A8-7670K APU 4Core + 6GCN FM2+ 3.6Ghz (3.9Ghz Turbo) Godavari

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have recently build a new *kids* PC.

I am really impressed by the performance in this APU.

The build is based on a :
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Rev3.1 (F8 Bios).
RAM Kingston HyperX Fury 1866MHz 8GB Kit CL11.
Samsung 850Pro 256GB SATA3
Western Digital Blue 500GB
PSU Corsair CX 500W
APU Cooler Xilence M403 3 copper pipes (6mm each) 92mm Fan
Case noname midi tower

The computer is snappy and feels very fast.
My previous build was based on a Liano APU dual core FM1 A4-3300

On default all settings.
The differences in performance are tremendous more then 100% increase! .
Maximum Power conception is increased by 30-40% compared to Liano.
Idle Power conception is increased by 10-15% compared to Liano.
Of course Liano Is Dual Core 2.6Ghz and Godavari is Quad Core 3.6Ghz.

Overclocking A8-7670K was a breeze.
Raising the Turbo multiplayer to 45X was all i did.
Also i raised the iGPU (R7 Graphics) Clock from default 757Mhz to 1Ghz.
Cpu NorthBridge default 1800Mhz to 2Ghz
Ram default 1866Mhz to 2133Mhz (11-10-11-34)

I haven't touched the Volts.
In Advanced volts UEFI menu i set the
Vcore,NB,DRam to Normal.
In Line calibration LLC i settled in medium.

APU vid is 1.475V
NB is 1.238V
Dram is 1,516V

Temperatures i used AMD Overdrive. Temps never were near maximum.
Ambient temperature is 23C
In prime95 tests it was 20-30C under maximum.
Using the computer normaly temperatures was 40-60C under maximum.
Power conception was increased 10-30% but this is normally expected.

AMD A8-7670K is an amazing processor that combines Graphics and CPU power
in an valued price .

For 24/7 I have APU to default Clocks all other as I mentioned above.

Kids loved their new upgrade .
Windows 10 with 4 accounts, family safety controlling the screen time
for all accounts, all accounts 24/7 logged in and NO considerable performance hit!

Games and Apps run smoothly web browsing is as fast it can get.

What is your experience with similar system?

I love the APU's. For moderate gaming and general computing purposes plus value and the simplicity of built in graphics I don't think they can be beat.
