5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: These A-Series CPU's are awesome. For $88 you get 90% of the features compared to an intel chip over $200+. As we all know, this thing runs HOT, but the 3.9GHz on this bad boy makes it super fast and can do anything or more that any comparable intel can do for half the cost. I would DEFINITELY reccomend, down the line to combine this with a liquid CPU cooler to help keep it cooler and cut down on the noise from the stock heatsink and fan. But for the most part I am 100% Satisfied.

Cons: Runs Hot, Stock heatsink and fan are a little noisy, nothing an aftermarket water cooler or air cooler cant fix down the road.

4 out of 5 eggsA8 5600k

Pros: Very powerful even when straight out of the box

Cons: I noticed that the heat was getting up there in temp (around 80 on load) after i installed my graphics card

Other Thoughts: Great processor for the money. Really strong even using it as a apu it runs game at around 30-60 frames medium settings

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but slightly misleading box.

Pros: Processor is good. Runs great and stable. Plenty of power out of the box for some basic gaming.

Plenty fast for a good budget gaming build. Dual graphics worked well once set up. Running 35+ FPS on GW2 @ High/Ultra Settings when paired with a 6570.

Cons: Box states that the A8 line are compatible for dual graphics with a 6670. Problem is, only the A8-6000+ are directly supported for dual graphics with a 6670. I had bought a 6670 to pair with this, but had to sell it and pick up a 6570. I tried every work around I could find on the forums and was unsuccessful at getting it to work. Some people had stated that they were successful though. I must not be smart enough =/

Stock heat-sink seemed inadequate for it. I was getting some pretty high temp fluctuations under load. I replaced with an aftermarket cooler and all is well.

Other Thoughts: Once I had the right card, the dual graphics kicked in and worked well. I didn't see a big increase in FPS in GW2 with dual graphics compared to stock. I did notice a big difference in the consistency of the FPS.

Stock, the FPS fluctuated a bit when running and in combat. With the dual graphics enabled, I noticed no drop in FPS. The harder I worked it the more it stayed the same.

Obviously GW2 is not a standard in bench-marking for gaming machines, however it does require a bit to turn up the graphics.

My only issue with this processor was the box was misleading. I wasted time and money purchasing a 6670 thinking it would be compatible due to the box. I should have done more research on my end to verify, but it should be more clearly labeled on the box. At least an asterisk with an additional statement or something. I only docked it one egg because other than that, this processor does everything it should and I expected.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent CPU

Pros: Quad-core. It works amazingly well for its price and is

Cons: High temps when idle (49 C) using the stock cooler. Anemic integrated GPU.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this CPU or any of AMD's APUs if you plan on getting a dedicated GPU. You will be paying more for something you don't need (integrated GPU). The CPU powered through many applications and games, but suffers when system memory is less than 8GB. One of my two memory sticks went bad and i was forced to use 4GB instead of the usual 8GB and the system was terribly slow. Memory management isn't the best. I've recently switched to an i5-4670K and with only 4GB of system memory, it performs as well as this CPU with 8GB. There are many options that would have served me better this A8 as i had a dedicated GPU, however, i was not disappointed with its performance at all (except with the 4GB of RAM). This is a great CPU, but there are better options.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect price point

Pros: Faster and with better onboard graphics than I expected. Snappy is the word to use. Lowest price point that actually Rocks :) Looking forward to pushing it.

Cons: None, can't beat it for the money. AMD always gives more for the money. I3? Naa, no, this quad is the way to go.

Other Thoughts: I had a cooler from an 8 core vishera that was brand new just lying around since I used an aftermarket enormous cooler on the FX 8350. I will never see any heat issues. Cooler that came with it does look like it would be sufficient at stock clocks but this is a black edition unlocked :) I will play and see what it can do.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget CPU

Pros: Nice budget Processor with APU. I didn't Overclock with it because even with better cooling this CPU is not the best choice for Over Clocking. This CPU is plenty fast enough for a great budget build, but don't expect blazing speed such as an Intel i5 would be. Do not listen to others that complain about the fan and heat sink it comes with. At stock speeds this processor stays plenty cool with it's stock cooler even under full load. This fan is not that loud and works fine. If ultra quiet and high performance cooling for Over clocking is what you want then why would you select this processor? It's designed to be a solid budget stock CPU with good ability to play most games at low settings without a graphics card. If performance Gaming is what you want then AMD makes a faster CPU without APU that you add a high end graphics card with. Using 8Gb of RAM and an SSD drive with Windows 8.1 this Processor boots fast and provides great all around performance for any budget build. I'm very satisfied with it.

Cons: None. It's a budget Processor and does what it's supposed to do at it's price point.

3 out of 5 eggsGood budget cpu

Pros: Good little CPU, lower cost than Intel but not as strong, but for the budget builds will do just fine.
On sale often, so can save a few more bucks
APU so no video card required, good for those Internet users.
Can overclock, got mine to 4.5GHz without care for heat on a budget mobo

Cons: Heat is a concern. Prime95 hitting this full load made temperature get a bit high. Sensors on board are sketchy, had lmsensors not able to report (known and not fixable according to dev) and CoreTemp reports nothing.
Not a true quad core. It is 2 physical cores that acts as 4. While not a huge problem for my builds (2), is a notice.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent for a Budget build

Pros: It is a nice processor. I have it at stock settings, and under heavy load I have seen it as high as 30 C. I used to use AMD's for all my builds, and I know they run hot, but this one is surprisingly cool on stock heatsink and fan.
This is my first build using an APU from AMD and it is not too terrible. I am not a huge fan of AMD Graphics. I have not tested any games, but I don't expect too much from it, so I won't be disappointed.
AMD has made the heatsink mounting process so much easier. I am pleased for that.

Cons: I don't think I will ever be happy with any of the multi-core processors. There isn't enough programs out there that can really take full advantage.
I don't know how well I can trust AMD's temperature sensors. This has been a problem for me since their Phenom series, and I have no idea if they really fixed it. At one point, the temp was reporting as 0 C. I know it is not that cold. Even on liquid I can not get my i7 that low (lowest I get is 15 C)

Other Thoughts: This was the processor for a budget build for a family computer. I know it will do well for what it will be used for. Again, I switched from AMD to Intel for a reason, and I have been happy with Intel, but AMD never disappoints at first. Takes some time, but this is years later. I don't see this really doing well under intense loads judging from what I see Windows Update doing to it, but then again, who knows. Only time will tell.

4 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Painless install. Computer runs very fast and responsive with no problems with stability at all.

Cons: Stock cooler isn't quite enough and tends to run hot! Same issue with my other APU. I'd say they all need to be upgraded or replaced with an aftermarket cooler.

Other Thoughts: I love AMD but I'm getting a little tired of the cheap coolers they come with. My older builds came with much better stock coolers than these. I'm going to replace all of them from the start from now on because I don't approve of my APU running at over 80c while at idle even with a good quality thermal compound in use.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm impressed

Pros: Fast little cpu for what you pay. Integrated gpu negates need for video card. Performs what it's asked to do - video streaming, web surfing, email - with ease.

Cons: None that I can think of. I used to go with AMD all the time until Intel started beating them in performance with the introduction of the Core2Duo. I still use Intel for gaming, but for everyday computing there's no reason to. And I'm sure if I added a discreet video card this cpu would game just fine.

Other Thoughts: I got this as part of a combo deal that I bought to put together a multimedia system, and this cpu is perfect for that. Total bill for system, with a thrown in DVD drive was $274, and that's with an SSD and a HDD. Throw in a copy of Win 8.1 and you've got a decent little system. Glad I didn't go with one of those book sized computers.
