Pros:

Ok this is an obnoxious processor, and we're all well aware of that. To all of you complaining about your CPU Temps: Shame on you for air cooling your $1000 investment. Running 12C idle 23C under full load with my Danger Den Liquid/TEC Cooling system. If you're going to invest this much money into a part, protect your investment. Watercooling is a MUST for parts performing under this much temperature stress, and if you have an extra $150 get a 226w TEC Peltier from Dangerden.

Temps with just watercooling were 28/40C but adding in the TEC droped temps to 12/23C. Don't let your processor be the only next-gen part in your computer, you need to build with all parts of the same calibre.

Cons:

Price, of course. Total rig cost: $5801. Worth every penny as I wont have to drop a dime for the next few years.
EVGA x58 motherboard (Plus NB waterblock) $349
3x GTX280 graphics cards (+3 waterblocks) $1652
core i7 3.2ghz extreme edition (+waterblock and TEC) $1385
12gb (2x6) OCZ Fatality $273
WD 1tb harddrive x2 $240
Powersupply, bluray drives, fans and fan controllers $1029
Watercooling radiator fans, ect. $604
Case: Mozart TX + brackets for tubing management and wire covers for tidy wiring $269

Other Thoughts:

Aside from replacing water on the cooling system, the occasional can of DustOFF and the electric bill of course, I wont be spending another dime on computers for another 3-4 years. people will tell you not to buy the best of the best as it becomes obsolete very fast, but take it from me if you're thinking in the long run, one big investment will beat out several smaller ones along the way. I used to replace comps every year or so and hemorrhage money for my workstations and gaming needs, trust me buying a ridiculously powerful setup is much more fun/effective.
