Let's have a separate thread for my favourite old-school platform :toast:

Currently running Linpack on my Xeon X5650 @ 4.1GHz.

edit: this part by @MachineLearning

I've tried to get to the bottom of this many times, there isn't a clear answer but this is my understanding of what's the max 24/7 voltage for 32nm x58:

- 1.45v max vCore
- 1.4v max uncore
- leave PLL @ default, but max 1.88v if you want to raise
- bump ICH up by the lowest increment (50mv for your board?) if you're unstable past 200 BCLK. If you don't make it to 200 BCLK and are unstable, look elsewhere before raising ICH.
- vDIMM max 1.65v

I'm hoping to break out some x58 rigs soon to play with and try to get some hwbot points.
So this would be a good place to post results

SV
Bloomfield i7s or Xeons or both? :) I have also a crappy dual-core Xeon E5502 which I could try some day. Also of course I have a spare i7-920 lying around.

Seems that my X5650 is a pretty crappy sample. Needed 1.3625V to run 1hrs of Linpack stable. I bumped the bclk 1MHz so it's at 4120MHz now, my goal is to achieve 4.2GHz Linpack stable.

Don't worry about the cooling guys. Alphacool Eisbaer w/ 240x30 + 240x45 rads. Also a blower like this for the VRM:

I sadly no longer have my old X58 system. It was glories to play with. Was on X58 for twelve years until last year where i upgradet to my current system. BUt i may no longer have X58, but what i do have is screenshots of my benchmarks runs with I7 920 up 4.4 GHz and I7 980X up to 4,75 GHz overclock. If any one would like to see them, let me know.

I'll crosspost my X58 build / overclocking posts from the Nostalgic Hardware thread. :) I'll post more once I finish messing with 775!

X58 and 775 are my two favorite platforms to OC by far.
You needn't say another word... :D
CPU-Z Validation Link
View attachment 234470
View attachment 234471View attachment 234472View attachment 234473

ASUS and EVGA have quickly become some of my favorite brands when it comes to motherboards, and for good reason...

View attachment 234474

I know CPU-Z has them, but here's the full specs listed out:

- ASUS P6X58D-E, w/ Arctic MX-4 for NB/SB and APT2560 0.5mm pads on VRM. Also, I added two little thermal adhesive aluminum heatsinks to the 3-phase memory VRM.
- 2x EVGA GTX 580 @ 920C, 2350M (not fully finished tuning/stabilizing but it finishes FFXIV Endwalker benchmark)
- EVGA Supernova G6 750W, which is extremely unhappy about the 580's and is running at its limit...
- 3x4GB Kingston 1866MHz CL10 DDR3, running at CL8 1600MHz (not tuned either)
- Thermalright Peerless Assassin PA120, which by now is probably mentioned in 50% of my posts
- Phanteks P400A Digital
- SK hynix Gold S31 1TB

Before this chip I tried to OC a 980X... did not go as well, could barely do 4.4GHz @ 1.4v on my X58 SLI LE. Instant Xeon fan after I got this one.

You got it ;)
New CPU-Z validation @ 2048MHz CL9, 1.375v QPI
View attachment 234483View attachment 234484

And CDM for ya, maxing out SATA II with this SK hynix S31. I use Intel ICH10R and ignore the Marvell SATA III controller, it's just a lot more consistent in real use.

View attachment 234485

Endwalker with same GPU OC as before:

View attachment 234486

Cinebench R23.2

View attachment 234487

And here's power consumption in 3 scenarios. Respectively: during Endwalker benchmark, during Cinebench R23.2 run, and desktop idle. Yeah, I'm glad this is a quality 750W unit with OPP around 1000W...

View attachment 234488View attachment 234489View attachment 234490


Also I want to give a huge thanks to @Regeneration for making these X58 BIOS mods. This is all with Spectre / Meltdown protections active.

I want to preface this by saying I know I post a lot in this thread, lots of pictures which take up much room, so if it bothers people I'd be more than happy to make a different thread. Just let me know please, I want to post, not to take over. ;)

Now, for more X58 adventures... This computer is a complimentary "sister" build to the other X58 one I posted about: same model case, similar motherboard, previously the same cooler (TR PA120), same CPU, same RAM - all the RAM even has sequential serial numbers. However, I ran into a heat wall when I wanted to bring a W3680 to the max, so that's where a new cooler - and newer CPU (2012 vs 2010 prod. date) come in.

