As far as raw performance, I can encode a 90 min divx movie to DVD format using nero (cpu intensive) in roughly 15 to 20 mins. To give an example, older Athlon X2's (939, AM2) take around an hour. I also tend to encode a LOT of mp3s to keep everything uniform at the same bit rate. It chews through them like nothing. Encoded around 300 mp3s using dbPowerAmp in 25 mins. That's impressive.
The cooler it comes with is questionable. It's very small. A lot smaller than I expected. It does the job, but I would recommend investing in a aftermarket cooler such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212. Especially if you plan to overclock. If you're looking for a CPU that has hidden cores to unlock, this is not one of them.
It's a great budget CPU. If you're looking for something high end, I would look toward the FX or Phenom II series. But If you're on a tight budget and need something that will not only get the job done, but will have great results...this is the CPU for you.

A little choppy on certain distros of linux.
The pre-installed heatsink compound on the fan was a great benefit also.
