Intel Xeon E5620 Westmere 2.4 GHz 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 80W BX80614E5620 Server Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: virtualization
the best thing about the westmere line is the built in support for aes encryption. my server uses aes for all ssl connections.
low power consumption keeps costs down

Cons: no heat sink included but thats ok because the heat sink that intel usually supplies with its processors isn't very good.

Other Thoughts: i bought the active/passive combo heat sink with arctic silver thermal paste.
i only buy intel processors.
