    Genuine Intel Xeon E5-2695v2 SR1BA 12-Core 2.40GHz 30MB LGA-2011 | eBay

    It's kind of a middle of the road cpu in term of single core and multicore performance... but i think compared to 2690 v2 and 2696/7 v2, it's a better price right now.... It's probably not the most popular v2 cpu, less demand, lower price....

    also cool to see the large number of cores..:)

    Edit: new link here for even lower prices:

    Nice find! This looks like the best v2 cpu deal right now at the moment.....you know it's a good deal when 49 are sold in 24 hrs....lol..

    I just never get bored looking at all 24 cores and 48 threads on my 2696 v2 setup.....The multicore speed of the 2695 v2 is not that far away from 2696 v2 at all.... and this is much cheaper price

    Seriously, after I got the dual 2696v2 cpus, I have one single machine that rules them all. It replaced 5 servers.

    The problem I've got with these is that while they're pretty cheap for what they are, I don't have much use for single server setups these days. Most of the cool tech like VSAN, HA/FT etc is only available when you've got multiple servers. So whenever I think of building something, it's usually at least a 3 node cluster. Which means that even at $150 a piece, I'm still spending at least $900 just on CPUs. And after adding the cost of all the other parts to those $900 - that's when I start thinking long and hard about possible ways to shave that total cost down.

    Funnily enough, number 1 component to save money on for a multi-node cluster is usually the CPU. :) Maybe I'm doing it wrong (not an IT pro, it's just a hobby for me), but whenever I try to calculate the total cost of a 3-node cluster with 12-core Ivy chips vs a 4-node cluster with cheap 8-core Sandy chips - they're almost the same. The total number of cores is pretty close ((12+12)*3 = 72 cores vs (8+8)*4 = 64 cores), but the savings from the CPU downgrade almost buy the whole extra node with the motherboard, 128gb ram and 2-3 enterprise SSDs. I'm still very confused with this and trying to figure it out for my builds. :confused:

    That listing from my post above is down to $120 now! That is a good price indeed. :D Bought 4 more. At this price they actually make sense to me.

    Hmm. I wonder whether it was a technical mistake on their (or ebay's) part. :confused: A fire-sale on a single item might be intentional, but doing it for everything, all those hundreds of items they've got.. I don't know, now it starts to feel a little bit fishy. I did order 6 of those in total, let's see whether they ship.

    hmm, it does sound suspicious now.... i mean this was selling like hot cake at $150 anyway, wondering why he is reducing the price even more? I am a little concerned now if this is a hacked account or fraud....
