Built with Intel’s new 32nm microarchitecture, the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series automatically regulates power consumption and intelligently adjusts server performance according to application demand, maximizing both energy cost savings and performance. Featuring Intel Intelligent Power Technology, it reduces energy cost over single core servers by automatically shifting the CPU and memory into the lowest available power state.
In addition, built-in hardware-assisted virtualization technology with Intel Virtualization Technology FlexMigration (Intel VT FlexMigration) gives you the power and flexibility to virtualize different generations of Intel Xeon processor-based servers within the same virtualization pool, giving you the ability to migrate workloads to fewer servers at night to save energy.
If you’re looking for an energy-efficient processor that gives you the power and flexibility you need, upgrade to the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series.
Just to let you know.
Pros: Everything the other guys said.
Other Thoughts: Other reviews point out that there is no heatsink included. This is very common with server chips. I would actually be surprised if you did get one when buying a server chip.

Excellent ROI / One small note
Pros: 1. Fast for only being 1.66 ghz
Cons: 1. Thermal solution sold separately...
Other Thoughts: I gave this product 4 eggs due to the fact that unlike most Intel boxed CPU's the product lacks a CPU fan. While usually this is not a large issue due to aftermarket units, I failed to order a fan at time of purchase of this item expecting one to be in the box as usual. Newegg lacked any notes that the CPU did not come with the fan so ordering a non-oem CPU I expected a fan. So I ran all over town to find a cooler that would fit before I could use the system.

Fast Processor / No Heatsink
Pros: 1. Fast for a 1.66hz CPU
Cons: 1. Thermal solution sold separately...?
Other Thoughts: For the price of this CPU and the speed of the CPU I'm impressed with its power. Its an excellent workhorse for a Hyper-V or VMWare test platform at home.
