Pros: I got this processor with a Gigabyte board for a gaming computer. First computer I've built in a couple years. I put the processor in, added the rest of the components, turned it on and it worked first time. I have since run prime 95, several graphics benchmarks such as 3d mark, and Heaven's. This processor performs as it should, and operates exactly as specified.
Cons: Price. This is price wise a +50$ version of the i7-4770K, but has the virtualization component and no capacity for overclocking. I find server/workstation components work better so, that's what i use, but if you don't want the virtualization the equivalent i7 is cheaper.
Other Thoughts: The use of a xeon processor means that i could someday use ECC ram, but the prices of the ram make that unlikely unless a great deal is found. I have owned this processor for ~6 months at the time of this review, it has been running nearly the entire time, and i am happy with the purchase.

Pros: More than twice the speed of the i5-2400 it just replaced, this is now my main processor for my Linux workstation running on a SuperMicro X10SAE board with 2 sticks of Kingston ECC ram KVR16E11/8I.
Other Thoughts: Intel makes the best processors, period.

Cons: DOA, RMA, $400 and it isn't even a paperweight
Other Thoughts: I had my whole rig set up and ... turned it on and ... nothing. Tried to RMA the CPU but NewEgg said it wasn't eligible. I guess I had to install it the same day it arrived. I replaced the CPU from a local retailer and now I'm happy. Except that now I have to warranty the CPU and figure out what to do with the refurbished part. Not happy with NewEgg.
