5 out of 5 eggs Low Power Draw, Fast, and Great for Budget Hypervisor Build 04/10/2014

This review is from: Intel Core i7-4771 Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600 BX80646I74771

Pros:

I build two systems with this processor for use as a home lab running VMware ESXi. These CPUs are great for my budget build. Really fast processors that draw little power. Supported VT-D, VT-x, even has onboard video support (saved me money and PCIe slot). I am running it in the ASUS Z87-WS motherboard with G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (F3-1600C9Q-32GXM) memory and is very stable.

Cons:

I have read these Haswell chips can run hot, but I am using a Corsair H100i Hybrid cooling system and my temps are really cool. Idles around 30 degrees Celsius and with a full load (100% utilization on all cores) using Prime95, the temps go up to around 60 degrees Celsius. Soon as you stop the tests, the temps come back down 30 degrees Celsius again immediately. You can't over clock the non-K series chips but I don't play that over-clocking game any ways.

Other Thoughts:

I would buy them again if I had it to do over again.
