Cons... Cooler hasn't got LED's...
Onto the longer review.
The CPU comes very well presented in its classy looking box (honestly it's something you'll want to display) and comes with a very good stock cooler that is more than adequate and looks sleek and stylish.
It's very important that you install the drivers from the AMD website for the CPU otherwise it will keep crashing and blue screening. Also the chip I got wasn't able to overclock past 4GHz on my Gigabyte AB350 gaming 3 motherboard (combination of silicone lottery and weaker power phase system on the mobo) so you mileage may vary.
Performance though, once you've ironed out some of the kinks, is so so smooth. I upgraded from my 6600k and I'm so pleased I did. Considering the prevailing opinion is that i5's smash gaming I've found the Ryzen chip just seems to run everything better. You'll be surprised how many games leverage multithreading and going back to games like Dragon Age Inquisition I get butter smooth gameplay and the same applies to newer titles like Assassin's Creed Origins and Destiny 2.
Games are moving more and more toward multithreading so these CPUs are definitely a great upgrade path.
The AMD Ryzen master software is excellent and very user friendly. It allows you to overclock without having to go into the bios or have any in depth techie knowledge.
If you'd asked me a few years ago if I'd consider an AMD CPU I would've rolled my eyes but AMD have played a blinder with this line of products and now I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ryzen as a high quality product worthy of very high praise.
It also stays very cool with my AIO and plays surprisingly well with my GTX 1080. it feeds it to around 99% so there's no bottlnecking.
Buy one of these CPUs and you'll be very satisfied.
This CPU is one of the best bang for buck Ryzen chips available now, as the 6 cores (12 threads) give you more future proofing compared to the Ryzen 5 1400 which is only 4 (8 threads).
Although its not as fast as the latest Intel Coffeelake chips, the Ryzen is much better value for almost as good performance. The AM4 platform is also more future proof than Intel's which requires you to buy a new motherboard every time they announce a new CPU!
