    Cheap (if you buy used) 8 core processor. What's not to love? For home servers, great buy.

    Finding the cpus took some time, I scoured eBay for months until I found a matching pair for $150 CAD. I have to say these CPUs are incredible, especially ripping my many DVD collections to move to a more digital library. In gaming, again these CPUs, even with a max clock of 2.6GHz rip through any game that I have in my Steam library with ease.

    For $150 for a pair it honestly can't be beat. The IPC is a little on the low end but any workflow that benefits from multithreading will get to stretch it's muscles here

    from completed build SSI EEB in NZXT H500i

    2x E5-2670 is a great deal and from the CPU Mark scores (Single: 1776, Multi: 19593) seems to perform around the level of a ThreadRipper 1920x. The Single Core score may be a bit low, but for under $85 each these are a steal!

    from completed build Dual Xeon Snow Build // R2

    Cheap, if bought used, and kicks *** at anything multi-core. Shockingly cool running, never exceeds 60c on air. NOT recommended for gaming or single-core work loads. Can, and does play video games, but not recommended.

    from completed build Blender Rendering Beast

    Terrific CPU, especially when you have two of them. Don't buy it unless you need multiple cores though. I'm a Blender artist, and these puppies render almost as fast as a 1070 :D
