General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

I found this combo, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R + i7 930 for $100. I'm planning to swap the cpu to Xeon X5650/5670/5675, and OC it to 4+GHz. Is it a good mobo for overclocking?

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-X58A-UD3R-rev-20#ov

Gigabyte tends to make good boards. I've not heard of too many problems overclocking on them.

 

This is actually the same model Linus and Dmitri had in Scrapyard Wars 6, so that's also cool.

Hello X58 thread! I recently scored most of an X58 sytem. 

 

This is what appears to be an X58 Pro-e from MSI. Oddly enough it came out of a medical computer but I won’t be elaborating on that any further. 

 

What I got:

i7 950

6GB of 1066 DDR3 in tripple channel

MSI X58-Pro E

MSI 450 GTS

 

What I want know is if I can do is slap an i7 970 Gulftown into this board. Its clocked a bit slower but it would give me two more cores. Maybe with a bios update? I want to turn the clocks up with this system and get some more performance out of it. Don’t have a damn clue what I’m going to use it for yet. 

 

I’d also like to know if the W3690 is overclockable with just fiddling with the multiplier. I like the 950 thats in there right now but after having my 3960X in my main system for so long I want that 6 core life for this system too. 

 

Planning on doing a mini budget build with it tomorrow and getting it off the test bench.

In my experience the multiplier is usually maxed by default, I use the BLCK from there. I'm running an i7 950 at 1.4v/3.9GHz in my EVGA Classified board right now, my W3670 gets here today and I plan to OC that (can't use X series xeons which I have a bunch of because it's a v1.0 board, not 1.1 or higher). So I can let you know how the 6 core W series Xeons go tonight. And I'd update the BIOS for sure, I always do that on my boards to make sure I'll run into the least compatibility issues possible. 

 

What cooler are you planning to use btw, and how far do you want to push it? You can safely run 1.4v, 1.45 if you're brave, and most 6 cores can hit 4.5Ghz in that voltage range, IIRC some do it lower. You'll need a beefy cooler though. I have a Gammax 400 with two Noctua Industrial 2000rpm fans sandwiching it, and it'll keep my quad core around 80 or below in stress tests, 76C or so max in gaming.

I just watched the old NCIX tech tips video on X58 overclocking video and..... hoooooo boy its nothing like x68 or x79. This is going to be a cliff of a learning curve. Right now I've got a 6 heat pipe 92mm heatsink on it with a high rpm ball bearing fan of some sort. This whole system as is save for the power supply came out of a medical computer and I've put no money into the build so far. This weekend I'm pulling a case I got in a bundle out of storage, and I have an EVGA 750 watt power supply for it.

 

Quick googling will show that a 970 will work with latest BIOS- so thats what I'm going to take care of tonight, and then I'll order either the w3690 or the i7 970 after the bios is up to date.

 

I'll get the xeon if they overclock just the same as the i7s do. How far do I want to push it? On the 970 if that's what I get I'd like to do 3.8 or 4 Ghz, on W3690 I'd like to do 4.3

 

The W3690 is about $90 on ebay and the i7 970 is about the same but as far as I can tell the W3690 is an i7 990X with a different sticker- so if the xeons aren't locked down in any way for overclocking I'd much rather get the xeon.

Yep, I don't know of a single X58 Xeon that's locked. If your board supports dual QPI link CPUs, go for an X5675. Those are usually the best binned 6c/12t Xeons, along with the X5890 but that's usually overpriced. They're usually slightly better binned i7s with different base clock speeds and multipliers. If you get something like an X5650 with a lower multiplier you have to rely more on the BLCK to up clocks, vice versa for ones with higher multipliers. I forget the multiplier on the X5650, IIRC mine maxed at 20 or something, my i7 950 and higher clocked Xeons go to 23 or so, then you up the BLCK and such for moar GHz. X5675 is pretty much the best price/performance CPU you can get. the W3670 should be a good choice too if your board doesn't support dual-QPI Xeons (X and E ones), the W ones are literally just i7s but usually cheaper. I got mine for $40, so not that bad at all. Can't wait to see how it OCs tonight.

