    You can't really make a blanket statement like that. It's going to be very workload dependent. Two different workloads that both put the CPUs to 100% utilization don't necessarily have the same power consumption or speed under load.

    One workload might favor the 2696 and another the 2697.

    But given how much the 2696 costs when the supply was there vs the 2697, i think 2696 was definitely more cost effective. now that supply ran its course i think it's somewhat more awash. 2697 has better compatibility with MB...

    If you had to start buying today would you opt for thr 2697?? Which motherboard is going to have the best compatibility for the price?

    wow, that was fast. So looks like not only 2696 has ran out, even 2690 v2 also out b/c i was going to say go for 2690 v2 since that is almost as fast multithread and slightly faster single thread.

    can also go for 2660 v2 which is only $110, but it's look like it's only a little faster than 2670 v1 and slower than 2680 v2

    2697 is still more expensive than 2696

    most cost effective right now is 2680 v2. i would go for that..... i myself got an asus z9pe-d16 which works great with win10 1709. sleep also works perfectly. had some issues with SM MB. if SM MB you might want to make sure you get the WS ones..

    For you overclockers - IMHO no overclock is proven to work unless stable running y-cruncher and newest Prime95 for a while. AVX(2) need to be taxed.

    I agree, though the E5 2696 v2 has only AVX, which helps a lot. Though having AVX2 is a huge performance boost in many applications.

    My E5-2680 V2 were delivered yesterday, hoping to get them installed in the Intel 4U/tower system this week.
    Finally was able to get some for $300 shipped for 2.

    So what's the current best bang for buck v2 cpu right now? A few weeks back I scored 8 E5-2650L V2s for 75/ea. Not gonna be as fast but they'll be in a 4 node cluster.

    I would say the E5-2680 v2 (10 cores, 2.8 to 3.6 GHz) if you want the most cores per cost (about 180 USD), and the E5-2667 v2 (8 cores, 3.3 to 4.0 GHz) if you need a high clock frequency (about 330 USD). The E5-2696 v2 Xeons are getting more and more expensive... :(

    I go 2 E5-2670v2 for $340, but I see now as low as 240ish.

    I think I posted somewhere here before that theres no reason to get 2670 v2 since they were same price as 2680 v2 around 320+ for 2.

    But if you can get two 2670 v2 for $240 then its worth it

    ya at the time I got them the 2680s where 350 each from what I saw...so I pulled the trigger paid a little too much- oh well shit happens- for me not watching the prices and then missing a good deal only to have to jump up a tier and pay a lot more -

    peace of mind was work a $100

    I think I know which seller that was. he was just grossly over pricing it. I hope you choose list by lowest price because there was several other sellers selling them for $180 or less each.

    Hi. How did you set up your e5 v2 xeon to run on x36 multiplier on all cores? Could it be done on Intel s2600cp motherboard?

    I'm very new at this but --techyparts is within driving distance of me if I had issues that couldn't be resolved without a personal visit

    When loading all cores I get x31. With BCLK at 113Mhz that means 3.5Ghz on all cores. I had to bump voltage to 1.160v to get it stable.

    You can probably do the same on s2600cp.
