Cons: I dislike having to apply a lot of pressure to get the stock fan on.
Other Thoughts: CPU temp under normal load is 36c, ambient temp 89f.
The cpu appeared to be packaged normally but the surface had some discoloration, like water spots. I cleaned the surface with cpu cleaner bought from Newegg before but the spots did not come off. It appears to work normally, so, I'll let it be. Dropped one egg for that.
Other Thoughts: I'm a big fan of G.Skill, not only is the Ram stable but the SPD usually has performance profiles that many MB's can use automatically, ie the user does not need to enter timings and voltages manually.
