5 out of 5 eggsfast power

Pros: cpu mark passmark in a asus ws motherboard 15779,
smooth and flawless operation

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: i though the 1366 xeons were bad but this baby will rock your socks off. this processor can handle anything and that includes games and of course it crunches

pcpower cooling

i took to plunged and tried and now using windows 8 only because it works better, faster and stable so far more so then 7 with this setup. even though i have one program the didnt run on it.:/ cpu mark higher, graphics mark higher, hd mark higher. everymark higher in 8 plus it just runs smoother. hardware a perfect match. a nice plus.
i can now officially say i finally have dream machine.

now i just need time off from work to play

5 out of 5 eggsSingle CPU cmputers only

Pros: Very Fast, 12 threads

Cons: Can't run in a dual CPU setup

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these hoping to put into a dual CPU tyan board. Unfortunately these CPUs are not "licensed" by intel to run two of them in one system, so only one CPU would ever show up in the system. Because I didn't do my research I am stuck with 2 $1,000 CPUs that I can't use, but that is my fault. Don't make the same mistake.
