Pros: Overclocks well, great performance

When this chip first came out, it was sort of a holy grail of overclocking. 4 GHz was generally easily attainable (I put mine straight to 4 when i installed it and never looked back). For the price and performance, it was hard to beat the 920. Now with the newer Sandy Bridge processors, it has lost some of its value but is still a very good chip.

I had an AMD Phenom II x4 945 before this and did quite a bit of rendering. The 920 was a much better processor for this application and feel overall snappier. I would highly recommend it.
