AMD Athlon X4 860K I use it in a secondary PC and it runs great, also overclocks nicely.

the Athlon 860K from AMD gets a lot of love for the budget conscious.

u/bitttttten · 2 pointsr/AMDHelp

> 860k

Do you mean this one? As for £65 I could pick that up quite happily if it helps. To be honest, I don't know what I'm going to stick with. The motherboard and CPU are the things I know need an upgrade and that's the plan. In the perfect world I would then upgrade the CPU after Zen comes out. And yeah, I have a Noctua cooler ready to go so.

Is there a reason why you asked about the FM2+? Is there something to look out for?

You could probably go even cheaper than that: the games you list have low requirements and could run off of an AMD APU processor, but you might not get ultra gfx. Which I assume is part of the point of modding these games, so I put a newish GPU in the build. LMK what you think!

u/patrikstar24 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Depending on your motherboard, you can upgrade to an A10 APU or an Athlon x4, which is an A10 without the integrated GPU portion.


Athlon 860K:

Resubmitted to satisfy rule 5.

u/Azagedon · 2 pointsr/buildapc

AMD Athlon X4 860K Quad-Core 3.7GHz is £57 @amazon, just sayin'. This is the go-to CPU I use on budget builds. Boost clock is 4ghz!

here's my PCMR The Next-Gen Crusher - UK spec @£215.

u/matthiasdh · 1 pointr/htpc

thanks for posting this. I've been researching about a 4k htpc and couldn't figure out which processor to use.
What do you think about AMD Athlon X4 860K?

its cheaper and it has about 1.5k higher passmark score than the pentium g4520

u/ObamaVapes · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I see in your other comment that you're getting a gtx 750 ti in a few months. I used to have a build with that card before I swapped for better parts. I had an AsRock FM2A88M Pro3+ mobo and an Anthlon X4 860k. That should fit your budget.

u/Krumzy1 · 1 pointr/northernireland

Amd CPU, fm2+ Socket, 4 core budget processor clocked at 3.7ghz, if you need anymore information heres a direct link to the processor

u/esalfaga · 1 pointr/mexico

Vale gracias! estuve revisando, crees que este cpu este mas o menos? y esta bien ese precio al que me lo dan?
de verdad gracias

u/Dewrevolution · 1 pointr/CODZombies

I went with this it's a little better than an i5 processor for cheaper. And it overclocks like crazy. I've had no need to overclock mine yet and I stream, record and have multiple applications running at once. My GPU I went with the cheapest one that can still run everything I want it to which I will upgrade soon. I have the EVGA gtx 950. It can handle pretty much anything I give it. GTA V max settings, BF4 max settings at around 80-90 frames. It's a good first build for the price I paid.

u/kc9gpj · 1 pointr/buildapc

What about going with an AMD quad core instead of the FX? Don't some newer games have minimums of 4 cores?

u/darkszluf · 1 pointr/linux_gaming

if you want to stay on your socket the best that you can get is the Athlon 860K and overclock it or even try that route with the APU you already have, with a proper OC it should handle the 1050ti decently but you will be set back in CPU heavy games .

the best way to get out of it is getting a standard GTX 1050 and a decent air cooling for your APU to OC it.

u/d33tly · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I need a price check on:

u/CROH561 · 1 pointr/buildapc

so if i invest in something like
would that be compatible with everything and will run properly with my hardware and improve performance a lot. and does it make a difference in the type of thermal paste i get? the last thing i want is to get it and have to send it back because it doesnt work

u/ChiefMedicalOfficer · 1 pointr/PleX

I use an X4 860k and I've been impressed with it. I tried it transcoding 2 x 1080p, 3 x 720p (4 internal and 1 external). Various devices: XBOX, Galaxy S5, Fire TV, Laptop, PC.

Worked fine for 10-20 minutes then I stopped them as I was satisfied.

Unfortunately not compatible with your motherboard.

u/Counterpartz · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

Awesome, thank you! I think I'm deciding on this
Processor instead, will this motherboard work with it?

u/wargghhh · 1 pointr/techsupport



It has a 4 and a 8 pin connector that are fastened as tight as I could get them.

u/Valhalla_I_Am_Coming · 1 pointr/buildapc

Yeah the 860k is a solid little processor. Just pair it with an FM2+ motherboard like this one and you're good to go!

u/RedTheTrainer · 1 pointr/buildapc

If your cpu is this one:

I don't see AD860KXBJABOX in the list.

u/Shikyoookami · 1 pointr/buildapc

I keep trying to post this but every time I do it it viewed by the rest of the reddit as deleted. So I have no idea what to do!

