Pros: Powerful, reliable, Runs cool (with an aftermarket heat sink, and Arctic Silver Thermal Grease)

If you need a budget setup, this chip is still amazing. 12/26/2017 8:46:01 AM

Pros: Bought this in 2015, haven’t had any issues. I run mine at 4.2, but it easily got to 4.5ghz, I’m just not comfortable running things that hot. All games run well, I’m gaming in 1080p so I don’t need insane performance to keep the frames at 60. Only game I found to somewhat bottleneck this thing was rainbow 6 siege, and even then it was when I tried to run everything on ultra with my 1070. High to ultra on most games other than the unoptimized nonsense that is pubg or h1z1. Multi tasking and running iTunes/Spotify other apps in the background while gaming is easy. Takes quite a bit to slow this thing down. Stays low 60 degrees with a hyper 212. Maxxed out load only scrapes 70•.

Cons: None really. If you are buying this, just plan on spending 20$ for a hyper 212 or comparable cooler, stock coolers need not apply.

Overall Review: Ryzen is probably better depending on the price at which you can find these chips, because having an upgrade path is nice, but if you plan on going budget for awhile there’s nothing wrong with the 860k.

More performance than expected... 8/19/2017 5:09:46 AM

Pros: Huge performance boost from a A4 7300 4.0 GHZ. Can play everything now on high/ ultra settings with my 1050 GTX 2gb.All 1080p high/ ultra settings: BF1 40+ FPS, Overwatch (ultra everything) 65+ fps, ESO 50+ FPS, Fallout 4 50+ fps. Great CPU couldn't be happier. If you have an FM2+ socket type and want to upgrade without a fresh build this CPU is for you. All FPS was overclocked to 3.8 (x38 multiplier).

Cons: Stock fan will not cool efficiently at x38+ multiplier, grab another fan if you want more power.
Shop around! NEWEGG I love you but this CPU was almost 50$ less on other sites, my fault for not checking :P

Overall Review: Make your low end system alright again!

For the price, this is an excellent product 7/8/2017 1:00:48 AM

Pros: -Very Cheap Processor(Big Pro, depending on the person)
-Easily Overclocked. 4.5ghz easy, depending on the silicon lottery; however

Cons: -Temperature Sensors ARE WONKY. They are a little inaccurate. I've had this happen with two of my FM2+ chips. Not sure if it a defection or AMD was serious about the ultra-cheap
-VERY HOT CPU! Be sure you get an aftermarket cooler for this, as this thing will practically bake in the socket if it doesn't have a decent cooler to pair

Overall Review: -I would only recommend this to someone if they're doing an ULTRA-BUDGET build.
-If you're wanting much more performance, wait for Zen; or opt for an i5 6400 or something in that category(preferably on the LGA 1151 line-up).
-This CPU is about the best you can get in the FM2+ line-up, so don't be hoping to buy this and find an upgrade path.
-For a 2C/4T CPU, this thing would get ground into pieces by the i3-6100.. But again, very cheap

It Processes 2/24/2017 12:46:39 PM

Pros: It was easy to install in my motherboard, and it performs reasonably well.

Cons: It freezes a bit, which was a little disappointing, but I can play demanding games and it can keep up.

The fan that it comes with is not the best, I have mine running on Full Speed to keep the processor cool, I am going to buy a better heat sink.

New Edit:
The freezing has become more frequent and its getting really annoying. I wish I had just spent the extra monet to buy a better processor. I'm editing my review to two stars.

Newer Edit:
Ive had it for about a year now, and the freezing has stopped completely! I guess it just takes awhile to get going. It's working great!

Overall Review: Oh, and watch out for the glue on the fan, I stuck my finger in it.
