Summary: Well... Too late for a review of this processor. The net is full of it. An interesting thing that I noticed is that installed in a very small mini-ITX case with a low cost low profile CPU fan (not the stock fan because it was too tall) it dissipated little heat. Worth considering for a small PC.
Summary: My first unit to use in a new pc. I will over clock it to see how it works at higher settings but so far runs a little better than the AMD chip I used to run. I am sure it runs quieter and not as hot.
Summary: Decent mid to high end CPU. Good for virtualization at a semi-reasonable price. Since AMD is not keeping pace with Intel on the performance front, don't really have that many options to pick from. This CPU is a decent middle ground.
Pros: Good mid to high end CPU
Cons: Intel pricing is a bit expensive without any real competition is this segment from AMD
