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

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

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.

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

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!
