Pros: Incredibly faster than the hard drive I had in my laptop before. Uses less power, lighter, and so much faster than any HDD. Boots in seconds and you can launch apps instantly once at the desktop.
Other Thoughts: For those who are using this to replace a hard drive but you do not want to do a fresh install of WIndows I recommend using EasyUS todo backup. I put the SSD into and external enclosure and plugged up via USB. EasyUS allows you to easily clone your hdd and change partition sizes. Great tool since your SSD is smaller than your old HDD. Once it's cloned just swap out your internal HDD for your SSD it will boot no problem. Just make sure to back up your data anytime your are working with moving data or altering partitions..READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Amazing overclocking potential. Since I've purchased a new board, GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3, I have been able to overclock this CPU much farther. Before I could only get a stable 4.3 GHz overclock. With this new board I have a very stable 4.7 GHz overclock.
Other Thoughts: This 4.7 GHz limit is only because of heating problems. I'm using an all in one Antec h20 Kuller liquid cooling system. I can get a 5 GHz overclock to boot but it is unstable and I cannot increase the voltage anymore to stabilize it without increase the heat into dangerous levels. If a person had the right board and the right cooling system they could easily sustain a 5 GHz overclock. And at 5 GHz it is FAST and HOT!READ FULL REVIEW
