Pros:

Fast for sure. My BlueRay encodes now take 4 hours instead of 14 hours on my E8400 at 3.6Ghz. I'm seeing a 40% reduction in DVD Shrink speeds. Programs open in the blink of eye. I'm running at 3.8Ghz with the base clock at 181mhz and Turbo on equaling 3.8Ghz. All my settings are default except Northbridge freqeuncy which I set at 3000mhz. 3.8Ghz at stock settings,amazing.

Cons:

Of course the Intel HSF

Other Thoughts:

I initially used the stock fan,I cut off the Intel fan and replaced it with a 3000RPM 95mm fan, Idle temp was 32C and low 50's on moderate load. I did replace it with a Coolmaster N520,idle speed remained 32C,but load temps went down 5-6C. I turned off Hyperthreading because it did not seem to improve speed with the programs I use. HT greatly increases temps. On moderate loads HT adds 10-15C,on heavy loads it adds 15-25C to individual core temps. My CPU temps went to the high 50's under heavy load with HT on,with HT off my heavy load temps are in the high 40's.
