They are nice chips for extending that old X58

  • Summary: Bought one a few months back for $130 bucks I think it was and tweaked it up to 4.5 Ghz with a NH-D14. They are nice chips for extending that old X58. I might use it till Skylake.

Well worthy CPU upgrade

  • Summary: I upgrade the E5606 (2.13G) on 3 year old HP ML350 G6 with X5650 (2.66G), to my surprise, the windows experience rating for CPU dropped slightly from 7.1 to 7.0, that's no biggie. The installation was relatively easy, total of 10 minutes, no screw driver involved.

Making dreams come true

JS, Amazon
9 February 2015
  • Summary: It works great! I've got it overclocked and stable at 4ghz with a VCore of 1.28V on my ASUS Rampage II Extreme. Running on Air with a Hyper 212+, max temps are 75C with Prime 95. Scores a 905 in Cinebench R15. What a great upgrade from a Core i7 920 and really cheap compared to the i7 970/980x.

ESXi is happy, my virtual machines are happy

J. M. Weatherly, Amazon

  • Summary: This processor works exactly as it should. I threw it on a Supermicro X8STE motherboard, tossed a Noctua NH-U9DXi4 on it with the appropriate mounting kit and everything is running perfectly. ESXi is happy, my virtual machines are happy, and I've got 12 threads to play with.

Great upgrade for my older socket 1366 motherboard.

  • Summary: Worked like a champ. Gave new life to my aging i7 system. It dropped right into my Asus P6t Deluxe V2 motherboard without issue. Its cool to see 12 threads on the system monitor. The supplier (Serverpartdeals) actually called me to make sure I was happy with the processor!
