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.

Crushes a 7700k multi, near in single
By Scott Evers
Getting 3x the fps over my old 8350 FX for a fraction of the 7700k cost.

you can get a much better CPU with more cores
By S. Ross Allen
I've recently upgraded from an i5 7600, and I have to say I've very impressed with this CPU. I've been able to get a stable overclock to 4.0 with no issues using an AIO. On top of that, I don't experience any stuttering or frame rate loss from streaming or recording, something that make games unplayable on my i5. Playing rocket league or any FPS while streaming on my i5 made the game unplayable, to the point where I didn't even want to run shadowplay due to the frame rate loss.
TBH, I don't see any reason to buy an i5, when for the same price, you can get a much better CPU with more cores, which improves productivity.
