The AMD A6 5400K provides reliable and hassle-free computing in one small package. While its 3.6 GHz dual core chip is stable enough for most tasks, one would be amazed that it manages to perform in multimedia and light gaming applications as well; with an embedded Radeon HD 7540, it removes the need for a bulky graphics card. This is perfect for home theatre PCs and other rigs where you don’t want the burden of needlessly upgrading; just set it and forget it! Even better, it comes with an unlocked multiplier that can overclock to 4.51 GHz easily. For performance and value, you can't go wrong with an A6 5400K.
