Affordable Ryzen Quad-core, easily overclocked to 3.9 Ghz on stock cooler. (Waiting for the AM4 bracket to arrive for my other cooler)
Very fast in Windows 10 and gaming. Best price/preformance rating. The stock cooler was faulty, it keep runs @ 1500rpm regardless Bios PWM settings. So i've bought a new Noctua. With boost and XFR it runs @ 3,9Ghz (the XFR in 1300X raise +200Mhz). Temps never pass 60° C. I also love the AM4 socket installation, very easy.
Processor works great, it's affordable for it's price. 3.5 GHz is more than enough for entry-level gaming. This was probably the best budget processor i could find. Works well, never really had any problems installing it, the biggest problem was the CPU Cooler which needs to be screwed in little by little on every side in an X shape. Keep a firm hand over the CPU Cooler while you screw it in, pushing it on all sides as for none of the screws to come out.
Just go for the 1300X. I get it, you can OC the 1200 no problem to match the base clock of the 1300. but why? with an extra few bucks you can run the 1300 with a high base clock and boost clock with less stress.
Could have gone with the 1200 instead to save a few bucks but wasn't sure if I wanted to overclock until I learned how easy Ryzen is on overclocking. Great performing CPU. Just what I needed for my build.
Fantastic Little CPU, would definitely recommend it
Fast for everday use, good for the light games I've tested, and reasonably fast for compiling code under Linux (but if you're doing a lot of compiling, look at something with more threads).
Great quad core processor, no problems yet.
I got this for the same price as a Ryzen 3 1200 on Cyber Monday and I'm extremely happy with the results. Was able to overclock to 3.9 ghz with the included wraith cooler.
It performs very well for a 120$ processer, and has great multi-core performance. However, the stock cooler is very hard to install, but it isn't too loud, which is good.
