AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz and 4.2GHz

AMD A8-5600K - A-Series APU Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W AMD Radeon HD 7560D Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic - AD560KWOHJBOX
AMD A8-5600K - A-Series APU Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W AMD Radeon HD 7560D Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic - AD560KWOHJBOX

Pros: + Very fast + With water-cooler it never rises above 100*F (and that is with VERY extensive non-stop use of high demanding programs)

Cons: + Price? But hey, you get what you pay for, right?

Overall Review: I have purchased 3 of these models so far. One of the 3.9GHz and two of the 4.2GHz. The 4.2GHz have been running the the following setup: Windows 7 Pro 32 GB Ram 1TB Overclocked to 4.7GHz Water-cooled These computers are used to run geological graphing data programs, as well as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Office 2010 and pulling data from our server every day non stop for almost a year. Not one problem so far, and the best part, no lag! I have worked with both Intel and AMD. While at one point I would have said Intel won out, these machines have really took the cake. ____________________________________________ The 3.9 GHz processor is being used in this configuration as a server. Ubuntu Server 14.04 16 GB Ram 16TB (4 x 4TB Hard Drive) Processor overclocked to 4.2GHz Water-cooled This machine has been running for a few weeks now, nonstop and has not had any problems. Everything transfers quick, and as stated before, I am very satisfied with these processors. For the money, they are probably the best you can get!

ASUS A55BM-PLUS/CSM FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS A55BM-PLUS/CSM FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Awesome board. * Good room for a small board. * up to 64 GB ram (yeah right... nice joke)

Cons: * No usb3 on board pins * Supports up to 64GB ram on NON-ECC ram, which can only go up to 8GB a stick. They do not specify NON-ECC, so i thought ECC would be fine (sometimes they are in higher end motherboards). NOPE! that was a $546 investment gone WAY wrong. and then about $100 more to send it back to newegg with the restocking fee. Really, this motherboard can ONLY support up to 32GB ram (4 slots of 8GB) simply because the only ram you can buy that is 16GB Sticks are ECC. Maybe it can go up to 64GB ram, but not in todays market where 64GB of NON-ECC doesnt exist!

Overall Review: Still a good board... but darn, do your research before pressing the buy button

Duh

Pros: I have bought probably 30 of these in the past 2 years. They are awesome, positively the best drive you can get. Yes, you will get some that are DOA. Sorry, tough, that is just how hard drives are. They are not IF they die, it is WHEN they die. You get a few duds, get over it. Over all, awesome performance. I never get any other kind of HDD other than these.

Cons: 2/20 were DOA 10% - not bad

Pros: I have bought like 20 of these things. All of them still truckin'. Probably will for another 10 years.

Awesome Processor

Pros: I have bought three of these now and everyone of them is awesome. With the built in 6 GPU's you dont need a high end video card to do the job. Games render soooo far. It makes my Xbox360 look like an old Nintendo 64. Just WOW! Oh, one thing, you NEED a watercooler for this. If you dont get one then you are pretty much burning (literately) your money. The one I have used in all three builds is here. Works great, easy install, and only $40 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103195

Cons: newegg is requiring a con... It would be so Awesome if it could brew me some coffee

Works Great!
