Also, for those who may be curious;it came packaged just fine. No dents, no nicks, no scratches etc. Everything is (or was on arrival) just fine.
I highly recommend this PC for mid-class *MID BUDGET* video rendering and enthusiast *BUDGET* class gaming.
I have a microatx case with 5 case fans wired to the PSU, so full power all the time (This thing sits under my desk, is not very loud to me anyway, and the barely audible fan noise is relaxing in my opinion). Cinebench is the only time I have ever seen the CPU actually run at full load. Even then temps were only registering in the high 50s per HWmonitor and Ryzen Master.
Currently I have it overclocked to 3.6ghz on the stock voltages through the UEFI on my MB. Idle temps are ~33c and high 50's again during Cinebench runs. Ryzen master is a cool utility, and is useful for finding your processors sweet spot for OC. I could definitely push this thing further and have, but I literally do not load it anywhere near 100% ever. Even 60% for that matter. Mainly I play Cities:Skylines, CS:Source, Civ, various RTS games and do a lot of batch photo editing and video processing in Aftershot Pro and Vegas respectively. This thing doesn't break a sweat.
I don't understand the need to have the "fastest" processor out there, even those trying to get this thing over 4.0ghz. Seriously, this thing is fast enough and powerful enough for whatever gaming and other programs you want to run. Definitely future proof for the next 5 years at least. Just buy it, and try to torture it. It will just laugh at you.
essentially if you have any graphics card under a gtx 1070 or vega 56 this processor will give comparable performance to even the best gaming cpu's
considering there is very few games that currently max all of the r5 1600's threads technology will eventually catch up and starts utilizing more threads in more games so this processor will only become better with time.
not to mention that it has a great upgrade path laid out for it currently (zen+ probably wont be super amazing but zen 2 looks mighty promising)
I was able to overclock to 3.7gh extremely easily literally only had to go into the bios and change the frequency from 3.2 to 3.7. no voltage changes or anything and it runs like a dream not to mention the included cooler is quiet and does it's job very well and it even has the thermal paste spread on it so there is no need for a 212 evo/artic fox paste or anything like that
if you are an average user and want a processor that can handle anything you throw at it then get this processor! (if you are streaming/doing heavy workloads the i7 8700 or r7 1700 would be better choices however the r5 still can competently do even that)
in a nut shell the last big advancement for cpus that blew everyone away was intels i5 2500k (i believe) back in 2010 the r5 1600 is the next big advancement that people are going to be talking about for the next few years

It is fully compatible with pretty much all A320/B350/X370 boards straight out of the box without needing any BIOS updates, as it was one of the original Ryzen 5 chips, unlike the newer APUs (namely 2200G and 2400G) which may need a BIOS update first. Installation is fairly straightforward, just release the latch on the motherboard, carefully place the CPU into the socket, and line it up with the golden triangle so you get it in the correct way around. As it relies on the pins at the bottom, be careful when handling it so as to not damage any pins - hold it around the sides if possible.
Once installed, it comes with the superb "Wraith Spire" cooler (included in the price), which does a good job of keeping the CPU at cool temperatures without the need for a third-party solution, and the thermal paste comes pre-applied. This is a little trickier to install depending on the motherboard, but it is 4 screws and if you cross (do one corner then the opposite) which ones you tighten, it is easier and prevents damage from putting too much pressure on one area. Once installed and plugged into the CPU fan header, it idles at around 33 degrees celcius on my machine (which is a good temperature for a stock cooler), however your own results may vary slightly. Even with lots of programs, including a game and a virtual machine running, it only reached 55 degrees celcius, so there will be some room for a mild overclock using this cooler, provided you are using a B350 or X370 chipset. It also runs quietly, you can barely hear the fans even when they are spinning fully.
