Pros: Very fast, and great temperatures on a basic fan cooling system. Stock heat sink and fan work great. Doesn't go above 50C-55C under 100% load, idles at 2C-4C, this is overclocked at 3.5GHz.
Greatly improved the performance in ALL of my games, frame rates haven't been measured, but what I can see and feel is more then enough. This is being paired with a GT 440, not overclocked. Overclocked to 3.5Ghz a performance increase is still notably felt and seen while playing, tested on games like Assassins Creed 3, Crysis 2 and 3, Diablo 3, TERA, Black Ops, and well, you get it.
Cons: Overclocking is bring an issue with one core staying a couple hundred mghz below the other 3, core #2 is actually the culprit.
I am also noticing some lag while typing, only happened when starting to overclock this APU. Nothing horrible, but it is noticeable.
Other Thoughts: Right now I'm loving it. Overclocks nicely, and no need for a aftermarket cooling system to get to 3.5, 3.6 Ghz.READ FULL REVIEW
