Unique Technologies

StoreMI Ryzen Master
AMD StoreMI Technology AMD Ryzen™ Master Utility
SSDs are fast, but expensive, and offer minimal capacity. Mechanical hard drives boast large capacity for a low price, but are much slower than an SSD. AMD StoreMI technology “combines” these two types of storage into a single drive and automatically moves the data you access the most to the SSD. Every AMD Ryzen™ processor is multiplier-unlocked from the factory, so you can personalize performance to your taste. AMD provides the AMD Ryzen™ Master utility to access this powerful advantage.

Perfect product for my motherboard

Absolutely best for value CPU on the market. If you can get this on sale you're laughing! Highly recommend getting this over other CPUs around the price.

Back to AMD from a few years on Intel. Read the reviews - look at the benchmarks and weigh up the "bang for your hard-earned buck" - this Ryzen 5 3600X ticks a lot of the boxes! Easy installation in a new ASUS ROG Strix B550-F motherboard , easiest ever fan installation - probably took longer to get it out of the box than to fit it to the motherboard. Initial testing very positive and has given new life to a somewhat older Nvidia GPU. (Still trying to get used to seeing Windows 10 device manager list 12 Processors!)

For the difference in price between this and the 3700X with an RGB cooler (vs a cooler that is a little noisy and has no lighting) I feel I should have opted for the latter.

It hasn't been challenged by anything I've thrown at it so far

My review won't be technical. Would recommend you google this processor (and others) to find out specs and determine what you need. I bought this for mainly photo editing. The clock speed of 3.8mhz being the main spec utilised by photoshop and similar programs. So far I've not had any issues with speed. Worth stating that I've not yet been using any monstrous file sizes. Good value for this processor, which came bundled with the AMD wraith cooler (which had thermal paste pre-applied). Installation was simple enough. I have indulged a tad since buying this processor. I've bought a few games from Steam... nothing top of the line but everything plays smoothly nonetheless. Recommended!

Good CPU for gaming

Good start after an Intel Quad Core

Flying like a fart

Fast processor that is very efficient and for majority of the stuff I throw at it, still manages to perform well without high utilisation

Excellent cpu


September 2019

Great cpu with an OK cooler. Boosted consistently to 4.2ghz stock cooler and stock settings. The cooler, wraith spire, is not bad by any means but if you're coming from a substantially less powerful cpu like i was, then the temperatures might make you slightly uncomfortable. On the bright side, pretty much most cpu coolers nowadays support AM4 so you might be able to use your old cooler, if you have one.


August 2019

Superb Gaming CPU, many people opt for the 3600, but I think, the extra 200 or so MHz , and better binned is worth the extra.This should future proof my system for at least4-6 years . once you get things set up properly, ie, latest BIOS and chipset drivers. Although the cooler provided is adequate,I recommend an after market cooler to keep things totally under control. An enthusiast piece of equipment

For price to performance it's hard to find better...
