Whooooo, just bought a Asus P9Ph-D16 for $200 shipped.

It looks like I'm gonna be the owner of a 2p xeon for just $400 biggrin.gif

Can you overclock on those server cpus? Are they any good to have as a desktop alternative for gaming rig?

Retail Xeons from Sandy onwards no OC. Although I'm getting ES chips, so there's a slight chance I can OC it.

My chips are gonna run at 2Ghz so no gaming frown.gif

There are faster chips but that will cost much more.

The chips you got are a better deal than mine. I got mine off ebay for a little over 300 a piece. On an 8103 I am at around 287k ppd. I just picked up and 8104 so I will see what kind of ppd it brings. Congrats on the new 2p! smile.gif

With 2650's and a turbo speed of 2.3GHz, I'd say they wouldn't be very desirable as a gaming rig. It would of course work, but as games rarely use more than a 2-4 threads CPU speed would likely become a bottleneck.

No OC more than the possibility of upping BCLK 4 MHz. Idk if that board can adjust BCLK, but if it can, 104MHz (100MHz stock) is what you can expect to run. If all-core turbo is 23x multi, it would mean 2394MHz.
ES in Intels case doesn't mean unlocked anything really. AMD's Opteron ES's (at least for G34 socket) means an unlocked multi and voltage control.

400USD for mobo+CPU's is a very nice price, even the worst bigadv could give you 170k+ PPD. And 2650's doesn't draw much power.

I doubt the motherboard you bought will allow overclocking since it's a server board. Asus's Z9PE-D8 WS allows you to overclock since they categorized it as a workstation board.
I'm more concerned with the board you bought... It seems to be a proprietary design. I don't see any normal atx power or 8-pin EPS plugs, just some weird 20-pin proprietary ones...

Chapter 2: Hardware information
11. Proprietary power connectors
(20-pin PWR1, 20-pin PWR2,4-pin PWR3)

These connectors are for Proprietary power supply plugs. The power supply plugs are designed to fit these connectors in only one orientation. Orient the connectors and push down firmly until they completely fit.

USE THE PROPRIETARY POWER SUPPLY ONLY and ensure that your
PSU can provide at least the minimum power required by your system.




Edit:
It looks like this is the board they use in their high density servers. It's supposed to be a part of a 2U 4 node setup. http://www.asus.com/Commercial_Servers_Workstations/RS720QE7RS12/

I really hope you can figure out how to power it. It would be a neat little setup if you can.

Veey nice find bud, cant believe I missed That.

However, i dont think The power plugs are propertory. They only said its a special form factor.

Im just Gonna pray that they use 2 20 pin atx mobo plugs.

Their manual says to use the proprietary power supply only.
I hope you're right. If their pinout is correct, it's quite different from a standard atx plug.

Well, do you think I can mod a regular power supply to make That Connector?
Have you guys even seen people selling Those special 20 pin PSUs?
