I have more questions here but no time to respond ATM!... Very good steal with those CPUs! had to ask first about your RAM setup. (Here is a little challenge for you) Are you about to go 8 channel with your Lenovo D30? Because you will need at least 16 memory modules running at 1866 MHz to run "level" with my z820 memory bandwidthWhats the benchmarks?
I was expecting the seller not to accept my offer.....lol... oh well.. It would've been nice to be able to use this in the lenovo s30 but that's not the case. I do have two D30, one with dual 2695 v2 and another with dual 2667 v2. I guess this will replace the 2695 v2 cpus and then i can put those 2695 v2 which are not oem into my s30.
2695 v2 is also 12 core 24 threads but the overall single and multicore speed is basically mediocre.
2680 v2 is only $55 now...lol... for $55, i don't think you can find a new intel or ryzen cpu that can beat the 2680 v2 in multicore performance either.
Looks like the price drop in v2 cpu is making them a bargain again if you willing to use older MB and hardwares.
