2990WX don't need restart any more, also you should check der8auer review and see that this CPU can have mounting problem and you loose memory channels in each try.
From Anand review:
Speaking with Intel before this review, they gave us two numbers of ‘power limits’. Intel defines two power limits for this processor: the PL1 or ‘sustained’ power limit, at 255W, and a PL2 or ‘turbo’ power limit at 510W. Normally Intel sets the PL2 at only 25% higher, but this time around, it’s a full 100% higher. Ouch.
ALso this is overclockble Xeon and with OC you get over 70DB with it massive AIO and Delta fans, good luck working next to it for hours every day, It's just not particle product!
