Thank you! Great product and good price; delivered quickly and just what I needed.

mark sheppard

December 2020

this works great even with the stock cooler


September 2020

Good Quality Product at Reasonable price.


August 2020

very good cpu for day to day use and very reliable


July 2020

Very happy with my AMD Ryzen purchase, I would recommend it

George Glennie

April 2020

Snappy and smooth. Need to make sure you have a graphics card as no on board GPU.


April 2020

Fantastic processor. Eats everything.


March 2020

Really good and very fast and the fan is very easy to install and set up and really easy to play with the rgb lighting.

richard fleetham

March 2020

Very easy to install and runs very fast seems to overclock well.


March 2020

Decent processor for the price. Originally planned to use this for a while then upgrade to a 3950x but Ill probably stick with it a little longer

Carrick Oliver

March 2020

Its decent but not worth it for overclocking and I wouldn't recommend pairing it with anything higher than a rtx 2060, as the 2070 and ryzen 7 2700X tend to cause your computer to crash. If you use this cpu with a rtx 2060 it is worth getting it.

David Butler

March 2020

Fast CPU runs well


March 2020

Excellent product, easy to fit, great price and speedy delivery


March 2020

R7 2700X comes with decent box cooler, so you don't have to spend extra on cooling, unless you want to OC the CPU. It also wirks on 1st gen AM4 motherboards(after BIOS update). It was really easy swap from R5 1500X and even without OC thr 2700X is fast and reliable out of the box.

Michael Bennett

March 2020

One word excellent


February 2020

Work out of the box, no complaints. The CPU cooler it comes with was a good bonus so I don't have to invest in an aftermarket cooler.


February 2020

fast eight core cpu with good value despite being an older model. The price reduction is a plus!

mark walton

February 2020

Excellent product excellent delivery


January 2020

8 cores and 16 threads for under 200, blows my old i7 4th gen out of the water and i have noticed a significant performance jump regarding all tasks


January 2020

Quality bit of kit, changed my opinion on AMD for sure

Mr Georgi Stehov

November 2019

I love this thing. First AMD processor having previously always gone for Intel but this gives so much more for your


October 2019

Usually go for Intel, but my son needed a new PC, so chose this processor, very good, very fast, blows spots off my Intel gear, easy to set up, and the stock cooler is better than Intels, think it needs a BIOS update on the mobo as on board graphics not working

flood flood

October 2019

Needed 8 cores over 6 so for the price to performance this cpu is great

mark sayer

September 2019

Awesome, superfast. Hadn't realised how slow my pc was until I got this baby.


September 2019

Price: performance ratio is very strong


September 2019

before I had a 4 core CPU and now this is a monster if you'd compare them. no complaints it works a treat.

Ryan Bowskill

July 2019

As a former Intel fanboy, I'm a convert. AMD have done a fantastic job on these CPUs, if you're hesitating - don't! My main usage is multiboxing games, this is handling everything I can throw at it without breaking a sweat, and cheaper than an Intel equivalent! If you're planning to overclock I'd recommend an aftermarket cooler, otherwise the stock one is fine.


May 2019

So so so good. The bang for the buck of this chip is off the scale! For the price you get an 8 core, 16 thread chip that runs at a 3.7GHz clock speed as standard. But the main feature of the "X" variants is the built-in XFR 2.0 algorithms. Unlike 1st gen Ryzen, XFR 2.0 looks to dynamically boost your clock speeds as much as possible, assuming only that thermal headroom is good. If you have a good air cooler, or water-cooling then you can expect clock speeds to boost to 4.2GHz very easily, and with a bit of silicon lottery luck, 4.3GHz is possible without any manual overclocking. Even better is the running temps, thanks to a soldered IHS the chip runs cool even when boosting. Using a Scythe Mugen 5, my idle temps average 30-35 degrees Celsius with load temps of 50-55 degrees Celsius. Also included in the price is the Wraith Prism stock cooler. Unlike Intel's stock cooler, this one actually works. It's a very capable bit of kit, perfectly suited for the chip it's bundled with. An aftermarket cooler will probably provide more heat dissipation and less acoustic noise, but if you're on a budget this is perfectly adequate. It even has RGB if you're into that. But best yet, if you don't want it at all you can always sell it for a good 20 to 30 on ebay or wherever: people actually like this as a stock cooler instead of that garbage, destined-for-landfill design Intel makes. All in, this is an extremely capable chip; and with 3rd Gen Ryzen on the way very soon; expect prices for this to drop. If you're on a budget, I'd wait for the price drop for this, but if not, 3rd Gen Ryzen is set to be even better. This is a multi-tasking and workstation monster and gets great gaming performance too.


April 2019

Super fast processor. If we were more restricted with money we would have gone for the 5 2600X but could stretch to the Ryzen 7!


April 2019

I've always been an Intel guy, but the value for money on offer tempted me. Having run some benchmarks, I can honestly say this thing is seriously kick a** for the money! VERY impressed!

Dimitar Chinkov

April 2019

Very good quality


March 2019

Excellent, next day delivery


February 2019

does what it says on box excellent cpu without paying through the roof

Ninja boy

January 2019

Great product. In my personal use (gaming/streaming) I don't see a need to pay a premium for an Intel product while I can have very similar performance for half the price.


January 2019

An eight core processor that's a lot cheaper than Intel's counterpart. With the saving made on the CPU you can afford to invest more in a better GPU. I'm generally gaming fine at 4K with a 1080ti.


December 2018

What can i say about this awesome cpu , i was reluctant to move from intel but iam so glad i did its played every game ive thrown at it at ultra settings and a great pairing with my rtx 2070..

Dennis Gill

December 2018

Great price for a powerful CPU

Mark Smith

December 2018

The guys at CCL are fantastic, friendly, helpful...I can't praise them highly enough. On to the CPU. Great price for what is a powerful CPU. I usually have Android studio, Gimp, Firefox, Sichbo, Blender and a few others on the go at the same time. No problem! The stock cooler does a fair job too and is beautiful, I felt bad replacing it with my AIO cooler but I do run intensive at times and was occasionally hitting 95c. You may well be fine with it. Overall I am very happy.


December 2018

Excellent CPU at a super-competitive price (compared to Intel). Great performance and very versatile: works fantastic for gaming (at 1440p) and great performance in productivity, too (3D rendering and CAD). Perfect for a hobbyist workstation, where you want workstation performance without the price tag.


December 2018

amazing CPU works perfect with this setup.


October 2018

Best value performance CPU on the market there maybe some faster CPU's out there; value for money this is the processor to pick. It is great for gaming and as a workstation processor.


October 2018

I'm pleased with this CPU. It's got plenty of power for handling a variety of intensive tasks, from gaming to programming.


October 2018

It simply works what ever i throw at it and if using the wraith cooler that comes with it. I simply set that at 40% content speed for good quiet cooling.


October 2018

Great processor from Amd best connection quality performance price

mike roddis

October 2018
