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

Pros: Great speed for the price. Integrated graphics on this APU are a lot of bang for the buck - selected it for a art workstation for my partner and it works great! Adobe creative suite, Maya, etc run smoothly with no hiccups.

Paired with lots of RAM this is great for running lots of stuff at once.

Cons: The stock heatsink is simply insufficient. Doing minor tasks it would bump up over 90C! I thought maybe I had goobered up the thermal paste, but when I took it off there were no voids or separations or anything. It's little fan would be screaming and the temps would settle in at about 85-90C while under medium loads.

I replaced it with a larger heatsink scavenged from an older AMD machine and now it stays cool much better. Surprising that AMD would pair it with such a small heatsink like that.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to get an aftermarket heatsink and you'll be in business. Good chip once the temperature issues were resolved.

Pros: - Cheap
- Downloads and transfers files around the network at a great clip
- Stable thus far with DD-WRT
- DD-WRT install super easy

Cons: - Not a familiar blue Linksys unit... but hardly a con.

Other Thoughts: Got it to replace my faithful old (but slowly failing) WRT54GL, surprised by the stability and capability of this cheap router. Took up DD-WRT quickly and easily, handles four PC's, a Raspberry Pi, and a wii all quite well so far. Would buy again if I were setting up another network
