Indeed I did, newer system for same money.That's a solid combination but the price of X79 motherboards including that same motherboard is just expensive for their auction and asking prices. What did you end up doing with the processor and motherboard did you sell them and go X99?
I'm now looking at the E5 2686 V3 ES ($349) vs E5 2686 V3 QS ( $399)Would you recommend buying one of these? My budget is around $350
I'm building a low-cost Xeon to run real-time computations in a c++ environment, across multiple instances.
I have an Asrock X99 Extreme3 MB.
I'm considering one of these:
Intel Xeon E5-2690 v3 ES LGA2011-3 12C Compatible with X99 i7-6850K 6900K 6950X
Intel Xeon E5 2683 V3 OEM
Intel Xeon E5 2683 V3 OEM 2.0Ghz 35MB L3 14 Core Max Turbo 3.0Ghz 120W CPU
E5-2683 v4 ES
Intel Xeon E5-2683 v4 ES LGA2011-3 16C Compatible with X99 i7-6850K 6900K 6950X
Any thoughts from anyone would be much appreciated.
Guys, someone guides me ?
I am interested in buying 2x E5-2690v4 ES CPUs but i didn't find a single one on eBay and other places. !!!!
Just grabbed last piece of e5 2686v3 from ebay for 399, wanted two but only once piece was left.
Also i found people in taobao selling them in case they are not on ebay.

I managed to upgrade my system for just short of £500, mainly had to go the ebay route but managed it. (Eg: Motherboard I Have: MSI X99S SLI Plus Socket 2011-3 Enthusiast Motherboard (LGA2011-V3)Hello to all,
(My apologise for long text - It's a description of use-case scenario)
Could you help me (point out exact models to look for or get if available) with build?
I'm trying to build a rig for game streaming from 1 PC only. Mostly World of Tanks for now, but I'd like to be able to stream something more resource demanding from time to time.
My current stream setup is 2 PC via NGINX server:
Game rig is
i5-4690K @4.4GHzEncode rig is: (Laptop originally obtained for wife - you know how stubborn woman can be - she wanted it to play games because I was going to get powerfull PC and she will get something cheap bla bla bla... now it just reminds me how much I've paid for a dust catcher...)
8GB Kingston 1600MHz
MSI GTX 970
MSI Gaming 5 Mobo
EVGA 500W PSU
Gladius M40 Case
i7-4710HQ @ 2.5GHzIt get's the job done... but I need something more powerfull and reliable to avoid things like "Oops! Sorry for unplugging that ethernet cable!"
It's MSI Dominator if I remember correctly... Can't recall exact number. I'm @ work now
I've almost pulled the trigger on dual E5-2670 v1 setup... Then noticed how power hungry it will be and abandoned that idea.
I've spen few weeks browsing various sites and finally landed here. Haven't seen so much detailed info anywhere else, that's why I've decided to post here.
Everything would be easy if I'd build second PC only for encoding - half of these ebay Xeons would apply. However that's impossible and I have to stick with upgrading gaming PC. No room for another PC in terms of electricity and heat. I hope for lowering both when I stop using that laptop.
That's why I need your help in choosing right CPU for the job. Is it even possible to get CPU + MOBO + 16GB RAM under 700$ for this kind of build? (or 650€ since I'm in Europe). Maybe something close to that price? I hope some one here has experience in such use scenario
Big thanks in advance,
Thanks for answer. That upgrade looks really nice for it's priceI managed to upgrade my system for just short of £500, mainly had to go the ebay route but managed it. (Eg: Motherboard I Have: MSI X99S SLI Plus Socket 2011-3 Enthusiast Motherboard (LGA2011-V3)
Processor: Intel Xeon E5-2658 v3 ES LGA2011-3 12C Compatible with X99 i7-5820K 5930K 5960X
Ram: Crucial BLS8G4D240FSC - Ballistix Sport LT - DDR4 - 8 GB - DIMM 288-pin - 24...
The above comes in @ £421.14 (468 euros) and is more than adequate and leaves the opportunity to upgrade if you see fit.
Hope the above helps.
I have played Mafia 3, Mortal Kombat X, and Grid Autosport and I have not had any issues, fps are good and steady.Thanks for answer. That upgrade looks really nice for it's price
Have you tried it in games? I'm curious how it will do with such clock speeds.
Does anyone know/heard off difference in gaming/encoding with HT switched off? There are chips without it but I didn't find anything special about them yet.
I picked up the QS, but would have got the ES if it was in stock. Sold out within 1 hour of that post.Wow I can't believe I missed out on the E5-2686 V3 QS. Btw both appear to have the same stepping and revision the difference appears to be in the microcode detection by CPU-Z. Now the cheapest E5-2686 V3 QS I can find is at $505 which is almost $665 Canadian dollars.
The Xeon E5-2650 v3 QFSB supports up to 1866mhz quadchannel, never seen HWinfo screenshots with more.Hello to all,
Need advice on RAM speed on Supermicro X10DRL-i and Xeon E5-2650 V3 QFSB.
RAM is DDR4-2133 ECC 4GB x 4pcs.
But it runs as DDR4-1867 only, no difference if configured as 2133, 2200 or "Auto" in bios (2.00).
Is it possible that RAM actually NOT 2133 (counterfeit) ?
Please see screenshots below.
