- X58 Xeon Club -



X58 users unite! The X58 has been shadowed for some time now, but the platform is still viable. I thought I’d make this topic for X58 users who are running Xeons. That means ANY Xeon, not just Hexa-cores. With so many people upgrading to Xeons I felt that this would be a fine time to post this topic. Feel free to post pictures of your X58 builds, benchmarks and specs. This is your time to brag. thumb.gif

You're welcome and thank for the kind words man, but NOT APPROVED! mad.gif

LOL I'm just joking man. I just wanted to use the rejected pic at least one. I don't think I'll be using that a lot.

Bradford1040 05-16-2014 12:49 PM

Thank you, I just got a 4.8ghz stable but a stupid USB bug code BSOD made me miss the validation lol, I need to do more searching on cpu pll voltz and other stuff as well, I can't set my PLL voltz lower than 1.8v on my board so never was able to see if lowering it would help but I think I might need to raise it with 4.8~5.2 ghz? did you have to?

4.8ghz not 24/7 just seeing what I can do

why always after I buy something do the better ones always get cheaper! X5670 @ $200/Free shipping

Nah I don't mess with PLL that much. It will cause some degrading for sure. High PLL voltage settings kills CPUs much quicker. 1.80v PLL is the default voltage. I left my settings on AUTO. 4.8Ghz is a nice speed. I understand it's not for 24/7. I actually hit 5.4Ghz and booted into Windows. I restarted my PC because I just didn't like the amount of voltages going through my CPU. You should be careful because I have been reading about CPUs losing their overclocks due to degradation. In other words your stable safe OC's become unstable and you have to run your PC with either more voltage or lower core speeds.

Bradford1040 05-16-2014 08:48 PM

dude! 1.646v? wow! I do not care all that much if I fry my chip, but that is some high voltz for the hexa core! I seen one of your other pics showing 1.31v @ 4.4ghz from what I have been reading on the 980~990x and X56** chips the max safe core voltage for 24/7 is 1.45~1.5v depending of course on heat which I have to admit looks like you have noooo problem there! I am on a glorified air cooler the H100i so can't get maxing my chip out with out seeing temps climbing into the 88c range which is my un-confort zone lol, I know the max is 96c or 97c and not the 100c that most are at, so pushing past 80c my balls start to crawl up lol. But if I pushed to 1.646v I bet my CPU/Hexa Furnace would pop! lol

I have been posting good prices on another thread, you want me to PM you anytime I find one at a good price? Oh and can you use Ebay and Amazon?

bill1024 05-18-2014 03:12 PM

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.

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.

Haserath 05-18-2014 06:52 PM

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.

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

BuxPC 05-20-2014 09:30 AM

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

I think it would.... however I cannot remember if it was A or B channel that had the unusable stick of RAM. I think it was B meaning that on that board it would probably utilized all three sticks. Thanks by the way cheers.gif. I'm debating on the fate of my x58 Classy setup right now. The only thing is that if I were to sell it it would have to go with the board blocks because I tore the stock sinks apart making something lol. thumb.gif

I have asrock supercomputer with i7 950, I want to upgrade cpu but asrock no longer supports board.
Here's cpu list but It stops at bios v2.40 and the bios has gone up to 3.40. I contacted asrock before on another issue and they tell me the board is too old and they wont support it anymore

Hmmm... support for the 980x is 2.7 and 990x is 3.3. I don't know about this.... I wonder if some microcode additions to a BIOS file for the board would work or if it is one of the boards that requires some "hard" mods like my x58 classy did for the dual QPI link on Xeons. Anyone?

pdasterly 05-23-2014 04:49 PM

Is the x5660 the best value in terms of price/performance?
some of those xeon are still very expensive

kckyle 05-23-2014 04:57 PM

no the x5650 is the best value at the moment, its cheaper and the only downside is you lose 1 multiplier.

pdasterly 05-23-2014 05:01 PM

Is this a good upgrade from i7 950?

kckyle 05-23-2014 05:16 PM

absolutely, not only its
a 32nm from 45nm,
but its 6 core vs 4 core,
so that means 12 threads instead of 8,
and its 95watts vs 130watts

my 920 scored around 5k for passmark, overclock it to 4ghz and its 7k,
the x5650 stock performs at 7-8k with no oc. with oc i think its somewhere around 9k, which is enough for watch dogs's ultra setting
i also bought mine for 80 bucks off ebay.

