The 5600x is more than enough for gaming it seems and I am very happy with it.

In games, at 1440p, I'm often GPU limited so there's no a huge bump in fps for the new CPU, and I don't expect the 5600X to be be the limiting factor in gaming for me for a long time.
So why four and not five stars? Price, and I mean MSRP, not the £400 these can appear at right now (Jan 21). Even at £280, this is quite a bit more than the 3600 or i5 10600KF (which are about £180 and £225 respectively right now). If you're only gaming, and don't have a top end GPU, the 3600 or 10600KF would likely perform as well. If you're using your PC for other things (coding, content creation etc), then the 5600X might well be worth it, but I really wouldn't pay more than £300.
One thing to note is that this is still very new hardware so many motherboards will require a USB bios update for this to work. My MSI B550 had me worried that the CPU didn't work for about half an hour but a quick download to a usb stick, plugging it in and pressing a button on the motherboard solved the whole issue.
Hence the docked star
However, this is a stonking cpu. mine was holding 4.65ghz across 4 cores and even fully loaded barely hits 65c on a 240mm aio set to silent mode. It even seems to of reduced some of my performance issues in ACC (i use it for 4k/VR so wasnt expecting much).
Everybenchmark i run it crushes everything i have upto 4 cores. And upto about 10 threads only my 3900x can come close.
Yes none of us like the price - but this sort of performance.. and i can drop it in any of my AM4 machines... any hate is quickly overwhelmed with love.
I was going to skip getting a 5900x, but after getting the 5600x for my vr rig - i cant wait to get hold of two of them 'glued' together.
Good times AMD.
