  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. You probably could ask at www.vogons.org if someone has the drivers
  5. That board is from a HP DL180 G6. I found this thread about a server like that
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. The X38 chipset would be great for overclocking but the HP xw4600 doesn't support overclocking.
  10. Overclocked X5650 would have similar single core performance to a stock i5 4th gen. but of course in multi-core the X5650 is a lot faster.
  11. Yeah, the one on top is a SuperMicro. It has X7DWN+ motherboard, 2x Xeon E5450 3.0GHz, 40GB RAM and 6x 500GB HDDs. I'm planning to upgrade it to 64GB RAM, it does support up to 128GB but the bigger sticks are too hard to find (and expensive). The bottom one is a Dell PowerEdge 2950 III with 2x E5420 2.5GHz, 32GB RAM and 4x 146GB 15K SAS HDDs
  12. It probably wouldn't be too far from 8 hours with the slower 1.3GHz CPU, standard 65W battery and additional 40W(?) battery. Some reviews mention almost 5 hour battery life on BAPCo MobileMark 2002 battery life test with the normal 65W battery and 1.6GHz CPU.
