Can you go to the boards manufacturer and DL the boards manual and read it, see if it says you can raise the BCLK.
Not too many seem to buy that board, I would think there is a reason for that.

Check your local Craigslist for motherboards.
I picked up an EVGA FTW3 for 60$ and I have seen a couple Sabertooths sell for 100-125$.
I missed an EVGA SR-2 with 2 hexcores and a 1200W PSU and 24gb memory and case for 600$ Missed it by just a few hours too.

I found on e-bay an Asus Rampage3 for 100$ just listed as Rampage3, So don't just look for x58 or lga 1366 boards.

welp. it's 2015, and i'm still using my x58 every day lol.

i have to say, this is honestly the longest i have ever gone without upgrading to a newer platform. at this pace, this might be the very last computer i built. there still aren't any games that i can think of its cpu intensive enough to make my xeon a bottleneck.

its quite amazing how after 6 years the x58 is still putting up a good fight,

I honestly can't believe that my PC will be 5 in February. Feels like it was just yesterday that I spent like 1500 bucks on a 920, P6T and a 5870. Time sure flies...smile.gif

It doesn't mention BCLK at all. I'll check Craigslist, I didn't think of that.

Is there any reviews with modern games (the ones that do use 6 threads) showing difference between HT on and off for our xeons?

I've seen stated somewhere that our HT isn't as good as later generations and therefore logical threads may bottleneck games.

Quick question: Will any of the non-listed Xeon CPUs, like E5530, E5540, or the ones from 56XX series work on my ASRock X58 Extreme mobo?

Here`s the official CPU support list from the manufacturer:

Thanks!

Wow, such an amazing overclock!
Wow and all that needed was 1.352v?

Also, how is the GTX 970 with the Xeon? They must be a beast combo! biggrin.gif

Its great actually, better than the R9 290X, I tested both and the R9 is glitching once in a while... wink.gif

Congrats on the OS X install on the Z600 bud!!! still 9 hours of well worth it learning if you ask me... smile.gif Its not wasted see it like that, I don't consider the knowledge gained installing OS X on a hackintosh something quite easy especially on a computer that has dual socket and a bunch of unsupported hardware that you have to search, download and patch and install kexts to make it work fine thumb.gif
