Pros: While not as speedy as AMD's higher-end offerings, this processor is just the right fit for word processing, internet browsing, and most office-type software usage...maybe even a basic medium-grade, low-medium load file server.
Does a good job and doesn't run too hot.
Cons: One of these on a recent build came with a slightly noisy cooler fan. It wasn't bad enough to return, though. Hopefully I don't get a complaint from the end-user.
Also, wish processor manufacturers could find a way to include the thermal material with the processor without actually applying it to the heatsink in cases where the end-user is going to use a third-party thermal compound. Scraping the stock stuff off the heatsink isn't a fun task.
Pros: Kingston Value RAM has been a reliable and solid choice for many years. It's not the fastest, doesn't have fins, flashing blue lights or a rotating disco ball, but always comes through, gets the job done and haven't encountered a bad stick yet.
Cons: For some people it's very difficult to get the RAM out of the package without the RAM flipping or flying out. A more finger-friendly version of packaging would be great, considering it's not fun having to replace parts because they were damaged from removing from the package.READ FULL REVIEW
