I managed to buy an Asrock X79 Extreme11 Motherboard on the cheap so I should be able to have a play with that soon after it arrives.
While I won't be doing anything as extreme (pun intended) as you guys, I should be able to push my E5-2650 a bit higher with some luck.
I'm also looking at buying an E5-2680 V2 for the increased core count and higher base clock.
I'll be very interested to see the results of those CPU's!

Speaking of here's results at lower mhz but tighter timings...these cpu's choke at higher frequencies if you try to push memory speed too high, I can go over 125bclk easily @ 2400 mhz but @ 2666 mhz even with looser timings at least so far it wouldn't budge. This was my base result @ 125 bclk with memory. I'm still working on what I can squeeze out of it for timings and raising BCLK to see what the max stable result is.

I'm surprised it takes that much voltage....especially if you're not pushing memory much I'd bet you can keep it stable with less that mobo is very similar to mine great board.

However I have my LLC set super high so voltage increases to chip under load do you allow yours to droop? That would make a big difference.

So when I tighten timings and go down mhz'wise to 2426 on memory I easily keep stability at 130 fsb after lowering multiplier. The numbers aren't bad but at least for bandwidth etc they still are bit lower than what I got at 2666 mhz so I'll have to see if any amount of tweaking will get it done at 2400 mhz memory speed.

Dam, wish I could find a windfall and get me some fast ram! Sure would love to see what my 1650 v1 could do against that....
This is what you can do with it....
I actually have 32GBs of DDR3-2400 I need to get rid of ;)
Here's the RAM you could do it with!

Little things make huge difference, had to up VTT voltage and VCCSA to be lower because under load they droop differently and need to be as close as possible to matching and works wonders! Now I'm able to tweak the BCLK Nice!

I only have 16GBs left. Sold half to a friend as part of his upgrade

Well I got the E5-2680 V2 installed in the X79 Extreme 11 Motherboard and it runs beautifully after straightening a couple of pins in the socket.
One issue I have though is Ram speed wont go above 1866 and I have 2 x 4Gb sticks of 2133.
Not sure what the issue is as the board's manual says it takes up to 2400MHz Ram (oc).
I have tried Auto, and manually setting the timings of 11-11-11-30 but no change, I have tried the XMP setting of 2133 also.
I have set the strap to manual so I can raise the base clock, and have the CPU at 3200 from 2800GHz.
I don't want to push it higher yet until I get the Ram running right.
Anyone familiar with the Asrock Bios settings want to chime in here?

Nice, I almost bought an Asrock a few times but closest I got was my Asus board I currently have and even though they are related companies I believe Asrock has it's own bios format etc. However, just basing it off my one sample 1680v2 I'd be very surprised the CPU wouldn't do at least 2666 with the right RAM, even both of my 3900 series 32nm chips did 2400 mhz fairly easily once I figured out the settings. I'm only nervous about the bent pins because that's what I had wrong with my first Rive board and it never did quad channel due to the pins being messed up. So first thing I'd do is check to make sure it's running in quad channel....also the 125 mhz strap works best with mine for higher RAM speeds it won't even boot at 2666 mhz at 100 mhz strap.

i had the x79 ex9 and with 4x2gb psc from corsair i could get 2133 after a lot of fiddling(i think it was 1 timing on auto too low like trrd on 3)
2400mhz was not reachable. this sticks did 2666 cl8 on z77

I have a 2680v2 and I have the same problem. I have not seen anyone go beyond 2000Mhz with a Xeon 26XX CPU.

Wow, if that's the case I'm very glad I didn't go that route and got the 1680 I was considering more cores or less cost with the 2x series.

Interesting, so it was a 9x series processor? I assume ex9 means that, I just saw a 9x series processor on ebay the other day after the 2680 talk here and I wondered if the 9x series also had issues with memory.

Extreme 9 version of that Motherboard.
I've also doubled the amount of RAM in my system to 16Gb now as I was unable to boot my previous Z77 system with all 4 sticks in place.

sorry for not being specific:
like caring1 said -extreme 9 model tested with 3930k+later 2670v2
and on both 2400 not possible with different ram chips ! 2133 after lot of work-really a lot.
