Works great at first, but stock heatsink is loud.

Pros: I got this CPU to put in an office workstation. Coupled with the motherboard I got, it allowed me to have three monitors without buying a graphics card that would otherwise be superfluous on a non-gaming rig.

Cons: Graphics keep crashing; happens a few time per day. Sometimes it recovers & sometimes I have to restart. Have kept MB drivers up-to-date, but problem persists. This was my first AMD build. Never had a problem like this with Intel.

The included heatsink w/fan is loud. It sounds like a weed-eater and it seems to run constantly.

Other Thoughts: Paired with certain boards, if you get one that works, you could get great productivity using the onboard graphics, but you'll want to spend the extra $30-$40 bucks to get an aftermarket fan/heatsink.

depends on what you want to do with this processor

Pros: if you are into surfing the web, light raster graphics like photo editing, some corel painter or krita, light to medium duty vector graphics like coreldraw, adobe illustrator or inkscape, desktop publishing, word processing and you want to run your copy of windows 7 instead of upgrading to windows 10, and 2400MHz memory is fast enough, then this is the processor for you!!!!! depending on your mobo choice and the amount of 2400MHz RAM your mobo choice will accomodate and your wallet can stand, this jewel will do all you want, it will even multi-task for you.

don't be fooled by those who wanted more power and more ram speed than their pocketbooks could stand to handle for what they wanted to accomplish. think about it as you read the reviews and about what they are complaining. if they had done their homework and had the pocketbook to support their delusions, you would not be reading the #@$%&*(!! they are posting here.

i purchased a ryzen processor not knowing that it would not handle windows 7. i didn't post the kind of #$%&* that you are reading here. that would be moronic of me to express sour grapes like that. the point of building your dream machine is to purchase the parts that will allow you to do what you want to do; and if you buy parts that will not allow you to do what you want to do, then don't complain about the parts because you either didn't do your homework or your pocketbook wouldn't allow you to purchase what you needed to be able to do what you wanted to do; dig it?

i will be purchasing this processor because it is a close match to the ryzen processor in speed and number of cores, 4, not the dual cores about what one of the posters posted. i don't plan on connecting to the internet except to validate my copy of windows 7. don't care about updates because once i validate my copy of win 7, the machine will never again see the internet. it's a work station not a toy!

Cons: unless this part is doa, then there should be nothing to complain about if it meets the needs of what you want to perform with the machine you are building, yeah?

Other Thoughts: would i recommend this processor? i've used both intel and amd processors and they both have accomplished the missions established for the machine i have either built from scratch or refurbished. of course i would recommend this processor, if and only if it meets the requirements of the tasks that you want to perform on your machine. do your homework. research the parts you need to accomplish the tasks you want to perform on your machine. within in your budget, start with a mobo that will allow you to upgrade to what the max capacity of power and storage you eventually want to have. next, your power supply shuold accommodate the necessary power, and then some, you need to run your machine. then you can upgrade parts as your finances will allow. unless, of course, you have the $$$ to build your dream machine from the git-go.

and remember, don't complain as you go. it only makes decisions more difficult for those who read your #@$%&* posts that don't provide constructive criticism about the part. i.e. if it was doa, remember, it's an electronic part and electronic parts are more likely than not to fail. if the manufacturer fails to respond to your cry for help, then that, by all means, is important and we all need to know about that. some mfgrs. are contentious about their products and are willing to resolve your problem. those that do not respond to problematic parts are those that we need not support by not purchasing their products.

lastly, not all reviews for parts are worthy of 5 stars, however, grade them like you use them. but also remember, he who fights and runs away, may live to fight another day.

cheers and enjoy your build!!!

A great processor for the price!!!!

Pros: Used this to build a computer for my son and it works great for his needs. He uses it to watch videos and mostly for doing research for school and general internet usage. I went with this processor because of the price and upgrading to a Ryzen processor would be very easy in the future if needed. He is using linux and has had no issues whatsoever and has great speed for what he does with it. For the money it is hard to find a quad core in the price range that performs this well and combining it with either a hybrid or an ssd will definitely make it a good build with decent speed. I have a build with a Ryzen 1500x that I game and do a lot of multitasking with and this processor keeps up very well with it as long as it is single tasking. My son loves his build and it certainly serves his needs well!!!

