Although I'm not really gonna laugh my way to the bank, because it took more than 7 months to reach this low, and my friends had gotten theirs for a slightly higher price back then.

In games, at 1440p, I'm often GPU limited so there's no a huge bump in fps for the new CPU, and I don't expect the 5600X to be be the limiting factor in gaming for me for a long time.
So why four and not five stars? Price, and I mean MSRP, not the £400 these can appear at right now (Jan 21). Even at £280, this is quite a bit more than the 3600 or i5 10600KF (which are about £180 and £225 respectively right now). If you're only gaming, and don't have a top end GPU, the 3600 or 10600KF would likely perform as well. If you're using your PC for other things (coding, content creation etc), then the 5600X might well be worth it, but I really wouldn't pay more than £300.
The ONLY problem I have with this is the price. It's being horribly scalped everywhere for up to £100+. AMD have released statements saying more will be released late-March (which also coincides with PS5, meaning their mutual development company is ramping up production) so if you CAN wait, please wait until March/April time onwards.
This is definitely the CPU to get (for primarily gaming) to last the next 3 years or so. I wouldn't buy the first generation of AM5 in 2022, as usually early adopters are plagued with RAM and Motherboard related issues.
Five Stars. Once availability is ironed out, you won't regret buying one.
One thing to note is that this is still very new hardware so many motherboards will require a USB bios update for this to work. My MSI B550 had me worried that the CPU didn't work for about half an hour but a quick download to a usb stick, plugging it in and pressing a button on the motherboard solved the whole issue.
