    "The AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor is one of the best if you're a software developer. It can handle most anything you throw at it. It's much cheaper than it's Intel counterpart, but just as reliable. I recommend the Ryzen for anyone who needs a processor for software development."

    "While not as good as some, the AMD Ryzen 5 will give you the ability to be a pro when you game. It has AMD SenseMI Technology, and it's unlocked for overclocking. This is for those serious gamers."

    "A decent processor at a decent price. Its certainly good enough for a budget PC build but I think its worth the few dollars more to go with a quality Intel chip from the Coffee Lake series. The AMD processors also tend to have issues with a lot of RAM out there often only working with the more expensive RAM with better latency and with RAM prices being what they are these days you end up paying just as much if you would have gotten a good Intel CPU with less expensive RAM. "

    "Again, I completely love amazon's products and tend to find the best deal on their website. This processor may not necessarily be the best CPU for gaming. Considering the price it is probably a basic quality CPU not so much the BEST. I think the description of the processor is very clean and to the point. I would have expected the solution product to be in a higher price range with better processing speed and cores. "

    "I prefer Intel, because there are some compatibility issues with AMD. It's still a fast processor though. "

    "I have to do a ton of HD video editing at home. While I was building my computer for it, I needed the best processor that could handle the load. The AMD Ryzen 5 1600 was perfect for the job, and I've had zero problems with it. "

    "Quality budget processor in this budget range. One of the best I've seen. The only downside I noticed is that it requires a lot of memory. Make sure you buy good RAM sticks in order to get the best performance out of this processor."

Much to my surprise the AMD Ryzen processor with Sraith Spire Cooler goes far beyond what one would expect, especially in light of it's tremendously, surprising low cost."

    "A fairly good CPU, but if you don't mind paying a little bit more, then the AMD Ryzen 7 is better. On the other hand, this one is almost as good, and considerably cheaper. If you want to build a gaming rig, this is definitely something you should look at."

    "Easy to install. This processor can take on whatever I throw at it, whether at stock or overclock, and still has cool temperatures and nearly always runs idle even when under heavy load. This processor is best suited for multi-tasking and programs that can take advantage of its many cores."

    "Has frequency of almost 3.7 GHz Precision Boost, 6 Cores/12 Threads making it fast. Unclocked Cache: 4 MB/16. The Wraith spire cooler works well when handling 3 monitors. Needs additional cooling capacity if overclocked more than 60 Celcius."

    "Solid piece of hardware. One piece of advice, ive seen a lot of people saying the stock fan is difficult to mount. It is, until you realise the backplate fell off and that's why you've been swearing to yourself for the past thirty minutes, questioning your own sanity, aptitude and the very meaning of existence whilst trying your best not to smash this thing into a thousand little pieces in front of your girlfriend because she saw the receipt and would definitely not approve of destroying an item tagged at this price the day if arrives.... Otherwise this thing is great!"
