Strengths:

Price / Performance. A fantastic CPU. Pare it up with the latest motherboard and you are ready for almost anything. And at this price you can then have a great upgrade path to a higher end new gen cpu. That is when those prices drop of course.

Weaknesses:

The supplied cooler is ok. Went with Lian Li Galahad cooler. Since this is my media pc for my home theatre this setup is so so quiet.

Additional Comments:

First time with AMD. Ditch intel and get more for less of your hard earned money. Can't see going back to Intel for a long long time now.

Took the plunge

Strengths:

Able to clock up to 4.40 GHz on all cores while keeping temps below 75 constant Achieve 3600xt performance at a fraction of the cost. Good price

Weaknesses:

None cept I didn't use the provided cooler seeing as I had a 212 Evo clone

Additional Comments:

Bought this along with a mag b550 bazooka and some 16gb flairx 3200 ram .running with a msi armor rx5808gb oc running at 1500/2150 And this thing rips . Am able to run ultra settings in pretty much anything I've thrown at it Solid 55fps on the new MFS with ultra settings. Pulling maxed frames on quake champions At ultra .I have my monitor locked at 166mhz and it stays their O er all very happy.

Great processor

Weaknesses:

The included CPU fan was driving me nuts. It had an annoying high-frequency sound. I had to shell out some more money for a better fan.

Additional Comments:

Great processor for the price, and for what I need. First time buying an AMD, but happy with my purchase.

Great price performance

Strengths:

Excellent price Excellent performance

Weaknesses:

OEM Cooler is Average

Additional Comments:

Very happy with this buy, such a monster for the price. I did need to replace the fan with a better tower cooler, but otherwise this has been an awesome buy. I also built a 3670X based PC for Video and rendering, where the extra performance is helpful, but for a nicely performing Work/Gaming crossover, this processor is AWESOME!

Cpu is great

Strengths:

Not going to comment on performance, like others have said its great.

Weaknesses:

Would not recommend sticking with the stock cooler. I understand temps are subjective and should be taken with a grain of salt however... case open, case closed in a highly air conditioned basement has quite high idle temps. With moderate use temps weren't unreasonable but for longterm I would avoid using this cooler.

Additional Comments:

Make the necessary changes to the budget to allow for a Cooler Master 212 Series CPU Cooler, or better.

Must buy - the little engine that could

Strengths:

This CPU hits the sweet spot for the price to power ratio, and You may even see a GPU boost because of better PCI support on the motherboards. I would say go with a 500 series motherboards as they will support PCI-express 4.0.

Weaknesses:

RAM compatibility can be an issue, and on the 400 series motherboards, you may need a bios update to get it to work (memory express team can take care of that for you at time of purchase!) so get it Quick Mounted by them.

Additional Comments:

Great for both budget builds as well as main workstations.

The little CPU that can - David slays Goliath.

Strengths:

Finally, Intel-like single-core performance (perhaps slightly better IPC). Price. Easy drop-in upgrade for 300 and 400 series motherboards.

Weaknesses:

Can't reach Intel clockspeeds (but this is okay given the Ryzen 3000 series' drastic improvement in IPC over Ryzen 1000 and 2000). The included cooler is anemic (I didn't use it). Very likely requires BIOS updates to work on older 300 and 400 series boards - not a weakness, but a reminder.

Additional Comments:

This replaced an R5 1600, and it's noticeably quicker in all respects. It "just worked" in my older ASUS X370 board. Benchmarks yield a 20-30% overall improvement over the 1600. Single core performance is finally up to (and slightly better) than Intel, which is the great leap of the Ryzen 3000 over its predecessors. If you've got a 300 or 400 series motherboard, make sure you've flashed it to the latest BIOS, then drop this thing in and go. Recommended.

Golden CPU

Strengths:

This chip is a beast in all applications and the price to performance is unbeatable. I upgraded from R5 1600 to the R5 3600 and the performance is excellent especially in gaming.

Weaknesses:

None

Additional Comments:

This chip provides excellent performance and will last me years. Thermals are good and any hiccups I was experiencing with my last chip are gone. AMD has really hit it out of the park with this chip.
