Not all ES CPU are the same so even asking about all "ES V4" it's irrelevant as you may receive a different 'version'. It doesn't matter if it's v1, v2, v3, v4, etc... all ES chips could be missing something or have different configurations than retail.Everybody that have ES V4, please tell us did you find something unusual about this kind of XEON CPU ? I mean something to missing or something to be factory disabled ?
Where did you find the Fry's deal? I have been watching for months and 2011v3 motherboard deals are so rareI have MSI: X99A Raider (BIOS P.4 or above) and Asrock X99 OC formula.
Both motherboard work with early version of E5 V4 ES chip as well as V3.
I brought the MSI X99 Raider from Fry's electronic for $109.
Asrock X99 OC from Ebay for $160
It might have been a clearance deal just like Microcenter occasionally has from what I have heard. B&H is also known to offer motherboards on clearance too.Where did you find the Fry's deal? I have been watching for months and 2011v3 motherboard deals are so rare

2x $150 for e5 2658Hi Guys,
Xeon Processor E5-2643v2 QS CPU 3.5GHz 6-Core 25M Max 3.8GHz
Xeon Processor E5-2697 v4 ES LGA2011-3 18-Core 2.2GHz Max 2.6GHz
Xeon Processor E5-2697 v2 QS LGA2011 12-Core 2.7Ghz Max 3.0GHz
Xeon Processor E5-2695 V2 QS 2.4Ghz 30MB L3 12-Core Max Turbo 3.2GGhz
Xeon Processor E5-2683 V3 OEM 2.0Ghz 35MB L3 14 Core Max Turbo 3.0Ghz
I am looking for a balance of cores and speed for purely after effects/editing rig.
The problem is it's hard to get >16 cores with above 3.0Ghz.
Based on my research after 16 cores you do not see improvement that much.
After Effects 2014(Allows Multithreading) - 0% improvement after 16 cores
If you find some please let me know and my budget is around $600 for the cpu.
At the moment the idle temperature seems to be around 50C with a single fan running at 500 RPM. I used a really bad paste, didn't bother on spreading it properly, the fan is mounted on a pull setup - all of it temporary until I get a set of 2011 brackets for Noctua U12P. The back of the case feels warm but not hot. Will report later when I'm sure about the temperatures.I hope the temperature on idle not 60C
