    from completed build Ivy Bridge in 2020

    At the price of free in 2020 it's hard to give anything but 5 stars. However, these processors can be found in workstations sold for cheap or just cheaper in general on Ebay. The issue will be finding a motherboard. Since it's not a K chip there is no worry about finding a Z board.
