    I've got two Xeon ES chips that are 8 core currently, and they have a decent turbo, but I'm looking for a boos in single-threaded apps. So I need a matched pair of E5-2687W v3 or v4 or equivalent. I'll gladly throw in the 8-core chips for someone needing lower-end replacements for the chips they're sending. I'm active in WCG, which will be the primary purpose for these chips.

    Still looking. I'd hate to resort to eBay if someone around here has these.

    2667 V3 is also a good alternative for a nice base clock speed and might be a more cost effective option. I just recently upgraded to two of those. 2 less cores but just an idea anyways.

    Thank you for the advice. I probably don't need the extra core count, but I am trying to keep up with WCG in the wake of a server crash. So I figured I'd start at the top and work down. That is a good model, and probably way more affordable, so it would be a good second choice.
