Pros: Very very fast
Simple to install
Stock cooler does the job if not OC.

Cons: Expensive if bought at regular price compared to I5
Stock cooler is loud

Other Thoughts: I bought this with a MSI Z87 G65 gaming edition motherboard (replacing AMD Athlon x4 3.0 ghz with mid quality motherboard) and my system got wayyy faster.

I had a XFX HD 7970 DD (which was probably bottlenecking) and my in-game FPS litteraly doubled. It made a bigger difference on my overall system speed than getting a SSD (which was probably not at 100% on my old board too).

I did not OC yet and the stock cooler keeps it cool enought for me. It is loud but my temps are fine. 30-45 trottle and 60-70 in-game. I ran Prime 95 and did'nt get above 85. I guess my tower has a good air flow.

If you are thinking you don't need a PCU ubgrade cause your current one don't reach 100% gaming you might be wrong. My last one never did and yet my performance got much higher.
