Does this come with a heatsink?
Worth swapping out a r5 2600 on a tomahawk b450 board ?

For gaming? I wouldn't say so, go for a GPU upgrade instead if you dont already have a decent card. For applications that specifically benefit from an increase in core count? Sure!

as the above have said, if the cores count for the applications u use, if not the 3600 would be a better benefit for gaming, im curious what gpu u got?

Comes with the best amd heatsink, better than the one on the 3700x, and absolutely destroys the wraith stealth on the 3600.
The wraith prism from last gen is superb, built by cooler master, looks awesome, sells on ebay for £20/25 for a reason.

That said it no longer comes with a bundled game like last month. It's a real tie up between this and a 3600. I'd probs still go for the 2700x, extra cores and the nicer cooler.

I'm not a heavy user, I have a Ryzen 5.
I do some video editing for family GoPro videos, and MKV movie conversions.... just wondering if this will offer much more than what I have?

I was under the impression 2700X 3700X stock coolers are identical. What's better about the former?

IF the video software you use scales to more cores, pretty much anything you do with it - particularly encoding to exported formats - will happen faster and smoother. But I would only invest if you feel what you currently have is not enough. Investing in more storage space for a scratch drive or archiving might be a better idea if not, and your use case is - honestly - comparatively simple.

TL;DR - Do you get bored watching the export / encoding of your completed videos take ages? Get a better CPU. If not, maybe consider more storage for archiving the video instead.

I went from a wraith prism which ran at 79-81c while gaming to a ARCTIC Freezer 34 eSports DUO which runs at 65c. The wraith prism looks nice but way too toasty for my liking.

Yup, was thinking my R9 280X is getting on a bit so I have £220 ISH to upgrade GPU. Any thoughts?.

Which one though?


Ryzen 5, 1600, 3.2ghz
Yes sorry, must be other versions....

It would be a decent upgrade for encoding. Yes there's 1600, 2600, 3600.

Thank you. Will take a look then.
Just ordered 32gb ram over current 8gb ram, so anything that helps time wise is a bonus!

32GB is good too
Hopefully it's the E-Die ballistix memory.

I suppose I've got used to the time things take. I've just ordered more ram, 8gb to 32gb, but now I've seen this offer then I think why not upgrade at the same time!

Appreciate the reply

No probs. Between both the RAM and - particularly - the CPU upgrade, if your video editing software is recent and decent, you'll notice a difference. Enjoy the upgrade! I'm super tempted to plump for this myself...

Personally, I went for a used RX480 for the time being and waiting on either the RTX 3000 series or will get the 2080ti once I save up. What monitor are you running? I only have a 1080p at the moment and the RX480 seems to be doing a fine job especially for £85!
1080p monitor as well, but didn't think at all about the possibility of upgrading the monitor as it is as old as the R9. Thanks for throwing in an other element to the mix.😥
