Perfect for my son

Pros: - Cheap and reliable
- Integrated GPU
- DX11

Cons: - Nothing

Other Thoughts: Bought for a PC I'm pre-building for my son, for ABCMouse, Minecraft, etc. Bought for $35 and couldn't be happier, since it's a decent processor for what he needs and I won't need a discrete graphics card (til he's ready to start gaming with dad). No issues on a few test runs. All the AM3 stuff is cheap so these are a great buy, though it looks like it's no longer available. If it fails, I'll only be out $35.

Great for General Everyday Use

Pros: AMD's line of APU's are great for builders trying to fit a rig into a budget. When gaming is not a primary concern on a system, the lower end APU models, like this one, make that job a lot easier.

This 5400K was bought for a customer who wanted a system for general daily use. Email, social media, video, and general web surfing. No gaming other than flash and the occasional casino style game. And it works flawlessly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Running alone with the on-board 7540D GPU only, no discrete graphics card.

Still going strong after a year of daily use.

Overall well satisfied

Pros: Price
Performs the job that I purchased it for

Cons: Nothing really

Other Thoughts: This was my very first build a year ago. My nephew wanted to build a gaming computer and I wanted to build a media server, so we built mine first because if we fouled up it wouldn't cost as much to fix our stupidity and ignorance. Now that it's been a year I can say with little hesitation that I'm extremely pleased with the outcome.

It's intended purpose was to be a Plex Media Server for my Roku using Ubuntu as the operating system. Cheap budget build to get my feet wet and have stumbled upon an addiction that I can't seem to get myself out of. This runs all the time with some occasional shutdowns when I'm away from home for more than a full day.

I've noticed some occasional bottlenecks when transferring large files from the the Hard Drive to a Flash Drive, but don't know the cause of it. My only regret is that I got a dual core and not a quad core because it does take much longer to convert video files to MP4 using Handbrake than it does my i5 quad core. But as stated, it was intended to be a budget build to get our feet wet and try something new

Best bang for the buck

Pros: Can barely handle fallout 4, but it can. Have the cpu overclocked to 4.1ghz without increasing voltage, gpu overclocked to 894hz without increasing voltage. Running ddr3 2133 8 gigs to help it, i HIGHLY recommend giving it only 1gig of the ram instead of 2. For some reason I get 20% performance boost with only 1 instead of 2 gigs.

Cons: None for that price,

Other Thoughts: I see its out of stock, hope they bring it back for fellow budgters,

It's a $35 dual core CPU. Meets and can exceed the manufacturer's specifications.

Pros: Most FM2 class AMD CPU's in this range have been discounted. Not the top of the line, but price versus performance needs a second look for the budget conscience. A good general build option on a budget! IMO. I'm not a gamer nor do I overclock anything, so to me a CPU is just that. It meets or exceeds its design specifications. This one seems to do that. When paired with the right MB you can build a proper general purpose system that should last a decade or so.

Cons: It isn't a $500 CPU

Other Thoughts: For people who build rather than pay OEM's $500+ for a finished product. With the money you save with this CPU. Pay more back with a good MB.

Great little proc.

Pros: I have two of these, and they are great for just general computing for the family. Matched with a micro mb and some good ram, and you have a really nice inexpensive computer. Runs Win. 10 without issue. For the price you really can't say anything.

Cons: It's not a Quad core, but for thirty bucks who"s complaining.

Other Thoughts: This is a great proc. for teaching computer building to your son or daughter. The graphics are pretty good too. Using it to run older games, and flight sims.

Great little chip

Pros: Budget friendly, it performs like a champ

Cons: Stock heatsink is garbage (intels are too)

Other Thoughts: Got as part of a black friday kit becausei wanted a small htpc. 200$ plus 130 for windows 10 and this thing is snappier than my core i7 920 on an evga classified. Will definitely consider future amd chips.

Good value for basic computing.

Pros: This is a great little unit for basic computing and maybe even some mild gaming if you like to play older games. I purchased this for a family member that needed a PC for basic tasks like excel, word, internet browsing, etc. To my surprise it will actually play some last gen games, like Torchlight and some others, reasonably well. Overall the entire build was <$200 and outperformed all of my expectations.

-2 cores for efficient multitasking.
-IGPU isn't totally terrible but don't expect to run new AAA titles on it by any means.
-Only 65W TDP.
-Overclockable.(Read other comments)
-Inexpensive.
-Comes with a cooler.

Cons: -Stock cooler isn't great but that's par for the course.

Other Thoughts: For the price, you really can't beat this if you just need something basic. There are options with this socket to upgrade as well so if you end up needing more, you have that option.

As for overclocking, I didn't bother finding the maximum overclock since it was such a basic build so I let AMD Overdrive auto-tune it. To my surprise it wanted to do 4.4Ghz on the stock cooler however the thermal margin was very low. I was satisfied with that clock so I grabbed an old cooler I had laying around with heat pipes and a 120mm fan, slapped it on and the thermal margin was much better. If you plan to push this chip for whatever reasons you may have, definitely look at a better cooler. It doesn't need anything drastic because of the low TDP but the stock one is a little iffy once you start adding voltage.
