Pros: great cpu. i have not found anything that will slow this thing down. it only 4 core with no v-threads or v-cores or what ever they are calling them this week. Anyway i went with this cpu becuase i did not want to pay for an i-7. i am very happy with it. i am a hard core gamer. this plays everything i have without any issues.
Cons: the included cooling is just trash. you would think that INtel would fix this. or leave it out and lower the price. I would use it if i could get it to stay in place. it clicks and then 5 seconds later it loose again. complete junk. i am not sure if the motherboard maybe not to specs or the cooling system. but either way i have to buy a third party heat sink and fan. i took one egg off for the heatsink and fan not staying in place.
Other Thoughts: i had to turn off the c-state, speedstep and the turbo to get it to work correctly. i am not sure if that is the motherboard i am using or the cpu. the cpu had pauses when i opened a new program. i noticed the cpu was running at 800mhz at ideal and there was a 5 to ten second pause when opening new programs, sometime alittle longer. the cpu now runs at 3.3ghz all the time. as i do not care about the power usage nor do i have any cooling issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: fast bootup
Cons: the only real speed i see from this drive is during boot. it does not seem to help with any games or program load times.
Other Thoughts: i think that maybe a newer motherboard is what i need to get the most from this drive. i am using a gen 1 i7(960).READ FULL REVIEW
