Pros: *Supports a decent amount of ram
Cons: I don't know.... No real drawbacks to this processor.
Other Thoughts: Get this if you aren't planning on getting a video card. I got this on sale for quite a bit less than its current price, but it's still a steal. If getting a video card get the 1230V2... Probably the best price/performance in a LONG time. I have had this running 24/7 in a virtualization environment (5+ VMs at ALL TIMES) for the last 6 months and I haven't had any issues thus far. I really wouldn't jump for the 1275V2 as it's 100 dollars more for a minuscule increase in performance. Thanks Intel and Newegg!

Xeon E3-1245 V2
Pros: - Runs cool
Cons: - Stock heatsink sucks
Other Thoughts: I bought this Xeon for a home lab server so I could host multiple VMs for testing. I at first was running ESXi 5.1 with no problems but have since migrated over to Windows 2012 with Hyper-V and it runs just as smooth. I haven't fully set up my lab environment with all the VMs that I want running at once, but I have run four (Win7, Win8, BT5, Ubuntu) and it didn't have any performance drops. I did run prime95 on it for a little while and it averaged around 50C with a 23C ambient but that was with a Noctua and not the stock heatsink.

Pros: Gets the job done.
Other Thoughts: Heatsink isn't great, turbo boost won't activate if the processor is too hot, which it usually is under high load with this heatsink. So it goes.

Pros: Processor is super fast.
Cons: I took a half egg off because the processor won't work with 32GB of RAM, it does not support 8GB sticks. I don't know if this is actually a motherboard issue or a processor issue, but since the memory controller is on the CPU, I'm guessing it is a problem with the CPU.
Other Thoughts: It is a shame that Intel killed overclocking on all but a few K series processors. Everything should be overclockable, and this is one of the major reason I'm building mostly AMD computers. Intel might be the better performer, but there really isn't anything an AMD processor can't do and I like being able to overclock and tinker with my processors a little.
