AMD Athlon X4 880K Review

Product & Bundle

The 880K fits in with the rest of the AMD chips with the large IHS printed with its model number. The pin layout is of course for the FM2+ socket.

The included Near-Silent Thermal Solution heatsink is large, heavy, with a copper base and four heatpipes. The sheer size of it may make it unusable on some ITX motherboards considering it covers an area about 112x127 mm around the socket, I have tested the Wraith cooler, which seems to be the same heatsink block, on various ITX motherboards and the biggest issue is how close the DIMMs are placed to the socket, so you may want to consider this when purchasing an ITX motherboard.
