They are great, but they make some "clic" noise under 500RPM, it's a little bit anoying but I regulate them on 550/600 in idle to 1300RPM full (silent mode). Outside that, they are off course really impressive. i'm checking out my "new" rig with a xeon on x58A-OC from gigabyte. In this configuration (4.2/3200uncore/1600RAM/1.35V), for the moment, i got 76/77° max with Prime95 full. i'm considering replacing thermal paste...

I expected less than 72c for that config...yeah, try IC Diamond out. I use that tim for regular applications...

In fact, I got the mobo since last saturday and the xeon since last week too. I'm trying to find some best compromise for an H24 workstation use, with 6x8Go=48Go. It's very difficult to have a rockstable system with so much RAM @1600 (in fact, normally on x58, it's 6x4=24Go max, but it can handle the 8Gb stick).

For now, I got another BIOS configuration with 4.2/3000Uncore/1200RAM wich is rockstable and 72/73° max after a Prime95 night. The Uncore for 1600RAM @3200 need some Vcpu and Vqpi more... and strangely, the perf are equally good @ 1200 ... I probably will stay with that conf...

I really like the x58 plateform, and the westmere architecture is just impressive with CAD / 3D & Video editing. But the mobo is just huge impressive, I boot @ 4.6 easily ... smile.gif

But I will check the IC diamond to see. For the moment I use the chill factor from ThermalRight

Clean out computer and blow out the heatsink. Put everything back together. Turn on computer, fireup P95 and start looking at the temps with slight disbelief. Did the pc boot at default clockspeeds by accident or is my computer screwing with me biggrin.gif

Did you miss the class about how computers have gremlins in them? Little buggers love nothing better than tricking you into doubting your own sanity. biggrin.gif

got this x5660 for 250Euros (around 320$) biggrin.gif I would prefer find a 990x for the same price, but this one rocks enough for me at this time.

I think that It's a little bit strange for a workstation to have a mobo like this, but it's a wonderful base for a reliable machine even @ 4.2. I would like to bump to 4.4 to kill 3970X @stock biggrin.gif
