Pros and cons

According to our Processor expert

  • Due to the high 35 MB combined cache, your processor works very quickly.
  • With this cpu you get a Wraith Spire processor cooler included, without LED lighting.
  • The processor has no integrated gpu, so you need a separate video card.

  • 4 / 5 stars

    Cheap, Powerful and easy to install.

    • Fast
    • Easy to install
    • more economical than the intel i5
    • Requires less cooling than Intel i5
    • Price is very favorable for performance
    • No integrated GPU
    • Not ideal for many demanding games

    When installing it was a bit of a shock that the processor still works with the pin system, while I was used to the new system from intel. The concern was that I might crush the pins by accident.
    In the end it turns out that inserting the processor is very simple and the manual is also very clear and well-guided.
    Installing the cooler is also very smooth since the thermal paste is already present (so take it carefully out of the box so that you do not spread it over your finger).

    Once all installations were done, it was clear that the standard office programs and video players load very smoothly. Also the CPU performance is very well balanced when opening the performance graphs (Partly dependent on windows).

    This AMD CPU is therefore definitely recommended for a desk computer.
    Of course, don't expect it to be very fluent when using more advanced programs. It is a 5 series processor and not a 7 or 9 series!

    If you want to do a little more, simply take something more powerful.

    • Good performance
    • Price quality
    • Overclocking capabilities
    • Pretty cool
    • not much better than 3600

    One of the best CPUs at an affordable price. Runs quite cool. If you really want maximum performance/price, it's better to buy the normal 3600 and an aftermarket fan.
