Pros: Upgraded from a Q6600 Core 2 Quad to this was a huge upgrade.
Cons: It didn't overclock no were near as good as the Q6600 because I have to turn the voltage up to 1.49V to get 4.7 GHz stable. The Q6600 I could overclock it from 2.4GHz to 3.4GHz at 1.34V.
Other Thoughts: If something happens to your CPU while overclocking, intel will not honor it because you are breaking their user agreement by overclocking the CPU. Even though they advertised it as an overclocking CPU. You have to spend $30 to get a added on warranty to be protected if you plan on overclocking the CPU. It's stable at stock speeds at least.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: To get the PoE to work, You need a power source from a switch or an injector that is IEEE 802.3at or as known as PoE+ (or PoE Plus). To connect it, you will need a splitter to separate the data and the power to plug into the back of the server. The CPU 4 power connector is all that is needed to power this board if you do not plan on using the PoE route.
Thought some people are new at this might get confused about the PoE capabilities. I plan on buying this in the future for a pfSense server and wanted to know about this board and how to properly use PoE.