}SkOrPn--' 05-24-2014 08:05 PM

Hello guys. I think I want to join this club, but I have a few questions.

I have a Rampage III Extreme and a i7-930 (ROG series which all accept xeons apparently). My 930 has done 4.5 the first three months of its life, however I felt that I needed to go easier on it (core temp was insane) so I dropped it down to 4ghz (200x20). This ran flawlessly for the past few years no problem. Then before 2013 was over I decided to go even easier on the cpu and dropped it down to 3.6ghz and really have not noticed any performance loss. However, I am aching for more core application performance without having to upgrade the entire platform. My board easily has no problem at 200 bclk so I am wondering what kind of drop in upgrade would the X5650 be if I run it at 200x20 as well? I read from another user that he replaced his i7-970 with a X5650 and he can not believe the difference, but I can't believe his story, lol. He claims his system is all around much faster including day to day tasks (I want that too). This x5650 can be had for under a hundred bucks wow.

I was thinking of a whole new system but my x58 just runs so good now that it is VERY difficult to pull the trigger on another easy few thousand dollars or more if the differences are just a slight performance increase. So has anyone else had the same amazing experience going to these xeons? I would prefer to spend the money on a super fast PCIe 8x SSD (as apposed to a whole new platform) that can be OS booted from instead and this X5650 or 5660, lol. Then when they have some true new stuff on the market upgrade to what ever.

So, again how does the X5650 handle 4ghz? Is it a worth while upgrade path? an amazing upgrade path? or a waste of money? Thank You!

SkOrPn

kckyle 05-25-2014 05:52 PM

mine is coming in on wednesday, but from what a buddy of mine told me 4ghz on the x5650 is a piece of cake.

if your upgrading from 930 to xeon it makes sense, perfomance boost as well as power consumption reduction.

i'm having a hard time believing what your pal with the 970 said as well, since the 970 is also a hexacore, the only upside is 32nm vs 45nm, maybe that allwos better overclocking?

Exactly, I do not know, however if there is a noticeable performance boost from the 970 to the 5650, that means there would be a MUCH bigger boost from a 930. I was slightly interested in hexacore until he said that, but now I am VERY interested in finding out, lol...

One of the subjects I want to know is about overclocking, is it much different than the Xeon's on this platform or do I just use the same settings I used for 4ghz on my 930? and then lower voltages and test again? I did not go through this thread yet, so is there any guides or tips on hex and x58 hidden within this thread? Again, its been three years or more since I played around in my bios extensively, but hexa and 32nm and a lower temp threshold seems like it would be starting from scratch all over again.

kckyle 05-25-2014 07:36 PM

since i haven't got my chip yet i cant comment, but i do know the x5650 is 20 multiplier, that is less than the i7 9XX, with that in mind i would make a educated guess and say yeah.

if you want you can spend more $$ and get x5660 or even 5670. the higher the x56(X)0 the more multipliers you get to have.

jetpak12 05-25-2014 07:36 PM

Wow, thanks for this club! I actually just put my first X58 rig together two days ago and its got a Xeon Inside. biggrin.gif Its good to see an active community for the platform! thumb.gif

Here's mine: X5650 + ASUS P6T Deluxe: http://valid.canardpc.com/zclx0w
EDIT: Realized that the submission name was my PC name instead of my OCN username: http://valid.x86.fr/qza0be

Seeing as how I've only had the rig for two days, I'm still running stock. Can someone point me to a good OC guide? I just finished tighting up my RAM timings today and have good stability there, so I'm ready to start going for 4GHz. I also heard that it was easy to hit 4GHz on the X5650, so let's make this baby get to work. yessir.gif

Here are the prices for parts I bought last week, they're all from Ebay:
- Mobo: $65
- Proc: $90 (from esiso)

Not too bad upgrading from a Core 2 Quad I'd say. smile.gif

^i bought mine from esiso as well biggrin.gif

how fast was the shipping. mine havent came yet.

jetpak12 05-25-2014 07:40 PM

It was really fast! I think I had it in about two or three days. I think it shipped from California, so I'm a little closer to them than you are.

