Pros:

This processor is lightning fast at stock clocks. To give you an idea, I've had ventrilo, mumble, mozilla with about 5-6 windows open, and a game running without this CPU even breaking a sweat. In the most graphics intensive games like Crysis 2 and Metro 2033, this CPu stands out because it will give you that extra 10-15 fps you're missing when running an i3 or E8400. I've had absolutely no issues during the 10 months that I've run this CPU. It runs cool and has a lower TDP (95) than the equivalent Bulldozer competitors. Overall, you can't beat the value of this processor if you can snag it for around $200.

Cons:

It does not have not hyper threading. Also, it can run a little hot with the stock cooler (50's Celsius), but it's nothing a xigmatek rifle cooler-such as the XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283-can't handle. My Gaia SD 1283 brings temps down to low 30's for non-gaming and low 40's for intense gaming.

Other Thoughts:

System specs:
Corsair 400R Carbide series Mid Tower Case
ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3
i5-2500K
GSkill Ripjaw 4GB X 2
Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti SOC 1000 Mhz
Seagate Constellation 500GB HD
NZXT HALE90-750-M

I'm currently in the process of upgrading to the ivybridge i5, an MSI motherboard, and eventually the GTX 660 TI.
