    So, in two minds here, bought two X5670's off of ebay, on one hand i got a god tier bin for one of them, on the other hand, the second was DOA, in any case though the working one does 4.5GHz with 1.32v (1.33v ish under load), here's my cinebench and cpuz thing

    yeah beefy cooling isn't an issue :P I have a H100i pro currently though I'm stepping back to a dark rock pro 3 shortly, I've had X5670's running 4.5GHz 1.4v daily on the DRP3 though without any issues so cooling isn't a problem on that front, I think I'm going to grab that pair of X5675's for...

    That's a pretty good X5660, mine needs about 1.35v for 4.2ghz and 1.4v for 4.4GHz and even that's not fully stable :(

    Ahh, was hoping a little higher than that, I've been able to get 4.5GHz out of every X5670 i've had at 1.4v or lower (best i had was 1.32v for 4.5) I tend to push mine pretty much as far as they can go at 1.4v for my daily chips since cooling and ram isn't really a problem and what have you...

    so my X5675 friend fell through, I'm eying up a pair of X5675's on ebay for like 20 quid more and with some dell server heatsink things i can try sell on after the fact, What's a rough average to expect from X5675's? or would i be better off grabbing a pair of W3670s for a little less do we...

    Here, quick question, the X5675 is just an X5670 with 1 extra multi step isn't it? I've not found all that much info on this unfortunately, I'm going to be nabbing this X5675 from a friend of mine but having never played with an X5675 before I'm not sure what the difference is, are they just...

    So, an interesting thing just fell into my lap, friend of mine upgraded to a coffee lake i5 thing (more of a side grade imo but his wife wanted him to get something that didn't use as much power or get as hot) and is selling on his X58 kit and has offered me his X5675, normally I wouldn't bother...

    I've killed a few in the past when pushing for HWbot #1 scores so it's not impossible, but i have awful luck so I don't want to take any chances there, though what I'm likely going to do is get one X5680 for £32 off of aliexpress and one W3670 for £22 both including shipping, the W3670 has a...

    yeah a W3680 is tempting but I could get a pair of X5680's for not much more (60 for a pair vs 50 for a W3680) and I always prefer to keep a pair handy in case I kill one when pushing bench numbers, that and with the X5680 I could be cheeky and grab a few hwbot first places ;P

    some of the quads were nice, i've used an E5640 and a few X5570s in the past and those were nice, for the 12 quid i paid for my X5660 you really can't go far wrong with that, and yeah this platform really was built from the ground up for hex cores too imo, these things fly with hex units, this...

    it really has been a really long lasting platform hasn't it, I didn't start on X58 from new, my first X58 build was back in 2016 but it's always been the cornerstone of fun to overclock and not terribly expensive for the performance even to the point that i still use it to this day, really solid...

    looks like you got the better end of the stick with your X5660 bin, takes me 1.41v to get 4.4GHz, nice chip you've got there :P

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    It's honestly surprising how well this platform has lasted to be honest, im still running my rampage 3 gene with an X5660 at 4.1GHz daily, can do 4.4 daily with 1.4v and 4.6GHz for benching with 1.55v but i need a fan on the heatsink for anything past the 4.1GHz daily clock which doesn't work so...

    Gigabyte X99 UD5 SSD question

    ahh damn, that is a shame, was hoping to keep everything on the board, will look into that though and look into other options also, many thanks

    Gigabyte X99 UD5 SSD question

    Hello all, I am soon to be obtaining a cheap X99 UD5 from a friend, I plan on pairing this with an E5 2630 V3 and 16gb of DDR4 3000MHz (i know it'll run at around 1800MHz or 2133MHz but it's temporary till I can afford a 5960X or so) now, my question regarding the SSD's is in reference to the...
