@Bombastinator

I bought both of my chips for $65 shipped. Keep looking most of the x5460s are around 40 and you can order multiples. I got a matched pair of C0's because contrary to what someone stated earlier not only x5470s but also x5460s have E0 stepping. Just look up x5460 SLBBA you will see a ton of these things.

I am currently LOVING THIS THING. INSTANTLY RUNS BETTER THAN THE q8200. I ran some older games while waiting on battlefield to load and was locking the max fps the game allows in as high of a res as i could go. I'm guessing even without overclock this cpu is just THAT much better than my overclocked pile.

At anyrate im getting ready to bench mine with just the zalman cnps 9500a copper heatsink in my ultra full tower. It should run fairly cool in this as its large and very nicely tucked. I will post screens of my findings soon enough.

5460s already 75 a piece? Damn this thread is driving up the price of used server CPUs! IT guys parting out the old medical servers must be thrilled ^^ I haven't told my boss about this yet, going to surprise him when my P.O.S. office PC is rockin a Xeon in CPU-Z biggrin.gif I wonder if we have any old 771s lying around the office rolleyes.gif Plenty of garbage 775 boards though lmao.

I guess deep down I wanted to believe the sticker was good and the reason the CPU wouldn't boot was because of the flaws I found on it. It's running at normal temperatures now too. It's idling at 28/30 degrees in a 70 degree F room with a crappy E5200 stock cooler just resting on it with only a little thermal paste. The screenshot temps are from the CPU under small load, I can't wait to see what it will do once properly cooled and OC'd.
I don't think you understood me, I fully understand the point of this mod. What I meant by " the only boards that won't boot without adding microcode is the X38/X48 chipset" is the X38/X48 chipset is the biggest pain to get working properly if at all. The rest of the 31,35,41,45 chipsets are much easier to get working, albeit with varying degree of overclocking and functionality.

The micro code comes from either Intel or a donor socket 771 BIOS that supports the XEON chips.

So it was the sticker, I tried two on mine and neither worked until I cut a piece off of one and made it fit better. I still can get it to boot in my Maximus Formula, but right now I have no clue what microcodes the BIOS has... Any idea which intel microcode .bin has the right ones? I know its going to be a 10676 one, but which platform?

ROFL,

EVGA 780i is pimping a xeon 5460 also. I thought i had a bad sticker but my socket wasn't clear enough. So i opened my case up pulled the board AGAIN and ran the blade across it again. My setup seems to be running a bit hotter than the ep45 though, i was in a rush to get this thing running and goofed on thermal compound. It is showing 60s during load @ 3.16ghz which is DAMN HOT! I dunno if this chip will overclock now. The q8200 was at 55 or less overclocked 1ghz.

BATTLEFIELD 4 IS VERY PLAYABLE WITH GTX 460. I haven't even sli'd it yet but im seeing like 60fps in 720p. OK 1440x900 is Not so hot but still VERY PLAYABLE @ 30-40fps ultra. THIS THING EVEN AT 3.16ghz is smooth as baby bottom for gaming. I can now suggest this mod for anyone who wants a nice playable experiance.

I will post back with stock physics scores and we'll see how it compares to when i overclock.

Nic

I would think that E chips would be better than X chips, and L chips would be better than E chips (at a given clock) because of higher binning. L chips run at the same clocks with lower stock voltage, meaning that you can expect higher clocks at the same voltages as an X or E chip. Thusly, I would probably recommend that if you have a choice between an E5460 or X5460 (for example), go for the E chip as it's probably better binned.

So, I was directed to this thread by LDV617, who suggested I extend the life of my current system by doing this mod. The thing is, I live in Brazil and don't want to wait 2 months shipping for the adapter. Does anyone know the technical details of how does the mod work (for some reason, the original xtremesystems thread's link is broken to me)? I was wondering if I couldn't do it by myself using other, more readily available materials. Thanks! thumb.gif

No such thing as an E5460, and i wouldn't expect higher clocks with lower voltage...just means it runs stock at lower voltage and temps

I'm glad I've been able to put a smile on peoples faces. Still got alot of stickers left

I tried the 2nd sticker but still no luck. I think it might be the Memory. Because it stays on then shuts itself off. Im getting my new stickers soon so I'll try those out. But so far it seems like its my Ram. If I cant get it to boot with the new Stickers I'll order a cheap core 2 duo and low speed ram to confirm this motherboard is not defected.

Im using DDR3-1600MHz ram on a motherboard that only supports 1333 (OC) . Never had a problem like this before but I dont know...

ASRock G41M-VS3, LGA 775/Socket T Motherboard is the mothaerboard

I don't really know about how Intel does their binning, but in the past, mobile chips which are binned to run at lower voltages have been some of the best overclockers (ie mobile Barton). If Intel could make all of their 3GHz chips fit in an 80w TDP, why bother having 120w chips?

You're right though about there being no E5460, I hit up Wikipedia and found this chart:



So it looks like the top binned chips are potentially the L5430 (fastest 50w chip but unfortunately has a very low multiplier of 8x), the E5450 (fastest 80w chip, 9x multiplier) and the X5492 (fastest chip period but 120w binned, 8.5x multiplier). The X5470 has the highest multiplier (10x) but may not be a top bin as it's in the highest-needed-voltage-bin of 120w and not the highest clocked stock chip.
