Q: would just like to correct you guys this does have the rgb cooler ive just bought one from you
Answer by Website User on 1st May 2018
Our information is based of the AMD website which lists this as coming with a non-LED "Wraith Spire" cooler (, but if you somehow got one with an LED cooler - great!

Q: Would you say that this would be a significant upgrade from the FX6300? - Even in non-gaming applications?
Answer by Website User on 5th October 2017
This is a significant upgrade but most likely not for regular programs like Email, web browsing etc. You would see a different if you were gaming or running process intensive programs like Video, photo editing etc.

Can't be beat in price performance, performance isn't the best ever but at this price it definitely blows anything else out of the water. Big upgrade over my previous Intel Core i5 4590S and can hopefully upgrade to a Ryzen 5000 series CPU at some point on the same platform for very impressive gaming performance.

Great budget cpu

Anthony Richards

June 2020

Straight out of the box this CPU is just great value at just 90. 6 cores and 12 threads is certainly enough for me.


June 2020

Can confirm that it is the updated 1600AF version of this processor. Great value for money, however my unit came with a shard of plastic stuck onto the thermal paste, which caused some thermal paste to be lost as it was removed. The in-built fan was also somewhat difficult to attach to my motherboard base plate, which was intimidating as a first-time builder. However, both issues were resolved with persistence and I have had zero issues with this processor since.


May 2020

When I brought it it was the best bang for your buck CPU.


May 2020

A Fantastic value for money! Great for gaming and an office tasks.


May 2020

Below 100 for a 6-core, 12-thread CPU, great for budget gaming build


May 2020

Amazing value 6-core CPU. Received the AF model, definitely recommended. Service from CCL was top notch. Thank you!!

It's the 12Nm AF version, fantastic value for money.

A solid cpu worth every penny!!!

Adrian Wilson

May 2020

Although 3 core across 2ccx, when paired with 3200-cl16 ram, it will easily do 4.0ghz on the stock cooler @~64c.


May 2020

Top value for money this cpu. Would recommend


May 2020

This is the AF version, great price


May 2020

Brilliant cpu, came super early especially during the given situation right now. Couldnt have asked for better service. My loyalty is with this company when i buy all my pc parts.


May 2020

with building my last pc from cclonline with all there parts at fair price's its been great nice easy website to use and super fast shipping

Excellent Service

Martin Preston

April 2020

Lovely "1600"/2600. Is the AF model which is a bargain as its just a slightly underclocked 2600. Perfect for my girlfriends PC. Good communication from CCL and quick delivery


April 2020

Excellent value and performance.


April 2020

Literally the best CPU money can buy. I play all my games just fine at 1080p 144hz with a 1660 Super. Take shadow of the tomb raider for example, a nice look game with many graphic options, close to max settings it maintains over 80 FPS. PUBG around 120fps. Seriously a 6 core hyper threaded CPU thats just as good as the 2600 of you get the AF model, all for under 100, is an absolute amazing price.

It arrived on time and it works...


April 2020

Excellent value. A very capable 6 core / 12 thread processor for less than 100. Thank you AMD.


April 2020

Great product. No problems with it as of yet. Exactly as described for a great price.


March 2020

Good product easy to fit works well


March 2020

Great value CPU. CCL customer service was quickly available before purchase to confirm this was the 12nm/AF model, which is what I was looking for.

Sean Mcgee

March 2020

Can't believe it's not a 2600.

Matthew Hollins

March 2020

Excellent value. Especially since it was the AF version.


March 2020

Great CPU at a very competitive price, matches up the 2600 after a slight OC and can be pushed much further!


February 2020

Great product at a great price.


February 2020

Would recommend for any builder on a budget. Don't think anything really comes close at this price point. Absolute bargain.


February 2020

Cracking CPU for the cost.

Joseph Smith

February 2020

1600 af is the best value for money cpu on the market 100%.


February 2020

I called CCL to make sure this was in fact the new AF version of this chip. The chap was very knowledgeable and assured me it was. As an IT professional it was refreshing to speak to someone who knows their stuff. A bit like chatting with someone in your native language. This processor is the king of value right now in early 2020. It is a 2600 in every way except the name and very a small clockspeed reduction, but since it's unlocked as with all ryzen parts I was able to achieve an effortless 4ghz overclock at just under 1.3v. Temps are excellent using a prism cooler. Board is the legendary Tomahawk Max. Made for a perfect 2nd gaming machine. If you're building a budget or mid-range PC there is no competition for this cpu. Wonderful processor and absolutely incredible value for 6 cores and 12 threads.

Brilliant. fast delivery and top quality. A trader you can trust

Bought for my 2nd rig with 16GB DDR4 3000MHz RAM (planned for use as video suite for gaming vids) sadly the GPU died before I rebuilt it. LOL. great delivery now they use Royal Mail 2-3 days as opposed to 5-7 with other couriers nothing gets forward tracked and then sits in a depot for 3 days, also not getting fleeced 14 for highlands and Islands delivery like you do with all other delivery firms. Good job CCL, cheaper than the big names like OCUK and Scan, will definitely use them again and Highly recommend to anyone needing parts :)


December 2019

Perfect for the money, great cpu. The guys at CCL are great

December 2019

great value for money got it 50 cheaper than everywhere else and does exactly what i need it to do.


October 2019

Product arrived quickly and in perfect condition.


October 2019

Paired with sapphire pulse RX 570 4GB GPU. Only runs to 25% on AAA games. Efficient cooling and a relatively smooth sounding fan. Also comes with larger heatsink as standard (Wraith spire). 12 threads for 100. Perfect choice for a sub 600 gaming rig.

Colin Russell Creasser

September 2019

Absolutely fantastic, the speeds in which it runs and the value for money is fantastic, definitely no regrets buying this.


September 2019

One of the cheapest and best mid entry processors.. The best value for money and 6 core too!

Wayland Sothcott

October 2018

I've installed two of these and more recently the new Ryzen 5 2600. The new one is about 10% quicker which is nice but really not much in it. Either one is excellent. The standard heatsink it comes with is fine. I would say don't bother with the 1600X unless you want to overclock because it is a hotter part.


October 2018

great performance per pound CPU - even without overclocking it smashes modern AAA games when paired with good RAM and high end graphics card.


October 2018

Perfect for the price. I wanted a cheap CPU with good performance and multiple cores for a home lab hypervisor running ProxMox. While I have read about some people having problems with this in similar configurations I think these problems are down to older bios on the Motherboard. I have had no problems as its been performing well for months of 24/7 use. May not match the fastest I7s from Intel but then it costs nothing like them either. Very good value for money.

Good processor for my pc, easy to set up
