So true. I figured more people would be itching to test this out on their V3's and post results.

Lots of that done on Anand, not sure what additional you'd need to see?

I'm using 2 2969v3 as separate compute nodes and they outperform my 2690v4's even core-for-core. I was going to put the 2 2696's on a dual board, but I get more out of them in separate systems for software reasons (didn't scale well to a dual socket system).

Anyone know which E5 gives the best single core performance considering which version clocks the highest? As in, V1, V2, or V3?

I just picked up a couple E5-1560 for 75$, and one for 80$
Also the e5-1650v2 I just picked up one for 175$ and 180$ One was a i7-4930k 180$ took my offer,
The spicyQ1650v2 are selling for 130$ now. I should of tried one, but I passed

I picked up 5 new bulk Asus P9x79 WS motherboards for under a grand.
Going to replace my x58 systems. Maybe sell one off, as I think I want to keep my EVGA x58 Classified3 I am not sure yet.
The only real reason for me to do this is I really can use the AVX instruction set that is missing in the x58 x56xx CPUs.
I do find I can overclock with a bit less voltage, been hitting 4.2 to 4.4 around 1.3v
Going higher seems to need a bit more voltage and of corse the temps go up.
I am very happy at 4.3 for sure. It is the AVX that really gives me the boost running BOINC primegrid LLR tasks.
Other BOINC projects are starting to use AVX also, folding to now, but I no longer do CPU folding.

As far as V1 vs V2, I did not see any gains to justify the near 100$ price increase.

Next in my sights maybe a x99 2011-3 board and a V3 xeon

Would I be foolish to pick up a Asus X79 sabertooth and a i7 3960X with 32 GB's of Corsair RAM?

I currently have a X58 Xeon X5660 @ 4.2GHz with a R9 Fury X.

By the numbers, those two CPUs are pretty close together. I'd think the distinguishing feature would have to be something on the motherboard (newer I/O).

I have to assume you are picking up the 3960x very cheaply as you could get a 5930k or a 6800k and get a LOT more processor for your 6 cores.

I gave up on that idea. I just seen the ad yesterday and thought maybe I should get it. I was able to pick up all three: X79 Sabertooth, i7 3960X and 32 GB's of RAM for €600. Seemed ok yesterday but thinking about it more now I could pick up a more modern CPU for similar money. Like a i7 Kaby Lake. But after thinking about it more I am still happy with my X58 system. Plays all my games brilliantly.

Welp, spent another 180can and got 4 more sticks of ram. Guess my 1650 doesn't mind it...
