That is a sexy build.

When mine has a failed overclock it will attempt to post, I will see C1 the entire time, C3 will never flash and then it will shut right back off after about 3-5 seconds of showing C1. Sometimes you can kick the power switch on the back off after it fails to boot, wait about 5 seconds until the l.e.d.'s near the ram flash back off and then switch it back on and push power and it will boot right up. Maybe that'll be useful to you. Sometimes if you don't shut it off it would do that indefinitely, sometimes it will do that about three times and then boot up after it has gone to the backup BIOS.

Thanks for the advice. I decided to try it again today, and this is what I figured out:

- The power cycle problem was more PSU-related (apparently, the anti-humidity power cycle when there's not much connected to the PSU doesn't seem to be enough to fully power on)
- I tried the CMOS clear trick (couldn't find a jumper), but it still wouldn't work. Any attempts to even change voltage or memory speed led to an overclocking failed message.

Beginning to think this Xeon is a dud...

Geez, of all the things I tried, that did it. Took a few seconds, lol.

Thanks for the compliment! I've put a lot of time in effort (and money, ugh.) into it and I love it! Can't wait to get my X34 Predator monitor!

Glad it worked for you. That monitor makes me jealous lol.

I thought I would have to blow another $100 on a CPU, but then I remembered I'm borrowing a dual-Gulftown virtualization server from my uncle, so I took out one of the processors from it. It just so happened to be another X5670. I put it into the beleaguered system, and the same problem with the RAM shows up.

Well, there goes the CPU is bad theory.

So I thought, why not try some of the RAM that's in the server with the original CPU? System doesn't POST with them (there's 96GB of RAM in the server), so I try the 3 sticks of RAM from my 2500K system...

...SUCCESS!

All three sticks recognized, all 12GB found, even after a three-finger salute reboot.

So it seems the 12GB of RAM I've had in the system from the beginning doesn't seem to want to cooperate with 6-core Xeons...

So with that, can Black Friday come faster? All I need is some new RAM, and I'll be enjoying some 12-threaded goodness.

Before my EVGA board died I found it was the RAM that was mostly holding it back (had an old 1333 stick when I had to abandon to a 1866 stick as I could not get past 170 blk without it).

Have you tried just a single stick vs triple channel?

*edit - Speed testing for single VS dual channel:

Tried every RAM configuration I could think of. Once I swapped the RAM, everything worked out.

I'll jump in on this one for sure. Had my beloved 920 for many years, and scored a X5670 for free out of a decommissioned server that was tossed out.

And a little Inter Burn test porn




I have been trying like crazy to break the 100 GFlop mark, but it's much harder than expected
