As much as I considered a Ryzen 7, much like the i7, I didn't see how the extra cash was going to put me that much further ahead. The Ryzen 5 2600x comes with a stock heatsink cooler and comes unlocked so there is plenty of overclocking potential available. I paired this with an X470 Gigabyte mobo GIGABYTE X470 AORUS GAMING 5 WIFI (AMD Ryzen AM4/ X470/ USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A, Type C/ ATX/ DDR4/ Intel Wave 2 WIFI/ M.2/ HDMI/ Motherboard) and a GTX 1060 video card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Windforce OC 3GB GDDR5 Graphics Card (GV-N1060WF2OC-3GD)
Using the stock heat sink and a very basic boost profile, I run all day at 4.2 ghz with no heat issues. The only other cooling I have are some supplemental silent coolermaster case fans. There are many reviews out there on how solid these OEM Spire heatsinks are and I have to agree. I don't game for hours on end and primarily, I have Photoshop and Illustrator open while streaming videos or Pandora. This chip breezes through everything I throw at it and I have never seen temperatures come close to making me slow down. I have even seen where one person had this very chip running at 6 ghz with a custom liquid cooler and has reported no stability or extreme temperatures.
In conclusion, for what I'm doing, I'm so glad I saved the couple hundred bucks over a Ryzen 7 and instead put that into other areas, like a NVME M.2 SSD, which if you don't have, you should really put into your next build as well. Overclocking is simple, drivers and optimizing programs are easy to use and no need for expensive cooling setups since this chip is paired with a brilliant OEM cooler. I hope you found my review helpful and if so, please click the yes button below. Thanks!
I have a pretty good CPU and NOCTUA DH-15S cooler, so it auto dynamic clocks (what AMD calls XFR2) to 4.9 GHz on all cores! I don't do a thing, as it is all stock. Even the fans are cool-and-quiet and ramp based on temps. This is a great PC! The ASRock X470 is great, too, with that 1 GB ADATA NVMe SSD drive blazing along with W10 pro. The memory XMP profiled to the right timings and speed straight away with the Taichi MB...dead stable.
The Heaven 4.0 scores are 15 FPS faster than the i7-870 in the old system with the same 1070ti clocks (see attached). That AMD CPU kicks butt for the price. If you are thinking of a PC, the 2600X allows you to afford the a NVMe drive and/or a faster graphics card. I game at 1440P so the fastest CPU is a waste of money.
Ran Wolfenstein - The New Order all day today and not a single hick-up. The system exceeded my expectations, that's for sure.

Here is the data on XFR2 actual function.
Look at the dynamic OC difference! ~4.3 GHz on one and ~4.9 GHz on the other! VCPU core adjust from less than a volt to 1.48 volts.
Remember that the numbers are "max" at any time, not at one point in time. So ALL cores aren't likely ever at those frequencies at the same time, just the ones that are needing the boost. Unlike a manual over clock, you aren't stuck revving the CPU engine in neutral wasting power on cores that don't have work, and, generating HEAT that slows down the thread you DO want to be running hardest!
This is why the AMD set-up is so compelling now, It allows every last bit of performance to be reached with minimal HEAT generation as ONLY the cores / clocks that NEED the boost get it. Eventually, they all seem to see a set peak GHz value (I don't think my 2600X can run 4.93 GHz on all cores simultaneously) running randomly at full tilt.
If you look at the CPU and GPU utilization scores you'll see dramatic differences between games. One runs the CPU hard, the other the GPU.
The CPU processor adjust to fit the requirements. And, it adjusts a LOT more than I ever though it would. With fixed over clock you really match ONE type of game and spin your wheels on the other. XFR2 senses the wheel spin on the CPU and backs it off if it can't drive performance forward on everything you do. And yes, it backs off the CPU voltage on that core, you can watch it dynamically change on each core. This lowers overall heats to the minimum at any point in time for the work being done.
I sound like an add for AMD's XFR2, but I'm just the opposite, I was real nervous about the expense on a seemingly too good to be true dynamic OC program. But, it really does work and the data supports it 100% using real games and actual use situations. This CPU is 3.6 GHz base clock, but dynamically OC to near 5 GHz! And, this was gaming for 12 hours straight on Wolfenstein with ZERO crashes. Someone has to do this test, may as well be me. This PC is dead stable hitting those numbers. If you don't believe the AMD propaganda, it is true this time around.
Let's add the second important variable, cooling. The AMD Cool and Quiet was panned in the beginning. Now, it supercharges the XFR2 capability as it cools ONLY when needed. The old way was top blow the house down 24/7. Now? I hear the fans spin up in game and then spin down again. The cooling is DYNAMIC as well, so less noise most of the time. The X470 Taichi MB chip set tested my fans min speeds at initialization so it knows their limits and away it went after that. Both systems work seamlessly on my PC. Seldom does this ever happen. I didn't mess with a thing, no CPU overclocks, no fan profiles, nothing. I see completely reasonable heats, too.
The 2600X is definitely the little engine that could, and DOES! Or should I say, AMD DOES!
