GPU issues

RAUL B., Newegg
7 January 2016
  • Summary: not sure if it's a driver issue or what. I tried plugging a video card in and had no problems. I even tried a full OS reisntall and new system memory. seems isolated to the APU. the system powers up but there is no screen output from the APU.
  • Pros: powerful with an nice GPU
  • Cons: the GPU randomly crashes. then one day it just stopped working altogether.

Great APU for a budget PC

Henry Kim, Amazon
26 October 2015
  • Summary: Great APU for a budget PC. This PC is used as a home theater system, so no graphic intensive games were played. No issues aroused whatsoever for the past year. This APU does everything fine, from streaming videos online with very mild gaming.

Good Stuff

Eric W., Newegg
21 September 2015
  • Summary: SYSTEM: - A8 6600K - ASRock FM2A68M-HD+ - 8GB G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - SanDisk SSD PLUS 2.5" 120GB SATA - Western Digital 250GB HDD
  • Pros: - Overclocks well - Runs cool with the proper cooling system (I'm using CM Hyper 212 Evo; Idle = 30c @ 4.2ghz, Load = 55c) - Makes me the coolest kid on my block
  • Cons: - Graphics are subpar, not good for more than basic video and gaming; this is to be expected with an APU and I remedied the situation with a GTX 750Ti

Good CPU for the price

Christopher H., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: If you haven't already I suggest cleaning off the stock thermal paste and getting articsilver 5. For the 5 dollars you do see an improvement in temps though if your not in a pinch you might want to buy a better heasink as well.
  • Pros: I have had this CPU for a little over a month and I have to say I am very pleased with the performance so far. I bought this for a budget build since my laptop was finally starting to go out. I am not going to compare a desktop to a laptop since they're are differences but the performance improve...
  • Cons: stock heatsink can get loud under load

Great for the average user.

Mason T, Amazon
11 May 2015
  • Summary: The AMD Quad Core A8-6600K is a great started APU for the average user. I built a computer for my cousins and used this CPU in it, and they could not be happier with it. I do have to note that the stock cooler is quite loud and I would highly recommend purchasing another one.

AMD.. Never again

Varun V., Newegg
31 March 2015
  • Summary: I believe in the concept of the APU, however Intel HD 4600 for mayble 100 bucks more does better gaming than APU, plus the benefit of intel longevity that can handle a a mid leve; graphics card. This APU can do it too but the processor it's self can get really hoottt and 95 watts?
  • Pros: Cheap, all one APU for HTPC
  • Cons: hot, weak cpu.
