I just want to say "Congratulations" and "Thanks" to @Kana-Maru for creating, participating and maintaining this thread [and to the Mods, of course] which has had 300,000+ views since he made it!

Long live X58!

PS This 2nd 5650 seems fine after the 1.45v Vcc abuse* biggrin.gif Now running 3.4GHz at 1.15v

*you'll note I didn't go high on the Uncore Voltage

Thanks man. I didn't think that it would last this long since it's a old platform. Now we see how viable and popular the X58 platform is. This topic is a little over 2 years and counting. No one is going to forget about the X58 at this pace, even new enthusiast. I'm glad I chose this place as the main base for my reviews, test and benches.

How long did you abuse it? I wanted to see how long it would go at 1.45v.

Yeah, the price of X79 boards are just as high as x58, or more.
I have an E5-2670 in an Asus x79 Sabertooth no can't over clock at all.
Also have a dual Asrock 2011 with two E5-2670. still no overclocking.
Unless you need AVX or the two extra cores, or come upon a cheap X79 board.....

For BOINC primegrid my X5660 @ 4ghz takes roughly 50% longer to do a work unit because of the AVX.
The E5-5670 is a Sandy bridge CPU.
Running primegrid my CPU throttles down to 2.8-2.9 ghz.Should be 3.2ghz Must be the CPU wattage limit, even though I raised it.
My temps are in the 50s so it is not temp limit.

The E5-V2 series CPUs are starting to fall in price 10 core 400$,- 500$ again if in need of AVX....

The E5-1600 xeons can be overclocked. I have heard the top tier like 1650 hexcore are and the E5-1620 are not.
But the I have heard of 1620 being unlocked but no info if they are ES or what board they were on.
It maybe hit or miss

Gonna reach for 4.4GHz

previously was running 4.2Ghz @ 1.29v ~ 1.33v under load.

4.4Ghz needs 1.343v with CPU Impedance set to "Less" on my setup. It hits 1.348v under IBT load

QPI is working at 3.73GHz with 1.28v IOH, and 1.269v for the QPI PLL, QPI Signal Compensation set to "Less"

I left the Uncore at 3GHz with 1.28v - I might be able to go less volts

Memory is pumping out a little over 2GHz cl8.8.8. 21, 2T tRFC 60 - it droops to 1.64v

Passed Asus Real Bench 15minutes.

Passed IBT 3072mb, 10 iterations, producing 93.3243 max GFlops


seems stable

All of the X79 E5-1600 Series can be OC'd. Even the 8-core E5-1680V2

Thanks, great infos biggrin.gif
I read around that it is still possible to overclock a bit the 2670 through bclk and turbo multiplier. Is that true?

Mostly because, if it's true, it should be possible to make the e5 run at around 3.4ghz, maybe even 3.5, and that frequency should give better scores than a x56xx at 4.8, while giving better power consumption and 2 more cores. Considering that the e5 on ebay runs at around 90 euros included shipping, and a x79 motherboard can be found at around 200, it would be an upgrade for nearly zero cost, since i believe i can sell my x5670 and my p6t for about 300 here, or maybe just a little bit less.
Does my reasoning make sense? biggrin.gif
