DBDulin, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: Upgraded my 2009 Mac Pro from quad to 6 core processor. Also added a total of 32 GB RAM and an SSD for my VMWare files. All work and play well together. All the upgrades are visible on YouTube if you want to do it yourself.

Xeon W3680 VS i7 980X

JJ, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: Xeon W3680 and i7 980X are practically the same chip. The main difference between the two is ECC capability, which is disabled in i7 brand as it is marketing for home computing VS Xeon brand is marketing toward workstation/servers in commercial sector. ECC function provides stability that is crucial for data servers running 24/7 all year around. It's not an important feature for home computing.

Unlocked Xeon blew me away

Quicksilver, Amazon
29 July 2011
  • Summary: After putting this into my EVGA Classified I've managed to clock it to 4.25Ghz with 1.35V. The unlocked multiplier makes overclocking incredibly simple,well worth the price paid for this CPU.
