AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8 GHz Socket FM2 100W AD580KWOHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A few things I like...
+ Good performance for the price
+ CHEAP at $89
+ Quad-core, plus GPU...for $89?

Honestly, it's a powerful CPU for the price, but....

Cons: ...some complaints.
- Runs SUPER hot
- Stock cooler is completely worthless
- RMA'd for a replacement...STILL ran hot

Other Thoughts: This is the second PC I've built around this processor. I was very happy with how the first one turned out for the price. The second one was full of headaches.

This PC build:
AMD A10-5800K CPU
GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3H Motherboard
(HDD, DVD, etc...)
in the NZXT source 210 case. Awesome case.

I installed the first CPU, and had heat issues...machine kept shutting itself off. Tried better thermal grease...still happened. Tried adding 3 more case fans. Still happened.

CPU's idle temp was sitting at 80, if not climbing higher.

RMA'd the thing, got a replacement...SAME THING.

I ended up deciding just to stop there and buy a new heatsink/fan. Went with the CoolerMaster 212 Hyper EVO. Temp dropped to 45.


In terms of the CPU doing its job of processing tasks...I think it's great for the price. I'm just disappointed that AMD hasn't come up with a solution for this line of processors (pretty much all FM2 processors) to stop overheating.

To me, it's an obvious plan: Ship the thing with a better stock cooler. They could save themselves a ton of RMA problems if they'd just do that.

Learn from my headache: Get a better heatsink when you actually place the order.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent! 06/20/2015

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: An excellent cooler overall!
+ Effective
+ Inexpensive
+ Lowered CPU temp by about 30-40 degrees!

Cons: Only minor complaints...
- Not easy to install (but possible)
- Directions were IKEA-style, picture-only
- Directions weren't really clear...went to YouTube instead
- Fan is loud

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a stock fan for an AMD A10-5800K. I knew these CPUs ran hot in some cases, but I had a good experience the last time I built a computer with one of them. Figured it would be fine.

With the stock cooler, CPU temp was averaging at 80 degrees idling....sometimes climbing to 90 and shutting the system off.

I RMA'd the CPU, and had the same experience with another I figured I'd just try a new heatsink.

Average CPU temp went from 80 down to 45!

Rosewill R519-BK - Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Price, PSU, Several expansion bays, CPU "funnel" to move heat

Cons: Front USB ports upside down, No cord management, Looks cheap

Other Thoughts: For the price, this case/psu combo is fine. It's nothing impressive, but it is everything it's advertised to be.
