Pros: Excellent business/multitasking CPU.
Stock Cu/Al heatsink works well. I have never seen a real need to overclock this processor.
Cons: Warranty service
Other Thoughts: I have dealt with literally thousands of AMD processors. I have had fewer problems overall with them over the years than with Intel. They offer very good performance for the price.
HOWEVER, I have been trying unsuccessfully to RMA a defective FX-8350 since April via their website and by phone.
I've had two case numbers assigned, but have not received a valid RMA with return instructions. Most recently, a message sent via their own in-page service form generated an "Email Blocked" return email: "You submitted your Service Request from an email address that has not been registered in our Services Portal."
This despite that fact that I have successfully RMA'd AMD processors in the past using the same email account.
Pros: 4 DIMM sockets, easy setup.
Other Thoughts: Excellent features at this price point. All solid caps and sockets for an easy 32GB RAM complement.
Running an A10-6800k with 16GB DDR3-1866 and an SSD. Very fast system.
Pros: Low price for an 88 board.
Solid caps, four DIMM slots, good chipset. Runs stable, and fast.
Cons: None that I can see.
Other Thoughts: Easy UEFI setup. Windows 7 64-bit runs perfectly with Richland A8 APU and SSD. Runs cool. The four DIMM sockets are a real plus for Windows Pro and a 32GB RAM complement.READ FULL REVIEW
