    I have a dual socket x58 supermicro board but it is eeatx which is a tad bigger than eatx. The upside is that it has two low end xeons and two coolers already.

    How in the world do they come off? It has been a while since I've seen the back of my SR2 but I was pretty sure they were soldered on. That is really cool though that they used to come with multiple mounting options I didn't realize that. Mine has the server mounts and I have been surprised with how many modern coolers are compatible. Both of my noctua air coolers worked and now I have two of the corsair h100i v2 and they fit ezpz too.

    That is really nifty, that is a much better deal than a lot of the test benches I see This made me laugh a little just be cause it is the SR-2 and the backplates can't be removed

    $40 isn't bad at all, does it come with feet and stand-offs and such?

    Good TI-84 emulators?

    There is an official emulator https://education.ti.com/en/software/details/en/FFEA90EE7F9B4C24A6EC427622C77D09/sda-ti-smartview-ti-84-plus

    Nighthawk X10 or X6

    X10 - X6 = $100 X4=$100 X=$25 You get one "X" per $25 so really you are getting four more "X's" Seems like a silly question when the math is quite simple

    Well if either of them need a new home in the future I would be happy to rehabilitate them. Although they seem comfortable in your x58 nature preserve

    That is such an awesome board, if it ever needs a new home you should let me know

    dual xeon cpu rig

    That sounds like a problem with your build in particular. I have used several dual socket board builds specifically on that same platform and I have never had issues.

    Try looking through the bios and see what settings are available for QPI speeds. While supermicro boards do not let you overclock, some may let you adjust your QPI speed which can help improve the speeds that your two cpus can interact which might be the problem.

    What are you known for on the forum

    I can't believe he just called Mr. T, Terry Crews

    LTT open views on Apple are not helpful to us

    LMG is under no obligation to feed your opinion of apple. They are their own company and if they don't want to like apple then they don't have to. I'm tired of seeing people complaining about LMG being "anti-apple." They have their opinion and you have yours. I have heard people argue that they need to be more neutral because they provide tech news. They don't need to do anything. They are a media company that provides entertainment, which often includes tech news. They are under no obligation of any kind to be sensitive to anybody's opinions about anything. It would be nice if all news sources were entirely unbiased but they aren't and they don't need to be.
  13. I got mine pretty low to thankfully. You should use it more! x58 is the true master race
  14. It seems like everyone is getting them these days. They have been dropping in price which is nice. @Zando Bob just bought two of them
  15. @Jumper118 When did you get your new score on the 1366 socket? I was aiming to beat Wezlax soon but then I saw that you upped the bar!