My build was waiting on the RAM, that took about a week... thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

if your upgrading from 930 to xeon it makes sense, perfomance boost as well as power consumption reduction.

i'm having a hard time believing what your pal with the 970 said as well, since the 970 is also a hexacore, the only upside is 32nm vs 45nm, maybe that allwos better overclocking?

i7-970 is also 32nm. Its practically the same chip. I can't see any reason at all to change to a Xeon from that.

One of the subjects I want to know is about overclocking, is it much different than the Xeon's on this platform or do I just use the same settings I used for 4ghz on my 930? and then lower voltages and test again? I did not go through this thread yet, so is there any guides or tips on hex and x58 hidden within this thread? Again, its been three years or more since I played around in my bios extensively, but hexa and 32nm and a lower temp threshold seems like it would be starting from scratch all over again.

If you don't do heavy multitasking it may not be worth your time. If you just want something to tinker with, X5650 is the way to go.
The biggest difference OCing a Gulftown is that the Uncore frequency only needs to be 1.5X the DDR speed as opposed to 2X on the Bloomfield. The IMC is also more fragile so max QPI/Vtt volts is 1.4v.

ALWAYS reset the CMOS when installing a new chip and OC from scratch. There's no telling how the new chip will respond to "unsafe" settings.

Thanks guys, yeah I know all the specs of all the xeon's, as I spent an entire day researching them the other day and figured the X5650 sounds like the one I would want since 4ghz is my prefered target. Multitasking? LOL, I have three monitors, two OS's (8.1 as Host, and Linux in a VM), and run Plex & Netflix apps on a 55" 1080P TV just a few feet away from it all.

OK, so my initial thinking about the 970 to 5650 claim was right on the button. He must have had a really bad 970 or a REALLY amazing 5650, lol... (or he had a typo)

One last question, will the Xeon X5650 work with my 12gb of DDR3-1600 G.Skill Ripjaws? According to CPU World the X5650 only handles up to DDR3-1333. Is that a typo? I do not want to buy more memory just to use this processor.

Thanks guys... I'm smelling an upgrade finally happening, haha I can't wait...

It should be comfortable with RAM up to around 1900-ish without much fuss

It should do 1600. I found out when I did my set up the other day that my two existing DDR3 sticks aren't actually 1600MHz, but only 1333. The third stick I bought off ebay to complete my set does support 1600MHz and XMP profiles, so I can load it up in the BIOS, but the other sticks won't boot at 1600.

I bought my old sticks with the understanding that they were rated to do 1600MHz but I thought the P45 (socket 775) platform I was running on was limiting me from reaching that. The original packaging (which I still have) clearly says "1600 CL9" but its not listed in CPU-Z timings table, like the new one I just bought. The old ones say the max bandwidth is "PC3-10700 (667MHz)" while the new one says "PC3-12800 (800Mhz). The thing is, I've owned these sticks for about two years now, should I try contacting Kingston about it?

The reason it says DDR-1333 is because that is the frequency that Intel officially supported for this platform. If you check your 930 it'll be the same rating. Everything higher is an overclock. Either load the XMP profile, or the better choice, manually overclock it when you do the rest of the system. As said already, it won't be a problem.

Damn, I love this thread already... In three days it will be my birthday, maybe I can get some family members to realize what I really want, lol...

Ok, the RAM will be manually overclocked like it is now. I never did see any benefit trying to hit higher ram clocks, but I did try to lower voltages and timings. I assume if I'm happy with my ram timings, voltage and clocks I can keep those? So, all I would need to do really is write down all my settings, clear cmos, and start from scratch first with the RAM settings and then with the xeon settings. Seems simple enough to me.

I hope esiso does not run out of these chips just yet. I wonder what he means by labeling them as "Seller Refurbished"? There is nothing to refurbish, you pull it from working servers and then sell them as-is. lol rolleyes.gif

Whoops lol. But anyway, good luck with your x58! I might not stay on X58 as my main rig for long though despite being in the X58 xeon club for so long. From the L5520 to the L5639 ... I guess I only like low power chips.

