AMD A10-7870K Godavari Quad-Core 3.9 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD787KXDJCBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7

5 out of 5 eggs A High Performing Processor for the Modern Gamer and Modern Games 04/06/2016

This review is from: AMD A10-7870K Godavari Quad-Core 3.9 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD787KXDJCBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7

Pros: This processor is stable at 4+ghz clock speeds and keeps it's cool with a corsair H80i GT liquid cooler. Energy efficiency and performance all in one package.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Using this processor in combination with 2 R9-390x GPUs I have run, for example, Rise of the Tomb Raider on a 4k TV with all graphic settings maxed out (and @ 2160p) in CrossfireX mode. The exception being Super Sampling (which is unnecessary to max out). The graphics were absolutely stunning. Same with Elite-Dangerous Horizons (without CrossfireX mode). Maxed out all graphics settings and running at 2160p provided stunning detail.
There was never any jitter or lag and the processor with Corsair H80i GT liquid cooling stayed @ +- 94F (inside a Thermaltake Core 9 Modular case). Peaked at ~45w under load. With power saving settings consumes ~11w or less.

I'm aware that the FX series can outperform the A Series, but I've yet to have any performance issues with the most demanding of games/applications and graphics using this processor/gpu combination.
The FX series, in my opinion, has no practical performance advantage over this processor. The extra (6 to 8) cores and the higher clock speeds of the FX series equals a greater energy demand, less stability under the very high factory clock speed (which requires fine tuning your BIOS settings) and the need for advanced cooling.

The A series is efficient and ready to meet the demands of the modern gamer.

ASUS A88X-PRO FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: If you are a serious PC enthusiast/gamer then this is the motherboard you want. This motherboard has proven reliable under some harsh overclocking conditions as well as thermal brutality. I won't go into the specifics, but this board can take what you can deal out. Using two VCs in crossfire mode with phenomenal performance from both the processor and the cards. Pleny of features on this board to let you control voltages, fan speeds, freq. and multiplier. The featuers just go on and on. Read the specs and overview. That's what you get and, as usual, Asus blows away the competition.

Cons: None

Corsair Hydro Series™ H80i GT High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

5 out of 5 eggs Your Processor Will Thank You! 02/01/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series™ H80i GT High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: Even with my A10 overclocked to +4ghz and under a load, my processor never rises above 104F thanks to the H80i. If CPU cooling and quality are a priority with your build, you need this product. The hoses can be turned as to accommodate virtually any installation position. That was a major plus that I wasn't aware of until I bought this.

Cons: None.
