doublecheck the clockspeeds with cpu-z while running R15, i think you got retail equivalent samples.

I really really doubt that it could perform that good @2.8

Says 2800MHz in HWinfo all the way through the test. Just reran it.

Weird! Thanks for the info though, it is almost impossible to find info like this for ES chips.
I might pick one up after all.

For my Main i might go dual E5-2690 v2 late ES though. 2 less cores, higher clockspeed, about the same CB R15 performance.

Hey guys, long time lurker of this thread here!

For a long time I've been wondering if I should pick up a Xeon e5-2670 since they were so cheap, but the required motherboards are a lot more expensive and it seems no one has figured out if they are unlockable yet.

Now it seems the prices are slowly rising(?). I think they used to be around €60 and now the cheapest I can find is €80 from China which is making me think that I should hurry up and decide before they get even more expensive. I might be able to get a used MSI Big Bang XPower II for €175 but it still seems a tad too expensive for my tastes.

Basically what I want to do is to get it up to at least 3,2 GHz through BLCK OCing as that's what my current CPU is at but here's what's stopping me, mostly: I wonder if the performance upgrade is really worth the cost. I'd be down by about ~€255 for the CPU and the MOBO.

I mostly do gaming but I might get into more intensive stuff in the future. I feel as if my 1090T is really running up against a brick wall with a lot of things so I was wondering how a slightly overclocked 2670 would do compared to my CPU in gaming?

I can't OC my CPU anymore because my current MOBO is a worn out used one that I got for cheap because I fried the previous one by using Prime95 T_T

So what do you think about the price and could anyone (preferably with a GPU similar to my HD 7950) show me some benchmarks? The synthetic ones are fun to look at but I really need some more gaming FPS numbers. Here's my Steam library list so we might be able to compare the same games. Unigine Heaven/Valley would also work for me!

Or do you think I'm better off going with another setup? There's not really a mid-high end CPU I'm really looking forward to at the moment.. Perhaps something that's unlockable with a bit of tinkering and that's also decently priced?

From my experience most E5-2670s don't handle overclocking well at all. You can bump up the BCLK to about 102 MHz before you blue-screen. I've heard it's the E5-1600 series that have the unlocked multipliers but they've never been cheap. The best use for them would be some sort of HPC application, heavy virtualization, or rendering.

I've had a really hard time finding a cheapish socket-2011 motherboard as well and ended up getting a gutted Dell workstation from my work for free. If you know your company's IT department they might be worth bugging.

For gaming I would thing an E5-2670 would perform as well as an underclocked sandybridge-e 6-core CPU. Games can't use the additional threads so you don't get the benefit of more cores or hyperthreading.

Hmm.. I read that someone here got it up to 3,2 GHz if I was not mistaken. And in a review I read on the MSI Big Bang XPower II they were talking about being on 127,5 MHz. Maybe I was getting my hopes up.. I was thinking that was really high but I figured if multiple people were able to do it it might not be so crazy tongue.gif

Maybe I'm better off with a different socket/CPU combo but for some reason I just really want to try an Intel 8 core because they're normally quite hard to get. Even though I know that most games only use a few cores if you're lucky, I just want it for the fun of it I guess? Hehe..

I am seeing e5-1650 xeons for 123usd and the E5-2650 and 2660 are selling a bit cheaper than the 2670s 50USD or around there on ebay.
Someone on here got a xx70 up to 109 bclk or so.

The e5-1650 are 6/12 corethread and are fully unlocked and overclock real well. For 123$ can't go wrong.
I have a few dual socket 2011 with 2670, you can get a dual socket board and two 2670 with 64gb memory for 350$ or so.
That is one option.

It certainly looks interesting, this is basically the 6-core little brother of the 2670 from a generation before it, isn't it? The fact that it's fully unlocked does make it an attractive option, although I'm not sure how I feel about getting even older hardware at this point (I'm honestly not sure how much of a difference it would make). Although the extra price is really bugging me at this point, I don't have too much to spend, I'm afraid. :/

It's starting to cross the line of money I can spend without being a questionable purchase, which the e5-2670 is probably also a part of right now. I need to be a 100% sure that's it's not only fun to play around with but also a worthwhile upgrade for at least 2 years. Which it is if there's nothing better in the same/lower price range.. Hmm, making decisions is hard.

Oh well, talking and thinking about it alone is fun already..!

I wouldn't bother with the E5-2670 if you're trying to OC with BCLK overclocking, while it works with SB/IB, should not be a 24/7 solution because of how BCLK is linked to various busses such as PCI-E and SATA, among others. You run the risk of issues like data corruption.

I'd just grab an E5-1650 if you're looking to OC. The multitasking performance is going to be on par/better anyway after overclocking is concerned, but also will bring much higher single core performance as well.

If you just want the 2670 for messing around with, then all means, but unless you already have an X79 board, I don't see it's worth.
