Pros: We have two of these installed in a Supermicro H8DAi-2 board used for graphic design and digital printing. These ran nice and fast (though a few degrees C warmer than I originally expected) right off the bat. Noticeable performance increase over the two Opterion 2216 2.4 Ghz that we had installed previously.

Cons: The first set of these processors I received were faulty. They initially installed and ran fine, but we begin having strange system freezing about two days after installation. The system would eventually refuse to boot and even running Memtest would freeze within the first minute of running. Replaced the processors with the original 2216 Opterons and everything went back to normal. Newegg was very quick and satisfactory in RMA for two new processors. These new ones have been working without error for over a week.

Overall Review: Great option for those like us that needed a higher clock speed over greater number of processing cores. These do run warm, but since most dual-socket Opteron motherboards are E-ATX there should be plenty of room in a full size case for some good coolers.

Fast and hot 4/15/2009 11:37:46 AM

Pros: Fast processor.

Cons: Runs hot

Overall Review: I have this processor in a Tyan S2912 mobo that I got at Newegg. It's in a Chenbro 2U chassis, with a Dynatron cpu coooler (4.1 pitch on the mobo so options were limited)
Tested Esxi, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003 R2 64bit. All work great. Like I said fast but hot. No cpu cooler is included. Hyper-V works, Esxi works.

tons of speed 4/8/2009 7:58:22 AM

Pros: 3.0GHz, dual-core, rock-solid Santa Rosa core, Socket F.

Cons: A bit warm. I don't know why AMD needed to make these use more power. The non-SE ones were 95w just like all of the other Santa Rosa non-SE models. It works just fine, but could be cooler than 50-55C on full load.

Overall Review: Not much to say. It's a CPU, it's only dual-core, so it will likely be discontinued in the near future. I couldn't justify upgrading my 2p setup to quads, seeing as GHz is more important than cores when you get above 2 CPUs/cores.
