Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 Ivy Bridge-EP 2.7 GHz 30 MB L3 Cache LGA 2011 130W BX80635E52697V2 Server Processor

Pros: These are the bee-knees.

I still peg the cpu(s) with stuff I process, but compared to my 2 generation old (i7 965) cpu with only 4 cores.. these twin beauties run something like 8-9 times faster. (with just one I guess it would be 4.5 times faster)

Cons: Had real problems getting these to run due to a required firmware update in the bios for v2 chips. Problem was, I needed an old chip that fit the socket type to get my new machine to boot. I didn't have one. So I took it to a dealer who did. Talk about a pain, though took me days and days to get it resolved. Hopefully no one else has to go through that. But now that it's good and running. All is well!

Other Thoughts: Seems like bang for the buck is there as long as you put it together yourself. if Id gotten a more normal computer it would have been 1.5-1.75ish times faster than my old machine. so considering this cpu has 12 cores, thats 3 of those machines. its really like I bought a bunch of machines rolled up in to one.

1 out of 5 eggs gotta return mine after 50 days 03/24/2007

This review is from: Niko NIKO-2206 Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1

Pros: The product had no dead pixels and had no problems with my hardware initally

Cons: The digital video input didn't seem to have the holes drilled.... just indentations where they would be drilled!

the monitors stand is fixed. (not adjustable)

After about 2 weeks it started turning itself off then on and showing a distorted screen. then it worked fine for weeks. then monitor started turning itself off and on continuously.

Other Thoughts: I guess I got a lemon
