|the matty||ended up grabbing just a bog standard pair of X5670s off of ebay for 30 quid, one was DOA but will see about getting a replacement/refund for that as they were bought separately, the other one is a borderline god tier bin though, does 4.5GHz for 1.32v|

|the matty||So, X5675 ended up selling before I got chance to nab it, only missed it by a few days, get paid monday and it sold today, am the sad now, fortunately though I found a pair of X5675's on the bay, server pulls so likely been babies their whole life too so that's nice, dunno how they clock as a result but it's £20 more for a pair than it would have been for the single binned one from before, hopefully one of them is a good bin, but if not I can always just take one and pump say 1.5v into it daily till it either dies or gets degraded or something, but either way should be reyt, comes with a pair of dell server heatsink things which I can shift on after the fact to claw back some money too so that's nice|

So i might be onto a nice lead for an X5675 for reasonably cheap that can manage 4.7GHz at at around 1.375v, with some luck I can grab that and and pump out some silly numbers
Edit to add: it seems I've actually spoken to this person before on another site and i've seen the guy run this for long periods of time so it's a winner

Only got to 4.7GHz at 1.32v. Jealous of the CPU I got for my work computer. I'm sitting here at 4.8GHz 1.21v

I have to get a better AM4 board

Congrats on the new build and good luck with the overclock.
I did clock vs clock comparisons back in 2014-2016 for Sandy\Ivy Bridge using some of the highest rated overclocks on both of those platforms. This is before Ryzen and Intel latest and greatest dropped. At the time I was thinking about going Sandy\Ivy Bridge-E. Saved a lot of money in the process based on my findings. Maybe others will think otherwise, but it wasn't that "big" of a jump for me. Especially when you look at all the money that "could" have been involved.

|Caffinator||I just got a X299 setup in the mail so i am going to overvolt the hell out of this thing and see if i can get some good benchmarks ????????????. Will post direct clock-for-clock comparisons. Xeon X5650 at 4.4GHz(18x Uncore)(200BCLK) compared to i7 7800X|

Yes but expect "slight" degradation at those voltages even on dual rad custom waterloop. This is from my own experience. Nothing to worry about if you expect to upgrade in a few years and those "slightly" if even degraded chips of mine can still do 4ghz on air for light loads to this day.

|the matty||here if cooled reasonably well do we reckon that 1.45v would be okay for daily?|
