The Intel Xeon processor 3500 series delivers intelligent performance, automated energy efficiency, professional visualization and reliability for single-processor workstations to handle the ever-changing demands of a virtualized and consolidated computing environment. With advanced features like ECC memory supporting, direct cache access (DCA) and Intel Turbo Boost Technology, the Intel Xeon processor 3500 series is ideal for all basic workstation applications including engineering, architecture, animation, and analysis.
Pros: Fast, allows for tri-channel memory usage, stabel
Cons: Older generation of processor if that affects you at all.
Other Thoughts: I bought this processor to build myself a gaming rig, it is more than powerful enough for that and anything else I have put it through. The generation is a bit older but this processor is still running like a champ for me.

Pros: Decent price and performance for a Xeon. It is retail so you do get a heatsink & fan.
Cons: Could easily get more performance from newer i7 range for the same price.
Other Thoughts: Didn't take much time for tweaking but was able to push it to 4GHz. Would boot at 4.32GHz (180x24) but under load it would freeze up. Either way, everything I've ran so far runs smoothly. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an i7 alternative.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: I didn't need a dual-proc setup, but wanted the luxury of being able to use ECC RAM. The W3565 fits that bill nicely. If you don't need ECC, the i7 equivalent would be the i7-960.
Cons: DDR3-1066 max. You must go to a W3570/W3580 (Bloomfield) for DDR3-1333 support, but those CPUs have a significantly higher pricepoint.
Other Thoughts: The details section says that this item does not include a heatsink and fan, but that is incorrect. It is a retail box item, so it DOES come with the heatsink and fan.
