Apparently a rev 1.2 is pictured, but that's the link I get from my order history.

I did a lot of research when I was getting my eVGA x58 FTW3. What I remember is that a rev 1.2 of your board will work, but not 1.0 or 1.1. You can send it into eVGA and they will mod it fore $50, or you can try it yourself. here are some links for some additional info:

Thank you. I'll have to see about doing it myself. Adding an extra $50 onto the costs of my upgrades is making it not such a cheap upgrade.

What kind of gaming performance boost should I expect coming from an i7-920?

With DX12 or Vulcan, I would say a decent amount.

Here's a 4K benchmark comparison (maybe some minor differences in the graphics driver settings):

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7490831 to http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7332322

The GPU clocks are a bit different in this 2560x1440 comparison:

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7491750 to http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7332657

I put more effort into the X5680 OC. I only spent a day on the 920.

Edit: Replaced the second one of the 920 benchmarks with a slightly better one.

Ambient was low that day.

The hard part was actually getting it, 9 SATA devices and a USB 3.0/SATA III card into a GD05 mATX HTPC case for portability.

I posted a few pics in the Silverstone Grandia GD0x Owners Club thread.

Hi,

i got my hands on an Asus Rampage III.

Is there any bios available that offers a vcore offset option?
Manual says is should be available but other forums told that the option was never implemented? I flashed official 1402 1502 and 1601 ZioMod but nothing there.

I am pretty sad cause even my old REII Gene and the P6X58D-e offered this option, so anyone that knows a mod-bios that is reliable and implements that ?

thanks for your help

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and about to join the X58 - Xeon club!

My computer is getting long in the tooth and I wanted to upgrade it without having to do an entire rebuild. After some research I stumbled across people putting these Xeon CPU's in their X58 Mobo's with significant success. i quickly decided this would be the route I will take!

I'm reasonably competent but no expert, so am going to probably need some guidance when it comes to overclocking etc. Hopefully I will find the help here. I'm going to be upgrading the CPU, GPU and RAM, it won't be for maybe a couple of months yet until I get the cash together but thought I would get started with a few questions, so here goes!

Current setup

Asus Rampage II Extreme
i7 920 @ 3.4 GHz
6Gb Dominator GT
3 x GTX 285
Fully Watercooled


Upgrades

CPU - Just purchased an X5675 from Ebay. I don't want to go too crazy with the overclock. I'm hoping to get around 4GHz or so and max temps of ~70c. My tower is now housed in a homemade entertainment unit, so it sits in a cubbyhole basically. There's about a 5inch gap all around the tower with an open front. My current system runs on average around 5c hotter at max usage in this space as opposed to being free standing in the open. It's quite significant but still within safe temps given the water cooling. I can run the i7 @ 3.8GHz but temps are running a little high for 24/7 use. It's one of the first off the production line and not the best over clocker. Do we think my Xeon targets are realistic?

GPU - I'm looking at either a 970 OC or a 980 Ti. I would prefer the 980 Ti as I would like to get some longevity out of it. Do we think the combination of CPU plus PCIe 2 might be a bottleneck for it though and not worth it?

RAM - Going for 12Gb of 1600MHz DDR3 Triple Channel. I've seen two kits, one at 1.65v and the other at 1.5v. Which would be the best to go for. I have read somewhere that some X58 boards don't like the lower voltage stuff?

Bios - I need to update to the latest Bios before I start. Are there any modded ones that are needed / preferable?

Software - What software do I need to fully bench the system once completed?


Thanks!

Welcome!

4GHz under 70C should be pretty easy.

Which RAM kits were planning on using? Normally I go for the lower voltage RAM of the same frequency, so there's some overhead to increase the voltage if needed. Depends on the timings though.

Either Corsair Vengeance 1.5v or Dominator 1.65v.

Yeah hopefully I should get those clocks and temps, I will have 2 less GPU's in the loop which will help. I might even be able to push for 4.2GHz, we shall see. I don't really want to go any higher than that though (unless it's comfortably achievable). My i7 runs with a 200 base clock so hopefully the Xeon will do the same.
