Summary: Much better heatsinks than the clip on LGA 775
Pros: Built a server out two of these, overclocked with a piece of electrician tape on the 6th pin. Works great! Have had zero problems with the whole order, all RAM and drives were working upon receipt. Load rarely goes past 30% now!
Cons: Thermal paste already on the heatsinks. Not a big problem.
Summary: Those who are Pin Modding their 1U processors are somewhat of idiots especially if they are using the stock cooling that comes with this processor. The thought of overclocking a processor in a 1U form factor boggles my mind.
Pros: Great chip for building a budget server, this will be the second budget server I have built with using these Processors.
Summary: Less power consumption than 2 separate dual core processors. Great having a system that can expand to 8 proccessor cores and 32GB of memory in an ATX form factor! Planning on added a second processor when prices drop some. Not a gaming processor or for use in single threaded apps.
Pros: Compiled linux 2.6.20 kernel (defconfig) in 90 seconds when using "make -j5". In comparison my 3GHz P4 Hyper threaded system takes > 7 minutes to do the same thing. Power consumption of whole system is 120 watts idle and 165 under load which is really good considering what this system can do.
Cons: FB Dimms for memory are more expensive and have higher latency, but are required to get past 4 dimm slot limit. Each dimm adds 3-5 watts of power consumption.
Summary: He escuchado acercad e procesadores de doble nucleo y son veloces y viendo este procesador de cuadruple nucleo, sera muchisisimo mas rapido, es algo maravilloso que la tecnologia avance mucho.
