Advanced and very fast CPU
Building a new file server coming from a consumer i5-9600K this is unbelievably fast. TrueNas does a good job utilizing all threads and it is really hard to load this CPU past 80%, if you load it down it just finishes the task. On paper it should be 5 times faster than my old cpu, I did pair it with 8 sticks of 16GB DDR4-3200 and it finishes work loads in a half hour that took the other "server" multi days to complete. The first render i gave it I thought it crashed because it finished it so quickly. Runs cool.
- Based on many negative forum post with most having no experience with the processor I was apprehensive. However, based on the Intel ark information and my server requirements it fit my needs so I purchased discounting the naysayers. - I'm glad I did as this CPU has been rock solid under an initial test setup and now a full production state VMware ESXi setup. - I paired this with an X11SPM-TPF and they have been a happy marriage - With CPU, MB, x8 WD Red Pro drives, x1 WD Purple, Samsung Pro M.2, x2 SATADom's, x7 fans (Noctua 3,000rpm units). With all of this at very low use it is pulling about 100 watts, in medium about 150 watts. - The CPU stays very cool even under a full load stress test. Note: I'm using a Node 804 case not a server rack so temps will naturally be lower in a larger case. - New socket & heat-sink compo is very sturdy and secure once installed; there's no question if it is seated & secured once installed.
Runs my small business server domain controller and file management systems seamlessly. Handles thread requests perfectly, and never shows signs of slowing down. I am buy 2 more of these to install in my new backup server that I am building.
cheapest Haswell with HT and the 4600. It is a 4770 with ECC and less of a chance to have defects. It will hold me over for broadwell-E fine.
