So, you are getting a bargain there, mate. A degraded SB which will run @ stock or a bit above stock if you are lucky. Grats. You know what they say. You get what you pay for. Personally, I would never, ever, buy a used CPU off e-bay. I'd buy pretty much any other part EXCEPT a CPU, b/c I know that the e-bay CPU seller crowd is made of the kind of people who run their chips 22/32 nm chips at 1.4V-1.5V and 99 C 24/7.

The only exception is if you manage to find a corporate/office seller, but talk is cheap, and smne may pose as a corporate or office seller whereas they are not.
Depends what you do with your Xeon. If you are playing Pacman, Tetris or just browse the net with your Xeon then sorry, you are dumb. You never needed a Xeon to play Tetris, Pacman and run Firefox. You could do that with a $10 Pentium 4 Williamette @ 1.8 GHz.

Now in 2012-2013 3D gaming on the other hand and in CPU bound games, a 4.5 GHz 771 Xeon vs a 3.8 GHz 771 Xeon will make a whole world of difference. It will be like night and day. It will make the difference between playable and stuttering/unplayable.

There, I said it.
Absolutely. The difference it makes in serious modern gaming is night and day. Ofc, back in 2008 it didn't matter. If you play 2008 games it won't matter. If you play 2013 games at max settings and 1920X1080 or higher, the difference between an X5482 ay max overclock and an E5440 will be night and day.

There is a reason people overclock, bro. They don't overclock just to heat their room or stress their PSU. People overclock for a reason, and it is called FPS. Higher OC=more FPS. Ofc, like I said before, you won't know much about the concept of FPS if you play Tetris. If you play Battlefield 4 on the other hand, then you start really caring about FPS and about squeezing max performance out of your equipment, which is the whole point of going with a high end Xtreme Xeon versus the budget models.

You do realize the xeons haven't exactly been sitting in a box for 6 years? They've been crunching numbers inside some hot server box in a data center 24x7 for the better part of 5 years. And if you really think the difference between 4.5G and 3.8G is night and day, then all the more reason to go to a modern setup for not much more then? The difference, between integrated memory controllers latency advantages and PCIe 3.0 bandwidth advantage, would be heaven and earth.

It boots, but it seems that it handles it very bad. It crashes every 5min even at stock speed (FSB 333), with BSOD and so on...
I managed to boot and load windows at FSB 375... but same bad behavior.
Default detected vCore for the X5460 is 1.20v. I tried 1.30v and even 1.40v with no luck. I tried to push every voltage (VTT, NB, etc) to a reasonable max... BSOD and BSOD again.

I also tried my X5460 on a P5K Premium and surprisingly i managed to boot stable at FSB 460, with a poor heatsink/fan (from a pentium E2160) and 4x1Gb DDR2-667 Corsair Value Edition.
4.370 Ghz !! oh my god...

I'm astonished... See the screenshot !


Your CPU will burn up in these conditions(Voltage, frequency, cooler)

Hi,
Can someone tell what are normal idle temperatures for E5450, mine are around 41-43, and on full load doesn't go over 62?
Thanks

What cooling are you using?

CM TX3 with noctua fan ona 1700rpm.

I have that sticker and a X5450 xeion cpu I got for $43 on ebay, Had to try this too, I'll try it in this P5G41 expendable board I have that already has a Q9650 in it (equivalent) CPU 3ghz/12mb/1333 I'll let ya know how it goes in a week or two!

Can someone help me update the microcode of this bios for my Xeon E5430?

Thanks p5k-1201-ahci.zip 624k .zip file

EDIT: No need anymore, i added the microcode myself.

Is my temp to high? And are my settings ok?
I´m using this cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and MX-4 thermal compound
How much can I go or am I over the line already? Dont want it to break bacause of the temperatures



(Volt in BIOS is 1.26875v)

Thanks!!

for that overclock its a lil high but, you are on air. I have a h80 so its similar but not the same check out my temps at this point i am large fft testing it




This thing needs better thermal paste, im using some ****ty stuff i got from Microcenter for $5 its an Arctic Silver derivative i think.

@ robertr81

Set your TJ max to 85 in Core temp and then post your temps.

@ n1sm

Is your TJ max set to 85?

That is alot of voltage for that speed...

I use only 1,365V for 4.45 GHz
