    It's fast and comparatively cheap. Runs cool under a good cooler.

    Abslolutely awesome CPU. I had a really hard time choosing between a locked I7 with hyperthreading and a unlocked I5 without hyperthreading. Also, I was on a pretty tight budget. This was the perfect solution: it has hyperthreading and boosts up to 3,9 Ghz. IMO it's just an I7 without the integrated graphics. If you don't need the extra GHz's and you're planning on buying a GPU, this is the one I'd recommend.

    Better than a i5 if you don't plan on overclocking for the same cost! whats not to like?

    Perfect for those people who don't need to overclock and don't want to spend as much money for similar performance. Great CPU deserves every star.

    An I-7 for $100 less, and it has ECC support. Great CPU if you don't want integrated graphics.

    Best value 4C/8T chip hands down and will give overclocked i5 and i7's a run for their money.

    from completed build Relatively Mean Xeon Machine

    CPU: Incredible if you don't intend to overclock like me. For right now I'm just focusing on keeping everything frosty cool (hence Kraken X61). When deciding between this and an unlocked i5 it is really the tradeoff of overclocking vs hyperthreading. I went with hyperthreading and don't regret it for a second, I love my Xeon. Plus there's the added hype/originality/awesomeness factor that naturally comes with a Xeon.

    i7 4770 without the iGPU. Lower TDP, lower cost, no loss for anyone using a dedicated GPU. One of the best value CPUs on the market.

    That Intel Xeon E3-1231 V3 processor is furiously fast!!! (But, what would we expect from a Xeon E3?)

    EXCELLENT processor, especially around the $200 price mark.
