I upgraded from the amd fx 4350 and all i can say is wow! Most people would think a CPU upgrade wouldnt improve gameplay that much whatsoever, but my gaming experience has dramatically increased, especially on cpu heavy titles like planetside 2.
Games run better, editing tools/software development tools run better, the internet is faster for some reason(idk why, prob has nothin to do with my cpu lol).
Basically, if you have the budget, go for this here cpu.
Has great overclocking potential. I did a minor OC with a basic cooler and it did 4GHz over all cores, easy. I posted a picture of my UserBenchmark score here.
If you have a better cooler, it can do so much more!
I have owned many CPUs from Intel and AMD. My last CPU was an Intel, but ever since AMD came out with the Ryzen line of CPUs, I wanted one.
Now that I own one, I can honestly say, these CPUs are BEASTS!
Good job AMD!
I would definitely recommend AMD over Intel now. ;)

Installing with the AM4 sockets is a piece of cake, there's a small triangle on the processor and on the socket in the motherboard, orientate them the same way, line up the pins with the holes and pull the clip down. Pea sized amount of thermal paste and fit your CPU cooler.
Upon installing the first CPU i was getting weird freezes just after, during or before the windows 10 welcome screen. No blue screen message just the PC would freeze, I replaced every other component and still had crashes it was the processor. Amazon sent a replacement the next day and that has been working a dream, i had to upgrade my computer to run apex legends and this processor handles games with ease. CPUs with all the pins straight being faulty is incredibly rare, 0.001% territory but just a heads up if you get as unlucky as me, the freezing during different stages of boot and no blue screen may be the processor at fault like I had.
NOTES IF YOU ARE GETTING THIS PROCESSOR;
AMD Ryzen 1600x and other x processors do not come with stock coolers, you will need an AM4 socket compatible stock cooler to fit on installation.
If you aren't getting an AM4 socket motherboard with XMP ability do not get DDR4 RAM with a clock speed higher than 2666mhz.
This processor is a beast for the money and tackles any modern game with ease, the Ryzen master drivers allow you to overclock and tweak the processors performance with ease.
Despite getting a faulty processor originally, I still can't recommend the processor enough. The sellers professionalism with replacing the faulty part instantly, crap happens sometimes and I feel like I just got unlucky.
It’s still a fantastic unit, but make sure you’ve taken these aspects into account
Ho venduto il mio caro buon Intel Xeon e3-1231-v3 per passare ad un Ryzen 1600x sotto il mio Seidon 120 v2 ( con placca per AM4 ) vecchio ormai 3 anni.
Cercando di vendere lo Xeon in quale negozio di PC nelle vicinanze, mi ricordo che ad AK Informatica (AN), mi dissero che stavo sbagliando a passare ad AMD: "Passerai più tempo a risolvere problemi che ad usare il computer".
Quanto li ho distrutti secondo voi, quando gli ho mostrato benchmark e prove che non c'è stato nessun problema?
A parte ciò, ho preso un Asus Strix b350-f con 8GB di RAM Kingstone HyperX a 3200MHz.
La prima cosa che ho fatto appena ho acceso il PC, è stato andare nel bios ed aggiornarlo con la chiavetta che avevo preparato prima con la versione 4011 e poi attivare il D.O.C.P. per mettere le RAM a 3200MHz: fatto ciò ho riavviato.
Con un'altra chiavetta ho installato Windows 10 e subito mi sono accorto della differenza di fluidità tra le finestre.
Ero super curioso di vedere cosa usciva nel benchmark di CPU-Z e... stavo per cadere dalla sedia: single thread di 440 punti ( +20 punti rispetto allo Xeon ) e 3430 punti in Multithreads ( +1400 punti rispetto allo Xeon ).
Cinebench R15 fantastico... 1257 punti con frequenze stock.
Con AIDA64 Extreme, le RAM volano: sono passato da 13GB/s read & write a quasi 50GB/s.
Su GTA5 non riuscivo a portare la GPU al 100% ( arrivando persino al 60% ) ma ora al 100%, ho guadagnato +20fps in tantissime zone.
AMD ha fatto veramente un lavoro eccezionale con questi Ryzen.
Le temperature sono OK ( 35 idle e 50 gaming e 64 max in benchmark ) con il mio Seidon 120V v2 di 3 anni.
Con l'arrivo della seconda generazione è meglio puntare a quella.
CONSIGLIO? ASSOLUTAMENTE SI.
CPU is great for tasks such as streaming/video encoding, slight impact on gaming due to AMD and not Intel, but still is pretty good!
if your creating a build for gaming and workloads, would highly recommend! if only for games, and not streaming or doing any works loads or such, would recommend Intel instead.
Just bought this and now I am getting over 100 fps consistently (on high). Very impressed, also runs my CPU intensive games much more smoothly and quickly, like Warhammer 2 etc.
For only £170 I cannot complain in the slightest.
* 3.6Ghz, 3.7Ghz all core boost and 4Ghz single core boost
** Destiny 2, RB6 Siege, CODWW2, Battlefield 1, GTAV
*** I only have 60hz 2k monitor but with v-sync off I usually see between 70 and 90fps
Do remember you need to by a cooler too (no freebie with this), but that doesn't change the fact that this is an awesome bargain.
I originally intended to get its successor, the 2600X, but found my motherboard needed a firmware update to support it. Doesn't really matter though, because the 1600X is plenty powerful enough. What with it being on the AM4 socket, there are plenty of options for a later upgrade if need be.
If you are like me, and you are a little strapped for cash but want serious performance, buy the 1600x. I mainly game with some content creation and let me tell you, this things ability to render audio, well, my last machine which was a quad core took about 3-4 times as long depending on the file format. So yeah, in summary, great CPU for the price, definitely recommend it.
However, if you're purchasing the 1600x make sure you have an AM4 compatible CPU cooler as there isn't one supplied with this processor. Got caught out so ended up in PC World at very short notice purchasing a fan.
Typical Amazon prime delivery - so happy with that.
