Unlocked multiplier, decent price.
Runs very hot.
Cannot really overclock it too much, otherwise it would lock, only able to overclock GPU to 760 with no CPU overclock

Great price relative to performance
Lives up to expectations. Great for a PC that primarily plays multimedia. This APU can play games at low resolution. Price is great relative to performance. Haven't run into any issues (no over heating issues). I would recommend this to others and would purchase again.

Very cheap for a great processor
This is a great processor especially for a multimedia PC. It has great graphic capabilities that will do some decent gaming for being integrated. I haven't run into any issues with this processor.

-fast for general use.
-onboard gpu
-Had problems with a msi bundle on ncix.
Got this as a replacement for my moms 9 year old Pentium 4 machine. Had problem with a bad MSI mobo for a couple of weeks, then paid a bit more of a Gigabyte one and everything worked like a charm.

Great video for price
Lack of mobo options
Great CPU for its price and for a budget build. Plays some games on low-medium, which for $100 is amazing. Only issue with it is the lack of mobo options for this socket, I only found 5 FM1 mobo on ncix, unless another socket works for it in which case disregard this.
