CPU = 1.125 volts (BIOS) stable for 1 hour IBT (30+ passes)
NB/GFX = 0.975 volts (BIOS) stable 3DMark11 (multiple passes) and 3 hours Furmark
Energy use tested at wall with Kill-a-Watt (monitor not included):
Sleep = 2 watts; Windows desktop @ idle = 17 watts; Netflix HD movie streaming = 25-30 watts; IBT = 49 watts; Furmark = 58 watts
The numbers say it all. All around efficient little processor for HTPC.

If you have no plans to upgrade and are building a computer for office use, look at Intel's offerings instead. The Pentium G3220 is a much faster CPU and will excel in all areas over the 5400K asides from integrated graphics. The Intel CPU will have much stronger single core performance compared to AMD's A6.
Great Processor! Great Price!
I am using this CPU mainly as an HTPC. I do not have cable service so I do not use it for any encoding and I cannot comment on how it would do for this, but for web browsing, Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, etc, it runs fine.
Netflix on a Windows PC is, unfortunately, very processor intensive due to Silverlight and its DRM requirements, which actually keeps this CPU at around 60-70% when watching HD.
The computer I'm using this CPU in is running Windows Server 2008 R2 and is also functioning as a domain controller with a few roles (DHCP, DNS, Hyper-V with 2 VMs (Win 7 for remote access and Linux for a fileserver) and has not been having any trouble. I have not really tried too much with gaming on this APU but I plan on getting a AMD Radeon HD 6570 discrete graphics card to go along with it in the near future. This is the discrete card which AMD recommends to take advantage of the "Dual Graphics" option for this line of APUs. There are several models of graphics cards with this chipset available on Amazon between $40 and $70 right now and I feel like this would be a worthwhile upgrade should I ever decide to game with this APU.

I replaced my 2 year old HTPC components with this CPU and compatible motherboard and my HTPC idle power usage dropped from 50W to 29W. I think most of this was due to no longer needing a separate GPU card and USB3 card.
So I would recommend this CPU for HTPC and general computing usage. If you want to play modern games with high quality look elsewhere. Likewise if you want to do any sort of video encoding then this is not the CPU for you.
I just wanted a cheap APU for general PC usage (emails, internet browsing, music etc) and maybe some light gaming, and so far it has been perfect. I've been using it for a month now and have had no problems (for reference I can play Skyrim perfectly on medium settings, which was pleasantly surprising!)
The reason I only give 4 stars is because the fan is very loud. As soon as you turn the PC on there's no ignoring it; this could be annoying if you are going for a HTPC or something so maybe a different CPU fan would be necessary.
Intergrated GPU is well worth it, playing games such as Bioshock on full hitting around 40-50fps
Heatsink could be better and Fan could be quiter, but that's what aftermarket cooling is for.
