Not to regurgitate what others on here (and other sites) are saying, but this processor does, indeed, get quite hot. I upgraded to the 750K from an A6-5400K APU and ended up using the same heat sink as the A6 with the 750K because they are both basically the same and I didn't feel like swapping them for no reason.
As far as the performance goes, this thing is an absolute beast. I am currently running this set-up:
AMD Athlon 750K Overclocked @ 4.0Ghz
Nvidia GTX 760 2GB
8GB Super Talent 1600Mhz Memory
1TB 7200 RPM HDD
This CPU is, in no way, a bottleneck to this GPU. If you're looking for a CPU that won't break the bank, this is definitely it. If you're worried about upgrading in the future, consider investing in an FM2/FM2+ motherboard such as the Gigabyte F2A88XN-Wifi. It is both an FM2 and FM2+ motherboard which will essentially allow you to upgrade to AMD's upcoming Kaveri APU's (in January 2014). Hope this review convinces you.
REMEMBER: Make sure you are running on all four cores before you give up on this CPU like I almost did. This is indeed a Quad-core CPU with 4 cores and 4 threads.
I threw your normal programs at it( browser, skype, games, steam ) and had no issues cycling through them.
Great CPU that won't break the bank.
The stock CPU cooler is terrible as people listed above. Temperatures run idle around 50c and hit over 60-65 in games. YOU WILL have to invest in a new cooler. That asks the question, should you just buy a more expensive CPU hoping their stock fan is stronger? Given this cpu requires extra cash in cooling.
*****KNOW THAT YOU NEED A GRAPHICS CARD IN ORDER TO USE THIS*****
The jump to a quad core brought my build some new life! Very happy with it. Can't think of any cons, and anyone who considers the lack of onboard graphics a con should really be shopping for a different CPU. This is not an A-Series. It's not super clear on the product description, but just know that you'll need a card for this.
And for the price you really can't go wrong with this graphics processor.
So now I have a quad core CPU, an HD 7950 GPU, 32GB DDR3 RAM and an amazing gaming computer + server combo!

Be extra careful not to bend the pins if you do this is a waste of money because you have to buy another one for 79.96 story of my life oh well it does the job.Published 2 months ago by Mark
Note that you're not getting any onboard graphics with this CPU. That was a given when I bought it, and I knew it up front, but there seems to be some confusion. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Mister B
