better bang for your buck than intel right now and still competes closely with the i5s and 7th and 6th gen non k i7s in some applications. if you want a good priced cpu for the performance I say go for it.

id go with the X model cause its binned and on top of that you can get a good x470 board and get more features with it and when zen 2 comes out on 7nm you can use your good x470 board with it cause it has good vrms. I recommend the gigabyte x470 gaming k7 or the asus hero 7 or something with a TRUE 8+2 or 10+1 or 10+2 phase check out actually hardcore overclocking's (buildzoid) video on best boards and vrm copy and pasting

It just has really good pricing and games very well with really good multicore performance.

It's very good in terms of performance and amazing in terms of value. Its multithreaded performance is unmatched at this price point and it handles gaming well-enough for almost all GPUs besides the highest-tiered ones that don't really fit a 160$ CPU anyway.

I'd say go for it.

I have a 1600 and love it. Unlike i5s at the same price, there’s multi threading and it’s an unlocked CPU. If you’re just playing games though, it would make more sense to get an i5 8400 or an i3 8350K. (Especially is cooling isn’t great and/or wattage on your PSU.)

You used way too much terminology for me to even remotely understand what your talking about ?

I was going to try to explain, but as I started typing I realized, I dont completely know how to word it to make sense... hopefully some one else chimes in.
