I bought this from another site thats cheaper....But i'd still like to leave a revew here

went from an i3 2100 to this, did not expect to notice a difference, but combined with an SSD the computer boots up so much faster, to my surprise i've noticed overall things do happen faster, considering I could not notice a difference between an i3 2100 and a i7 920 I was not expecting to see one with chip.

Anyways reasons i bought this chip, I wanted to dable in virtualisation, ideally would of bought an i7, but I feel like i saved £50, got the same chip, but no gpu, xeon's do come with a gpu if you need it, they end with a 5 opposed to a 0, 1245v2 usually being faster than a 3770 but cheaper and also includes the gpu!

Gaming performance increased by around 5-8fps in hitman absolution which surprised me as i only have a midrange 7770.
Just cause 2 fps doubled

both in 1080p!

Added those 2 games as thats all i've tried and not many people mention gaming with xeon.

For me the name xeon just sounds better than i7, its not an apple product, nor a bmw, nor a samsung tv, don't understand why so many people combine bmw gimmicks with apple's famous i, intel must of thought combing the 2 would b the ultimate sales pitch..anyways enough of that rant...

if anyone does get one and finds it running hotter than they expected, I undervolted my by 0.1v in the bios and it shaved 10 degrees of the max temps under stress testing, default voltage it was getting to 82degress, undervolted 71max, i've read around that many people have been able to get it down to 0.135v without stability issues (and furthert temp drops), if you think about it, this shaves off 20ww of load power usage, and lowers temps, same performance, its just a no brainer!

I have done extensive benchmarking after receiving this CPU. Verdict is this - if you use it mainly for productivity and power consumption/heat is on the agenda then this should do the job just as well as 3570k (even OC one). However if you are into games and other tasks you might find it somewhat slower than even the stock 3570k. The % of speed lost is not big but it is there and once you OC the 3570k the gap widens.
So all in all - gamers get 3570k. If you are sensible user and render/encode/excel/access a lot then this is my recommended CPU for you.

note: works with Z77 motherboards; might not be compatible with all though

Wow, I smiled when I saw this on my list of un-reviewed purchases. It was an impulse buy as i wanted build a new pc for myself and at the time it was around the same price as a Core i5-3570K (it still is). As it is more of an i7- class cpu I thought I'd get it instead. I glad I did as real-world tasks complete more quickly than a Core i5-3570K setup I built for a colleague. Thoroughly recommended.
