Pros: A joy to overclock with, folds like a beast
I don't do much video encoding and such but I do fold. This thing is great for folding and will give you some solid PPD. Gaming on this is great (though if you're not folding/video encoding go with the i5 2500k) and is easy as can be for overclocking. Overall this CPU will last for a while* and is a great addition to any rig that supports it. There is nothing really bad to say about this processor.
