5 out of 5 eggsgreat for the price

Pros: Great APU for light weight users (your mom/grandma who checks the news, reads email, and maybe watches some youtube) and a fantastic APU for an HTPC. For about 100 dollars you can get this CPU + a decent gigabyte motherboard with optical audio. Handles everything at 1080p very well, including youtube, netflix, and any locally stored videos. Overclocks quite easily as well.

Cons: Stock heatsink is pretty skimpy, but it will do the job just fine if you are running at stock speeds. I put an old stock thuban heatsink on it since those are about twice as large, and it is more than enough to handle this APU with a decent overclock.

Other Thoughts: It's hard to find this info, but the stock voltage is 1.25. Most motherboards overvolt this to 1.4 or more with LLC, and you will get some pretty awful temps and power usage as a result. Manually set it to 1.25 and it will cool right down.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordahle performance APU

Pros: Very strong APU.
Lots of harware acceleration blocks that off-load the tasks from brute-force CPU processing.
Used in HTPC to do the following: play high-bandwidth (low compression) Blu-Ray movies, run older game emulators, play modern 3D games (at reduced settings).
Runs practically silent and cool at 65W in HTPC + light gaming machine. Overclocks and underclocks effortlessly on stock cooler.
Unlocked and allows 45W TDP setting, to run completely silent (for those who require completely silent machine).

Windows 8.1 gave it a score of 7 for CPU and 5.9 for GPU (3D)

Cons: initial price at release (95-100$). Definitely makes more sense at 70$, which is a bit more than A6-6400K, but justified by a higher passmark score (2972 vs 2373). I guess the higher price was set to avoid the 7400K cannibalizing the sales of 6400K.

Other Thoughts: For the past 10 years I used Intel CPUs exclusively (anywhere between Celeron 340 up to i7-3770K).

Glad I tried AMD for this solution and would advise anyone who is building an HTPC or a machine that is not going to be handling heavy-duty CPU tasks (e.g. multi-stream simultaneous "real-time" video transcoding at 1080p).

This APU has plenty of power for most common tasks and has room to spare. The A6-7400K is a well-rounded product from the perspective of CPU+GPU features and performance. The price ~70$ gives it the edge over intel offers, especially their 60-70$ price niche (Celeron/Pentium 3220 etc.).

Here's my system that worked flawlessly from first attempt:
Motherboard - Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3H
APU - A6-7400K
RAM - G-Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB DDR3-1866
SSD - Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB
Optical drive - Pioneer BDC-207DBK
OS - Windows 8.1 Pro x64
PSU - Lepa Mx-F1 350W
Case - SilverStone ML03B
