5 out of 5 eggsbetter than an I7

Pros: works well in a z97M gaming mobo by MSI. works just fine with 1600 DDR3 ram in XMP mode. i have a H-60 cooler on it and hits 140F under load and 80F at idle in a cramped case with no air flow....

Cons: none...i bought this instead of an I7 a year or so ago. it out performs the compared I7 in my eyes and cost me less at the time...

Other Thoughts: paired with a 750TI, 16Gb's of 1600 RAM and two SSD's in raid, in one of those small Bit Fenix costs more than my FX-8350 build, but half the size and way more stable...i still like the FX-8350 better however...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat server CPU at affordable price

Pros: Replaced my aging home server system with this CPU (MB/RAM/SSD/Graphics as well). Day and night performance difference.

- Cheaper than comparable i7 series, E5 series
- Provides similar performance compared to E1276 which is another 50$ more
- Less heat (ony 84w)
- Socket 1150/DDR3 reduces overall price compared to latest generation which require DDR4
- Rock solid performance
- Every bit of intel virtualization flag enabled on this CPU (compared to desktop series)
- 3.5GHZ out of box with no compelling need to overclock (at least for my purposes)
- running fedora 22 non-stop for a week.
- Kde Plasma 5.3 works smoothly

Cons: None noted so far

Other Thoughts: Have built so many computers in the past and this is by far the smoothest build I have ever experienced. Just assembled everything and started the computer. Installed Fedora 22, Couple of virtual machines, setup my samba shares, printers etc, within 45 minutes. Planning to add 3-4 more virtual machines to build a hadoop cluster

Un-scientific comparison

Old H/w - Intel Q6600/Asus A8N-SLI Motheboard, Samsung 830 SSD, 8GB RAM

- Linux installation and provisioning - 30 - 60 minutes
- PFSense & Untangle installation - 30 minutes
- System boot - 3 minutes
- Untangle startup - 6 minutes inside vm

New HW - Xeon E3-1246, ASRock Z97 Fatality Pro MB, GSKill 16GB, Muskin Reactor 250 and EVGA Geforce 750

- Linux installation and provisioning - 5 minutes
- PFSense & Untangle installation - 5 minutes
- System boot - 30 seconds
- Untangle startup - 20 seconds

I can now have my startup from 0 to all the way under 2 minutes (previously it used take at least 10-12 minutes). All with just 1% of CPU consumption. :)

5 out of 5 eggsgreat render farm processor

Pros: includes onboard graphics.
roughly similar to the well known 4790k in benchmarks.
very useful for render slave nodes when you want to do computer graphics rendering on a farm setup.
supports ecc.

Cons: these processors are pretty good, no problems seen so far in almost a year of use

Other Thoughts: this is a good choice if you need some a good ecc supporting processor for a server or render farm setup.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing speed and stability

Pros: this Cpu is stable fast and able to handle everything I throw at it. I used it in a home server build running windows 8.1 until win 10 launches

Cons: its not free lololol

Other Thoughts: if you are looking for a stable server or high end workstation get this.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage piece garbage company

Pros: none

Cons: Worked for all of 2 months. When I returned under RMA, intel said I sent an i7 when my rma was for the 1246. not sure how there could be a mix up when the model is engraved in the metal of the piece itself. Also took 2 weeks of useless online support sessions to get that information. This is garbage sold by dishonest people. I will never buy intel again.

Other Thoughts: now im out the shipping, the hassle, and i have to buy a new mobo to get amd.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall Workstation Build

Pros: Works with most 1150 boards with integrated video out.
Relatively low power draw for a high powered CPU.
Uses Intel 4600 graphics engine at 350~1250MHz.
Supports secure instructions for professional use.

Cons: None that I know of other than some heat under full load.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a computer built to workstation specs. I needed a small machine that could not fail, even under full load 24/7/365. Knowing Intel's reputation from experience, and also knowing the robustness of the Xeon CPU, I realized that, since my motherboard, the Gigabyte B85M-D3H rev 1.1 supported the FCLGA1150 Haswell Refresh Xeon, the choice was a no brainer. Alternatives for home users would be the i7 4790S or its big brother the i7 4790K, which are very similar but designed for home use. Down clocking the chip to 3.2GHz to get even 2:1 clocks between the CPU and the 32GB of 1600MHz RAM should yield a very stable system that runs cool and quiet, even under the stress of continuous professional use. It should last for many years.

5 out of 5 eggs4790 - $30 = :D

Pros: - Efficient
- Fast as hell
- LGA 1150 Socket

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Was looking to upgrade from my AMD FX 4170 after a good three and a half years of service. Did some researching and came across this chip. It's a i7 4790 for $30 cheaper. I got mine for $279.99 and paired it with a cheap Z97 board, and couldn't be happier!

4 out of 5 eggsOne of the Best Deals

Pros: Quad core with hyperthreading makes this comparable to i7 but cheaper. perfect if you aren't planning to overclock

Cons: The IGP is Intel's HD P4600. This specific IGP is not recognized by the majority of programs for hardware acceleration of video encoding. I bought this CPU because i wanted a better value than an i7 as i wasn't planning on overclocking, but wanted an IGP for Screen capturing software, and the occasional video transcoding.

Other Thoughts: I don't use the IGP for video, and after some more research, the cause of the fault is that when the IGP isn't in use, it returns a state 07 or something instead of available.

Other than the IGP everything works as advertized and I couldn't be happier. If you aren't planning to use the IGP and are looking for a Xeon, buy the E3 1241 V3 or the E3 1231 V3

5 out of 5 eggsStill OK for gaming

Pros: Usefull for multi core processing, Runs maya and other 3d rendering programs with very few problems. Games well also, doesnt seem to stutter at all and increses physics benchmarks by 2000 poitns in 3dmark VS a 4.7ghz amd 6300

Cons: No OC but you know that going in

Other Thoughts: Having come from a strictly AMD diet for the last 2 years the threaded efficency of the intel based cores is much more stable and performs mass simulation (liquid, wind, ect,ect ) inside and outside of video games at a much higher rate than its AMD counterpart,

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A step up over the Ivy bridge E 3.8 GHz 4/8 core we had as our main windows server 2008 r2. while it didn't change the number of hyper-v VM's we run, they all respond much faster and there is far less input lag. Vt-d works just fine for us on the asrock C226WS+ and it seems to handle the dual adaptec 7805's data access better. Throughput over the onboard+ addon quad-port intel NiC in 5x teamed setup went from 370MBps to 580MBps off the 8x kingston ssd raid 10 array.

Cons: It doesn't support dual-socket or higher motherboards.
