Couldn't be happier

Pros: Decent price, more than powerful enough to meet my needs

Cons: Nadda

Other Thoughts: My cheap motherboard crapped out on me exactly one year and one month after building my Plex Server so the big decision for me was to either replace the mobo using the same CPU and RAM or to upgrade to a higher end unit. I had been wanting to try out the Ryzen (which came out shortly after I built my first computer) so decided to take the plunge.

I ran into some minor compatibility issues with the motherboard and this CPU, but eventually got a different motherboard and it has been working just great.

I'm now in the process of upgrading to yet another mobo (and case) that will allow me to connect more HDD.

I use this primarily as a Plex Media Server with Ubuntu as my OS and am constantly running out of storage space. Most of my videos are converted so that I don't need to transcode on the fly (it's more of a space issue than it is a benchmark issue) but can easily run four or five videos at the same time. If I am using Handbrake to convert a lot of videos, then I will transfer some of the raw files over to this CPU to do the grunt work as it seems to convert to MP4 quicker than my video editing computer does (Intel i5).

Because I don't use it for anything more than a Plex Server it has a low end graphics card in it.

Awesome Lil Guy

Pros: -Works well
-I messed up installing it at first (I thought) so I had to redo it, apply new thermal paste, etc, but it handled it like a champ
-Great for starter systems, works hard, can handle the more advanced pieces I have

Cons: -The thermal paste is hard to see and it's not easy to get it out of box without touching it, be careful!

You've gotta love this little workhorse!

Pros: Amazing price, great over-clocker, fast and capable, stable, same socket as the more powerful Ryzen chips, with 3.7GHz overclock it seems to be faster at most tasks than my FX-8350 at stock clock, and uses like 2/3rds the electrons.

Cons: Quad-core with no hyperthreading (or whatever AMD calls it) which may hinder it in content creation situations

Other Thoughts: I bought this chip to pair with my MSI M7 ACK motherboard. The intent was to run this chip for a year or so and then pick up a Ryzen 7 chip, but after using the chip for a while I have no reason to even trade it out for a Ryzen 5! After reading a bit about its overclock potential I overclocked it to 3.7 GHz on the stock voltage, cooled with an EVO 212, and it's extremely snappy and fully stable. I use my computer for MS Office applications, web surfing, some video editing in Adobe Premier, and a bit of gaming (X-Com, X-Com2, Mutant Year Zero...I like strategy games). Paired with my GTX 1070 FTW graphics card I can play any of these games on max settings without a problem and video rendering is plenty quick enough for me as a non-professional. If the release of AMD's next socket drops prices on AM4 chips I'll probably consider finally getting that Ryzen 7 for the sake of future-proofing, but this little powerhouse does all I need and more! Well done AMD...slow-clap.
