Great chip.

Strengths of the product

Runs 4.25 ghz out of the box, HW monitor reports it hitting 4.8ghz on all 6 every once and a while. I do have a 120mm water AIO though.

Weaknesses of the product

Only that it is not an 8 core haha.

Additional Comments

Was contemplating the 2700x or 2600x for a while. Ended up getting the 2600x, runs great for games. Paired with FlareX cl14 3200 ram and a x470 ROG strix gaming-F. Runs everything smooth that I have played. I am getting better FPS then most benchmarks I see on games I play. And saved myself 160$ by not getting the 2700x.

Good gaming value

Strengths of the product

Nice and fast, cool temperatures. Pretty much 4.1 GHz+ on all cores when gaming even with multiple MMO clients loaded at once.

Weaknesses of the product

The CPU does fluctuate temperatures even when idle at the desktop, probably due to the Precision Boost 2 self overclocking features. This isn't an issue processor wise, but does cause the fan speeds to fluctuate, so is a bit noticeable especially on a normally quiet system when at the desktop.

Additional Comments

I went from an FX-8350 and M5A99X Pro AM3+ motherboard to this Ryzen 5 2600X and Gigabyte Aorus AM4 X470 Ultra Gaming motherboard, and it is night and day. This is much faster, more stable, uses less power, and runs quieter and way cooler temperatures than my old processor even using the stock fan.

Update: Great temps while gaming - Better than expected

Strengths of the product

UPDATE: Chip runs cooler now than before - Remounted the Wraith Spire Cooler with Arctic Silver thermal paste and temps are holding around 65C while playing PUBG and Total War Warhammer! Chip speed boosts between 4050 MHz and 4100 MHz the whole time you play. I expect 4.2GHz with the Corsair H100i V2.

Sorry I did not know how to add this to my original review.

Strengths of the product

Right out of the box 12% - 15% faster than my 1600X Immediately worked with my DDR4 3200 Corsair LPX memory Stock cooler Wraith Spire holds 75C when gaming while chip is always over 4GHz with no overclocking! Average clock while playing PUBG is 4050 with stock cooler. Quiet cooler. Will install my H100i V2 cooler soon. Expecting 4.1 boost on CPU clock without overclocking. Faster in games than my old i5 7600K

Weaknesses of the product

Single core speed could be a tick better but not a deal breaker for this price.

Additional Comments

Watch out Intel they are right on top of you.
