Intel Xeon E3-1230

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, Intel users. I thought I might show you something a friend of mine uses and I wish I would have gotten instead of my current build. CPU uses less power and costs less than desktop SB. The build is stable so far, he hasn't tried overclocking yet cause were not sure if the mobo will let use plus he is waiting on a new cooler.

My buddies build-

Intel Xeon E3-1230 (Sandy Bridge "no" GPU) Less power required because it has no built in GPU which = less heat. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115083

I know I'm very happy with my X3440. Xeons don't disappoint.

but yeah, overclocking is an interesting question. I know that all of the i5/i7 Sandy Bridge processors have locked multipliers except for the "K" models, I wonder if the Sandy Bridge Xeons are locked or not.

If the built-in GPU is disabled, then it won't use any power or generate any heat anyway...
