    Intel server hardware usually doesn't support (I would even say 'never supports') ES/QS CPUs. So you'll need to take Asus/Supermicro/Other manufacturer's option.

    There is a slight beamish on the pins of my e5 2670 from NATEX. Is the cpu usable? Any issues? It's not on the other cpu I have

    Do you mean these bright dots on the pads? They are from the socket pins, probably it was set too tight. Nothing special, should work well.

    You mean the discoloration of the pads at the bottom? It's quite normal. I bought a matching pair E5-2670 and both the processors had discolored pads. Few were brighter while few were darker. It's completely normal and the processor should work fine. You could try cleaning the underside with alcohol to see if it helps. I would totally disregard it and just install the processor.

    He must be talking about this. You gotta be good at "Where's Waldo" to see it. :confused:

    Can't find e5-2670 cheaper than $100/piece. It seems that Natex is out of stock with these.

    Yeah, it looks like the price is stable around $100 in the last month or so. Prior to that, it got to $75.

    yeap, looks like the firesale of xeon cpus are over. it was good while it lasted. I wish i got on it earlier too. back in june, the e5-2686 v3 QS was around $400. now you can't even find one for less than $550. ;(. I did got the 2 e5-2670 cpu from natex without the MB for another build though

    Natex still have the CPU/MB/128GB or 64GB ram combo at good price. you should consider getting the combo and selling off the MB and ram if you don't need them.

    I only need one CPU for testing :). I already have my setup with a supermicron X9DR3-LN4F (great if you can over look the size -- I am talking about the motherboard, not the lady).

    If the fire sale is over I sure hope the price of MB's comes back down to a sane level. I've been sitting on a pair of E5 2670s for months waiting patiently for a reasonably priced MB.

    i finally figure out how to make it boot.. i just removed the vga cable, disable the onboard video and enabled the 4gb on bios, and voila it boots and now im running fstorm perfectly.

    All still seems pretty cheap to me. I picked up a pair of E5-2650's at $30 each and an OpenCompute board for $60 this week.
