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)

5 out of 5 eggsAPU with OC ability

Pros: 3.9Ghz quad core runs any game I toss at it, Integrated Radeon Graphics will dual graphics with my R7 250 for even more punch.

Cons: Warm, but not hot. Suggest an upgraded cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsVery useful APU

Pros: Great APU dollar per dollar. If you're building a budget desktop or HTPC then here's a great option. The APU will run some newer games on Low, but don't set your expectations too high. Although if you add a 6970 card the graphics speed near doubles.

Cons: loud and poor cooling factory cooler, but intel also does the same

5 out of 5 eggsPuts on the Heat

Pros: Extremely fast! best for its price. It being an APU allows me to wait on buying a dedicated GPU and the extreme power it puts out allows me to get better quality every thing els without bottle necking on the CPU. Currently i do not have a dedicated GPU but i am still able to run games like Minecraft and League of Legends without bogging down or glitch'ing.

Cons: It is sadly true... this APU does run rather hot. It may be just because i am using it as an APU right now but if your planning on or already have a GPU than there is no need in buying this APU because you obviously have no need for the graphics capabilities that this APU offers. While under load with the stock fan I was running up to 90*C (for those unfamiliar with metric system, 100*C is boiling water or 212*F). The stock fan was super easy to install however. it came with a thermal compound pad pre installed so it was just a peel, stick, and go type of operation.

Other Thoughts: I am now using a "Rosewill RCX-ZAIO-92 92mm Sleeve Bearing Fan CPU Cooler". This lowered my temps by around 20*C right out of the box. This is without the "break in period" where the thermal compound is still forming a better thermal bond between the CPU and cooler (each time it heats up, the past expands a little to fill in more mico crevices. When it cools it forms bonds so during the next heat up it will be able to transfer more heat. Physics is lovely
