AMD A10-7850K Kaveri 12 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 8 GPU) 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7 series AD785KXBJABOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works fine with Linux
High performance for the price

Cons: Included cooler is small

Other Thoughts: Good bang for the buck. Paired it with a ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+ from Newegg for a Linux server. Works fine without issues, very fast. Running several VMs on it and performance is great. I don't need the graphics side of the chip but maybe I'll try some games out some time.

ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small size
Plenty of ports
Works fine with Ubuntu 14.04

Cons: Have to buy all the cables for headers on the mobo, nothing included
DIMM slots are very close to CPU, couldn't fit larger sized cooling block with taller DIMMs
Only one ethernet port

Other Thoughts: Bought this motherboard to rebuild a Linux server in my basement. Paired it up with AMD A10-7850K CPU and HyperX Beast 32GB KHX24C11T3K4/32X also purchased from Newegg. Tried to use a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (purchased elsewhere).

CPU and RAM fit in and work fine, but because the DIMMs are so tall and close to the CPU the Cooler wouldn't fit in, had to go with the stock cooler that came with the CPU. Will look for another solution soon.

Although the RAM is rated at 2400 system would not post at that speed, boots fine at 2133.

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit server loads up just fine (just be aware ethernet is named p19p1 by default and not eth0). Very snappy little system. Running KVM VMs, a lamp stack and some web applications with a 25tb ZFS array. I have yet to max out the CPU.

Did a bios update just to have the latest. No issues with upgrading.

Only had the mobo a few days but happy with my purchase. Would recommend it to others, makes an inexpensive but effective home server/NAS system.

HyperX Beast 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model KHX24C11T3K4/32X
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: RAM worked fine out of box
Looks good (?)
Inexpensive

Cons: A little tall, blocked use of large CPU cooler, check your measurements before ordering.

Other Thoughts: Lots of packaging (plastic trays wrapped in foam in a larger cardboard box inside another box with packaging), little bit of overkill.
These DIMMS are about 2" tall, make sure you have room for them.
Working in my ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+ mobo at 2133.
