I noticed today that the Xeon E5 2660 is selling for $350-$400 apiece if you buy a spicy variant or scoop up a good deal on an ebay auction. This cpu is an 8 core, 16 thread, 2.2ghz nominal, 3ghz max turbo, 20M cache, 95W CPU. I also noticed that Supermicro dual 2011 boards can be found as low as $350. So, for a little over $1000, you could have the base of a nice folding system. The question in my mind is, at what clock speed will these chips fold? I'm sure the 3ghz advertised max turbo is for single threaded performance, but I wonder if the 30x multi could be forced 100% of the time, or at least a 29x multi. At 2.9 to 3.0ghz, 16 cores/32 threads would be pretty competitive. Could somebody educate me on what I could expect in terms of a 24/7 100% load clock speed with these chips? Has anybody tried throttlestop or a similar method to force a higher multiplier?
