Pros: Easy to O/C, Responsive gameplay, Good on air to an extent
Cons: Threads not used efficiently on Windows 7
I got this processor 1/1/2012 for $169.99, I think it was worth it. As soon as I got it I decided to overclock it as much as I could. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get above 4GHz. I am now running it at 4.5GHz at 1.5v (22.5X200). I could go higher, but I am overclocking on air so I decided top play it safe. Gameplay is where this processor excels. If you want to be able to play games that require power, you got it with this beast. This card has 3 modules with two cores each, oddly (for me), most of the time it will only use 3 cores while running windows programs. Don't let that bring you down though, its not the processor's fault its Windows. Many other programs such as Google Chrome run using full multi-threading. And Minecraft runs wonderfully!