The performance of the processor itself is great, it'll match or beat most Intel i5 offerings (and even some i7 chips), which is excellent considering the noticeable price difference and the better stock cooler that AMD provides. For multi-core workloads (such as video editing) it works perfectly, and while the single-core performance isn't quite as good (this isn't really too much of an issue), once software can fully optimise all of the cores, it'll perform drastically better. It also handles gaming well, paired with even a 750Ti it can handle games such as Rocket League on High/Ultra settings at 70-100FPS, so paired with a better GPU will yield great results in even modern triple-A titles.
Be sure to download the Ryzen Master software from AMD, where you can monitor the temperature accurately and adjust CPU settings, as well as the AMD Ryzen Chipset Drivers, which include a Windows power plan which is optimised for use with Ryzen CPUs.
In conclusion, I couldn't be happier with this Ryzen 5 1600. Smashes competition in terms of price to performance, includes a great cooler and runs pretty much anything you can throw at it with ease. I would highly reccommend this processor.
Da sempre stato un appassionato d'informatica (che per altro è la mia materia di studio); dopo aver trovato un amico disposto a prendersi la mia combo di MOBO, RAM e CPU per il suo primo computer ad una cifra vantaggiosa per entrambi. Mi sono messo alla ricerca dei sostituti, con dei requisiti minimi questa volta obbligatori per la CPU:
1) Deve essere MINIMO quad-core (di quei quad core tosti, stile i5 di alta fascia pre-8gen).
2) Deve avere prestazioni single-threaded non indifferenti (così da permettermi di giocare ai giochi molto intensi di qualche annata fa senza problemi).
- Permettermi di fare, se possibile, OC, così inizio a sperimentare.
Tra le scelte avevo davanti allo stesso prezzo:
I3-8350k (4-core/thread. Con dissipatore stock (...)) Con proiezione futura non delle migliori
Ryzen 5 1600 (6-core / 12-thread. Con un SIGNOR dissipatore stock) E proiezione futura fino all'abbassamento dei prezzi di Zen 2 ASSICURATA
Appena arrivata la CPU l'ho immediatamente montata. Non sono molto portato per le attività manuali, infatti il dissipatore mi ha dato parecchi problemi nel montaggio (ho visto che l'ha dato a molti oltre che a me, basta applicare molta forza).
Dopo qualche giorno sono subito passando all'OC. Ottenendo risultati a parer mio eccellenti:
1) Frequenza CPU 3,9GHz@1.248V
2) 72°C massimo dopo mezz'ora di Prime95
3) In gaming non supero i 55°C (Ovviamente dipende tutto anche dall'areazione del vostro case. La mia non eccelle particolarmente ma va bene)
4) Risultati in benchmark osservabili negli screenshot.
Detto questo, attenzione a cosa le affiancate per dei semplici motivi.
1) Ha bisogno di una frequenza molto alta della RAM per gestire al meglio tutte le sue operazioni.
2) Se le affiancate delle ram con b-die samsung. Ci guadagnerete sicuramente
3) Con l'XMP io ho avuto qualche problemino, ma nulla di particolare.
Spero di esservi stato utile,
Als Upgrade habe ich mir den 1600er ausgesucht, weil der 1600X eigentlich keinerlei wichtige Vorteile bietet, außer
das er teurer ist.
Der Ryzen 5 sitzt bei mir auf nem ASRock B350 Mainboard und ist auf 3,9 ghz übertaktet.
Mit diesem Takt, lässt er I7 und I5 von Intel weit hinter sich.
Zugegeben, sobald man nen Intel übertaktet, sind die auch wieder weit vorne, aber darum gehts ja nicht.
Die CPU hat als Kühler einen Alpenföhn Ben Nevis (Unbedingte Empfehlung!!) und wird unter Last nicht
wärmer wie 50 Grad. Im Idle bzw Desktop Betrieb beträgt die Temperatur im übertakteten Zustand nur 25 Grad.
Gemessen mit HWinfo.
Das ist lächerlich wenig und lässt natürlich auch die Lüfter nur leise säuseln.
