Pros: - Low power - no 4pin needed. - Runs cool - the small cpu fan is actually very quiet, inaudible inside a case. Would have thought it would have been really high speed and loud. - 4x sata ports - PCI-e x16 slot
Cons: Usb 3.0 would have been nice. Newegg packaging could have been better.
Other Thoughts: Running Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS just fine. Single 8gb max sodimm slot isn't a problem, if you need more than 8gb of ram this isn't the type of cpu for you.
Makes for a great little server, I imagine it would be good for an HTPC too.
