Do you have you a question about the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7GHz Hexa Core Processor with 6 Cores, 12 Threads, 65W TDP, 35MB Cache, 4.6GHz Turbo, Wraith Stealth Cooler?

Q: I plan to build with the 5600x, which mother board will I need and will it need a bios update, as i only have an intel PC at present. I game on warzone and watch youtube etc.
Answer by Website User on 1st November 2020
Best option would be B550 or X570 as they support PCI-E Gen 4 graphics cards and ssd's and majority allow BIOS flash without CPU. Contact CCL when you order as they can update BIOS if required.

Price:performance ratio is well worth it. Not only that, CCL do offer an excellent service. Thanks CCL

Whats got 6 cores, a low TDP and an included fan that "does the job"? This processor. It's great, but given the current scalper led market it's also waaaaay over priced. I bought at 30+ over the MSRP. An MSRP by the way that still makes this a slightly expensive value proposition v.s. the 5800X.

Great processor with amazing bench test scores. I'm Running with 3600mhz Ram which apparently is the sweet spot for this CPU. Motherboard is a MSI Tomahawk X570 which again at this CPU price point is the best choice. I did loads and loads of research before settling for this set up and I'm so glad I did.

James T. McNulty

After watching and reading reviews I decided that this would be the best choice to last for a while with the new architecture from AMD. The cpu does what I want exceptionally well, I do a lot of CAD work as well as play games and this gave the best of both worlds. The prices on CCL were very competitive and were some of the cheapest around for this cpu and had stock. I look forward to properly testing the cpu and seeing what is capable of but so far is working well.

Great good value cpu, came quickly and as described

The 5600x seem able to access motherboard resources more efficiently - Running a full 4 pass memtest86 V9.0 on a 3800x indicates a speed of 19179 MB/s and takes 6 hours 16 mins to complete. The 5600x indicates a speed of 48521 MB/s and takes 4 hours and 19mins to complete with everything else the same (Aorus X570 Pro / Ballistix 32 GB DDR4 3600).

I bought this as I'm rebuilding a gaming rig that's got a bit long in the tooth. I'm using it with an MSI X570 Tomahawk WiFi motherboard and they seem to work well together. It's got plenty of power for my gaming needs - I really don't need any more cores and it's single core speed is better than previous Ryzen's apparently. This is the first non Intel platform I've built as Intel CPU's were always far superior for gaming but not any longer it seems. I'm not even bothering to overclock as it's boost speed is great without it. My systems are watercooled but even so this processor seems to run nice and cool. My maximum temperatures recorded whilst gaming never really exceed 50 degrees which is very low. Overall this seems to have the ideal balance of cores, speed and price for a top level gaming rig and I highly recomend it. If only I could find an RTX 3080 to pair it with......

Francesco

last month

This is a great CPU and plays all modern games on high settings when paired with a good graphics card. The price was a bit inflated due to supply shortages in December.

Paul Ireland

Coming from an i5-6500, the 5600x is blazingly fast. Complex Boolean operations with millions of vertexes in Blender are significantly quicker, even using the same 2133mhz RAM. One thing to note is that the 5600x runs much hotter than I was expecting. My i5 idled at 30C and maxed out at 65C under load. The 5600x idles at around 40C and maxes out at around 90C with the stock cooler. At first I thought I'd installed the stock heatsink and fan incorrectly, but according to AMD, these temperatures are normal and nothing to be concerned about. I do see some thermal throttling when under sustained load (from 4.3Gghz down to 4.19). That is only when fully loading all cores with combined CPU+GPU rendering, which is a heavier load than I'd expect when gaming.

When comparing between 3700x and this product the 5600x won on all things gaming. If i had r a workstation CPU the 3700x would be better. Good price a little over RRP but stocks are low and not over priced

Great cpu, but be careful on prices...Few days after I ordered, it dropped by 20, and the motherboard I ordered dropped 18...So I've lost 38 because I ordered a few days earlier...The cpu itself it's great, and would benefit of a lower price, and without the cooler that comes with, I doubt people would use it anyway... A bit steep on price for a 6 core cpu, but, hopefully in the next few months the price will come down to under 300, and will worth it more :)

Phil

Wow, I've got this baby running on stock cooler & actually doing some heavily threaded work & although it looks like there appears to be some reduction in boost due to temps (not the 95 throttle, but I've read over ~ 65 or 68 the boost is reduced) it's crunching through the workload 6 times faster than it's replacement i5-4570 ...chip + 4 * the ram to be more accurrate. All the reviews I read tended to be gaming focused, if you're looking to use the threads too, then I'd recommend a descent cooler. My initial guestimate is it will run another 15% or so faster if kept under the boost limit. Excellent chip.
