      Second generation Ryzen processor 

      Perfect for everything from finishing off an essay to demanding graphic design work, the Ryzen 5 is a great all-round processor for your desktop. The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 X is a second generation Ryzen processor, which has been boosted for impressive gaming performance. All you need is the right graphics card and you're ready to tackle any game.

      External cooler included

      The Ryzen 5 2600 X comes with a dedicated Wraith Spire CPU cooler, which features a 92 mm fan and runs in near-silence even when you're overclocking. With a low profile and simple look, the Wraith Spire will look great in your build and won't get in the way of your other components.
