Nope, read a review of It already, I have a P55 system and another under construction, It's a glorified server cpu.

The extreme edition chips are generally just low end server chips marketed to a different segment for those willing to pay for it. Honestly I would rather just buy the Xeon version. Same money and you get a few nicer features.

Yeah that's the impression I got too, Me I'm looking at getting a Xeon x3430-x3450 cpu for My EVGA P55 classified 200 motherboard, the Xeons are supported in the Bios I was told, I've also been told that 8GB reg/ecc dimms have not been tested on the motherboard, but that they should work since the controller on the cpu supports reg/ecc ram up to 32GB...

The benchmark numbers make my P4 look like an abacus.

Now I'm sad.

Then compare your P4 to a real abacus - maybe that makes you feel better ;-)

That might make an abacus feel bad. :/
