post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok so i have a chance to snag an intel xeon x5687 CPU for cheap im talking 50$ and i need to know if the multiplier on this cpu is locked or unlocked? reason im asking is my mobo/bios doesnt allow me to adjust the BLCK of the cpu so i can only increase or decrease the multiplier is this cpu unlocked

It should be a locked multiplier, but unlocked bclk if the motherboard supports it. Westmere clocks stupidly high - 200MHz, up from 133MHz, is feasible - so you should get some nice speeds out of it.

Actually, I don't think LGA-1366 has an unlocked multiplier at all. What socket does your system use?

EDIT: Just kidding, I'm an idiot. Some of the i7s have unlocked multipliers. However, assuming you need ECC or any fancy workstationy features, they won't necessarily be supported.
