I've been testing the new Ryzen 5 1600X extensively over the last week or so, and have come to really love what AMD has achieved with it - offering 6C/12T of CPU performance for $249.

But now the 6C/12T processor has been overclocked to 5.9GHz on LN2 by overclocker der8auer. He used the ASUS ROG Crosshair IV Hero X370 motherboard with a BIOS from February 8, alongside G.Skill Trident Z DDR4 RAM, a Samsung SSD, and Windows 7.

With most of these huge overclocks under LN2, it's with one core enabled - leaving the other 3 (and the four Hyper-Threading cores) disabled. AMD's new Ryzen 5 1600X has its full 6C/12T enabled, with all of them running at 5.9GHz der8auer broke all of the records for Cinebench, Geekbench, and GPUPi. AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X @ 5.9GHz beats out the Intel Core i7-5820K from the 6-threaded awards it used to have.
