No cooler includedDemanding tasks require powerful hardware. But has long been the Xeon series, which includes CPUs for the professional sector. So comes the used Xeon E5420 processor with an extensive feature set to you, in addition been a major overhaul by was made. Technically you must therefore fear no restrictions.
The quad-core processor Xeon E5420 operates its cores at 2.5 GHz and consumes a maximum of 80 watts (TDP). But the Demand-based switching technology makes always sure that the CPU only uses as much energy as necessary. Only when the computing power is really required, a corresponding adjustment of supply to prov maximum performance.
Due to the 64-bit instruction set, you can Xeon E5420 use also under modern operating systems. In addition, can use the VT-x technology to achieve the best results in the virtual environment. The security has but by no means negligible, so the technology has been implemented.
Plan the use of the Xeon E5420 processor in your computer system. If you first check the manual for your server or workstation. Often there the supported CPUs are specified, the motherboard necessarily an LGA 771 socket must supply, in which the CPU is placed and secured.
