Pros: Amazing for HDTV usage. 1080p over DVI->HDMI is a dream. Must-have for Blu-Ray or HD-DVD use since new HDCP tech came out for Digital connections.

Cons: Runs "warm", but not as bad as the other reviewer's setups. Idle is 44C and full load in 3DMark06 is 64C.

Overall Review: Saw a score of 4963 at default configuration with 3.4Ghz P4 Prescott +2gig of ram. I'll try out another fan, but it does not run anywhere near the other people's temps. Solid as a rock for games too.

Power is amazing.

Pros: Processor is seriously powerful. Must have for high end theater use. Stock heatsink is fine. No extra needed, idles at 104F and full-load sees maybe 128F. Fine for a processor, especially Prescott.

Cons: Heatsink design weird compared to my old socket 478 clips.

Overall Review: Needed to upgrade over 3.2ghz for HD-DVD playback. Processor kicks out some serious performance.
