Kana-Maru, can you give me some valuable input? My Laptop currently ha sa Core i7 960 D0 installed, what will the heat differences be with a W3690 installed. Theres no overclocking on these machines so stock clocks. both are 130W TDP but one is 32nm, the other 45nm, one is 4 core, the other 6

what am i looking at?

Running Twin X5670's at 4Ghz, 4x4GB of Kingston FB-DDR2 Ram, with fun 4-4-4-12 Timmings(Very fast for DDR2), Has currently Twin Micron M500 120GB SSD's in RAID 0 for the OS, and 4x2TB Seagate Constelation storage Drives, has a Soundblaster Audigy 2 zs Platinum Soundacard, a PCI-E USB 3.0 Host card, and a Quadro K5000 strapped in. Usually only use it for rendering models and video and stuff. The goodies, it also has an IBM T221 As the monitor(with the twin Matrox boxes) so i have it at 55Hz at max res smile.gif

Tbh, I've tried gaming on it, was meh, but playable for sure. Nothing insane, Just wanted a sperate workstation i could do my renders on and have my main rig open to game smile.gif

Also one in the Office and one in the "Cave" hahahahahahahaha


Oh, ok. Nice. I read that the RAM ran hot, I see the ram cooler below the CPU coolers. You meant X5470, right? I decided there was easier ways to get 8 threads (or more) like a X5650 ..biggrin.gif though I did put a X5470 on a P45 board for ****z n gigglez.

Ram cooler is 3 Delta EFB0412VH's strapped to it, very high flow. Good temps, not as good as when it was 3 FFB0412SHN

Yes X5470, my bad haha.

I want to build a twin X5690 rig next. I guess I can say some spec but if I build it the way planned I will have near 400-700W of avalible cooling dissipation per CPU!!! 6Ghz anyone?

@GENXLR Maybe the thing to do is for someone here with a dual socket board to do a benchmark with one and two chips enabled?

Games are unlikely to be programmed for multi-socket environments. I wasn't trying to be rude, but that I don't want you to spend a lot of money and be disappointed smile.gif

I hear you, I was going to run a dual socket system regardless, either its an EVGA SR-2 1366 or an ASUS Z10PE-D8 2011v3

Totally OT - the archive of Ars Technica's site contains loads of now retro articles and writeups. This is where I learned most from....back in the day smile.gif

http://archive.arstechnica.com/

Reminds me how much I still want to build in an Apple G5 case!

@GENXLR it's totally a guess, but perhaps a newer socket/arch will handle the thread/cache/memory mixup better (so I'd guess go 2011)?

EDIT - forgot how I found the old Ars site : http://archive.arstechnica.com/reviews/3q99/bp6/bp6-1.html Dual - Dual socket research smile.gif

Ironically I have a G5 with my computers

I always loved those Apple G5 cases, they make great sturdy furniture.
