Pros: I won't repeat what everyone else has listed as a pro for this processor. Let's just say that they are correct for the most part.
Be prepared for some serious cooling for this. 150w processors tend to get hot :D
I use a Corsair H100i and it keeps it at 32C idle and about 54C full-load (78 degree ambient - very good airflow).
You will not find a faster x86/x64 processor on a single-socket package.
Cons: The price, but that's what you pay for enthusiast-grade, bleeding-edge technology.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Everything is a pro with one or two of these (or even more if you have RAID-capable ports to spare)! I am running two in a RAID0 and am getting 1GB/sec random reads/writes via AIDA64.
Cons: Cons? For $265 and the best random access times in the business, plus 1GB/sec sustained transfer rates... you won't see me complaining quite yet : )
Other Thoughts: Why buy one when you can buy two for double the price!
Either way, you won't regret the purchase.
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Cools a tad better than air.
Not terribly loud.
Installs relatively easy.
Price is definitely in range with expectations.
Cons: Don't expect it to perform like a custom loop system.
The CorsairLink2 software is buggy at times.
LED on the pump will change colors after a system power cycle.
Supplied screws hit the radiator fins when installed the included fans.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a high-end air cooler and have real-estate inside your case, you should consider the H100i instead.READ FULL REVIEW
