Great processor for the price

Joe, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: After comparing the E5 series, this processor seemed to be the best price performer. With the ability to boost to 3.1GHz it's faster then you would think. I love the hyperthreading and the virtualization.

Newegg specs are wrong!

Hieu D., Newegg
27 February 2014
  • Pros: Everything you would need for a server.
  • Cons: Newegg specs states that it supports up to 1866Mhz, but it does not. I should have looked on Intel's spec sheet. I had already spent the money on the 16GB 1866 MHz RAM sticks.

it's a beast

William C., Newegg
8 November 2013
  • Summary: Using two of these in a multipurpose workstation to do all kinds of very processor intensive tasks. The system is will be doing high-def video editing, audio production, 3d modeling and flow/stress simulations. I just got it up and running and haven't started working on any intense projects yet so I can't comment on what it is really capable of.
  • Pros: Intel, fast, low power consumption
  • Cons: Expensive for what it is

Awesome CPU for VMWare lab server

Joseph C., Newegg
16 September 2013
  • Summary: I had been using higher end Core CPUs for home lab VMWare white boxes, but glad I finally took the plunge and went with Xeons this time around.
  • Pros: I picked up 2 of these to build a VMWare server for my home lab. These are a little on the pricey side but will give me plenty of headroom for running lots of VMs.
  • Cons: Make sure your motherboard has the latest BIOS to support these new CPUs!! I ordered a Supermicro motherboard and it would not POST. After speaking with Supermicro support, they advised me that I had an older BIOS and would need to either send my board in to be flashed or find a Sandy Bridge Xeon. Thankfully, once I got it flashed it worked fine.

Great CPU

Sye S., Newegg
31 March 2013
  • Summary: BUY IT!!!!!
  • Pros: Fast CPU with six-cores. Have two of them installed in a Asus Z9PE-D8 and I love it. Great for 3D modeling. It does help cut render time by a little over 50%. I also use it for gaming and it works great.
  • Cons: Wish it had a higher clock speed for this price but not a big issue to take of an egg or two.

Great for Workstations

Amitabha S., Newegg
30 June 2012
  • Summary: Not for gaming. Excels in floating point based applications.
  • Pros: Amazing little chip. Six cores, 12 threads of goodness. I use this for heavily threaded computational work and it is blazing fast and runs cool as well. Would recommend.
  • Cons: Kind of expensive. But you get what you pay for.
