5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Great for budget builds. Don't need a graphics card. Works very well. Solid and reliable.

Cons: Non yet.

Other Thoughts: I use this for a media PC. I am using passive cooling with no fans and have had no problems with it. Build is completely silent. I have not overclocked it as for my use there is really no need to. Using SSD for Windows, and HDD for storage. Do some mild gaming via steam, and have had no bottle necks. I would purchase another AMD APU again for media builds. Good performance, great price.

4 out of 5 eggsRuns well, but hot

Pros: Runs incredibly well. Handles any task I throw at it - gaming, Adobe CC, etc.

Cons: Like everyone has said, it still runs hot. I've purchased an aftermarket cooler reducing the temps ~9 C. It runs at normal temps during the winter but a little hot in my upstairs loft during summer.

Other Thoughts: Definitely would recommend, make sure your case has decent air flow (or purchase a different cooler).

4 out of 5 eggsworks

Pros: Fast enough seems to work well

Cons: stock cooler is awful it was running up to 6000 rpm to keep the cpu at 56 to 60 C on idle put an aftermarket cooler on now hovering at 29 C on idle. docked one egg for that hidden cost.

5 out of 5 eggsWindows Experience Score 7.4 CPU, 6.9 GPU

Pros: Great chip for home/office build.
Runs quiet and cool ~ 30.C. idle.
7-64 WEI Score 7.4 CPU, 6.9 GPU (2D & 3D)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: 3 Tips:
Paired with 1866 Ram (have to use XMP profiles over 1600).
Disabled "Turbo", no hit to performance, saves power & heat.
"Unparked" all cores for a big performance gain, no down-side.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value for my money

Pros: Perfect for what I need. I mostly used it as an HTPC and run Minecraft for the kids. Built in video is ok. I can play most games with decent quality. Some folks complained about high temperature and it crashing (even playing Minecraft). I did not get this at all even after hours of play. I'm using the stock heatsink but I did use my own high quality thermal paste. Perhaps that's what made the difference. I have it running 24/7 for weeks. No problem yet.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding value!

Pros: + Awesome performance/features for the cost
+ Very capable IGP
+ Expandable/tweakable IGP memory
+ Low cost may be due to budget heat sink that is included in the retail package (not a con in my book, the heat sink is still capable).

Cons: - None whatsoever. A month of heavy gaming after purchase I am still blown away by the performance of this chip.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this for my partner's first time build to surf the web, stream HD video and play current gen games. She does all of that with this APU and no dedicated video card. Most newer games have to be bumped down to 720p but to be able to run these new games at all without spending another $100+ on a discrete video card is outstanding. We've been able to tweak the video settings in every game to run at a buttery 60fps and still look and feel immersive.

We paired this APU (at stock settings) with 8GB of Sniper DDR3-1866 memory (OC'd to 2133 for a few extra FPS) and seated them on an MSI A78M-E45 MATX mobo. She is playing most pre-2012 titles @ 1080p med-high settings and current titles @ 720p med-high settings. CPU cores hardly ever reach full utilization and overall APU temp never reads higher than 60C (with bundled, budget heat sink and Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste, about a month of burning in. Idles around 34C).

Bottom line, this is a fantastic jump-off point for anyone ready for an upgrade. We bought this 6600k, 8GB of DDR3 and a mATX mobo for under $200. Recycled the old hard drive, power supply, case, keyboard, mouse, etc. She can play all the titles she has on Steam with the option of adding a discrete videocard down the road. Overall experience is incredibly enjoyable.
