8Pack Says

I recommend using 3200MHz or 3600MHz 8Pack edition team group 16GB memory kits with Ryzen. I’ve tested this in both X470 and X570 platforms and both show excellent results with tight CAS timings. All my 8Pack memory is guaranteed screened Samsung B-Die. The OCUK Product codes are MY-08L-TG & MY-08Q-TG.

Mid range chip at a budget price

I just used 3600x in my first build paired with a 2070 super and 3600mhz ram. For a mid range rig for gaming this gives great performance its definitely the sweeeet spot.

It is a bargain for £189. So much performance. I got one for a SFF with a B450 ITX and was very impressed. So I bought another with a X570 and a larger cooler as a temporary (will probably get the 4th gen 16 core eventually as the AM4 mobo supports it) upgrade for a quad core and an octacore computers. The performance of the 3600 is fantastic, it blows away my previous cpu's. Turn times for total war: Warhammer 1 & 2 have been greatly reduced - they just fly.

The best bang for buck

Upgrading from a intel 2600k to this has made my pc experience so much better, the old workhorse was bottlenecking and it was giving me the hump so I decided to jump on the ryzen bandwagon and I'm so happy. This is a great cpu, bf5 runs super smooth now, playing at 144hz at 2k is a dream. Gta 5 no problems what so ever!. I have my old trusty gtx 1070 pushing the pixels and its not being held back by that superb 2600k, the ole girl was showing its age running bf5. Now I can have a good ole session on the pc without getting the pox. Well done AMD for delivering a cpu for under 200 poshies that goes to to toe with the closest intel offering that is almost double the price.

Ryzen 5 3600. What an excelent cpu chip

Runs like the wind. Runs great on an Asus B350 prime with bios 5007. 14 percent increase over Ryzen 1800x
