    Hmmm, if these procs are not vaporware, I'm sure they are going to be a massive rip if they do show up for sale anywhere. But, the thought of dual 5+ GHz Xeons with HT is super tempting. Not sure if 10MB cache will be a drawback to those or not, though. Article is super vague, I'm assuming dual...

    Yeah I saw that afterward. My bad.

    Not sure how you mean, gaming doesn't load up all cores and max GPU out in every situation. BarsWF loads up all cores and the GPU simultaneously. This is the absolute max this machine will pull going balls out 100% on all cores and the GPU. Edit: DERP. Saw you referenced the SR-2 build. I'm...

    Just got home. My idle is actually not much better than the Knoxx29's SR-2 build. I'm getting about 210W idle according to my UPS. Full load running BarsWF hashing on all cores and my GTX 1070 pulls 610W. Gaming load is about 415W. HT is enabled currently.

    Off the top of my head, gaming load subtracting 80W or so from my monitors is around 380W. Full load on all cores with HT enabled and GPU is about 600W I believe. This was testing before my Seasonic X760 died. Running an EVGA Supernova 850P2 so I expect the numbers are a bit lower now. Idle is...

    I'll see if I can grab some numbers on my current setup when I get home.

    Wow, power consumption is actually not as high as I would have expected with that setup.

    Ah ok. You mentioned 3.0GHz turbo, I assumed you might have been looking at an engineering sample as the production chip turbos to 3.2GHz on all cores.

    You may not see full all-core turbo unless your cores are loaded heavily enough. If you find this is a problem for some applications, particularly games, you can use something like system explorer to set and retain affinity and priority settings so you are more likely to turbo when running them...

    Once you go dual socket, you can never go back to just the one.

    Of course if you want to play with older stuff you have: -Intel D5400XS Skulltrail -Asus L1N64-SLI (lol Quad-FX) -Asus KFN5-D SLI -Asus K8N-DL -MSI K8N Master2-FAR -MSI K8T Master2-FAR Most of that is off-topic AMD stuff, but still. Fun to play with. Also pretty sure you can stickermod or pin...

    Ah yeah should have clarified those are all workstation boards.

    SR-2, SR-X and Asus Z9PE-D8 and Z10PE-D8/16 are the only ones I think. Edit: I think a couple Supermicro and Asrock boards might allow some basic OC options as well.

    Main drawback to used is the stuff floating around out there is an unknown quantity. You're taking a chance on every component you buy second-hand. But then again, processors are pretty resilient. I've never bought a bad second-hand proc. The board, procs and memory on my current build are...

    Here's my current rig. Specs in my profile. And a little side-project in the making.
