Summary: Not quick as the selle name suggests. Took over a month to get my processor and it was in worst condition than advertised. I just hope it works when I put it in my computer. If not I'll be back to leave more feedback.

Summary: Outdated and overpriced. I got this only because I hoped the memory controller would take and read all 24GB of ram, turns out it didn't help and something is "likely" wrong with the X58 FTW3 I ran it on. Ended up getting a i7-4960X and a whole new system instead.
Summary: Thanks to this seller, my long disheartening search is over. I searched for months for a specific replacement for my now obsolete mother board and was nearly out of options until I found Mustang 717! Yahoooooo! Thanks! It was and is working perfectly!
Pros: This processor runs wide open 24/7 in my InWin Ironclad case. It is rock solid. I do not use it for gaming. The system is also equipped with 3 video cards; 2 nVidea GTX 550Ti's and an AMD 7770. It does what I want it to do and has been for nearly 2 years.
Cons: The price is a bit exorbitant. Well, OK, it is extremely exorbitant. I feel I should have actually been able to build a Xeon machine for this price.
