Pros: Excellent processor / OC ability for the money

Cons: It should be illegal for AMD to sell a CPU with a stock cooler that cannot stay below 60C running with zero load.
I read the reviews, but bought it without third party cooling as I only saw Gamer complaints.
I bought this CPU for my wife's FB and Flash game PC use.
Long story short this ran 60+C with just the BIOS software showing me the pathetic truth that AMD just doesn't care about the low-end user and expects everyone to shell out more money for cooling rather than engineer solid stock cooling.

Other Thoughts: AMD isn't winning any fans (no pun intended) with this terrible quality cooling. My next CPU will be Intel and I'll see how they perform for myself, maybe no better but I've learned my lesson with AMD.
