Very nice processor and runs great for the price. I run it O/C'd at 4.2GHz and it's smooth.
A competent quad core CPU suitable for budget gaming
Under $75, quad-core, x64 compatible. Need I say more?
This CPU is the A10-7850K without an integrated GPU, and I must say, runs damn well. Very speedy and DTF... down to function. I can run Premier Pro without a hitch and render a full HD video within minutes. After some research, it's not too far off the FX-6300, a real big reason why I went for it. For benchmark scores, please see my completed build page.
I will state that the stock cooler is absolute rubbish. Without an OS installed, idle temps rose to 65C; I didn't measure at-load temps, but they were probably higher. The Cooler Master Hyper TX3 is a great reasonably priced cooler for this CPU.
If you want a quick CPU that won't break the bank (and are willing to buy a GPU), this is the CPU for you. Five stars.
Best bang for the buck!
Cheap quad core processor for the latest FM2 chipset. A good buy right now and leaves the possibility of replacing it in the future with a better FM2 processor when AMD releases one.
OMG this thing is great! Easy to overclock and just feels so smooth. I cant say enough about it. Want to build another system with it and really see what I can get it up too.
Best price to performance CPU on the market. I didn't win the silicone lottery which is a bit disappointing, but I was able to get it up to 4.4 on high voltage (1.5). These chips can take 1.55v, but it is not recommended for everyday use. I settled on 4.2 at 1.45v. No L3 cache is a bummer as well, but for the money I am beyond happy, although I have to leave a star off due to my bad luck with the silicone.
The perfect processor for a budget build.
Was leaning towards an FX-6300 at first, but this was a cheaper alternative that was newer, and had a higher clock speed.
