2. run an 18 core headless compute node at full-tilt pulling 250W from the wall...

You can also bclk v3's to ~103-105 where the v4s don't like that very much. Doing so, I managed (with the ucode hack) to top the world leaderboard for 18 core Cinebench R15 on a lark. biggrin.gif

Looking at that score, I am pretty sure I can beat it - that was with stock 2133CL15 memory and a pretty low bclk OC.

What is your single core CB R15 score?

I get my 2696 V3 tomorrow, but I don't know if I will have time to play with it.

Thanks

Don't recall and don't have windows on those 2 machines any more. They are headless linux compute nodes.
post #1125 of 1199
That's awesome! I'm probably going to look into getting a v3 when it's time to upgrade again.. :]

A little tease for you guys.

This 2696 V3 is a freaking beast!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice! It is a great little chip. Makes me a little sad how held back the V4's are and V5's will be compared to what I know they can do with cooling outside the 1U/passive-sink thermal design envelope (which is what they target).
post #1128 of 1199
p.s. you should be aware that the ES chips may not/don't work out of the box with the V3.EFI as they have a different CPUID identifier. You may or may not be able to get the ucode hack to work depending on your BIOS and willingness/ability to use a hex editor on it.

My chips are OEM 2696 not ES. so they have a CPUID of 0x0306f2. That's key to the edits and instructions in that thread.
post #1129 of 1199
Just to emphasize what cekim mentioned, this mod only works for 62f (retail stepping). That means production and quality sample chips. In most cases pre-qs chips and some ES2 chips. ES0 or ES1 will not work and that is what is most common on Ebay.

The mod has worked on my QS 2683, pre QS 2695 (best bang for buck if it can be had cheaply), and QS 2696.

Excellent! This is the Xeon abuse we came here for.

Thanks also to @cekim for the clear explanation of the less obvious details of the hack.

@gtz

Can you report the actual power use by the CPU when running 18x33x104 (or whatever it runs @ 18cores)?
