  1. That's not really a good option for someone who has the whole system because the PSU isn't standard ATX size.
  2. There seems to be adapters for the Z440 and Z640 https://www.aliexpress.com/i/4000125099914.html
  3. HP Z440 Workstation most likely has a proprietary power connector. At least the older X58 based Z400 has. That Asus P6X58D-E is a nice board. I have one in my main PC.
  4. ThinkPad T480 might have problems with thunderbolt controller. https://www.notebookcheck.net/Recent-Lenovo-ThinkPad-laptops-have-a-problem-with-defective-Thunderbolt-Controllers.451061.0.html
  5. Maybe something like i7-620M and i7-640M might work as it's from the same generation, has the same socket and TDP. 4c/8t i7-720QM etc. have higher TDP so they might not work.
  6. Some years ago most games didn't use more than 4 threads but that's not true anymore.
  7. 10 year old X58 LGA1366 6/12t CPU's like the i7-980X and Xeons are still pretty good for most things. When overclocked they are really similar to a Ryzen 5 1600. It's hard to say how much CPUs will change in the next 10 years. In 2010-2017 most CPU's were still 4c/4t and 4c/8t (except HEDT X58/X79/X99)
  8. Does this count as HEDT? I have this SuperMicro X7DWN+ motherboard in one of my servers. It has 2x Xeon E5450 3.0GHz and 40GB RAM. It has 16 DIMM slots and supports up to 128GB RAM
  9. Overclocked i7-860 should still be decent. It would be pretty close to Ryzen 3 1200 etc. If the i7-860 is really that slow for your use, you won't be happy with the Ryzen 3 2200G nor i5-6500
  10. PCIe 3.0 graphics cards does work on PCIe 2.0 motherboards.
  11. Not possible. https://hwbot.org/benchmark/cpu_frequency/rankings?hardwareTypeId=processor_978&cores=2#start=0#interval=20 https://valid.x86.fr/records.html
  12. Okay, that's nice. Maybe I should get 6c/12t Xeons for both of my Z400's. I had my 6c/12t X5670 in my 6 dimm Z400 before I bought my current Asus motherboard. The 6 dimm model support up to 48GB RAM, but I only have 12GB in mine.
  13. I just noticed you have the old HP Z400 with 4 RAM slots. I've read somewhere that it doesn't support 6-core CPUs. I have both the 4 dimm and 6 dimm models but I've never tried a 6-core in the older one so I can't confirm if it works or not.
  14. Yes, you bought the wrong CPU. X series Xeons have locked multiplier so they can't be overclocked on the HP Z400 because you can't change the BCLK. Xeon W3680 and W3690 have unlocked multiplier so they can be overclocked on the Z400. But as far as I know it's not possible to change the voltage so the max possible OC is around 4GHz or 4.1GHz X5690 should still be pretty good CPU even at stock because it has 3.6GHz all core turbo and 3.73GHz 1-2 core turbo.
  15. You probably could ask at www.vogons.org if someone has the drivers
  16. That board is from a HP DL180 G6. I found this thread about a server like that
  17. That is a X58 motherboard so it uses DDR3 and should support up to 48GB with 8GB sticks. Also if you need more CPU power, I'd recommend upgrading to a cheap 6c/12t Xeon X5670, X5675 or something
  18. For gaming I'd recommend some overclockable Xeon or one with high clockspeed. Most newer Xeons have low clockspeed and can't be overclocked. LGA2011 (and older LGA1366) Xeons are pretty good for gaming but the motherboards are quite expensive. Xeon E3 series of CPUs for LGA1150 / 1151 / 1155 / 1156 are pretty much the same as i7 but have support for ECC memory and usually have lower clockspeed.
  19. It's a good thing that CPU usage is under 100% and GPU is at 100%. That means your CPU isn't the bottleneck. Are you sure you have the monitor plugged in to the GPU and not the motherboard?
