Summary: this is a quick performer that runs stable and cool like all xeons. having a 2x system is of course much quicker than a single cpu config. this keeps pace with x5960x's AND is more stable (at least running ECC Rdimms in a HP Z600 workstation).
Summary: I have used this processor for almost 3 years, really solid, stable and fast. Now that I add this second processor to my workstation I could see how the 3D render is getting faster with 12 cores, really nice I guaranteed.
Summary: A real workhorse, and runs cool and fast! I purchased these primarily for use in rendering video, and I couldn't be happier! Well, for thousands more, I could be happier, but for the price, these processors are an excellent choice!
Summary: I'm currently running this processor in a Dell PowerEdge R710 server. The server is running Citrix XenServer and hosting a few Windows Server 2008 R2 Data Center machines. The performance on all virtual servers is great. This is a solid processor.
Summary: bin mit der CPU sehr zufrieden! habe sie auf einem ASUS P6T WS Professional am laufen und bisher nie probleme gehabt! und dank der schon damaligen performance kann die CPU auch mit dem aktuelle i7 3770K mithalten :)
