Little but Powerful

Lorenzo C., Newegg
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for a HTPC, as of right now the PC pulls around 30-50 watts (have a watt meter plug) on average. This is normal web browsing or video watching.
  • Pros: Speedy little CPU
  • Cons: Speed could be faster, but then you wouldn't get as much energy effeciency.

User Review

Timothy Z., Newegg
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Gets 7.6 on the cpu portion of Windows Experience Index.
  • Pros: Low power, low cost quad core with high performance on tap (3.6Ghz) when needed.
  • Cons: Limited overclocking due to locked multipier. But you knew that going into this purchase, didn't you? Just think of the 3.6Ghz turbo performance as free built-in overclocking ;)

"News flash": Hasewells are hot. If you want ivy's temperatures, buy the S

Em, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I get ivy temps and sometimes even 10 degrees less. Power: Efficient, like.. You don't need me to tell you 65W max consumption is gr8 Speed: I don't feel the system is slower than my other ivy 3.2GHz similar system. In other words: it's FAST. When needed, it goes up to 3.6GHz at turbo. Hasewell's FIVR made temps go up, the S models are the only one's to provide reasonable temps. System is quite as the CPU fan (SilverStone AR02) isn't spinning so fast.

Bargain!

Philip, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: It's hard to explain what a bargain this CPU is. For the $200 price point there is simply nothing that compares. AMD's major selling point is that they give you less for less. Lower end CPUs for a lower price. This CPU out performs the fastest AMD chip out there and for a better price! What more can you ask for?

Fast, cool, quiet

Frederic W., Newegg
16 November 2013
  • Pros: Cool, around 30-35 C idle, around 55 C under load, not bad given it's inside a small mini-ITX case and that I'm using a stock cooler.
  • Cons: Locked multiplier, so cannot overclock, but I knew that before buying it, I don't want to overclock anyway, I just wanted a fast and cool cpu that wouldn't require an aftermarket cooler.

Fast and relatively efficient

Alex A., Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: While it's not the top-of-the-line model, this CPU is screaming fast. I'm using it in my gaming PC and I haven't had any issues running modern games. I coupled it with a Geforce GTX 680 and the performance has been amazing.
