Xeon E3110

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am looking at purcahasing this Proc XEON 3110 and I am told it is equivalent to the E8400. Does anyone have any proof of this and what are the differences between the chips?

+rep for help

It is equivalent to the E8400 except lower voltage range and higher thermal limit. Regarding the thermal limit. It was still on the Intel website but took out recently.

There are several members who own E3110. Hope them provide some inputs.

Well, I'm newb to OC'ing but what are positives/negatives to lower voltage range and a higher thermal limit?

Lower voltage range means that they are a bit more finicky about VCore, but higher thermal limit means that you can run them hotter and hotter for suicide runs!

buy it, I am running one right now on an Asus P5K-Premium at 4.2GHz with 1.4vcore. These are great chips. Just make sure you have the latest bios that supports 45nm chips if you are using a P35 mobo. X38, X48, 780i, and 790i boards should be all set as far as bios goes.

As they are "Xeon" they have better materials. Better Stepp and VID Batch than most of the E8400.

So they are like handpicked E8400 -> more OC on Xeon

Not really. My xeon doesn't overclock all that great (max of 3.7ghz on safe volts) whereas I've seen Q6600's getting higher overclocks than that. Just being a xeon doesn't mean it can overclock more, it just means it can take one heck of a beating heat and voltage wise.

So true...some facts about xeons (my experiences):

fact1-I had an E8400 (Q743A) that would run 4.3GHz with 1.344vcore. P95 stable for 9+ hours and passed all 3D benchies.

fact2- I had an E3110 (Q746A534) that wouldn't run 4.3GHz stable no matter how much vcore you put to it and I tried up to 1.6vcore.

fact3- I currently have another E3110 (same batch as the first one-Q746A534) that requires 1.456vcore to be 4.3GHz P95 stable.

So far, any mention of the Xeons being better as far as lower vcore required is untrue. Do they last longer? Dunno as I ran mine for a couple of years and sold them. Do they run hotter/cooler? Nope. In my water loop all of these recent CPUs have topped out at the same temps (+/- 2degC) when running P95 for 9+ hours. There is a lot of conjecture on all forums as to what makes the xeon different than the standard intel desktop chips. I have used xeons for my gaming and desktop rigs for years. Frankly I can't say that any xeon OCs better than its desktop counterpart. I had Xeon3060s with batch codes L629B and L631B that did not perform any differently than desktop cpus with the same batch codes. All would do 3.71GHz with 1.41vcore. Under phase/dice/ln2 that may be a different story but under good air or water it is the same.

Right now it doesn't matter which one you buy. It does matter what batch/FPO# CPU you buy. That has always been true. And if you are lucky enough to find a Q743A I suggest buying it.
