I finally went to the hardware store and bought a power outlet meter to get the power consumption sussed out with these Xeons.
Currently running a GTX650, 4GB of DDR2 and standard hard drive.
Power was measured for the tower only.
These are my results:

Power consumption for E5450 SLBBM at 3.0GHz:
Idle = 57 watts
Cinebench = 113 watts
IntelBurnTest = 157 watts

Power consumption for L5420 SLBBR at 2.5GHz:
Idle = 58 watts
Cinebench = 95 watts
IntelBurnTest = 124 watts

So the power consumption seems to favor the L5420, but clock-for-clock (E5450 is 20% faster) there's no significant difference in efficiency.
My guess is that the higher thermals of the L5420 is from the use of inferior solder due to the cheap price tag when new. Maybe.

I tried 4.4 at 1.325 upt to 1.350 but in R20 the pc freeze or hard reset.
Now is back at 4.2 with 1.295 so is 1.288v.

Damn, silicon lottery strikes again. Still, 4.2ghz@1.288 is very decent.
Thanks. At least is better than nothing i suppose.
I tough that maybe i would need to thinker around more to let 4.4 be stable.
What is annoying are those results at 4.2 .
Is a memory timing issue?

That's what I was thinking. To get 4.4ghz several other settings need slight tweaking.
Tweaking would improve performance even at 4.2 than .
Not gonna mess around without a guide so thanks in advance :D

No worries, happy to help. There actually is a guide for overclocking the X58 platform here on TPU;

I was going to walk you through the settings specific to your motherboard.

I been playing around with the e5450 it currently 3.87ghz at 1.176v ram is 1146mhz seems to hold up good with some freeze once in awhile when coming out of sleep

Having some fun with an X5470 swapped Dell Optiplex 380 ($20). Low end BTX office Mini Tower sold only with 2 core CPU, and 4GB RAM limit due to 2 RAM slots. The G41 chipset allows LGA771 mod, and 8GB DDR3 1066 works just fine. Most Optiplexes have a 95W CPU hard limit, these don't. A Dell Dimension 9150 PSU gains a 6 pin PCIe cable so a GTX1060 3GB was next. The Pentium 4 BTX heatpipe cooler works great also. Delta AFC1512DG fan drops right in (150x50mm 1.8A.)Not much OC available on the Xeon, 3.37GHz. But the GTX1060 OCs nicely. Scored 8115 in Superposition 1080P Medium.
That's up from 7912 baseline. Moved from 1177 ranking to 1159. But still page 25 is page 25 LOL!
But I don't see any other LGA775/771 near it.
Scored 2518 in Heaven with 100fps @ 1080P High setting.
Crashed in Valley at 1080 but ran at 1600x900 OK.
Crashes Firestrike, but 3D Mark11 scores 64% 9714

I turned the CPU fan up to full speed (2500RPM) and the GPU temperature dropped from 84* to 78*C. There are other ways to keep GPU temps down on these, but definitely an airflow issue.
I took the GPU OC back out for now. MSI afterburner doesn't play well with Fiirestrike, or my new GPU drivers suck. Not sure which.

are you getting 4101 error in event viewer related to nvidia crashing?

Just black Fiestrike screen and freezes. Unigine Valley was very ragged also. Decided to call it a day. I don't do any gaming anyway, just benchmarking old Dells for fun.

Yes your score should be a bit better at those speed IF this means something to you my @E5645 is OC around 4,2Ghz and my score in Cinebench R15 is around 950 and in Cinebench R20 close to 2000 points....you can tweak your memory speed/timings QPI link,NB Frequency.....but also do not forget to adjust and speed&up your Win10....GL

Cine R20.png

also I prefer to keep my memory at lower speed but with tighter/better timings

Well signs of freezing and crashing on bone stock pc generally means something is wrong on the hardware or/and software side. Since I been messing with my pc I can get fire strike working all the way from 3.5ghz to 3.87ghz as soon I go above 3.90ghz to 4.02ghz it been tricky to run firestick as it freezes and locked up my pc as I have the ram over clocked to 1186mhz with the fsb:dram ratio 3:4. I keep trying :)

Firestrike is OK at stock speeds. So I guess the drivers are OK. Kombustor runs OK. I have almost no CPU overclock. The GPU OC seems to be the issue. I've had my fun with this $20 Dell, back to web crawling for this one.

Then revert the gpu overclock back a few clocks and the same with vram. Could be the power supply not providing enough power to the gpu.

Been playing around on my PC seems there's some sort of hole in the fsb in e5450 just when I get beyond 440 it just falls flat on it face no matter what voltage I set or ratio or timings I set. At the moment I can play games and fire strike @ 3.98ghz @ 1.176v temps are below 40c on CPU and GPU just touching 43c :)

Hello everybody.

It has been a long time since my last post and the reason is because i took a break from building PCs after my Daughter was born.

In the last few weeks i have been thinking about building a Xeon PC but i am a bit lost about which CPU buy i have 3 in mind but still cant decide that is why i need advices from you guys.

1- Xeon E5-1650 V2
2- Xeon E5-1650 V3
3- Xeon E5-1680 V3

Of course i want to Overclock and the PC is going to be used to play Games.

Any suggestions/advice will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello everybody.

It has been a long time since my last post and the reason is because i took a break from building PCs after my Daughter was born.

In the last few weeks i have been thinking about building a Xeon PC but i am a bit lost about which CPU buy i have 3 in mind but still cant decide that is why i need advices from you guys.

1- Xeon E5-1650 V2
2- Xeon E5-1650 V3
3- Xeon E5-1680 V3

Of course i want to Overclock and the PC is going to be used to play Games.

Any suggestions/advice will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
For me that is 1680 V3 no question about it.....tho' they are still a bit pricey.....

Because the 1680 V3 is still pricey for it's age what about the 1680 V2? it's almost the same just that the V2 turbo boost is slightly higher than the V3

Sure....what ever do the job for you chief but 1680 V2 ain't much cheaper...What about the mobo and cooling?With decent board and cooler those CPU's can OC like crazy......
