More editing. I've been pretty busy lately. Hope you all had a good new year so far.

Thanks a ton thumb.gif.

I'm still going to be updating the CPU and GPU sections. Especially for a lot of the latest games.

Awesome looking forward to HT on/off comparison in latest games.

Is there a listing of all the X58 motherboards that the Xeons will work on, and the ones that don't?

Have an opportunity to be an Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard for a decent price. Does this board offer voltage terminals for a voltage meter?

We will see about HT on and off. That will be interesting to see. I'll probably just run a series of benchmarks during high end games like Crysis 3 and newer titles.

Yes there is. I haven't updated it yet. I'm going to be adding a big list to the article I posted above. The list will contain all of the X58 motherboards that will work with the Xeons. I will let you know when I upload them.

Nope. I wish it did. The Sabertooth didn't get that. it does have the CPU and RAM over-voltage though. You'll have to do it the old fashion way.

Hmm. Thanks for the reply. That's kinda scary. Even though my in-OS readings are higher than the terminals they are still way off. My CPU VTT in OS reads 1.36 while on the terminal it's only 1.28/1.275, DRAM reads 1.636 when the terminal says 1.60, CPU seems to be pretty close, in OS says 1.34 and the terminal reads 1.33.. still though 150$ for an Asus Sabertooth in "great condition" isn't bad.

$150 is a GREAT price for the Sabertooth X58. That's a reasonable price before the Xeon 56xx price hike. I know there are apologist and re-sellers who go on to talk about "demand" and things like that. I don't want to hear it. It was price gouging at it's finest for X58 MBs.

Your terminals and OS readings are off. They say that you shouldn't depend on OS reading that much anyways. Did you try to check the voltages while running a 100% Load on the CPU + RAM usage?
