Great CPU and great price 1/24/2020 12:59:45 PM

Pros: Very powerful for the price

Cons: None

Overall Review: This CPU is working great. When running all games paired with my RX590 that's overclocked; this CPU only runs at %20-%30 of its usage. You could run a pretty powerful graphics card before you're bottlenecked

Works Great 1/23/2020 12:08:02 PM

Pros: It’s unlocked, you can over clock up to a stable 4.1 ghz with the stock cooler the temps are around 50-60c. With a liquid aio you get a stable 4.2 30c @idle

Cons: Really nothing, it’s fast good for 1080p gaming, good work work loads.

Overall Review: It’s a good chip you can overclock it stays cool with stock cooler fast for games, fast for CAD, fast for general workloads. I highly recommend for budget games looking to play 1080p games anywhere from 60-240hzs depending on you GPU. I have a EVGA 1650 gets 144hz on fortnite at medium to low settings, I would love an upgrade(if your a company looking for a good review please send me a GPU that is better then a 1650), it’s over all performance and usability is amazing. Thank you AMD!

Overall Review: I haven’t built a machine for 20+ years. This processor is way faster than the unit at work. So far so good.

First AMD build 1/21/2020 8:58:42 AM

Pros: Price was incredible. Couldn't resist doing an AMD build at that price. Included Stealth cooler looks and works great.

Cons: No integrated graphics. But i knew this from my research.

Overall Review: So much bang for your buck. Just remember if your thinking about this chip it doesn't have integrated graphics. I have always done intel builds and never fully appreciated the integrated graphics until doing this build. I had issues which ended up being ram issues ( 32g ). Would have been nice eliminating the possibility of it being a GPU issue.

A happy AMD Guy 1/17/2020 2:41:50 AM

Pros: * Number 2 instead of 1
* Increased in frequency and boost
* X end of number version
* Didn't need new motherboard

Cons: * Not much different speed (expected)

Overall Review: I do have the Amd 1600 (3200 MHz), and upgraded to a 2600x (3600 MHz), to help stabilize my system from bottleneck. I do not overclock at all, but having the X for the overclock boost helps to stabilize the system with GPU, and Ram. I haven't noticed speed (was expected), but removing the bottle neck shows improvement. AMD will always be my brand, because they think of the product, customer, price.

Love it! 1/15/2020 7:17:42 PM

Overall Review: So far, I'm loving this processor! I upgraded from a FX8350, and while the old FX could hold its own is some cases, the Ryzen 2600x is a huge improvement. Noticeable difference in games, productivity, and even in file explorer. Cinebench scores improved by 112% going from the 8350 to the 2600x. Great cpu, at a great price.
