Xeon compatible?

Q: Xeon compatible?

Not sure if this is in the proper section but here goes:

I'm still running a first gen i7-920 on a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P, overclocked to 3.8GHz with a couple of GTX670s in SLI. Was thinking of keeping the graphics cards and SSDs and upgrading CPU to a 6 core XEON (which I would also try to overclock). Problem is that the X5650 through 70 does not appear to be on the Gigabyte site as a supported CPU BUT I've seen some threads implying that it will work with this board. Is there anyone that might be able to confirm that here?

Also, If I decide to just pick one up and try it, will Windows 7 x64 continue to run with the CPU swap or will it complain?

Preferred Solution: Xeon compatible?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Xeon compatible?

I'm actually confused, because according to the upgrade list, the x5650 isn't on there, but it is a Socket 1366 processor, which is the socket on your mobo. So I can't say for certain, but in theory it should work.

Also it shouldn't cause any issues with your OS, since you're only changing one piece of hardware.

It's getting to be upgrade time again.

Going to go the server route, probably 1366 Xeon.

My questions are:

1. Do Xeon 1366's have different hole alignment/spacing that consumer 1366's?

2. If so, can anyone recommend some water blocks other than Koolance, which I know I can use, to take a look at?

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Socket 1366 Xeon - can anyone recommend compatible waterblocks?

Im pretty sure all 1366 motherboards use the same mounting holes. So any waterblock for the 1366 socket should be compatible.

I checked T3600 and 3610 - the only difference is BIOS firmware, even BIOS chips are the same. T3600 has Intel ME firmware 7th version - that is why Xeon v2 are not recognized by the 3600 system, they need later 8th version of ME. Upgrade of ME formware is a difficult procedure  - You need to fit the size and other attributes of old ME region. The simpliest way would be to read both BIOS chips from 3610 motherboard and clean data region in ME but I don't have any T3610 systems. Another way is to analyze BIOS file for T3610 and drag out the firmware for T3600. If anybody has T3610 - please reply

Hi, Xeon E3-1535M v5 or Xeon E3-1550M v5? Which processor would you recommend? A shop told me, that E3-1535M v5 is no longer available by Lenovo and that Xeon E3-1550M v5 would be the best. Is this true? Thanks for any advice!

A:P50: Xeon E3-1535M v5 or Xeon E3-1550M v5?

Saw your other post asking about optical drive. I got a feeling that it's either a joke or scam. 1) There's no optical drive option for P50 (of course we are talking about built-in drive, not the external one).2) There's no E3-1550M v5 option for P50.  In fact, even the E3-1535M has limited availability.  e.g. E3-1535M is available in Japan but not in US. Good luck with the 'special built' P50.

I recently bought a Xeon 2.8 533 512 (prod BX80532KE2800DSL72F) with a view to building a mono-CPU system. The box, however, states 'Supports Dual-processor ONLY / 604-pin micro-PGA).

Is this correct? Do I need to DUAL chip the board or will it work as a standalone?

If I need 2 do I get exactly the same one to create the matched pair or is there a different one I need to get to compliment the architecture to let it function at peak?

Thanks
 

A:Xeon CPU

Yes, you need two that are exactly the same. Out of interest, why did you buy a Xeon if you don't want to run multiple processors? They are nothing more than a P4 with a higher pricetag and SMP support.

Xeon E3 or i7??? I have asked this question before but that has been some time ago. I am needing a good cpu that will be used for video editing for up to 4-5 hours a day. I know a Xeon is made for 24/7 use and comes from a better dye so I was wondering what people's thoughts were. There will be no overclocking so don't go there. Thanks.
 

A:Xeon E3 or i7

Its going to depend on the chip of course, but I would say in general an i7 would be the better option. If you go with a 6 core 12 thread i7 you will have a very nice video editing machine. Thats my opinion, its in reality going to be up to exactly what your needs beyond just video editing will be to decide what is a better idea.

based off the responses i got when talking about a dual athlon mp system... it doesnt look so great. so i'm thinking of some other options. i've got a friend who does 3d animation and uses an older gateway server. It's got a dual xeon motherboard but he only uses one processor... when i had the chance of working on this system, it seemed REALLY fast. it could be that he had a SCSI drive that spun so fast you could hear it grind, or it could be that he did't have all the clutter on it and was running windows NT 4. but like i said, it was REALLY fast. i'm just asking for some thoughts on this because right now (besides the INSANE cost for a dual xeon motherboard) it seems like a viable option. thanks!

I have a question about Xeon processor's, would it be more efficient to run 3 or 4 processor's in a server, is it better for them to work in tandem?
 

A:Xeon processor

Unless you're going to be running a file server for 100 or more computers using it heavily, I wouldn't go over 2 processors (Athlon MPs aren't extremely expensive, and do the job well). However, I'd set up the network as follows for 50 or less computers:

Dual Processor (doesnt have to be fast) Domain Controller

Dual Processor Domain Controller back up (very important -- it would SUCK to lose all your user names and domain information, and remember, downtime reflects poorly on you)

Dual Processor (faster then others) File Server
And add File Servers as needed. This set up is cost efficient, and if you use RAID 5, you wont lose data if one disk drive goes. You keep the File Servers seperate from domain controllers, and keep everything running well.
So, to answer your question, NO, I do not think anything over 2 processors is needed.

A:AMD 64 or Dual XEON

I would still get a AthlonXP... AMD64's are still to new and expensive, and Dual XEON's are wayyyyyyyyyy to expensive and will not give you any noticiable improvements in gaming.

Untill amd64's get established, if you really want a dual cpu system, get a Dual Athlon MP one, they are far cheaper.

