I think it'd be a worth it upgrade as you're getting more single core performance so even if you aren't cpu-bound you'll still have more performance, and if you ever do get cpu-bound well the 5600x has more multicore performance so it won't happen or it will be less severe, as the 3600 is somewhat of a weak cpu for your system..
