Bad points:
Runs very hot - will need to purchase third market cooling solution if clocked to anything abover the 3.8ghz standard.
Not supported by a lot of temp indicating software (AMD overdrive only reliable one so far).

Matthew, Norfolk 80's kid

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I had to change my 5 year old i3 board/cpu but couldn't afford the new Haswell i3 with a good board, let alone a quad Core i5. I looked to AMD but wasn't overly impressed with the A8/A10s as I already had a reasonable GFX card. I've stuck with Intel in recent times but came across the quad core Richland chip at a bargain price. I did the sums and with a decent A88X board was over 1/3rd cheaper than the i3 equivalent.

Easy to setup and performs great in Windows 8.1 and matches the i3 in benchmarks but with the flexibility of 4 cores. Noticeable boost over my old i3 540. Stock cooler, stock speeds I didn't find it that noisy or hot in normal use but others have complained. You'll need an aftermarket cooler to overclock although 4.5Ghz seems to be the limit on air where you'll be approaching i5 performance.

I think if you have the cash, Intel is still the way to go. If you're on a budget like me this is superb value for money and I can see this is where AMD really shine.

Bad points:
Stock cooler is just about adequate but useless for overclocking, and I would expect big fan noise if you are constantly pushing it hard.

This draws a LOT more power and gets hotter than the Intel equivalent. Wouldn't be as good for quiet media PC or 24/7 server.
