Cons: The processor itself appears to be very loud; the fan is very quiet. I had never heard of a loud processor, and did not know they could make noise like this. It is possible that some other component is making the noise, but it goes away when I change out the processor (using the same heat-sink and fan).
Pros: Runs well with dell factory power supply in which total DC output will not exceed 300 watts. Power supply is rated for 17 amps at +12VA and 9 amps on +12VB; 10 amps on +3.3V, 13 amps on +5V.
Cons: No cons to date.