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)


What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.

I plan on starting up a YouTube channel for League of Legends and a few other online games like Starcraft II and Overwatch.

If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)

I want at the very least 720p with a very stable 60 fps for league at medium settings the least, but would prefer to have setting pumped to max.

What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?

My budget is $500-$525 (taxes and OS included)

In what country are you purchasing your parts?

United States

Post a draft of your potential build here (specific parts please). Consider formatting your parts list. Don't ask to be spoonfed a build (read the rules!).

CPU | AMD Athlon Quad Core FM2+ | $95.63 @ Amazon
Graphics Card | XFX PCI-Express Video Card R7-360P-2SF5 | $101.47 @ Amazon
Motherboard | Gigabyte AMD FM2+ Micro ATX | $49.99 @ Amazon
Memory | Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB | $34.99 @ Amazon
Case w/ Power Supply | Rosewill Ultra High Gloss Finished MicroATX Computer Case with 400W ATX 2.2 12V Power Supply, Black R363-M-BK | $56.64 @ Amazon
|| Total
| | $338.72"

Provide any additional details you wish below.

I really only want this build to be able to run League of Legends and also be able to record with no drop in FPS or in setting. My goal is to have it on high settings as well. I am a big newbie at computer building so this is a pre-build that I want to use because it is cheap. If you have any suggestions that I should change a part out or if I forgot something let me know, I'm only running 8gbs of ram but I might want to run 16 if it will help the recording while playing. Also another question, can I mix ram? Two different ram sticks of different brands? My guess is no but if someone could tell me that would be great. I already have a SSD that I'm going to have installed also but didn't put in the build.

Side note I do no know how to choose the OS. I want to go with Windows 7 but everywhere I look it's about $100, any solution to this would be great thanks.

u/torniz · 1 pointr/CitiesSkylines

I'm running it on this, with this mother board and this video card.

It's not the greatest, but it runs Cities Skyline pretty well.

u/AlexinChains87 · 1 pointr/heroesofthestorm
u/LunarD3ATH · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Alright, so if I were to have plans to eventually overclock an AMD x4 860k how would I find out what motherboard would be compatible?

And thanks for responding. :D

u/AwesomeName7 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I don't know if this is necessarily a "Simple Question," but I'm always nervous to make posts, so hopefully this doesn't cross the rules, if so I'm sorry. Also if I need to add more info, please let me know, I'm new to this.

I think I want to upgrade my CPU and GPU.

My current setup:

GPU: XFX PCI-Express Video Card R7-360P-2SF5

CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860K Black Edition CPU Quad Core FM2+ 3700Mhz 95W 4MB AD860KXBJABOX

I don't know if the rest of the stuff matters but here it is:

Case+PSU: ROSEWILL Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case with PSU, Steel Computer Case + 400w Power Supply, Front I/O: 2x USB 2.0 and Audio In/Out And 90mm Rear Case Fan (R363-M)

HDD: WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Motherboard: Gigabyte AMD FM2+ A68H SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 mATX ATX DDR3 2133 NA Motherboards GA-F2A68HM-H
Ram: Ballistix Sport 8GB Single DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) UDIMM 240-Pin Memory - BLS8G3D1609DS1S00

And I do want to say, that currently, it works great already. I just can hardly run the new Injustice 2 Beta, and a few other games, and now that I have the money, I'm looking to upgrade. I've been looking for hours, and I just want to make certain that these parts will work still, and that they are significantly worth it.

These are the parts I'm looking into:

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 GAMING, 2GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC) Graphics Card 02G-P4-6150-KR



AMD Ryzen 3 1200 Desktop Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler (YD1200BBAEBOX)


AMD Ryzen 5 1400 Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler (YD1400BBAEBOX)

So please, help me out, let me know if you need more info. Either CPU is in my price range, but I don't know if the 5 is worth the extra money compared to the 3. I believe everything will work with my computer. I think I want the 5, just sorta want confirmation, y'know.
