Hi guys , Today i finally got everything working despite i discovered 2 rams got damaged and the xeon e5 1650 v2 doesn't wanna post.
Apparently when i didn't knew about my og motherboard was faulty it got shocked .
The motherboard boot but i get cpu led and doesn't do any beep so rip 1650v2.
As a backup i'm using a Xeon e5 1620 v1 at 4.3ghz .
I will post some benchmarks in the next days .

My E5 1680 V2 showed up about 20 minutes ago. I'll be installing it in my Sabertooth X79 this afternoon.

X79 & 1680 V2 has been my fav upgrade for a long time.

My 1620-0 is about to get relegated to backup, really a great CPU but I'm giving a R7 2700 a try since they more or less are giving them away.

Building a 8c/16t Mini ITX system for peanuts...

Prices on Ryzen2/mb/ram combos have killed the X58/X79/X99 HEDT Xeon value path. I was going to upgrade the kids X58/w3680 systems to X79/1680V2, but there's just no point unless you already have the gear or at giveaway prices.

I have an X5690 ES, I've had it for a decade I think.. Anyways, I have some good ram that I cant exploit. I have some Super Talent Chrome Hypers, Some G.Skill BBSE, and some OCZ PSC. I cant really do anything with them, so I was thinking about getting a W3690, or W3680 since I hear you get access to all of the mem multis. In this stage of the game is it worth it? Or should I just say forget it and buy the 2600X in my Amazon cart for under 150 CND with free Prime shipping?

W3690 is 46 US shipped.

Edit:

Comes with Wraith cooler I think.

:D

So I get 2 more sticks of ram that I found cheap and now I can occupied all 8 slots in my X79-Beauty Sabertooth,also I decided to OC RAM a bit and tighten memory timings.....all in all not bad my overall results improved with 1507mhz and 9-9-9-28 timings,when I tried 1806mhz could not get all my memory to work,will see I will try later and play again more with the timings&ram speed...
Here some of the new results with my Xeon E5 2650 V2 (OC 3,4Ghz all cores/ turbo 3,8)

I picked up a W3680 for $60 CAD off of ebay, that is what I got running in my home theater, light gaming and NAS computer right now (Dell T3500). Its a solid processor and a great upgrade at a low cost IMO.

I love X58 and that is a nice CPU even without OC have still solid speed at 3,6 turbo....but with the good mobo can easily hit 4+Ghz on all cores..

I was able to test it with a boost to 4.1ghz with the throttlestop program. Only reason why I dialed back was because due to placing a new PSU in the system, I cannot hide the cables behind the motherboard (I used an older silverstone PSU I had laying about as I needed to add a GTX 970 3.5GB model) and thus the cables get in the way of wanting to place the ram shroud so the air flow is rather very poor now in the case. I am meaning to fix it but I dont feel like shelling out money I dont have at the moments especially after xmas. But be assured, I will be fixing that beast up and placing a new GPU in it eventually so I can play newer games on the big screen. I got a video on youtube of playing Resident Evil 2 Remake with it.

Ohh sure I know how good X58 6 core Xeons can be,I still own one of those tho I am planing to flip it as I get myself X79 platform now....but yeah my Xeon was working on 4,2Ghz paired with RX 480 and before with the GTX 970 I never have any problems in games and most of the time GPU workload was at 100%...so no bottlenecking there and If you planing to play on 2k or 4k screens then this CPU's are your last concerns as the GPU is most likely to choke way before this CPU.....I believe that those Xeons when they are properly OC can push to the limits Vega 56/64 or GTX 1070/1080 without the problems...

Well I think that MB in Linus video might hold back system. I am thinking of those xeons and T5610 as my new built (all purpose PC incl gaming).

Even better if you can find something like Asus Z9PE-D WS....tho' they can still be a bit pricey......

Asus costs almost as much as entire T5610 and I do not see any big advantages over Dell (Did I overlooked sth?)

I recently replaced my 850w PSU with a 650w PSU in my Xeon system. I must have hurt the PSU long ago when it was new while folding with overclocked 570s and the CPU. Now I have all the stability lol. Because of that, I mostly ran it at stock for the last couple of years, unless I used it to bench a little. Now I can run an overclock on my CPU, GPU and game at the same time lol. But even at stock it is a pretty smooth CPU. Maybe its the 6 cores, maybe its the cache? Its good to have her back either way. There is some cable chaos atm.. main cables are too short to manage The PSU is probably 12 years old, but I only used it for about a year. I had to upgrade because I needed 8 pin plugs, luckily my 970 only takes dual 6ers, which is good cuz that's all she's got captain! :D

Hello again. Long time no see. Life got in the way a bit and i havent had my computer running in 6 months in between selling the gpu, moving house a few times getting a proper job and such. Anyway im craving getting going again but this time small size isnt just something nice and cool but necessary for me (not gonna work with my hulking great zalman case and current x58 system.

I wanna reuse as much stuff as i already have and i have been thinking about those shuttle XPC cube things. They made them in x58 and x79 and such but does anyone know if they can have a xeon dropped into them and work with a bit of bios updating and maybe a bit of gentle modding?

Wow its not actually been that long since i stopped by. Im so busy these days it felt like ages D:
