Pros:

+ Price-budget 8 core CPU (especially when on sale got mine for $164+ 2yr warranty)

+ easily OC to 4Ghz for a moderate OC & a default 8350 speed (stress tested mine up to 4.3 Ghz stable but likes to drink electricity) with custom cooler

+ multi-tasks like a beast (tab out of a game on steam,watch a MP4 movie & have 10 tabs open in Firefox at the same time)

+ gaming- hang's in there with the Intel big boy z, paired with the right GPU of course

+ Temps on the CPU with my Cooler master hyper 212 plus on this CPU have never gone above 22C (idles at 14 C) with the 4Ghz OC

Cons:

- the fan/heat sink that came with it, is one of the tiniest little pieces of junk I ever did see, scrap it & turn it into a beer coaster

- not an I5 or I7, but hey if your reading this your like me on a budget (cheap skates gotta represent)

-Don't trust another mans thermal paste, I personal don't know what brand they used on the heat sink. But go with the goo of your preference, mine is Artic Silver 5 the only goo I trust

Other Thoughts:

Coming from an old budget AMD quad core (amd 645 3.1 ghz). I m glad AMD hasn't lost it touch. Supplying great value for the dollar.
