You can laugh all you want, but they’re right.

I bought a 3600 recently and it only gets 210fps average. Upgraded to a 10990XE and now I get 213fps average #worthit

Not worth it imo. You won't get much more performance difference than the 3600

Tbh - agreed. But if someone is specifically after the 3600X this is the cheapest I’ve seen it; so based purely on whether it’s a deal for this particular item it seemed fair to share it.
About 3~5% performance gain over normal r5 3600 for extra £40... I think not

The X series is generally better binned than the non-x, ideally for overclockers but for the normal people, not really that much worth it

That was the case with zen and zen+ CPU's but not with zen2. 3000 series doesn't overclock at all by my standards. All 3600 I had where able to OC to 3600x level, two out of three 3600x I had where able to give me extra 200mhz, last 3600x was golden sample going over 360mhz over stock but with zen2 I had much better performance boost from tweaking infinity fabric and memory settings then from higher clocks

And much higher peak power consumption too.

Yes that's true, to get that extra 300+ MHz my GS 3600x had to go all the way to its power limit.

Pity, could have used the Quidco 25% yesterday to get £50 back, making this £150, was going to do it today as the deal is back on but they've reduced the maximum to £10 now

I got my 3600x from Currie's for £180 around 6 months ago. Just saying prices fluctuate wildly these days.

What was you're all core overclock at? I have mine running at 4.25 all core at 1.28v

Makes me sad seeing so many mid to high end builds with the stock cooler all because of RGB.
What's with the really poor 3600 deals?

Unfortunately not available now. So this is probably the best current deal.

I bagged myself one from Amazon Germany for the same price as a 3600. If it wasn't at that price I'd have just stayed at the 3600 as, like others have said, there's not a massive amount of difference when it comes to gaming.

Xbox already use AMD Zen cores
Play Satation 5 - AMD Zen
Apple computers are already rumored to have code mentioning AMD Zen cores.

All above market leader take few years to research and develop the product, so best to do your own research before spreading false information.
What kind of motherboard would I need to buy for this, the cheapest kind without any thrills? How do I check, too, whether or not my current RAM is compatible?
The £40 extra for a 3600x vs 3600 isn't great value in terms of the increase in performance and the better box cooler.

However if you are building a more silent PC, the better binning of the 3600x should lead to lower power usage for the same performance, if you enjoying tweaking.

B450 is a good start. Any DDR4 DIMM should work.

The reviews say it all really. You're paying extra for an "X"
Which Intel chip is this comparable to?
There are deals on fleebay with board and ram around 325+

Depends on what you're doing, but generally the basic 3600 was equal to about a 9400f for older games. For newer games and especially workstation purposes, probably closer to a higher binned i5 for gaming and probably i7 minimum for workstations.

Talking purely 9th gen Intel here though.

Don't have a clue about 10th gen Intel chips as quite frankly it would be easier to cool a nuclear reactor.

R5 1600 still going strong, stable overclock at 3.9GHz


What voltages? I think I lost the lottery on this one, hit 3.8GHz at 1.332V and need stupid amount more voltage to increase clock
1.3625 , offset to 1.375. I could push higher but then the pc will crash eventually.

Been on this for hours per day for the last 2ish years, still works fine.
Worth it if you don't intend to buy your own third party cooler or don't want to. The one in the box is much better than the cooler provided with the Ryzen 3600. Still beaten out by most other coolers though.
