They were overheating until I aimed a Panaflo @ them.

Sorry to hear that. 4.3Ghz-4.4Ghz is still great for a Hexa-Core. 3.6Ghz-4Ghz is all you'll really need anyways for gaming and everyday usage. They CPU will take care of any task you throw at it in now time. Anything more than 4Ghz is money and helps with the benchmarks, I didn't overclock my CPU to high clocks overnight, but then again I think I did. To get everything stable it takes a few days and sometimes a few weeks. There are many settings that you can tweak and get better results. I would be careful with certain voltages though. These 32nm can easily be destroyed.

I love the heatsinks on the Sabertooth X58. I've never expereinced any overheating problem. Even on the hottest days the heatsinks help get rid of the heat. If you are having issues you can always remove them and add your own TIM.

That's great man. I had my CPus around those same voltages. I'm trying a 4Ghz offset. I've posted on this in a previous post. Check here:

It's so damn tricky to get it right.

We are still getting those number together. we might have come to a conclusion. Running 2000Mhz on my board is a huge task since it's rated at 1866Mhz. I've overclocked the RAM to 2200Mhz though and it's stable.

It appears that you have hit your max. A lot of the X5650\X5660 tops off at You can try increasing the QPI\VTT a bit. 1.35v for the QPI\VTT should be more than enough. If you are struggling to post then I believe you might have already got to your highest point. Make sure to keep the CPU PLL low or set to AUTO unless you want a dead X5650\L5639. After a certain point these Xeons love the power and that becomes a problem. Another thing you can try is to disable the C-states and EIST settings. If that doesn't work then 4.0Ghz will be fine for just about anything you'll be running on your PC. Stock settings do just fine on my PC and I usually run Stock most of the time unless I need more CPU speed. 4.0Ghz will simply be overkill for gaming, especially for a single GTX 770.
About time they got it right. PM me your results ASAP. I've been busy streaming a ton of games and doing other things. I really need those results for comparison to my 2000Mhz results. You lucked out on the price as well. Congrats. Just tell me your highest stable overclock. I also found out some more info with my Xeon X5660, but I'm testing just to verify. I'll post the results once I get everything finished.

Thank man, I really appreciate the input! I will give your advice a try and see what I end up with.

First post, just wanted to say thanks for all the info here.
I just got running an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 with a x5650, it seems to be working real well.
Had it up to 4ghz 1.3V 53c on air prime95 blend stable. Memory was around 14xx 8-8-8-24 1n.
But I think I will keep it around 3.5ghz and mem 1600 8-8-8-24 1n, it was 1.225V and 48c prime95 blend stable
I have a dual socket Asus Z8NA server with 2 X5660 CPUs . But there isnow way to OC that oard that I know of.
I am so glad to see the low prices of used Server class CPUs.and that they are being put to good use.
Thanks again.

Well the X5660 is still amazing me.

I was multi-tasking like crazy last night while using the stock settings [3Ghz during load]. I was running a heavily HD render video. Went from approx. uncompressed\lossless 45GB to a manageable compressed 618MB and I didn't have to change the resolution] with little to no visual lost. At the same time I was converting a MP4 to another format and uploading a video to Youtube. My CPU Load was 90% - 100% and peaked at 33c. I was still able to use my PC with no hiccups. I was even able to load up a few videos on Youtube\Netflix and watch them with no issues at all. Even went to Comedy Central and all of the videos played with no issues. I figured the videos might be jumpy since I was doing so much at stock settings, but my PC never slowed down. I thought about loading up a game just to see how good or bad it would perform, but I didn't.

-Converting video format
-Rendering \ heavily compressing HD video 45GB to 618MB
-Uploading YT video
-Watching videos online

I guess next time I'll play a game on Steam or something.

There are tons of them out there. Just use google and you'll find at least 5 easily. You can always ask people here. Many will help including myself.

Welcome to the site. Seems like you have a lot of PCs. I'm also glad that X58 finally has more affordable upgrades. The RAM is still much to high, but DRAM has been like that. I believe I was reading were they will have to drop the prices soon. 4Ghz on your X5660 will be more than enough for anything for awhile. Hex-cores just run circles around plenty of programs with little to no issues.

So curiously every game I run uses max 40-50% cpu usage and I have not seen the cpu go over 45/50C. I am tempted to add more volts and go to 4.8ghz thoughts? Strictly to see if it makes a difference in games.

Don't focus on CPU Usage or Temps for that matter. The higher the CPU OC the more FPS you should gain. This isn't always the case for all games and all cards. If you are already maxing your cards then the extra OC will be pointless. For instance there is minor difference for 4.4Ghz and 4.6Ghz for gaming. Going past 4.2Ghz doesn't even seem like it's worth it. Those little extra 100-200mhz are minor. Maybe 1fps - 5fps gain. Your biggest issue was the Vcore it took to boot with 4.5Ghz - 4.6Ghz. I don't care how low the temperatures are, you still can't pump a crap load of voltage into the chip with risking some serious damage to the CPU itself. Probably potential damage to other components as well. You can go for it, but don't be surprised if your degrade your chip and OC performance. Don't be surprised if you struggle to even hit 4.4Ghz or 4.2Ghz. It's your money my friend.

You temps look great for your OC. I've already done 4.8Ghz OC in games. It's not worth it if you can hit 4.6Ghz and so on.....> 4.6Ghz isn't with it if you can get to 4.4Ghz. 4.2Ghz is all you really need and anything high is money. It all depends on your VCORE and TEMPs. The last thing you want to do is ruin the poor chip. I think I'm done hitting ridiculous speeds with my chip. I'm afraid I may be witnessing some degrading myself. It's easy to do with these 32nm, but I'm still hitting 4.6Ghz with no issues. I'm just noticing some issues with OC that were once stable. Trust me, be grateful and enjoy a good OC.

So our mail here is inefficient and I'll have to pick it up today after work. I think I'm gonna go for a 4.2 Ghz and QPi/DRAM ratio of 2 for 24/7 if I can hit it off. That should be more than enough. thumb.gif

The chip wasn't too bad once i kicked it in the tail..

umm..FYI...don't ever be @ 1.7v and move the OV jumper on that board..
chip ate the whole 2.1v..
It did not like it..
PS:I'd recommend to never use the OV jumper on Sabertooth..I tried it with other chips..they didn't like it..even @ voltages lower than 1.7
