Pros: Fast and relatively inexpensive. Great processor for the money! Very happy with this purchase.
Cons: Not a con, just a note: consider getting a good cooler for this if you do cpu-intensive tasks. this processor runs hot at full load and the stock cooler is noisy at high rpm.
Overall Review: Almost didn't buy this 95w version because it wasn't on my motherboard's supported list (Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H). Dropped it in and ran with no problems. Had previously purchased the 125w version and RMA'd it for this 95w version. Excellent RMA service from Newegg.
Works like a champ
Pros: Great hard drive, works like a champ. Whisper quiet. Plugged in as a secondary drive on Win 7 x64 machine and worked with no problems whatsoever.
Overall Review: As with most hardware, make sure you have plenty of air flow/ventilation to keep this thing cool if it is reading & writing frequently.
Pros: Very quiet and moves a good amount of air. Double ball bearing so should last a long time. Easily the best fan I've purchased from Newegg.
Cons: Even though this fan is very quiet it does emit a slight, somewhat high-pitched noise. It is barely noticable, but if you are sensitive to noise then you might want to look for something more quiet.
