So I'm slowly working my way to toward 4.25ghz with turbo enabled technically it running 3.91ghz was able to boot and do things before trying r20 it makes the window disappear so it must be vcore hungry. So far the chip I got seem to do well below 1.3v for about 4.20ghz which is pretty good

https://www.ebay.com/itm/QTY-1x-Intel-Xeon-CPU-E5-2697V2-12-Cores-2-7Ghz-LGA2011-SR19H-PLS-READ-/133374406284?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l10137.c10&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true
I always buy all damaged, not working cpu-s because all of them are works*. This cpu pins was dirty, and gets bsod if turbo enabled. I clean them and it is works fine, stable.
If a cpu lost some SMD capacitor most of them are works fine. But if not, there are smd solder stations and a few donor cpus for the repair.
* the only not work cpu for me was a very early ES E5-2695v3 and one E5-4620. So it is like 90%-of them are works
* UPDATE the not working E5-4620 is alive!!! (after a lot of alcohol cleaning) but one memory channel damaged. But it cost me 3.5usd so not a big deal. I know that alcohol solves almost all problems!
Next:
Not a xeon but i have a very old damaged unreleased Extreme edition 9x3 series cpu that works. I bought as a Xeon 5043. Very high multipiler, only 533 fsb. 2 core and HT!

OC-ed to 4.2ghz, but the mobo died....:mad:

Stupid thing, all this time.... thought my 1680 was locked to 4.2, and then found out my offset was UNdervolting it. Never saw that before. Jumped to 4.4, and I think it may have 4.5 in it!
Just ran a battery of stability tests. Wish I had done this before.

I've had a look all over the web and can't find anything referring to [opt.] - I wonder if it means [opt]imized or something?

Must be
Intel® Optane™ Memory
as that the only thing that came to my mind
I found something. It was an optional cpu for the mac pro! So it is possible it was from a mac pro.
I sold it very fast, average profit.

The next xeon that i ordered is two E5-2643v2 ES for 120 usd (60 usd each)
It is an interesting xeon, high clock, high cache, good for gaming.
Early ES, dont have any markings, no sspec.
s-l500.pngs-l5010.png
Performace is like the i7-4960X but lower clock speed, bigger cache.
It is between xeon E5-1660v2 - 1680v2 but it can work in dual socket, so they can be a ryzen killer if two working together. But i only have 2011-3 in dual socket.

Wow! That's a LOW temp for a 1680!! I need to get my hands on one of those. Still sleuthing the interwebs for a good deal!

Are we allowed to advertise sales of hardware here?? I only ask because I found one heck of a deal on an Asus Rampage IV Mobo and want to offload a perfectly fine P9x79 Deluxe (blue and silver colored) and would like to offer it to this group first!

It went down - HARD XD

On a side note, does anyone here have personal experience with Xeon E7 servers?
I think there only rack server motherboards support the E7 series. No desktop verisons. Even chinese didnt make any mobo that supports E7 cpu-s! And that is a big thing!
s1567 is the old E7 Westmere
s2011-1 is the newer E7 but not compatible with the s2011-0 or the 2011-3 because they use different pinout. And use a little different chipset.

I'm currently trying to source a ProLiant DL580 G7, but pricing is tough on eBay. I have most of the other components that I need, but all the sellers will only sell complete systems. Many of the listings are over 400 USD for the lowest spec, and they aren't usually willing to make any alterations to lower price (ie., by removing parts that I already purchased myself). I understand that they need to make a buck, but I may end up killing a major project if this keeps up :shadedshu: I've been planning this server project for over a year now.

Tried computer resellers, recyclers?
Perhaps an E-waste station?

I live in an area where there are very few Recyclers and E-waste stations (at least those that will actually let me get/buy anything from them).

In regards to resellers, that includes Server Monkey, cp*group, and the likes, right? Pricing for those were more stable. I'd just have to hold off on the final purchase for another year possibly, depending on price.

Here's what I have in inventory so far (listed HP parts only, aside from CPU and RAM):
  • 4x Intel Xeon E7-8870's (10c/20t each)
  • 16x4GB (64GB) DDR3-1333 PC3-10600R ECC
  • 1x HP 591199-001 (SPI Riser Board)
  • 1x HP 591196-001 (PCIe Riser/System Board)
  • 1x HP 505908-001 570501-002 (1GB FBWC)
  • 1x HP 468001-001 (Quad-port 1Gbps NIC)
  • 2x HP 438203-001 498152-001 (1200W PSUs)

I know that the following parts are still available for me to purchase:
  • 1x HP 591197-001 583367-001 (CPU+Memory Board/Drawer) [50-75 USD/pc] *
  • 4x HP 591198-001 (Memory Cartridge Moards) [12-15 USD/pc]
  • 4x HP 591207-001 (CPU Heatsinks) [7 USD/pc]
  • 4x HP 591208-001 (92mm Fans) [10 USD/pc]
  • 1x HP Proliant DL580 G7 Chassis [varies] *

At this rate, I might just buy everything but the * items and just wait a few more months. I could also start saving up again for another big purchasing round in 2 months, and hope prices have improved by then. When I first started this, everything was way cheaper than it is now.

  • 1x HP 591199-001 (SPI Riser Board)
  • 1x HP 591196-001 (PCIe Riser/System Board)
  • 1x HP 505908-001 570501-002 (1GB FBWC)
  • 1x HP 468001-001 (Quad-port 1Gbps NIC)
  • 2x HP 438203-001 498152-001 (1200W PSUs)

I know that the following parts are still available for me to purchase:
  • 1x HP 591197-001 583367-001 (CPU+Memory Board/Drawer) [50-75 USD/pc] *
  • 4x HP 591198-001 (Memory Cartridge Moards) [12-15 USD/pc]
  • 4x HP 591207-001 (CPU Heatsinks) [7 USD/pc]
  • 4x HP 591208-001 (92mm Fans) [10 USD/pc]
  • 1x HP Proliant DL580 G7 Chassis [varies] *

At this rate, I might just buy everything but the * items and just wait a few more months. I could also start saving up again for another big purchasing round in 2 months, and hope prices have improved by then. When I first started this, everything was way cheaper than it is now.
