The x6550 are down to 90$ make offer on ebay. Looks like ebay is being flooded with them. Must be a server upgrade cycle going on.
The x5660 are down some too. 165 I think one just expired was at 150 and not one bid.

The validation link should contain your OCN username, but I remember your PC name when I helped you work with it.

That's really good for X58 users then. I paid around $200-$220 for my X5660. I can't remember the exact price, but it's the best $200 I've spent on my PC in awhile. Hopefully the prices continue to drop for those who might want to switch to a hexa core instead of upgrading to a different platform.

The X5650's are also down to $88 from esiso inc(where I got mine from). Much cheaper for most of the performance.

That is very nice... I paid $110 for mine I think... however the guy sent me a "defective" on the first time and realized it sending me the "correct" one. It worked out because I got two x5650's for the price of one! thumb.gif The "Defective" one can only use two memory channels though. It sees the triple channels and runs in triple channel but does not use the third. Not really any difference in benches between the two. Crazy.


I'll be joining this club soon enough. biggrin.gif

Nice, $55 each!

You could sell the good one and keep the defective one for yourself. You basically made money by "buying" them.

I wonder if that would work fine on a ASROCK Blood-dragon Board? I think that is the X58 with only 3 lanes not 6 like most X58's

BTW>>>>> You rigs in you sig are just sick thumb.gif I have been thinking of picking up another board like the sabertooth x58 I just love the look of that board or one like yours the EVGA Classified as it would go nicely with my gtx 680 classy

Price of X5660 sell in china is low to us$120 each.
us$200 you can get a X5670 with (12 - 25x) one step higher then X5660
and a ES sample X5660 sell at us$30 but it only can run on 4 core
worth a try it can still go 4.4G or higher
Two good motherboard for X56XX are Sabertooth X58 & Rampage III Extreme X58
selling at us$150 to us$200 in china smile.gif

dpoverlord 05-20-2014 02:33 PM

Really? what should I put it at? The temps at idle right now are 20-40c

right now I have a
CPU PLL of 1.8V
QPI 1.335
CPU Vcore of 1.34

I thought 1.35 was the safe zone.

CPU VALIDATION
http://valid.canardpc.com/dkl85j @ 4641MHZ

I tend to run it at 4.45GHZ though
