Hello, did anyone tried if 50W TDP L5430, overclocked to 3 Ghz, will actually draw lesser power, than E5450 on stock (3Ghz) speed? I know lower TDP doesn't mean real power consumption, but I am choosing which Xeon I will choose, for only mild overclock (want to go between 3,2-3,4 Ghz), so I assume, L5430 overclocked to 3,4Ghz will draw LESS power than E5450, or will they equal? Did anyone test it? L5430 is cheaper by 10$, so it's interesting not only for price, but if it even draws few watts less.
And one question about BIOS, do the moded BIOSes here (on post #201) include L5430, E5450, E5440 (i still deciding which to take)? I have Asus P5Q Deluxe, and already see there moded BIOS v2301, but what Xeons are added?

thx. very helpful.. maybe i will try to find another mobo as i already got the E5450 on hand. What mobo do u suggest that less hassling as i do not know how to update the bios...
One feature you may want to look for is being able to unlink the memory speed from the cpu bus speed. This is a really helpful chipset feature if you are planning to overclock and can make overclocking this platform considerably easier. I am not sure all supported chipsets offer this funtionality but I know 790i chipsets do.
I am surprised to see the 790i Ultra chipset board prices are still pretty high but I heard of some peeps using a Dell branded 790i Ultra chipset they they picked up on ebay pretty cheap. Dell XPS 730, here is one for an example that is at least $40 cheaper than an XFX or EVGA branded board. https://www.ebay.com/itm/GENUINE-Del...ty!02893!US!-1
There is also the flagship ASUS Striker II Extreme but they are very pricey. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ASUS-Strike...sAAOSwcYVdzfCE
