    Really good speed for the money. Cheaper than E5's, but it still screams. We have about 20 of these in servers and keep buying more...

    3 out of 5 eggs processor without a home

    Pros: It looks great in the box. It took me 4 months to get the money to buy it.

    Cons: Too bad I didn't inspect the motherboard when I bought it in November. When I opened the motherboard last night to assemble my new system, what a surprise I got when I noticed some of the pins were bent needless to say my Intel Xeon E3-1240 processor didn't work with a damaged motherboard and it was over 30 days so newegg couldn't do anything for me. I wish I could tell you the processor was awesome but it will probably take me another 3 months to buy another one to try and assemble my system again. Maybe you computer geeks can help me and tell me how it would have worked . I have a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H housing a Intel Xeon E3-1240 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3 GHz processor with 32 gb of Gskill F3-12800CL10D. The power supply is Raidmax RX-730SS and I am using a Kingston Hyper X 120 GB SSD for the brains of the operation. Is anything better than the Kingston Hyper X? I'm using a Seagate 2.5 " 1000 GB SSHD for storage. It will probably be set up with the windows 8.1 platform . I'm sure this is negative feedback though ,so it probably won't be shown but basicly just wanted to inform everybody to inspect their products when you get them and not wait till you install them so you don't get bit in the rear like I did . Guess I can use it for a $1000 paperweight.

    5 out of 5 eggs 8 threaded Heaven!

    Pros: 4 core, 8 threads, low power, works on Z77 with no issues. Gaming is excellent, powerful replacement for my 3570K. Lower power use (not that I care).

    Cons: No Over Clocking...not my intention anyway.

    Bottom Line: I bought this to be part of my main rig. Asus Sabertooth Z77, 32G ram, NVidia GTX 760. It was cheaper than the 3770(K) and I wasn't looking to OC, just wanted dependable 24/7 operation and hyper-threading. I got what I wanted and I am very satisfied with the performance for the price. When not in use, it is folding at 20-50% more PPD than my 3570K was on the same hardware.

    5 out of 5 eggs Powerful CPU

    Pros: yep the 1240v2 packs some serious power for example playing a BD movie cpu utilization jumps between 1-2% only>the cpu I had before the i5 3570k playing the same movie was between 8-and 10% "hyper threading" the way to go for encoding!

    Cons: N/A

    Bottom Line: and yes it works with regular desktop memory

    4 out of 5 eggs Update from Last Review

    Pros: Runs cool and can overclock with the right motherboard to 3.6GHz and 3.7GHz with Turbo Mode enabled. Uses very little power.

    Cons: n/a

    Bottom Line: I purchased this CPU for gaming. When paired with a high-end graphics card this CPU becomes a pretty big bottleneck to the system. I am unable to reach maximum FPS due to the CPU on games that are heavily based on the CPU. All other games run great other than CPU based games. Great processor, not for some games.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great Chip

    Pros: Under some of the harshest tests I could throw at it, it never broke 32C. This chip is fast, and one of real benefits for me is that it only has 4 cores. For running a few single-threaded apps, it speeds things up a lot. I've got another processor with 6 cores and 4 of them are idle most of the time. Comes with a stock heatsink which I should mention I've never used, I created a custom solution which is half of how it stays so cool.

    Cons: Can only be used in Single-CPU configurations. I'd love to have a dual or quad system based on these, but intel wants to charge a lot more for chips that can do that.

    Bottom Line: Strongly considering buying more of these just for odd jobs.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great 4 Gaming

    Pros: I purchased this CPU to avoid the internal GPU found on the desktop series. I originally had no intention of overclocking this CPU but was surprised to see that I was able to push it to 3.6GHz with 16GB 1600MHz RAM on the Asrock H77M motherboard.

    Great price
    Great performance
    Great load temperatures (60 max with overclock)

    Cons: Higher idle temperatures than desktop line (40)

    Bottom Line: Paired with a 7850 GPU get amazing frames per second, I know this is not helpful.. But! I get an average if 350FPS on League if Legends. I will never go back to AMD for a performance system again.

    I hate you Intel.

    5 out of 5 eggs STABLE & S FAST & COOL

    Pros: works cool with z77 chipsets (even support for is not listed) z77a-GD55 (MSI) and I also tried with p8 z77-m (Asus). Base clock can be raised to 8.6 & and multiplier set to 36 and there is boost. E3-1230v2 can be set to multiplier 35 (with Z77). So is it worth 30$ more?
    With JUST ONE VOLT jumps between 3.9 and 4.0Ghz It's lower temperature at IDLE than i5 3550.
    I7 overclocks better memory than i5. I have some "old" wintec 1333 wich runs ABOVE 2000 and stay cool.

    Cons: At this time Newegg price is much higher than 250$ manufacter suggested and I wouldn't have paid more than that.

    Can't see memory in CPUZ (probably has something to do with not official support in these mobos)

    Bottom Line: I'm finally coupling it with a Supermicro board X9SCM-F-O . Being cool and having a high thermal rezistance can stay in a 1U server.
    Two pcie x8 gen3 and one x4 gen2.

    5 out of 5 eggs better then a I7

    Pros: this CPU screams , I paired it with a Asus Z77 sabertooth and it runs it just fine . Sees it for what it is . It has a lower thermal rating , and NO intergrated graphics . It is also cheeper then a Ivy 3770 , supports hyperthreading , and gets the same WEI score as a 3770. and in some benchmarks beats a I7 3770 at stock settings

    Cons: still kinda pricy , not unlocked but I knew that going in but I see no need to overclock , this thing is a beast

    Bottom Line: save some cash if you dont want to overclock, have no need for a intergrated graphics and like lower power consumption . then get this . Honestly I fail to see why someone would spent bg money on a fast CPU and would buy a deciated graphics card Intel GPUs still get their arces kicked by nvidia and amd GPUs and Lucid is a joke , buggy at best
