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.

Oh, that's right.. I forgot that BLCK overclocking also increased those speeds. Yeah, if it's not sustainable it's off the table with it!

So, are you saying that I shouldn't bother with the 2670 if I don't have an X79 board or did you mean that it's not really worth getting either CPU if I don't? I feel like I could go with the 1650 if I find an even better deal on an X79 board. The main goal is definitely finding an upgrade that's worth the money, though.

It's tough because X79 boards used to be pretty common and easy to find in the $100 range, but now that's a rarity. When you could get a board for that price, then pickup a E5 2670 for $50-$60, it's no wonder why so many people went that route.

Since then, E5-1650's have dropped over $100 and are now hovering in the $100-$130 range, but X79 boards are also becoming increasingly more rare and more expensive.

I'd say if you can get a decent X79 board + E5 1650 for ~$250 or so, then it'd be worth, but otherwise it'd be far more easy to pickup a used X99 board and 5820K for not much more.

Sounds good to me, thank you for the info!

The prices increasing was actually what made me feel pressured to hurry up and decide whether or not I should get them, but now it seems that I'm already too late unless they drop again.

I'm still going to keep an eye out for good deals but until then I'm just going to see what Intel is releasing in December and how that'll impact the prices of other CPUs.

@Hexbyte, I got it upto 3.18ghz with bclk 108. I wouldn't run bclk at that speed though. [Rampage 4 BE]
U know, with default bclk (100) u can run those e5 2670 @3ghz...

How do you do that? Is there a multiplier that goes up to 30x?

Nope, just keep turbo on. Done. Single core can do upto 3.3 all core 3ghz

Oh, I wasn't aware that there were different turbo speeds depending on the amount of boosted cores..

Oh well, at this point I think I find the 1650 to be much more interesting in performance as it's unlocked (extra fun, too!) and is more suited for my goals out of the two. Now if someone figures out how to freely "unlock" the 2670, that would be a different story entirely, hehe.

Xeon E5/E7 turbo also depends on the use of AVX.

Is that so? Interesting.. and that's a very cute Koala.. :]

1650 is a 130w 6core processor. 2670 is 115w 8core . 1650 is basically a 3930k?
