What customers say about "Details"
 
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Desktop Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler
  • Installation of AM4 chips is a breeze.
  • First time building a PC and AMD make it painless with the AM4 chipset.
  • It requires a Socket 4 motherboard. It's a pretty good middle-of-the-road price point.
  • The Ryzen series processors (Now Gen 4) are all compatible with the AM4 socket. Good for my build.
  • AM4 is not the simplest socket but I managed it.
