Quiet Cooling Fan: The included cooling fan with this product is advertised as ‘near-silent,’ and they weren’t exaggerating; you would have to strain your ears to notice the sound.
Screaming Fast Cores: The physical cores contained in this chip are truly impressive, with one of the highest IPC rates out of AMD’s line of CPUs.
Poor Overclocking: This processor is not designed to be overclocked. It is still possible to overclock it, but do not expect satisfying results.
