Pros: * Passive heat sink
* Works on Linux with newest driver(Release date: 12/19/2013)
* Idle temperature is around 32C
Cons: None so far!
Other Thoughts: I am not a gamer. So I have no idea how it performs on modern games. I write openGL simulations and this serves the purpose. Primary reason for me to choose this card is the passive cooling. I don't like fans :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Z130 5W Speakers
Pros: Got it for 10$s. Not the best sound quality of the world. For that price I don't expect miracles, but serve the purpose. I used it as my desktop speakers to watch Youtube. If you plan to pay for the full retail price, I wouldn't do it but for 10$, I think I got a bargain.
Cons: Not that I can think of for the price.

Pros: I replaced by aging Phenom IIx2 555 BE with this. I didn't expect much of a performance increase, but I was wrong. I do lot of long math simulations on Linux and 4 cores are of course better than 2 cores for such a situations. I can clearly see them run faster and smoother.
Cons: This thing runs really HOT. When I used prime95, this hit 60C shortly regardless of my after market HSF with arctic silver TP. So I dropped the vcore to 1.3V(didn't underclock at all. Still it runs at 3.4Ghz) and everything is fine. Then I ran prime95 for hours without any issues.
Stock HS and fan is junk(Now I got 2 unused. One from this and one from previous 555). AMD shouldn't have included that in the box and by doing that they should be able to reduce the price of the CPU by at least 10-15$. It will be good for the customers as well as for the AMD.
Other Thoughts: I know this is not the newest processor from AMD. I am programmer and extremely light gamer. So I upgraded this hoping to keep the existing hardware for couple of years. Form that perspective, I am a winner.
