So now I've got 3 Xeon's I haven't tried my low-power 8 core yet though. The system the 1650 will be going in will be on 24/7 it'll mostly be doing 1080/60-4K recording, video converting and maybe file compression for my server/NAS so it'll get some decent use. Might have to replace my air cooler though at some point

Good deal on the CPU. I think 1650v2 (same as 4930K) is the affordable little gem no one knows about.

And this being the 21th century, you'll get another job in time. For now, your toys will tide you over and cheer you up.

First question, why do you want/need ECC? It gives you nothing for gaming and can in fact hurt performance.

Second question, Why are you looking to replace your 920? It is a pretty good gaming chip as is, for the era at least. There will be little to gain from a Xeon aside from lower voltage and possibly higher OC. If it is just for the fun of it, then have at it. But if you are trying to solve a specific issue, we need a bit more info on your usage aside from "gaming."

I ve learned from what I have read ecc cheaper thats why.

not tryin to solve any specific porblem.I dont want to build new system I want to upgrade what I have and x58 can be upgraded to xeon.they are really cheap on aliexpress.
so maybe I get a chip equal to 990x ?wouldnt be better to get a cpu which has higher baseclock ? less power consumption would be nice too

I don't know why you immediately shot down another member who posted in the Xeon club for wishing to buy a Xeon?

The difference between a 920 and an X5600 or W3600 xeon is night and day in performance, this is Nehalem vs Westmere(The IPC improvement alone is nice, the die shrink is nice, and it runs a bit cooler). plus The xeons are dirt cheap now

If you want a chip equivalent to a 990X you need a W3690 to have the unlocked multiplier or an X5690 if you can live with a locked multiplier. ECC is cheaper only sometimes, you can only use unregistered ECC(expensive), or Unregistered Non ECC(U and E dimms, you cannot use R dimms) I suggest against ECC if you game on that rig and plan to OC it.

I run an X5670 with a baseclock of 200 and multi at 22 with c-states and speedstep on, needs only 1.33 core volts and the qpi core is also at 1.3 iirc, ram is at 1600mhz with 9-9-9-24-1t timings. Running a corsair 24gb kit.

Your call what you will do, but i'd get an x5670 and overclock it or and x5675 or something, X5690's and W3690's are still around 70-80$

All well documented over in the X58 Xeon thread https://www.overclock.net/forum/8-in...xeon-club.html

Maybe I came across wrong. I was not trying to shoot him down. I was just trying to feel him out and get more info to better help him with picking a part. Just trying to make sure he gets something worth getting. I guess I could have tried wording it differently. Nothing negative was intended.

With his setup, any X5600 CPU from the X5650+ will be a major improvement if he overclocks it. Any chip not an X5690 or X5680 or W3690 or W3680 is cheap too
