Flawless

Scott A., Newegg

  • Summary: Requires non generic heatsink. Research before purchase and save yourself a return. At 1k I think Intel could have provided one...
  • Pros: Stable. Utilized in Linux server build for both data backup and media streaming. Underutilized for what it is asked to do.
  • Cons: Chaaaching!!! This baby is very expensive. In hindsight, this was way overkill, but that can't be put on the chip.

  • Summary: I have this processor in an HP Z620. I'm running Windows 2012 and Hyper-V with 3 VMs. I usually have 2 VMs running at all times and this proc doesn't skip a beat. I tried to beat it up with some video encoding, code compiling and it just grinned, slapped me with the backside of it's large, muscular...

  • Summary: If you have the money please do this life long computer geek (who still rocks a Pentium processor) a favor and buy this! Intel is a wonderful company with great products and this chip is no exception.

Wow

  • Pros: Very nice, a pair of these babies really screams with my Intel SC2600COE motherboard.
  • Cons: Bought 4 units, had to warranty replace one with Intel (just suddenly died) but now it's all good. Warranty service is excellent.

Dell R720 with E5-2650

Denise P., Newegg
11 March 2013
  • Summary: 1600mhz ram doesn't recognize with dell r720 and windows server 2012 with Kingston 1600mhz ECC ram from newegg- probably dell.
  • Pros: Processor is very fast, but make sure you have fast drives. This thing really screams with memory based applications and 15k/ SSD based apps.
  • Cons: Slow clock speed, but 8 cores - still well worth the $

Intel Xeon E5-2650 2GHz/20MB/5GT/s (BX80621E52650) S2011 BOX

  • Conclusion: Эта модель в первую очередь для рабочих станций. Люди не только в игрушки играют, и Фейсбуки гребанные юзают... Есть наука.... Мат-расчеты, и.т.д Для рабочей станции самое то. Посотрите каталог DELL? Там есть прилестные рабочии станции на этом камне. И пора запомнить. Сервер это все что рекавое.
  • Pros: недорогой, мало греется, не требует жидкостных решений по охлаждению. INTEL- что тоже плюс.
  • Cons: не продаются в Украине китами по 4, и 8 -штук. приходится самому подбирать, что долго и дорого. Больше минусов нет.
