Pros: Good low bugget, low power CPU.
Cons: It is a little slow for my tastes and the 50MM HS/Fan is a little noisy. I mean if I were using this full time it would be in a case on my desk and about 18" from my ears. See other thoughts for a HS idea.
Other Thoughts: I noticed the 70mm fan on the FM2 HS has about the same hole spacing as the MB mounting holes on the AM1 HS/Fan. So I mounted a FM2 HS/Fan to the AM1 socket using two screws and nylon washers through the MB and into the fan mounting holes on the FM2 HS/Fan. The 70 MM fan is a little quieter than the 50mm fan. But really need way to mount 80mm fan runing 800 to 1200 rpm to be really quiet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Haven't had it long enough to say.
Cons: MUST do BIOS update. Out of the box worked terrible with A10-7850K. Very flaky.
Spent two day trying to get stable enough to feel safe doing a BIOS update. Never got there. Decided to try BIOS update anyway using ASUS EZ Flash 2 bios feature (see User Guide section 2.1.2). Updated to most current BIOS. Rebooted, reloaded Win7 64bit, reloaded drivers, everything now works!
Now trying to tune BIOS. ASUS BIOS documentation terrible.
This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-25350 Dual 2.5" HDD/SSD Bracket for 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Pros: Works as advertised, but:
Cons: Hole spacing and mounting screws are for a 3.5" floppy bay. These do not match spacing on a HDD. So if you are using a 3.5" hdd bay this may or may not work. I was lucky.READ FULL REVIEW
