    A truly lovely chip for those wanting value and energy savings. Make sure to upgrade the graphics driver when you install, […] If you’re not a game freak, but want a simple chip that runs fast and solid, and does hd, the 3500 is a good riide. Might want to try a quieter fan, but the one included does just fine.

    I bought this hoping to build a decent HTPC rig that could handle any media I throw at it as well as anything else I didn’t think of. I didn’t build this for gaming and have not tested the APU against any graphics-intense games.
    I was worried at first that the stock heatsink/fan would be too loud for an HTPC, but I was wrong. Even under full load, this thing is quiet and cool (I can barely hear it unless I put my head right next to the case). I think this is in part due to the fact it is only 65W TDP. Having the three cores is a nice bonus (would have bought the 4-core with 65W TDP if I could find it for sale…), but the three cores are more than enough for all multimedia, browsing the Internet, decompressing files, etc. Blu-Ray playback is butter-smooth as is all multimedia I’ve thrown at it.

    All in all, a perfect processor/GPU combination for a great price that does everything I wanted it too very smoothly.

    My HTPC build for those who are curious:
    APEX DM-317 mATX Case w/275Watt PSU
    ASUS F1A75-M Pro Motherboard
    AMD A6-3500 APU (these APUs are perfect for HTPCs…get the lower TDP ones like the 65W to keep things cool and quiet)
    Crucial 64GB m4 SSD (not really necessary, but the boot time is literally like 10 seconds)
    2x Old MAXTOR 160GB SATA drives (RAID 0)
    LG Blu-Ray Burner (not sure which model, I bought it like 2.5 years ago)
    8GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz DDR3 (for 64bit Windows 7 Pro)
    Enermax UC-8EB 80mm silent case fan

    This processor does “just enough” to make the basic user happy. I built a machine for a friend who only wanted to browse in the internet, watch the occasional video, and have their kids use the machine for homework and it’s been more than enough power for it. Runs Windows 7 like a breeze (although the system does have 8GB of RAM installed). I wouldn’t recommend it for heavy gamers or heavy multitaskers, but for casual use you don’t need much more. Not having to spend the money for extra graphics helps keep costs down and this thing seems to sip on power.
