Retrorockit Someone just did a nice W3690 overclock on a Dell T3500 workstation at the TPU Throttlestop Overclocking thread.
It's a separate forum because locked BIOS overclocking is very different from normal aftermarket modding. He's posted some Passmark, and Cinebench scores there.

Can you guys give some advice for a cpu cooler in that same price range of 20-35$ with which i can OC the Xeon x5675 to around 4.0 - 4.2Ghz without having to worry about the temps?



Would really help me a lot, i was eying the DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 as it is 10$ cheaper than the arctic i will return, i was thinking about buying a second fan with that money and add it to the heatsink to get a pull and push setup going. Would that be a good idea? Im happy to hear about any other suggestions!
I've got an Asus p6x58d premium board and a x5670 chip. I run the cooler master hyper 212 Evo and I got my system stable and cool at 4.2 GHz. Multi is 21x and blck is 200. I don't recall the voltage but my temps rarely go above 60 c even on load. The go to 70s when benchmarking but when gaming or using the PC hard (downloading, multiple tabs open, multiple Excel sheets, movie on 2nd screen, transcoding Plex) it's usually in the 50s/60s. It's a perfectly good cooler to hit the 4 GHz area in the $30 range

I have a P6T7 WS mobo with the two NF200 chips and can use a lot of PCIe lanes. Even mentioning the NF200 chips mucks up the whole idea but in the end if I can get away with being able to use bifurcation on the chipset-provided lanes then I could theoretically install multiple ASUS Hyper x16 cards with storage SSD's installed on that and have them run as independent drives. My thought is that the basic design of the ASUS card (i.e. it doesn't have a controller, if relies on board support for it to function) would work on X58 because it would just be a way to link up 4 M.2 drives.

I'm just trying to do any research I can before I attempt to do this. I can theoretically install a 2 or 3 of these (probably would go with 2, run my GPU in x8 and an extra PCIe to sata III adapter card along with that pairing and still be able to use 2 of the Blue PCIe slots in full X16 mode and install 8 NVMe SSD's (thinking less about speed, more about mass storage, I expect to start seeing some 8TB SSD's coming out a little cheaper with QLC becoming a real option).

3.2.2.1
Port Bifurcation
The IOH supports port bifurcation using PEWIDTH[5:0] hardware straps. The IOH supports the following configuration modes:
• The width of all links are exactly specified by the straps
• The width of all links are programmed by the BIOS using the PCIE_PRTx_BIF_CTRL register (wait on BIOS mode

I have a cooler mastrer evo 212 and it suits my needs perfectly. I also did install an inferior cooler caster hyper TX3 in my daughters PC and I can OC her L5639 to 3.9 Ghz with no effort. Also, nice temps.

Happens on my msi board now and then but I'll reload the OC profile, reboot and all is good again. I noticed it is more prone to this behavior if I disconnect it from the wall socket or turn off power supply (hard off ?!? don't know the expression) but it can be an issue of mine. Btw, it only happens when I near the oc limit on my system. In my case, usually if I go beyond 210 in bclk.

I haven't tinkered with my system for some time but yesterday I wanted to check my CPU load for some tasks and accidentally found that I'm running at stock 3.3GHz. So I booted into BIOS and when opening the overclocking settings portion I got the red message saying that the PC had boot failures so the settings were set back to default.

I was wondering what might cause boot failure while my overclock is stable? My PC is basically running 24/7 so I'm not sure when did it have any boot failures. Could a power cut or force shut down cause a boot failure?
If any other more specific info is needed let me know.
Might be nothing at all and caused by something like electricity failure.

If you're budget-limited, then the little Deepcool is decent - assuming your case airflow is good and your room temp is close to room temperature. Its fan is noisier than most, so adding an extra one will hurt noise levels more than help temps.

However, to get a better overclock with lower temps and noise, I'd spend a little more, but still under $50 for either:
Thermalright 120 SBM: https://www.amazon.com/Thermalright-...dp/B01CGMP9AK/
or
Scythe Mugen 5: https://www.amazon.com/Mugen-Rev-CPU...dp/B06ZYB8K77/

Or do what I did for one of my X58/5675 builds, pickup a used D14 for $25. ;-)
