Do you have you a question about the AMD Ryzen 5 (1600X) 3.6GHz Processor 16MB L3 Cache (PIB)?

Q: Would this cpu work fine without a cooler?
Answer by Kristian on 1st February 2019
No, all modern cpu's will need some kind of cooling on them or they will drastically overheat, not only causing shorter lifespan but also meaning that your computer will most likely not even boot. - Kristian N

Q: Hi, could you recommend a cooler to go with this cpu? I have an Asus Prime B350-A motherboard and a Corsair CC-9011086-WW Carbide Series 88R Windowed mATX/Mini-ITX PC Tower Case. Would the Be Quiet Pure Rock Slim fit?
Answer by Dan on 12th April 2017
Third party cooler support for the AM4 socket is a little difficult at present, but manufacturers are adding upgrade kits regularly. The Pure Rock Slim uses a standard AMD hinge clip design, so should work fine out of the box. -Danlevan

Upgraded from a Ryzen 3 1300x and this is a noticeable upgrade for me while gaming, only downside is theres no cooler in the box but I saw that as an opportunity to go for a better option anyways. Excellent value vs the competition

Incredibly powerful and pairs incredibly welll with my EVGA 1070 SC. I definitely recommend to anyone searching for a cpu currently. At the time I bought this, it was only 136 pounds at well. Thank you CCL!
