Summary: I recommend at least reapplying the coating on the heatsink before use.
Pros: The Quad Core does quite a good job on me being able to play a lot of higher-end games that I normally wouldn't be able to do. It does a lot better job than my older computer to say the least! I haven't had any real issues with it all things considered. The heatsink provided with it also does a g...
Cons: Upon first use, it does a good job. However, the paste on the heatsink needed to be replaced, as I noticed it wasn't keeping my CPU cooled It also had some prior bubbling after the shipping, but I did overlook it. After adding the coating for the heatsink, it did a much better job and reduced the...
Summary: Runs all games I have thrown at it in ultra including GTA V. Not sure what some people are saying. I have this paired with a GTX760 4g and it has no issues with games. neither goes above 60C while under stress.
Pros: Cheap, good speed, not made for modern games (dedicated graphics card takes all the stress away)
Cons: Hot - overclocked slightly in a very lazy way up to 4.7ghz with air cooler
Pros: The processor is fast and for the price you can not go wrong.If you run liquid cooling or even a hyper evo 212 plus ,you will get great temperatures in bios. I used three of these in builds and they work well.
Summary: When I planned out my PC, I first bought a amd a4-4000 combo with a gigabyte motherboard. It was the best option considering I was broke and that's all I could afford. Used linux on it for a while, switched to windows, hated the speed.
Pros: This chip is remarkable. I'm able to play GTA V and every game I've thrown at it amazingly coupled with my gtx 660. Actually runs better in Windows 10. Not what I'd call the best quality out there but it is deserving of 5 eggs. -You can easily run Niresh Mavericks. -Games run at a decent FPS espe...
Pros: Wasn't DOA, worked well for idle tasks like web browsing etc.
Cons: NOT FOR PC GAMING! IF YOU'RE A PC GAMER STAY AWAY! Amd processor have always been inferior to Intel in terms of quality for a while now. The price however was so good it suckerd me in. Can barley run BF4 and GTA 5 on low settings. I thought it was my GPU at first but no, its the processor not bei...
Summary: I think for the price, this is GREAT for beginning gamers. But if you want to get into new, more intensive games, you will want something a bit better (FX series) As for the graphics, anything more than Minecraft vanilla, you will want a dedicated GPU.
Pros: CPU is good for Minecraft or games equally intensive Graphics are OK.... but not great Motherboards are cheap Overclockable
Cons: If you are looking to upgrade graphics later (which I did, to an R9 270X) you may have bottlenecks. CPU is not great for more intensive tasks (video editing, games like ARK: Survival Evolved)
Summary: i dig my build enermax ostrog,ASUS A85XM-A,G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C10D,AMD A10-6800K Richland Quad-Core 4.1 GHz Socket FM2 100W AD680KWOHLBOX Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D,Seagate Barracuda Green...
Pros: the cpu is great for some gaming, will handle light duty jobs
Cons: i had mine for a bit but this cpu has my pc popping up warning : cpu temp 60 centigrades it has my mother board 250.f its a heat rising cpu scorching hot if you buy it will need better then the heat sink i think the cpu is good but amd should think about tossing a better heat sink in with the cpu...
Summary: I bought it for daily use, but I need to upgrade for video editing and gaming. Served me well for what it was.
Pros: It works - Not DOA - But everyone expects it to work Price/performance ratio is spot on for an htpc or low performance gaming
Cons: Hot - if used in an htpc, you need a more expensive heatsink to make sure it doesn't overheat, but it's expected with such a high tdp Per core performance is way worse than even the g3258 - not for gaming with dedicated graphics - it bottlenecks most gpus that are more than $100
