  • Pros: Handles anything I throw at it.
  • Cons: Have to get something different than the stock heatsink. I've gotten this up to 190F just watching 720p flash videos. I know Flash videos don't use resources efficiently, but wow. Buying a thermaltake closed-loop water cooler now.

  • Summary: Mated with an ASRock Z77 board (Item N82E16813157306) nVidia GTX550ti by Asus (item N82E16814121435) 8GB (4GBx2) G.Skill DDR3-1600 (item N82E16820231428) Corsair Force 3 90GB (item N82E16820233204) A couple of 1TB storage drives Antec Neo Eco 620 (item N82E16817371031) Packed in NZXT Source 210...
  • Pros: Fast! Like, should be ticketed fast! 4 cores, 8 threads, all recognized on a Z77 board in Windows 7 Home Premium. Has a tweaked version of the HD 3000 graphics, better optimized for work instead of gaming, so Quick Sync is better. Also, Quick Sync is amazing! Able to transcode video while playing...
  • Cons: UPS delivered it a day early. Oh wait, that's not a bad thing.

  • Summary: Combined with ASUS P8BWS, 16GB of kingston ECC RAM, noctua D14 and a Powercolor Radeon 7770 GHz-Edition makes for a whisper quiet, dependable home workstation. Running nearly all day every day for a year without so much as a hiccup.

  • Summary: I bought it for its ECC support, but if you're thinking of doing the same know that this also requires ECC RAM and ECC-capable motherboard.
  • Pros: Fast, cool-running processor with decent integrated video. Bought it for my personal computer rather than an i3/i5/i7 because it supports ECC. Easy to install; the heat sink and fan that come with it are also easy to install.
  • Cons: None

very good home server processor

18 January 2012
  • Summary: I am using this in my home server running WHS 2011 and it provides very good performance. Due to the fact that it is idle most of the time, it runs very cool: 30-40 degrees (C). The AES-NI instruction set provides very good BitLocker performance (I am using BitLocker on all my drives, including the...

  • Summary: Good processor so far. Running it 24/7 crunching on a intel mini-itx board. There arent many confirmed options for this chip to use motherboard and memory wise. it doesnt need ECC to run, standard ddr3 is fine.
  • Pros: Fast. Cheap compared to 2600k. server chip so 24/7 stable. very efficient speed vs power
  • Cons: lack of motherboard options. locked multiplier. still trying to get turbo boost running correctly. lack of reviews and hardware tested compatibility have to risk it yourself

Mein Geheimtip !

Stefan, Amazon
25 November 2011
  • Summary: Diese CPU ist mein Geheimtip für alle die sich einen I5-2500, oder I7-2600 kaufen wollen und so wie ich kein grosser Freund von overclocking sind...nur 200 Mhz weniger als der I7-2600, dafür HD3000 Grafik und günstiger. Die 3,2 GHz und Hyperthreading reichen völlig aus.

Maschiert gut los das Teil :)

  • Summary: mit etwas über 200€ der güstigste vollwertige i7 (8MB Cache +HT). Läuft bei mir auf einem Asrock Z68 Exteme3 Gen3, dementsprechend aber ohne ECC Speicher. Ansonsten sind offenbar alle Features funktional (VT-d, AVX etc).
