No standoffs or feet, but those are cheap (standoffs are like $5 on amazon). It's meant to be swapped into one of their bigger cases for HPTX support, but I don't wanna spend $300-400+ on a case. Just wanted something better than a cardboard box or desk to set the SR-2 on since breaking it is the last thing I wanna do. This even has a nice cutout so I can still remove the backplates if I need to too

 

Here's the tray only: https://www.mountainmods.com/product_info.php?products_id=568

Tray with PCIe/IO cover thingie: https://www.mountainmods.com/product_info.php?products_id=567 (I was mistaken, it's $80, not $70)

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

I removed them and swapped them with stock LGA1366 ones I pulled of other server boards so I could mount my Cooler Master V6 GTs. They came with a normal set in the box but most SR-2s don't come with those now, they've been lost. The ones that are usually on are the server type, thus I have a couple server coolers for my other SR-2 that only works with one CPU, not worth getting backplates for it since it's not fully working.

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.

Just take the four screws on the CPU clamp off, then that and the backplates come off. Then you stick new ones on and tighten it down.

Helloo can someone help me? 😋 i have a ECS X58B-A ver 1.0 (i know its crap but i was 12 when i build my first pc i didnit know much)with i7 920 3.8 ghz ...welll i was thinking about buying a xeon x5675.

So i googleeddd it and found that  (Only new version X58B-A(V1.1) Support Intel Gulftown Series Processors) what do you think will i have any luck with it ?😂

Well apparently Gulftown = Westmere-EP: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulftown

 

And the 6 core Xeons and i7s are Westmere-EP so you'd be out of luck.

Anybody know of any good dual socket 1366 server boards?

I'm starting to finalize plans for my server, and it just so happens that dual 1366 is required for what I need it to do.

 

I doubt I'd be able to fit an eATX board in my Proliant's case, so I need a server-specific motherboard.

Tyan and Supermicro make plenty depending on what your connectivity and expansion needs are. I bet the consumer motherboard manufacturers also make server boards.

I've seen a few Intel and Supermicro boards on Ebay when I was looking. I'm still considering those.

I really can't imagine how awful these setups must have performed for astronomical amounts of money compared to all the other cheap, fast quad cores of the time in the games available when the SR2 was new. This kind of hardware was held back with like 5870's and GTX 280's then benchmarked against something like Left 4 Dead where it's idea of multithreading was to add the option for it. Which then struggles to use more than 2-3 threads before usage can even be differentiated from idle. I don't think it was even included in the options menu at launch, or maybe L4D was the first game on the Source engine to have it in the menus.

 

I've been trying to tell people higher end, higher thread count stuff is still worth using and as games and software continue to be optimized and designed for efficient multithreading this hardware will actually function better than it did new. Doom is by far my favorite performing game, I wish he gave it far more screen time to show off it's incredible multithreading.

Same reason I don't use Linux, my main games' anti-cheat would get triggered and I'm afraid of getting banned in some of them.

Exactly. I actually Emailed BattleEye. Doubt if it will help, but if all my games played in Linux, I would dump Windows in a heartbeat.

Facts. Linux is just so much smoother to set up and use than Windows, even if you have to manually hunt some stuff down it ends up working much better. A lot lower performance impact too, and since I have an AMD GPU there'd be no problems with drivers. Just sadly it lacks support from pretty much every dev. 

 

And hmmmmmm.... think we should open this up to a general X series chipset thread? There was an X79/X99 one but it hasn't been replied to in over a year. Asking since I just got an EVGA X99 Classified and have an untested 5690X on the way I hope works (if not I should be able to sell it for parts and get back the $100 I paid). I do hope to get some X79 stuff at some point too, but I really should finish my X58 rigs first.

Anybody know of any good dual socket 1366 server boards?

I'm starting to finalize plans for my server, and it just so happens that dual 1366 is required for what I need it to do.

 

I doubt I'd be able to fit an eATX board in my Proliant's case, so I need a server-specific motherboard.

I've seen a few Intel and Supermicro boards on Ebay when I was looking. I'm still considering those.

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.

I can fit anything as long as a standard ATX.

 

Anything bigger has to extend towards the front of the case, rather than the bottom.
