Good for something 10/30/2019 11:21:32 AM

Pros: It works, it’s a great place holder

Cons: Not very powerful

Overall Review: I was building my first gaming rig and I didn’t have a lot of money so I cheaped out on my CPU, I shouldn’t have. AMD over all is a great brand and when is comes to CPUs I’m team red all the way. But this chip is not made for games at all even with my beefy dedicated GPU games were being bottlenecked by the cpu. So if your just building a cheap PC for you grandparents then this is your CPU but if you intend to do anything demanding with it go Ryzen.

Great performance for the price. 8/2/2019 10:55:25 AM

Pros: Cheap and decently powerful. Stock cooling works well and I had no complaints from my parents regarding noise.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Used this to make a base system for my parents to get their everyday needs taken care of. It gets the job done very well and is probably a tad of overkill for my parents. Lol

Great as a file server with occasional video transcoding 1/17/2019 10:43:47 AM

Pros: - Price, about $75 when purchased
- Quad-core
- Built-in graphics chip

Cons: - Nothing yet

Overall Review: I got this to put into a Linux file server built in a full-size ATX case with plenty of airflow. I needed a cheap/lightweight quad-core CPU that would act mainly as a headless Ubuntu file server (but could connect to a monitor if needed) and this fit the bill. Traditional file servers require very little processing power, but I went with this since I have a Plex media server which occasionally does video transcoding. Most of the time it sits there idle (when it's not serving up a video file to Kodi in the other room), so I can appreciate the low 65W TDP.

I suspect many of the negative reviews revolve around more complex video tasks like gaming and/or video rendering, and I can't comment to that since that is not the intended task of my machine. But for lightweight desktop use like web surfing, word processing, and file serving, this is an excellent processor.

Worst cpu AMD has released 1/7/2019 1:42:04 PM

Pros: none

Cons: It went dead after a few hours after installing windows. PC wouldn't post with it in there. New egg replaced it. thie new one becomes unresponsive after a few minutes. It looses the mouse and keyboard. It often requires a hard shut down. I installed all the recent drivers . A Ryzen cpu works great on this board.

Overall Review: I have been using AMD cpu's since 1999 and this is the worst one I have had. It should be recalled, refunded. Maybe thats why Newegg doesn't stock them any longer.

This CPU will bottleneck your whole system 12/23/2018 4:16:57 PM

Pros: It works and can put out a display on my monitor and I only wasted $64.00.

Cons: Performs like my Pentium 4 did fifteen plus years ago. Even though it is a budget CPU performance is unacceptable to me to even still be on the market.

Overall Review: I put this on an ASRock A320M-HDV to save on a graphics card. Well guess what?! That plan didn't work!!! If your plan is like mine, same yourself some money and time and get something better (which shouldn't be too hard to do)!!

Works great at first, but stock heatsink is loud. 12/6/2018 8:24:43 AM

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.

Overall Review: 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.
