e31230v2 is 3.3GHz
3770 is 3.4GHz
3770k is 3.5GHz

aside from that they are identical processors the k will over clock well the others no so much.

I'd go for the 3770 or 3770k, specially if you don't need a dedicated videocard.

Yes but i dont think that this is the only criteria.From your post and benchmarks that i read 3820 outperforms 3770 for 40% and is only 3.6 and +2mb cache,thats why im curius maybe 1230v2 is better for daw workstasion than 3770.

these are all the same socket 1155 they have nothing to do with socket 2011 (3820)

as i said they are all the same processor ignore the word "xeon" there is no difference

Scott, at the risk of you calling me anal (again), don't you mean that, apart from having different specs, enabled features and intended applications, the respective processors are all built on the same identical die?

And I'd suggest (again) that a closer comparison would be between the 3770k and the E3-1275v2:

1270v2 performs better than 3770K and 1275v2 but is not dawbench :/

sigh:::: i listed the GHZ difference!
for the intent of this forum and audio potential my statement is 100% correct

Is there any reason to use a Xeon processor, other than if you want to use a dual CPU system?

They are mandatory for certain workstation/server class motherboards, even though it fades especially in the 1155 market. For home builds just stick with I7.

Ok, Scott, then let's just agree that you and I have rather different definitions of "identical processors", "same processor", "no difference" and "100% correct".

Xeon E3 is only for single cpu systems (uniprocessor servers and workstations), no dual processor capability.

Xeon E3 (and C2xx PCH) supports ECC memory and virtualiization features which i7 doesn't but which are really of no practical use anyway in a DAW, which is why i7 is the better choice than Xeon E3 for a DAW.

So, really no reason at all to use a Xeon E3 in a DAW, unless one absolutely wants the slightly higher stock and "turbo boost" performance available at much higher cost with E3-1280v2 and E3-1290v2 (at the loss of processor graphics):

For a DAW, makes much more sense to just o/c the i7-3770K.
