What? Facts? I'm hitting 5GHz at 1.416v. That's pretty low, IMO. I was able to boot at 5.2GHz but haven't gone for stability. I'd need to upgrade my cooler or wait till Winter rolls around.

If you want performance for your money, an i5 2500k is a GREAT investment. If you get anything else, you'll just be disappointed.

Don't take this the wrong way, but there's a difference in being different and a difference in being stupid.
No, what's stupid is people thinking they need the best of the best when all their screen can render is 60FPS. Or thinking that someone who runs a stock CPU is stupid... People do that every day, and are perfectly happy.

And I seriously think even if I got a golden 8150, it would still be slower than a E3 1240.

Also all the benchmarks I've been able to run on my 1055T has been faster than bulldozer clock for clock.

You'd be making a mistake by buying anything but a 2500k or 2600k. Then again, it's your money so go ahead and spend it however you like. I don't even know why you made this thread.

Yeah, it seems pointless as he seems to had already made his mind up before even posting. He really doesn't have many choices if he wants to be different. Either go with the Xeon and be different, whatever that means, or get the 25/2600K and be done with it. Not much more we can offer in advice.

Me? I'd get the higher end SB's, OC and enjoy. Put the Xeon or some random oddball CPU in your sig so everyone will just think you are different. No one would have to know

Buying things because you want to be different or hipster isn't really going to help you much in life.

Buying things based on what such a product can provide you with would get you alot further.

I'd say you're buying these things for all the wrong reasons - who buys hardware like as if it's a fashion statement? (Maybe an Apple product would suit you )

Your money, though. Personally i'd buy whatever the best bang for buck was at the time. The 2600k/2500 is that.

For someone with a Oscar Wilde quote, your taking his wanting to be different seriously. And buying computer parts that are different from the norm will surely effect you in life....lol.
post #27 of 33
Has to be said...... HIPSTER

lol anyway get the i5 or i7 and you will be happy.

This is why I don't ask anyone on this forum about much of anything.

You asked if anyone knew if a Xeon CPU would bottleneck your 560 Ti SLI configuration. All you got was people calling you names ('Hipster' and the like) and telling you you are wasting your money, just buy a i5 2500K.

O M G! Someone wants to try something different! How could they?!?!? Just buy everything we buy because we have the best stuff there is and all your junk is crap.

Welcome to OCN, the new version.

Here's a run of some benchmarks where the Xeon E3 1230 outperforms the i5 2500K in most applications they test and has a lower power consumption. Obviously all at stock settings.

In a quick search I can't find any benchmarks for gaming with a similar Xeon to the one you mentioned.

I'd go for the E3-1245 or something higher if possible (you'll want the ones that end in 5). Not sure what the max multi is on those for turbo with all cores honestly. But assuming its 34x for a 3.3GHz chip (like the 2500k), you could get approximately 3.6GHz out of it. If the multi goes higher, obviously you can go higher.

You should be able to reach around 105MHz BCLK on a good board easily enough. Anything higher will be hit or miss.

Supposedly the 2500 (non K) has a maximum turbo multiplier of 40x for all cores. So if that's true, then you MIGHT be lucky and get a 40x out of the Xeon too. But don't hold me to that, that's just what I've heard a while back.
