Pros: I can sweat this thing.... I left it stock (no overclocking) and even running GNS3, VM Workstation 10 and about a dozen virtual machines, virtual switches, routers, firewalls, and load balancers I barely got above 33% utilization. on a normal day teh thing is barely registering. Running games it barely blips even when on high settings (yeah I know most of that has to do with video cards) but I don't dedicate a card to physics so .. take that for what its worth.
Cons: Its not really a con but Price. honestly if your dropping 1K on a CPU you are probably not worried about this.
Summary: http://www.amazon.com/AMD-FX-Series-Eight-Core-Processor-FD8350FRHKBOX/dp/B009O7YUF6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370467656&sr=8-1&keywords=amd+8+core+processor Go to it 8 core 4GHz id rather get this AMD one and its only 190$ i like intel but AMD 8 cores wooooo crazy.
Summary: I bought on feb.18.2013 a processor intel i7-3960 Extreme, but i received instead, a processor Pentium D. What to do? I bought more: -CPU cooler Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 on march 21,2013 -Corsair dominator 32 GB DDR3 desktop memory, on march 26, 2013 -Asus Us p9x79 ws Motherboard, on feb 22, 2013 -Antec Formula thermal compound diamond, on march 25, 2013
Summary: I buy this item because it has more performance that other CPU. I like this CPU because It has 6 core and it is the most fast processor in the market. I dont compare this product because is the best in the market right now.
Summary: True, this CPU is one of the fastest on the market right now, but that doesn't mean it's worth it. First of all, I would not recommend this for any type of gamer, casual or hardcore. The integrated graphics are good, but you'll see very little performance difference between this processor and any other top notch Intel processor. Gamers would get much more bang for their buck by investing in a pricey GPU such as the GTX 680.
