Overclocking, although not necessary, is really quite easy and safe on this processor. For those that are not comfortable changing the bios settings, you can download AMD Ryzenmaster and overclock it to 3.7 at least without changing the CPU voltages at all. To overclock you will need a B350 chipset motherboard, which are slightly more expensive than the 320 boards, but offer this benefit in addition to allowing you to add more ram to your system or upgrade to an R5 or R7 later.
If you are using it to game, I would recommend going with a GTX 1050ti 4GB or, if you are willing to spend more, a GTX 1060. I would not recommend going above that, as you will start to see diminishing returns with high end cards.

Il Ryzen 3 1200 è, tuttavia, ancora lungi dall'essere mandato in pensione: con una spesa di soli 65 euro rappresenta ancora un ottimo processore quad core con cui assemblare una build di fascia bassa per il Full HD.
Basteranno una scheda madre con chipset A320/B350 e 8GB di RAM DDR4 per avere una base di partenza a meno di 150 euro su cui costruire un PC da gaming alla portata di tutti.
Whilst my old i7 2600K is an amazing chip - and still runs everything I can throw at it, it's age means that newer technologies aren't available to me - like M.2 sticks, or even just DDR4 speeds. Even the BIOS on the motherboard looked dated to hell now - so much, you can't even control the fans properly.
So I purchased the Ryzen 1200 (along with a new mobo and RAM) as a bit of a 'sidegrade' - I spent less than £300 in total. The Ryzen chip compares to a similar speed as the 2600K - but with some major advantages. The first is it is only 65W. On idle, it sits at around 30 degrees with only 1 fan + the CPU fan on (and on low at that). My machine is silent - something what I usually only had with my Apple Mac. Even under load, I don't have to turn the fans up to full whack. I'm really impressed with this feature alone.
So, I'm now in a position where I have a faster system than I had previously, that runs more economically - and I know that I can easily upgrade it to a higher-end system in the future when funds are available.
AMD really have hit back at the market. A comparable chip by Intel at the moment is the i3 8100 - which for some reason has shot up from £99 a few month ago to nearly £160.. I'm guessing they have a chip shortage at the moment. Ryzen on the other hand give you a quad core chip at £75. Bargain!
I bought for programming and daily work not for gaming it doesn't has graphics unit inside the processor so you have to buy graphics card to load the bios AMD is awesome don't go for Intel Pentium it's overpriced
You can get better performance in AMD than in Intel
This processor gives the performance at intels i5 processor level
Although for gaming u have to go for advanced version of AMD eg:AMD ryzen 5 or 7
Value for money:
But if you want to install custom graphics then go with this processor it'll be value for money
It's not necessary to read reviews of AMD processor because they're awesome
At the moment I use an rx 460 4GB, which is a big bottleneck for the CPU, but it will still run games very good with rainbow 6 seige at 120-30 frames per second. But if you were to stay to an radeon GPU, i would say you would need an rs 570- 580. Or if you want a Geforce card I would say the GTX 1060 6GB. These are only the GPU I would recommend at the time of this review.
