so i picked up a E5-2690v3 ES chip EBAY LINK TO SAME SELLER/CHIP
, runs at 2.4-2.7ghz and really it has been pretty good. I have a 5930 i bought a Fry's a few weeks ago I may return (i needed a 40 lane CPU) so I sold my 5920k.
Setup: Asus x99-deluxe, 16gb 2133 ddr4, and 2xGTX980's SLI with a very mild 10%oc on mem and cores. The 5930 was OC'ed to 4.3ghz. and the Xeon was running a 103 FSB
some benches: (5930k vs. 2690-v3 ES)
Firestrike Extreme: 11410 vs 9085
Cinebench R15: 1242 vs 1624
Cinebench R15 single core: 166 vs 93
Cinebench R15 OpenGL: 138.30 vs 119.19
Now the only issue I have currently is this:
I play BF4 and I run about 135-145 FPS at 1440p ULTRA settings i know the 980s can handle this fps and settings as they did with the 5820k using only PCIe x16 at 8x, now they run x16. It will run smooth about 90%, now for no ryme or reason it will drop to about 50, i have been monitoring the system and one core does sit at about 90% utilization with another 3/4 running about 80%, but the times it happens are not consistent, do you all think i have a voltage/core issue? or is there something funky going on with the CPU management by windows?
