5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Processor for the Price 07/30/2013

This review is from: Intel Xeon E5645 Westmere-EP 2.4GHz 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 80W Server Processor BX80614E5645

Pros: Good price for 6 cores
Perfect for my Intel S55020HCT SSI EEB mother board
Have had zero problems with it
Supports Virtualization and Hyper Threading
A real work horse processor
Only 80 watt

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Just a little bit about my build:

Intel S5520HCT SSI EEB Mother board
Intel Xeon E5645 Processor
Intel SC5650BRPNA Pedestal Chassis
Intel BXSTS100A Active Heat Sink with fan

Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
Windows Server 2008 Enterprise
Windows 2012 Server
Windows Server 2003 R2
Windows Vista

Great Stuff

Intel SC5650BRPNA Black Pedestal Server Chassis 600 watt 1+0 high efficiency, PMBus compliant 2 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The Intel SC5520HCT SSI EEB board fits perfectly
All internal Chassis cables were perfect
Not very loud for a server Chassis
Plastic cooling duct fits perfectly over the Intel BXSTS100A Active heat sink

Not a bad price for a Pedestal Server Chassis for an Intel board

Cons: There are a few accessories that you can purchase for this Chassis that did not come with it. For example I have had to purchase the redundant power supply from newegg and I may also purchase the hot swappable drive cage, all are added expenses.

Other Thoughts: Also it would be better if the power supply was rated at 750 watts instead of 600watts.... just a thought

But then again I am only using 5 drives 1 Blu-Ray player and a single 80watt CPU

Works fine, have had no problems

Intel S5520HCT SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5520 DDR3 1333
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Supports Raid 0,1,5,10 and 192GB of RAM
Dual LGA 1366 Xeon support
Perfect fit in the Intel SC5650BRPNA Pedestal Chassis
Runs quiet and normal operating temp in such a configuration

Supports running with one or two processors

Cons: Intel noted in a document, which I read on their web site that RAID is not supported when VMware is at use

Raid 5 requires an optional component from Intel to function

Other Thoughts: Form factor is not ATX, therefore I suggest getting the proper Chassis from Intel.

I am running this board as an ESXi 5.1 host, it works great

Best used in an Intel Chassis
