AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D AD580KWOHJBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I love the capable integrated graphics that allow intermediate level gaming and 4.2Ghz turbo mode. I can process a bluray disk from 40GB down to 1.2Gb about as fast as my 4000 series I5.

Cons: When used as a media computer, I had to disable alot of the video enhancements from AMD as they actually made the image more jerky.

Other Thoughts: I had already left this APU a good review. I just wanted to answer some owners having heat issues. I put this in a slim Minuet case with stock cooler and idle at 38C all day. When I stress test (handbrake) at full boost, I push towards 60C, but never unstable. If you're idling at 50C, you either have a cooler mounting problem, no lithium grease or a defective unit.

EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Ultra quiet and cool when it's unloaded, really performs when you load it up. The card idles along at 35C and rarely pushes into the 40's on my older games. Runs so efficiently it doesn't require it's own power connections.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I replaced my old 9600GT with the card to get with the 21st century. My home office machine is mostly for chores so I wanted to drop the ambient temps in the case when doing routine tasks. This thing is cool and quiet. However, when it's time to game, this thing ramps up nicely and plays modern games at mid level settings with absolutely no problem.

AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D AD580KWOHJBOX

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is my second A-series CPU. My first was the A8 and this is a really nice upgrade. I love the PRICE/PERFORMANCE number on this CPU. The A10 plays all modern games at decent rates and has the cross fire upgrade option.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I really like this combo. I upgraded an old XP MCE HTPC using the old case and hard drive for about $200 including 8GB 1866 ram and the new Trinity A10 CPU. The benchmark on that CPU is incredible for the money (somewhere between i5 and i7). The APU 7660D graphics are great for mid level gaming and the combo makes a PERFECT home theater PC.
