Intel® Xeon® Bronze 3104 Processor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have the change to get my hands of a replaced Intel® Xeon® Bronze 3104 Processor (replaced in an academic workstation to increase the computational power)

 

Do you guys have any suggestions on what I could build using this CPU as a base?

Find a server chipset (C something) that works with this CPU first, then search for a board that has this chipset. Otherwise this CPU is just a paperweight.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

That chip would serve for computing, so you may want to get a good CUDA card, or you can just.. do things with it. haha

Given the cost of a current gen server motherboard (LGA 3647) it's not even worth recycling that chip for home use. You would get better performance per dollar buying an entirely new motherboard and CPU than you would buying just a board for that CPU.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Id probably not try to use it. Its a 1.7ghz 6 cores without ht or turbo. A i3 is faster and is much cheaper. These really only exist to make the base price for servers and workstations cheap and don't really make sense if you care about cpu performance at all. 

 

The cheapest board I can find on newegg is about 240 for a open box, and you can get a i3 + board for cheaper and that would be faster aswell.

If you don't already own a compatible motherboard, I hate to say, the processor is basically worthless. 6 core 6 thread means no Hyperthreading, and it's really more of a low-end chip to begin with. 


Please, take everything I say with a grain of salt. I'm not a professional, just a moderately knowledgeable nerd.
