Pros: Working great.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Purchased this CPU for my home system, which is used mainly for HD video and some light gaming. It's handled that quite well so far, on Win7 Ultimate.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I use a discreet graphics card, so can't speak as to the performance of the onboard graphics of this chip.
CPUs like this are where the value is at... not many applications can take advantage of having more cores, and most of the time other hardware will be the bottleneck before the CPU is. It's perfect for typical home media center duty. This chip paired with a cheap 4850 even handles fairly modern games at respectable settings.
This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 W0070 430W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply
Pros: My new system has been up and running with this PS for a few weeks now, everything seems to be going good.
Comes with the full variety of connectors you'd need (6pin, 8pin)
Good value, especially considering it's sleeved.
Cons: Only 2 SATA power connectors, which are paired so can only work for 2 drives within an inch of eachother. Since nearly all hard drives and optical drives use SATA these days, only having a single pair of SATA power connectors is really unacceptable since it would be inadequate even for the most basic system build with a DVD drive and single HD (since in most cases they'd be more than an inch apart). So be prepared to have to buy molex to SATA converters.READ FULL REVIEW
