5 out of 5 eggsA solid performer

Pros: 1. Low power consumption, acceptable temperatures with an aftermarket cooler, even under load.
2. Incredible value, performance of a higher end i7 at i5 prices (4 Cores plus Hyperthreading)
3. Omission of integrated graphics lowers the cost.
4. Compatible with consumer grade motherboards, does not require ECC ram modules.
5. Socket design allows a WIDE variety of aftermarket coolers to be installed. (I installed an ancient socket 1156 cooler from 2009, it fit like a glove).
6. Very stable, at least in my configuration.

Cons: 1. Stock cooler is pretty worthless.
2. CPU is not meant to be overclocked.

Other Thoughts: This CPU is a budget powerhouse!
I am very happy with the performance and the price!

Here's my current setup for compatibility reference.

CPU - Intel Xeon E3-1231v3
Motherboard - Gigabyte G.1 Sniper H6
RAM - 12GB (2x2GB 2x4GB) G.Skill PC3 - 19200
Video Card - NVidia eVGAGeForce 660 Ti
SSD - Intel 320 Series SSD - 160GB
PSU - SeaSonic SSR-650RM
Running Windows 8.1 Pro - 64bit.

PC is being used for moderate gaming, video editing and encoding. It performs flawlessly and is very stable.

5 out of 5 eggsWroks great. Low temporature

Pros: 1231v3 is the most price efficient choice along with 4690K.
Quad core
Can run any single core game smoothly
Hyper threading

Cons: Cannot overclock
Lower clock than 4690k

Other Thoughts: If you are going to play Battlefield 4 (multi-core games) edit videos or encode the large sized fiels, and do lots of multi-taskings.
Xeon is the best option.
However, Xeon cannot overclock.
So if you want to overclock and take the advantage of higher amounts of clock, Go for 4690k.
1231v3 - future multicore based program
4690k - single core based program

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Good CPU

Pros: Runs cool with a good cooler and super fast. Good value.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: I have mine in a Gigabyte H97M-D3H and it is running great! This CPU is fast and costs less than a full fledged i7 yet performs just as good or maybe better in some cases. I chose this over an i5 and am glad I did. I have an Arctic Cooling 7 Pro Rev. 2 on it with the pre-applied thermal paste and that's all it takes!

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect except for heat

Pros: 1. Fast
2. Intel
3. No pins like AMD, they are on the motherboard instead
4. Looks awesome
5. Part of the refresh line-up, a modern CPU for sure

Cons: 1. Runs hot, even with after market cooling.
2.Must undervolt to properly get temperatures under control.

Other Thoughts: I used to have a 3770k that ran at 1.250 vcore at 80c full load using Prime95 (delidded of course) with an NH-D14. Guess what this thing can do? Using the Hyper Evo 212 and 140mm fan it runs with an offset of - 0.075 and reaches temps of 82c full load! That makes the final vcore on full load 1.053-1.058! At vcore 1.140 it was going over 90c easily even with an H100! You can see now the Haswell line-up is clearly inferior because of the thermal paste and voltage regulator causing absurd temps. Now I did use CPU-Z to check the wattage and these are temps achieved in boost mode with all cores in sync running at 3.8ghz with a wattage of 110 according to CPU-Z. This thing is rated for 80 watts and at that level it would be around 70C I am pretty sure, but it looks like they don't take into account the boost mode when rating it's wattage which is the problem here. I will be very careful buying any CPUs in the future because the use of thermal paste here is ruining Intel's thermals.

5 out of 5 eggsi7 performance and features at an i5 price

Pros: - Fast
- Hyperthreading
- Inexpensive compared to i7
- Lower TDP than i7
- Decent operating temperatures (~70C load with Noctua NH-L9i + AS-5 in mini-ITX case)

Cons: - No integrated GPU
- Locked multiplier
- Not supported by all desktop motherboards

Other Thoughts: The E3-1231v3 is essentially a i7-4770 without the integrated GPU at an i5 price. Definitely the best price/performance ratio if your motherboard supports Xeons (usually works even if not officially supported).

Xeons are also supposedly binned for stability, which is great for a non-overclocking CPU.
