is it just me, or is one of the pages missing?

What page? You saw nothing. *waves hand around*

With the synthetic CPU benchmarks, I didn't know what to expect, but the results didn't surprise me

Overall, great review man! Cant wait to see how you overclock this bad boy in the near future!

You guys knocked this one out of the park. Great job!
I really like where AMD is going with this and Intel needs some competition so I'm gonna pick up a platform.
Perhaps when it comes time to update the overclocking results a separate 'review' with a detailed methodology for success might be the better idea,no?

Great for budget builders and simple PCs.

On another note, does the platform for this cpu support Trim?
