Pros: Cranked straight up to 4.5ghz with only a 0.025 Volt increase
Runs cool on the Coolermaster hyper 212 evo at 55c under load
Other Thoughts: When the video card has 10 times more to do with gaming performance per $ why would you waste your money on intel?
save your money on the processor and sink it into a good gpu!
Pros: 11% slower than a 7950 for about $200 less
Cons: I miss the old rear exhaust enclosed heat sink design.
Other Thoughts: I think people may be handling their cards wrong to have this many DOA. As a tech I have seen people complain about ASUS motherboards being DOA after they forgot to use standoff screws for the case.

Pros: Definitely faster than a standard 7200 rpm drive
(Mine arrived in nice bubble packing inside of its own box!)
Zero hassle for someone who has trouble configuring SSD HHD dual drive setup with games and music and movies.
Cons: Wish there was better benchmarking software to show the drives strong points!
Other Thoughts: People keep benchmarking these drives like a SSD but the performance you achieve is not from random RW seeks
The amazing part after you ignore the drive, reboot your computer 4 or 5 times over a period of a week and see your boot times slowly decrease until the windows loading logo never shows up because by the time the monitor kicks on your looking at the desktop.
This is a learning drive, it is not fast when asked to do something new, its fast when repeating something its done before, like load a game you play every day and boot the computer.
