AMD A4-5300 Trinity Dual-Core 3.4GHz (3.6GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W AD5300OKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7480D

Pros: Built my aunt a PC with this cpu. I have used the Athlon's and Phenom's for a while, but decided to try this APU out. I paired it with an inexpensive asrock board and 4GB 1333 ddr3, made a 7.1 wie score. The more I played with it, Overclocked it, etc, the more I like it. If you up the speed of the ram you put in, scores go up. Up the RAM to 8GB of 1866 and you get a 7.7 wie score. So for the money, for mild gaming, photo shop, etc, works great.

Cons: No real cons, could have a nicer heat sink. And to be stable at O.C.

Pros: Works as advertised, low profile, good speeds. Managed an Overclock just a bit as well. Fit nice on my mobo and again, just work well for the price.

Cons: Coulda been a few bucks cheaper, but its good stuff.

5 out of 5 eggs Good bang for the buck... 03/24/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: Fits in alot of cases the hyper 212 wont. With a second fan, as this includes the hardware for a second fan to mount in push/pull and its a great upgrade. AMD Phenom 2 x4 965 stocker kept me in 60's, this one took me down to the mid 50's. Did NOT have to remove mobo. Works well, very happy.

Cons: Could have taken the middle heat pipe and pulled it in an inch so all three werent in line for just a TAD better cooler, but for $15 with rebate, 20 with the second fan, sweet...

Other Thoughts: I have spent a thousand plus with newegg since tax time on many different pc items, all have arrived on time, some early, all were WHAT I PAID FOR and a few, a tad more., I am very happy... Ya make me look good. lol.
