Exactly as advertised and delivery was super quick too.

Purchased this as it was a good value buy with everything sky-rocketing in price. Certainly gave my PC the kick it needed.


November 2021

This cpu is more of a ryzen 2600 lite edition then anything else, much better then my previous ryzen 3100. Feels a lot more responsive too, come with a basic cooler works nicely.

As usual this ryzen chips is very good value for those who just want a good stable computer for General use like surfing the net ,office work , design and light gaming the ryzen 5 1600 is the best for all these especially when installed in a msi motherboard


September 2021

For the first week after purchase I was using stock cooler. Unfortunately AMD decided to use super glue instead of heat sink compound on this cooler and when I was trying to remove it the cooler I have pulled the processor out of the socket... Luckily no pins were bent and it is working. Clearly Intel's socket is far superior.

Great service fantastic cpu well happy

Best bang for buck gaming cpu on the market right now. AMD have out done themselves with performance levels similar to the ryzen 2600 but around 20 to 30 cheaper. What a steal !
