Go for the 1230
Pros: Yes this is a fast chip with vt-d and support for normal or ecc memory.
Cons: One egg dropped for value due to lack of hyperthreading as the 1230 has.
Other Thoughts: This chip and the 1225 is overpriced by about 20 dollars in the IVY B lineup.

Pros: This thing is quite the beast and makes for a great gaming CPU. So far, it easily handles everything I throw at it and runs very cool, even with the stock cooler.
Cons: Absolutely none, this CPU is well worth the price.
Other Thoughts: As always, do your research before buying to make sure that this is the right CPU for your needs. It is clearly listed that this model doesn't come with HT or an integrated GPU. The lack of these features isn't a con for me but can be for some.

Pros: pretty fast for the price , it chews thru any thing I am throwing at it , paired this up with a asrock z77 pro 4 and it is fully supported . It has NO intergrated graphics , runs very cool under prime 95 , max temps are 50 deg c
Cons: I should have read the specs more carefefully as this does not have hyperthreading . My bad as I did want it. You are basicly getting a I5 Ivy
Other Thoughts: oh well , I be savin up for my next upgrade a xeon 1270v2
