    Nah, the performance is not the issue with doom. I'm asking why am i getting the same framerates with two different CPU's, when the 2630 v2 is suppose to be faster. I'm getting the same fps in every game, even sleeping dogs which i just posted from the photo. Unless the 1607 v2 is faster with...

    Thanks, also the best CPU i found is this one is the E5-2680 V2 for my HP420. When the price drops i will grab it, don't feel like spending 80 bucks or 100 dollars on it.

    Question is my CPU speed correct? Intel Xeon 2630 v2. When its at full throttle i was wondering was it suppose to be higher, the core speed, looks like its staying at 2.8ghz. But i thought it uses turbo boost 2.0 and it should be reading 3.10ghz or something like that.

    16 Core 32 Thread HP Z820 Workstation Build

    hmm i would buy the E5-2673 v2 for my HP 420, but 60 bucks a bit to much for old cpu, considering i only paid 22 dollars for my 2630 v2.
