I just got an H60 on the cpu and am not impressed. Need to get a block for my asus 78 so I can hook up my full WC system. Dang thing is non reference and EK is the only one that makes a block for it.

Ek status shows "end of life." Thats great they dont make it any more.

Get a universal WB. They don't look as good, but you actually get cooler GPU core temps with them. Just make sure you put heatsinks on your VRMs.

Thank you for doing this review. I am thinking of doing something similar but I am going to try expand and do a little more comparative analysis of x58 vs x79 and maybe do some of the same benches for a 2500k since a lot of people are on those too, if I can find the time :/. I also have 7970 crossfire so we can see how crossfire works in comparison to your sli benches. I have a 1440p monitor too so I'll be able to give benches at that specific resolution.

Basically, I am thinking of comparing the following x58 cpus (because I currently have them):

i7 930 stock & OC
L5640 stock & OC
X5670 stock & OC

And comparing results to the following x79 cpus (because I currently have them):

i7 3820 stock & OC

Also 2500k maybe?

I might change some of the cpus based on what I can get in the coming weeks. I have a bunch of x58, X79, and 1155 boards I've been trying to fix but some of them I just can't figure out. Once I get that project out of the way I'll probably start my own thread here for the project.

Sounds good and Thanks for reading. You could just post your results here since there's already plenty of data from different users and their results.

Hey guys if you have a Xeon+X58 check out my Xeon Club here.

yessir.gif>- X58 Xeon Club -< yessir.gif

All you have to do is post your CPU-Z validation link with your OCN username to be approved. X58 users unite! I'm glad that I was able to bring you guys this review. Thanks a lot for all the rep as well.

Awesome chip... Can't wait to push it! I just hope this motherboard can hold out for another 5 years! lol

EX58-UD3R Rev 1.2

You're welcome. Another 5 years would be amazing and I think the X58 could still be good then. What's your GPU setup?

With your 780 you should walk all over me!

That's a nice score for the 680. The 780 Ti's look good, but price wise the 290x's looks just as good with $200 - $300 off.



Have you guys seen the GTX Titan Z review? It seems to be pretty bad and SLI 780 Ti's out do it. $3000.00 GPU is way to much anyways.

The GTX Titan Z isn't looking that good. Not only was the $3000.00 very expensive, but the card seems to under perform [a lot]. Titan Z was delayed, but reviews still went live.



Watts and Temps:



Performance:


Max Clock:



Goodness. Baseclock is only 706Mhz and the boost is 876mhz. The max is only 1058Mhz from the tests the Chinese magazine conducted. Could the tides change or AMD. The 295x2 is looking much better than expected.

Thoughts?

I think both are a pretty big waste of money TBH...

I've seen used R9 290 as low as $215 shipped each on ebay as recent as a couple days ago. Obviously those are stock reference coolers and high end dual and tri fire setups would need non-reference cooling of some type. The big time enthusiasts will go for a full loop and I assume they can build a full loop while spending under $900 for 3 290s and stay under the msrp for the 295x2
post #776 of 8006
Still seeing what the w5580 can do before posting. Once I find its top iff, Id like to get sone with as lose to my clock and system to see the differences. I really dont feel like installing my 920 back.

I try lol, I know I could get a higher score in all the 3dmarks if any of the questions I asked on the threads were answered, (not this thread) I have been trying to find out any info on the Kepler Bios Tweaker so I know what each thing really does and which are the best and worst to raise or lower in the voltage and power profiles and such, I know how to get the thermo downclocking disabled that was easy, I also was able to raise the power target voltage so there is no need for that anymore either, I would like some of them guys that really do know how to get into the guts of the bios and tweak it, but I guess they are holding on to their knowledge like a trade secret! Anytime I ask a question in any of those threads it just goes unanswered like I did not even post! No smart remarks nothing lol, I resulted to fumbling around my bios till I got 1320mhz core and 7200mhz memory 100% stable at 1.31 voltz on air, I have the classified card so the cooler on it is really good for stock air cooling!

I agree the R9 295x2 did turn me off when I saw the price. I figured that it would be even cheaper to just get two 290x's or two 780 Ti's. You are right about the Triple 290 price. I"m just going to stay patient and wait and see what comes next. I just have the GPU upgrade itch now. It's the only the left that I need want to upgrade.

Ok. Back on topic.


Here is a quick side by side comparison of my i7 920 @3.6 Ghz and W5580 @ 3.6 Ghz.

AIDA64 v 1.85.1600

I7 920 @ 3.6Ghz w/ HT
....................W5580 @ 3.6Ghz w/ HT

Queen - 41348.................................Queen - 41332

Zlib - 231.6 MB/s...............................Zlib - 231.7 MB/s
AES - 44047.....................................AES - 44079
Hash - 2089 MB/s.............................Hash - 2091 MB/s
VP8 - 3045.......................................VP8 - 3051
Julia - 12003....................................Julia - 11998
Mandel - 5817..................................Mandel - 5816
SinJulia - 4948................................SinJulia - 4953


Cinebench R15


I7 920 @ 3.6Ghz w/ HT.....................W5580 @ 3.6Ghz w/ HT

564 cb.............................................567 cb





They appear to be equally matched, BUT keep in mind that this is a workstation cpu and not an "X" type like the other guys on here. I am currently at 4.26Ghz on the W5580 but I think the H60 is about to reach it's limits. I'm hitting 71c on core 1. I'm going to have to install my WC system. Was hoping to get a block for my 780 direct cu but dang thing is nonreference and I'd like to find a deal and not pay full retail.

I'm going to try my best to hit 4.5Ghz but I'm already at 1.344v on cpu-Z. The scores @ 4.26ghz are up a good amount but we'll see if I can go higher.


Game benching seemed to be the same. Also while playing, average fps where the same. I did notice in Crysis 3 and Metro LL that they held a bit steadier while completely maxed out. Instead of going up and down a bit from say 21 - 28 fps, with the "W" they would stay 23 - 28 fps but would stay in the middle more often if you get what I'm saying.

oh man i have left my 920 on stock since day one and haven't found any needs to overclock it. i can see myself using the x58 for at least couple more years.
