Pros: Low power usage, lots of speed steps so power usage isn't much above idle when doing basic tasks.
Completely fine for web browsing, skype, music videos, etc.
The GPU is fine for driving 2 monitors in 1080p for these tasks.
Cons: Idle power wasn't as low as I expected. Only really shaved like 15-18W off my Phenom II x3 710 idle in the same case (had all same parts, just swapped mobo/CPU for this chip and a MSi H61 board).
Other Thoughts: I'm using it on Linux Mint Nadia 14 w/ a custom 3.17 kernel.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Coboc 6 ft. USB 2.0 A Male to Mini-B 5-pin Male Cable (Black)
Pros: Worked as intended. Seems to be of decent build quality. Hope it lasts as long as the cables before it or longer.
Cons: Its a cable... None that I could see.
Other Thoughts: used for my 600GB External HD. Transfer speeds seemed normal using this cable.
Bought it to replace an old cable that failed.
Pros: Have had this since basically 2 weeks from release day!
Its a great chip. OC'd to 4Ghz on all 4 cores! Temps are great w/ CM TX3.
Blows through all tasks! My machine boots in 3 sec with a 60GB Kingston SSD.
Love the flat IPC, way better gaming performance than Piledriver setups. Quite a move for AMD.
Beat my 6800k @ 4.6 in some benchmarks (this chip running at 4Ghz). Better gaming performance too.
Cons: Doesn't OC aswell as Piledriver (but it has better IPC anyway). FGLRX for Linux (Linux Catalyst) isn't good unless you have an out-of-box linux setup. Any sort of a semi-custom setup and it probably won't work for you.
Other Thoughts: I use a dGPU with this on linux. This is my daily CPU. My work computer is the machine i use all day every day.
Mostly its used for office applications, development applications (sublime, Chromium, Chrome, Firefox w/ Dev tools, Libreoffice).
