Ive been doing some calculation and think this is actually a pretty good deal.

I have already upgraded my Q6700 for a X5460, netting a good boost and sold the Q6700 for as much as I paid for the X5460+adapter + shipping. So that's a 0$ upgrade in total.


Here, suppose I buy the Kit + a video card ( the same I already have and put both them In SLI )

-Kit : 450$
-Asus ENGTX 460 video card. : 80$ ( based on ebay )
-Corsair H60 : 65$
Total: 595$

Then sell the following : ( based on ebay price )

-Q9650 : 175$
-Asus P5q : 50$
-Geforce 560Ti : 120$
-Kingston HyperX 1066 ddr2 4x2gb : 90$
-Ocz stealth xtreme 600w Psu modded with silent noctua fan. : 30$
-Big air cooler : 20$
Minus 40$ ebay fees.
Total: 445$

So In total It cost me 150$
I now have 8gb DDR3 instead of DDR2, a badass PSU of double the power, in a totally ludicrous Case originally worth over 300$, with bottom space for PSU, a SLI video card setup that performs close to 700 series, a H60 liquid cooling, Dual 1.5 TB Hard drives (Raid!), a Sound card and a interesting motherboard to play with.

Not to mention that I need DDR3 and bigger PSU for when I buy a new motherboard + CPU and can keep using the H60 so that stuff is not wasted.

When I want to upgrade later on I will likely only have to buy Mobo and CPU, which will make the whole deal pretty trivial. I can Upgrade Ram and GPU anytime I like. Then, say one year from now, I can still sell the Motherboard + CPU for a decent sum.

Edit: Added details and corrected calculation.

I've often thought of dumping my x5460 paired to my 780i and 8 gigs of g. skill 1066. I've done the numbers its always cheaper to just buy into the newer tech at current costs. Resale value on certain boards is very good ie any nforce board with sli or any ddr3 board. That wont soon be the case as the landscape of gaming will and is changing significantly. I'd say spend that $450 on a nice fx-8350 for $179.99 and a $120 fx990a board. You can have those for cheap quad sli and supports ddr3. Just be smart buy newer tech.

Those Fx-8350 are barely 10% gain in single thread performance over my X5460. ( source: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html Single thread performance is still what is likely to bottleneck just about any game you play. Buying one of those sounds like a pretty bad idea to me for a meager 10% gain, and I still need to buy new RAM and New PSU for SLI for it to be worth anything.
Right now most games are bottle necked by my video card or memory speed, not CPU.

Just do the math, that case and the PSU alone are nearly worth the asking price. I have bought "cheap" computers and sold the parts on ebay before, for a profit. I think it's a valid approach.

im sorry, i play battlefield 3 and 4 primarily which have shown major improvements with heavily threaded cpus. I know currently im limited by the gpus I run but i have a line on a set of 670 2gb's for a good deal. At any rate i'd say that the fx series and i5/i7s put up much higher #s after overclock which at this point my x5460 isn't bad just isn't good.

I give you that, I've heard about how Battlefield 3-4 benefit greatly from high multithreading. And I also agree that most games will be taking that direction. However I like to play slightly older games with crazy specs and mods, and for that a good single thread performer is needed. For this reason I know the FX-series is not for me right now.

Hi Guys,
From the instructions in user's 000000 guide:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1431723/mod-lga775-support-for-lga771-xeon-cpus/860#post_21383296

If im reading this correctly,
I load my P5Q Pro Turbo bios (AMI)
Insert the 3 microcodes from the red box in the order they are listed
Save Updated BIOS

Flash and Im done?




BTW,
Here is some *** Material for all you multithreaded fans!! smile.gif
I put this together at work today (Hardware only)




Cheers
Justin

Pretty much, I did it for my P5q and it was ultra easy. According to 000000 the order in which you insert the microcodes is not important.

Triumph at last!



Seems that speedstep is working too.

Now to start playing with multipliers and see how much we can get out of this beastie!!

and if anyone else needs it:
