Is a Ryzen 5 3600 enough for coding?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I am building a new rig for gaming and some other stuff like programming and some - not that much tho - rendering. Is the ryzen 5 3600 enough for that?

Yes, it's more than enough.

SPECS:

CPU: Xeon X5650 OC'd to 4.4GHz @ 1.36V (courtesy of @XR6) Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth X58 RAM: 4x4GB G.Skill DDR3 1866MHz GPU: XFX R7 370 4GB with an Arctic Twin Turbo II Storage: WD Blue 1tb and a 128GB Kingston UV400 PSU: EVGA 600B Case: Fractal Design Define C Monitor: Dell G2410T and Dell P2210 Mouse: Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Keyboard: Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S (MX Browns) with Varmillo black and grey PBT dye-sub caps Mousepad: Steelseries QcK Headset:  Sennheiser HD 4.40

The Celeron in my laptop is enough for code, compiling huge programs is a different story. If you're just typing in Java, any CPU will do it.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

depends on what your doing.

For coding and and occasional rendering, it's plenty.

That's what I'm going to do with it mainly. I could change to a 3700x, but I would have to downgrade to a worse graphics card than.

Yes. And maybe some blender renders. But just occasionally.

I'm gonna use the stock cooler at first and if the temperatures are too high, I'm gonna use some liquid cooler.

I think so too, yeah. That's why I looked for a cheaper liquid one.

This not my field but I know my nephew did some programming and he used Amazon web services for compiling the large programs for his university degree. I don't think it costs much at all. He is a student and pretty tight with cash anyway.
