    from completed build My Gaming PC

    For most people, this CPU is absolutely pointless. Just spend a small amount extra and get a Ryzen 5 1400 instead. For me, it works. As someone who already owned a good liquid CPU cooler, an extremely good AM3 motherboard and a 1000W 80+ Platinum rated PSU, it was an easy job to overclock this to 4.62GHz and get slightly better performance out of it than a non-overclocked FX-8350. I wouldn't really recommend this CPU to anyone who isn't in an extremely similar situation as me though; you'd be much better suited with a Ryzen 5 1400.
