Well thought I had pushed my bus oc too far. Os crashed, then wouldn't boot anymore. Got another install up okay, but was having issues accessing the first drive.
Finally noticed drives disappearing in bios. Set clocks to stock. Still happening. So I start pulling sata cables. Evil dam things. One cable bad, and connected to the
wrong port. Swap it over... everything is back to normal. Reset my oc and continue. Started fighting with this yesterday, just fixed now. ARG!
I think the birthday god rewarded me... scary way to start my 60th birthday.

X5650 @ 4.2 ran prime95 for 6 hours stable(small FFT), I think that it's fine. More fine-tuning later, good night fellas! ^^

Cleaned up, pulled wifi, stuck GTX580 in (was to be donated but, shit happens) and got SSD back in.

New project is in the works. Gotta work some overtime for it~ but for now enjoy the 4.5ghz x5675 returning.

That system deserves more than a GTX580. But it's not shabby either.

Oh, right! Didn't think about that number symmetry! :laugh::toast:

Board on the bottom left is an 2011v3. You can guess where this is going.

I forgot this thread exists. I've been doing a lot with Xeons recently.

Starting off with this golden X5680 I got out of a lot of 7 chips:

Xeon X5680 - R15 - 5011MHz.png5400MHz Xeon X5680.pngX5680 Bench.png
All-core:

Then the majority of my time has been spent on the PC-DL Deluxe with the 130nm Xeons.

Nice...Is it 24/7 stable on that speed?Can it survive Cinebench R23 run?
It's only bench stable. 4.8GHz is 24/7 stable. I haven't tested to see if leaving SpeedStep on and having it turbo up to 5GHz would remain more stable, but it was the case with a previous X5680 which could do 4.6GHz all core and 4.8GHz boost at 1.53v.

1.53v? I should try that.

Cool....4,8Ghz on X58 platform is also awesome...you got a golden sample there....it's a keeper for sure.....

Starting off with this golden X5680 I got out of a lot of 7 chips:
I have a question, I pulled my Asus P6T Deluxe V2 with the X5670 out of my Alienware case, for a ASRock i7 4790 build. I saw here locally a person selling some of the X5690's for around $20 us, is this a good buy? I do plan on buying another ATX case one day and putting the Xeon/ Asus build back in it. My X5670 was running @4.3 GHz, would I benefit any at all by buying one of the X5690's?

I paid $8/ea for the X5680s and was impressed that most were 4.6-4.7GHz capable. I think these higher SKU Xeons do have maybe a small bin advantage, but it's hard to qualify that statement with only these 7 samples. I would say that it's likely easier to find the higher limit on these due to their higher multi, so you aren't running into FSB limits before the chip itself tops out.

Should you pay $20 for the X5690? Tough call. It's got the flagship status regardless of how well it clocks which is nice. So maybe.

Dusting out my old Tyan S7050, used to be my workstation board with a couple of E5-2667 V2 and 128GB of ram till I replaced it with a Supermicro X10SRA and a E5-2690 V3. The hardware that used to be in this board sits on the Dell R720XD LFF below also retired.
