CPU worries me

Mr. Rufius, Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: I ended up buying this cheaper somewhere else. The processor works well except that sometimes it makes the computer bug out and freeze. Sometimes it will just restart.

FAST!!!SEXY!!! HOT!!!

  • Summary: This CPU looks good on paper, but bad in reality. Ok, not bad, but kind of a lie. This processor is pre-over clocked to run at 3.6/3.9 and this means the CPU runs HOT, 54 idle and it continues!! games lag out after awhile and things slow down.. I will buy more fans and update! I recommend getting after market cooling, water cooling or a lot of case fans.

Decent CPU, terrible cooler

Falco, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this CPU as part of a new system to replace my older Core 2 Duo router that was beginning to show its age. This newer CPU performs much better than the older C2D part, but it's still not going to win any speed award. Despite AMD claiming this is a "quad core" APU, it really isn't. It has two Piledriver "modules" that have some duplicate core functionality that allows each core to process two threads.

Easily runs at 4.0ghz at stock voltage but very poor thermal performance

Daviddewisphotography, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: First off, I just want to point out that I have used AMD chips for a while now. My 4 previous CPUs have been AMD. For price/performance ratio they are hard to beat. My biggest problem with this APU, is the temperatures. Even at stock settings without overclock, the core temps hit 85c with stock cooler and idles at 55c according to HWmonitor and CPUid. Thinking this was an individual processor issue, I did some research.

Zuwenig Platz, schlechtes Gehäuse

boyherre , Conrad
12 June 2013
  • Summary: Der Barebone als solcher funktioniert gut und ist angenehm leise! Aber: Das Gehäuse ist bei eigentlich ausreichender Größe schlecht konstruiert, bietet kaum Platz für eine zweite Festplatte und schon gar nicht für ein zweites DVD-Laufwerk. Und das nur, weil die Käfige im Inneren trotz Platzangebot nicht ausreichen. Es müßte einen Extra-Käfig für zwei - drei 3,5"-HDs geben! Der würde locker reinpassen! Das Netzteil ist mit 400 Watt auch kein Kraftprotz.
  • Pros: leise & schnell
  • Cons: schlechtes gehäuse
