Xeon Hacking and Overclocking X79/X99 [Beyond X58] - Page 28

post #271 of 1557
Thread Starter 
Word up.

Due to a further change of circumstances I am again going to have to wait longer until I can afford an x79 board, but Mr486 there knows this and is trolling. tongue.gif

I woke up to see this on slashdot:

https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/16/06/15/1835227/intel-x86s-hide-another-cpu-that-can-take-over-your-machine----you-cant-audit-it

Looks to me [very limited time, I have 4 language exams later today] like this is the same mechanism that controls turbo/TDP limits etc? Maybe if the community gets it's knickers sufficiently in a twist about this we'll see some decomposition of the IME and may gain access to overriding the limitations we're facing with the multipliers as I hoped smile.gif

Hehe, it was quite a task to find an x79 ~ I love my friend the OP very dearly but I've already spared him some tech parts in the past.

That said, the workstation 'WS' version of the P9X79 would make a superb pairing for any those chips; so I'll quietly keep an eye out for one on his behalf.

For the Xeon chips the Go to should be the E5-1660 SB-e it's a beast and unlocked. Fleabay has them pretty cheap. Now the real dream chip for X79 is the E5-1680V2 IB-E that's 8cores and unlocked Multi a true Beast.

Sorry to go off-topic here, but that X5680 in your sig, just... ohno-smiley02.gif

Would you consider putting it through a Firestrike run and posting the result? I'd love to know how the 3DMark physics score...

I would love to But as of right now those chips and the SR2 are in another owners hands at this time. Still boxed up waiting on me to buy them back lol.

Hey no worries. Just curious, to obtain that HWBot score, does it need to stay stable or just peak at that speed for a short time?

Can you game at 6ghz?
post #277 of 1557
NO not a chance of gaming at it. However I did game on it at 5.4ghz to be funny. But of course trying to game and pour LN2 is just hard. thumb.gifthumb.gif
post #278 of 1557
Yeah I figured that might be the case, somebody needs to design an LN2 pump and tank biggrin.gif Kudos on the score though, man.
post #279 of 1557
Thanks.

Has anyone got a e5-1680/V2 in their system?
I miss my e5-1650 @4.2+ dearly
