  • Would a X5650 work on a gigabyte EX58A UD5/7?

    Hey guys,

    Anybody got an idea off hand if a X5650 will work on a gigabyte EX58A UD5/7 ? It looks like its not in the compatbility list, but the 980 is. A bit of googling vaguely shows a person listed with a ud 7 and a x5650 but I cant confirm it yet... nobody seems to know on hexus.

    Maybe I should just test one. (really dont wanna take the cooler off etc though and experience that wonderful palarva needlessly lol)

    Cheers.

    I'm sure i've seen benchmarks submitted with those two.

      The guys at extreme systems seem to agree too! Thanks dude. I'll give it a shot soon

        I've used that cpu on a UD7 (didnt boot, think could have something to do with my board rev), X58 classified and p6t deluxe oc palm edition worked fine on the last two.
        But why would you want to run the X5650 on a normal consumer board? The i7 980x is a better option, cheaper better resale value.

          Because the Xenon chips are higher binned parts and often over clock a lot better then the lower binned desktop variants.

              Yes they are higher binned, but it does not mean they will overclock better.
              It's like saying that the i7 960 is a higher binned version of the i7 920.
              They are both the same chip and overclock more or less the same, but as always silicon dependent, it's just one performed better at the desired setting for the i7 960. It's also possible that they used a 960 chip for a 920 to fill demand.
              This is a common case with AMD chips.

              xeon's just run cooler and have the extra qpi link really. Much better off with the i7 version unless you use a dual cpu socket mobo.

                they may be binned higher but are normally limited by a very low multi, making them a bit harder to deal with.
