I see you been playing Star Citizen I also playing SC sometimes not exactly happy how that game progress but hey still looks pretty for the "eye"....all in all you have good machine there IF it's just a bit faster on a single core but also ain't that bad with that hack and 3,1Ghz on all cores....how good that CPU "feeds"GTX 1070TI?Can you do 3Dmark fire Strike I am a bit curious as my 2650V2(on 3,4Ghz) is just a bit faster on a single core performance in same tests so to know if potentially can "feed"more powerful GPU then my old RX 480.....

I love SC, i have a Reclaimer and a P72. Still waiting to salvage v1.
Steam version 3dmark not starting, i get only an empty white screen window. When i tried an old version i got an error "3dmark encountered a problem" still an empty window. And i downloaded non steam version the setup screen is white. I dont know why. The games, and other benchmarks runs fine.

Try to download their latest SystemInfo first then run normal/free version of 3Dmark Firestrike/Time spy.......

I use the free demo steam version. I updated (removed first, and reinstalled) to the latest system info. I think that cant detect my hardware. (ES cpu or the modded chinese mobo?)
If i run the systeminfohelper from the folder it says "collecting" like for ever.
My Os is very new install, latest build Windows10 Pro.

Hmm...Yeah I guess could be that he can not detect your hardware tho' as I remember even then it should be just blank sysinfo down there but not whole page....

Got the cpu ram and motherboard today did the usual cleaning checked everything that plugged in correctly. The motherboard will turn on then a few seconds later it does the reboot thinking it will work nothing came up on the screen . So did abit of checking about on the motherboard and my heart sank when I saw the ov_cpu pin header was in 2-3 position I'm pretty sure that what killed the cpu as it don't get hot at all without the cpu heatsink and I did check all the rams in different slot. So I have the suspect list of possibly cpu - ram - bios chip last motherboard

I purposely delidded a Xeon in such a way to split the silicon open so that I could examine it for science.
Processor is (was?) a Xeon L5420 SLBBR with the full 12MB of cache.

WOW! You split the dies in half! Impressive. Ladies & Gentlemen, this is what the entire Core 2 Quad based product line looks like inside.

Yeah true! Anything on the 45nm process (Harpertown, Yorkfield, Wolfdale) has the same core layout. Obviously Core 2 Duos just have a single chip in the centre.
The 65nm processors (Clovertown, Kentsfield, Conroe) would also look similar but with a larger die area.

Anyone got Asus p6x58d-e willing to put up images of the board front and back just need to see if I'm missing any sort of caps on this board

What strange about the Asus p6x58d-e without any of the cpu, ram, gpu, cmos battery and bios chip. It turns on then about 5 seconds after it reboots then stay on without beeps. Then when everything is installed it does the exact same behaviour no beep either. The memok button just reboots the whole system does not do any sort of blinking like it said in the manual and videos. I even got the i7 920 D0 that I borrowed from another guy just to see if the board will boot nothing happened. I'm beginning to think it either the bios chip is dead or the board is broken. Can a dead bios chip cause this sort of behaviour?

If anyone has working board can anyone use digital multimeter just to find out what voltages should be so I can compare just to narrow down the problem. Would be great

Struck gold with this purchase. The guy was selling a Gigabyte P35 DS3P with I/O shield, Core 2 Duo, Intel heatsink and 4GB RAM on Ebay. It was "untested" so he was practically giving the thing away for US$20 including shipping, so I took the jump and turns out that all the parts work perfectly fine. Won't be long before it gets the 771-to-775 Xeon treatment.

I already have the same motherboard in my E5450 system and that thing rocks, so this one was a total deal.

Nice! Match those parts with a GTX 760 or 770 and you will have a retro gaming system to be reckoned with. What Xeon are you planning to match it with?

Not sure on which Xeon yet, actually. It's hard to find an LGA771 Xeon that's a better all-rounder than the E5450. Could always give the X3363 a try, I got a couple of those lying around that haven't been used much.

That sucks. At least you got another for a decent price!

That is a solid board,hopefully it's a easy fix ....just FYI even if 2600 Xeons are locked you can still OC via BCLK on good motherboards and those Xeons are usually cost even less....

Benchmark Scores I have old computer, so benchmarks don't have sense, Q6600@3ghz have 47 single core Userbenchmark
Hello, I would like to ask one information about Xeon L5430 (50W TDP socket 775 Xeon ). This information is very hard to find over internet, as this processor is not very used in test, particulary after overclocking (most tests to be found are in server motherboards at stock speeds)

I would like to ask, what's his actual power consumption in idle/load, when you compare it to E5430. (same clock speed, ratios, FSB) If someone measured it, how much it is less.
At idle, I expect almost no differance, so those 30W differance will be only during full load, during Intel LinkPack test?

The second question is, when I want only mild overclock, will it draw still less power AFTER overclocking? Lets say when I overclock it to 3 Ghz, which is E5450, is better to take L5430 and overclock it, or E5450 at stock. Motherboard will be very good, Asus P5Q deluxe, capable of reaching 450-500 FSB. I know, that to overclock L5430 to 3 Ghz, I will have to raise FSB, so it will draw more watts, than stock 333 Mhz FSB. So my question is basicaly, when I don't want to overclock it to 3.8 - 4.0 Ghz (for that is better E5450 I know, because it has high multiplier), is better to take L5430, than E5450? How are savings made, only by lowering Vcore, or actualy by using some special technology? (in other words, L5430 overclocked to 3 Ghz, using 1.20v VCores, will draw same amount of power as E5450@3ghz using 1.20v Vcore? Or less at same clock and voltage?)

I found only this article, when they are directly compared, but unfortunately, they used them on different motherboards and number of DIMMS.

What interested me, is idle power consumption differance, just to note, that those are Dual-CPU platforms.

Anyway, can it have such huge differance from E5450 even in idle? Maybe C-state for E5450 doesn't work? As both have same low multiplier using Intel SpeedStep technology (both downclock to 6x333 = 2Ghz), only higher multiplier is different (8x for L5430, 9x for E5450). How comes, L5430 has so much better power consumption in idle, it's basically 120 Watts!!!
I saw CPU-Z images over internet, and seems, that in Low-power state, both L5430 and E5450 have 6x333 = 2Ghz, and same voltage.
