Picked one up yesterday, just waiting for it to be delivered tomorrow!
Hot hot hot! Just like AMD cpus.
Strongly recommended as best value mid-range gaming CPU by tomshardware.

Ryzen 5 1600 fills the pricing gap between Core i5-7500 and -7600K. Factoring in the unlocked ratio multiplier and beefy stock cooler, it's the best mid-range value choice. If you have the cash, we recommend stepping up to the Ryzen 5 1600 over Intel's Core i5-7500. At stock settings, it's also very close to the Core i5-7600K in newer games.


Will overclock almost as well as the 1600X based on (admittedly anecdotal) evidence. Also worth noting that this CPU includes its own heatsink/fan, which is a pretty decent cooler compared with other stock coolers. This is my favourite CPU out of the Ryzen line-up!

However, any gamers who don't desperately ******* need a CPU TODAY should definitely wait 16 more days to see what Coffee Lake brings.
Currently looking to upgrade (see here hotukdeals.com/dis…661) was looking at intel but would this fit the bill? If so can anyone recommend a motherboard to go with it?

How much do you wanna spend on a motherboard?


As always as little as possible but say £100 max.
Heated good price. I don't need to upgrade yet for a bit but might be looking to do so next year funds permitting. Think I would look at the big brother to this the 1700 (and 1800) for the extra cores and hopefully by the time I come to upgrade the 1700 at least might be dropping into the £200 region, well I can wish at least! With PC component prices lately they will probably still be exactly the same price....

I'd recommend the Gigabyte Gaming 3 b350, prob the best under 100
I bought mine with an Asus B350 prime - there's a promotion on at the moment (possibly not from Amazon though) asus-promotion.eu/am4…tml
It's good to have AMD back, Intel have had it easy for a little too long. Some healthy competition can only be a good thing for us here.

Oh you're sooooo funny.
Do you want to go even further back in AMD's history?
To a time when AMD made better Intel processors than Intel did.

Personally given the mess that intel motherboards are in with one nearly coming out every 3 quarters i'd just avoid intel like the plague

forget coffee lake, ice lake and poo lake ..

oh and the six billion mother boards that you'd need to buy if you needed to upgrade the cpu..

[sarcasm muchie but its on point]
ahh the tech clan fans boys are even here on hotukdeals...

You would have been on point just a couple of short decades ago, but considering how CPUs have plateaued over the last decade, simply buy a decent one and it should last you 5+ years anyway.

Although to be fair, at the time I bought it I was rubbing my hands with glee at the fact my Z68 would support the upcoming Ivy Bridge!

Just to re-emphasise, that's the Gigabyte Gaming 3 B350 (as there's also a Gigabyte Gaming B350!)

Possibly just a free 'pack' for the game.
Hot, if I was buying a pc would buy this cpu
Great chip. Currently running in my new build. With latest bios you can run ram at least 3200 speed ddr4 at it's proper speeds. Cheaper than what I paid. Albeit pound has recovered greatly in last week or so against dollar.
Overclocked mine to 3.8Ghz with 1.275v, 30c idle and 70c during burn test with the stock cooler. Might try more when i stick the hyper212 on it.
MSI b350 mortar/16gb

One thing i dont like about this platform is the long boot times. But that is what sleep is for.

Edit to add:

Another bonus is i'll probably get my money back selling my 2500k+asus p8z77deluxe...when a fee deal pops up on the eeebay.

Everything I've read seems to suggest you should be getting at least 3000 Mhz RAM to go with Ryzen.
hip hip hurray for AMD.. something back in my mind still supports AMD
wish Ryzen will start the price war and reduce the price of computers.

Cannon lake delayed to the end of 2018 .. sorry i'm on point!

Cannon lake delayed to the end of 2018 .. sorry i'm on point!


I'm sorry, I'm not sure of the relevance..? Doesn't it weaken your cut-off-your-nose-to-spite-your-face argument against buying Intel because of the short motherboard compatibility lifespans, as delaying Cannonlake will lengthen Coffee Lake's market relevance? You just complained about new chips coming out every three quarters... why are you now complaining that it's longer?

Or are you conflating Coffee Lake and Cannonlake?
Edited by: "BetaRomeo" 20th Sep 2017
Yeah Intel's 8th Generation is out soon. October? That will be bring 6 cores to the mainstream. They are still 10% faster than AMD core fore core. AMD offer value at present. I agree about their constant release or new motherboards and chipsets.

Cannonlake will go to mobile platform first. Probably same time AMD release their Ravenridge cards at start of 2018.

Boot time isn't that bad on Ryzen. Mine takes about 5-6 seconds. Are you using an SSD for Windows? Faster memory might help too. I used 3200hz. ddr4.

I've got one of these recently and its quiet around 30c, but when it gets up to 40c (Basic tasks running) the Spire cooler purrs a bit louder for a minute or so, not too loud, just a little annoying in a quiet room. Is this normal with anyone else?

That promotion is if you buy a system build PC with those components. If you're just buying an Asus X370 / B350 motherboard with a 1700X or 1800X you can receive Everspace and 2 free games >> asus-promotion.eu/am4…tml

I could use my 'Tears' to cool your Intel CPU if you'd like, though no tears available. My Ryzen 1700 is just fine.
