Clearly a Used Processor Advertised as a New Boxed Processor, that Box to the Left should be Bubble-Rap and Scotch Tape

Summary: ****P L E A S E R E A D **** This is the 3rd Intel Xeon E5645 Processors that I have purchased. The first two were purchased from NewEgg.com and came in Intel packaging with a genuine Intel warranty, instruction booklet, and Intel Xeon inside decal.
Summary: Just a little bit about my build: Intel S5520HCT SSI EEB Mother board Intel Xeon E5645 Processor Intel SC5650BRPNA Pedestal Chassis Intel BXSTS100A Active Heat Sink with fan Kingston KVR133D3D4R9SK3/24GB -- Quantity 2 Running ESXi 5.1 Update 1 and vCenter 5.1 And...
Pros: Good price for 6 cores Perfect for my Intel S55020HCT SSI EEB mother board Have had zero problems with it Supports Virtualization and Hyper Threading A real work horse processor Only 80 watt
Summary: I thought about getting a quad AMD server setup instead, but I'm so glad I got the intel. Not that there would be anything wrong with AMD, but this one surely didn't let me down in any aspect. Ignorance is bliss!
Pros: I bought 2 of these back in November 2011. The price hasn't budged much and the stability of my dual xeon ESXi5 machine has been terrific. No problems, super fast even when running upwards of 20 VMs at the same.
This processor screams. No need to upgrade anytime soon.

Summary: I am not sure why the other person rated this processor 1 star for a packaging issue. That isn't necessarily the manufacturers fault as most of the time the distributor is who packages the product unless you buy direct from Intel.
Summary: Wish I had two or more of these. Can't go wrong for the price. Works on SR2 with a E5620, but BCLK is some what limited in the range of 200 to 211Mhz depending on MB, could be less in your case.
Pros: Still running great, Was able to run this on a Asus P6X58D Prem with a BCLK of 221Mhz That's almost 4.2Ghz 4195 actual at a vcore of only 1.275v 24/7 load stable Folding for the past year.
Summary: No heatsink included, as with most Xeons. I run a pair of these on my eVGA Classified SR-2.
Pros: These are not the top-end chips but here is what they are, real fast for the cash, they 'out of the box' self-overclock to 2.9Ghz when under load, are super power efficient for Xeons, run cool when idle but can run well over 60c under load. (Intel lists the max temp at 72c or more if I remember c...
