The Ryzen 5 3600 is an excellent 65W chip for small form factor enthusiasts, packing quite the punch in a small thermal envelope. After simple one-click overclocking, it offers nearly the same performance as its more expensive counterpart, but at a $50 discount. That makes the Ryzen 5 3600 the uncontested value champ in its price range.

TechSpot

As predicted the Ryzen 5 3600 offers a tremendous value and because it sips power it’ll work on even the most basic B350 motherboard, provided it receives the necessary BIOS update
