    No issues so far. I haven't overclocked yet but will do in the future.

    Haven't had any problems with this. Amazing CPU. I almost went with the 1700, but I don't know how to overclock yet, so I got the 1600x. Once I learn how to OC, I will definitely do it.

    This seems to be a Golden chip. Got it running at 4.1ghz with no problems and only a slight increase on the voltage.

    Cinebench got the following results:

    Regular Score: 1370 Single Core: 168

    Not much to say that's not already been said by everyone else. For the money, this chip (and its non-X brother) are great value and a sweet spot in the latest AMD lineup. Got mine running at 3.9mhz all day with no issues in my mITX B350-I Strix build.

    Chose this over a comparable Intel i5 because I had hopes of streaming someday, I like multitasking, and as an engineering student, the multi threaded performance can come in handy for simulations.

    I haven't been able to push my chip past 3.8GHz without getting random crashes here and there while gaming. I suppose I just lost the lottery? At 3.8GHz, though, the chip is stable, runs fairly cool as far as I know, and does everything I need it to flawlessly.

    I’ve been following the news about AMD shaking up the CPU comeback with Ryzen, and decided to go with the Ryzen 5 1600X (no Wraith cooler so I can add a 280mm Rad).

    AMD's back, and they're cooler than ever. Got it running at 4GHz at stock voltage.

    Upgraded from intel i3-6300, so its a huge improvement in the performance. I couldnt ask for more as Im just using it purely on gaming.

    So far, this performs amazingly well. Not even overclocked and I am getting a 1200 in Cinebench. The one thing that is really important to note is that it reports 20 degrees C higher than it actually is! source: https://community.amd.com/community/gaming/blog/2017/03/13/amd-ryzen-community-update

    A great 6 core CPU, handles multitasking exceptionally. I'm yet to find a game that could really challenge it. (And I'm playing everything with ultra settings, 1080p 60 fps).

    I was skeptical at first about Ryzen, but I managed to buy this one for around 170$ which is a great deal for a 6 core processor with 12 threads.
