The Quad-Core Xeon E5630 processor, with advanced features like ECC memory support, Trusted Execution Technology and Virtualization Technology, is built to handle the ever-changing demands of a virtualized and consolidated computing environment.
Pros: Great performance and runs cool.
Other Thoughts: We are using 2 CPUs to power our Intel SR2625URLX server with 24GB RAM. This box is running Microsoft SBS-2008 Premium for 25 users.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: Good fast reliable processor. I always had been curious about Xeon overclocking, but since no boards supported it, that was just a dream. Now I have overclocked these Xeons I bought thans to EVGA's Classified SR-2 mobo. I wish Newegg had it, but others do now, and I am sure that Newegg will soon. With this combo, I have a very fast and reliable workstation.
Other Thoughts: If I was more daring, I would overclock these more. Right now, I have them running at just below the 3 gigahertz mark, but that is a very low and safe setting. Since I really do not need them to be faster, I think I will leave well enough alone for now.

Nice fast chips
Pros: These worked well right out of the box. They are very fast. They work with the exsisting 5520 chipset. They are well tested by several motherboard manufacturers for compatibility.
Cons: For the extra money, they are not that much faster than the E5620s. No CPU fan comes with it :(
Other Thoughts: If you buy these anytime soon, you might have to deal with upgrading the bios on whatever motherboard you purchase. I think that little hassle is worth it.
