E3 1230 V2 the Best Cpu for Lga 1155 Socket?


Is the e3 1230 v2 the best cpu i can get with my money. I know there are others like the 1230 v2 but they just hit the customs limit and don't really wanna deal with customs since i don't have the time and money to argue with the GPO. And how was your experience with aliexpress cpus, their delivery and what not if you have ever bought a used cpu from there.
Thanks as always

Nah, xeon cpus are rare in both techenclave and erodov, best bet is aliexpress and they seem to be a hit and miss depending on customs, tried to contact the seller but for the past 2 days he has only sent 1 msg saying he marks most of the packages below 2 usd. Asked him if indian customers ever complained about customs. Still awaiting answer

Hi Rezep,

I am posting it again because the last post I made never appeared so here it goes anyway.


If you are looking for a better single core performance then I would suggest you E3-1270v2 for about 70USD. Regarding the customs its always a hit and miss affair. I purchased a E5-2690 for 105USD about a year and half and it came through without customs charges but then another product with less than 30USD in value got customs tax. So its completely a dice roll there.


I usually purchase most of my server hardware from another forum and I am not sure if posting links to another forum is acceptable here. So if you are interested please let me know, I will send you the like. Purchases are done on one to one basis and it is generally sent as a gift item with no value so it completely bypasses customs.



Hope this is of help to you(hope this one gets posted)


Regards

In my experience if the package stays with the customs clearance for more than a few hours, then it is been slapped with tax. Hope my previous experience is wrong this time.

Well the detail "held by customs" did not last long, however the bangalore gpo just takes time since the backlog and items they have to check is mental. A person got his mi band (reddit) in around a month more or less

Here you go man, bought a case from a person and waiting for it to get shipped, haven't got the chance to test it yet. Any suggestions for thermal paste?

you can go to any shop and get a local paste for 100 bucks AFAIK. it should work. I have been thinking for a while now. H67 series motherboard is too old for a upgrade!

When you have a budget of 30k, including monitor, options are limited using my old asrock h61m plus mobo which is still working fine, has an i3 3220 which i'm either gonna sell or use as backup incase the xeon fails. Bought a thermaltake v100 from a guy in the second hand components fb group but he dropped the case and, returned the money back to me , anyways not looking to go cheap on the thermal paste due to the fact i'm not gonnna change it in a year(or two). Cooler master gel for 500 worth it?

Hi Rezep,
Glad to hear that you received yours and thanks for the update regarding the Customs charge.



Regarding the thermal paste, I think anything other than toothpaste will work great
