The W3690 runs extremely hot for me. It was very hard not to load it fully and cool down. The specs temperature threshold is very low compared to the "X".

I might go with either X5680 or X5690.
Compared i7-980x runs at 67.9°C, X5680 runs at 78.5°C, which is awesome and the Xeon supports higher bandwidth.

What clock are you running the memory at? I've heard that the "W" series can't run the memory stable at over 1333MHz, is it true? Is it the same with the "X"?
I'm planning to buy memory soon. Do you know, if the "X" series would support 16GB modules? I really would like to try 4 x 16GB. biggrin.gif

I know that the i7-980x runs 48GB memory on the x58 chipset.

EDIT: My motherboard is P6T7 WS SuperComputer with dual NForce 200. No problems so far. Rock solid.


I bought it from 'savemyserver' in 2015' I would recommend buying from a server outlet type place and avoid private owners at all costs.

I put the W3690 under a custom loop. It does fairly well.. and it was worth it, imo. My X5660 would crash out when hitting 70*c I've seen my W3690 hit the mid 80s and not crash = 88*F ambient running IBT @ 4.5GHz.

It's the Xeon that doesn't support beyond 1333Mhz afaik

I'm constantly fooling around with my overclocking. My kit is an Elpida Hyper kit It does 2000MHz cl8.8.8.21, 60, 2T, 1.65v (needs 1.674v to be stable) but since the kit is in a gaming machine I've been trying to find the highest speed running 1T command rate. Currently working with 1600MHz with the same timings except for the command rate at 1T. If I try 1600MHz with my X5690 it will reset to 1333MHz no matter what. You can overclock it via BCLK, though.

I'm not sure about the memory dimm size support. The largest dimm I've installed was an 8GB stick. It works with both my W & X chips.

Hm, "savemyserver" have only the X5690, no 3000 series. Probably because of the low memory. I will think about it.

Wow, some impressive timing and clock you've got! Do you get the red CPU kill warning at 1.674v? biggrin.gif

Which one would you recommend?

The W3690 was from 'digitalmind2000'

I think all bios' have a warnings like that. I've seen them on mine. That 1.674v reading is from the voltage terminal, with a multi-meter.

I would either buy another W3690 or W3680 if I were to be overclocking it.

I bought mine W3690 from 'digitalmind2000' too thumbsupsmiley.png
The seller is stable thumb.gif

I'm not planning on overclocking. I might go with the X5690 (or X5680) this time. I need more than 24 GB memory. W3690 is listed with 24 GB max, which is a bit confusing for me. Both have 40-bit PAE.

EDIT: But the price of the W3690 is like $100 cheaper sad-smiley-002.gif

Why not just sell off the parts and upgrade?

I was thinking about it. The benefits and improvements of upgrading are not much and not worth it at this point. (At least that's how I see it)
I'd like to wait for the AMD Zen CPUs in few months (October 2016) and see what they have to offer. Prices won't be as expensive as for the Intel. Zen would drive Intel's prices down a bit.

I would get $250 max for my motherboard, CPU and memory. New CPU to support tri and quad GPUs would cost a lot.

The CPU will be $1650 (Intel Core i7-6950X) or $1100 (Intel Core i7-6900K).

Why would I upgrade anyway, if it does the same benchmark as "W" and "X" series? I wouldn't buy lower model CPU for the 2011 or Z170 chipsets, so CPU will be expensive.

As for Motherboard, I like the ASUS WS motherboard series.

Motherboard $540 (ASUS X99-E WS). I like workstation motherboards, because I can attach many PCI devices and it's stable when rendering 3D (Photoshop, Blender, DAZ 3D).

The new CPU would be a bit faster, but that's due to the extra 2-4 cores for the Intel Core i7-6900K or Intel Core i7-6950X. Can't think about the new Xeons, because the prices are insane.

The DDR4 memory latency isn't much better than the DDR3.

I don't get excited about SSDs too much, mine right now on the X58 platform does Read at 247.6 MB/s and Write at 246.9 MB/s. That's more than enough for what I need it for.

Memory is so much more important for me. Especially when AMD released their own RAMDisk. It's a performance game changer! I was using SoftPerfect's RAMDisk, which was doing excellent job too, but the AMDs soft has more features and it's more stable.

So I decided to wait for the next gen(s). It's cheaper to get latest "X" or "W" for my system and more memory. 32 GB (4 x 8GB) starts at $130; 48GB would cost not more than (between) $220 - $250.
So CPU (X5690) + 48GB Memory would set me at $400 - $450.
