Very good cpu.. single core performance is amazing but multicore performance is worse than ryzen 1600x

For the price you pay, you get a little more than you expect. Sure you can't OC but if you want to OC throw in another $20 and you can get the 7600k, but you don't even need to OC as the CPU is already really good. Overall for the performance you get, the price is really good and you won't need an upgrade for at least 3-4 years.

Please do yourself a favor, and spend the extra money on the K (OCable) version. It's so much better. That aside, the value isn't that horrible.
