5 out of 5 eggsSnappy Little CPU

Pros: Perfect for home office builds. I had to build a new system for my parents who are very dependent on their PC for their two online businesses.

I was going to purchase the A6-5500 but I was trying to save them money since their budget was definitely limited. After further research I decided to go with this one and have been pleasantly surprised.

1) Fast for what it is asked to do and load times are a breeze which I did not expect..

2) Quiet and no heat issues (they won't push it anyway plus it is in a HAF 912). I have read enough warnings about AMD heatsinks but no issues here ( though I did remove the thermal pad that came with it and replaced it with Artic Silver 5).

3.) Heatsink is easily to install.

4) Less than $50. Are you kidding me?

Cons: None though I can see how AMD really needs to provide better heat sinks. They have a cheapness to them but in my case it does the job.

Other Thoughts: I would not hesitate to use this cpu again in home office builds.

8 gigs of RAM @ 1600 helps this cpu in the APU end.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for a...regular computer

Pros: Used this in a new build for my father back in February. It replaced his 10-year-old Vaio so, needless to say, longevity is the priority. 7 months in its running as smoothly as it was day one; and my father, 64 years young, understands Windows 8 far far better than I do.

Cons: Day-one speed is not as fast as a core i

Other Thoughts: I've personally owned a handful of PCs in my time. On the AMD side: K6-2, Turion 64, Athlon 64 x2, Phenom II x3 BE. On the Intel side: Pentium 3, Pentium 4, Core i3 (sandy bridge). One thing that's remained constant in 15 years is that Intel chips will start out super-fast, but give 'em two years tops and they run at a fraction of their original speed. It doesn't matter what you use them for, doesn't matter the quality of heatsink, case size (or open air for that matter), they just don't live very long! AMDs on the other hand, typically aren't as impressive out of the box, but they don't lose what they have.

5 out of 5 eggsA4-6300

Pros: Surprisingly fast for a dual core processor
Decent graphics (not a world beater but more than enough for Video Streaming and light to medium gaming)
Triple Monitor worked on my Linux build once i install the proper drivers From AMD
Does not seem to bog down even with multiple task running at the same time

Cons: Not for Heavy gaming

Other Thoughts: Perfect for everyday use
would recommend for someone building an inexpensive machine for day to day use

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price.

Pros: Fast for a low budget CPU. I put this into a media center running win7 MCE with 8gb ram, 120gb SSD and 500mb HDD on a ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ board. It boots fast and works good for this purpose.

Cons: Not quad core and could use more Cache.

Other Thoughts: If you want a good low budget CPU the AMD APU's seem to be good. I ventured away from AMD after the problems with the Athalon XP CPU's I had. So after many years running Intel chips I thought I would give AMD another shot.
I wanted an all in one to replace my aging intel setup for my HTPC and wanted it in an ITX low power setup.
I am happy to say it works good so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: This CPU, or APU rather, will make you happy if you are going to primarily use it to brows the internet, send emails, and run light and medium programs. It makes a very cost effective build considering the GPU is built in on the die. You can accomplish allot with this APU.

Cons: If your going to run heavy applications, or do some heavy multitasking you may want to look into a quad-core solution as you will be running out of CPU power rather quickly.
It is not a real solution for gaming either, your going to want one of the bigger badder APUs for for a budget gaming rig.

Other Thoughts: You can get some impressively snappy performance out of this APU when pairing it with a SSD.
Keep in mind that the GPU is inside this APU and shares the system RAM for video processing. I would recommend at least 6GB of RAM to keep everything happy, and with AMD the closest solution is 8GB of RAM or jumping up to 16GB (I would only recommend spending the money on 16GB or more if you know that you absolutely need it for running your applications).

4 out of 5 eggsDefinitely Not a Performance Peice

Pros: Okay this processor has one thing going for it, it's clock speed. The clock speed is incredibly high in comparison to other processors I've had from AMD, but we'll discuss this in the conclusion.

Cons: Barely fast enough for gaming.

Other Thoughts: Okay, here's the stuff you need to know.
1. It doesn't hybrid crossfire
2. The processor Speed (although fast) is actually quite slow. Something happened with the latest AMD architecture that allows higher clock speeds, but doesn't really do that much more.
3. The Integrated GPU does absolutely nothing, couldn't get it working properly when I have a graphics card plugged into the board. Haven't tried it without an installed graphics card yet.
4. Heat - This baby get's hot, but that's because of all the extra stuff on the die.

Here's what I've done with this processor:
1. Mined DogeCoin
2. Mined BitCoin
3. Mined DogeCoin on the processor Core + GPU Cores (Actually slowed down the CPU for some reason - my guess was the added heat)
4. Played Borderlands 2 on medium settings (installed graphics card helped) but the processor caused the game to freeze on startup, whenever a new level would load, it would throttle to 100% and freeze. I installed SSD's to check if the HD was the bottleneck, it wasn't.
5. Ran F@H (Folding @ Home) and had to add extra fans.

So why should you get this processor?
1. Great for everyday use - as long as you don't push it too far.
2. It barely uses any power.
3. The heatsink and fan are noticeable, but work well
4. The GPU cores actually help the processor out sometimes, which is pretty neat.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect for HTPC

Pros: * Low TDP makes it ideal for HTPC
* Low Low Must-Sell Price!
* 8000-series graphics

Cons: * !!NOISY!! cooling fan
* Weak as a CPU
* "Locked" overclocking capabilities

Other Thoughts: "Almost" perfect because the CPU cooler is so loud. I am now shopping for a quieter CPU cooler which will effectively offset the low price of this APU. Makes me pity those who bought >$100 APU's only to find themselves shopping for the same.

5 out of 5 eggsSnappy, stable.

Pros: Booted right up, stable, good driver support. Pretty quick, even with a mechanical hard drive.

Cons: Runs a little warm, but it might just be the thermal paste not being fully cured in.
