Pros: This thing is so very cheap, and so very powerful.

Cons: Well, I suppose one could consider the lame heat sink lawn mower that was included with this proc. Swap it for something that is going to keep her cool properly, and quietly. Considering the price, and that most anyone buying this would swap for an aftermarket heat sink anyway, I can't take an egg.

Other Thoughts: Dropped this thing into my computer, clicked easy overclock, and my system instantly clocked it to 4.5ghz. Blazing fast.

Pros: It works as advertised, even better I'd suppose, as I'm not currently utilizing the water cooling, and it has no issues running at advertised clock speeds.

Cons: If you're using an aftermarket air cooled heat sink for your proc, you will definitely want to consider lower profile memory. These sticks are pretty tall on the board with the extra water tubing...

Other Thoughts: It looks pretty nice and feels like a solidly built piece. Keep in mind I'm not pushing my memory with overclocking at this point in time, as I'm still deciding on what water components I want...
