Be careful Z10PE-D8 WS is a different 2011 socket then the Z9, it’s not compatible with xeon E5-2600 series v1& v2

Right yeah, it's the newer v3/v4 CPUs, which I've seen some engineering samples on Ebay for cheap as well, but I suppose not as cheap as the v2 ones.

Does the Z10 run V4 Xeons then???

I just spotted an ES 2670 V3 on ebay, lowered its price, around USD 200, check it out!

It is the same socket, so I assume so. Mind you, I don't know if it has the relevant BIOS update to support v4s. I saw a Xeon 2690 V4 ES for like 300 USD recently on Ebay, that woulda been a steal (14 cores, Turbo 3.1GHz).

I checked on ASUS website and now its updated with V4 compatibility, however it needs BIOS 3204, I guess some Z10s on the market have an older BIOS so one would need another V3 CPU to update BIOS first...

$300 for the 14 cores... niiice!

Those 2670 V3/4 chips all over Ebay at the moment are ES chips, stolen engineering samples owned by Intel. None of them are the proper clock speeds either at 2.2Mhz (they should be 2.3Mhz) and bound to have a number of other issues.

I'm not tempted by them at the moment, especially when You'll need the Z10 board which costs a lot more than the Z9

Hi guys,

I've got a Z9PE-D8 board on its way along with 2 E5-2670 chips and 64Gb of Samsung ECC 1600Mhz Registered ram. My graphics card is an XFX R290x Double Dissipation card with 4Gb memory.

I'm putting it into a black Phanteks Enthoo Luxe case.

Now onto cooling. I've never water cooled before but am keen to try it. I know that you can't overclock these processors much due to the locked multiplier so water cooling is pretty much overkill. HOWEVER I do wish to try it.

I was thinking of buying the EK-KIT X360 and buying another EK-Supremacy EVO water block for the second CPU. Will this work ok? https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-kit-x360

getimage.aspx?inventoryitemid=615581

I've seen some loops that have the cooling going from one CPU straight into the second CPU. Wouldn't that mean one CPU was getting all the heat from the other? Here is a link and pics to explain.

http://www.xs-pc.com/showcase/ scroll down to the TCM Mod section.

Does it matter that it is looped like this?

What would be the best air coolers to use in the Phanteks Entoo Luxe case? I know the Noctua coolers are very good (I have one in my current system, Q6600 lol) but I'm getting over the brown fan colour. It is starting to look pretty crap to me now and very dated.

I was thinking of getting a CoolerMaster Vanguard 1200W 80+ Platinum PSU in case I threw in another R290x for gaming. Will this be overkill? What would be an appropriate wattage PSU?

Cheers guys!

I'll just answer the temperature question for now: temp differences from loop order are negligible, the system is too small to allow the ambient to dissipate heat faster in one zone than another one. The temperatures will equalize in the whole loop.

The board itself doesn't cost that much more, IMO the real Price difference apart from the processors themselves -which are for non-ES A LOT more expensive-, are the DDR4 prices, you can buy DDR3 8GB dimms super cheap now...

Thanks for the answer on the loops. Basically it doesn't matter?
