Hot PowerHouses

Dan D., Newegg
18 September 2012
  • Summary: Since i have 2 of these next to each other they were running hot. Had stock intel heatsinks with fan but after a 20 min rendering got up to 80c. Put a new water cooling unit in and now never goes above 50c
  • Pros: These things just pump out power. got 2 of these running on my home computer for me to do renderings! it takes no time at all having all 8 cores maxed out at 100%
  • Cons: Runs Hot! but can be cooled properly

Running for over a year straight

DC., Amazon
2 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this processor as part of a server I built for my buisness startup. It has been used on a Supermicro motherboard in a Supermicro case with a basic heat sink. Runs very cool, and works well for software/database application development.

Great just cool properly

Micah H., Newegg

  • Summary: Great product just make sure you keep them from melting as they heat up almost instantly.
  • Pros: Extremely fast
  • Cons: Runs extremely hot. Make sure you get a very high quality heat-sinc to go with it or else you're in trouble.

User Review

  • Pros: I got 2-CPUs, function fine with the SUPERMICRO SYS-6016T-MTLF, ESXi 5.0 installed just fine too.
  • Cons: More expensive than AMD 8-core processor. Might get more bang for the buck with AMD.

Good Server Processor

Anonymous, Newegg
23 September 2011
  • Summary: I opted to get these as opposed to some of the 2.8Ghz or 3Ghz processors becuase of price. I am rather glad I did, these handle the workload of my server very nicely. I would highly recommend these processors to anyone looking to build a server for use in the Home or a Small Business.
  • Pros: These processors are very stable with my Asus Z8NA-D6C. They have a nice amount of cache. Reasonable price.
  • Cons: They aren't 3GHz :)

Funny Reading

Erik B., Newegg
12 August 2011
  • Summary: its funny that someone put 2 of these procs in their home desktop computer for the extra power. i deployed a single E5606 in a small business HP Server recently and its running 3 windows virtual servers, all 2008R2 and one w/Exch2010, and the system is running at less than 25% load.
  • Pros: Speed, Torque, Reliability
  • Cons: No HT or Turbo

Be aware--does NOT include heatsink/fan!

Troy W., Newegg
25 April 2011
  • Pros: Great processor.
  • Cons: Just be aware that although it is a boxed Intel retail set, this particular SKU does NOT include a heat sink/fan... it contains ONLY the CPU. You will need to order thermal protection separately. I don't see that notation anywhere on the product page, and it delayed my system build.

Awesome Product

Cameron h., Newegg
23 March 2011
  • Summary: I would recommend for anyone that just needs a small home server/workstation. Keep in mind that this is only a 2.13GHz Quad-Core and doesn't include turbo boost or hyperthreading which is why I am putting two of these in my workstation for the extra horsepower in rendering.
  • Pros: I replaced my AMD 965 with this and it amazed me how well it kept up. I needed a workstation/server so I wanted a low watt and very cool CPU so I went with this. While it benchmarks lower than the AMD 965 it is much faster in real world applications. It also idles around 19C and never reaches 30C...
  • Cons: None. It's Intel Duh.
