Ryzen 5 1600, hmm. From what i see from the userbenchmark, it seems weaker than Ryzen 7 1700. I also have a question, does overclocking causes overheat problems? Cause what i see, Ryzen 5 1600X is better than Ryzen 7 1700.
It depend on your budget. If you got more budget to spare, R7 1700 is better then R5 1600.
All Ryzen CPU are OC-able by default. The X version give you more head room for OC compare to non X. But it also cost more.
Take note, you need B350 or above motherboard to able to OC. Cheaper A320 do not support OC.
For heavy workload that benefit from core instead of clock speed, Ryzen is way more better then Intel, and cheaper too.
