HP Z400s use those in single processor configurations, and Z600 and
Z800 machines use them in dual proc configurations.

Recently they can be super cheap, like about $100-120 for minimal
configurations. I think the heatsinks are proprietary though, so it
can be better to order a machine with terrible CPUs than one without

Currently, I don't see such great deals, so I don't know if they have
moved on of if this is just a bad week.

I really like my Z400 upgraded with W3670 CPU though (as well as maxed
RAM and a modern Geforce card).

Next I'd probably set my sights on a Z620 personally.
