Mmmmm.......... here's an actual.
My 5660 on decent air (Thermalright True and 110 cfm Scythe fan).
Tough bench. Will run the processor hot quick.
Processor will do 4.3-4.4 on any other bench. Same temps and voltage.

Anything over 1.4-1.45v seems pretty high to me unless you're doing something sub-ambient.
Love that test :D :D

I ran my 920 @ 1.45vcore but that was for 4.54Ghz or so and that was 24/7, temps were decent.. Even with LinX running I think I might have maxed out around the 80C ish mark... I can't remember exactly but it was stable enough that it passed 20 rounds of the test so I was happy and I got my EVGA badge lol :)

I can't use Xeon's in my EVGA Classified boards (759 and 762) as they are the original revisions which is a shame.. Lesson there for buying as soon as they released... :( I need to get my X58A-OC running and see if I can clock some of my X56xx CPUs :)

I'll have to get HWBot; I'd bet my experience will follow yours.

Some programs load the processor way worse than actual usage, and run fine; but some programs ( handbrake) make stuff crash, that the benchmarks don't.
Found that with Prime or Orthos... Would run for 24 hours or so, wouldn't crash. Run WCG (Boinc) crashed work units inside of 30 seconds... Was annoyed and surprised at the same time :(

You always say you love Intel??...... :D :D

I guess that the 26xx range of CPUs are not overclockable at all as they are meant for servers or dual socket motherboards for desktops... The 16xx seem very expensive :(

You can B-clk overclock the 26xx chips; but I didn't have much luck with it.

There are people using 233 bclk on those chips.
That did Not work for me, however. :)

Money isn't a problem but to pay over 300€/400€ for a 2013/ 2014 CPU i don't think it's a good deal, at this point better to get an i7-7820X + Asus WS X299 PRO

As you've stated tho, to pay that much seems a waste or not a good value for money... I completely understand :) The V2 CPUs I had cost me £83 posted I think (I think that's right...) and they where a bargain..

That said, I've a X299 myself and I'd love to track down a decent CPU for it.. I'd love to go for a 7980XE and in the light of the amazing and awesome CPUs that AMD have released recently, hopefully that might help with the pricing of these CPUs.... I don't want to waste a £1000 on a CPU that I know if I spent another £300 on or so, I'd get even more performance.. There are limits to my collecting crazy side :)

I haz a sad; my upgrade to a Xeon 5080 from a Pentium D 820 is not working.

It's not a supported processor, but it's similar to a 3.7GHz Extreme edition with 1066fsb that IS supported, so I thought I might get it to boot.

It didn't do anything, so I'm thinking it's not going to fly. :)

I had to do the 771 to 775 mod to adapt it, so IDK if that's an issue either.

I'm going to keep going with it; I had to swap a bunch of caps on this mobo, so I'm swapping back to the 820, and making sure everything is good before I try again.

It's a P5wd2 Premium Mobo; no, it does not support Xeons, but the 5080 is one of the weird dual chip versions, like the Pentium D820, so I thought there's a chance.

Suggestions/Ridicule requested. :)

I've found an i7-7820X for 350€ and an i9 9820x for 460€ both sellers accept offers, my main concern is that both CPUs are power hungry.

That sucks man..

Ah, I think that's your problem. The pin-outs for Pentium4/Smithfield cpu's were slightly different from the Dempsey based Xeons. The 771->775 mod likely doesn't work the same way, if at all. Additionally, the 5080 was a 65nm die whereas the D820 was 90nm. IIRC, they needed two different chipsets.

I'm going to keep going with it; I had to swap a bunch of caps on this mobo, so I'm swapping back to the 820, and making sure everything is good before I try again.

No ridicule. If you got the Xeon cheap or free than it was worth a try, but unfortunately the chipset on that board will not support Dempsey CPU's. It's literally chipset incompatible as the 955X was not 1066FSB capable. Even if you flashed the micro-code into the bios the chances of stable operation(if it boots at all) are nil.

D940's or D950's are not that expensive and would be a good upgrade from the D820.
They're ancient, but an upgrade is an upgrade. And at $13&$8 it's a cheap upgrade.

