AMD A4-6300 Richland Dual-Core 3.7 GHz Socket FM2 65W AD6300OKHLBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon HD 8370D
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Low TDP makes it ideal for HTPC
* Low Low Must-Sell Price!
* 8000-series graphics

Cons: * !!NOISY!! cooling fan
* Weak as a CPU
* "Locked" overclocking capabilities

Other Thoughts: "Almost" perfect because the CPU cooler is so loud. I am now shopping for a quieter CPU cooler which will effectively offset the low price of this APU. Makes me pity those who bought >$100 APU's only to find themselves shopping for the same.

AMD Radeon Entertainment Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AE34G1609U1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * See review title
* low profile should work with lots of cramped HTPC case interiors and huge CPU coolers which impinge on RAM space

Cons: * cost per GB; competing RAM is cheaper

Other Thoughts: I chose this one because (1) I have an Asus F2A85-M PRO which is supposedly really picky about which RAM will work with it and (2) because I have an AMD APU A4-6300 for which I wanted (virtually) guaranteed RAM compatibility. It seems I made the right choice as this RAM has worked flawlessly so far.

ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Feature-laden
Sooooo many A/V ports

Cons: SATA port orientation
Did not come with Asus quick connector for case power button-to-motherboard wiring
Only 7000-series AMD graphics

Other Thoughts: 6 of the 7 SATA ports are oriented perpendicularly to the mobo which conflicted with one of the non-removable HDD cages built into my case.

Take note of the SATA ports on this mobo, what they will be adjacent to on your case- if you already have your case- and if there will be any conflict.

Also consider buying the Asus quick connector facilitate wiring the mobo to your case power button.
