Does all it needs to. Low end processor but fine for my needs
This is a great processor from the CPU standpoint. The fan curve is aggressive and rangy, you can hear it kick up any time you use the computer using the stock fan. Temps stay within what I would consider acceptable for the build and usage. I see 34C during idle, and near 70C under the hardest loads.
The issue that I took a star from was the integration of the 4600 graphics. On my initial mobo purchase I could not get it to work both video and HD sound at the same time, regardless of what I did. Upon purchase of the current mobo detailed below I still had to find a Microsoft driver tool to locate a workable driver. Auto update and motherboard supplied drivers would not work correctly. I ended up using a dedicated video card so it made this a non issue.
