Awesome processor

  • Summary: Just got two of these for a dual home vm server and it made me happy seeing 16 logical cores in Xen. Haven't had any issues and these little puppies are energy efficient and powerful. Sure, they're a few years old but they still out perform a lot of the core i5 and some of the older i7s for a smidgen of the price even if you get them used.

All in all a good value starting point.

  • Summary: I had just bought a Supermicro X8DTE-F dual cpu motherboard on eBay and was lucky to find a pair of these quad-core cpu's for $65 each and of the same "stepping", which means that they left the production line about the same time. Same stepping is desirable when running dual cpu's. They are a bit to the mainstream side, not being all that fast but not to slow either.

  • Summary: This is the low power version of the E5520 processor. This is a great processor if you want to get things done without a lot of heat. I use this for virtualization. With hyperthreading on, you will have 8 cpu's to server the guests.

Power I7 im Schafspelz

  • Summary: Eigentlich ist diese CPU für Servermainboards gedacht, jedoch gibt es einige X58 Mainboards welche XEOn CPUs anstandslos annehmen, darunter das ASUS P6T WS und so ziemluch alle Gigabyte Boards mit X58 CHipsatz. Ich selbst habe 3 Jahre lang den Intel Core I7 verwendet, doch ist dieser mit 130W nicht nur sehr stromfressend, sondern auch noch ein echtes Heitzkraftwerk, Temperaturen von 60 Grad und mehr im idle waren keine Seltenheit trotz Corsair Wasserkühlung.
