post #1431 of 2457
I would have risked ES chips (it's only a few mhz? have to look up...agree 12 cores drool! - haven't seen any es 12-core tho')...after all hmmm what can you buy for 3200 euro`? Say 4x titan, or the new titan z, or a a complete xeon rendering-node if that's what you use it for, or a 4k cinema camera, or at least three vacations somewhere in europe, or a holiday to australia......

Much monies, so possibilities! thumb.gif

Iff it's for work though, and you can get a tax write-off...well the retail (should!) be more stable....iff your cash-flow can afford it...dunno iff it makes a difference with this temperamental board all things considered...

Science...

Check these out (only 2.1 ghz, but they are 12-core)....http://www.ebay.com/itm/intel-E5-12cores-2-1Ghz-Xeon-E5-2695-v2-2687W-2667-V2-ES-engineering-sample-/261333817274?pt=US_Server_CPUs_Processors&hash=item3cd8b597ba

848 usd for genuine 12-cores......gives you an extra 4 cores over the 10-cores.....note they are an earlier B1 stepping which could be problematic with bios....man if I had the dough.....they get 13.5 on cinebench each whereas BOTH my e5-2665's get 17.8.....tongue.gif

QF6T should get over the 14 per chip tongue.gif

Nothing wrong with B1 Ivy chips, but 2.1GHz is crippled pretty much. Retail 2695v2 would do over 16 points each. SR1BA are E5-2695V2 ES chips you'd want (2.3-2.4GHz) and do 15.5 points each biggrin.gif

Guru! Crippled and crippled (3200 euro a pair cheaper crippled!)....

Question...running prime 95 and checking hwinfo64, with my piece of s...t corsair link running all maxed...cpu temps are very nice, around 44C at maximum (bit loud tho!), but further down, under sensors, the memory ambient shows 50c, which is fine, but the memory channels show 80c! That has me wondering whether I should stick in a spot fan (one of those bendy things). But does that relate to the memory cards themselves, or the heatsinks above the memory? Have 4 temp sensors plugged into the corsairlink pos mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif, but usually only one or two work iff at all. Or maybe I should invest in some heatsinks for the memory (the cheapest corsair 1600 I could find) and somehow plop a fan in there (would need to be 2 on either side....http://www.amazon.com/Antec-Spot-Cool-SpotCool-System/dp/B000I5KSNQ

CPU power package (THAT may be the two silver heatsinks up the top) are reading 72 as well......

Don't need the h80i's of course but one nice thing is that they allow for this kind of thing as opposed to some giant noctuas blocking all airflows.

Addendum...quite a few peps have mentioned it might be an idea to reverse the rear fan (to stop dust accumulation and improve positive pressure), wondering whether it is worth it? Have at the moment going in, 3x120's that came with my 900d, 1x140 noctua on the bottom pulling air, and then of course the rear corsair 120 exhausting, the push/pull of the 4x120's from the h80i's exhausting out the top + one extra noctua 140 exhausting out the top. Gotta say, after 6 months looking pretty dusy in there. Too bad Corsair didn't provide dust filters at the back and on the bottom.

As usual, great forum and especially great thread! All hail the masters of the pc universe!!rolleyes.gif (well that is us obviously, with the sickest possible builds!)....

Edit: with prime95 running, my B0 e5-2665's run at around 2400....but for me threads is more important than MHZ....wow still would love 2x12's!!!! May have to upgrade in the fall when I go back to school doing 3d animation...8 more threads...drool....1700 bucks for them ES version...(what to do with the old ones?)...

Not really an expert on airflow (been a long time since I built an air cooled build tongue.gif)

RAM shouldn't matter though. CPUs are unreasonably high though. They should run really cool, but 72*C is not a problem.

CPUs are running cool....43C max, but the MEMORY CHANNEL is running at 80c, which I assume is the memory dimms. Or the two silver heatsinks above the cpu....(assuming they are cooling the qpi links from the memory to the cpu's)...

BTW my Bios 3506 is a .cap bios, but don't think earlier versions helped with the pci-e slots....nobody has got earlier s-b b0/b1 etc to work with later versions? Not sure iff v.2 to v.3 of pci-e makes such a huge difference....
post #1437 of 2457
You mean these as far as e5-2695? http://www.ebay.com/itm/INTEL-XEON-12-CORE-PROCESSOR-E5-2695V2-2-40GHZ-30MB-CACHE-8-GT-S-QPI-115W-SR1BA-/310909647378?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4863a8ba12

USD 2290 vs 890....!!!redface.gif for 3ghz I can go make an extra cup of coffee....

or at 2k usd same 2.4ghz version...http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-2695-v2-30M-Cache-2-40-GHz-/131051577634?pt=CPUs&hash=item1e83486122

still pricey....why not get 4! of the 'crippled' e5-2695's at 2.1 ghz and build a node with change left over? I.e. 48 cores 96 threads at 2.1 ghz vs 24 cores/48 threads at 2.4 ghz....(ok have ...to...keep...visa...in...wallet....thumb.gif)..

I mean this one.

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=38115995082

And no, PCI-E 2.0/3.0 doesn't matter on .cap since they all kind of fail to post at times. .rom doesn't work with 3.0 cards so that's why you can reliably use 2.0 cards (if you use .rom bioses).

You should really only use B0 chips on .rom BIOSes.

Well reverting means ordering new bios chips, and it seems to be working....

Regarding temps, will try and upload some here...but seem to recall hwinfo gave out some rubbish numbers where there weren't sensors or something....prbly when I first started build....


Mind you, running prime95 for 30 mins....at least the cpu's stay nice and frosty! Had this issue with sisoft sandra. May still wack in some spot fans and extra noctuas on the bottom for intake.....for when I'm rendering 24/7 or out of town and leaving it on for teamviewer...don't really want it burning down the flat....
