Pros: See comments
Cons: See comments
Other Thoughts: It's more expensive because it's a server CPU. Support for ECC RAM. Some versions have greater caches then their i5/i7 counterparts. If you're not running a database you don't need this.

Pros: I was so impressed with the work capabilities I bought a second one. Both are set up as dual boot vmware hyperviser or zen citrix server / win 7 ultimate ( as workstation ) both on asus pwbws motherbd.
Cons: Why can't i overclock these cpus? On one of them ( it might be the mother boards fault ) the Asus AI Suite 2 does not install. As the performance drop is small i have not yet persued the matter.
Other Thoughts: My passmark test is spot on. The PCPITSTOP score is fine too. Why are prices for this cpu and others with the same score of around 9000 all over the map? What do the more expensive CPU's do ( with the same Passmark Score )that commands a higher price?

Great performance, ECC support
Pros: Great performance, low power, ECC support. Cost is amazingly low for a Xeon. Rock solid stable.
Cons: I don't think it supports registered ECC memory, but that is probably why it is cheap.
Other Thoughts: Used in an ASUS P8B WS for a work computer with 16 GB of Kingston ECC RAM (KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G). Runs my VHDL simulations (single threaded, high memory bandwidth requirements) in half the time compared to a Phenom II X4 940 (3GHz quad core). Not using onboard video, using a pair of Quadro NVS 295
