Really easy to install.
CPU is very powerful for the price and very easily overclockable with the gigabyte motherboard I bought.
The stock fan keeps it cool very well and is silent but its not loud enough to be annoying. (it depends what your used to)
I got far cry 3 blood dragon and Simcity 2013 free with it.

I should have given my build 6 to 8 GB or RAM instead of 4 as the graphics card needs some of the RAM and struggles in gaming without it.

Comes with thermal paste already applied so if you've got you own better stuff you have to remove that first.

Easy to fit to motherboard.
Heat sink provided is very easy to fit as the heat conducting paste is already applied - keep your fingers off it!
Heat sink fan is quiet.

Much better than expected even plays Rage! at good fps. What I love is you can use the built-in graphics to start with and you have the option to upgrade later. Great value for money. Make sure you buy the fastest memory possible as this will help performance.

For what it costs it is the best bang for your buck. Don't be fooled into thinking it's a real gaming CPU especially when it's priced against the i3, but as a media centre or standard home PC core, it really shines, not to mention having the decent GPU on chip means it can stay quiet and still pack a punch that would need an additional GFX card with the extra noise that would bring, which is ideal for a media centre.
a bit slower on single threaded apps than the equivalent priced i3 but then as more multi-threaded apps become common the same i3 will be dated rather quickly where this will still have a fair bit of life left in it.

Easily over clockable, built in graphics gpu , brilliant value , and able to crossfire with another card giving it an 80% boost
None I can think of

Bracknell GB
Exactly as you'd expect; an FM2 processor with a stock cooler. The cooler is nothing fancy, just a conventional finned heatsink with a top-mounted fan, but it's pretty quiet.
Performance is exactly as expected.
A little disappointing in its ability to be overclocked given this is the black edition, but perhaps with an OC-focused BIOS/EFI better results will be possible.

very good processor, i have been using this processor for about a week now and i can't fault it, i have been playing bordersland on 3/4 settings at 1600 x 900 using the onboard graphics chip. If like me you need to build a computer on a budget that will play games as well, then this is the chip for you.
None so far
