I replaced a slower Ryzen 5 3600 CPU with this one which significantly boosted all my benchmarks and improved photo editing tools performance. Superb shipping speed and quality of packaging which is why I chose B&H over Amazon at the same price.

A real screamer.

This chip is a race car. It idles hot. Not for penny pinchers. But if you have a game that's CPU blocked, this is your ticket to decent frame rates.

Solid processor

Swapped it right in for my 4 year old 2700x. Had to update the BIOS for my x470 but worked right out of the box, and cinebench scores are consistent with what this processor should get! Nice, easy, inexpensive upgrade for older Ryzen machines.

Much similar to the i5-12400, good performance, but it gets really hot and needs good cooling.

Great deal

Great product that is cheap and powerful for gaming and medium production work. Fast shipping as always. Temps are good for stock cooler if your not going to overclock.
