Server chips with low power consumption are in style an the Xeon E3-1230Lv3 certainly qualifies at a tiny 25W TDP. It is a Haswell chip running at a peak speed of 1.8GHz which would be great for a small business or for a home server. eTeknix compared the performance of this chip to the i7-4770K with a TDP more than three times that of the Xeon which is perhaps a little unfair to the E3 but is a familiar chip to most enthusiasts. That said the Xeon doesn't fall too far behind in many tests and at $250 it is less expensive to slap into a Z87 motherboard and it will reduce your power bill somewhat.
"Intel’s Xeon E3-1230Lv3 CPU has been a hotly anticipated processor for a wide variety of target audiences – home users, office users, small business users and enterprise users. Today we’ve got an opportunity to put Intel’s enterprise Xeon E3-1230Lv3 CPU to the test in a professional home user or “prosumer” type of environment, by pairing it up with SuperMicro’s server-grade C7Z87-OCE motherboard. The Intel Xeon E3-1230Lv3 is an important CPU because it offers four cores, eight threads, a 1.8GHz base frequency, a 2.8GHz Turbo frequency and 8MB of cache all for a tiny TDP of just 25W."

eTeknix review, full specs
eTeknix review, full specs not listed, limited benchmarks, and just all around sloppy eTeknix review! Pcper could mention the SKU and link to the data sheet, without linking to the sub par eTeknix review.
What benchmarks would you
What benchmarks would you have liked to seen on this type of review? Constructive feedback is greatly appreciated.
On a related note we have a pair of Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 processors to test and are looking for feedback on what benchmarks to run(I’m new to the whole enterprise CPU stuff..)
back in the day (pre LGA
back in the day (pre LGA 1155) this CPU would be great fun for OC, thanks Intel for killing regular OC.
but yes, that’s not a very good review anyway…
you know when you start
you know when you start something because it seems interesting and half way through you realize that it was nowhere near as good as you thought … but are kinda stuck moving forward anyways? So ya, here you go http://ark.intel.com/products/75053/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E3-1230L-v3-8M-Cache-1_80-GHz
Thank you, and now where are
Thank you, and now where are the motherboards that will take 2 or more of these, and how much do they cost, and of course the Benchmarks! It should not be to hard for some grad student, HPC cluster competition style, re-porting/repurposing of Nvidia’s HPC drivers to work with gaming GPUs and a small boutique gaming cluster OEM/enthusiast’s market is born, to service the gaming enthusiasts with money to burn! I can not wait to see what, also, the ARM based gaming cluster market holds for the future of HPCG (High Performence Cluster Gaming), it is going to be FUN, FUN, FUN.
College High Performence Cluster Gaming competition NOW!
