Pros:

-Quite Fast
-You know you want it so just buy it. However, please read "Other Thoughts" before doing so.

Cons:

- Heat
- RAM controller causes slightly underwhelming memory benchmarks

Other Thoughts:

First:

As mentioned above, this thing runs very warm so invest in a good liquid cooler. I had good results with a Corsair H100i and a 5.1GHz overclock.

Second:

Do your research on motherboards that are FULLY compatible with this CPU. I first tried using a ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 (heavy cpu loads caused thermal shut downs for me).

The second board I tried was the Crosshair V Formula Z which is working flawlessly even with a slight overclock.

Other boards may work with this CPU...this is just my experience. Hopefully it saves someone some RMA time
