Great processor, lots of threads at a reasonable price!

I had been using an 8320E for a few years now. Huge noticeable difference with Ryzen 5 in video editing and streaming games.

Great value for money and does exactly what I expected.

so far so good. great price for the performance/core count. it was hard for me to line up the screws on the cooler, I smeared the thermal paste a bit.

Amazing CPU! Good for gaming and everything else :)

Absolutely great value! 6 cores with SMT for just over 220 € and the included Wraith Spire cooler is actually pretty decent (fairly quiet and keeps the CPU cool enough for my taste). I was considering buying an aftermarket cooler or even an all-in-one water cooler, but honestly I'm just fine with the stock one for now. Also I don't plan on overclocking as long as the CPU is good for 60 fps.

Works great, is amazing for multitasking and handles gaming amazingly. The stock cooler is nerve-racking to install for a first time builder, but no need to deduct a star for that.

The AMD Ryzen 1600 CPU that everyone says is the best bang for your buck for gaming. It comes with its own cooler that is solid (non-LED version). The cooler comes with a lot of thermal paste mounted on the heat sink. After mounting it to my CPU, I took a look and noticed that there was TIM oozing out of the sides... I'm a little worried about this and will be monitoring my temps in the near future. Worst case I'll be removing and reapplying the TIM and mounting the CPU back on, no biggie. UPDATE: The CPU temps are pretty solid, I'm getting about 32oC idle and never above 70oC at max loads running Prime95.
