    Good benchmarks and automatic overclocking works well. Included cpu cooler isn't too shabby, but can get a bit loud when gaming.

    I love this cpu, great price, good speeds and the temps really don't fluctuate too high during load, which is nice. The stock cooler looks good, i didnt use it though, so cant comment on that.

    This CPU is awesome paired with the rtx2060. one thing though is if your wanting nice cool temps you better go ahead and get a nice aio or tower cooler

    from completed build Value build, no flashy, no rgb.

    In terms of value I only considered the ryzen 5 2600 and 2600x. I finally decided for the last one because it has better performance out of the box and a better stock cooler.

    Boosts up to around 4.15Ghz using the stock cooler and Arctic Silver 5 paste and more than enough for any application for mainstream users. Although fiddly I was able to change the orientation of the shroud - but this should be an option for users. Good to see AMD back in the game - Well recommended as an option if you don't want to tweak or overclock.

    Very good value for performance. Would definitely go AMD again for my future build.

    from completed build Project: Aurora Alchemy

    Great CPU for the price point. With stable overclock to 4.1Ghz, Runs cool under high load with AIO, and the default cooler is surprisingly effective. Keeps up with 4k gaming without breaking a sweat (or temp spike)

    So far so good. Runs like a champ.

    Really waited a long time to buy a CPU/Mobo. They were the last parts to buy, but the 2600x is really the best balance between value and performance for me. I bought it to futureproof a bit, even though I know that's a little bit of a fool's errand.
