Pros: Quad core AM2....what else can I say.
Cons: You may need to reinstall vista to get this to function proper in a desktop.
Other Thoughts: all my scores in vista are now 5.9.... I'm so happy :-)

Pros: If you've used another phenom before, this chip runs alot cooler. At stock I could drop the voltage down to 1.1v vcore and vnb and idle temp would be at 22C because that's as close to ambient temp it can get on air.
Cons: It doesn't support 1066 ram natively. You won't be able to do a cmos clear on your mobo before installing it unless your mobo explicitly says it supports the cpu. You'll need another cpu to change the ram divider before putting it in or you will not be able to post.
Other Thoughts: It runs fine on my M3A32-MVP Deluxe, I'm waiting for the SB750 version of the board to see what the chip can really do.
