Check your Mobos compatibility list before buying any CPU

Summary: An upgrade for me from an A4-6300, two more cores and double the L2 cache is nice, especially for the money. I got this over the OC-able 6600 because of a) price, and b) I was never going to OC anything. It plopped right into my MSI A78-E45 motherboard and booted first time no problems.
Summary: I've had this APU for a couple of months so far and is Great! it runs pretty well with most games running 720p at medium to high settings. I was able to play Battlefield 4 at 720p with medium settings and only drop a couple of frames when there was some levelution happening or big explosions.
Summary: For a 65w apu... lthis one really rocks. Just make sure to throw in some nice ddr3-1866 ram, and use the latest final AMD video drivers, and if possible go with windows 8.1, this chip LOVES 8.1. Very impressed with the speed overall.
