Pros: Simply Rock Solid. Makes Overclocking a breeze. Overclocks my 1045t x6 thuban nicely via FSB to 4.1ghz without issue
Cons: Not completely am3+ (which I am sure asus was still adverising it as being at the time - wish I had taken a pic of their website!)
Absolutely chuffed. As a single parent on a low income All in all the platform upgrade cost around £200 (CPU,Board and ram). Does everything I ask of it. Plays games at high settings. Trans-codes video quickly.
Was tempted to upgrade to an fx8350 but because of poor bios support and no real performance difference upgraded Graphics card instead. (HD78502gb)
For anyone looking for a budget build I can't recommend it enough. If you are still on 775 and can find your parts second hand you could upgrade whole platform for less than most new decent Intel processors.
