Pros: Easily overclocked, price, preformance
Cons: Semi-Locked multi
I don't know of others experience with this processor overclocked but with a simple BCLK ajustment of +20 I reached 4.4 ghz stable @ 1.33 vcore with everything set on auto! Granted I would be able to get that down with some tweaking but IMO 1.33 under water with max core temps of 55c whilst stress testing is just fine
Paired with my Sabertooth x79 and 2 x Sapphire 290x's in crossfire the performance is simply amazing! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to run multi gpu's or anyone with a LGA 2011 platform. With the overclocking ability of this inexpensive cpu the next step up would be to get a hexacore but with the added price and the fact that for us gamers the extra cores don't help much except in benckmarks, it is a down the road upgrade.
