Review Date: 02/08/14
Cons: 1. Some stock will not post with Kaveri. Needs older gen APU to update  the bios.

Pros: 1. 4+2 phase VRM2. VRM has decent cooling (combine with active cooling)3. Windows 8 secure boot compliant4. Bios features are the same as more expensive siblings
When paired with a A88XM-PLUS/CSM, unboxing the A10-7700K was like letting a feral cat out of a sack.Other parts: ddr3-1600, hybrid hdd, pcp&c powerThe A88XM-PLUS/CSM features all of the overclocking settings you could need. It also has the requisite cooler for the (more than capable) 4+2 phase VRM. tl;dr; I pressed the 'OC Tune' button in the bios, rebooted, and here's the result. Results were obtained using the retail heatsink and TIM.A10-7700K u 4.1 GHz, iGPU u 1 GHzIdle temp at HS: 37CAmbient: 25CAnd so began the benchmarking.
