AMD Ryzen 5 3600X Review
0 standard. The Intel competition currently lacks this last feature, and combined with multithreading support, it firmly tips the scales in the Ryzen 5 3600X's favor, at least in the eyes of the future-proofing enthusiast. The six-core AMD Ryzen 5 3600X is an excellent mainstream CPU, offering proficient performance, multithreading, and overclockability

I am looking to upgrade my Ryzen 5 3600x to something that will better suit my daily workflow and gaming. I use multiple resource-heavy programs all day including Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, Vegas PRO, and SketchUp with V-Ray for rendering and many times I am using two or more of these programs simultaneously. The 3600X has been an absolute beast, however hitches begin to show as I open more and more processes. I am looking to upgrade to one of the following CPUs: 3700x, 3900x, 5600x, 5800x.

Finished my 1st custom loop. Had to design and 3D print a handful of brackets/mounts to make sure everything fit well enough.
It looks cooler. I think that should be enough reasoning. Anyways, specs are:. Ryzen 5 3600x...Hydra Mini...Gigabyte 1650 Super...Barrow Water Block Combo...Barracuda 1TB HDD...Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB SSD...Asrock B550 ITX/ac...Corsair SF600 Gold...CableMod Cables...EKWB 120mm Radiator...Corsair Vengeance 16GB...
Exactly what was ordered.
I knew this was going to arrive with some bent pins but $150 for this processor was too good to pass. 45 minutes and a very fine sewing needle did the trick. I am reviewing this on the computer I installed the CPU ob. Great transaction and great value. Thanks.

Worth upgrading from i5 6600k to Ryzen 5 3600x?
As someone who actually upgraded from an i5 6600k to a Ryzen 5 3600x also with the intent of emulating using RPCS3 as well as some other games: yes it's worth it. RPCS3 absolutely loved the new CPU, giving me near perfect performance in games where I would get \~20fps with a lot of stuttering beforehand.