I am interested in low power rigs as well, which is why I researched upgrading to AMD's new 8 core chips with GPU's built in and not even consuming 200 watts total. I now use about 460-480 watts at any given time. However, I feel like AMD would not give me the results I am looking for and would only be a money consuming project I can't risk to take. And Intel, well I would need to sell a whole bunch of stuff to get what I really want from their camp. I need extremely beautiful enthusiast boards such as my RIIIE to deck my custom case build, and in the Intel world that costs LOTs of money. However, with costs of energy rising almost every year, low power is becoming more and more attractive. And this coming from someone who owns a 12kW solar array, lol... Yeah, it is safe to say I am also interested in low power products, but for computers I need power/speed/snappiness first and foremost. I just hope in the future these things will be down to barely 50 or less watts and ten times faster than my i7... Now wouldn't THAT be sweet?

I had a 970 and it was a total pos lol. It did 4.1 with 1.4v. It was a truly terrible sample. But it had an awesome imc, much better then my Xeon es. My Xeon does not like mems over 1000mhz, and will not run mems at 800mhz at stock clocks without adding some qpi vtt. It clocks to 4.9 whereas my 970 topped out at 4.2 with 12 threads, boo.

not bad! was this a suicide run or was it stable, only asking as I had my eyes on one (W3680) or a x5680 and they are both the same price, I was kinda leaning towards the X5680 cause I own servers that can take these chips as well and the W3680 is only a single QPI lane CPU, so was thinking of having the best of both worlds

AM I mistaken or does this CPU have a unlocked multi? if so I think that will make my choice

This was hardly a suicide run. This was done in air cooling, on a whim during some free time I had. Not stable though, and not really common among these hex cores. Yes it has unlocked multi. I typically run between 4.2-4.5GHz every day stable.hardest part is finding a board with decent enough VRMs to handle the workload.

I just pulled the trigger on a X5650 from esisoinc at ebay. It is hard to believe that I could be getting a hexa core cpu at under a hundred bucks, especially when its still nearly $1000 new at newegg. Does anyone know why these are priced so low? And where are they being pulled from, datacenters or user workstations? If they are coming from datacenters then they are going to have never been overclocked and always had a nice cool environment to run in, yes?

Has anyone here asked esisoinc where these chips are coming from?

Are you saying anything higher and it was not stable, or is this a backdown number that you are just comfortable with? Man I really hope mine does 4ghz stable as my 930 easily did that for the past 3 years or so. If not, I would be satisfied with at least 3.6, but anything lower would be a bummer.

I have an unopened Indigo Extreme TIM for 1366 that I lost the nerve to try a few years ago, lol. Wondering if I should finally give that a try since this is going to be the first time removing the water block in years? Or sell it to someone who really wants to push their Xeon... Probably doesn't matter though considering with a drop in wattage temps should also be lower. I hope

No, 3.7ghz happens to be the spot in which I did not need large amount of vcore and temps were fairly in check. I always go for a stable medium OC, then work on a higher/max stable OC. I like to keep HT on, so my vcore and temps would likely be more than a similar OC without HT.

I'm tinkering around with 4ghz, hopefully I'll get something stable around there.

Yeah me too but stupidly I Google them after the purchase. I didn't see it before hand but they clearly state they do not sell products for desktop only servers. I wonder if that means they will consider my R3E a desktop and not honor any warranty if the chip is bad?

That is funny that you mention it I too keep HT on. Well good luck with yours. I've been reading nonstop yesterday on these xeons and hopefully by the time it arrives I will already know the differences from my 930. Can't wait to play... Lol

I've been running an eBay business for nearly a decade and what you describe is common practice. I never leave bad feedback unless there is real reason to such as theft of your money, seller not willing to make it right what ever it may be. But late shipping on a holiday weekend is not a reason to harm someone's ability to make money. I also did not work Friday-Monday and shipped all my weekend sales on Tuesday lol. Not one buyer was upset. I had family to visit that I may never see again since they moved far away on Sunday. You just don't know what the seller is going through so late shipping isn't a good reason to hurt someone. If the product works it works and you got it for a great price...

