Summary: Solid chip from Intel. Had no problems with install and stability has been wonderful. Runs Axis Camera Station with 10 cameras on 24/7 motion detection like a dream. Upgraded from a Core i5-2500k.
Summary: If you are not overclocking, this is a better-featured chip for the same money when compared to the i5-3570k.
Pros: Solid, reliable, full-featured 4-core Intel. 8mb cache, all the virtual knobs, top-of-the-line ivy bridge graphics. Runs reasonably cool with stock cooler, testing with a 4-core prime95 load, temps hold under 68 degrees centigrade. Okay, so I'm not a gamer, but this chip makes for a very sweet "mini-xeon" workstation in my itx build. Used for heavy programming/compiling, testing/qa, virtual machines, photo-editing, and the usual desktop/multimedia usage as well. All s...
Cons: Lack of hyper-threading is the only feature missing from this entry-level xeon. Often this chip is not in stock, I had to wait at least a week for it to show up again. Almost gave up!
Pros: Running strong on an intel C216 chipset motherboard from Asus (the only one). Used as a file server w/ ARECA 1280ML card and 20 each 1TB WD enterprise level HDDs. Everything is rock solid running WHS 2011 SP1. Great for a full home backup of 6 computers and a center for all DVD/Blu-ray/TV, and music recordings.
Summary: Friend of mine, said it wouldn't make much of a gaming proc, but Skyrim and all are outstanding!!
Pros: Installed this in a Asrock Z77 Extreme 4. Stock heatsink was just ok. I installed a Coolermaster 212 EVO, and the idles were about 29-31c on each core, load aprox 40.. P4000 on the cpu and VirtuMVP w/6950 2gig is awesome. I opted for a Xeon, just because...Thanks Egg for the delivery and all that you've done...
Summary: Ich habe mir diese CPU gekauft da diese Preiswert (€ 210), ausreichend Leistungsstark (4-Kerne mit 8MB L3-Cache) und eine integrierte HD P4000 Grafikeinheit hat. Im Idle beginnen die Temperaturen der 4 CPU-Kerne bei 33-35grad Celsius bei einer Raum-Temperatur von 25grad Celsius. Im Stresstest (alle 4-Kerne bei 100% Last mit HeavyLoad) bekomme ich die CPU-Kerne auf maximal 60-63grad Celsius.
