5 out of 5 eggsWear Protection

Pros: 8 cores / 16 threads, makes rendering a breeze. $$$ is high but you don't get what you don't pay for. Really lets crossfire cards breathe.

Cons: Needed a towel to clean up after the dirty tasks required to pay for this.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazingly fast beyond anything i could imagined

Pros: Works with X79 chipsets. Running with liquid cooling temp average 32° . Was a plus for me when my CPU benchmark passed the E5 2690.

Cons: I really don't negative to say I do believe it is worth that price.

Other Thoughts: was able to overclock but it ran better at default settings.

5 out of 5 eggsLightning Fast

Pros: 8 cores
Turbo mode to 3.8 ghz

Cons: Can not overclock
Only supports 1600 memory. ( Memory can be overclocked in bios of motherboard).

Other Thoughts: Awesome for gaming and video and/or image editing. Sure you can get a overclockable 6 core i7-3970X. But that still can't beat this 8 core processor. Remember that a pc has many other processes running in the background while you are gaming. This 8 core handles games flawlessly and still has cores to burn to run other stuff at the same time. Runs all games on Ultra settings with no lag. Got this processor with an ASUS P9X79-E WS and two Titan graphic cards. I stomp on max settings for games.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and powerful

Pros: These are incredibly fast. I use 2 of them in a Supermicro X9DAE board with 256GB of ram. I get a cinebench score of 26.10. These processors will handle anything that you throw at them. I use dual Corsair H80i's for cooling.

Cons: Price. Really, almost 2 grand? I suppose with no competition at the top, Intel can charge whatever they want.

Other Thoughts: These are a great buy for those who need the power. The rest of the people can settle for Intel's 2011 or 1155 Core i7 series. If Intel released multiplier unlocked 2600 series Xeons, I'd be first in line to get them. When they launched the skulltrail board with the QX9775 cpu's, they were on a roll. I wish they would continue the trend. Give us something more overclockable and more powerful, Intel! I realize that most people that own these are not interested in overclocking them. But shouldn't the challenge be there anyway?

5 out of 5 eggsPre install excitement!!!

Pros: I own one! (Its still boxed, waiting for the machine to drop it into). I'm excited to see what this thing can do (Will be used in an HP Z420 Workstation as an ESX5.1 host.)
Saved over $1200 ordering this processor after the fact on new egg instead of purchasing during the custom HP build.

Will post a better review once its operational.

Cons: To the average Proc buyer, this would be a very, very expensive purchase, that they probably wouldn't be able to utilize fully. But I'm going to tax it heavily, and I SAVED money buying this on new egg vs during the HP not a Con for me.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fast for C4D

Pros: Very fast proc, especially if you use two. 32 threads @3.1Ghz destroys the C4D benchmark.

Cons: not 3.2Ghz ? :)

5 out of 5 eggsDecimates Cinema 4D / Adobe CS Workloads

Pros: 16 physical cores (2-Socket WS Mobo) and 128GB of RAM take your productivity to entirely new levels. If your workstation is a *tool* and not a toy, these 8-core E5 CPUs decimate even the vaunted 3960X 6-core units by an order of magnitude in C4D and AE/Premiere. If you're a video and/or 3D motion graphics pro, just get two of these via any means possible -- sell blood, superfluous appendages, excess children, or whatever you need to do to get these. You'll make enough back in productivity gains to buy them back later.

Cons: 150 watts is a LOT of energy for thermal regulation, exacerbated when you have TWO of these monsters. Your entire build needs to revolve around sufficient cooling, as 300 watts of heat will turn the inside of your case into an "Easy Bake" oven without sufficient airflow. This is the first CPU that I felt really demanded the use of liquid cooling, which I have avoided until now. Obviously, a 1000+ watt PSU is also necessary now when you begin to cram GPU's, RAM, and 15K SAS drives (along with SSD). Oh yeah, at $1800/each they should ship with a free supply of Vaseline -- if you know what I mean.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is my overwhelmingly preferred vendor of choice, but when I got these they just happened to be out of stock that day. Figures.

We put together a $9,000 build including the Mobo, CPUs, 128GB RAM, 600GB 15K SAS drives (6x RAID 10), Vertex 3 SSDs, a used Quadro 6000 from some auction site, Corsair 1200W, plus monster case and Noctua fans.

RESULT: A Cinebench R11.5 Score of **31.02** -- a new record for a dual socket machine. Suck on that!

5 out of 5 eggsExpensive. Hot. Fast. Awesome.

Pros: Tears through multithreaded apps. Fantastic for doing graphics software development with lots of multithreaded code. Makes it easy to see when your code is able to saturate the CPU and scale well with respect to core count. Further performance work can then target reducing overhead (minimizing locks and synchronizaton), and increasing throughput (optimizing inner-loops, and special-casing high-impact combinations of general rendering kernels).

Even better, if you don't want to get 2 of these, you can get 1 and run it on a regular single socket LGA2011 motherboard.

Cons: Expensive. Runs hot. Multipliers are locked hard, so no overclocking.
