What's Up Yall!!?

AMD has sponsored me by allowing me to be in the "AMD Test Drive" program and sending me a complete APU computer build for free
I figured I'd share it here because I had 2 different build videos filmed for this computer and possibly another on the way as I further test the system and possibly add a discrete graphics card to it.
So far when I first built the system it didn't come with a heat sink so I used a spare Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.
The temps stayed decent at stock frequencies keeping it at idle around 28c-30c How ever when overclocked to 4.3Ghz the temps jumped quit significantly reaching towards 70c so I decided to leave it stock until I could upgrade the cooling.

The first parts list:
A10-6800k
MSI M-ATX FM2-A85XMA-E35 Motherboard
8GB 2x4GB 1866 AMD performance memory
Kingston 60GB SSD
Fractal Design 650w PSU
Fractal Design Arc Midi R3 Case
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Cooler

So here is a link to the first build video:

Then AMD sent me more goodies!

What games would you like seen tested on this machine, and or software. If I have it available I'll do my best to get it tested. and post my findings.

Thank you AMD for sponsoring this build!!

And now for the upgrades that AMD sent for this AMD Test Drive system.

Here is the Build Video installing the upgrades:

I'll be looking into adding a discrete 6670 and 7750 to test the dual graphics. I have overclocked the system to 4.5Ghz and the memory to 2133Mhz and noticed a smoother game play in games such as Guild Wars 2 and even Tombraider. Once I have done more testing I'll also see how well my h100i does compared to the AMD (ASETEK) AIO.

Thanks for browsing, hope you enjoyed and once again thank you AMD for sponsoring me with this build!
