Summary: Wasn't sure if I would be happy settling for a lower version due to budget but this processor does the trick. Package was new factory sealed tray. All cores worked and no excessive heat issues. Single Idle @ 10-18w 22C Dual Idle @ 15-23w 22C
Summary: Le Xeon est un bon processeur pour gérer sa consommation. J'ai essayé de concilier puissance et énergie ce qui est difficile à trouver. Car la puissance est liée à la consommation (c'est logique). Ce processeur ne chauffe pas beaucoup et suffisant à l'utilisation des applications quotidiennes.
Summary: The package was opened several times and looked used, like someone opened a couple of hundred times a day. There was only the CPU in the box - I hope it's new - although I'm not sure. I can't believe this is being sold as a new item... CPU IS great, just not sure it's worth buying from Amazon.
