AMD A10 processor 7800

I'm currently building a passive cooled pyramix system and was wondering if it would work flawless with an AMD cpu. The A10 7800 has a very good balance between performance, price and heat so it looks very tempting.

I would strongly suggest that you stick to Intel processors.....The Merging FAQ has always suggested using Intel.
If you are looking to build a silent PC, check out the i7 5775c. It has Intel Iris pro graphics which is much friendlier to Merging (Masscore especially)
All the best,
Mark

It's nice but a tad expensive, i guess i go with the i5-4590 i can just handle the heat with my housing and it spec's almost the same
