Intel Xeon E3-1240 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 69W Server Processor BX80637E31240V2

Pros: Very fast chip. Ivy Bridge 22nm, 4-Core, 8-Threads, ECC capable, disabled graphics, its actually cheaper than its desktop equivalent without ECC by $50. Great Value.

Cons: No cons I can seriously gripe about.

CPU runs hot when under Stress testing on all 8 threads because of thermal paste issues. But for the usage I subject this CPU under, this is not a issue to deduct eggs over.

Its hard to find fault with a CPU that works out of the box.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this CPU with an ASUS P8C WS (with C216 chipset) and 32 GB Kingston DDR3-1600 ECC memory because I wanted ECC given there is so much memory on my new build. Operating under Windows 7 Pro for over a year, I have not, REPEAT NOT, experienced one Blue Screen Of Death.

With ECC, this is a very stable system.

Application crashes are extremely rare.

4 out of 5 eggs Decent Motherboard for Graphics Design 11/17/2014

This review is from: ASUS P8C WS LGA 1155 Intel C216 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I found this motherboard to be reliable for a workstation build I have been running for over a year. Pleased with this motherboard except for a glaring pro.

Accepts ECC memory with E3-1240 V2 Xeon Processor. I am currently running 32GB of Kingston DDR3-1600 memory.

Very stable. Very, very few crashes with Windows 7 Pro and Fedora 20.

Cons: The sound chip picks up interference from the Video Card which is very annoying. For a motherboard of the cost that ASUS commands, I expected better design of the sound circuitry having better EMI resistance. A separate Creative Sound Card fixed the problem. This costs an egg in an otherwise flawless performance.

Other Thoughts: Once the latest BIOS is installed, this motherboard is very reliable and accepts all of the devices I have attached to it.
