    from completed build Metal tool case computer

    Excellent chip for the price.

    • Outperforms Intel's Kaby Lake offering at this pricepoint (i5 7500: similar single-core performance when OC, 40% faster multi-threaded performance even at stock settings).

    • For about 20€ / 20$ more than a 1400, it has better binning (never seen a 1400 reach 4GHz), double the cache, and a cooler with enough thermal headroom for a 4GHz overclock. Mine overclocks to 3.8GHz with a mere +0.012V offset, and stays remarkably cool (mid 70s under long-term heavy load with tool case lid open).

    powerful with a low wattage and nice low temps. Great mid-low range chip if your on a budget on want to stay small and quiet.

    from completed build Raijintek Styx + Ryzen

    Eight threads for approximately $250 Canadian is hard to match. It's plenty fast for my needs so I haven't boosted it, though AMD's software looks great.

    The only issue I ran into was temperature. With the stock cooler the 1500x would idle at around 50, and it would soar past 70 under load. Too hot.

    I adjusted fan curves and now it sits cool and pretty quiet at roughly 40 when idling, and never goes above 65 under load. That's still hot, but I suspect it's the limited airflow in the Styx case more than anything. Anyway, an AIO cooler is on the wish list.

    Great chip and great value! Havent had any problems so far, and people are saying OC'ing is a bliss with this one.

    from completed build My Brother's Ryzen up

    This CPU is great, it powers through gaming, comes with a really nice stock cooler and overclocked very well (3.9GHz at 1.325V)

    from completed build Project Ryzen: Slikh 3.8

    Overclocked to 3.8ghz with no problems and I'm also amazed with the stock coolers performance!

    from completed build ROOKIE

    CPU is great but as a first time pc builder I messed up installing the cooler. I removed it multiple times and noticed that a very small amount of the thermal paste went over the side of the CPU. As such the initial idle temps were a bit high sitting near the high 40/ low 50's. I just set it to a more aggressive fan curve, it's now at low to mid high 30's and the cooler is still nice and silent. But it was my fault and not the part's.

    from completed build My first pc build (Ryzen 5)

    This CPU is amazing, and even with it's core clock of 3.5 GHz, it runs wonderfully. I haven't yet attempted an overclock with the stock cooler, but that's on my list of things to do.

    from completed build Mister Mojo Ryzen

    A solid CPU, suitable for nearly all occasions. Can be overclocked for the games or content creators. Run stock to keep the temps down, and fans quiet, while still delivering solid performance for more pedestrian uses.
