Great performance

  • Summary: Not too much more expensive than the 5420s but much cheaper than the 5440s & 5450s, so this was probably at the perfect price point when I bought them. Despite the Cons, I'm very pleased with my upgrade and it has increased my work efficiency quite a bit.
  • Pros: I bought a pair of these to go into my Supermicro X7DAE-O motherboard (with the latest BIOS flash done before the upgrade, of course). Now I have 8 extremely efficient CPUs to plow through all my video compression, file compression, DVD burning and various other tasks that these can handle with e...
  • Cons: With 4 cores on each chip, and each socket having its own separate FSB, these things are hard to keep fed with data from an antiquated FSB technology. Lots of I/O contention creating a bottleneck. The newer Xeons using Intel's new QuickPath Interconnect FSB replacement should resolve the bottlene...

Great Processor for a great price

Edward T., Newegg
25 August 2008
  • Summary: I went after the Skulltrail build with this CPU, but used Asus' version of it, MUCH better IMO. My setup: Asus Z7S, 2xIntel Xeon E5430, 8GB Cruical FB-DIMM DDR2-800, 300GB VelociRaptor, 3x500GB Seagate HDD, ASUS 4870x2, Corsair 1000W PSU, Watercooling with EK Supreme and Thermochill PA120.3.
  • Pros: Look at my "Other Thoughts" for my current build. I got 2 of these to fit with my Workstation Motherboard (ASUS Z7S WS), and they worked like a dream. Does everything from playing games, to rendering, to video editing to just daily use, perfectly. I got EK Supreme waterblocks to cool these CPU's ...
  • Cons: I only acheived a 10% overclock. Which on watercooling is not that great. OCing is a science and is not guaranteed for everyone. My CPU0 probably could have done a higher overclock, but because i have a workstation motherboard, i need both xeons to be working together. And during my OC, i found m...

Good Processor

Anonymous, Newegg
17 August 2008
  • Summary: Runs HD content well, no lag what so ever.
  • Pros: This processor works just how it should, runs all my games perfectly. With a good video card, it is great for gaming. It's x64 compatible works well with x64 Vista Ultimate.
  • Cons: I'm not sure who it is to blame, Tyan or Intel, but the heatsink fan that came with this processor, wasn't compatible with the socket. I had to find some really small knots to hold it into place.
