Good for virtualization environment

Bernie C., Newegg
2 June 2009
  • Pros: I have two of these CPU's on a Lenovo D10 running W2k8 x64 R2 16 MB FBDIMM with 4 low load VM's under hyper-v. Two VM's are W2k8 servers and 2 VM's are PC's. The CPU's handle it well. The fan noise is low. Installation is easy. There are two components: the CPU chip itself and the active/pasive h...

Best PRICE/PERFORMANCE Processor

Connor R., Newegg
27 April 2009
  • Summary: I might buy the L5420's now that they are out (lower power consumption @ 50W instead of 80W, but same speed as these E5420's)
  • Pros: - Fast processors out of the box - OC'd to 3.2ghz easily in BIOS without having to up power at all. - Works GREAT with Skulltrail (D5400XS) Motherboard - I bought two: 8 cores = awesome for After Effects / Premiere Pro video editing!

lovely processor

Kyle A., Newegg
22 October 2008
  • Summary: Paired this proc with a Tyan S5396 and 8GB of Kingston DDR2-667. Running several virtual machines w/ various apps under a *nix host is absolutely no problem for it. I also noticed a significant lack of third-party cooling solutions, but I found a quiet one by thermalright that works great.
  • Pros: Wicked fast relatively economical quad-core processor. My board has two sockets but I haven't seen a need for a second, no matter what I throw at this one.
  • Cons: Not a native quad-core, though not really an issue. No QPI yet.

Blazing fast CPU, poor cooling assembly.

Mike Whitton, Amazon
10 September 2008
  • Summary: This CPU is extraordinarily fast and runs fabulously, but the active heatsink that it is packaged with is terrible. It would not screw down properly onto the motherboard mounting apparatus resulting in poor heat conductivity.

Good processor but lousy heatsink

C. Liao, Amazon
7 September 2008
  • Summary: The processor is good,fast and power-efficient. No doubt about it. But the stock CPU fan and heatsink is freaking loud! You cannot tolerate the noisy for a minute. I had to buy my own heatsink from other vendors. And there are only a few for sale online.

8 Cores is better than a bushel of apples

Wayne S., Newegg
16 May 2008
  • Summary: I'm voting for Pat Paulsen
  • Pros: Added this to my xw6600 workstation along with 8GB FB DDR2. Very fast with Vista Business 64bit. Solid Works much faster.
  • Cons: It was the Democrats time to shine and they give us the 2 stooges to choose from. What a waste of great opportunity & timing.
