Guys, what will happen if I unscrew the 4 hex screws on the socket? I don't really know what to do with the SR-2's backplates. They have already been partially cut off to mount water blocks and only the middle rectangular part of the size of the socket is still there, cut around the 4 screws. Do I need to remove it or just leave it be if I want to mount a different cooler?

Those 4 screws hold the bracket to the socket on. You can in theory remove them and the board will run fine without them, but in order to swap the chips out you will be forced to work with the board in a horizontal orientation, else the chips will fall out when there's no heatsink/waterblock pressing down on them.

So the whole mounting assembly (with the lever) WILL come loose after I remove those 4 screws?
I'm kinda anxious not to crush the CPU to the socket afterwards.

I can buy 2 Noctua D15's but oh the poor SR2's PCB, dammit. I'm also getting 6x4GB Predators 2133 with those uber tall heatspreaders.
Or I can go AIO route and pray to the MHz god they will never leak.

I tweaked the fan arrangement a bit and now my temps look like this after 1h of prime95:



CPU-Z reports 1.11-1.13 Vcore for each CPU.

Drool drool drool! Goddam I want one! Took me few minutes to realise why your CPU-Z had an extra set of temps............rolleyes.gif

I don't really know what I'm talking about but it does seem a little hot for stock.

About 10 mins Prime95:




And a few mins after I stopped Prime95:

Anyone know what these are like to overclock say 2 x X5675?

EVGA Classified SR-X Motherboard LGA 2011 270-SE-W888 T6-F4

That's an SR-X for socket LGA2011. There are some overclockable ES chips for that board though.
SR-2 is rock stable but doesn't seem to do above 200 BCLK. Mind you it's LGA1366 but not an X58. It has an Intel 5520 Server chipset.

I'm going to change the backplates to the small ones I found in the box from the SR2 and reseat the coolers as those Tuniqs should be a few degrees better than a Hyper 212.

Any of you guys on x58 make the upgrade to a Ryzen system. I am seriously on the fence about switching. Is there much of an improvement over my current X5660 @ 4.2 GHz. All I use the PC for is browse the internet and benchmark the odd time and play games. I know the multi core is increased and single core is increased by a small bit.

Two times in the past few days I have had an entire Ryzen build sitting in the shopping cart of a parts website and twice I just said to myself it ain't worth it.

I was looking at a Asus crosshair VI(€255), Ryzen 5 1600 and 16GB's of Flare X RAM 3200 CL14(€200). The reason for that motherboard is it is supposedly the best overclocking board and RAM as it is best for Ryzen. I was thinking of that CPU in that I can update to a better CPU when revision 2 or 3 of Ryzen is released and I would have a good motherboard that will work well with them(I hope so anyway).

It is roughly €1,000 to spec that build without a graphics card. I am just on the fence as if there is negligible difference between my system and the Ryzen one there is not much point in upgrading considering my uses.

I will not switch to Zen or any Intel for the time being. I am very happy with my x5650 at 4500 MHz and do not have the peripherals for 9000Hz gaming or streaming. For the things I do with my computer, game at 1080, and light productivity this is more than enough. I am planning a huge upgrade in the fall when the new INTEL platform is out.

Ask yourself the following question : what can't you do with your current Xeon? Would you like to code hardcore, stream your gaming adventures and play at minimum 144Hz? If those are things you want to do, then by all means, change the platform. Bear in mind, ZEN is not yet where it should be in terms of motherboards. Have a look at the dozens of issues with RAM stability. You will not be happy coming from one of the most stable platforms out there to one where you need to nurse the RAM for 3200 MHz usage. None of the ZEN motherboards are future proof given the issues. Sure, some may be fixed with BIOS updates but others will probably get several revisions before they are on par with what customers expect.

When I bought my x58, i bought the most recommended mobo on OCN and Toms. The UD3 for the price. I had Rev 1.1 and it was crap! Could not overclock at all without forcing draconian voltages. I then had a ram slot die due to the VX and Gigabyte sent me the next revision which worked much better. Then this revision had a thing where after not using the computer for a few weeks, due to my studies in the UK, i would come home and turn the machine on, it would loop reset. I would have to load BIOS defaults and then load the oc again. Then I said F-it and bought the FIII mobo and it was perfect. One revision, top of the line in the ATX format. The only one better was the R2E but it was EATX. So I ended up paying money for 2 mobos!


At the end of the day, you are the only one who knows if ZEN is better or not. What we tell you here on the forums should be a guideline and not a 'yes you must do it because we say so'.

I've changed my RAM to HyperX Predators 2133. Currently testing 6x4GB 1800 CL10.

Only the dreadful memory support on the SR-2 is playing tricks, still no more than 20GB visible and yet any HW info program does show Hexa-channel with 6 sticks installed.
