  1. The Xeon's are NOT supported on the Rampage III Extreme. If you want the Xeon 55xx or 56xx then I would recommend either a SuperMicro or EVGA SR-2, the ASUS 'Workstation' MOBOs are okay.

    My question is what purpose or use do you want Xeon?

  2. dear,
    I asked my doubt based on this review. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/xeon-e5620-overcloking-westmere-ep,review-32027-3.html
    i like xeon bcz it have 12mb cache memory & xeon mostly using server purpose so i thing it should have a little bit power than i7.
  3. I have no problems with the Xeon CPUs and I understand their Pro & Costs, and they are used for both Servers and Workstations and work very efficiently and with ECC RAM for mission critical computations and or in a Professional environment.
