I was wondering if someone could tell me how good these CPUs perform at stock clocks compared to SB? also If you odnt mind i would like to try some benchmarks

I used to have a Z800 motherboard with a couple of X5650 then upgraded to X5675. When the motherboard died I've sold those over priced at the time X5675 for around 150€ a piece and bought a couple of E5-2670 for 150€ and a brand new motherboard for 225€ added another 4 sticks of memory and i was happy with the upgrade.

Still have that dual e5-2670 build and other board with a couple of V2's.

I have a z800 that i could test with. I have a pair of x5550 and e56xx (cant remember which exact model)

It is probably the best way to get high multi core performance for cheap.

It won't be great for games though. But this isn't a system one would build for that anyways.

But Ryzen 8 core IMO is a better option overall

Clock for clock architecturally wise the Sandy Bridge chips will outperform the Westmere chips by a not insignificant margin. Multi-thread though, dual Westmere is still respectably powerful.

Yes i know but wanted to compare in today games and since they are cheaper than buying a quad core with unlocked multiplier I was curious about how they could perform

yes but the price of DDR4 ram have increased and buying a new platform will be more expensive andand the amount of ram that I will be able to buy could be probably less

currently im running a dual westmere setup with x5680 cpu's (3.33 stock turbo to 3.6) This is running unraid for a server along with a gtx960 and hd7870 in two separate vms to run steam in home streaming. at least from my use i havnt noticed any problems with clockspeed on these. I imagine a higher end gpu would find the bottle neck but this is definitely a workable setup for my gaming needs.

I had to use my E5620 for a week recently. With my Vega 64 and 16GB of 1066 RAM, it played TW:W II, The Talos Principle, and FIFA 18 just fine at 1440p. For 60Hz gaming, it's really not much of a liability. That's on the quad-core E5620 with a low stock clock of 2.4GHz/2.66GHz Turbo as well. With one of the higher-clocked models (perhaps with a bit of base clock tweaking) you could do much, much worse.

Well I wonder since the games I plany usually are multithreading support..

so anyone else who owns a dual Xeon 6 core?

This.

My dual x5687 (3.6 ghz 4core) scores dead on par with a stock ryzen 7 1700. The 6 cores, although they have another 4 cores 8 threads total don't help as much as the higher clocks do for your situation. That said, i have a friend on a dual x5672 with gtx1080 we built him before ryzen came out, no bottlenecking and cant say that he should jump to ryzen either. If i had to spend money now to get one of the two setups for gaming and general use, i'd go ryzen, it's 1/3 the power consumption.
