AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1 GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Purchased for use in a budget home media build. Due to Cyber Monday luv from NewEgg including APU + mboard combo discount, was the same price as lesser processors!

o strong value
o unlocked / tunable
o integrated graphics
o virtualization support
o mature *nix 3d graphics drivers

Cons: No L3 cache.

Other Thoughts: Purpose is as *nix based multimedia system including occassional gaming.

Will update this review after preferred high volume cooler is again available, installed, and APU has been further tuned.

Build includes:
Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix 8GB 1866 Mhz DDR3 SDRAM

(reviewed those as well)

GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3H FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: o board layout is well thought out.
o lots of ports for everything (SATA, USB, front & rear audio, DIMM slots, etc)
o legacy & UEFI support
o support for next iteration of AMD APUs / CPUs

Cons: Noticed updated BIOS available, downloaded and tried to load via Q-Flash, error showed Q-Flash version was too old?!

Made a DOS based bootable USB stick and updated the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: This board is in a *nix based system. Everything works as expected other than temp reporting via acpi virtual. Working on drivers for new chipset. Looks like lm-sensors supports the Hudson D3 chip but not this one yet.

Other key components include:
AMD A10-6800K APU
Crucial Ballistix 8GB 1866 Mhz DDR3 SDRAM

(reviewed both of those as well)

Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT4G3D1869DT1TX0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Got this RAM at Cyber Monday discount, so great value for top shelf memory. Plugged into the Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H board, enabled XPS in the BIOS, and I was off & running at 1866 Mhz!

Will likely tune settings up once high capacity CPU cooler is again in stock. Will provide impressions & details then.

Cons: nadda

Other Thoughts: System includes:
AMD A10-6800K APU
Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Motherboard

(reviews also available on those)
