Pros: Works as advertised. comes clocked at 3.3ghz out of the box which is nice and 73 Watts which leaves plenty of room for overclocking.

Cons: As always with a only a duel core cpu you will not be running many modern games on max-ultra settings such as BF3, MW3, or Crysis II. You get what you pay for and for 140 bucks this cpu can't be beat. The stockIntel fan is a joke as you all must already know. It doesnt sit properly over the cpu or lock in tight. I bought some silver laced heat reduction goupe from Radio shack and it is working wonders so far. Temps sitting at a cool 31 C. Idle and 52 C. under heavy load, so not bad. Til I decide to overclock mine ill stay with stock fan but I'd advise anyone thinking of overclocking to get a self contained cpu liquid cooling radiator/rear fan combo.

Other Thoughts: I payed for UPS shipping and the shipping box had a puncture mark in the side off it so I was kind of freaking out, especially when the delivery guy shoved it in my chest, didn't say a word or ask for a signature and left. All and all a good buy but I am now very wary of UPS for my future shipping needs.
