Description

Ryzen 5 1600 Before I had an intel i5-4690k @ 4.7GHz but even tho it is a very good cpu, having only four cores/four treads in 2017 was not a great experience for me. The i5 4690k is starting to struggle (even after a massive overclock) to play some games like Battlefield 1 or other cpu-intensive game. I do a lot of stuff on my PC at once and that is the reason why RYZEN was a good choice for me.

I needed more than 4 cores/4 treads and not too expensive. Ryzen 1600 was the perfect cpu for me.

When I will receive my AM4 bracket to mount the cooler, I will overclock the cpu to reach at least 4GHz.

The Motherboard is very nice, the price is not too high and it has all the features I need.

I have to admit, I choose Corsair Vengeance LED ram only because it is sexy. And I don't regret it !

The R9 390 although it is very hot and power hungry, it's still a very good gpu for 1080p in 2017.

Great build. You may actually notice a slight drop in game FSP, but in terms of multi core processes this thing is a beast. Gaming plus other tasks should be easy, unlike the i5.

I'd highly recommend an ssd though. biggest bottle neck

Love the case! But I hope you bought a cheaper case for an SSD storage though(if you were on a budget, you can squeeze it in your parts list). But overall, it's a nice build!

Was it worth upgrading form an i5 to ryzen?
