-Outstanding gaming performance.
-Just about the fastest single threaded performance you can get.
-Over-clocks fairly well w/o deliding. (A good quality cooler is a must).
-6 cores/12 threads is no slouch for content creators & productivity either.
-Will be a viable CPU for many years to come.
-Difficult to acquire.
-A little pricey due to scarcity. (I paid $419 which I think is reasonable).
-Non-soldered integrated heat-sink...they used thermal paste instead so depending on your situation it can run warm.
-To really push the limits of over-clocking, deliding is recommended, along with water cooling.
I bought this CPU in order to finally make a leap up from my trusty i5 2500k Sandybridge that I'd been using since 2011. I have zero regrets. This thing is super fast. DO NOT buy from greedy scalpers. Just be patient and diligent and you can snag one for a reasonable price.
