Pros: Its fast, Windows 7x64 Cpu speed is now 7.4 ..
Mine came at 3800mhz default which got me surprised..
Everything runs quick, web and flash applications.
Cons: Its hot.. this cpu really hot and the heatsink is not good enough to kool it down.
Other Thoughts: In window 7 x64 some cores are parked, this happens also with the piledrive .. so if u want full perfomance on all cores you need to unpark the cores, run perfomance monitor in Window 7 to ckeck if the cores are parked.
Also i tried the windows 7 patched from microsoft and didnt unpark 3 cores i had parked.
Google search how to unpark AMD core to use an application to unpark them.
Cooln'Quiete need to be disabled in BIOS or the CPU will be throttled in Windows.