Cons: The graphics are perfect for someone who watches videos and just surfs the internet on a daily basis. If you are a pc gamer then you will definitely need to walk away from intergrated graphics unless you are on a strict budget and then I would say to save your money till you can start with an upgraded build.

Other Thoughts: This is a great priced product for the money however, with the Ryzen 2200g being almost in the same price range there is not much of reason not to go with a 2200g.

Great chip

Pros: Chip is very good and strong. Even without an overclock it still runs good. Make sure you have 2 sticks or more of ram for a better gaming experience.

Cons: Stock cooler isn't good for overclocking.

Great processor besides Newegg forgetting to send me one

Pros: Great processor.. the four I were sent.. Great performance if you can find cost effective DD4 ram you got a fantastic budget build!

Cons: Newegg failed to ship me one out of 5 processors.. The fifth one wont work since it was never shipped to me.. I am told "too bad" ** update below

Other Thoughts: **** Update.. through BBB help Newegg realized they may of made an error.. Weight of the package showed it was off and they first claimed it was 31LBS to send 5 processors.. Really only 5-6LBS since each processor only weights 1LB .. actual weight of the package was off under 5LBS and through evidence sent to the BBB Newegg agreed to ship the missing one.. minus ONE star due to the hassle but everything has been settled.

Good starter chip.

Pros: It will allow you to get into an AM4 ecosystem on the cheap.
Has fair game performance for light titles. Plays older games without a hitch.
4 cpu cores.

Cons: Slow CPU in compared to what's out there.
Will need to upgrade to a Ryzen to play modern titles the way you want once a faster GPU is installed into your system.
Integrated GPU has a hard time with newer games at 1080p.

Other Thoughts: Wish I went with an Athlon or Ryzen 3 and a mid-range graphics card right off the bat. Overall you can get by with this chip. The price point with with pretty good integrated graphics is a good balance. Once you want to upgrade, you will be able to upgrade to a Ryzen and GPU and that's just what I am going to do.

Awesome Apu!

Pros: -it's fantastic for 4k video/photo editing

-you can play games at 1366 x 768 with pretty decent frame rates and graphics settings. I tested Skyrim and at high settings (shadows and radial blur were low, no AA, AF x4, view distance was medium) I was getting 42 fps on average. Tomb Raider 2013, I got 33 fps on average with High settings (shadows low, hair normal, no tesselation)

-great for play games from 2012 and back, with decent graphical settings.

- This processor IS OVERCLOCKABLE! I got it up to 4 ghz. no problem! Granted I have tried 3 different motherboard manufacturers and only Asus Prime-B350m mobotherboard would overclock. I tried MSI B350 Pro VDH and Gigabyte AB350 and neither of those motherboards would overclock the processor.

-Great for a home theatre PC.

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: -Make sure to get ONLY 2400 mhz. ddr4 ram!if get faster ram. I tried using 3000 mhz. ddr4 ram and downclocking it to 2400, but PC would crash every time on all 3 motherboards that I tested.

Great for gaming at 720P or 1366 by 768

Pros: -cpu is overclockable kindof....
-runs older games from 2011 going back....
-best if used on a big tv at 720p
-great for extremely small computer builds with no gpu
-4k video and stream is awesome on this chip
-good starter chip to enter new platform and ddr4
-AM4 platform

Cons: -memory cant go passed 2400
-cpu bottleneck when using a rx460/gtx 650ti and up
-cant overclock the gpu
- sucks for content creation

Other Thoughts: the A12 9800 would be a small step up from this
consider this chip as a great "multimedia theater CPU that can happen to game@ 720p " NOT A GAMING CPU nor GPU"
A RYZEN 1200 or an athlon 950 at 4.5ghz and an RX550 or gt1030 would be way!!!!!!!!! better for 1080p
