Going from i7 920 to Skylake. Is it worth it? - Page 11

post #101 of 129
Hi,

the people in many forums posted tha the particular mobo (Gene II) is working with 6core xeons. But I wanna ask, if I add Xeon there, Must do I have ECC ram only or ordinary are fine as well? Have not checked this actually, though normal Rams are ok, just no ECC function. Thanks for answer

Yes a Xeon will work with regular ram but sort of defeats the purpose of a xeon. The are built for Mission Critical stability not kiddie gaming nor were they built for the additive types that like to say the words "I overclock" or "I have the Black Edition"

But yes it should work.

Taking a system and pushing it beyond its designed intention is actually specifically why this forum was created.

Maybe your in the wrong forum? lol

We have saying here: "more stripes, more Adidas". That is for Xeon threads. Also the power consumption and heat creation is another motivation to get that. I like the vintage stuff a bit too, so X58 chipset suites that, while providing sufficient power for music recording, digital painting and gaming for me. :-)

Really should just consider buying a 2500k system, you can get a 2500k and z68/77 mobo for ~$180 these days. I'd rather 4 cores 4 threads of sandy bridge at 4.5 ghz instead of a 6 core 12 thread of gulftown

As I said before, in EU it is not easy to find Sandy++++ for low price. Got good deal with Rampage Gene II X58 and i7 920 - not overcloced by user. With 8GB ram also and very very good price. Newer architecture system used would be like 1/2 more.

Also, cheap X5650 on the way and then 920 will go to world I guess. In apps, I am very happy even with this. It is very big boost to my last higly OCed q6600 anyway. And I do not see particular slowdown compared to highly clocked 4770k. Not saying it is not there in some scenarios. USB3 or SATA 3.0 is not a problem. I already have sata III card to PCI-e slot, but have not installed it as I thnink it might not have TRIM, if I would want to squeeze from my SSDs most.

The only thing that concerns me is a cooling if there will be concept of NH-C14S ot NH-U9S. Already having Vendetta 2 and some no name smaller twin tower coller but for the board cooling... but that is probably for another thread.

One the better bang for the buck systems you have. Nice job!

a x56xx will outperform the i5 SB either on MT or ST (match with a slighly oc to 990x clocks)

MT yes, ST no (not unless you OC one but not the other for some reason)
