    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.

    Got a few new items in. SGI M29A. Came with dual P3 Xeon 1Ghz, 1GB of of RD-RAM and a Quadro VR3. MSI Master2-FAR, came with dual Opteron 275s. Will need to test this board before I figure out what to do with it. I've got a GTX 480 I was planning on running on a K8N-DL, but couldn't find a...

    Ebay listing had a stock picture from newegg showing the MS-9620-020 which apparently is the later version that supports 285s, but the model number showed MS-9620-010. Guess I'll have to wait and see what it actually is when I receive it. Hoping it's the later version.

    Nah, but I have a pair of Opteron 285s I was originally planning on using with an Asus K8N-DL, but couldn't one cheap enough.

    Heh, what a coincidence, just snagged one of these Master2-FARs as well. My board is used, hopefully it comes with the SLI switch card. What should I plop on this thing for GPUs? There are some 9800GX2s on auction I could bidsnipe for cheap.

    Not sure, the modules are not clearly marked. Will find out when I boot it, need a heatsink first tho.

    Got a Chaintec 6ITM + Pentium Pro a few days ago. Now I need to figure out what I'm doing for graphics and sound.

    SBT2 specification manual indicates those proprietary front panel connectors are for LEDs and indicators apparently. Power and reset switches have their own separate headers which will accept standard power/reset switch connections. Lol, I hope this board boots without the 10-pin.

    Sealed retail boxed Intel SBT2. Didn't consider this at first, but the front panel connectors are proprietary. There's also some kind of proprietary 10-pin connector, I believe it's required if using a redundant power supply. No idea if it's actually required to boot the board or not. Apparently...

    Apparently HP produced a workstation that used the Asus XG-DLS dual xeon board. Trying to find out exactly what machine this would have been. Only slot-2 based HP workstation I know of is the Kayak XU and that's a proprietary board. Older HP workstations are pretty neat in that some of them use...