Full specs:
- ASUS P6X58D Premium (favorite motherboard I have as of 10 minutes ago :D)
- Xeon X5675 (different sample than the previous build, but may be sister CPU)
- 3x4GB Kingston HyperX Fury DDR3 1866 @ 1.60v, 2090MHz, CL9-10-10-28-160-1T
- Thermalright Frost Commander 140 w/ MX-4 (holy moley this is supermassive... legitimately <=1mm of clearance to the glass!)
- ATI Radeon HD 5970 Reference @ stock
- Crucial MX500 1TB
- Super Flower Leadex SE 1000W Gold PSU
- Phanteks P400AD w/ 1x Arctic P12 PWM exhaust

Please ignore the cable spaghetti to the left, I swear I'll do better in the future :p
View attachment 235084
View attachment 235085
Also, HD 5970 needs some dusting, but the real star is this little Xeon...

View attachment 235087View attachment 235088

Now, my last X5675 I didn't push very hard at all. It struck me as a good sample, and I'd rather keep as many CPUs in near-perfect condition as possible. But with these Xeons so cheap, and such a wonderful motherboard in the arsenal, of course I've gotta push something.

5.089GHz Suicide Run Validation
- this was the max I could attain on air, not even close to P95 stable. With a custom loop or a great AIO I think 4.8GHz+ is realistic, 1.5v+ just overloads seemingly any air cooler in P95.
4.614GHz Daily Validation
- 4.70GHz was just beyond reach. I needed more voltage, just air cooling can't handle it... maybe I'll try some MX-5 or something to see if that helps any?

The BCLK went higher than I assumed it would, I was booting close to 230BCLK (unstable due to the resulting core clock, didn't try to get it as high as I could). I think I conflated the approx. 205MHz BCLK "wall" on P55 with X58?
Anyway, I'm really happy about that 5+GHz run. That was exactly what I was hoping for, even if it's beyond unstable!

I agree with that, 775 is fun especially with Pentium 4s as they have potential for high clocks with a propriate cooling. :)

Oh I kinda miss my SR-2. But I had to take that system apart as I was not happy with it as a daily.



I also have a R3X waiting for me to be done with 775 stuff. I'll check back when I get to test it.

All right here are benchmarks from my old X58 system and few of the system it self. The zipties on the cpu cooler are for to prevent it to touch the small fans on the chipsæt. It a heavy cpu cooler:p

So this was my X58 last configuration before i sold it last year and upgrade to Zen 3. As you can see in benchmark and configuration, i had my share of fun and exsperiments with X58 over the past 12 years i was on X58.

So this was made my X58 tick.







Benchmark with I7 920 and 980X in no particular order.

As part of one of the fun things was i had a Nvme SSD as boot drive.

So yeah, i have had my share of fun with X58 for sure.

1080 Ti with X58? Damn! I have period correct setup as mine has HD 7970, surprisingly capable card even today with modded drivers.

4120MHz was Linpack stable. Now running at 4140.

Yes the last GPU with my X58 was a GTX 1080 TI. Before that as you can see in benchmark i had GTX 285 in 3 way sli, GTX 570 sli, GTX 660 TI sli, GTX 970 SLI and a GTX 1080 TI as SLI was at that moment begining to meet its end. So i had to go for at powerful single GPU. i still miss SLI, but by today it´s totally dead. So for now i am rocking a GTX 1650 and a RTX 3080 in my current system.

Yeah... I still may get an another 7970 (or 280X as it's the same) for that setup. Just for benchmarks and older games which support SLI/CF.

I may try some HD 4890 CF fun some day as I have two of those.

Yeah... I still may get an another 7970 (or 280X as it's the same) for that setup. Just for benchmarks and older games which support SLI/CF.

I may try some HD 4890 CF fun some day as I have two of those.
I have never owned a AMD GPU or tried crossfire or crossfireX if it´s quad-gpu (two dual GPU card in crossfire). I had always stick to nvidia.

But i dit as well had fun with SLI, all throw as with multi-GPU it was not all ways trouble free.

I've had good (and some bad) experience with both manufacturers' cards, can't say that I like either more. Price/performance is what matters (well, like in hardware anyway).

4890 is a special card to me as it was the first card I had to break 1GHz barrier, though neither of those I have now are stable at 1GHz. But another 7970 might be something for the X58 system as it has beefy enough PSU.

Some industrial fans or something? Looks pretty thicc boys!

Here's mine, sucks that I don't have any spare 120mm fan for exhaust. And I know there's a little kink on the tube from the AIO's outlet, but the temps are still in control. :toast:

MY special card is GTX 1080 TI. This is properly Nvidia´s best card relase in all together. Good amount of vram, desent MSRP, great performance and so on. There has not been a new ti card so far that can claim that title from 1080 TI. Sure 3080 is a nice card, but from start it suffers from insuficient Vram.

Bought mine about an year ago with 300EUR (from an internet buddy so he sold it cheap). A great card indeed.

Sure it is. I can still handle 1080P today.
