"probably one of the best low end of the high end (if that makes sense) cpus for gaming"
 Emanuele L. ~ 22-01-20
"Hey, I don't know how good this is. It works in my computer, and it definitely goes faster than my old i5 2600k, so I guess it's good? Probably?"
 Simon V. ~ 16-01-20
"For the price, the Ryzen 5 3600's value is hard to beat. I upgraded from a i7 4790 and am very happy with it."

Very Good CPU

25 July 2019
Good Price, Good Quality, Good Temperatures.
There is nothing to complain about.
3rd Gen Ryzen with superb power.
If you are trying to decide between this and the 3600X. The X is not worth the extra price.

10/10 CPU

30 September 2019
Great performance, outperforms the i5 9600k unless the latter is overclocked very high. Very fast multi-core speeds for editing photos. Gaming it pushes through anything I shove at it without breaking a sweat. Even if i'm pushing games at 100+ fps, i've never seen the overall CPU usage rise above 50-60% in games, my GTX 1660ti (a great 1080p card) is the bottleneck for this thing. Highly recommend to everyone building a gaming rig/editing rig

Absolutely wonderful

22 September 2019
Upgraded from the AMD Fx 6300 black edition, and wow - this thing effectively upped the performance by 3 - 4x to say the least. Put it this way, it took more than 2 hours just to do a full hard drive scan with the 6300. With the Ryzen 5 3600, I did it in 26 minutes. Everything is smooth, no hiccups and easy to install. CPU is unlocked from the get go but my mobo's (Gigabyte B450 Gaming X) EasyTune software doesn't recognize it as a overclock-able CPU, hence it's necessary to overclock from BIOS only or a software better than EasyTune.

CPU's temps are manageable, the wraith cooler is good. My only gripe is that it has a audible "whine" and...

absolutely excellent

8 August 2019
paired this with a Asrock Phantom4 X570, runs fantastic, Ryzen master had peak speed over 4.2ghz so very happy, coupled with a 5700xt all from PB Tech i have a beast system.
cons had trouble initially as i used an old version of windows and kept getting a BSOD clock_watchdog_timeout. used microsofts upgrade tool to setup a USB with the latest version of windows, wiped my hdd and started again, absolutely no problems since.

Awesome CPU

Upgraded from an overclocked i5-3570K which I kept maxing out at 100% usage, This CPU easily handles everything I throw at it.
