    i5 7600K if you mainly use it for gaming and you want high FPS.
    Go for Ryzen 1600x if you want a more balanced system that can do gaming decently which is still a good upgrade from the FX 4300 as well as being able to multi-task more efficiently with those extra cores and threads.

    1600X is definitely the winner here, with 6C/12T, it is a far better value than the 7600K.
    I suggest you buy the 1600, because it comes with a cooler and there is no need for an aftermarket one, you can probably overclock the 1600 to 3.8 at least.


    Will ryzen 1600x bottleneck as fx 4300 does...
    Also please suggest 1600 or 1600x

  4. The 1600X is largely pointless as you pay extra for a CPU without stock, then pay some more for an adequate aftermarket HSF. If you plan to overclock, the 1600 will get you to practically the same point for $60 less.

    I just answered this in the previous thread...What's with you making a new thread, despite of having an active one?
    Ryzen cores are over 40% faster on the same clock speed.

  10. Thanks.. I already have cooler master hyper212 heat sink . Can I use with suggested mobo .
    Reply to Ricky_92
  11. Yes, shouldn't be a problem, but unless you have it, you don't need to buy it.
    Reply to lakimens
  12. Is stock cooler is enough or need to buy for overclocking or cooler master heat sink is enough?
    Reply to Ricky_92
  13. Please answer
    Reply to Ricky_92
  14. The stock cooler should be good enough for a 3.7-3.8GHz overclock where you likely won't need to bump core voltage. Since most Ryzen CPUs max out at 3.9-4.0GHz, there isn't much point in throwing substantial extra money and effort at it beyond that unless you really want to for kicks and giggles.

    Please don't bump posts that are merely minutes old. Wait for at least a few days. Some mods have a light trigger and will lock/delete threads for this.

  16. If I go with ryzen 1600x with good heat sink will it help in increase some fps instead of using 1600 with stock cooler
    Reply to Ricky_92
  17. ???
    Reply to Ricky_92
  18. Most likely won't, 3.9Ghz is the max on most Ryzen chips and you can achieve it with the stock cooler.

  19. If you lightly OC the 1600 and leave the 1600X at stock, they will perform about the same. Otherwise, the 1600X has a 400MHz base and boost clock advantage, which makes it up to about 10% faster stock-vs-stock.

  20. Please suggest any good heat sink ...if I go with 1600x
    Reply to Ricky_92
  21. Don't go with the 1600x, go with the 1600 & use the included heatsink.
    This advice has already been given numerous times.

    At stock speeds there is about a 3% difference between the 1600 & 1600x for gaming - this equates to about 2 fps.
    They both boost to 3.7gh under mid to heavy multi core loads , the 1600x is not worth paying extra for , you actually get less for your money.

  22. If I buy r 1600 then will I get a approx 60 fps In medium to high settings combining with gtx 1060 GB.
    Reply to Ricky_92
  23. The 1060 3gb is weaker than the ryzen 1600.
    The GPU will become your limitation once you have a new CPU.
    Reply to madmatt30
  24. But I already have gtx 1060 3gb..so I can't upgrade it....so what will be best cpu for it...for best performance in gaming..
    Reply to Ricky_92
  25. I never said you should upgrade the GPU.
    Merely stating that none of the i5, ryzen 1600 , or 1600x will hold back a 1060 3gb in any way.

    For that reason you should just go for the cheapest option which is the 1600.

  26. What about ram...which one I should go for and frequency?

    One of these would do you good:
    Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($66.99 @ Newegg)
    Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2800 Memory ($67.99 @ Newegg)

  28. Please also suggest best mobo for ryzen 1600 as I want to run ram at 3200mhz....which mobo will make it execute best without any bios problem
    Reply to Ricky_92
  29. Any B350 motherboard should do it, these are unlocked processors, so just enable XMP in the BIOS.
