Very Good CPU

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.

Fantastic performance

Pairs really well with a 2070 super. Runs any game I throw at it without an issue. And the integrated cooler is quite good to the point that you will probably not need to get an aftermarket one

10/10 CPU

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

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...view more

absolutely excellent

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.

CPU is fine, cooler inadequate

The CPU does what it says on the box. Cooler isn't quite up to the task: once the CPU starts working, core temps go up to north of 80C (non-overclocked) and even when lightly loaded the cooler is constantly spinning up and down to keep the CPU below 60C.

Seriously consider a better cooler unless neither noise nor stable temp are a concern.

Good, runs warm.

Great CPU, my first AMD for many years.

Steath cooler is not adequate to run it at stock though, was getting peak temps into the mid to high 90's.

Easy enough to undervolt and get those temps down to the low 70's. I've been running this for 6 months, have not had any other issues.

Mate, it's a banger

There isn't much I can say that hasn't been said.
Epic value for money - great performance for the price.
It's a beast.

Just what my PC needed

AC Valhalla was a glitchy mess till I installed this with an AS rock 540 Thunder. Now it's buttery goodness. Though Cyberpunk 2077 is still a glitchy mess, but it looks and runs mint.

Easy choice

This is the sweet spot, easy install, thermal paste pre applied to the stock cooler which is good enough imo until you look at OC.

Powerful mid-range CPU

Used the product for a few weeks. The Stock Cooler make a whirring sound, however, the machine is quick and i dont hear the fan too much to be distracted.
