I chose to build this server with an Intel Core iK. In fact, many of our so-called experts were even wrong on what constitutes a server in the first place. Which is better?
XEON vs Core i7: The Core i7 Pros
Make informed decisions with expert advice. Learn More. Pros: Speed binned IK. With these results I thought to replace the stock thermal and call it a day, but I'll likely delid the CPU, just to get a couple more years out of it. Loving my results with this chip so far. Essentially, this chip will run a more stable OC than most IK. That said, there are plenty of reviews online that suggest that there were many non-speed binned IK's capable of the same thing. Only one core ships with boosted clocks and those clocks are minimal increases. Overall Review: It's nice knowing you will get one of the better chips in the batch. I like the idea of having the option to pay a little more for a better binned part, and it would be interesting to see this trend become mainstream with the obnoxious rebranding.
