great upgrade from first gen Ryzen

Strengths of the product

I'm running an X370 motherboard, and with a recent BIOS upgrade, the board (Gigabyte K7) took the new chip with no problems. I'm running a Corsair H110i cooler system, and sustained stress-tests on the chip have maxed out around 68.5 Celsius. The single thread performance gain over my first gen Ryzen is objectively noticeable; my CPU-Z benchmarks are showing almost 50% gains. More importantly, desktop workloads in many programs, such as Photoshop and Lightroom, are tangibly faster.

Weaknesses of the product

Additional Comments

This is the first time in years that I've put a new chip into my computer and actually "felt" the difference (I think the last time I was this excited was when I got my 2600k). Version 2 of the AMD Ryzen Master is also a lot of fun to use, although I agree with a lot of blogs that AMD has already optimized the chip and there isn't a whole lot else to do. Overall, I'm really happy with the performance and price, and its an added bonus that a MB upgrade wasn't needed. I am really, really happy with this upgrade.

Almost Perfect

Cooling

Additional Comments

CPU definitely does not operate at advertised 65W TDP and included cooler is not nearly enough. At only 20% load CPU was hitting 80C+ and max fan speeds. Get a water cooler or a Noctua for Ryzen 7 or 9. This model operates closer to the 105W TDP of the 3800x and higher so good cooling is a must. Otherwise, great product! Just sad I can't use the RGB
