AMD 3600X Reviews
Upgraded from a 4790k to this and must say the difference is noticeable. My computer never hangs too much anymore or gets stuck loading apps on startup. I threw on a hyper 212 and overclocked it to 4.3 ghz just for fun and it still maintains decent temps under load. This is a great CPU if you're looking to upgrade and don't need anything too muscular or expensive to get the job the done!
Fast CPU; terrible fan
The chip is powerful; however, the accompanied Wraith Spire cooler is pretty noisy with any load. The annoying fan would whir up and down with any kind of action, like opening a browser or launching a program. Will need to replace it, adding to the final cost.
WORKS AS EXPECTED

Perfect for a mid-grade build
Perfect for a mid-grade build that has room to upgrade once the newer chips are readily available again.
Great Product For A Great price
Very good CPU for a very good price. Fast shipping! B&H has always been a very good company to work with!
I'm happy with it
Does what it says on the package. Included cooling fan is fairly quiet. The package was damaged on arrival. My other computer parts arrived late, so I wasn't able to try it immediately, so I would be unable to test it in the allowed time window. I alerted their customer service to the damage, but it ended up working fine.
Works great on X570 motherboard
Dropped right in to my AM4 motherboard works great on X570 .
So far this product is excellent and was very fast shipping
