This is one nice piece of hardware I bought at a great price!

Summary: This is just a nice piece of hardware for sure! I think that should sum it up pretty well! I have bought many CPU's over the years but I really like this one ALOT and I would recommend it a lot to anyone who want's a fast pc!
Summary: Also insert obligitory bad stock heat sink comment here. It will work (in a case with decent ventilation) but really if you want to make use of the unlocked capabilites do yourself a favor and buy an aftermarket cooler.
Pros: Great price for what you get! Used this for a build for my dad, and he loves the performance of his new computer. This will handle any mundane computer task and has enough oompf on the included GPU to play games (although depending on the game and resolution you may need low detail settings).
Cons: Not a big con since my dad will never notice, but this particular APU tends to never hit its max turbo of 3.9 even when under stress testing. I think AMD fixed this with the Richland APUs though.
