Pros: I am using a SilverStone small form factor case and my cpu fan and the power supply fan have only about 1/2 inch of distance from one another. To my suprise this processor maintains a constant 40C as my fan may speed up at times to keep this temp. Only had this about 3 weeks but so far I am very pleased. Have not had the desire to up the processor speed yet, I am just happy that everything is going smoothly with the small case.
Cons: none yet.
Overall Review: I think the reason that a fan is not included with the processor is that most people will overclock and then the fan provided will no longer be sufficient.
Pros: worked for almost 2 months
Cons: Power supply lasted for not even 2 months, one evening I smelt something burning and when I entered the room, the power supply was fried. It also took out my motherboard and processor along with it.
Overall Review: Spend a little bit more, you really do get what you pay for.
