4 out of 5 eggsFor what it IS at the price, not bad...

Pros: Over clocked to 4.6ghz on water with STOCK voltage. The GPU is way better than expected. This is not a high end video card or even a great CPU per say, but it combos both at a great price. Great for a get by until you can afford to go big.

Cons: HOT, HOT, HOT. Did Mention it runs HOT?

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Graphics

Pros: Sweet grpahics, cheaper than Intel, great bang for the buck. This APU replaced a dual core AMD with an old video card that is used solely as a media pc.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsSweet APU

Pros: Graphics are awesome, I was not expeciting such clarity. Probably a bit of an overkill for just a media pc, but why not have something nice that will last.

Ths APU is used in a media pc setup with:
ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 AMD A85X
Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ
LG 42" HD/3D tv.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Home Server CPU

Pros: Handles Home server roles with Ease.

Low idle wattage in a full system (40-45W idle)

Overclocks well (4.4ghz on stock voltage with cool and quiet ENABLED). Completely stable while running for weeks straight.

Handles pretty much any home server task I give it.

Cons: Low cinebench score compared to heavily overclocks Phenom II quad.

PII x4 @ 4.2ghz gets about 420 while the APU at 4.4ghz gets about 320-340.

stock cooler not good for overclocking if you plan to push the system hard for extended periods of time.

Other Thoughts: I use this APU in a home server. I needed something with 4 threads that was cheep and would be nice on power.

This CPU runs 24/7 at only 45W when Idling.

I run 24/7 with the following services

Malwarebytes Anti Virus
Filezilla Server
Serviio UnPN streaming
Boinc (similar to folding at home)
VM ware for hosting Debian and Windows 7
Hosts my Bitcoin and Litecoin wallets
Bittorrent for downloading and uploading various linux .iso around the clock.
VNC Server
Windows Remote Desktop Server
Printer Server

The server idles at about 0-5% utilization with all of those services running. Even when the VM machines are running (idling) the system idles very low.

I run windows server 2008 r2 and it is very stable at 4.4ghz on stock voltage AND AMD Cool and Quiet enabled. The system also hits 100% utilization every night for 2 hours while Boinc runs (similar to folding at home).


I love using these CPUS in machines that dont need to Game, Video Render, or perform other heavy loads that need to be completed quickly. They are perfect for the everyday person and for home server tasks without breaking the bank.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: nice n fast ez oc running 4.2ghz @ 34c on TT 2.0 water. 7.6 wei, little better then my 955 ph II black(3.4ghz). graphics get a 6 on wei, which a few years ago was better then good. oc'd the gpu 1000+mhz still got 6 wei, oh well. can give it 2g of ram to use too.

Cons: system says its a 2 core with 4 cores (split die)?

Other Thoughts: this thing with 1600 cas 7 ram screams. can play my games max settings, looks like im playing at 1.5x norm speed, ill have toget use to that lol. price is nice.

4 out of 5 eggsNice and Speedy.

Pros: Quad Core. Good integrated graphics. Good bang for the $.

Cons: None that I can think of.. Wasn't free?

Other Thoughts: Had a video card die in an Intel system. Decided to just try an AMD APU solution. So far I'm impressed. The machine was not intended for gaming but we discovered that it can play games quite well. Possibly re-purposing this machine for a gaming rig.

5 out of 5 eggsSnappy

Pros: -Less gpu cores than 6800k, more power to the cpu.
-Ridiculous price/performance ratio, even at full price.

Cons: pins are still on cpu, and not mobo. makes me cringe with each install.

Other Thoughts: with a hyper 212 installed, the temperatures shown by Asus AiSuite are incredible under full load, and with 2133mhz Ram, the gpu cores fly.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but not great

Pros: For the money its a good chip. Just not as good all around as I was hoping. Performs fairly well when used as a family computer for internet an some light gaming. Will run games like borderlands 2, diablo 3, starcraft, just cause 2 well so long as you not one to insist that the graphics levels all be maxed.

Cons: Runs very hott!!!! Amd is notorious for running warm and the stock coolers not working well but this one was hopeless. idle in bios at 55 C. idle in windows at 67 C. Run prime 95 and you better be able to shut it down quick. will hit 90 C before you really know what's happening. fan on the cooler is working at max rpm constantly. removed the cooler, cleaned off and put new arctic silver paste on it. still the same problem. only a 1 to 2 degree drop in temp from factory paste to the silver. doesn't perform in games as well as i was hoping.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to buy this chip and i do recommend it, get an aftermarket cooler. cooler master hyper 212 works wonderfully. the gaming performance isn't everything that i was hoping it would be but for he price of the chip in comparison with the intel alternative it surpasses performance all around. its a jack of all trades but a master of none. This chip is in a budget build and the first time that i have played with an apu. Would use one again but will spend a bit more money to get the A10. Make sure you speck enough ram that the cpu can share a gig or better with graphics.

3 out of 5 eggsOK for business applications

Pros: Cheap, works well for typical house hold use.

Cons: System chokes on any kind of load. P states flutter like a leaf in the wind.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if it's the chip or the MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 it's paired with but give this system any kind of loading and it starts throttling down to a low power state. If you need an quick system for office stuff this will fit the bill with out the need for a graphics card. Anything more demanding I would skip this and go for a full quad core and video card.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best Value for Office and Personal PCs

Pros: For a low price you are getting a powerful processor with a decent integrated graphics chip. With AMD graphics, you have the nice capabilities of OpenCL for programs like GIMP, Photoshop, and LibreOffice. The AMD chip will accelerate video decoding and web browsing to bring about a fluid interface.

Cons: For casual gaming, it works well, but it doesn't work well with higher end titles. If you are looking into high end gaming, you might want to get a nice graphics card such as AMD's R9 270 or higher.

Other Thoughts: The performance of your system will largely depend on how fast your RAM is in an APU system. I would advise buying AMD Radeon RAM to go with these because of the AMD Memory Profiles in them. I would also advise buying RAM rated at no less than 1866MHz.