Good to know. Googleing around doesn't seem to show the X series xeons as supported for this motherboard so I'm probably going to get a W3690

Bois seem to run X series Xeons on them: 

https://www.overclock.net/forum/5-intel-cpus/1635374-overclocking-help-xeon-x5660-msi-x58-pro-e-mobo.html

 

Though apparently they don't OC as well as the E series ones, IDK about the Ws but they're just an i7 branded as a Xeon so I assume they'd OC the same as any 6 core i7.

Goody. I'll stay away from the X series xeons and just nab one of the 3690s. Ballin with dat extreme edition on a budget.

Yep. I have that board with an X5675 and have gotten 4.7ghz stable on an AIO liquid cooler (i.e., no custom loop).

@Crunchy Dragon What I will say is that this computer led a very VERY interesting life before I yoinked it. What it was being used for was automated CAD/CAM. Needless to say its woefully underpowered for what it was doing. The company that sells the whole ecosystem designed them to go by model year and not by actual specs, which is fine, but the previous systems were i7 920s and 250GTS's and holy balls. If THIS computer was as slow as it was for the software they were running I don't even want to know how it was on the 250 GTS and the 920, let alone the model before that one with the Core 2 Quad and 8800 GTS. AFAIK last I checked the current systems that company was pumping out are X99 and have a Vega 56. much much faster.

I have a GTS 250, I wouldn't dare run anything more than a display off of it in this day and age.

The RX480/RX580 blower cards look great to me. When the RX480 first came out XFX sold a bunch of them with their own backplates and they were crispy.

 

I got a 1080 Ti FE for my main system though and its miles ahead of AMD in the sex appeal department.

Image result for vega 64

vs

Image result for 1080 ti founders edition

 

That being said EVGA was making a 2080 Ti with a 1080 Ti founders cooler on it. 

 

Can't find it anywhere though. PNY and Zotac still seem to be making much cheaper blower coolers for them still so that's nice. Unless you're running open air cooling in a chilly room the cooler doesn't seem to make a lot of difference to me. @bcredeur97 and I have systems within margin of error- 3960X's at 4.3Ghz and 1080 Ti's. His is a tripple fan cooler and mine is a founders. We got within a few points of eachother with the Unigen Superposition benchmark at max 4k settings. His vram is better and my core is better.

AMD's Vega 64 Limited Edition, and Vega Frontier Edition coolers are some of the nicest I've ever seen though. I had a Vega FE before, freaking gorgeous. @Troika has it now, I have a Radeon VII (using my 1080 Ti rn though since the assassin's creed games crash with my RVII for some reason, will move the RVII back once I finish my custom open air build).

I was running a 580 SLI system for a while open air and loved it. Had custom bios all done up. If I had more space in my room I'd ne very tempted to do 580 sli again with this X58 system. Would be nice.

oooo that'd be nice. I'd love to SLI some classic cards on a rig that's not my main and just fiddle with them. I tried SLI 1080s and they never really played well with my games, other than Battlefront 2015 which is probably the most well made game I've ever played for just performing well on all sorts of hardware. Even aaaalmost got it running on a laptop i5's iGPU once, couldn't get a steady 30fps though.

 @bcredeur97 and I have systems within margin of error- 3960X's at 4.3Ghz and 1080 Ti's. His is a tripple fan cooler and mine is a founders. We got within a few points of eachother with the Unigen Superposition benchmark at max 4k settings. His vram is better and my core is better.

I can confirm this. His is def better though considering how hard I worked for the scores I got and iirc he just kinda tried a few things and was able to beat it slightly pretty easily.

 

I do like how quiet my EVGA cooler is though.

Yeah you were fiddling with gpuboost curve. I kinda just maxed all the fans in my system, pulled the side panel and opened my window- kept moving the slider up. Had to let the card cool down to 31*C between each run though or it would throttle. That was making me chuckle.

Was totally sandbagging the entire time. I had the winning score like three crashes in advance until you took another 20 min to beat me by like- 20 points or something like that after I had already buttoned up my rig and shot the window. Super interesting how much better your vram is.

I also had my side panel off and a box fan XD
