Update - the Asus board posted but ignored the forced 1.25x and the Gigabyte board refused to post.

evga, asus and gigabyte refuse to answer me.

In other news - anyone want a cool running 8-core Xeon with 20mb cache and ECC support for an X79 board? :)

No sales outside of FS/FT, no sales of ES components.
Consider yourself warned.

Gillbot, that wasn't a serious offer - they aren't for sale!

AdamK, you can force it to run at a higher multiplier within the turbo limits. And the fsb can be taken up to ~108mhz just like a normal SB, but nothing else.

Understandable, just wanted to be sure the message was clear for anyone that may pop in here and see that comment.

Yea the price of these xeons are dirt cheap. I have a asus p9x79 deluxe could someone confirm the e5-2670 v1 works in this board or is it just v2?

Should work fine. I have a 1650, 1660, 2650, 2670 all v1 and all work fine in my x79 deluxe.

Although if you do any gaming I would advise against the 2650/2670 because of the poor single threaded performance. The 1650/60 can equal or surpass the 2670 when overclocked to ~4ghz and have much better single threaded performance, and an average 1650 will clock to around 4.5ghz at safe volts. 1650 (3930k)'s now go for as low as $120 and 1660(3960x)'s go for as low as $180.

Where the 2670's really shine is in a dual config.
