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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.
