Copped a wicked cheap 5 5600 off Amazon in Dec (only $118 !?!?!) shipping said Jan-Feb, but it actually arrived before Xmas.
Figured it would be a good upgrade for my gaming rig (5 3600) and I can hand the 3600 down to my youngest son to replace his 5 1600.
Gaming Rig specs:
MB- ASROCK X570 Phantom Gaming - BIOS 4.10
PS- Thermaltake Smart 600W
CPU- Ryzen 5 5600
Memory- Samsung B-die DDR4 3200
GPU- GTX 1080 TI (Sorry AMD, this unicorn is STILL an FPS beast, and to upgrade would cost over 500)
Overclocked CPU 4700 1.2V Benches:
If you want absolutely the best bang for the buck gaming CPU- the 5 5600 rocks. (the single-thread performance is sick)
If you want to overclock go for the 5600X as they are the best of the BIN, and your chance of winning the silicon lottery is all but guaranteed.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Team RED!
