Xeon L5639 vs i7 920

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys can you give advise for the Xeon L5639, will be an upgrade from a 920 at 3.8 or no ??
post #2 of 6
um YES!

It runs cooler, has 2 extra cores, 4 more threads, and you can easily get it up to 3.8 on the L5639.

I would suggest going for the X5650/X5660 unless you need the lower TDP, as these have a higher multiplier and are easier to overclock.

Yes, that would just be a 215 BCLK on the x18 multiplier =3870mhz or 3.87 Ghz.

Currently I am running at 4.29Ghz on my x5650, 195x22, that is when one or two cores are loaded, when all 6 are loaded the multiplier drops to 20.

Im not sure what the turbo multis are on the L5639, but I have seen a few people have success at overclocking the chips.

Head over to the X58 xeon club, and the x5660 thread for much more info, theres a link for the L5639 thread as well, but theyre all by the same guy.

No worries, and go for the x5650, I almost bought an L5639, and I am glad I did it, because breaking the 4ghz barrier is harder on that chip with the lower multi. thumb.gif
