I'm planning to upgrade my pc
my option is
Ryzen 5 3600 vs Ryzen 3 3300x,
a lot of offline/heavy games and a little work in chrome and excel files, a little stream, with dual monitor.
planning to overclock since i have triple rad liquid cooling
which do you prefer.

Me? I prefer the R5 3600, because you're asking me for my preference(which accounts for what I do). What are the things you're going to do with your new build? A list of app's and games will help more than two fold.

Short answer: Ryzen 5 3600 is best.
It has 2 additional cores (6 cores, compared to the 3300x which only has 4) - and an additional 4 threads.
The L3 cache is also double - 32mb, compared to 16mb for the 3300x.

They both come with the same Wraith Stealth cooler - but the 3600 is a monster for the price.
