Someone should really make an overclocking BIOS for the old Supermicro dual socket boards. They are much more cheap and plentiful than SR2s.

Already at $500. I'm passing on all SR-2's now. Looks like getting one for a realistic price is over. All of the extra money that would be put into the old X58 platform+SR-2 costs would be better spent on a new X99 build.

Every time I mention something in this thread it gets bought and ends up on ebay for 5 times... higher... so all I am saying is X79 Xeons. Do your own research.

Hah, I wish.... what I have my eye on is 1800 in total, its actually a 2011 socket. I'm broke at the moment just finished the recording studio that I mentioned back in a 1-2 page convo we all had on audio about a month back. That set me back about $6k. Finally got it all in and hooked up. Have to get the levels set on the drum mics on my next days off, went with a snare and kick mic and two overheads, that leaves 4 inputs for everything else (8 channel audio interface).

Dude PM me now.

I know the feeling. After my X58 revival [my X58 review topic] the X58 prices just started to shoot up. You could get a SR-2 easily for $300-$450. Now idiots wants more than $1,500.00....lmao. Sabertooth X58 were easily $99 - $150. After my review the Sabertooths shot up to $250 - $800.00. Yes I saw a few going for $800.00 lol. I can only simply laugh at this stuff. I also found it funny how those cheap poor budget X58 builds on Craigslist shot up in price. Well worth their true value.

Whats the word on Windows 10? I have a copy on a spare hard drive but don't really use it. I have it set up for surround so if I want to game in surround I boot into it. I haven't used it enough to really have an opinion on it, it seems alright I guess. With nothing really using DX12 it might be a little early to make too much of an assumption... how many of you have made the switch?

I made the switch. I had to do a little work since MS has so many different ways to send data about you to their servers. Other than the spying\data mining etc, the platform isn't that bad at all actually. Much better than Windows 8\8.1 IMO. DX12 is right around the corner and some of the biggest games of this year is getting DX12 updates [meaning the DX11 games will have DX12 options]. All of my previous programs from Windows 7 work fine with Windows 10 so the upgrade was smooth. Even my music programs work fine just in case you were wondering.

The biggest issue for me on the platform is NOT being able to defer updates for longer than a specific amount of time. You have no choice, but to accept MS updates. So if a buggy OS killer releases tough luck. MS is forcing nearly everyone to upgrade. I think the higher more expensive Win 10 tiers can avoid this [enterprise\servers etc]. Other than those issues the platform is solid.

Yeah, I've made the switch on both systems.

On my main build, I duplicated the W8.1 HD and did the upgrade with "keep nothing" - safe in the knowledge I could go back to W8.1 if I hated it. I now have dual boot - and haven't been back to W8.1.

Main machine is used for encoding and gaming.

On my 2nd setup (the X5675/X58 Sabretooth), I installed W7 and upgraded to W10. No issues, system works very well - not that i'm doing much with it yet!

My only concern is the re-install process. I believe that when you re-install W10 it will activate without issue. I've not tried it yet!

IMO, it's a free legitimate upgrade and it works on the X58 setup. If your coming from W8, it's easy to get to grips with. If your coming from W7 it will take a while longer - but it's worth it

I just have the evaluation insider preview copy, my W7 is enterprise from college 7-8 years back. No free upgrade for me unfortunately.
