Pros: $80 bucks for a Quadcore 3.2 GHz processor. Although it does lag a bit behind Intel's CPU's but for its price. there is No real complaints. (Comparing $80, to $300)
Under Load. my Old Intel Q6600 liked to run at 70c... This Chip Barely goes past 28c under heavy Gaming Sessions, Using the stock cooler+2 6" Case fans for proper Circulation
Built on an MSI a78m-E45 Mb. (another budget board), 8 gb of DDr3 Ram by Kingston, and a XFX 7770 Graphics card i repurpised out of my Old Gaming tower. Built myself a New Rig for roughly $400.
Everything was Plug and go, didn't have to fight with any settings aside from configuring current Time/Date
Don't Laugh. but Built it to run Tera: Rising At max graphic settings, Pulling 78 FPS idling in less crowded areas, 58 in the main Town during Peak hours, and about 40-47 fps while doing Raids/dungeon runs with High effect skills being spammed. Could not ask for more for the cost.
Another game. Final Fantasy 14. Another Mmo. Pushes at 73 FPS Idle, and drops down to about 58 while doing any combat/in major cities. Way more then playable on max settings. Haven't tried it out on any Next Gen Shooters aside from Farcry 3
That ran beautifully. up untill surprise Tiger attack XD. Still pulled roughly 60 FPS easly.
Oh... Btw. Screen Ratio was on a garbage sharp tv running 1080i (1776x1000 Ratio).
Cons: Didn't know AMD chips where this cheap...
No Real Cons unless you are really bent out of shape of lack of an L3 Cache. Still a VERY powerful CPU without it.
Other Thoughts: 11/10 would buy agian if need be (And will be to build my Gf a proper Pc. she's using my old Intel Quad atm XD)READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: For its price ITs amazing, Keeps my rig cool Im usign the giant 120mm fan and its quiet,
As for the drive bay Removing the Front plate to insert DVD/cd drives is the best way to do it. (found that out after strugglign to stick it in from the back. (personal revolation, dont build computers after 3am)
Cons: None of the nice lookign Drive bay cd/dvd covers matched up with my drives, had to remove them.
Only other con it was shipped in 2 boxes.
Other Thoughts: for $25 bucks at the time free shipping... Im not goign to say it was a bad buy it wasnt. Ther eis more than enought room insive its carniverous bay not to mention its light. ITs a big case that dosent weight a lot. Loving newegg more and moreREAD FULL REVIEW
