I actually just got an x58 setup the other day and it's quite fun. Everything feels so damn snappy, games run great and it runs cool at 4.2Ghz in games. Generally in the 40s.

I plan on going multi GPU for the first time in the near future when I see a cheap MSI 270x locally.

I had the same problem on my non-es 5650. Since I had a 920 on my board before and I had messed around the boot option in msconfig, the pc was booting into the previous max number of cores (4 phyiscal with 8 thread). Go into your msconfig and try to set everything default under boot. Hopefully this fixes your issue.

Also make sure all cores option is on in your bios.

That's good to hear. I was thinking about 290x CrossfireX myself. I might stick with the 670s longer and wait and see what AMD and Intel has coming.

Lol, but they've been expensive for years. I would love to get one or a couple actually. The price is just to great.

I plan on doing the X5660 in my system, anyone tried it on the X58 asus p6t deluxe v2? I could not believe the prices on this chip on ebay! I always wanted to get the xeon but it was just so expensive.

I am thinking withe the higher Tcase temps and just the spec of the chip over the 920, that I should see a boost in performance in CPU based games like Arma3 and older games of that series, and a few other games I play that I notice that they like more on the CPU side than GPU

So if anyone has tried it on the board I mentioned please let me know if I am wasting 190.00 or not

Thanks and the 1202 is the latest Bios just FYI but that is really good news! I can only get my 920 to 4.3ghz and even then is seems like my buddy's system with a 1090T is getting to close in bench'es lol, Plus I love the higher Tcase temps of the X5660, and the 6 cores lol, if you have time post some screenies of your system running like cinebench 11.5 or R15 and maybe a 3dmark of some sort
