Excellent alternative to a stagnant Intel line up 10/21/2017 10:07:17 AM

Pros: Beefy (20MB L3 Cache, 16 Threads, Potential to expand to two in tandem)

Cons: Lower clock speeds then expected, the 3.8 is only for single threaded use, very little overclocking headroom.

Overall Review: After years of a stagnant Intel line up since the 2600K I decided to look for an alternative and purchased one of these with an ASUS rampage IV all second hand and it wiped the floor with at that time the 6700k I was looking at.

Great proc 3/1/2013 10:51:38 AM

Pros: Have two installed in a moderately busy web server and very pleased with performance. Running a stack of VMs. Boot swarms are no longer a problem.

Cons: Intel needs to be a bit more forthcoming about their advertising here. A 3.9 turbo assumes you've only activated one core in the bios. With all cores active, turbo is only 3.3.

Overall Review: Not a huge concern but a note for any Intel process engineers that happen to be reading this.. both chips had cardboard fibers inside the final plastic packaging tray, and under the pins.

worth it? 8/16/2012 7:38:40 PM

Pros: low TDP
excellent performance
can handle quad channel ram

Cons: Cost: the Xeon 2687W (150w TDP) is 1-5% faster, depending on your benchmark and prices at ~$1,800 rather than ~2,000

The reason this processor costs more than the 2687W is the TDP, which makes a big difference in air cooled server environment.

Overall Review: I bought 2 for quantum calculations and am not disappointed.

I have one on an ATX sabertooth x79, 64gb of 1866mhz vengeance and an H100. The other is on an mATX Asus rampage IV gene with 32GB of 1866mhz Dominatior.

Big question: why did I buy it?

For my mATX setup an overclocked 3960X hits 200-300W when matching the performance of the Xeon 2690, too much for my 12-14in case (Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E) with custom water loop that included an EVGA 580 3GB hydro.

If you need the performance but require a low heat output, this is the processor for you....but money must NOT be an issue when you start your build.
