Pros: Overclocks super high, beats almost all of AMD's offerings, price

Cons: Only 4 cores, 4 threads

Bought this back in March of 2011. Right out of the box, it hit 4.8GHz on my Xigmatek S1283. I couldn't have been happier. Put it in another board, I can get as high as 5.2GHz (5.0 stable). I run it daily at 4.90GHz though.

Some people have better chips than others obviously. Mine happens to be one of the "worse" chips, as it requires 1.49v for 4.9GHz. Overall, I don't mind. I would certainly buy this chip again.
