Does someone have here single GTX 670 and OC 'ed xeon? It's possible to make a test in firestrike(standard)? I would like to compare, because mine looks pretty low:/



btw, I was able to lower my VTT voltage to 1.275V and rise uncore freq wink.gif gflops rised by a little


was pretty warm in the room(beacuse of girlfriend;)). Whats more, my Xeons are running with air cooling and of course test is with case closed;)

Added the list of compatible X58 motherboards to the full review. Just look for the page named "List of motherboards compatible with Xeon 56xx".

Congrats. Everything is looking good for you.

I can run some single GTX 670 tests or simply the Firestrike benchmark for you. I just need to know if you are running stock or overclocked settings. Also what is the frequency you are hitting after the boost.

Can someone help me. I have a X58A-UD7 Gigabyte motherboard. I had a i7 920 OC to 3.9GHz working fine with 6 x 2GB of RAM. Each triple is the same. So I have 3 of these and 3 of these. So my problem is I recently got a Xeon X5660 and it will not overclock. It will overclock a tiny bit but when I try to do a good bit the computer will turn on, I do not get the splash screen or even to the bios setup so I have to reset the CMOS and start again just to get the computer to start. What am I doing wrong. I know you change the exact same settings as a i7 920. I did have a problem with all 12 GB of RAM being recognized when I first installed the chip. Could it be a faulty chip?

Did you update your BIOS before swapping the chip? Does it run fine at stock? How far do you get before the above problem occurs?

Sounds like what happens with my board. If the QPI link speed gets to around 8 GHz it won't start. Turn down the multiplier from x48 to x44 or x36 and see if it helps.

I always have the multiplier on x36 when overclocking. No the last time I updated the bios was a few months ago. When I had the chip overclocked a bit Battlefield 4 crashed on me and it also crashed when updating windows and I was just lucky it didn't corrupt windows on me.

There was another user that had a similar problem a few weeks ago. Might be with the same motherboard model. I'm not sure if he solved the issue, though.

I see that I read through the thread. It was only two or three days ago. He has the exact same problem as me. He wasn't even overclocking much either like me. I see some guy's get 4 GHz and above running fine. I cannot even get into bios or even system to boot like him. Maybe we have bad chips. About motherboard compatibility, every site says mine is compatible.
post #2599 of 7890
I just re-read his post and we have different motherboards. At least he can get post when overclocking, it's just Windows not booting for him. I cannot even get post when overclocking.

What voltages and frequencies are you using?
The 32nm Xeons are not the same as the 45nm quadcores - you can't use quite as high voltages, and the uncore is different - you can use down to 1.5x memory multiplier.
