  • Heat sink included in R5 1600,1500x,1400.

Thoughts :

I believe at 200 bucks 1600 is offering 6 Cores / 12 Threads it is best processor for light content creation,  for daily use, gaming and streaming at same time and offers better performance than Intel Core i5 and future proof which is great if you’re looking for a budget build, This CPU is highly recommended with B350 $99.99 motherboard offers memory overclocking and quality features or pick 1500x which is Quad Core CPU with 8 Threads and still good for today games.
