AMD 5600X Reviews
OK processor, as expected.
The processor works fine. The process of purchasing it without sales tax was problematic.
Great upgrade for price
Upgraded from a 3600x, with a 1080TI and 32 gig RAM. CS:GO went (low settings, 165hz) from 220FPS to 700FPS. I was not expecting that much gain per dollar. I changed my settings to mid-high and am running at 350FPS still. And my computer in general has been running more smoothly on Win 11. Before I was having input lag issues, which are completely gone now. This has been one of the best single purchase upgrades I have done in quite a while. I highly recommend for anyone trying to squeeze more performance out of a slightly dated machine.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
I ordered this to upgrade a computer I had built. Ordering was easy, Shipping was fast and the price was right. All reasons I will be buying from B&H again in the future.
Great performing CPU with a catch
This CPU is miles better than my 12400F, but it get super hot for the simplest tasks, therefore you need a good cooling solution.
Good middle ground for gaming
Good balance between power usage and performance for gaming, Does a great job for consuming just 70-80W maximum under intense load. Recent price drop brought it down to a reasonable bargain vs other options. Especially great upgrade if you have an older AM4 board and previous gen Ryzen CPU.
This processor is rly powerful and the shipping was really fast
And at a good price. Well done, B&H
A good bang for the buck. Received in good condition and very quickly.
