Pros: These processors enable a 16 core workstation at unbelievable prices. For any parallel, math intensive operations I don't think you can beat it.
Cons: The selection of motherboards and heatsink/fans is pretty pathetic, but I got what I needed and MrBayes is screaming along now.

Amazing Workstation Processor
Pros: It is unbelievably cheap for building a 16 core workstation. Nothing any OEM has even comes close. For any application that is pure math based (is straight up calculation and doesn't use extensions) there is nothing on earth that gives you more performance per price
Cons: Lack of heat sinks. These don't come with heat sinks, AM3 sinks aren't compatible and the G34 sinks are all based on blades. So I have an otherwise amazing workstation with little CPU sinks because I don't have any other choice.
Other Thoughts: Pros/Cons verse alternatives in its price range:
