New Build Ideas

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i was just gifted an Intel Xeon W5580. Had a buddy whose board went bad on him, he was running dual 5580's. he ended up getting a regular board that only used 1 cpu. so yay for me i got the other 1.

I have been reading alittle about the processor, and i am excited to put it to work. I currently threw it in my HP Z400, which normally ran a w3520 and it runs awesome, but i wanna hit the 4GHz mark.

and am lookin to build a new box to run this 5580, but i am gettin mixed results on looking for a good board, lookin for some input.

Anyone out there running a 5580 know of a good board capable of being overclocked?


thanks in advance.

First off...Welcome to OCN...I see this is your first post...With it being a Xeon CPU, what are your intentions with the CPU?