I've found an i7-7820X for 350€ and an i9 9820x for 460€ both sellers accept offers, my main concern is that both CPUs are power hungry.
They are power hungry and need beefy PSU's, but power profiles properly configured can mitigate some of that. Both are excellent CPU's though.

I am guessing that you really like Intel because for just a bit more $ you can get new Ryzen 3900 that will eat both of those CPU's for breakfast + it's waay more power efficient.....

I wonder if there's another couple CPUs that might be of use to you.. I was hoping that the second hand market of these CPUs would drop the prices considering the fact that the 10980XE has been released for half the price of a 9980XE... I do hope I can find a decent 7980XE at some point but I'm definitely in no rush for it and certainly not willing to pay through the nose for one considering the power of CPUs elsewhere :)

I was thinking some of the higher core counted models if they will do what you want :) I'm not sure of the prices of any of the 7 or 9 range at the moment, I've dared not to look else I'll end up wanting to get one and I'd rather get some other bits first lol

My dad's current employer gave him ten retired 3TB WD Red drives from their datacenter, so I've put five of them in my server running in RAID 5. This replaces the single 8TB WD White I had in it.



I lucked out since the board I got for the server just happens to have six SATA ports. I haven't seen too many other ITX boards with that many.



Copying 4TB of files over gigabit Ethernet is a lot of fun...

Very nice score there :D:D I've had some WD Reds since 2015 and they have been rather reliable as they are left on 24/7, I'm really impressed with them :) Thankfully I've moved some data about and got some more storage in my servers, like yourself, copying 10Tb or so across, not so fun :laugh: :

But still, very nice amount of storage there :D :D What do you put on your Plex server? I mean by that, 1080P or 4k rips? :)

I just found cheaply(110€) and ordered one of these

IMG_5235.jpg

It comes with the I7-3820 in it but I am planning to put some Xeon in it ASAP.....
So far I am thinking about 2650 V2...or maybe even I7-4930k....both are 22nm CPU's....4930k is a bit more expensive but It's OC like crazy from other hand 2650 V2 is cheaper have more cores(8c/16t)but is locked....will see still searching not in a hurry..

A 1680 will give you 8/16 cores, unlocked.

A 1650 I'm using, will run 4.6GHz cooler than a 3930k. 6/12 cores.

The 2650v2 I have is 10/20 cores, but at 2.6GHz, and I didn't have much success with BCLK overclocking, although other people do.

Maybe you have 2650 V3 that's the one with 10 cores.....anyway yeah 2650 V2 is on 2,6Ghz turbo 3,4 and I am curious with that speed if is it going to be enough to push some good GPU?
Yeah I will LOVE 1680 V2 but they are still very expensive...

Ah, it's a sr19Y chip, a e5-2650L v2.


I'd forgotten. 2.6GHz was as far as I got overclocking it, lol.

You can get 2.1GHz on all cores pretty easy, but going up from there was hard.

I got it for $40, so I may eventually get a cheap mobo for it. It won't game, that's for sure.

Very nice score there :D:D I've had some WD Reds since 2015 and they have been rather reliable as they are left on 24/7, I'm really impressed with them :) Thankfully I've moved some data about and got some more storage in my servers, like yourself, copying 10Tb or so across, not so fun :laugh: :

But still, very nice amount of storage there :D :D What do you put on your Plex server? I mean by that, 1080P or 4k rips? :)
Mostly 1080p rips, 4K Blu-rays are expensive and I've only bought two so far, whereas I've amassed quite the collection of regular Blu-rays. I also backup my GOG games onto it and just use it as a general storage device.

Progress on the transfer after 16 hours...



Is the slower speed because of the array? I would always get transfer rates of 85MB/s when it had a single drive, but now it bounces between 0 and 65, averaging at 30MB/s.

Yeah just checked 2650L V2 have base clock 1,7Ghz Turbo 2,10 so I guess that was also your max OC possibility via BCLK.....from other hand "normal" 2650 v2 have base clock 2,6 Ghz and turbo-boost on 3,4Ghz so I keep seeing some videos and most people easily doing all cores on 3ghz not sure if it's possible to do more via BCLK OC.....
