Pros: Amazing quality! I had an old monitor that messed up the colors immensely, this one is spot on, and looks great! 1080p support over DVI is awesome too!

Cons: None yet!

Pros: Haven't even bothered OCing it yet, it's running every game I can throw at it no problem, no idea why you'd currently need more power than this. It's also running relatively cool for an air-cooled case in an under-ventilated area, staying below 120 easily, even in the middle of games while running two monitors.

Cons: Kinda big, goes across the entire ATX board, getting the power cables to it required me to move two of my HDDs first.

Pros: I haven't OCed mine yet, simply because I've had no issues with it not keeping up. I plan to switch to an 18GB RAM drive for my gaming needs in the next month or so, but until then I think my only bottleneck is my SSDs, which means this CPU is definitely doing its job.

Cons: New socket is out, any motherboards for this will probably be obsolete in a year or so, kinda disappointing, really :/ Also, the reason for the new socket is to add more PCI-E connections to the CPU, apparently this socket is quite limited, look it up if you're doing anything that requires more than 1 PCI-E 16x slot.

Other Thoughts: Can't think of any real complaints for this one, as long as you understand its limitations and stay inside those boundaries, it's a solid CPU.
