The one we were waiting for.
By Amanda Smith
Paired it with an ASUS Prime X370-Pro.
This thing is silky smooth. Breathtaking upgrade from my second gen i5. Mild overclocking so far with stock cooler.
I'm a little bummed the stock Wraith Spire did not have RGB lighting like the r7 1700 does. But it cools just as efficiently.
Also used Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200 ram. I've got it running stable at 2966. Haven't been able to post it past that. Still nice overclock over the stock 2133, and a huge increase over the ddr3 1600 ram I came from.
I considered the 1600x but it wasn't available with prime at launch and I would have had to invest in an aftermarket cpu cooler. I reinvested that into a sweet ssd upgrade.
I have been able to achieve a stable overclock of 3.9 ghz with the stock cooler using the Ryzen Master software. Much easier to use than the bios settings.
Running multiple programs has never been smoother.

A great and cheap 6 core workstation CPU
By MING HONG PI
Great CPU for price, overall a joy to have, price to performance ratio was worth it. My current build features
-This CPU and this stock cooler (which works great by the way)
-A RX 480 8gb (you should opt for the newer 580 now though)
-16 gb ddr4 RAM at 3000Mhtz (there is a slight hassle with achieving higher speeds however)
-MSI PC mate B350 motherboard
-600W EVGA 80+ brronze certified PSU
-2tb SSHD seagate Firecuda
-NZXT s340 mid tower
This setup works great for me and I hope to keep it around for years to come!

Video editing+Gaming MONSTER
This processor is the greatest thing ever. Unless you are a full time content creator, this processor is perfect for video editing and gaming. I paired this with a GTX 1060 3gb and get upwards of 170 frames on overwatch and dota 2 without overclocking! Editing is also super fast and smooth. 100% the best price to performance processor on the market. You will not regret buying this!
