Any one here know if the recent hole in Intel's ME firmware reported on by Ars effects the X5xxx Xeons (X5660, X5650, etc)?

The latest ME 'discovery' is for Skylake and newer. So, we're safe from drive-by USB hacks.

The ME 'functions' have been part of Intel lore since P4, so best to never turn the Xeon on again. biggrin.gif

Our chipset is not affected by remote code execution, but it is by local USB port, you need a crafted bootloader within the GPT USB partition to bring up the DEBUG mode in the X58.
Also, you will notice because on our system the board will actually HALT and it is available only at power OFF \ boot time.

If anything I would upgrade to X299 or Threadripper for future-proofing based on the type of work you say you do. Coffee-lake won't get any CPU's that have more than 6 cores so similar to what you did with X58, you'd be able to do with X299 later down the line if you didn't want to shell out a ton of cash for a more powerful processor right this moment.
That's why I like to wait until OS's have been out for a little bit before making the move. Similar to certain software/drivers. I avoided Windows 10 for the first year but since upgrading it's been great.

Thanks for opening my eyes up to the x299 platform. It really does seem to be the logical choice for me. I am probably going to sell my X58 stuff as a "bundle" as it really does perform quite well. My only issue is what motherboard to get. Right now I am stuck between the ASUS Prime or the ASUS Prime Deluxe.

I also benched a i7 7800x. seems as the first serious contender to a possible upgrade.

Anyone got anything they want to see for an X5675 @ 4.6ghz vs a 7800x @ 4.6ghz?

Love to hear how you like the upgrade and the overclocking ability of the 7800. I am looking at the 7820X as Microcenter has it for $499 or the 7800 ($299). I am just not sure if I want thr ASUS Prime or Prime Deluxe motherboard to go with it.

I can't recommend ASUS anymore after my experience with X99. My personal preference will be to go for an ASRock board the next time I build a new machine. I've used them in the past because of their price but now that the dust has settled, they are by far the most reliable of the bunch I've used and have the most features at the best price point. MSI used to have spotty mobo's (the worst BIOS updates in recent history) but they seem to be alright now, just haven't had experience with them since Sandy-Bridge.

I swore I would only get an Asus Sabertooth from now on after my experience with my X58 board and the appearance and features of Sabertooth boards since, but it looks like Asus is using TUF as a more budget brand now. I was okay with getting fewer features than the price point demands because I knew the quality of components was higher, but the TUF Z370 boards look like they're lacking more than usual.
post #12908 of 13159
As far as Asus goes, I am sticking with them as my P6t Deluxe V2 has been pretty bulletproof for the 9 years I have had it (overclocked CPUs from Day 1). Aesthetically, I'm not a fan of the Tuf boards. They look too "chunky". I may just go for the Prime Deluxe or maybe even the Rampage. Just not sure yet. For the CPU, I am going for the 7820.

I would avoid the Asus TUF series now a days. Seems most brands have switched up a bit of stuff from 8-9 years ago, so don't go by past brand experience as a whole. Seems Asus & AsRock have reports of LLC settings not working in the bios.

As for OS usage on my X58 UD7 mobo, it was all fine for while. But X58 ICH10R RAID drivers are not supported in Windows 10, so I had to modify the OS to use older Intel drivers. But it seems lately, Win10 updates have may my X58 unstable and BSOD at times, so I may have to run old Win7 64 if I put it back together. It has to many features to give up on it still, lol

I wanted to go with a military theme at one point and the TUF boards were perfect for that. I bought spray paint and a pattern kit to give a case a desert digital camo look. I ended up never having the time to prep and paint the case to achieve the appearance I wanted.
