Got this bad boy paired with ASUS F1A75-M Pro board and 8GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL humming perfectly.
It was meant for a low budget home system to start with. We ended up installing MasterCam X2 and Solid Works on it lol. Only for simple at home use though but it really surprised me how well it handles all that.
Had no problems installing it and setting up the heatsink was a breeze. I was worried since I forgot to buy thermal paste with the order that I might encounter any problems. Great deal for those who don't want to spend a lot but want a good system to play on.
Tried one of these out for a customer. Would normally buy a Phenom II quad core and a basic-medium AMD video card, but just got this instead. Made it a little cheaper and easier for me. I'll probably buy this again for similar systems, and I hope AMD can stay competitive with its CPUs.
Bought this for a HTPC that I also wanted able to play some older/less intensive games on occasion (WoW, TF2, etc). I set it up with MSI's mATX board and a low-profile case for a small footprint, since I really didn't care about card depth. Excellent playback results using all kinds of formats, fully capable at a variety of post-processing tasks. Gaming was also very decent, better than I had initially expected. I am also very surprised, my full system idles at ~30 watts, and my Kill-A-Watt says it hasn't peaked above 110 watts yet. All in all, definite value buy, I was pleased.
A very nice work of art from AMD. If your thinking of a starter computer and want great HD graphics this APU makes it an easy choice.
I tested the GPU for a while as an HTPC, it worked very good in this setup with perfect HD playback and very nice gaming graphics. after playing I setup the system for the task that I had purchased it for, making a video security system running the GPU on an ASUS F1A75-M PRO motherboard with 4 2 tb hard drives and Windows 7 pro for IP camera NVR storage and display system and loaded it down with 18 2 megapixel cameras on two monitors and used software enhanced video processing on each camera, it works perfect, any application that needs a strong CPU and accelerated graphics processing can use this low cost APU.
