5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

Pros: Works great for my HTPC, generates little to no heat requiring minimal cooling. Has enough power to do anything short of high end gaming but works great for all video.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome APU! Runs very cool even in a cramped Mini ITX Build.

Cons: Stock cooler is kind of difficult to install.

Other Thoughts: Their are cheaper somewhat higher performing CPUs and APUs out there, but the fact that AM1 motherboards are so cheap and the power requirement is so low you can really save money on an entire build.

5 out of 5 eggsVery capable APU

Pros: As you read from most other reviews, the pros are obvious. Low TDP, 25w, integrated graphics that can deliver 1080P playback without problem. Quad core, multi-functionality and very competitive pricing. I have used this CPU for a number of different builds now. Some of the things I have used it for are, Server, HTPC, multi-monitor and manager for news feeds on large TV’s, DJ equipment manager, internet computer, thin clients and basic use office computer. Everything thrown at this CPU has been handled efficiently.

Cons: Only things I notice I did not like about this CPU is the mounting and cooling system for AM1. The AM1 cooling system can be a pain to install in tight areas and if you are new to it, it will take a bit of reading the product to figure it out. The fan included also only provide a 3pin, but all boards I have used provide a 4pin CPU fan header.

Other Thoughts: With everything I have tested this CPU with, I decided to get one for myself to replace my aging home server running on a core 2 quad. Picked it up paired with a board for $69.99. I primarily chose this because of low TDP, low wattage sipping power being on 24/7 and can do so many jobs. I understood the limitations of the CPU and paired motherboards and know it can only handle 2 SATA drives with no RAID. In my build I used a small RAID card in the PCIE x4 slot to hook up 4, 4TB HDD’s in 2 separate RAID 1 groups. Each RAID has its own job. Now, I used a port replicator for 2 SSD’s that are hooked to one SATA port on the board. This was for the OS and important programs. The Port replicator mirrors data, (RAID 1) and feeds it through one SATA port providing the redundancy. The OS I loaded was Fedora 21 but changed to 8.1 pro, now upgraded to Windows 10 pro. The role this computer plays is, Plex media server, Minecraft server, Video Capture server, Ventrilo server, File (cloud) server, monitor and reporting system. All of these programs are running at once! Now, not all are being taxed at the same time but I can report that it was capable of playing 2 movies on different TV’s, have 10 people in Vent server, 8 people playing Minecraft and streamed reporting information all at the same time, never skipping a beat at all. I am very happy with this CPU and am looking forward to the next version AMD will release. I originally was going to use an i3 for this build but it could not be as efficient as I wanted nor be at the price point desired, Pentiums/Celerons did not have cores needed and the J1900 bogged down on steaming more than one video. I really wanted to use the J1900 too. The J2900 was out of the price range for what I wanted to build with. Needed the money for RAID and Power redundancy. In all, this computer has been doing its job with 1 reboot to apply an update for the last 4 months.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Spot CPU

Pros: Inexpensive. Small. Very low power (25 watts!). Integrated graphics. With 4 cores at 2.05 GHZ it has plenty of processing power for any normal work load. Seriously - unless you are gaming or (much rarer) doing heavy duty data crunching and the like no one needs more processing power than this. Very inexpensive MOBOs for this are available that provide VGA output so no graphics card is needed.

Cons: None.

If you want something this doesn't offer, then you want something different (and more expensive and much more power hungry).

Other Thoughts: I used this is in a build where the CPU/MOBO/RAM/HD combo pulls maybe 50 watts total. 16 GB RAM was the most expensive part costing more than the rest of the system (not counting the case) put together.

5 out of 5 eggsThe 5350 really delivers

Pros: My first build included this CPU, and I am pleased with it's performance. Pair this with a higher end video card, and you're good to go.

Cons: The heat sink/fan that comes with it is only 3pin, and it runs at full speed. Geld makes a PWM CPU cooler for 20 bucks, so problem solved.

Other Thoughts: Great CPU for a great price, good first build cpu.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Low-Cost, Low Power CPU Option

Pros: Cheapest x86 quad core on the market
Runs FANLESS in a 1U server chassis at over 60% util with no overheating problems
Virtualization support
Extremely high performance-per-dollar

Cons: Chipset only supports 2 SATA ports. (Some motherboards include a discrete controller, however these have been tested to have poor performance, and linux drivers can be hard to come by)

Other Thoughts: I bought this tiny quad core to run in an auxiliary VM Host for a few servers. I wanted these servers separate from the other hosts in my environment, and didn't want it to produce much heat or incur much in energy costs. I also didn't want to pay for an expensive quad core just to get the number of threads needed to run concurrent virtual machines.

I have the processor running without a heatsink fan because there are no 3rd party heatsinks for this socket, and the stock fan and heatsink are too tall for the 1U chassis it is in. The chassis itself has 2 front fans, but RAM is completely obstructing the processor from direct airflow from these fans, and it doesn't have heat problems. Absolutely fantastic.

I'm running 4 virtual machines around the clock. This particular VM Host sits on my network edge and serves up public services for my environment -- a Lync server with dial-in conferencing, a web/jump server, a virtual workstation (windows server 2008) and a FreeNAS box managing my two USB-connected shared drives.

All four servers are responsive and I never have any hangs or lag. I don't think I've ever been happier with a processor than this one. Very pleasantly surprised.

5 out of 5 eggsmedia player/recorder

Pros: there are a couple of cons opinions for a little slow .. what do you want for a $50 cpu and a whopping 25 whats.. I think there is plenty of cpu power here .. I have used it for a media pc. first thing is this thing is silent for me. I can not hear it in the living room during the quietenst parts of the movie .. I have a Haupagge 2250 dual tuner and have enough cpu power to record 2 video streams while watching a third off the disk and never drop a frame .

Next power efficiency is amazing, I am not sure how it does it , but it can record while it is powered off.. the power light doesn't turn on and it just does it .. I am not sure how .. I am impressed ...

plus the motherboards for this cpu is incredibly cheap

Cons: most of these mother boards have only 2 sata connectors , one for ssd one for massive storage for the video recorder .. and there is nothing left over for a dvd player.. so I used a external storage case with and old dvd pata... which in the end reduces power since I only need the dvd every once in a great while ..

Other Thoughts: if you are like me and living with out cable , this and Windows media center is great for recording your favorite network shows to watch later

this is awesome set up ..
