To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I decided to buy the 5 3600x instead of the 5 3600 because it came with a better cooler so I am going to review the cpu and cooler as a package as AMD clearly marketed them. While I have no trouble recommended the cpu the cooler is beyond crap. It sounds like a bag of cats hung over a fire and no matter how I played round with fan speeds etc it got little better. Changed the stock thermal paste out for much better and more expensive paste and this made so little difference it is not worth going into. Stuck on an after market cooler and all solved. The 5 3600x is a waste of money without an after market cooler which makes the X letter rather expensive. Stick to the 5 3600 and use the money saved for a good cooler. First time in 15 years I am truly annoyed in AMD for what is clearly a cash grab.
unfortunately the ryzen 3600x was dead, couldnt get any life out of the chip. was returned over a month and two emails asking how the testing went i got no reply. in the end had to call amazon in who gave me a full refund. thanks amazon, no thanks cpu world
Google Ryzen 5 3600x (or any Ryzen 5/7) crashes. You'll find a plethora of Reddit and Tom's hardware posts with black screen crash/reboot issues. No overclocking, brand new system from top to bottom. When removing found one of the pins was slightly black/burnt. Got a new MOBO and Intel CPU. Never buying a 3rd gen Ryzen again. On a positive note stays cool below 40c with an aftermarket cooler and was quiter than the i5 system.
I have emailed them as my CPU is faulty. Either they can refund me or send another one out. I NEED THIS PC and it isnt working DO NOT ORDER OFF OF THEM! I am okay to edit my review if they act upon this
