Tough call, but if they didn't advertise it as damaged then either they lied, or it was damaged during transit?

here is a shot of a E5620 (ES) sample i have on hand here. it defintely looks like an SMD was damaged on yours.


VS


EDIT: also try looking in the packaging it came with and see if the piece is laying around in there

Edit#2 : the guy below says his worked with one missing.

See this thread about a similar issue same cpu socket type

This was his description:
This Intel Xeon E5649 2.53GHz / 12M / 5.86/ LGA1366 Six-Core CPU Processor was tested and is in good working condition. Unit is also in good physical condition, with just some remaining thermal paste on the unit. CPU Comes as pictured and does not include any additional items or accessories.

I'll ask for a return :\

Ask him to explain the scaring on the chip

Good luck! I wonder if he included pictures of the damage in the auction. The thermal paste on the bottom isn't a big deal for cleaning. It is most likely non conductive as well. Hope it goes well for you.

Seems like they stacked the cpus on top of dirty ones

Edit- can see more clearly in this picture:


Aww dude, I'm sorry that the chip is not in good condition

Just got a SM X8DAL-i mobo and two X5675's. Wondering what the possibilities of overclocking these on this board are. They'll be water cooled.

I was under the impression Supermicro has never had any overclocking feature whatsoever. That said it may be possible there is hard mods/bios/software hack mods for it? I would be surprised if you even had a bclk option.

I'm finding that out. Wish somebody would donate a SR-2. tongue.gif

At this point it would take someone to "donate" a SR-2. I considered the SR-2 about 3 years ago before the prices jumped to unrealistic prices. So many years after the Xeon + X58 performance increase the next upgrade is normally going to be hardware that will follow to a newer platform or upgrading to a newer platform altogether. That's not to say that the X58 still isn't viable and that it won't be viable past 2017-2018+.

Is the sr2 that bad value? I mean you can get one for around 400 to 500 dollars, add to that two cheap 6 cores that's another 100 dollars, what system can give you the same level of performance for 600 dollars? Something I'd consider if I was into video rendering or something .
