Resident Evil II Remake Racoon City Zombie Infestation (GTX 1070 pretty much maxed out) : 240 Watts

Cinebench R15 Multicore (exactly 1000 points Kappa) : 275 Watts

Conclusion: All not that worrysome. Although those 12 year old VRMs are pulling a fine load...

System (sorry no proper export sheet):
Gigabyte X58a-UD5 (Rev1)
Xeon X5670 (@ 197 BCLK x 22, 1,328 VCore)
6x2 GB Corsair XMS 1600 (@ 15xx CL7 CR1)
Alpenföhn Atlas
Zotac GTX 1070 Mini
Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB
WD Velociraptor 300 GB
Corsair AX - 750 Watts PSU
Audiotrak Prodigy HD 2
Cooltek G 3 Case (allows for fan directly behind CPU VRMs)

Bios set voltages:
Loadline-Calibration : Level 1
CPU VCore : 1.36875 V (the actual value appears much lower)
QPI/VTT Voltage : 1,315 V
IOH Core : 1,1 V
ICH I/O : 1,5 V

Godspeed everyone!
I assume that wattage is for entire computer? As in monitoring power consumed by computer's PSU?

Noob256 Hi everyone,

i was surprised to yet see an active and nice community around this board series. Pretty cool!

I finally assembled some more or less leftover parts to my X58 UD-5 (Rev 1) which had been serving me faithfully until i finally upgraded to a Skylake 6700k.

Now the Westmere X5670 i Ebay´ed a while ago looks alright. But what worries me is the power draw that HWInfo shows during Cinebench. 560 Watts seems a bit much... ?! Is that a somewhat legit figure or does HWInfo mess up there? I am a little worried.

Thanks in advance for any qualified feedback.

My system/settings:
Gigabyte X58A-UD5 Rev 1, Bios F7
Xeon X5670 (air cooled by EKL Alpenföhn Atlas)
Corsair AX750 PSU
6x2 GB Corsair XMS CL7 (CR 1)
Zotac GTX 1070 Mini
197x22 @ 1,368 VCore Bios set (apparently turns out as 1,328 V both in CPUZ and HWInfo)
LLC Lvl 1
VTT 1,315
ICH Values: Manually keyed in default values just to be safe
Rest of the Voltages set to AUTO (should i customize them? forgot most of the X58 OC stuff and i miss clunk.co.uk which had a very nice topic on OCing this board back in the day)


See Powers -> CPU MAX (my Coffe Lake CPU doesnt have this tab anymore somehow) in HWInfo ...

all I can tell is it's using version FH, so I'm hoping it doesn't become some sort of issue. That being said, it's amazing that intel originally had 6 core processors only to go away from it.

Perhaps I can settle for the xeon w3680 then, as it's only $43

EDIT:

Got the w3680, and overclocked it.


Managed 4.4 ghz at 1.375v,
191 bclk, x23 mult, x19 uncore, x6 ram,
got a wonderful cinebench score of 2106 and 287 (single)
Hasn't crashed or stuttered really on me yet, so i'm keeping it this way ;D

Temps peak around 78 C (66 F ambient) on the corsair H80 with an EF4 vardar in pull

$45 well spent, i'd say. Only thing it can upgrade now is with 3x8gb ECC ram and a 2070

Did you try out that ECC Ram? i couldnt get it to work with stock bios, havent tried again since updating to FH.

yeliyayue Here's a screen of my x58a-ud3r with a w3670 running a xmp profile in triple channel.

that should answer a few questions

Edit: I should note that the stock bios worked fine, unless i went into the overclock screen. it would freeze and i would have to restart :/ After updating to latest bios(fh with @BIOS ) I've had zero issues.

Zetren Does the GA-EX58-UD5 support XMP profiles?

Zetren For the record a Gigabyte rep got back to me and said the GA-EX58-UD5 VRM and southbridge thermal pad size is 1.0mm

They are usually 1.0mm, but I would take them off and measure them.
