- Still an awesome PC for gaming in mid-2022- May 24, 2022
I know that I’m a little late to the party on AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors, but I needed to build a desktop in the first half of 2022 (mostly for gaming )and decided Ryzen was the way to go. I installed this into a Gigabyte Aorus X570 Elite motherboard and paired it with 2x16GB sticks of Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200 MHz. Paired with a RTX 3060, my computer performs amazingly well for the price. I honestly feel like I got an amazing deal since the 5600x is $100 less than it was at launch. Even with the AM5 socket and Ryzen 7000 series on the rise, this chip is still extremely capable as a gaming PC, I have no concerns about my system being competent for years to come.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great CPU!- June 2, 2021
This CPU is a beast for the price. Pairs great with my B550 Gaming Plus MOBO and Gigabyte 3070 Aorus Master. Couldn't be happier with my first PC build from January this year.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Processor, Ok Price- July 26, 2021
It is a really fast processor. I have used it in many builds and have also had a chance to compare it against the i5 11600k, which it beats. There are a few issues I have run into however, although I cannot say for certain they are attributed to this processor specifically, since I changed both this and the MOBO for each build. One is that AMD Ryzen Master works well for a while, then suddenly it just stops opening properly even after reboot. The only thing that alleviates it is a reinstall of the program. I'll have to do a clean install of Windows and possibly try a different drive to know for certainYes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fast, best in class, no boot issues ever new build- February 15, 2022
Amazing CPU and for the price, I would purchase this over any bigger CPU’s. I paired it with a AMD 570 series motherboard and specifically a AMD GPU ( for my first build 6900XT ) I had built my first all AMD PC, I build PC’s as one of my businesses and when the ryzen 5 series launched I mistakenly bought this beast thinking that this was the 5000G series and now that I’m thinking about it I have forgotten all about buying one. My really wanted to test the performance of the G series unfortunately Best Buy does not sell those and being an elite member I run my PC building business using my Best Buy Credit Card. The build above was only a reference to my first build using the CPU and was my personal build any Am4 socket board 550 series or higher and 5000 series GPU or higher and you will love your performance! invida GPUs are fine as well. I have no build 14 pcs using the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7’s and I recommend the 5 over the 7 due to price point but I recommend both over Intel’s 11th generation.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing Performance- July 6, 2021
I bought this new in February before the MRSP went down, and I feel like I got every cent worth of performance at $500. At the current price, this CPU is an absolute STEAL. The Precision Boost Overdrive has me hitting 4.7 ghz and the performance is out for this world. Paired with a 3080 Ti, I am out benchmarking 3090/5950x combos. Once “downside”, if you can call it that… she runs hot. As with all the 5000 series CPUs you’ll want to pick up a good cooler. I have a Corsair 240mm AIO cooler and it does the trick just fine! Absolutely recommend anyone wanting to do gaming and standard PC work on their build. Cannot say enough how much I have been impressed by this processor.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
