Had a longer post, but the time out monster ate it.

It's the mobo from my old main computer which back then sported an E6450, 4x1GB RAM and a 8800GTS 320MB.

After watching some Youtube, I brought it back up from the basement.
Upgraded to an X5460 after I found a modded BIOS online, 4x2GB sticks and a 780Ti GHz Edition on used deals, and then I might've gone a bit overboard.
New PSU, AIO, case, SSD, fans, cable extensions...
Tho it's a pretty sweet machine. It runs perfectly at 4GHz. I've had it working really well at 4.2GHz. CPU temps are fine, but the mobo components starts to ramp up in temp, so I keep it at "only" 4GHz.
I'd say a 780Ti (or 970) is about the limit to what is reasonable to pair it with. I've played a lot of Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Rise/Shadow of the Tomb Raider on it, and it's actually a pretty decent experience after tweaking the correct settings. Compared to a GTX680, they run soooo much smoother with the 780Ti.

At peak enthusiasm, I also picked up a used kit with a QX9650 with a decent Thermaltake aircooler, a P5E-Deluxe, BIOS modded to Rampage Formula and 8GB RAM. It's been collecting dust for a while, but now it's up with some spare parts, in a shiny new NZXT H500.
It's currently running at 4.15GHz, 10x415, 1.425V, which seems to be the most I can squeeze out of the CPU, so I'm working on memory timings now. I'm hitting 450 in CB R15 with it.
Sadly I only have the 8800GTS for now, but to my surprise it can run Tomb Raider 2013 and Outlast (from late 2013) really well at 720p. Hopefully I can pick up a used RX570 or similar for it

I'll report back on it, and kick some life into this thread again

I hope you get a good one I wouldn't hold my breath for 4.5GHz with conventional cooling, but who knows?
With a better motherboard than the IP35-E I guess I could try to push the X5460 beyond 4.2. I'd love to find an IP35-Pro, but they seem pretty rare in Sweden.

I’m on water cooling, so temps and voltage isn’t too much of an issue, once I get a northbridge fan for the 790i fsb clocks shouldn’t be too hard to get.

Nice! A couple of good exhaust fans make decent difference too, in my experience.

Got the QX6950 up to 4.2GHz with 1.44+ Volts. Seems stable, and doesn't produce too much hot air. Tho it's clear the voltage will have to increase pretty dramatically if I want to go further now. Tried to tune the RAM timings aswell, but anything below 5-5-5-15 and it wont even boot.
Still pretty nice. I haven't seen too many people reaching 4.2GHz (not that I've dug around much)

Waiting for a plain white led strip, then I'll get some photos of this beast

I managed to get my RAM up to 1800MHz (9-10-9-27) but DDR3 not DDR2 and the northbridge just burns up so I have to settle on 1600 (9-9-9-24)

I put a 1060 6GB in with the QX6950 yesterday, and tried some Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
Instinct says to go with 1080p, but then the GPU is totally bottlenecked by the CPU, so I went 1440p.
It actually plays really well without really compromising on the settings. Sure, low shadows, and low Level of Detail as they seem to be the most taxing for the CPU, but other than that it's Ultra textures, TAA, 16x AF, SBAO and all that. Looks great.
Framerates keep between 30 and 45 (same as at 1080p), CPU is pretty much pinned at 100%, but it's still smooth and very playable. There's an occational stutter when driving or flying, but that happens on my main rig aswell (8700k, 1070ti). It does get hot tho. Might prove handy come winter..


No surprises here really as this is pretty much the same story as with the X5460/780Ti.

I thought about getting a GTX 1060 6GB for the system, I had a 1070 in it for a while before I ended up just giving it to the wife seeing as it would just pair better with her 2600X than with a QX9650, I keep swapping back and forth between her previous R9 380 and my old 290X that was in my Z97 rig before I jumped to the GTX 1080. I want to keep the 290X in there but the VRM’s just get so hot, so I can’t really do anything until I figure out some way to cool it a bit better.

You also might want to consider getting a 790i board, they are a bit pricey but it’s a really good investment especially if you want to clock high and have high RAM clocks, downside would be you’d need to throw some DDR3 in there but if you wanted to stay DDR2 I think the 780i is DDR2 and pretty much the same board. DDR3 only pulls ever so slightly ahead when running a high fsb, other than that the performance is roughly the same +/- a few %.

Upgraded the QX9650 to a Xeon X5470 and its running a lot better than the QX9650 ever did, also threw the GTX 1080 in there for fun and its going pretty well so far, waiting on my new 750W psu to come in the mail tomorrow so I can shoot for a higher overclock, but 4.1GHz so far seems like its running strong.

Edit: got it running 4.35GHz stable with one jump in voltage.

Q9650 was awesome! I didn't even have a QX and clocked 9x500 for 4.5GHz