kckyle 05-28-2014 10:32 AM

if its late shipping for a day or two i dont mind, but what the shipping estimate is suppose to be tomorrow turns into somewhere next week is what bothers me, and it's not like i'm just sitting here idling waiting for the package, i actually have another build can't be completed because this cpu isn't here.

i have been buying from ebay since 2005 and having a near 2 weeks shipping window for something so small as a processor is ridiculous. if they can't make the estimated delivery window they should put that up for caution. i would have gladly spend an extra 5-10 dollar from another seller that can make the guaranteed deadline for shipping.

i have been buying from ebay since 2005 and having a near 2 weeks shipping window for something so small as a processor is ridiculous. if they can't make the estimated delivery window they should put that up for caution. i would have gladly spend an extra 5-10 dollar from another seller that can make the guaranteed deadline for shipping.
Its not going to take two weeks, not with the carrier anyway, maybe total time. He shipped it on Tuesday like you said, so it took him only the weekend to get it out which is expected. Yes, he could have shipped it on Friday, but maybe he had way too many things going on. Saturday - Monday were not officially counted by eBay so can not be considered as part of the delivery time frame so he got it out exactly like his ad says within two days. After the shipper has possession it is no longer the sellers responsibility, it is the shipper who was paid to deliver it, so now all anger should be directed toward the carrier. esiso is using FedEx Ground, or even worse FedEx Home Delivery (which hands it off to USPS at strategic locations and also adds time) which is clearly stated on the ad and his store. Both FedEx services use Freight Trucks which is why I refrain from using FedEx if I can help it (unless buying something not to far away haha). And sadly for you it looks like his shipping dept is in California and you are in NY, no? (ouch). I am in New Mexico near the "Big I" so will get mine probably on Monday. USPS First Class would have been much quicker (goes by plane unless in the same state or region), but less convenient for the seller with less guarantees. Frankly I am not sure why a seller would not use USPS for such a small item, unless you have an account with FedEx and get a volume discount, which is probably the case. Just put the thing in a strong crush-proof box (that's what I use for processors), and toss that into a bubble mailer envelope.

Well the seller contacted me today and told me, exactly what I thought I would hear. "Sorry Sir, but I am the selling dept, I have no clue where the purchasing dept got these from, so I can only assume they came from retired servers". Oh well, that is exactly what I expected to hear pretty much. That is why after ten years I still have a perfect 100% score at ebay because I always try and ship next day and I always honestly answer questions and never lie about a product I am selling. Chances are though he does not know the history of the chip, but only that it was pulled from a server, just like he said. I'm still going to give this guy a perfect score just because he is selling them for $88, even if it takes two weeks to get... unless of course its a dead chip and he does not immediately ship me another.

When you get yours let me know, maybe we can share notes on the settings. I contacted a guy who is running his 5650 at 4.6ghz, and although I do not care to push it that much it is still a very nice OK for a 2.66ghz proc and makes me wonder what his settings/cooling are...

Here's my current OC:http://valid.x86.fr/ji3cep

I'm slowly creeping up higher, so this is just a temporary stopping point. I'd like to high 4.6 for a +2GHz OC. I've got watercooling, so we'll see what this chip does.

Now let's see some benchmarks.

What would you like to see?

Don't worry, you should still get your chip this week. For whatever reason Ebay was telling me that it was going to take over a week to arrive at my house, but I got it much sooner. Shipped via FedEx.

ANYTHING. This is the X58 [xeon] users chance to brag. Post anything you wish. Any benchmark, stress test or setup. I'd like to see the PC setup's here as well.


I'm in the process of making a list. So I'm going to add all of the members to the very first page once I finish the list. It will include the [stable] clock speeds as well.

Your on water and your chip is running at 62c at only 4ghz? Is your ambient really high right now or did it register a load temp? Also, how did you get a multi of 22 if the 5650 only has a max of 20? This hexa core seems so much different then my 930 that it is almost like I am moving to a different platform, without moving anything but the chip, lol. The last time I did something weird like that was when I purchased two Pentium III's to replace my single Celeron on one of my Abit BP6's, becoming one of the first early adopters to enjoy SMP on a Desktop system (although nothing could take advantage of it for home use, lol). Man the late 90's were a joyful ride...

