The Intel Xeon X3220 quad core processor is ideal for small business owners looking for ways to grow business, manage operations more effectively and efficiently, and protect and secure one of their most important assets — information. Based on Intel’s Core micro architecture it is designed to deliver better performance on multiple application types and user environments at a substantially reduced power envelope.

You also get Intel Virtualization Technology hardware enhancements that support software based virtualization. It works with VMware, Virtual PC and XenSource and products from an increasing number of software vendors. Virtualization combined with multiple cores gives you maximum power and performance per square foot.

  • newegg Quad-core Processing with 8MB L2 Cache The Intel Xeon X3220 processor features four complete processor cores in one physical package. Significant performance headroom, especially for multi-threaded applications, helps boost system utilization through virtualization and application responsiveness. Its 8MB (2 x 4MB) L2 cache increases efficiency of L2 cache-to-processor data transfer, maximizes main memory to processor bandwidth and reduces latency.
  • newegg Supports Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) With Intel VT, one hardware platform functions as multiple “virtual” platforms. For business, Intel VT offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions. In the home, Intel VT allows creating unique user environments for multiple family members using the same platform simultaneously.
  • newegg Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) Enhances next-generation IA-32 platforms with 64-bit addressability and related instructions, allowing flexibility for both 64-bit and 32-bit applications and operating systems.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cpu, lousy packaging

Pros: Great way to zip up and old motherboard.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Wish they would package it in a safe way, felt fortunate product wasn't damaged. Box the cpu was in was crushed.

3 out of 5 eggsShipping is terrible

Pros: The CPU's work fine.

Cons: I have ordered several of these. They all come from a facility in Jonestown PA. The problem is they are packed extremely flimsily. The tape barely covers the box. There is inadequate padding inside the box. The CPU box gets tossed back and forth during the shipping process. It's a miracle they work at all. Can someone in Newegg speak to these incompetents in Jonestown?

5 out of 5 eggsBeast CPU, Incredibly stable

Pros: This processor is easily one of the best to overclock. I changed minimal settings and got HUGE gains. I'm running a P5Q-E board, 8gb ddr2-800 @ 5-5-5-18 with this chip on air cooling - Scythe Ninja 2. I'm running a multiplier of 9 against a 900mhz FSB Frequency. 3.6Ghz, ran Prime 95 for 6 hours, hit temps of 69C, under load on any game, I never hit above 61C. Running this in an Antec 300 case which is VERY efficient for cooling.

Cons: Can't think of one. This thing runs very competitively against new chips. Worth every penny.

Other Thoughts: I'm running a Q9550 in another rig with almost identical hardware and I can't get near the same increase in performance. My X3220 went from 2.4 - 3.6 without batting an eyelash. My Q9550 can only take me from 2.83 - 3.8 and is a little shaky. May ditch that chip for another one of these! Btw, it's the exact same chip as the Q6600 for anyone who didn't know, except for the temperature threshold.

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive server Processor

Pros: Very inexpensive server processor. Works with low end servers. Socket 775, quad core, great deal.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Running this processer in a 1U server as a gateway router and minor web server.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns great

Pros: Fast, Reliable, affordable, efficient

Cons: higher power consumption compared to other Xeons.

Other Thoughts: I am using this chip in a HP 120 G5 server. I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V. I'm running 3 VMs. The server has 8GB of ram. This chip handles everything - no problems. I'm running ColdFusion, MS SQL 2008, and a XP VM. I have not had any bottlenecks. This is a great chip!

5 out of 5 eggsIndy 500

Pros: after setting the Mb Bios , this CPU has been running
Like its at the Olympics , no sweat, Cool and havent skip a beat.
With a tower case I purchase 12 yrs (Elite case. You dont throw away $350.00 cases) ago and a new 500w PS , and a new facelift, place in a closet , you dont even know its there. 5 fans + CPU fan keeps this CPU at 55-60 degrees . Circulation pulls cool from the low front, two top fans pulls the upper heat out.65 degrees+/_ 3

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: 64 cache?
Recommend-Yes
MS Home server to top it off!

4 out of 5 eggsGood chip, watch the heat

Pros: Good chip. Fast.

Cons: 105W, not 95W.

Other Thoughts: Most X3220s are 95W - not this one. If you have a normal heatsink, that is not much of a concern, but be careful in 1U servers.

5 out of 5 eggsDell PowerEdge 840 CPU Upgrade

Pros: Upgraded the Dell PowerEdge 840 Intel Dual Core 3.0GHz to this Intel Xeon X3220 2.4GHZ Quad Core. Simply remove the existing CPU, clean off thermal paste, put in new CPU, apply thermal paste, and put everything back.

Intel Dual Core doesn't support VT, so 64-bit guests in VMware ESXi would not load.

Also comes with Intel heatsink (not needed in my case) and an Intel Xeon Inside sticker.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: VMware ESXi (hypervisor installed on external USB key) detected the new X3220 CPU without any issues in the Dell PowerEdge 840 with Perc 5i RAID 5 (4x250GB SATA) and 8GB RAM (4x2GB).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Clocker

Pros: Went from a Q6600 to this chip. Like night and day. Loved the old chip it was a clocker as well but when she went the newer 6600's couldn't clock for anything, so i went to this baby. Bought this chip about 4 months ago. after burning the chip in for about 400 hours i clocked her up to 3.4GHz stable with about 1.28vCore. I have run bench tests and have gotten this chip max stable around 3.7. However to preserve the life of this chip i keep her at 3.4. She is a great clocker none the less the last of the 65 behemoths, although i prefer the 65's over the newer 45's. at 3.4 im running about 58-60c under max load with OCCT. Chip is rock solid. Once you go with a server chip you will never go mainstream again

Cons: None: Just expanding on voltages.
1.28vCore
remember to raise the cpu voltage from 1.20 to 1.25 it helps stabilize the chip, i think it acts like the HT link for AMD.

Other Thoughts: DFI Blood Iron, XigmaTec S1284, eVGA GTX 280 SSC, Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800@ 1127MHZ 5-5-5-15-2T, assorted Scynth case fans, CM RC 690 Case. Custom air mods.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Processor

Pros: This processor is very nice when running in a 1U server.
With the passive cooling and the blower running at minimum speed (around 2000 RPM) the temp is only 33 at idle and 45 at full load.

Virtualization runs very nice and handles VMware server guests without flinching.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not the cheapest processor but not the most expensive either, but it is definitely a quality piece of technology and well worth the money spent. I would strongly recommend this to everyone.
