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.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Quad core, AMT capabale (IP KVM!), cheaper than i7

Cons: Have not yet been able to get VT-d working (may be due to motherboard). Wish there was a cheaper AMT/VT-d capable processor
