Pros:

Excellent performance. But you already knew that.

Cons:

This isn't regarding the CPU performance, but the stupidity of Intel. Whoever thought the current CPU cooler designs were a good idea needs to spend 1 day adding and removing a stock CPU cooler. AMD's CPU brackets are a sensible design and, best of all, standard across generations of CPU's. Not so with Intel. I wanted to transfer a Zalman CPU cooler with brackets for all of the last generation of Intel CPU's but oh no, the size is slightly different. How hard is it to make a standard bracket that doesn't require pushing down so hard 4 times that you worry your screwdriver might slip and damage the motherboard? Make a standardized design stupids!

Other Thoughts:

I love the performance of the CPU, but the CPU coolers for Intel have been stupid for a long time. You think with all that money they can talk to someone who actually has to put these things on.
