AMD Athlon X4 860K Quad-Core 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD860KXBJABOX Desktop Processor (BLACK EDITION)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs does not run hot, look up thermal margin 08/24/2015

This review is from: AMD Athlon X4 860K Quad-Core 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD860KXBJABOX Desktop Processor (BLACK EDITION)

Pros: This is a A10 7850K with the GPU disabled and runs great.
See other thoughts for how to correctly measure the cpu temps hint..thermal margin.

Cons: Not 8 core

Other Thoughts: It does run a bit warm with the stock cooler, which is junk, but if you put a good one on their with a 120mm fan this will run cool. You also have to use the AMD over drive app to monitor the temp as these CPUs use a thermal margin to measure temps. For example sitting idle with a Thermalright AXP 200 with a 140mm fan my setup reports a thermal margin of 70, this is not the actual temp, it's how far you have to go before it will overheat. Under load the thermal margin will go down and be around 40.

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very quiet. Keeps AMD A10 7850 very cool.

Cons: Blocks PCIe slot on GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI
If you don't plan any every adding a discrete graphics card down the road
it's not a issue, but by blocking the PCIe slot it does hamper any upgrades.

SilverStone FTZ01B Black Aluminum / Steel Computer Case SFX, SFX-L Power Supply Compatible
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Super nice build quality. it's a great case except for the no eject button.

Cons: Needs eject button for slot drive or some means to add a remote eject to the case reset switch.
I would pay extra for a silverstone ODD that had the ability to hook up a eject switch.
No one ever uses a reset switch anymore and it would be perfect for the eject, I actually thought it was the eject button based on the icon above it.

Other Thoughts: I would modify the case so it could use a standard slim ODD so the built in eject and led would simply be visible.
