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.

Should I splurge on a w3690 or just throw $30 at it with a w3670?


I don’t see W3670 listed....not sure if it will work, as it doesn’t come up on any of the supported list for Gigabyte old X58 mobo....I noticed that even I was checking mine mono a few months ago. Did you flash the backup bios with the current one you’re using?

Tempted to restart again, but not sure what to do now, with a blank screen...did I f up?
If you have a Rev 2 mobo, you need to get the correct bios for it. If you turn on the computer and kill the power and restart it again, the backup bios should kick in after 1-2 times, maybe 3 times of doing that and reflash the old bios back. Or flash it from bios menu. I suggest you check the files and mobo Rev you are using carefully, as wrong bios is the easiest way to brick a mobo and make it a paperweight.

....also, what OS are you using? Win10 can be a bit finicky with Intel AHCI drivers, as I had loaded older ones for my install and stripped the ones from the Win10 image out. You need to install the OS with AHCI enabled in bios first with the one HHD/SSD connected that the OS will go on.
