The New AMD 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU LineupThe new AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs have arrived boasting higher performance gains over its predecessor lineup. With higher speeds, more memory and wider bandwidth the new Ryzen CPUs look to improve on and upgrade the way you relax, work and play. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor includes 6 CPU Cores with 12 threads and a base clock of 3.6GHz that can be boosted to 4.2GHz. The new CPU's are backwards compatible with older motherboards thanks to the same AM4 slot socket however with the newly released chipset of X570 motherboards you can maximize the power the Ryzen CPUs have to offer. Support for DDR4 Memory continues but with the new Ryzen CPUs comes the new PCIe 4.0 Version which has improved the speeds of which your PCIe components such as graphics cards and some storage solutions communicate with the motherboard. Blur the line between elite gaming performance and workstation-class content creation with the most advanced desktop processors in the world.

Clock: 3.6GHz, Boost 4.2GHz | Six Core, 12 Threads | Cache: 32MB

Ok this is the best value gaming CPU on the UK market right now, imho. 2700 for £129 preferable for content creation though. Wish there were some more decent motherboard deals!

Seems like b450 MB prices are not shifting at the moment, I have had my eye on them for a while.

Amazon. I had purchased one earlier in the week that arrived damaged, which I am in the process of returning right now. So I purchased the replacement for 172.98 which arrived this afternoon.

What a pain, may be worth getting on chat to them and tell them how much an inconvenience you had sending the damaged board back and waiting for a new one just for them to drop the price again, they seem to bend over backwards for prime members so they may refund you the difference

That's really poor service and very convoluted from them... I'd maybe try going through the chat again and see if you can find someone a bit more helpful.

How on earth did you struggle with it. It was no hassle for me on my 1700 or 2600.
Very nice. Hopefully stays this price!

I think these are due to drop even further soon, I hope anyway because I want one
Asus a320m gaming.
If you buy it from scan. They will update the bios for you. If you ask. They sell the asus motherboard with ryzen 3600 and 16gb ram for £320.
Ordered, thanks Op!
Also thinking of getting the Asus TUF wifi x570 board with this, anyone else got that or another x570 board?

I paid £175 a few weeks ago, still an excellent CPU so I wouldn't worry about it. This is the problem with the component market, prices will almost always strictly go down so no matter when you buy it will always be the wrong time.
Typical. I ordered this processor just this afternoon, but only just saw an email telling me the price has dropped £13 since!

Ensue hurried visit to Amazon to cancel the order and order again at the lower price. I could probably have contacted their customer service too to see if they'd just drop the price down, but thought about that afterwards ...

Dunno.
I turned the screws one at a time diagonally like shown in many videos.
One screw wasn't reaching.
It wasn't hard but I had to put a bit of pressure on the fan and thought I might snap something.
My M9i went on much easier.
Literally building a pc with a 3600 in it. Paid £170 from Amazon a few days ago. Anyone know if I could just order this one at a lower price and then return it against the higher price from a few days ago?

I bought a Ryzen 5 3600 for £170 on Saturday and got it delivered Sunday. Annoying about the price drop but I'm not pulling the PC apart so I can send back the CPU for the sake of £10.02. I doubt they'd take it back anyway. That's just how it goes. Amazon used to refund price difference but they don't anymore.

It's a great CPU. I'm not taxing mine at all at the moment. Whilst writing this and looking in HTOP my RAM usage is only 1.29GB Windows 10 would be using 8GB by now.

I have opened it, started building the machine last night. Was wondering if I could order a second 3600 but return it as if it's the 1st one. Might be a bit of a pain for the sake of £10

Thanks for this Jesus the CPU is only like 7 years old and still does pretty much everything I need it to but I feel I can't say no to the extra power for the price
Seems like the best value all round CPU right now unless you require integrated graphics.

Don't beat yourself up over a ten quid price drop.
When you look at the total cost of a PC that's loose change.
Still great value at what you paid so forget about it.
