Works Well

  • Summary: What a decent CPU. I needed to rebuild my existing server software on more powerful hardware because the older hardware was running out of steam. I used this CPU with a motherboard that supports SATA 3.0 interfaces and connected them to two (2) SSDs to support the OS in a RAID 1 configuration and it worked well. I also purchased a SATA PCIe RAID Card to support some large data disks in a RAID 1 configuration. This is an eight core CPU.

Perfect for a home server

  • Summary: This is an excellent CPU for a home server. Low power, low heat output and of course low cost but still high performance. Currently running ESXi smoothly and using VT-d, couldn't be happier.

  • Summary: Xeon processors in home desktops are under rated. Received as described in timely manner. Put this in my new machine and has been running like a charm for over a month.

Kicks butt!

  • Summary: I've had my E3-1230 for about 6 months now and love it. Since I purchased, the price/performance has been unbeatable. It is at the core of my pet project to build a lower power super computer and with the performance this gives using only 80W it's lived up to everything I've wanted.

The greatness of E3-1230

Anth, Amazon
6 May 2012
  • Summary: After careful consideration, I bought this processor for my desktop. It works in my ASUS P8Z68 motherboard with zero issues. The Intel Xeon E3-1230 is in my opinion, the best processor right now for the money. It scores over 8.4k on passmark, which is significantly faster than a fully-overclocked 2500k. It uses little power and has little heat, because it doesn't have integrated graphics.

XEON Love

Greg Maron, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • Summary: Dear Intel, Thank you for making a Sandy Bridge Xeon that is just right for me. I love its 3.2GHz, 8M cached, quad-core, Hyper-Threaded, VT-x and VT-d goodness. It does everything I want, and nothing I don't. We are like that guy from Inception and the naked chick in that boat movie. Perfect. It's 80W TDP has meant so much to me as its fans whirl semi-silently under my bed, whispering sweet nothings to me as I sleep.

Excellent Performance, Great Value

Marvin M., Newegg
6 January 2012
  • Summary: Using in an Intel S1200BTL server motherboard. The entire system idles at ~60 watts, and the highest peak I've yet observed was only ~110 watts. The four cooling fans in the 4U rackmount chassis loaf along (quietly) at 40% of rated rpm. FWIW, the Micro$oft performance index measured for the CPU is 7.6 (out of a possible 7.9).
  • Pros: - 4 cores + hyper-threading = 8 threads of execution
  • Cons: None noted.

Impressive

Numa S., Newegg

  • Summary: As of this posting, I have to agree that this is hands down the best bang for the buck for a server CPU. Do the homework and know the truth!
  • Pros: Using in a SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCM-F-O with 16GB of RAM. I'm very impressed as I'm using this processor to host a simple ESXi box here at home. No problems to speak of and everything is running ohh so cool. The CPU fan that came with the processor was junk and defective. I am not taking an egg off for that though because I LOVE THIS PROCESSOR!
  • Cons: None
