4 out of 5 eggsGood but not Good enough

Pros: Plays most graphic basic games at 60 fps, fast when web browsing and watching video at 1080p resolution. I watch twitch streams too and it rarely buffers.

Cons: Play games with complex graphics like battlefield 4 or Payday 2 i had to lower graphic settings down to medium or low and turn resolution to 720p or below. it also gets really hot when i try to render videos on sony vegas. also downloads very slowly compared to my other desktop.

Other Thoughts: The bult in graphics work pretty good with most small games like CS:go, Team fortress, or runescape. the heat sink and cooler work perfectly fine with this APU and it's not even that loud.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Buck Bang

Pros: This performed better than expected right out of the box. This was for a budget church build and this is the best cost/performance curve I could find for the application

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: There were serious budget constraints on this build. this chip gives a really great cost/benefit ratio and is easy to overclock.
I haven't used many AMD chip before, but if this is an indication, I'll use more of them.

5 out of 5 eggsGood APU

Pros: -high speed
-quad core
-no need for GPU as long as you're not playing the latest games at the highest settings
-AWESOME for a business setup

Cons: -If you pair this with an MSI motherboard and want to run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, you WILL have to use a workaround in linux, it's something to do with ubuntu's graphics drivers. There's more information on the interweaving about it. It is a functional workaround that doesn't seem to affect performance on a business machine.
-Stock cooler sucks, but that's expected. If you plan on really pushing this APU, get an aftermarket air-cooler if you don't want to burn this thing up. It idles around 50C in a microatx with fans blowing directly onto it.

Other Thoughts: great low-cost high-performance APU solution for business or low-performance gaming situations. I doubt playing CoD on medium settings would run into any issues as long as you have an aftermarket heatsink/fan combo.

4 out of 5 eggsAMD A8-6600K Richland Quad-Core 3.9GHz Socket FM2 100W Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8570D AD660KWOHLBOX

Pros: This processor is very powerful for it's price. You definitely get what you pay for. It has quad core AND 3.9 ghz. It easily over clocked to 4.2

Cons: Stock heatsink and fan aren't so great.

Other Thoughts: As long as you buy new thermal grease for your heatsink it should be fine. I went to a store and picked up some for $13 ( I wish i would've ordered it from here) and i don't really have any heat issues after that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU/APU

Pros: Fast. Lots of power. Quad-core.

Cons: Perhaps it does run a little warm. But, I'm using the heat sink and fan that comes with this APU and have had no problems. I don't know whether heavy graphics would change that.

Other Thoughts: I'm running Ubuntu GNU/Linux. I found that I had to install the Catalyst/fglrx drivers from AMD in order to get Linux to run in graphics mode (the Gnome desktop, for example).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat starter CPU with one problem

Pros: -Quad Core CPU @ 3.9GHz
-Fairly decent internal Graphics
-At the right price point for anybody

Cons: -The stock Heatsink and Fan is by far the worse I've seen yet. The temp of the CPU is idling at around 65C - 70C even in a room that is cooled by an AC on max speed (56F Temp in the room). I am not impressed at all by this abysmal CPU Cooler. You need an aftermarket cooler to really use it. I played Minecraft for 30 mins before it crashed giving me a Driver error on Windows 7. Checked the Temp and it peaked at 102C and was running at 95C+ the entire time. Limiting the FPS to 60 or even 30 does nothing.

It seems other people are getting mixed results with this cooler but I can assure you that this thing runs a lot hotter than it needs to be. So depending on your situation. Prepare for the worse cause this is NOT good AMD.

Other Thoughts: Buy an Aftermarket cooler even if you are getting little to no issues with that stock cooler. Because it doesn't even look like it'll last very long.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing APU

Pros: -Really fast
-Quad core 4.2GHz
-Easy to over clock
-Radeon HD 8570D Core Clock 844MHz
-I can run almost any game i play including Skyrim which runs at high/medium settings at 40-50FPS with over 20+ mods

Cons: -The stock heat sink and fan don't keep it cool. It stays at about 45 to 60 C idle. 80 to 90 C full load.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend buying an aftermarket cpu cooler such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, especially if you plan on over clocking.
Also, you can allocate more memory to the igpu by going into your bios, it should be in the north bridge settings.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: I needed an APU for a budget build I was doing. I was surprised at the quality of the graphics and the processor speed. I was able to build the complete system for around $350.

Very pleased

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The integrated graphics are surprising nice, won't handle any video games on ultra-high settings, but it plays my MMO-RPG on medium-high at 50fps.

Cons: The stock cooler is by far the loudest part of my whole system, but with even with moderate usage the CPU stays under 40°C.

Other Thoughts: CPU ** AMD A8-6600K 3.9GHz Quad-Core Processor
MB ** Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI Mini ITX FM2+ Motherboard
Ram ** G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory
HD ** Seagate 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive
Case ** Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini ITX Tower Case
PSU ** Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
DVD ** Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
OS ** Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM)(64-bit)
