With a high OC the westmere is nipping at the heels of a lot of higher end processors with single core performance, the bottleneck might be old motherboard tech and PCIe 2.0 or something.

Overclocking this x5650 is a breeze compared to my i7-920 C0!

Initial results (under 100% load):

http://valid.x86.fr/18lzqd

So, I'd like to confirm that the x5650 works on a Gigabyte X58-UD3R-SLI rev 1.0 with BIOS version F10N.

The only thing I'm having trouble with is getting it to stick on a 21x multiplier. It's either 20x or 22x. C-states enabled, turbo enabled. I'll have to keep testing.

Also, I'm seeing higher voltages at idle than load (1.28v vs 1.23v). I remember seeing something about that previously in the thread but can't find it.

That's normal called vdroop or voltage drop on load. If you have LLC or load line calibration, it makes the voltage on load drop less or none at all.

Ok, good to know. Thanks! I think it was dropping it too much on load as I've been seeing benchmark scores below what I've expected.

After enabling LLC, and setting the vcore to 1.2875 and QPI/VTT to 1.2. BCLK 193 x 22 multi. I'm seeing some improvement. Still only seeing 61 GFlops with IBT v2.54 though.

See this guys. It is an HP OEM board. can this be BClk overclocked? Any mod? any how? such an awesome pricing.

I heard it has pretty bad VRM management . but If it can handle i7 920 , it should be able to handle a moderately oc'ed x56xx xeon right?

I wouldn't risk it. After a quick search, it looks like any support for the Truckee has dried up. Couldn't even find the manual for that board.

If I had to guess, it doesn't feature the options in its BIOS to OC anything. It might run the Xeon stock, if at all, since it appears to support the i7 980x.

One article about the board, http://www.zdnet.com/article/hordes-of-owners-complain-of-problems-with-hp-elite-pavilion-pcs-using-core-i7/

Picked up a EVGA Classified E760 SLI off my workmate. Got it home to realise its a rev 1.0 that i will have to do the motherboard mod if i want to use my spare x5650 on it.

My P6DX58D-E is brilliant except only ram dims 1,5 and 6 are working. Glad to see alot of people still using these boards, ill probally be running this system till well after pcie 4.0 comes out.
