[MOD] LGA775 Support For LGA771 Xeon CPUs - Page 272

post #2711 of 12464
I agree with you on that. Only a very small percentage of users should be interested in the 771 mod. Aged platform without sata3 and usb3, ram limitations, bios hassle, insane prices for decent 775 boards. So its really just an upgrade option for dual cores or slow quads in existing systems for people with some skill and interest. Lets see how prices develop.

Too bad that most of the retired server cpus never see the free market. You wouldnt believe what stuff most companies throw in the dumpster.

Yes, in the name of security lots of companies bin entire servers instead of just the hdds, massive waste.

Hey can someone tell me the Windows 7 experience index score for a e5450? or x5450?

Xeon prices have been raised but still the cost is lower than a Q9450 or Q6600.
But it seems all seek for the best Xeon, one that will be QX9770.
Still a QX9770 costs, well not only costs a lot, it is not worth those money.
Lower end Xeons are still fast cpus and of course there are the 65nm Xeons there.

Assuming you have a decent motherboard that all those years works OK and you`re still running it with a Dual Core, then any Xeon will be a huge upgrade.

USB3 card, a NEC / Renesas uPD720201 with 2+2 ports costs just a little and it is really fast. I have two such cards.
Look for "D720201" in ebay, search title including description.
uPD720202 (2 port) is even cheaper, look for "D720202" title & description.
There are even cheaper USB3.0 cards but with not such good chipset.

This is my last addition to my Xeon collection.

Xeon_3_cpus.jpg

One E5440 is for my co-worker upgrading from Q6600 as he plays games all the time.
As he has never overclocked this cpu even at stock speed will be a good upgrade, but I`ll go there modding his mobo and do a mild overclock of 400FSB with the stock Q6600 cooler, as the cooler will be more efficient on this cpu than it was in his Q6600.

With those 3 Xeons I have bought totally 10 Xeon, so I can be happy they cost a lot less than a Q9450...
This made it possible.

Of course I agree Xeon cpu prices are a bit high at the moment but not so high that makes any difference on if it is worth it. It does.

Why would you guys just overclock to 4.0 Ghz? These are Xeons we are talking about, you should make the best use of them since they are the tightest binned chips made by Intel.

I'm presently working on stabilizing one of my x5470 at 4.65Ghz+ with OCCT stress test. As long as ambient temps stay low I can get 4.65 Ghz stable with 1.43125V set In bios.

I made a very quick test on one of the two E5440 I got.

It seems it is a good one!
How do you know... !

As I like sometimes to show off I uploaded a video of a quick test, just a show off.
To those who think OC is difficult, needs a lot of cooling, expensive heatsinks, bla, bla, bla.
I OC more than 15 years... wink.gif
This OC and video was made at a fraction of time. In the next few PC reboots, after it has run in, the cpu will run on even lower Vcore.
It is just cause it is a good one and when socket pins make full contact will run even better. As long as you don`t apply too much Vcore to make degradation to cpu.

Around 4GHz overclock is the sweet spot for this mod in my opinion. By increasing the vcore you will exponentially increase your power usage and temps. Unless you got free electricity it is just not worth the extra cost for daily usage to go for the max overclock. You will also need some good cooling to get those high overclocks and not everybody who wants to do a cheap upgrade has that. Sure it is fun to test and see what your cpu is capable off, but not 24/7. A 4 GHz overclock is also alot easier to get stable. I prefer a lower power bill, low noise and temps.
And people that want a cheap upgrade don't buy a x5470 anyway because they are way overpriced these days.

@patentman

Congrats on your Xeon collection. If I find a good offer I will also buy 1 or 2 more chips for testing around. In the end I just need a good upgrade for my work pc. For some reason it wont work properly with my xeon while it runs great in my old 965P board (post 2589). My research also lead me to the NEC usb3 controllers. I currently have one of them in the mail from china, hope it gets here in one piece.

I just dropped an X5460 E0 stepping in my HTPC last night and its the best $55 I've spent on computer parts in long long time. So far I've been benchmarking it at stock clocks (3.16GHz) and its keeping up or slightly beating the E8500 at 4.27GHz it replaced in every test. thumb.gif I can't wait to see how far I can push this chip.
