AMD A10-7700K Kaveri 10 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 6 GPU) 3.5GHz Socket FM2+ 95W Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7 series AD770KXBJABOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Great performance
-Excellent APU
-Best Budget builder available
-Finished system scored a 270 in Solid Works Benchmark

Cons: None, maybe a better heatsink, but a good case can compensate.

Other Thoughts: Anonymous said he wouldn't use this as a workstation, but the Solid Works score is very high, comparable to an i7 with a gaming GC. Of course a workstation card like the nvidia Quadro would be better than an APU, but you could add one to any build. For a budget minded consumer trying to edit video, this thing is the best you can get for under $1000 for a complete build. Haven't benchmarked it for video editing, but paired with an SSD and 16gb of ram, I'm sure it will be a screamer.

GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Wifi can be used as router
-Great quality
-2 hdmi and a dvi
-Great layout
It's a motherboard and it works, what more can i say?

Cons: Had a problem with the video not being detected when the monitor is switched. I have built 2 of these and only happened on one, so may not be true for all.

Other Thoughts: I have been building custom computers for engineering and movie and television studios for many years. I have never had a motherboard come DOA, usually it is a problem with the installation that creates problems. Always check that your offsets are in the right position and there are no extras on the case. An extra offset can ground the board, I have seen numerous builds from amateurs where there is and offset grounding the board and they complain that it was DOA multiple times.
If the board failed quickly, check that you are using a quality PSU. The cheap ones tend to fry boards, may not happen today but it will happen.
The two builds I am writing this review for are outstanding performers. One scored a 270 on the solid works benchmark with A-10 7700 R7 integrated graphics! I used a samsung 840 SSD for all programs and installed 16GB of Ram. Total cost of the build was $750 and performs at a similar level to my $2200 work desktop. I absolutely recommend this MOBO for the budget minded system builder that may want to upgrade in the future and doesn't want a giant ATX build.
