Pros: Using this CPU with the Intel BOXDB75EN LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s mother board, I was able to play DC Universe on line flawlessly, this was with no Graphics card. The CPU runs cool and quiet even with the stock fan. I dont over clock, and I am very content with the CPU performance.
Cons: The inability for the 4 cores to share a process seems bad, but I haven't see it run into any lag issues yet.
Other Thoughts: Hearing that awful crunch sound when installing the CPU brought back bad memories when I used to crack old AMD glass core CPUs. Don't worry, it's not a bad sound when you hear it installing this CPUREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: It fit -Just- right into the Intel BOXDB75EN LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard even with the Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-750 power suppy cords all over the place. The card slid right along the SATA controlers and Memory slots and I didn't notice a single bit of noise difference when I turned on my PC. The PCI-e cover was a nice touch and so far it's working.
Cons: I guess no one uses Analog monitors to avoid the digital flicker but I'm still one of them. I'm glad I had a DVI to Analog VGA adaptor but wish this came with one. The dual card slot completely covered the Mini-PCIe slot on the motherboard, so no Crossfire use for me. Though it is a Mini Mobo so I can expect as much
Other Thoughts: It's difficult to know if I should go to AMD, Radeon, or Gigabyte for the latest updates. Without installing the CD software and drivers I went to Gigabyte and downloaded their October 10th 2012 install for my win 7 64 and we'll see how that goes. The Packing was well done and it seemed a level of care was put in to packing the thing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: After reading the reviews and a technical breakdown of this power supply, it handled itself very well under the tests and rose above the name this brans seemes to have made for it self. I haven'1 bought a p/s in over 10 years and things have changed a bit so don't just take my word for it. Non-modular cables are steady and well built and plenty of Sata and Legacy power connections to go around.
Cons: A lot of power cables may lead one to know how to hook things up or tie things down to keep things organized.READ FULL REVIEW
