Pick up a 32nm 6 core Xeon for the low temp Overclocks. You should be able to get better single core while picking up another 2c/4t at the same time.


Asus Sabertooth X58, Xeon X5680 @4.0Ghz, NZXT Kraken x61, 24Gb Klevv 1600mhz, MSI GTX 1080 Armor,

Seasonic SSR-550rm, Toshiba 1TB HDD, Silicon Power 120Gb SSD, Rosewill Stryker M

 

Dell Optiplex 790, i7-2600, 16GB, Gigabyte Windforce GTX 960 4GB OC, Corsair CX550M

You quoted the wrong person, I have dozens of Xeons sitting around here xD


Xeon e5649@4.4 GHz on Asus Rampage II Extreme or Gigabyte x58a-OC (whatever I feel like to set up at a time) , 6x4 GB Kingston HyperX 1600, Gainward GTX 670 Phantom, Samsung 840 Evo 240 GB, BeQuiet L8 530W

Also did some more testing with my daily CPU again - damn, this thing has to be one of the best, if not the best x58 Xeon I've had in my hands, despite already being degraded by now:

- max BCLK 269.65 under air (degraded to 268)

- max daily-able BCLK 227

- 4.4 GHz stable at ~1.32V (I think in Winter I'm gonna go for 4.5 at 1.4)
- uncore stable at 3.9

- cinebench goes through at 4.8 GHz under air

I really like mine with the 24/7 OC of 4Ghz. Mine is my main rig and I've already cooked one X5680 @4.2Ghz. At 4Ghz the x5680 is a really nice general computing CPU that has played any game I've played really well.

Getting my old Abit IP35-E / X5460 a new house. The Phanteks P300 looks great in white, and I really look forward to get the build going. 

Waiting for a Be Quiet System Power 9 650W, a CM Masterliquid ML240L RGB and a used 970 4GB. This beast just managed 30-50fps in Wildlands with a 1060 6GB. 1440p, Ultra Textures etc etc. Turning "shadows" to medium and "level of detail" to low made the biggest difference I could notice. Actually a very enjoyable and (mostly) stutter free experience. Tho the cores were pretty hammered at 100% usage :)

My venerable Asus p6x-58d premium with a xeon w3690 (6 core 12 thread), running at 4.2 ghz nice and quiet will be replaced tomorrow.

I got the motherboard on release (was in Taiwan for work at the time), and intially had a i7-920 on it before grabbing a 2nd hand xeon off ebay donkeys years ago.  The system has been bullet proof and up until recently, everything looked more of a side grade/downgrade rather than an upgrade for a stupid amount of money.

Spectre/Meltdown patches did seem to hit it a bit performance wise, especially around disk access, but the main reason for upgrading was the lack of USB 3.0 ports and the limited PCI bandwidth

And M2 nvme drives.   Got a an amd 1920 tr turning up tomorrow with a couple of nvme m2 drives (512gb for os/apps, 2tb for steam library and elite dangerous) so will have fun building the new system over the weekend.

Not sure what to do with the x58/xeon combo though. They still work great (wouldn't suprise me if they kept going for another 8 years); I already have my old e3-1220 running as a pfsense router.  Maybe turn it into a NAS? (can never have enough storage!)

My X58 boards have USB3, but I also use a pcie-card for the chassi connectors. Haven't really checked the transfer speed, but games load and run fine from an SSD with a USB/SATA cable tho. Not sure about nvme m2, but there should be info on it in this thread.
