5 out of 5 eggsAn Overclocking Monster

Pros: I love this processor!
After I got my cooling issues sorted out and discovered that my stock Intel heatsink and fan were not securely fastened to my motherboard I'm surprised that I never had problems with this thing in the 4 months before I discovered what was happening.
I finally decide that the stock HSF isn't worth saving and so I bought a CNPS9500 AT aftermarket cooler from Zalman.

Cons: Intel has a bad heatsink fan design lately, so if you are getting this CPU just go ahead and buy an after-market cooler too if you even think you might overclock.
While you are at it, go ahead and pick up a tube of Arctic Silver 5 too.

Other Thoughts: If you are in the market for a Core2 Dual Core then just buy one of these.
It has the large 4MB L2 cache instead of the 2MB and that will make the same processor behave about 10% faster according to most benchmarks.
I would buy one again.
My 2.4GHz is now living life as a 3.6GHz, and it is stable.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Purchase

Pros: Installed very easily. I would have rated higher if I didn't know there were better processors out there.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My old server had a P4 1.7GHz and ran at 100% most of the time. This new setup runs at 25% load. My MB is a Asus P5M2 with 4 GBs of RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsGood chip.

Pros: Well known reliability of a server based chip that runs on desktop motherboards. This is your E6600 Core 2 Duo equivalent. Will work on any core 2 duo motherboard. Overclocks to 3.15Ghz (350Mhz FSB) without any increase in voltage, and no noticeable heat increase even at full load.

Cons: None that I know of.

Other Thoughts: For a few extra bucks you can get the dependability of a server chip on your PC.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: core 2 duo E6600 equivalent, real fast at stock speeds (2.4Ghz), stock heatsink pretty quiet even at load, temps are real low - in the 20s/30s celcius, overclocks like mad (3.6Ghz for me) and could push it higher but dont want to lose the 1:1 ram ratio.

Cons: only con is that this is only a tiny bit more expensive then its consumer counterpart, core 2 duo E6600 (core 2 duo is consumer chips, xeon is server chips), thats about it. i paid only 10 bucks more, but thats it. there are no physical flaws or anything like that. its practically flawless.

Other Thoughts: i couldnt believe that this overclocked up to 3.6Ghz (400x9) very easily. just needed to up the vcore to 1.40, set my vmem to 2.1v (max rated under g.skills warranty), and the ram ratio to DDR2-800. seriously, this is the best bargain you could get. i got a F batch/stepping processor, which ive read that its not that great for overclocking but its actually really good. ive slapped on an ac freezer 7 pro heatsink (also from newegg) so the temps can be even lower. lastly, this chip works in any core 2 duo supported mobo (just like the opteron 165/170/175/180/185 series and how it worked just fine in any amd socket 939 board). just make sure it has the latest bios to support it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorthy of Xeon name

Pros: Pricing is outstanding, sub 300 for a cpu with a 4mb L2. Excellent speed even for those not looking to overclock, like the machines you'd see in a more professional environment that this cpu was targeted for. I've used many Xeons (as far back as the pentium II's) in workstations and this cpu carries with it product maturity and solid reliability that makes it worthy of carrying the Xeon name.

Price to performance is outstanding on this cpu.

Cons: none that I can see.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far.

Pros: Decently priced, and an excellent buy.

I'm not sure how much better or worse this is compared to it's C2D brothers, this cpu moves.

I could not be happier with the performance.

Cons: None complaints really. I wish intel provided a larger cpu fan.

I guess that's what newegg is for.

Definitely upgrade your cooling before oc'n.

Other Thoughts: Works great with my Asus P532-E SLI Plus mobo.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Chip

Pros: Very fast chip stock. Very good overclock from it. testing at 3.2ghz stock Vcore as I type this. (I usualy run it 3.45ghz @ 1.45V, but seeing what it can do stock..)

Cons: Wish there was a cheaper chip with 4m.. not really a con i spose.

Other Thoughts: Dont be fooled. From my experiences a Xeon will clock just as good and high as a C2D.. doesnt seem to be any advantage, more or less pick of the draw. So essentialy get what evers cheaper at time of purchase (e6600 or 3060)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: *VERY* fast, great value. The 2MB cache version is not worth the savings. The 4MB L2 cache adds 10% when at the same clock and multiplier in many applications. Then throw in the 12% clock rate boost, and you have a much faster CPU than the lower-clocked versions with smaller L2 cache.

Very energy efficient. Able to run with very low temps with fans quiet in server.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was great (as they have always been for me). My server died on Wednesday night when I turned it off because of a thunderstorm. When I tried to turn it back on, the motherboard was dead. Used PCI diagnostic card and determined memory controller on old motherboard was not able to initialize itself. Ordered from Newegg Thursday morning, received new SuperMicro motherboard, Intel Xeon 3060, and Kingston ECC DDR2 800 Friday afternoon. Server back up Friday evening. Thanks Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsIt's so fast

Pros: Man this thing is blazing fast. It used to take me 15 mins to unrar a full 4.5gb movie with my Athlon 3000+ but now it only takes me around 2!!! Booted up just fine on my Asus P5B Deluxe.

Cons: Seems to run a little hot. Speedfan says around 39-40c under normal operations, but that just might be my trailer cause I like to keep it around 70-72 degrees. I might not have put enough Arctic Silver on before I slapped on my Zalman 9500. I'm not worried about it though since this is the Xeon version of the E6600 and that's why I paid the extra 11 bucks.

Other Thoughts: This thing is actually so much faster than my old cpu I'm going to wait awhile before I bother overclocking it. I simply do not need to right now. It's so fast!
