Besides having to buy another motherboard to be compatible with the 5000 series CPUs I love it. I learned just because the socket is an AM4 doesn’t mean it’s compatible with future processors. I upgraded from a Ryzen 5 2400g and couldn’t be happier with the results.
You can OC this or not and it is super fast. Personally if I want to OC I just use the asus software that came with my board. Otherwise make sure you have an after market cooler. This chip gets hot. I was able to get it to 4.8 GHz! I would rather have this chip last a long time than OC it. You won't notice that much of a difference between 4.2 and 4.8.
Awesome Product! Easy to overclock! With an offset and an Under-volt got me to 4.852Ghz. Using CPU-Z benchmark gave me a single score of 656.3 and a Multi Thread score of 4966.6 . I have no complaints, General feel, feels basically the same, but more refined. My gaming experience feels much better much smoother. Running an RTX 2060 Super with it,seems so much better performing now. It's also nice to know I can save a little energy too.
