[MOD] LGA775 Support For LGA771 Xeon CPUs - Page 1036

post #10351 of 12470
Going to go pick up an XFX 780I board at 4:30 ($40 Canadian), got a left over E5430 to go with it...just waiting to hear back on a $20 Antec P182 (mirror finish one), and $10 2x1GB Mushkin DDR2. Oh, and picking up an Arctic Cooling something rather cooler for $10 tomorrow. Hope to at least get 3.8GHz...have to order (and wait for) another sticker though.

I was telling one of my friends about how I breathed life into my old PC with a cheap mod and Xeon chip, and he asked if I could put him together a PC super cheap, as he's without a private computer at mo, just his work ones. I said I have a bunch of bits he's welcome to, PSU and graphics card, cooler, case. He just wants this for private email and MS office, his iPad will suffice for browsing.

Anyway, non strenuous stuff. All we needed to buy was a new MB and some ram... He wants to crack on with some non work work so wants it soon, so we spent £25 on 'buy it now' on eBay and now have an Asus Striker Formula II and 4 gig of overclockable ram. This board reviewed ok, but seems to have problems with temperatures and with quad cores from what I've read, eg on verge of melting with a 400fsb.

Should we even bother getting a Xeon for it or just slap in a dual core I already have laying about? I could test the E5450 but it'd mean dismantling mine. I was all looking forward to playing overclocker with a new board and new chip, so bummed to see this board which is two years newer than my P5B deluxe overclocks worse! At least it only cost peanuts, nice boards on buy it now were 3x as much (as we discussed before here!)

I would say go for the quad still...just get a low power E series with a high multi...the E5450 I am sure would be OK and better than a dual core. I wouldn't bother with a dual core these days for anything. Not with the price of the quads. I am sure there are instances where a higher clocked dual core may still be better, but I would guess that would be pretty rare these days.

So the next thought is do I buy an X5470 and give my mate the E5450 I already have 😄

And yeah, the E5450 (or X5450) run fine at stock on that Striker board (according to other forums), it just seems galling to think that to make them run at 3.6ghz/400fsb you potentially have to tolerate 70 degrees idle on NB and SB and a spectacular 90 under load. What a cruddy chipset NVidia churned out!! I hope those figures are just unlucky people rather than standard temps...

My old Asus 780i board ran pretty warm...it's still running to this day though, I just don't have it anymore. I did repaste it about a year or two ago though. And it always was a bit finicky from the get go. I am hoping this XFX board I am getting will be OK...I've seen a few people getting 500 FSB, but usually with dual cores.

The 780i sounds like a weird one... Some magazines that reviewed it had great success with overclocking, 481FSB as one example with a Q9650. Those were reviews we read before quickly grabbing it on the cheap. It's forums and the "can't hit 350fsb" stories that have concerned me, well, that and the temps. And in terms of reapplying thermal paste to the chipsets, a bunch of owners found Asus used some kind of glue as the TIM, and when they pulled back on the heatsinks they tore their chips apart. Did you ever overclock yours?

Probably not, unfortunately

A quick google suggests you're potentially in for problems using quad core Xeons on that board...
