Pros: Same as before.
Other Thoughts: Update to my review on 1/15/15. Got it fully figured out now. In 45w mode the 4 cpu cores top out at 44w, all 12 cores use 65w in 45w mode. In 65w mode, you guessed it, just the 4 cpu cores use 65w. Under %90 load (converting video) 45w gets you to 3.1Ghz. It does run consistent at 3.5 Ghz when gaming in 45w mode. I think the gaming performance is more than acceptable (no aa/af), for the price and power usage the performance is great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works, will be fine for my intended use. Usually I have more pros but that's about all I can say.
Cons: No cons either, it will work for its purpose.
Other Thoughts: I got to use in a vesa case with a built in 80w psu, a poor mans all-in-one for light gaming. I know TDP is not a measure of actual power usage, but this is the first cpu I seen that actual usage exceeds TDP. In 45w mode it can hit 67w @ 3.2Ghz %50 load. I can verifiy the reviewer that said 3.1Ghz to get it to run about 45w. There really is a power tipping point between 3.1 and 3.2.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is hands down my favorite case. Just ordered my fourth, the other 3 power supplies are still going good. Very compact case. On one, my "cable box" as thats what it replaced, I have 3 drives, stuck the ssd on the mesh part with double sided tape and used the molex connector with an adapter, and put a 40mm fan on the mesh part with twist ties. the one I just got I'm using for a light gaming rig with a A10-7800 apu, probably going to gimp it to 45w. should make for great power to performance ratio. the first one I made for my mom, the psu has really been put to the test, has been hit with surges many times, it won't turn on at first, then I just unplug and replug it and it fires right up.
Other Thoughts: as others have stated it is extremely crapped, I still get nervous assembling them.READ FULL REVIEW
