Amazing multithreading deals

Just snagged an E5-2697 v3 QS for $180 on eBay. This is will make a nice upgrade to my E5-1650 v3 and should allow for much greater virtualisation expansion. What a bargain!




Not bad for 3.6GHz dual-core and 3.1GHz all-core. This should satiate me until Skylake-W or Threadripper Colfax come down in price. There are good deals to be had with the Skylake-W Apple QS chips on eBay but unfortunately the cost of entry into Basin Falls C422 is still too high at the moment.


What are some good deals you have found?

Your friendly neighbourhood Xeon-sexual. Ask me any questions you have about HEDT/workstations. Love tinkering with 'older' stuff like X58, X79, and X99.
