Works like a boss

William Henley, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: Clocked to just above its usual speed of 3 GHz, this processor is running cool and smooth, with an idle temp of 3-5 degrees C, and a max temp of 26 degrees C thanks to the Dark Rock Pro 3 CPU cooler I have installed on it. Overkill? Maybe. But That's just how I like it.

Good Performance Boost for a low price

Komrad, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Great price Good Performance Easy to install Cons: None. I decided to boost the memory on my FreeNAS box since it service files and media to my home network. This Gigabyte A75M motherboard support this chip, so I tried it out. It's been running like a beast every since, handling request for files and video streams ( PLEX ) without complaining.

Does what I want it to do

Jeremy, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: It's a good enough processor. Runs quiet and can do light gaming. I use it on my home media server so I don't need a graphics card. Just kinda sucks that this is the best you can get with this socket.

  • Summary: This is a good solid APU. It does run a little warm when turbo clocked but I'd say, get a good cooler like a Zalman and problem solved. I'm running this chip on an ASUS F1A75-M motherboard combined with a relatively inexpensive Low profile Radeon 6570 GPU for dual graphics and it does everything I wanted my HTPC to do. Record and play movies, audio files and blast some sound.

If you have an F1 socket get this great chip while you can!

W. J. Cornelius, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: If your motherboard has an F1 socket, buy this CPU while you still can, it's becoming difficult to find. For those of us with F1 sockets, this is the highest end chip that it will take. I swapped out an AMD A4 for this a couple of weeks ago and the increase in performance is clear. This is an APU but I have the Radeon component disabled in BIOS in favor of using an Nvidia card.
