[Amazon.ca] Amd Ryzen 5 3600 $243.32

This shouldn't be a deal since it's been below this months ago, but recently it's been an issue finding it under $250.

Nice pairing with that 16GB RAM posted today, just need a cheap mobo.

Tempted to upgrade my i5 4670 rig, does what I need... but all those cores + SMT sounds sweet lol.
Only thing is my i5 mobo has PCI slots for some legacy hardware I'm still running.

i5 9600 for $219.99 or this? I've read that AMD gets slower fps due to bottlenecking in its infrastructure?

9600F or 9600k. But theyre pretty neck n neck in gaming 9600K has a ~5fps advantage but id say for most newer games 3600 is better and will get better. If you do anything else besides gaming esp while gaming like streaming/encoding then 3600 will be okay but youll probably need 10+ cores if you're doing this a lot.

future CPUs will require new motherboard, whereas Ryzen 4 uses AM4 still.

Hmm. I'm also building a computer for light gaming/general use and can't decide between Ryzen 5 3600 or i5 9600k. Leaning towards 3600

For playing Fortnite? Pick whichever one makes for the cheapest build. One of my kids regularly plays Fortnite on my old rig (a 4770k) without any issues. Streaming adds a bit of load, and you'll probably want to do some research if you're seriously into it. My uneducated guess is that the 3600 would do better at streaming. The GPU becomes a factor there too.

Many complain about the temp of the CPU of the Ryzen 5 3600 when it's on load. I had to buy an aftermarket cooler for it. Aside from that, awesome chip!

Depends on what your gaming is I'd say save the money on the CPU (get the cheaper 3600) and spend the rest on the GPU.

I have systems with both ATM, an i5 4670K and a 3600X (from RFD on BF for like $219 actually). Love the AMD chip, it's a beast!

Not to mention the 3600 is cheaper AND better than the 9600K.

I got the Ryzen 5 mostly because it's cheaper and my use was basically like yours. Light gaming and mostly general use. The GPU and RAM/mobo is where you'll need to focus more on depending on the game and what type of settings you want to play at.

I bought this. Maybe not necessary, but hey it looks cool and was cheap. Have had the non-V2 version for a year or so as well.

What was the deal? I tried searching for several different things and couldn't find it

I had originally been looking at the 212, but have been happy with the GAMMAXX. The V2 uses a screw down design instead of relying on pressure clips like the original (I have one original and two V2s).

Hmmm " sintered metal powder heatpipes" so... not copper?

Man, these coolers are more expensive than what I remember, used to be able to get a 212 on sale for $20 frequently just a few years ago. Regret not stocking up!
