L5430

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?

Agree, much easier if you choose a board where the BIOS has already been modded and you just need to flash it. There's no getting around having to flash the modified BIOS and physically modify the socket to make the mod work but it is pretty easy with the right tools.

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

If you go to page 21 of this thread,you'll find a list of most of the bios that have been modded & posted here. That makes it easier 'cause the bios has already been done & U just have to flash it. I would recommend the intel 45 series chipset or the 35 series chipset for overclocking the 31,33 & 41,43 series didn't overclock as well from my understanding.If you can find a cheaper board with ddr3 capacity that's a plus.
