Pros:

Fastest CPU I've owned for sure. The machine literally had no hiccups and booted up immediately after we put it together. I have yet to overclock, and can't really imagine why I would need to any time soon. It works flawlessly with the Gigabyte 990FX-UD3 motherboard. While technically the i7 series are faster, but you can hardly argue with the price point. By getting this you're saving $100 on your processor and another $100 on your motherboard compared to Intel. It definitely provides enough performance. The 8 cores are a breeze for gaming and video rendering. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Cons:

None at all. I've seen other people complain about the stock fan, but it keeps the processor at a reasonable temperature without any overclocking. Can't wait to get a new cooler next month and take this over to 4GHz.

Other Thoughts:

I'm an AMD fanboy despite that they don't have the performance crown. Their prices are incredibly fair for the speed and I would prefer to support a business that follows a model ethics strategy. This CPU won't disappoint you if you pair it up with the right stuff. It SCREAMS with an EVGA GTX 670 FTW and 16GB of DDR3-1866.
