Pros
8 cores, performs well for its price.
Cons
None if you can understand it won't perform the same as a 300 dollar cpu. Also the stock fan is loud.
Summary
I've been using this for over a year in a Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 motherboard (which i wish they still made because its a solid affordable motherboard).
I've overclocked this without even increasing its voltage to 3.8ghz on its stock fan... i'm sure i could go far beyond that if I needed to. Its hard to know how high it could go, because with water cooling i could almost expect this thing to go to way over 4 ghz.
I can't comment on its gaming performance because I only use this on a PC which is used for security cameras, but it handles them well.
The stock fan is very loud though, but it does cool the cpu well, but if you have this PC running anywhere near you, using the stock cooler isn't recommended. I have this PC in a area that isn't near anyone so its fine for me.
Keep in mind this isn't as fast as intels 4 core, 8 threaded i7's... but its price is great and for performing most tasks it can do things without any problems.
It does use more power then the i7's also... I tested my 2600k which was overclocked to 4.6ghz, and it used 30 watts less power then this cpu clocked at 3.8 ghz. but thats not really much to worry about... however, when the PC was idle, the power usage was slightly less on this CPU then on the intel.

Pros
8 Cores for way cheaper than any other CPU
Cons
none so far
Summary
Set it on a ASUS M5A97 R2.0 for my son and he really appreciate
for gaming purpose.

Fast, quite, temp stay low with an ULTRA thermo electric cooler.

I'm buying AMD for years now and i got no complain since then.

I would have buy the FX-8150 or 8350 but my son respect his
budget and decide to invest on better quality memory.

Pros
Unlocked for intense overclocking
Runs fine with most games
Good for multitasking
Good for video editing
Cons
Certain cpu intensive games run with low fps (e.g. gw2) which was unfortunate for me.
Stock fan is pretty bad. Don't use it.
Summary
I was on a tight budget for my gaming build so I went for the cheaper cpu with a better gpu. It is a pretty decent cpu though. Does the job nicely and should last me at least a year. Hopefully amd can create  something that can perform par to the i5 chips by then. If you're on a budget for a decent chip go with the amd and save money. If you want a beast computer, Spend more on intel.

Pros
Absolutely great value for price
Cons
Gets warm
Summary
Used this chip in my friends build and it tears through his computing needs with ease. Gets warm with stock heatsink even just browsing the web so we moved it next to the window and cracked the window a bit. Here in Canada it helps alot as it dropped his temps by 15°c!

Pros
Good deal
8 Cores
Good enough for the average gamer
Cons
Stock Heatsink is LOUD
Summary
Its not an i5 but it does the job. Love the fact that it has 8 cores which helps me a lot with my work. Beware of the stock heatsink because it gets LOUD. If you want a quiet build, prepare to purchase a CPU cooler. Love this CPU.

Pros
Its pretty good got it with motherboard for $200
Cons
The heat sink fan is unacceptable its easily the loudest part in my case.
Summary
Fast 8 cores but the heat sink fan will have to be replaced by one that doesn't drive me nuts.

Pros
Fast but not as good as my i7
8 cores but totally irrelevant since the programs i use cant use those threads
Cons
my friend could have been better off with a i5 3450
he spent 180 on this when its much cheaper now
Summary
This chip is good for budget workstations or tasks that require the extra threads. if it is for gaming, id suggest otherwise. bought it for my friend

Pros
Very fast, 8 cores
Cons
Stock Heatsink and fan not very good
Summary
Very good processor, Cheap, Fast. Works very well in gaming the only issue is that the stock fan and heatsink will do the job for a little while, but you will need to get another, just to surf the web it heats up to 65
