General information

The AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini is a budget-friendly, low-power System on Chip (SoC) processor that incorporates CPU, GPU and I/O controller in a single package. This eliminates the need of a dedicate chipset on its counterpart motherboard, which further helps to keep the total cost of the build to a minimum. Based on Jaguar microarchitecture, the Athlon 5350 packs four computing cores and 128 Stream Processing Units, delivering impressive performance at mere 25W TDP. Plus, due to the AM1 socket, instead of soldering to motherboard like other low power processor, you'll have the ability and flexibility to upgrade to a higher end model when available.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: I used this CPU for an HTPC which I also use as an HTTP server, Samba Server, and MySQL server. I will literally be watching Netflix movies (with Chrome on Ubuntu 12.04), Querying the SQL server, and transferring files with absolutely no problems at all.

This guy is the best. I paired it with an ASRock AM1H-ITX and it's one of the most reliable builds I have ever made. The graphics drivers for Linux are solid. I use the proprietary one.

low power, and possibly (I don't have the data) one of the best performance to cost ratios on the market for any CPU.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have a separate build for gaming and and heavy numerical calculations. If you use this for anything beyond an HTPC or home cloud, you are obviously a half-wit. No 25W 2GHz CPU will give you what you need. But for what I use it for, it's amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Great low-power quad core APU. I installed on MSI AM-1 motherboard, works perfect. In your BIOS set minimum temp. fan speed at the lowest available and choose 12.5% and the stock CPU fan will run at 750-800 RPM's and be very quiet and keep things cool. Otherwise, the default on most boards is 100% CPU fan speed - so do your homework and the fan will be quiet and the processor cool.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Makes for a great Mini ITX build for small and quiet yet capable desktop or HTPC system.

5 out of 5 eggsmy little standby unit.

Pros: Low price, Low power,And works just fine boots in half the time that my win 10 machine does

Cons: Its a little easy to overload but thats about the only minus.

Other Thoughts: I put this in a mini itx build that i did just to have a low power unit for general use and it fills the bill nicely. specs 5350 cpu ecs KAM1-I mb 4 gb corsair ddr3 1600 ocz 120 gb ssd and a diypc mini itx case and an old 200 w psu i had stuffed in drawer 20pin but an adapter fixed that.running it with a asus 23.7" led monitor

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for a basic ESXi server

Pros: - Runs my 4 Ubuntu Server VMs under ESXi with no hassle
- Low power. With my SSD, 16GB of RAM and case fan, I use about 75 watts.
- CPU temps with stock cooler are around 20C

Cons: - The heatsink fan is rather loud, it's not screaming, but enough to where you can hear a low hum when watching tv or listening to music. Will be upgrading to aftermarket cooler. Reminds me of a game console.
- Heatsink push pins were rather annoying to mount. One end popped out as I pressed the other end in. I ended up having to press the top of the heatsink down, while using my other hand to push the pins into the board. Pressure level while pushing into board was concerning.

Other Thoughts: I primarily created this build to replace my 1st gen always on i7 esx server that was sucking entirely too much power for a simple network server. This AM1 proc replaces it and runs 4 VMs, a Ubuntu LAMP server, Ubuntu DNS/DHCP server, VPN Server and a pfSense firewall very well.

5 out of 5 eggs25 watt berserker

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bang for the Buck

Pros: Picked this up in a combo with mobo and ran for 4 office computers and I have to say at such a small price the what it can deliver is impressive if your expecting 4K gaming out of this go look else where. But if you want a budget build with modest gains for 50$ bucks you ant go wrong. And it's a quad core

Cons: You get what you pay for so its a great office build but will need a dedicated GPU to really run any AA title games

Other Thoughts: Don't negatively review something that you failed to research yourself

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little CPU!

Pros: Compare vs any Intel CPU at the same price-point and it wins hands-down. Very great vs Intel in perf/watt at same price point. Has all the deluxe instructions enabled such as VT-d, AES256, etc. Using this as an ESXi 6.0 box for firewall and NAS at home. Supposedly overclocks like a beast, but I haven't tried yet.

Cons: Comes with a fairly small, quiet fan. Certainly would be inadequate for any amount of overclocking.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid APU

Pros: - Low Power Consumption
- Low Heat
- Onboard R3 Graphics

Cons: - Low Processing Power

Other Thoughts: I have purchased two of these APUs for use with Mini ITX systems. One running Windows with the purpose of a Media Server that is always on and a second running Linux for a Desktop.

The Windows Media Server experiences no frame rate dropping or skipping when using the on board graphics to output 4k videos over HDMI. I have also not experienced any lag streaming media over the onboard NIC locally or over the internet using Plex.

The Linux Mini ITX Deskop runs Linux Cinnamon Mint 17.3 and uses the on board graphics to output dual 1080p monitors. I use this desktop for programming and I have no complaints for speed or responsiveness for this usage.

This APU includes a very small and quiet fan and heat sink, which keeps this APU at below 30 C under load.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this little kitty cat.

Pros: -Based on AMD's low power Jaguar architecture, Kabini
-Low power
-Reasonable performance
-Cheap for a quad core

Cons: -Not a core i3?
-Cant make you a sandwich...unless....

Other Thoughts: -Dont expect massive performance but with a discrete GPU you can do light gaming.
-Im running this with the ASROCK AM1H-ITX and a 19V laptop power brick and i love it.
-Sucks nothing from the wall, with an SSD and 8GB of ram i average less than 35 watts from the wall under idle less than 8! >:P