Die allgemeine Performance ist der Wahnsinn, alles läuft. einfach alles.
Ob Video Bearbeitung, Musik produzieren, Spiele... Alles.
Mit den Ryzen CPU's hat AMD endlich den nötigen Schritt getan um Intel die Stirn zu bieten.
Von mir ne absolute Kaufempfehlung.
You will find various motherboards of AM4 sockets starting from 3800 Rs.
Note- this cpu dont have integrated graphics so it needs a graphics card.
For those interested in Linux, you may have read of problems with Ryzens. I received a CPU manufactured in week 33 and use an MSI motherboard. I have had no issues using Linux Mint 18.2. Worked perfectly first time with no obvious problems.
I've paired this with an AMD R9 Fury 4GB HBM and they work together in unison perfectly! I would easily recommend this CPU to anyone who needs a good CPU at a good price! Ryzen is the future lads!
It's compatible with the extremely basic A-series motherboards, all B-series boards and some X-series boards without needing updates, for a full list always check the specification from the website itself as new BIOS will be released over time increasing compatibility. It's also very easy to mount on the motherboard itself, almost impossible to get wrong - just make sure you line up the right corner while has a symbol on both the processor and the AM4 socket.
The Wraith Spire cooler is just phenomenal, AMD's competitors would never include a cooler at the price range the Ryzen series started out with. I did run into a little issue but I found out when installing the cooler, it's best to do so in a "cross" shape, to apply even pressure across all 4 screws at once. The cooler itself isn't RGB but does a great job of keeping it cool under very heavy loads. I would recommend buying third party thermal paste as standard - it will give you a few more FPS under max temps for minimal cost.
Performance is phenomenal for the time this chip was released - video editing with this outclasses laptops over 10x its current asking price. It's getting a little outdated now (2019) and I would recommend waiting out the new socket AMD will probably bring to the market in 1/2 years if you can wait that long but if you need a simple workhorse PC now for anything that isn't intensive gaming, this is a fantastic budget choice.
Five stars. This literally changed the market.
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Desktop CPU - AM4 / Hex Core / 3.2 GHz /19MB / 65W
By the time I devised a plan to get the screws in the thermal paste had dried up so I had to clean that up and re-apply. I had to put more pressure than I felt comfortable with on top of the cooler to prevent it lifting when I was applying pressure to the spring loaded screws and go around the cooler turning each screw half a thread at a time one by one. If I was using a more expensive motherboard I would have probably stopped and ordered an aftermarket cooler.
Half of my time spent building the computer was spent installing this cooler and I would never want to do it again.
Thanks AMD for making everything so easy!
Gehäuse: Fractal Node 202
CPU: Ryzen 1600
Lüfter: Cryorig C7
RAM: G.Skill DIMM 16 GB DDR4-2400
HDD: Samsung 960 EVO m.2
Durch seine 6 Kerne mit 12 Threads á 3.2ghz schiebt das gute Stück einiges an Leistung vor sich her und ich habe im FullHD bereich keinerlei Probleme mit dem Prozessor.
Übertakten lässt er sich auch wunderbar, wobei hier der einschränkende Faktor das kleine Gehäuse und der flache Lüfter ist. Hier rate ich zur Vorischt: Im Fractal Node 202 wird es sehr schnell warm und man sollte de Gehäuse stets aufrecht betreiben, damit die heiße Luft vom Prozessor gut entweichen kann.
Mittlerweile hat die Kiste meinen betagten Spielerechner abgelöst und ich bereue es nicht im geringsten.
AMD kommt mir gerne wieder ins Haus.
Add a suitable mini ITX case which Amazon has plenty, and an after market GTX 1060 3G and you get a gaming media centre that thrashes the top end Intel Hades for around £450, i.e. half the price of the Intel Hades, more CPU and graphics processing power for gaming, and in a mini ITX form factor!
