  • Summary: These were for a processor upgrade for an ASUS DSGC-DW that has been operating 24/7 since I built the system in December 2007, with two Xeon E5335 quad-core processors.

  • Summary: I got a pair of these to upgrade my Dell 2950, and I couldn't be happier. I don't know the voltage specs on these off the top of my head, but I've seen a drop in motherboard temperature and an increase in overall server speed.

  • Summary: This is one of the higher bin processors available for old servers like the BL460c G1. Two of these work flawlessly in tandem, the speed of all 8 cores paces the power of a 4 core 8 thread I7-8320 SB-E processor.

Solid perfomer

  • Summary: Have another Amd opteron system with dual 2.8Ghz cpus. Overall the Xeon doesn't feel like it is that much faster, but some calculations with the Xeon (using prime95) are twice as fast as the Opteron (had 4 cores running prime95!).
  • Pros: Quad core, 3.0Ghz, 12MB L2 Cache, "E" series energy efficient.
  • Cons: Although this is a 3.0Ghz, the cpu generally runs throttled back at ~2.0Ghz. You have to push it to get the speed up to 3.0Ghz (ok, some would say it is not a con to be "green"). Made the mistake of ordering the passive cooler, had to order cpu cooler.