The X5650 multiplier max is 23x. The hexa cores does make the build feel like a refresh. That's actually exactly what it is. I never knew that I would get so many people to upgrade. I thought many had moved on to Sandy\Ivy\Haswell. At these cheaper prices I'm seeing some newer platform users move back to X58. Coming from a i7-960 it felt like a entire new platform for me as well. I was finally able to enjoy Crysis 3 with no CPU bottlenecking.

Yeah my Father gave me a look like he was jealous about me having a hexa, when he moved on to a i7-2600K and never bothered to learn how to overclock it. He threw a ridiculous amount of memory at it 32GB and a few SSD's and thought he had something much better than his x58 and old i7-920. I have a feeling the money he spent did not give him a upgrade more like a side grade really. He could have just got 24GB of memory and a 970 and saved some money I think.

I am so incredibly excited to be able to upgrade my system without having to spend a thousand dollars to do it. Thank you for this thread! I just wish I had a better USB 3.0 implementation (something that boots flash drives) and better storage performance without having to spend incredible amounts of money to do it. I'd love to throw a LSI 9271-4i or 9266-4i into this and 4 SSD's to experience better storage performance, but the heat and power consumption those cards produce is not something I'm willing to accept.

Thank you again. I also need to thank zoson over at extremesystems because he is the one who pointed me to the xeon in the official Rampage III Extreme Owners thread. I would have never guessed that they had come down in price like this...

EDIT: Both CPU World and Wikipedia state it is only a 20 multi. So not sure where I am not seeing the data. The X5675 has a 23 multi, but the X5650 every where I look is showing only a 20. Oh boy, if I am getting a 23 multi I'm going to have to go get some redbull for the marathon weekend I'm about to have wink.gif

flyin15sec 05-29-2014 03:05 AM

The 23 multi is for single core only, if you stress all 6 cores, it'll stay at 22. You have to enable the C state in the BIOS, mine is simply set on auto.

This for sure... however, you have to leave "Turbo Boost" on in BIOS to get the 22 and 23x multipliers I think. Otherwise it stays at 20 or 21 I can't remember.

cheers, i'm just not digging the timing, next week my friend from out of town is visiting so i'm not even gonna be home half the time never mind tearing my pc apart to replace the cpu. this week is the only free week i have hence why i'm ultra pissed at esiso for their late late shipping.

i personally want to hold off the upgrade to ivy bridge or sandy or broadwell for as long as i can simply because...i'm lazy lol:D. and if i want to upgrade to to a new platform that means i have to tear my entire computer just to replace the motherboard. and that imo is too much hassle.

No it isn't. The x23 is for 2 cores. The X5650 is x23 by default, which is why I didn't include the C-state options. By default C-states are enabled. Everyone should know by know that the Xeon will drop 1 multiplier when more than 2 cores are being used. Well at least I explained this in my review in my X5660 topic. 2 cores get the turbo not 1 core from what my friends have shown me. Also the EIST can get weird at high clocks [5Ghz+] or maybe there's a bug in CPU-Z and other core speed reading programs. Having Turbo isn't required to hit 22x from what others have told me as well. I'm running X5660 and I don't have to Turbo enabled to hit 23x [max 24x].

I thought the same things about building a new rig, I'd have to take everything out to place in the new platform. I was going to go Sandy-E or Ivy-E. That's until I found my X58 Hexa core last year. Then I ran test and found out that the newer test clock for clock in most test can be as low as less than 1% in some test clock for clock. Definitely wasn't worth the price to upgrade at all. I'm planning to hold off for Skylake-E at this point.

I hope everyone is enjoying this, because now that the X58 Xeons are getting all the buzz.across the web....>_>... you know Intel is NEVER going to let this happen again. Even if \ when they bring back BCLK overclocking I bet they keep the server grade Xeons locked in some way. Whether that's BCLK or Turbo. We'll probably be forced to spend big money on Extreme Edition i7's. I'm just preparing for the worst since this is Intel after all.
