It’s not like this is an Intel i9 that would get so hot that Nuclear Fusion is almost attainable.

Before integrated heat spreaders there was no ‘solder’ it was TIM directly on the due to heatsink plate.

Need a pc for work (I'm only answering emails/book keeping!) but would like to be able to upgrade later for gaming (when prices drop). Is this a good option for me? I haven't taken the plunge and bought any components yet so any recommended compatible parts would be helpful!


You can't go wrong with choosing AMD's AM4 platform, as AM4 motherboards (which are comparatively cheaper than Intel's) are compatible with this or any of AMD's Ryzen CPUs, including Ryzen+ 2000-series coming in April, and will last a gen even after that at least. So once you plumb for AM4, it's a question of whether you want to go super cheap but performant and then upgrade to a new CPU or GPU later with the 2200G, or spend quite a lot more money on a separate CPU (Ryzen 1600) along with a dGPU to go with it (cheaper options like RX 560 or GTX 1050 Ti) which have quite a bit more performance and will be ok to get by 1080p gaming at lower settings.
Surely anyone serious about playing 1080p games on high/ultra settings knows that a £89 APU isn't going to cut it. What does make sense is the AM4 motherboard taking all the ryzen 3,5 and 7 processors. So perhaps this would be a good stepping stone to building a lower end PC.

Gaming and this CPU do not make sense... unless you plan to play faster than light, dont say this is good for gaming, its not and never will be... the PS4 has more grunt and will be better for gaming.

What kind of cooling systems need to use for cold down the CPU, and the internal system case? and how much power for the power supply unit I need to use to support the whole system? and guys, how much Britsh Gas will charge you per hour?


TDP or Thermal Design Power is how much electricity it'll use, but rather how much heat it'll give off at its rated speed. If you overclock this then it will get even hotter.
For most people an air cooler such as the Hyper 212 will be sufficient, you could go All in One however just note that eventually they will fail and/or leak.
Use PCPartpicker to judge what kind of PSU you'll need - don't forget to add in the rest of your components. As a rule of thumb 500W should be ample unless you're going crazy with multi GPUs.

You can use the tried and trusted Hyper Evo 212 (20 quid) and keep the overclock light, or you can go with something like the Coolermaster MasterLiquid 240L (60 quid).

The PSU depends on other components, there are plenty of sites online that can help you determine that, I like uk.pcpartpicker.com Just fill in your components and check the power consumption.

Likely a 550w PSU will handle this CPU and a good GPU no issue.

British Gas currently charge anywhere from 12-20p per kWh.

A 95W rating, running at full load, will cost you slightly less than a 100W lightbulb.

So, 10 hours of full power use is 12-20p. The average power is much lower.

This isn't a good comparison at all, for many reasons.

'If you do anything apart from gaming' isn't even correct. If you do things that do great with many threads, this is a good chip.

But, this chip is not ideal for 99.9% of users. I think even bringing up comparisons may confuse people into thinking this is 'the best chip for me'.

There are far better options for generic, everyday, use.

Between the i7 8700k, the i5 8400 and the Ryzen 1700... There aren't too many other chips to really consider...

If you are on a sub 200 budget, the i3 8100 and the Ryzen 1200 can enter the discussion.

But this chip? It's crazy to even suggest it's 'good' for most people as the price is outlandish combined with the motherboard.

If you need 16 cores/ 32 threads you will KNOW you need it. This is a great value for someone who needs 32 threads. But if you are sitting there going 'do I need this' the answer is absolutely NO!
Good cpu, good price, strong release, but overpriced boards ruined it for me as did high end ryzen and z370, in order to get a half decent board that had what I needed it was over £200 even £300 and the threadripper boards £300-£400 na never gonna happen the board partners are on another planet and costing sales of cpu's, and they wonder why board sales are at new lows.
I wish I knew enough about computers to build one. I take it I’m gonna need to spend a lot more then just this

Oh, see, the whole 'next two processors' thing is not true. They said there wouldn't be a forced upgrade until 2020. That's code for 'We actually mean there will be a new socket that you need to take advantage of the new CPU, but you *could* stick this great new CPU in that old mobo'.

Also, stop with the '16 threads' it is 8 cores with 8 virtual threads. It takes 4 or 5 virtual threads to equal a single physical core in *perfect* situations (Encoding). In most situations, a virtual thread is near worthless. In gaming, AMD have seen negative performance from enabling virtual threads.

That said, this CPU is not a good purchase. The i5 8400k, the i5 8600k, and the i7 8700k are all better value propositions for various reasons. As you pointed out, the AMD 1700 is not a bad shout either.

Also, notice how you didn't mention Spectre? AMD is impacted by that too.

Prices for PC components are bonkers right now, especially overpriced …Prices for PC components are bonkers right now, especially overpriced Intel CPUs, so doesn't make any sense to build right now if you're not in dire need of something new. At least wait until March for Ryzen+ release.


Won’t the new Intel MBs and CPUs be coming out around the same time?

Problem with not buying now (which I can’t afford anyway) is how long until prices are going to ‘normalise’. Fingers crossed we’re not talking years

We should see prices lowering this year, as Samsung has increased capacity .. How much and how long is anyone's guess and other factors may cause the price to stay the same..

Looking at some of the amazon specials of late we should see them fall.

and then what can the 1600x be overclocked to??? More.


The 14nm lithography process that ryzen is produced on seems to hit a max of 4.2ghz (ish) regardless of the amount of cores

The ryzen 2 which is using 12nm lithography seems to be giving up to 200mhz uplift, so we could see overclocking to 4.4 to 4.5ghz.

Not really. This arch hits a wall at 4GHz. The variance a bit either side of this is just the usual luck of the draw whether it is the X versions or not.

I agree Ryzen are more reasonable BUT I would be looking for a trouble-free system, and AFAICT ryzen is still more troublesome re memory and other things.

My order from 1100am is still okay. Mine is for routine delivery for 5 days.
Now £151.14 at AriaPC. Cannot post the deal as t won't validate.
How low do you think the 1600 will go ahead of zen+ refresh? The zen+ update looks fairly incremental so if 1st gen R5 1600 drops much lower I’ll probably pounce for gen1 ryzen. Then upgrade to zen2/3/whatever is compatible with the same socket in the future...
Imo there will be dumping of old stick soon to get ready for Ryzen refresh..
RAM is the killer at the moment.

You are correct. The FX-8320 does bottleneck a GTX1060 3GB. Two of my friends own this combo and we tested in 5 games we play together. Best example: GW2, max settings, town area (a lot of players). FX-8320=20fps, and my i7-4790K=54fps. Same location in games, same settings, same gpu. You can't even call this cpu a gaming cpu.
