Pros: This thing, is a monster. You hear about them in fairy tales.. some big, ominous creature that is all powerful and just WAITING for the opportunity to show you its true power. Just when you think you have seen it all... it pushes even harder.
But seriously, this thing has such better single threaded performance, I can't hardly believe it. The MAIN reason I got this is for Games, the most played currently is DayZ. I was using an FX-6300 at 4.5Ghz and it was pretty dismal.. I was getting about 15fps in cities and 40 ish anywhere else. NOW I am getting about 30 in cities and 60 (with V-Sync) everywhere else at stock speeds! Other games such as Starcraft 2 are vastly improved as well.
Absolutely amazing processor.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I know these run a bit hotter so this isn't really a con but it scares me to have this thing reaching nearly 70 at 4.0Ghz (Hyper 212 EVO) when my FX probably would have died at that temp.
