Around 3 years ago i setup an alert on ebay for Xeon E3-1290 V2

they come up every few months for around £200

 

I want one but not that much being that i already Have

a few 1155 cpu's already

Xeon E3-1265L v2

Xeon E3-1240 v2

Core i7 3770

Xeon E3-1220 v2

 

one came up a week ago for £100 put in an offer of £80 and got it

 

considering they are super rare i think it was a good price

 

if anyone has a 65w cooler for the gen8 going in the uk for the right price hit me up..

as this thing pulls 68w on a prime 95 large fft load with avx @ 3.8ghz

which is a fair jump from the other cpu's

Its in a desktop atm for testing its a fair jump from around 54w that an Xeon E3 1240 v2 uses

 

I still think the Xeon E3 1230 v2 is the sweet spot for performance and heat

but couldnt help myself picking up the fastest 1155 cpu

Impressive, although I'm very happy with my E3-1265l v2, not the most powerful, but can run with the standard heat sink without any issues.

I just ordered a E3-1264L v2 so as to be able to plex better. as the stock celeron is not that great.

Where did you order from? I'm tempted, but being a bit tight!
