AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini Quad-Core 2.05 GHz Socket AM1 25W AD5350JAHMBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good low bugget, low power CPU.

Cons: It is a little slow for my tastes and the 50MM HS/Fan is a little noisy. I mean if I were using this full time it would be in a case on my desk and about 18" from my ears. See other thoughts for a HS idea.

Other Thoughts: I noticed the 70mm fan on the FM2 HS has about the same hole spacing as the MB mounting holes on the AM1 HS/Fan. So I mounted a FM2 HS/Fan to the AM1 socket using two screws and nylon washers through the MB and into the fan mounting holes on the FM2 HS/Fan. The 70 MM fan is a little quieter than the 50mm fan. But really need way to mount 80mm fan runing 800 to 1200 rpm to be really quiet.

Pros: Haven't had it long enough to say.

Cons: MUST do BIOS update. Out of the box worked terrible with A10-7850K. Very flaky.
Spent two day trying to get stable enough to feel safe doing a BIOS update. Never got there. Decided to try BIOS update anyway using ASUS EZ Flash 2 bios feature (see User Guide section 2.1.2). Updated to most current BIOS. Rebooted, reloaded Win7 64bit, reloaded drivers, everything now works!
Now trying to tune BIOS. ASUS BIOS documentation terrible.

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Works as advertised, but:

Cons: Hole spacing and mounting screws are for a 3.5" floppy bay. These do not match spacing on a HDD. So if you are using a 3.5" hdd bay this may or may not work. I was lucky.
