I would wait for new zen to come out before buying though, i'm just impulsive.

    This chip is a great performer and every bit as worthy of your consideration as it's intel counterpart, the i7 8700k. Even though the 8700k is slightly better performing at games, this chip crushes it at about every other task, while still being highly capable as a gaming chip. If you use a lot of software that has highly multi-threaded workloads or do a lot of multitasking, this is the chip you want. XFR2 and PB2 are regularly giving me single core boost clocks of 4.3 to 4.4 GHz and it will do 4.2 GHz on all cores all day while gaming.

    Moving to AMD now. Price is right and performance is great. Built my own PC so I researched the chips and made the switch. Cheaper than Intel with comparable performance. All you need is this for a high end gaming rig. Installing on the mobo (Asus Crosshair x470) was easy. I did not use the included fan, and instead went with a Corsair liquid cooler and that connected easy. If you need a new CPU, look closely at this one. Read the reviews from the PC gaming sites with the charts and comparisons. You'll likely go AMD.

    BEST PERFORMANCE PER VALUE

    I 150% do not regret getting this over Intel's Octa-Core i7 chip. I use this processor for my computer not for gaming but for digital renderings and CAD work. It performs effortlessly and digital models/renderings load so much faster than my previous Intel Xeon processor. Sometimes high price doesn't always mean matching performance. This CPU proves that that is the case. The cooler fan that it comes with is also pretty, not that I really care about the LEDs as this is for my workstation.

    AMD wins the price/performance crown again! I use this cpu in my PC that is both a gaming PC and a PLEX server. I can game and record 2 live TV shows off the antenna AND stream 2-3 different recorded shows at the same time. This CPU is amazing. Utilization will vary during gameplay of course, but I tested recording 2 live tv shows and streamed 6 pre-recorded shows at the same time and never went above 25% utilized. Great Performance!

    I’ve been looking for a new desktop soulution for a while, and ultimately decided on the Ryzen 7 2700x vs the i7-8700k. The Ryzen 7 has 2 additional cores (4 additional threads) over the 8700k making it a better option for heavy multitasking and running my home media server. The stock cooler it ships with is very nice as well. However to take full advantage of the 2700x a good liquid cooler will be in my near future.

    The first thing you'll get to appreciate upon opening the product is the aesthetically pleasing stock cpu cooler with rbg functionality. I upgraded from a 4th gen i7 so this was a huge upgrade as is but the 8 cores has offered much power and quality of life with my multi-tasking and audio rendering habits, as well as chugging out my games on extreme settings 1080p 144hz, leaving my 970 to be the apparent bottleneck.

    Build your own motherboard with this AMD Ryzen 7 processor. Its advanced Wraith Prism cooler lets it operate at lower noise volumes for quieter processing, and its clear fan helps keep components cool while providing better RGB light illumination for creating fun effects. This AMD Ryzen 7 processor has eight cores for completing multiple system-intensive tasks at once.

    Why buy Intel other than name?

    Honestly, AMD has made the reasons to buy intel very minimal. You get all of the performance in the place you need it for less dollars. And in some cases you get more performance than Intel. Single core applications are not quite as fast, but the gap is small enough now that there really is no benefit to Intel other than paying for a name.

    I purchased this along with an ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero, 16gb Anarchy 3200 MHz RAM, paired with my previous Samsung Evo 850 500gb and GTX 1080 FE. Nothing touches this processor, did some video editing and its over twice as fast as my old AMD FX 9590. Gaming is smooth and my processor is no longer the bottleneck. Best purchase this year.

    My expectations were high for this processor. I'm happy to say they were greatly exceeded! I'm able to not only run my games at maximum quality, but also stream at 1080p and 60fps all while running a FiveM Grand Theft Auto 5 Roleplay server. Even doing all of this simulatneously, it only uses about 35% of it's potential!

    When deciding on parts for my build I went with Ryzen because of my need for both productivity and gaming. I opted for this cpu because it seemed incredible for the price point. I have not been let down. Paired with a 2080 GPU my machine destroys projects and games and asks for seconds! Incredible cpu choice for any build still though!
