912 thats a good sell, you could buy a 5820k and x99 with that, still, the rampage has some sentimental value i would think, at least i would have it

Ok, sounds good.
Just enjoy it smile.gif

@mohiuddin

There is no *safe* "overvoltage", also the motherboard I was using was applying a higher voltage than was selected in the BIOS. See my very first posts...(and those of my alter-ego).

Lastly, I dont know the history of the chip.

Yeah, I think SETI@home is very hard on them. Its OK if everything is running/calibrated correctly, but if there's a problem it'll find it!

Some people here have been running it for years with no bother.

I have a couple x5660 cranking at 100% 24/7 4ghz just under 1.3v for over a year.
Doing a primegrid challenge right now 118 cores going 100% loaded.

I miss it already, it was such a fun board/platform to overclock. Yeah but 5820K is not really worth the exchange, my X5670 was pretty much on par with it.
I have the rampage V on it's way to me and looking for something with 8 to 10 cores / unlocked multiplier or atleast 3Ghz of base frequency per core.

Anyone has solid information about unlocked xeons on x99 ?

I remember seeing the R3BEs on eBay for $400 when this whoole X58-Xeon thing started... now you can't buy one for the black market price of a kidney, I know, I tried.

one a side note, here's my dual 980Ti (stock clocks) and X5650 @ 4.378GHz benchmark
