Pros:

-Lower power consumption vs. previous models and competitive models.
-Integrated graphics makes it easier when installing this into a new build, as drivers for the GPU aren't installed yet.
-Unlocked to push it to it's potential (granted proper cooling is implemented)

Cons:

-Intel's high price is the only one I can think of.

Other Thoughts:

Installed this on a MSI Z77A-GD65 and it runs flawlessly. Upgraded from AMD's Phenom x6 II 1055t which wasn't all that bad of a processor. I was able to overclock the Phenom from 2.8 to 3.6GHz via ASUS's Core Unlocker. For the 3570k I was able to achieve 4.2GHz from 3.4GHz via MSI's OC Genie II.

One great thing is the i5 stays fairly cool at 50C during gaming, even though I'm using the older Corsair H60 to cool it. Another benefit coming from the Phenom is the i5 consumes less power overall.

I haven't found much to complain about this CPU. A great buy for any gaming enthusiast out there that wants great performance over the long run and that's unlockable for your overclocking needs.
