Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very fast performance, can compete with some of the faster CPUs on the market. Aids in video processing enabling HD video display with no lost frames. Reasonable cost for a new CPU, and good value for one this fast.

The Cons:Need to purchase proper bonding glue for the fan separately. Draws a significant amount of power, not very efficient. Gets pretty hot when used heavily.
