For Sale:
Xeon X5680 (pair), Supermicro X8DTH-i

Will Ship To: US48

Have some server stuff for sale here. If you're interested in something please take a look at my other threads in case there are multiple items you want to purchase. I might be able to lower the cost of shipping if this is the case.
Quote:
Payment Rules
1. I only accept payment via Paypal unless you happen to be local to Las Vegas, in which case cash is fine.

2. I will only ship to a confirmed address in Paypal. No exceptions.

3. I will always require a signature upon delivery, regardless of how small or inexpensive the package may be, and regardless of the carrier chosen. I understand this may be inconvenient for some people and I apologize up front for it, however there will be no exceptions.

4. In general I will use flat rate USPS boxes for shipping wherever possible. In such instances where something won't fit in such a box (ex. motherboards) I will probably use Fedex over UPS. If you have an issue with Fedex at your location let me know and I can probably use UPS instead.

5. All packages will carry insurance at an amount to meet or exceed my original purchase price. For items marked "shipping included" insurance is included in the listed price.

6. If you want to purchase more than one thing from me I will see what I can do to combine everything in one box at a lower price. However, please do not expect a discount simply because you're buying a lot of stuff! I base most of my prices at lower than the typical 'completed listing' at eBay, so they're usually pretty well priced.

7. That said, if you think the asking price is too high please be polite and, if possible, provide a reference for a lower price.

8. There will be no returns on anything. Everything I sell works as it is intended to and frankly if it doesn't work that's on you.

1. 2x Xeon X5680 6 core/12 thread processors - $300 Shipped to US48 (FIRM)

I will only sell these processors separately if I have two buyers, and will only ship after BOTH buyers have paid. Also, they'll be $160 shipped apiece (FIRM).

2. Supermicro X8DTH-i - $150 Shipped to US48

Purchased this brand new back in January. Seemed to work fine for me with the above processors. Be aware that it is a finicky board (I mean, it's a server board after all) so please be prepare to fuss with it a bit before you get it working. Potentially a great board for running multiple GPUs for folding or mining. I never ran it like that so do some research before buying if that is your intent. If I recall correctly - and I might not be correct - each of the x16 slots runs at x8. This board comes with the original box and all original accessories, plus I'm throwing in a small USB3.0 card. Please be aware this is an E-ATX sized board with a couple mounting holes that aren't quite standard. I think there is one screw I can't use in my Fractal Design Define XL, but otherwise it mounts just fine.

3. Supermicro X8DAL-i with 2x E5520 4 core/8 thread processors - SOLD

Purchased these together a while back. One of the few dual processor ATX-sized boards available. Great starter server board too, you can always upgrade the processors to hex core units later on if you want the extra oomph. This will come with the original IO shield, board layout sheet, and a printed manual. This does NOT come with the original box, however it will be shipped in a box designed for an ATX motherboard.

Note: I have four passive server heatsinks available. If you're putting these into a 1U/2U case they may be useful, but otherwise they are extremely ineffective. If you are interested in a pair please let me know.

I have X5680's on my SR2, if they're retail they should work no problem. I have a conservative OC at 4.0, super stable. Highly recommended hehe!

We're trying to come up with something. smile.gif

Out of curiosity, you say your overclock is conservative - how far did you ever push them? I only used them in a server board, so I never got to have any fun. frown.gif

Hmmmm I don't think I pushed them beyond that. I came from a "bad experience" with my previous L5640's which overclocked intially from 2.26 stock to 3.2, but as time (years) passed I had too much problems and in the end I had sudden shutdowns everyday several times, I had to run them at stock clock to have less shutdowns.

Stupidly it turned out to be a PSU problem... anyway, I didn't want to push my luck with the X5680s, I had seen some X5680's @4.2 online so when I got the 4.0 stable I just stayed there because I craved the damn stability I had lacked for months haha, extra 200Mhz wasn't worth the effort.


BTW I'm interested in putting those good old L5640's to use, but I want a mobo that doesn't need any damn special/propietary PSU connectors. Do your mobos work with standard ATX 2.0 PSUs?

Mmmm...4.2 GHz. Suppose sourcing an SR-2 would be a bit cheaper than getting the Asus Z10PE-D8 I've been eyeing...

I actually still use a pair of L5640s in another board, and they've also sat in both of these motherboards as well with nary a problem. I have used three PSUs with them over the last six months, all should be ATX 2.0 compliant:

Seasonic Snow Silent 1050
Corsair AX750
Seasonic SSR-650M

Each of these boards only require a 24pin and 2x 8-pin EPS connectors to run. Nothing proprietary here. smile.gif

A Z10 with some V3's will blow the SR2 out of the water, but yeah a SR2 would be cheaper. There are a couple of used ones on ebay BTW.

To give you an idea, I have a Z9 with a couple of 2670's stock 2.6Ghz, gives me 1991 points in cinebench 15, the X5680s give me 1714. A clock*cores comparison gives me an efficiency boost of 35%! I mean 1 core @ 1 Ghz is 35% faster on Sandy Bridge than Westmere. Xeon V3 are two generations above Sandy Bridge, at LEAST 20% faster

Xeon V3's are very expensive, Xeon V1's like the 2670 (8 cores) are super cheap ($60 non ES), even the 2670 V2 (10 cores) are at good price (ES though, $160), but I haven't seen an affordable V3 (**News; $200 for an ES, $1200 for non-ES). The 2670 V3 has 12 cores! 50% more cores than the V1 and 20% more efficient at least, 12% lower clock though, but I bet it's at least 60% faster than the 2670 V1s... dang!

Then get a Z9 with some sweet 2670 V2 or go all deep with Z10 and 2670 V3.... you won't have to worry about time because they won't OC biggrin.gif. We just have to confirm if the ES V3 work in the Z10
