You'll puke when I tell you I got that entire setup for *cough* 75 bucks.
Some people don't know crap about hardware. lol
Sometimes they just wan't to get rid of stuff quick, there was someone a few hours drive away from where I am that was selling their SR-2 for $100 cad. They knew it was worth double that at least but they just needed it gone.

I had a days drive to get my SR-2, was worth it I think, 48Gb of ram, two 7970's in it.. What more could a guy ask for?? :) But it was sadly a shed load more than $75!! lol That just makes me sad :(

Nice video :) Makes me want to test out my SR-2 again lol :) Although I did find his overclock a little poor. Managed a score very similar to his in Cinebench, 400Mhz slower on each thread... Kind worrying :(

Well sure.....but also you need to reconsider that he still menage to do all of this +OC&testing in very short period of time.....I guess his result can only get better with time :)

He should have used a pair of 6 core Xeons and a better GPU.
He did used 2x 6core Xeons(X5690)....tho yes I guess he could use even more powerfull GPU then "oldish"GTX 980TI

I'd sure hope so, but he needed to put that unicore up higher and try tighter ram timings, should have made a decent improvement :) It's not always about the clock speed :) I'm surprised the CPUs didn't go a bit further to be honest, I thought they'd be better clockers than that.... 4.42Ghz is a little low I would have said... Maybe he needed more time with the system to overclock and I'm surprised at the temps also.. Touch warm they be.... :(

hi guys, hello to everyone. I bought a couple of days ago an Intel s5520hc and I'm waiting for 2 x5675.actually i'm using with a x5550, but I got some problems about which cpu cooler can use; the s5520hc has its own backplate, so not all the coolers can fit....any suggest about which one could I use? thanks

Welcome to TPU :)

You'll need to give us a little more info than what you have done there, since we've no clue what board you're using :) Give us some more info and we'll do our best to help :)

Welcome to TPU! As Phill was saying, detailed info would be helpful, pictures would be helpful too.

hi guys, thanks for your reply. so, the motherboard that I'm using is this, an intel s5520hc

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/it/it/ark/products/36599/intel-server-board-s5520hc.html



and as you can see has it's non removable backplate, which is a problem to install some cpu coolers (or cooler with clips for example). so I'm looking for a cooler that could fit (and perform well) to cool down my 2 x5675

I think you'll be a little limited with the board and what you can fit too it :(

I've seen that coolers, but I'm looking for a way to install a "regular" 1366 cooler on it...for examples I've read that I can install aio systems like Corsair h60...and I hope to find a way to install some kind of tower cooler

I'd guess they'd work as you'd just attach 'screws' to the parts coming through the board and then clamp them down when you have them in place. It would work just like a standard water block I believe...

Just like this

and as you can see has it's non removable backplate
Actually, those are removable. What's holding them on is double-sided adhesive paper(or something similar). You can take them off if you get a hair-dryer, warm up the backplate and carefully pull the plate away from the board. After they're off, you should be able to fit a wide variety of heatsinks. However, looking at the hole spacing you should be able to mount a good number of heatsinks that have their own backplates. Just use the existing ones. The screw threads are standard so are very likely to be compatible.

that's an interesting info! I thought that the backplate was just attached with some kind of tapes, but I don't force to pull out....using an hair dryer could be the way...thanks!

The CPU LIF retention hold down is attached using the backplate on those so you'll need to find a couple regular 1366 backplates to use them. That way you can use any 1366 cooler you want.
