Really good CPU, the stock cooler sucks, and it was getting too hot and thermal throttling, to keep its heat down, but when i stuck a better one on it works great.
It's only for my media PC, but i can run 15 GIG videos at 1080 with no problems, and run Saints row 2, 3 and 4 with no problems.
Oh and minecraft, and run the dedicated minecraft server at the same time with 4 people playing.

I have rated this product 5 stars, only due to the quick delivery. I have only used it to just upgrade the bios on my Gigabyte motherboard, to make it support the A10-7850K for which it did the job perfectly. As i was excited to try out my A10 7850k i did not try this processor with windows, therefore i have no clue of how it actually performs, I just know that the A10 7850K is amazing processor and it was worth for me to buy this processor just to upgrade my bios to support the A10 processor.

I bought this for a Linux Mint 15 HTPC project. It's reasonable for this purpose, but not the bargain AMD claims it to be. For Windows based machines this may warrant an extra star.
*** Review Update ***
With the price-drop and running Windows 7 64 Bit, I would now update this to a 4 star product.
