Pros: Very fast and consistant performance that you really can notice when working with CPU intensive operations. You get what you pay for and then some.
Cons: Not the cheapest option.
Other Thoughts: This CPU is certainly a great value for what you pay for. There are numerous CPU's that will save you some money but they won't deliver when it comes down to actual performance. You can't simply measure a CPU on its speed alone these days. I've seen other CPU's with more cores and faster bandwidth perform poorly compared to this CPU when faced with the identical tasks. In my case it was music editing with an enormous amount of real-time pluggins running. This simply is the best CPU I've owned yet.
