Bent pin. 2/20/2020 6:32:57 AM

Pros: Nice CPU.

Cons: Bent pin.

Overall Review: Over, I'm happy with this processor, but it arrived with one bent pin. I went to install it and it wouldn't seat properly. Examined the pins and sure enough one was bent over completely. I was able to carefully lift it up with a dental pick and fully straighten it with a mechanical pencil. Installed it and it works fine, whew!

Pros: Runs everything but dedicated games at an awesome speed. Best bang for the buck.

Cons: Cooler coule be better.

Overall Review: If you don't game other than flash or FB games, this will do everything for you in the line of MS Office, web browsing and email. Nuff said.

Greatest Dual core CPU 6/15/2019 1:34:53 AM

Pros: I have bought 2 of these CPUs and I wouldn't hesitate to buy more. They drop into any AM4 motherboard, first and second gen chipsets. I have paired this with a B450 M aorus board, Corsair 3000Mhz memory, and a GTX 1060 3GB video card. I have tested the system with a number of productivity apps and games and it has performed surprisingly well. Best CPU in its price range, without a doubt.

Also would be a nice spare to flash a gen1 motherboard in order to use a 2nd gen Ryzen chip.

Cons: Memory speed. Due to the 200GE limitation, ram will not be able to run over 2666Mhz speed.

UPDATE--The B450 Aorus M as of BIOS F32 now is able to maintain XMP profile of 3000Mhz. It appears the memory controller is more dynamic than reported earlier.
I am currently running 8Gigs of Gskill DDR4 at 3000Mhz. Gigabyte is doing an excellent job of supporting this little beast!

Overall Review: With the F3 BIOS, I was able to overclock the processor to 3.6Ghz with no additional voltage. This maintains the 35 Watt TDP.
UPDATE-- I did some further overclocking and was able to hit 3.8Ghz with a modest voltage bump. I ran Cinebench R 20 at this speed and it matched a core i5 4690k in both single core and multicore.

If you're considering this for a budget gaming machine at 1080p, don't hesitate. Software sees it as a quad core, the hyperthreading is impressively implemented. Its cool, quiet, and the stock heatsink fan will allow modest overclocking with just a multiplier increase. I absolutely love these little CPU's.

Great Budget CPU 5/30/2019 7:49:47 AM

Pros: This is a Great Budget CPU, we were going to go with a Ryzen, but the lower price won me over on this one, as it's mostly used for gaming, the higher clock speed per core works great, I'm impressed....

Cons: It's not a Ryzen Lol

It is about what you would expect, kinda 5/28/2019 2:50:06 PM

Pros: Inexpensive
Low power draw
Fits AM4

Cons: 2 core "4 thread"
not powerful, at all
Vega 3 onboard graphics are "meh"

Overall Review: I purchased this CPU to use in a file server spot with some leftover AM4 parts I had. In that, for that aspect alone I would give it a good review. It runs super cool and uses very little power. In that is it superb for low power and small footprint builds. I was able to cram this in a mini ITX build and stick it under the desk. You would hardly know it's there. It will work decently as a web surfing box for very basic tasks.

It plays most 1080p content quite well, but is not really worthwhile to try anything over that resolution and rather recommend sticking with 30 frames. I would not recommend it's use as an HTPC for most applications. 4K playback absolutely cripples it. Dropped and low frame rates make the content unviewable.

Some people above have opined that it's good for gaming...maybe with the addition of a discrete GPU, but if you are going to do that anyway you serve yourself better getting a Ryzen 3 or better.

I read that it would work well as a Plex server and haven't been very impressed with how it handled that work load. My files had multiple player issues that required me to go back and manually direct listings to the correct file. This was not an issue I had with a more powerful proc. It cannot do any decoding of the video files. Works much better from PC to PC just using it as a "shared" folder so it's only doing an upload to the host machine. It works marginally well for Android/Smart TV type applications. It made a complete mess of my music folders and I ended up just having to delete that content from the Plex server altogether, another issue I did not have using a more powerful processor. One of the more nagging issues is that if you happen to get it to load a video that if you attempt to fast forward to jump forward to the spot you were at another viewing location will cause the player to crash when hosting from this box.

For the price, if you need a very basic chip and integrated graphics solution this will get you up and running. Considering the price and what it offers it's a bit unfair to judge harshly. It will operate but just don't expect too much of it. Be careful of the glowing reviews you see about it.
