Pros: 8 cores, 3.5GHz stock, overclocks very easily and well
Cons: 8 cores, 125W TDP, bad stock cooler
+ 3.5GHz --> 4.7 GHz OC - Overclocks very well (May vary based on silicon lottery)
+ Mutiplier unlocked
- 8 cores - Difficult to use in most cases... most games use 2-3 cores max
- 125W - Must replace stock cooler with anything
- Bad stock cooler - What idiot put a tiny, tiny fan and made up for it with 5500RPM!? It's loud at idle, and a jet engine at full load.