While those CPUs are slightly faster (0.1GHz) than the CPUs paired with Iris graphics (P530), the trade-off to accommodate the bigger TDP didn?t make sense as the vast majority of Lenovo customers ask for discrete graphics and really don?t want/use the Intel integrated graphics in the first place.

I have a Pentium II Xeon 450 CPU, 1MB cache. Basically, I just want to know if it will work on a motherboard that normally uses regular CPUs (non Xeon).

More specifically, I'm using an Abit BE6 board that has a PII 350 in it. Would I be able to take out the 350, pop in the Xeon, and expect it to work?

Thanks for the help.
 

A:really easy PII xeon question.

Sorry apparently not, the xeon processors need a slot 2 motherboare, the be6 is a slot one. From what I can read it is not compatible with the 440bx chipset either

The Slot-2 interface features the 330 pins the Pentium II/III Xeon processor plugs into,
unfortunately this is a considerably longer interface than the 242 pins of the Slot-1
interface the Pentium II/III processor uses. With the Socket-370 Celeron converting it to a
Slot-1 motherboard wasn't much of a problem and wasn't that difficult to imagine since the
Celeron was originally designed for use with Slot-1 motherboards. The Xeon wasn't. http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=972

Hi all,

I want a pc to use as a testbed at work, and will dual boot it with a server OS and XP Pro.

I was thinking of a EVO W6000 DUAL XEON 2.2GHz because i can get a refurbed one for 140, or
a Core2duo based rig (probably E2180, then OC it) which will mostly likely cost me double that.

Now, it is only a test rig, but i'd be insterested to know what you guys think will give greater performance out of the 2 rigs.

If i had a E6400 v dual Xeon 2.2, which would you favour (just comparing approximate like for like clock speeds here)

Also, would you recommend dual boots from the same hdd, or separate installs on separate hdd's. If separate then i may struggle with the EVO pc.

Thanks for any advice.
 

A:Dual Xeon v Core2Duo

If you all you are after is raw performance, then those Xeons in there are ancient (based on the first P4) and even a single Core 2 core with modern RAM can probably do faster than those two Xeons together.

OK, so I rebuilt my PC a few weeks ago. (All specs on profile) Seemed to all go really smooth until Windows Updates started failing. No cumulative updates succeed. I looked back in the history to see the first fail and it was some Xeon driver.
Looked in device management and saw alot of Xeon drivers listed under System Devices.

If I click on any one of the intel(R) Xeon(R) v4/****** entries and select properties it says No drivers installed for this device.
Yet when I click on Driver it shows Intel, 26/01/2016 10.1.2.19 For every entry.

So I'm asking, is this right?
Did I screw something up on install?
Can I fix it?

Hope someone knows more than I do.

Thanks in advance

Dre.

PS. have run intel driver installer. Asus chipset installer etc

Hi there, I am so stupid. I was distracted today by a recommended BIOS update that flashed on the screen. Needing a break and being naive, I clicked-on the update following the steps required.  My computer now no longer boots up. P71 20HK - Intel E3-1505M v6 I have read many posts about potential solutions........reaching out to ask whether anyone else has been silly enough to download this 'recommended' update (13/march/2018) and perhaps have a solution? Thanks in advance

Hi All, Over the past few days I've started to notice that my Thinkpad immediately turns on after being shut down or put to sleep. I dual boot elementary and windows 10. My laptop has turned on in my bag on multiple occasions, leading to excessive battery drain and unneccessary thermal stress. Here's what I've tried so far: Checking the power settings (even though I hadn't changed them in between before the problems started and after)Disabling and reenabling hibernate (via cmd)Rolling back the BIOS (unsuccessful, just get the error message "This BIOS image file does not match the system")Changing Legacy Boot settings (even though the settings I had were no issue before) I notice that the power button blinks quickly for a few seconds when I shut my computer down, and that it shuts off for half a second before starting up again. This is a big impediment to me using my laptop normally.I have to remove the battery in order to carry my laptop around, which as one might imagine is a pain. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Full specs here: Host Name: xxxx-THINKPADOS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 HomeOS Version: 10.0.17134 N/A Build 17134OS Manufacturer: Microsoft CorporationOS Configuration: Standalone WorkstationOS Build Type: Multiprocessor FreeRegistered Owner: Windows UserRegistered Organization:Product ID: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxOriginal Install Date: 5/29/2018, 8:58:14 PMSystem Boot Time: 9/18/2018, 4:20:39 PMSystem Manufac...

i have a intel xeon quad core processor, and i have built a system for it, the system works fine , boots windows regularly, but when i run cpu intensive programs such as video editing (Vegas 8.0) or photoshop it will start to lag other programs like the internet, and even windows itself, i have never set up windows for a quad core cpu, is there any special tweaking that needs to be done so it can run more efficiently? Better multitasking.

sys specs
intel xeon 3300 2.66ghz per core x4
4gb of ddr2 ram
512mb 8800 gt
currently installed is windows xp 64bit.

what do you guys recommend? im sure these programs cant really be maxing out on the power of this cpu?

i have never really built any systems with quad cores or even dual cores so i am unsure of the steps nessesary to make the cpu compatible with it, tweak it.

thanks in advance, Fang_x

Hi everyone. I know on the desktop I prefer AMD over Intel. However I am going to be building a new box for a server, which will mainly be doing streaming media, audio encoding, etc. My options are

Dual Xeon 2.4 GHz with Hyperthreading
Dual Opteron 240

Just wondering if anyone has any opinions/experiences with either?

Thanks

A:Solved: Xeon vs Opteron

Guess this is actually solved myself. I was going to go with the Opteron after reading a lot about it this morning, but then I remembered that some of the software I use is precompiled, and does not have sources available....so I couldnt compile it for the 64 bit.

Oh well, I'll go with the Xeon and it will be good.

Thanks
