    @Nova - Great thanks for the quick reply. Picked up the QHVK (luckily last one).

    I have two configurations with (OEM and ES2) and I am quite happy with both, but I am thinking of getting rid of one set: Asus Z10PE WS D8 and 2 x 2698 V4 (QHZD) and 128GB REG ECC. I was wondering if there still demand for these puppies or it's now something else popular ??

    Hi everyone, new member here.
    I am looking into buying 2x E5-2683 v3 so was wandering if I should choose revision M0 (stepping 2) or R2 (stepping 2)? I intend to use it with Supermicro 7038A-i mostly for architectural visualizations/rendering.

    Wow. That's amazing. What's the ballpark idea of how much you might be thinking of selling off?

    Pretty much the same amount I paid for it (add up prices from ebay)... I had an opportunity to buy almost the identical configuration thru the company and claim that as en expense, so i don't need this one. PM me. (sadly, I am in Europe, so sending it to US will have un-necessary export-import fees)

    Maybe move this post into non ES (engineering sample) thread, unless you talk about ES samples. I can't talk about V3 ESs, but V4 ESs seems to be damn good value for the money.

    Well that the part that's confusing me most as I have seen both versions mentioned and marked as QS, ES and even production (sspec SR1XH).

    Stepping 2 is either QS or production. The production stepping is C1 (SR1XH). CPU-Z just reports it incorrectly. If you use something like HwInfo64 it will show the proper stepping. If it says ES but says Stepping 2 in the CPU-Z and the E5-2683 V3 it's a QS. If it says E5-2683 V3 in CPU-Z without ES and showing Stepping 2 it's a production processor.

    That's because even QS or ES can be remarked on the heatspreader as SR1XH. The best way to verify is to use HwInfo64 and CPU-Z.

    I asked this as in HwInfo64 both M0/2 and R2/2 seem to be labelled as C0/C1 and SR1XH, for example:

    M0/2 - Intel Xeon E5-2683 V3 SR1XH 2.0GHz 14Core 35M 9.6GT/s LGA2011-3 CPU Processor | eBay

    R2/2 - Intel Xeon E5-2683 V3 SR1XH 2.0GHz 14 core 35M R2 step. 2

    I learned in the mean time that neither M nor R is correct stepping label for 14 core cpu so I guess all this ebay e5-2683 v3 xeons are suspicious.

    Any recommendations for other E5 v3 or v4 gen cpus? My budget is around $800 and they will be used for architectural visualizations/rendering.

    There is two different CPU-Z versions in both of those listings that's why they are reporting M/R steppings. If you look at both listings the seller has provided HwInfo64 screenshots in the picture gallery and they both report that it is a production C0/C1 stepping processor. This is why for details you shouldn't be relying on CPU-Z as while it provides general information has issues with it's reporting and information. None of those E5-2683 V3 are suspicious at all. The HwInfo64 screenshots are what you should be relying upon for details and that is provided for both listings. The CPU-Z only shows that it is a production processor from a C0/C1 stepping (note the stepping 2 and the absence of [ES]).

    Very useful info, than you. These e5-2683v3 seem very good value. I have been looking at e5-2678v3 and various v4 ES cpus but production e5-2683v3 at around 700usd for pair are my current favourite choice.

    Stupid question on my workstation machine i have a E5-2658v4 QS on a ASRock X99 Extreme4 all working well only i want to use my DDR4 quad channel kit 3200MHz i tried to load the XMP profile but in Windows 10 i can not find if the memory is on 3200MHz i only see 2133Mhz is it not possible on Zeon processors to load XMP profile or did i do something wrong?

    I was able to pick up a some DDR3 14900R ECC Ram that I didn't really plan on. Now the question is, what ES/QS CPU should I look for, or is the E5-2670 v1 still the way to go? Thanks as always.

    E5-2670 V1 unfortunately have been rising in price steadily since mid-late 2016. They are no longer the way to go as they have now normalized at around $85+ per SR0H8 (SR0KX can even be found for higher).

    Hi Guys,

    I’d appreciate your help with choosing a v4 E5 Xeon. Motherboard is Supermicro X10 SRM-TF and the server will run ESXi with several VMs.
    What would be a safe choice for me given current eBay offering? I want stability and of course best performance for the price < $450.

    Given similar prices of the below ~$350, which offer is worth it? I'm confused, especially with the 1st seller as he does not provide CPU version (at least not that I can decode, no HWInfo64)
    • 1st seller
    Intel Xeon E5-2680 v4 ES (revision ?)

    Intel Xeon E5-2680 v4 ES LGA2011-3 14C Compatible with X99 i7-6850K 6900K 6950X | eBay

    Intel Xeon E5-2683 v4 ES QHZE (revision ?)

    Intel Xeon E5-2683 v4 ES QHZE LGA2011-3 16C Compatible with X99 i7-6900K 6950X | eBay

    Intel Xeon E5-2660 v4 ES 2GHz(2.5GHz) (revision B0)

    Intel Xeon E5-2660 v4 ES 2GHz(2.5GHz)LGA2011-3 14C Compatible X99 i7-6900K 6950X | eBay

    Intel Xeon E5-2650 v4 ES 2.2GHz (revision B0)

    Intel Xeon E5-2650 v4 ES 2.2GHz LGA2011-3 12C Compatible with X99 i7-6850K 6900K

    • 2nd seller
    2650 QHV6

    2683 QH27 (ES0)

    • 3rd seller
    2680 QHV7 remarked as QHVB (ES2)

    Any better/safer bets? Thanks a lot!

    Jumping onboard to the ES game, I bought into the:

    MBD-X10DAL-I-O

    I can't seem to find an answer to a wild and silly idea. I bought 32GB of ECC from the tested Memory listing for this model. However, I am not planning to install 2 CPUs to start. I know I lose out on one of the PCI slots which is fine. However, I am assuming I can only use the memory in the slots associated with CPU I am populating. Right?

    What about when I
    populate the other processor, am I locked into the same ECC 2133 I paired with the other processor or can one have LRDIMMs, etc.?

    Sounds silly, but the super micro manual isn't easy English as it is!

    Yes

    Yes
    Can mix speeds but not LRDIMM and RDIMM

    For a server I would recommend something that is a QS or later if it is mission-critical. Those V4 processors are all early engineering samples and they do not have a B0 revision (CPU-Z isn't reading it properly). B0/M0/R0 are production steppings and if you look at CPU-Z it shows stepping of 0 which is an early engineering sample. Production or QS have a CPU-Z cpuid stepping showing 1.

    I'm looking into a E5-2630L V4 ES or a E5-2650 V4 ES and wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with the EVGA X99 Micro 2? I'm also considering a Asrock X99 M Extreme 4. Will both of these boards work fine with standard UDIMM desktop ram at 2133?
