    worth the upgrade?

    This is true. Lol I'm just torn I guess I mean I can hold out until 4000 series. Still thinking on holding off, but I do need memory upgrade that's for sure. As for gpu acceleration mines alway been set on auto. So I'm going to assume it's on by default.

    worth the upgrade?

    Might just keep using the 1700x if it's only like 200ms differences for now and wait couple months on 3900x and see if price drops anymore. I have a dual monitor setup lol as for the 34" ultrawide got a really good deal on it awhile back so I grabbed it that's what I usually game on.

    Tried all that, and I don't have vccsa control. I do have vsa control don't know if that's the same thing or not. I do know that I can set the vcore to 1.45, but in windows it says it running 1.36 cause of vdroop maybe?

    Xeon Owners Club

    Yeah I don't think this board likes overclocking xeon processors. What ever I do I can't get 4.3 stable nor 4.2, and 4.1. Have to set the vcore to 1.45+, vssio to 1.3 and some other to boot in windows in then crash. Messed with a lot of settings actually with no avail. Sad thing is it has an...

    Xeon Owners Club

    Technically it was my a10-7860k, but really I dont really consider that my last one cause all I did was change the multi, but I do consider my 3770k last cpu I overclocked cause I actually took time to not just messing with multipler. More and more went to that. Like adjusting vcore, and other...

Can't find much on overclocking them well with my motherboard anyways. I use to have 3770k are they the same in terms in overclocking? Is there a different...

    Xeon Owners Club

    So I got an Xeon E5-1650 v2 to replace my E5-2630 v1. My questions is what can I expect from the E5-1650 v2? Can they be overclocked? BTW the motherboard is an EVGA X79 SLI.

    Xeon or the i5

    Don't think I'm going to be streaming at all. Just cause the performance hit I might hit cause intel bug issue so probably just gaming mostly and some light video editing. So probably going to go the i5.
