Does the Ryzen 5 3600 come with thermal paste?

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is a powerful and one of the top processors for gaming and heavy tasks. The perfect balance between power, performance, and distribution among other hardware is par to none. Its six powerful cores make it possible to multitask and unleash its potential. Among all the features, one of the best things is the pre-applied thermal paste. However, it is applied at the CPU cooler, not the chipset itself.

Ryzen 5 3600 comes with an average pre-applied thermal paste on its cooler. Usually, processor chip never comes with pre-applied thermal paste on them and AMD as well doesn’t offer this criterion. Unless the processor comes with a wraith cooler alongside to bear a thermal paste, there is no way for a CPU to come with it.

Since Ryzen 5 3600 is a powerful and loaded processor, it is inevitable that it produces a lot of heat while processing the tasks. Thermal paste is necessary here to transfer the produced heat to the base plate for the cooler to work on it. Heat dissipation is a must when the PC hardware’s temperature is on rising. To make sure they are not damaged and work efficiently, the thermal paste will transfer the heat to the cooler for it to lower the temperature.
