To run a second Gen Ryzen like the one you are looking at, the motherboard may require a BIOS update, this can only be done with a 1st Gen Ryzen or an A-Series Chip. If you contact our sales team on 01274 471 201. - Matthewt

Great processor for gaming. Better value than its Pentium counterparts and in my view performs just as well. Great for building your gaming pc.

Very good value for money for a mid level PC build without the hassle of overclocking the 2600 to achieve the same performance.

Great CPU! Runs everything Ive tried to play, AAA titles included. Very cheep considering What you get for your money, and the 2600x, if done right, can be overclocked to the power of a Ryzen 7 2700!

For PhotoShop and InDesign, I'm wondering if I even need a discrete gfx card. Ryzen 5 and 7 are proving to be powerhouses, feeling quicker with integrated graphics under Win 10 than comparable Intel offerings. AMD's stock coolers are also far better.

Does its job, running with GTX 1060 and 16gb of 3200 ram! Very good CPU and not had any heat issues.

Great kit from a great store, always competitively priced and free delivery if your order is over 50. I very rarely buy pc products from anywhere else.

Great Value cpu that you can just fit and forget, AMD's software takes care of "overclocking" and RAM profiles Yes the 2600 is better overall value but for pure reliability and simplicity the 2600x wins hands down. performs extremely well and program response times are fast and smooth, multi tasking is easy and stutter free. The stock cooler is more than adequate and with it being a "down draft" cooler actually helps with Mobo cooling

Excellent I like all the products and the service was excellent

Had expected a little more performance over my old i5, but it does deliver smoother fps with less spikes and at lower v-core than I had to use to get 4.2 on the i5, if there had been a bigger price gap at the time, I would have picked up the standard 2600 instead

Great all round CPU for the price. CCL Online is my go to place for PC components.
