Xeon E3-1235

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Does anyone use xeon e3 1235 instead of 2500K or 2600K? In my home area, some people use this CPU because it is much cheaper than 2500 or 2600K but having good performance and low power ability. Any idea?

Most people in here don't use it because it can't overclock. If that's not a problem with you by all means get it. It is cheaper than 2500 or 2600 counterpart.

It's not multiplier unlocked so it's cheaper.

With similar price as i5 2500K, E3-1235 has 4 cores 8 threads while i5 2500K only has 4 cores 4 threads, if really for server kind or design work kind of purpose or somehow need to always turn on the computer, it is really reasonable to buy E3-1235 instead of i5.

The only thing different about Xeon vs Core series are that Xeon support ECC RAM. ECC RAM is important if you want to run server 24/7.

For regular use, Xeon is no different than Core series. So if overclock is not a concern, get it because it is cheaper.

ECC RAM is for auto correction so more stable in long term 24/7?

ECC can detect and correct some memory errors (not all). Regular consumer will not run into these error that often (in fact close to 0). Servers are different since they are 24/7/365 on, therefore ECC is important to them.

If a computer runs into a memory error it is simply BSOD, which backs to normal once you reboot. ECC does slightly slow gaming and computation down.

With Xeon, just pop it into your motherboard and use regular RAM. ECC RAM are expensive by the way.

You are missing the big difference though... K series have an unlocked multiplier allowing for 4.5GHz+ operation.

If you don't plan to overclock, then a E3-1235 is fine.

That blanket statement is not quite correct in all cases. There are other differences as well such as higher operating temperatures, unlocked QPI lanes for multisocket configurations, and other features. There some Xeon models not avaliable in Core versions like the deca-core Westmere-EX. In this case, the E3-1235 has P3000 IGP instead of the 3000 IGP. It uses different drivers for professional support.

It depends on the series.

Also note that Xeons do not always work in every consumer motherboard. They should with a BIOS update but it depends on the mobo.
Once again...

Having more cores instead of overclock unlocked multipliers, sound like a better deal than FX.
