Running two of these, with 24 gig in a SuperMicro barebones servers. These things are beasts Excellent performance. Easily runs 8 lightly loaded Hyper-V virtual machines, never even breaks a sweat
COST Around 5k for the setup (bare bones server, 24 gig, two of these)
Took a few days to get here. Apparently didn't come directly from Newegg
Inside the Xeon box I got a Celeron
During RMA process the person on the phone didn't even know what a Celeron was
Newegg couldn't offer any quick turn around
