5 out of 5 eggsGaming BEAST

Pros: Just as fast as my Haswel i7 stock, but lower TDP. AND CHEAPER! I went with this ivybridge model as it was faster than the haswel ones with the turbo clock. You can over clock them a little bit via the bus, but don't expect to get too much out of it. I got mine up to 3.9ghz, was trying to go for 4 but it just wasn't gonna happen. Still my fire strike score with 2 290X cards is over 15000. Not bad at all for a 200 some dollar CPU.

Cons: Locked multiplier, but meh

Other Thoughts: I wasn't sure about Xeon for gaming, but if you can live without overclocking your cpu, this thing FLYS at stock speeds. and the Case badge is just super sick seeing XEON, specially in CPU-Z

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Don't have much to say that hasn't been said already, this is a fantastic CPU. Power consumption and heat are low, and speed is high. Using it for a FreeBSD box now and about to buy a second for a new Windows Server box.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic CPU

Pros: -Outstanding price to performance ratio, unmatched among Intel CPUs except for the Haswell E3-1230 V3
-Lower TDP without useless HD 4000 iGPU
-Xeon reliability
-Hyper-Threading
-3770 perf at 3570 price

Cons: -Fully locked multiplier (not even partially locked like 3770)
-Wildly varying PPD in F@H
-Slightly inferior performance to 3770, though can't complain because of the price

Other Thoughts: I got this CPU after initially deciding to use my old 3770, but after having to throw that in another PC this was the perfect replacement for the i7 for $100 less. Rocking this baby in a Asrock Z77 Extreme3 and cooled by a trusty NH-U9B SE2, its 69W TDP helps it stay under 55°C at maximum load. Super stable, super fast (also helped by Win 8.1 Update 1), would definitely recommend its Haswell successor based on the IVB's performance.

5 out of 5 eggsfollowup-correction

Pros: Runs fantastic.

Cons: not a con. just wanted to correct my faulty review below. Determined my Z68 motherboard had a damaged ps-2 port that was intermittently throwing a monkey wrench in things...would suddenly get weird mouse cursors accompanied with freezes...(that's what i get for tripping over my keyboard cord for the nth time! Broke the port loose)...
Dropped the processor in my son's $75 Gigabyte B75 chipset board...with a TX-3 cooler...the thing Screams in his cheapo gaming
rig! ( Hyperthreading turned off, otherwise stock voltage control, w. 8 gb ddr3 1600 memory / XMP Profile1.9-9-8-24 2T. Stays at 1.5 v. No worries, -VTT doesn't actually get changed...) Could use a bit bigger cooler, sure, but kinda fun hearing the little fan rev up in there!

Other Thoughts: These Intel's aren't shy about basking in a little heat (!), then throttle back down to cool off and save energy without missing a lick.

4 out of 5 eggssuper cool

Pros: I have owned several 2nd and 3rd gen i-series processors (including a beloved i7-2400K overclocked to 4.2 ghz)). This one holds the crown for cool, quiet efficiency at quite an appreciable level of performance. If you want a processor which will most likely run forever all 8 threads loaded to the max running at 3.5 ghz (little need for upgrading the provided stock cooler,) with all the low voltage ddr3 1600 ram you can throw at it, and you aren't concerned with having onboard Intel graphics (HD 4000 can sometimes prove tricky to implement in some situations) this processor would seem to be the performance vs.value King.

Cons: One star taken off as I wanted to bring to people's attention that this processor did give me minor problems testing on the two regular gamer-type boards I tried, with three different sets of Corsair and Crucial ram - until I turned off EIST in bios (Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3.) This seemed to alleviate what I initially felt were memory compatibility issues. Now it is running as smooth as silk with all other bios settings left normal. Speed Step and Turbo seemingly still work unchanged/as before. In fairness, this IS a processor designed for a server board...

Other Thoughts: This thing runs ridiculously cool (CoolerMaster Hyper 212) -you hardly know it's on!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Extensions for encryption and virtualization, only 69W.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is a great chip. It even beats the third generation, the lower power draw and lower price more than makes up for the marginally higher clock speed. The 1220 is a little cheaper, but gives up hyperthreading.

3 out of 5 eggsSemi-Burned out

Pros: Cheap, Hyperthreading, Virtualization extensions

Cons: CPU is acting weird now and not all features work. The system boot loops when it starts doing any real work(usually when it starts loading the OS). If I disable the Turboboost and SpeedStep features, the CPU works fine.

Other Thoughts: I originally used this in a Tech Lab setup as a VM Host, but since it isn't as reliable now, it has been "downgraded" to a NAS system.

So it still works for my needs, but this system is primarily a NAS now which does some occasional video encoding/conversion, so would be nice if SpeedStep was working so it wasn't using as much power when it is just hosting files... I don't really want to underclock it manually(which I can) due to the need for the extra speed for the conversions. Luckily this CPU isn't too power hungry, so it still works for what it does.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's... so... beautiful...!

Pros: I would give it 7 eggs if I could.

All cores get busy in a hurry, especially when gaming. But it sips power and behaves like an i7 with virtualization.

I'm glad I read about this. I'm using this in an MSI Z77MA-G45 for gaming along with a GTX-760.

The Windows Experience Index calls this proc my weakest link @7.7.

Cons: 01 Steal a dog from your local park. A nice one but not too nice.

02 Walk into a pub and complain to the barman about money problems and how you'd sell this rare, prizewinning hunting spaniel in a moment to be able to make ends meet.

03 Ask the barman to watch the dog and go up the road a while.

04 Have your mate come in after you and offer to buy the dog for tons of money.

05 Return later and reiterate your willingness to sell the dog - the barman will try to take advantage of your financial woes in obtaining this "prizewinning" dog from you for nothing so he can punt it on to your friend for huge money.

06 Take his money and leave

07 Split it with your friend.

/con

Other Thoughts: I'm glad I bought this.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: i7 performance, at an i5 price. Love this thing, use it for a machine that primarily games and multimedia creation, super fast at everything.

Cons: No onboard video, but it is worthless to me. Ummm. Stock cooler is garbage. It'll work in a pinch though.

Other Thoughts: Using an after market cooler (Cooler master Evo) the processor idles at 19-25 C and under full load never exceeds 55 C. Also, the power usage is phenomenal - Normally total power draw from the plug is 120 watts with an amd r9 280x.

5 out of 5 eggsGood So Far

Pros: Works flawlessly with MSI Z77A-G41. No issues so far. Core i7 performance, with i5 price!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have not done any form of overclock attempt and I don't think i need to.
