Summary: Very quick CPU, runs very cool (with CM Hyper 212 cooler it idles around 35F according to CoreTemp), also very power efficient. Would recommend for a multi-purpose desktop build or even a small efficient home server.
Summary: Really surprised at the graphical capabilities. I used it to make a light gaming rig for my daughter. It has handle everything I've thrown at it including 3D games at low to moderate settings. Runs HD video with no problems. Was also surprised it's rated at 65w. I was able to buy a lower wattage, higher quality power supply for the rig.
Summary: Using it with Plextor SSD + Corsair Vengence 8 GB 1866 for wife's new PC. Boots in 5-7 secs after POST, shuts down in 4-6 secs, Outlook opens in less than a sec -- no time to get coffee anymore!
Summary: I would recommend this APU if you are looking to build an HTPC capable of gaming (on a TV using Steam Big Picture) in a small case. It is perfect for that purpose. I used this APU instead of the 5800K because of its 65W TDP, as heat is a huge concern in these small cases. With this build I have a pretty quiet HTPC with very good performance, I can watch Blurays/DVDs and online streams (Netflix, MLB.tv, Youtube, etc) without any issues.
Summary: I ordered this on a gamble and it ended up working wonderfully. On HP's website they state that the model of AllInOne I purchased only goes up to an A8. This CPU along with the Zalman CNPS 8900 Extreme heatsink produces high frame rates in MassEffect 3 and DeadSpace 2 on max settings at 1080P. I had to cut a hole into the back plastic of the All in One to get the 60MM cooler to fit, but the performance out weighs the ugliness on the back.
