CPU Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've got idea from a man that I can upgrade my i5-2400 to Xeon with same 32nm and 1155 socket compatibility.

So i got my eyes on 2 chips: e3-1270 and e3-1280, price difference on AlieExpress is about 2-3 USD. I've seen that many people get e3-1270, not the e3-1280.

I got pretty good tower cooler with 4 pipes. I can see only TDP and 100MHz difference.

 

Can you guys explain me and advise me what processor to buy: e3-1270 or e3-1280? Personally I want e3-1280.

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Yes you can upgrade to Xeon 12xx v1 or v2.

1280v2 is so cheap, and just as good as 3770.

v2 is not compatible with my motherboard, different lithography 32nm and 22nm.

Your chipset support both 2nd gen Sandy Bridge (32nm) and 3rd gen Ivy Bridge (22nm). Xeon v2 is based on ivy bridge.

With a bios update this can happen.

Unless the motherboard restrict itself only for 32nm only.

Hmm, you're right man. Thank you. So what's the point of buying v2 instead of v1 on the same clock speed?

better preformace. It isn't all about the clock speeds. It's also about the architecture (pls correct me if im wrong)


please quote me or tag me @wall03 so i can see your response

don't some things look better when they are lowercase?

Lower lithograpy = better temp / higher turbo.

Just looked up some prices on aliexpress. e3-1280 3.5GHz 3.9GHz-Turbo is same price as e3-1230v2 but 3.3GHz and 3.7GHz-Turbo. I can handle 95W TDP i think, cause now I have a i5-2400 95 TDP too, no more than 55C under 100% load. I still don't understand the point of buying v2 version.

it costs twice as much as e3-1280 v1. It's not about raw performance for me. I want a cheap upgrade too. So if we compare, for example e3-1280 and e3-1280v2. I think I should buy a e3-1280 cause anyway i'll be using 1333MHz RAM and it's 2 times cheaper. What do you think?

Yeah, it's should be okay.

So if I want to get a slightly better performance then I should think about v2 Family, right?

Yeah just wait for the next new CPU generation released, like after Zen 3, it will push down the price of lower generation processors.

For long term, i think you should upgrade to DDR4 system.
