I have (or will have) a bunch of new CPUs to test over the next few weeks. I am expanding my old X3440 tests to include:
1. WEI (everyone wants to know)
2. TrueCrypt 1GB
3. 7-Zip 32MB Dict
4. Cinebench 11.5 (CPU)
5. Handbrake x264 HD (Blu-Ray quality to iPhone 4 preset)

Anyone else have thoughts on what might be interesting? I don't want to do game benchmarks because that is really not the site's focus. I think with the above one can get at least a decent idea of performance.

You're probably going to include them anyway, but idle/load power consumption numbers? :)

Hey nitro do you have 2U ones? I bought 4U HSF units.

BTW: The E3-1230 review/ benchmarks will be up Monday as it is written and scheduled. I am finishing up DP benchmarks on the Xeon E5606's right now. Is there any interest in me reviewing the rest of the E3-12xx line? Or maybe just the ones with no GPU?
