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

Kick ass CPU for the price. Pair it up with a Tomahawk max and you're set

Ends up being £167 with delivery which is better than Uk amazon
If you have free delivery with Scan, this is pretty hot... Starting to be really tempted myself!
Cheapest place for a B450 Tomahawk Max is Amazon or AWD-IT for a sliver under £95.

The CPU is now £159.99 on Amazon too: hotukdeals.com/dea…157 and I recently spotted a Asrock B450 Pro4 ATX for under £70 or ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING ATX for £81 although I do think the B450 Tomahawk Max is one of the best B450 boards

Ouch, nice!
The Tomahawk is supposed to be very good in terms of stability, power delivery etc, which may well be worth the extra £15-£25. I would be using my existing Noctua NH-D15 (with the required AM4 bracket), so I would lean towards the better motherboard so that the CPU can do its thing and clock as high as it can, without any manual tuning. Gotta love the way these things clock themselves up when they can...
Still haven't decided

I have the Tomahawk Max and would reccomend 100%, some stats.. userbenchmark.com/Use…848
Edited by: "DealsDen101" 30th Jan
Can anyone recommend me a really quiet Cooler for this CPU, the stock one is insanely loud from the looks of it
Yeah, I've heard the stock fan can get loud also - will see how it goes...

Apparently you can change settings don't quote me but I've heard the default is on highest performance. I've just received my parts:

- Ryzen 2700x (w/ Wraith Prism)
- Tomahawk Max Mobo
- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6GB Boost Graphics

Just waiting on the PSU, RAM, Game Eclipse Max RGB Fans and SSD to arrive tomorrow.

Hoping to have all set up Saturday evening!

I'm hoping the 3700x drops to current 2700x prices next year 😃
Might even stretch to a 3800x if they come down a lot.
Ahhh.. I want the 3400g to go sub £100 can't justify this and a graphics card tbh :/
Just waiting on a decently cheap mitx board pre-flashed for these CPU's.

I looked at that MSI board but I prefer the feature set of the Mortar Max, so that's what I'm using. I also use POP_OS 19.10 which if you haven't used it, makes Windows 10 look ridiculous and ancient. I did have a go on Peppermint OS but nah I'm back with POP because it is amazing. It uses 1GB-2GB RAM with a fully themed GNOME desktop, and browser open with a few tabs and Windows 10 is using 3.2GB just after booting up without even loading a browser. I have zero reason to use Windows 10, this even does DX12 gaming and it's free. It's based on Ubuntu 19.10. Honestly Windows is completely backwards hillbilly computing compared to this OS.

If you're on Windows 10 now or Windows 7 then install Virtual Box which is free, get Rufus 3.8, download POP_OS 19.10 (Intel/AMD version as you're using a Virtual Machine), write it to a USB with Rufus and then run POP_OS on Virtual Box, don't need to install it, just try it out live from the ISO and have a go. Make sure you give Virtual Box a few cores and 3GB RAM for the POP_OS. Once you're au fait with Linux there's no going back to Windows.

Or even better just install POP_OS native and say Goodbye to the dud that is Windows 10.
Tomahawk Max versus Mortar Max >

linustechtips.com/mai…ax/

"They're pretty much identical. You loose one pcie slot that you wont need anyway with the mortar, and a couple less fan headers and sata ports that you probably won't ever use. The tomahawk has a very slightly better VRM, but you probably won't notice the difference, both are pretty good.

The mortar actually has better i/o and an extra M.2 slot.

I usually recommend the mortar as it is cheaper and lets you have a smaller system without sacrificing anything important. "

I bought the Mortar Max myself as the extra M.2 is handy and the USB 3 feature set is better and you also have a built in optical output instead of needing an optional header.

So my vote is Mortar Max over the Tomahawk Max. Got one, it works, does the job lovely.

But are these boards compatible with the 3600 without having to flash the bios first with another AMD cpu?

I know the Mortar Max definitely is.
Seems the Msi range have most support for USB flashback. Found a useful link for them.

Unfortunately I'm after a Mini ITX board. Just can't find one.

Not if you use a "MAX" board (e.g. the infamous Tomahawk discussed above). Ready to go. Even if it's not a MAX, make sure you can flash via USB without a processor, a lot of boards support this.
