I've had my eyes out for a pair of 2680v2:s but prices I've seen has been around £200+/$275 each w/o shipping. I bought two 2690v2 for £390/$540 hoping I made a good deal. Starting to wonder if I should have aimed for 2650v2 instead, those prices seems much more easier to find good deals on.
wow, 2x 2690 v2 for $540? that's pretty good price! The going rate i;ve seen is $300 each.

Yeah, I'd thought it was a decent price. Especially since the 2680v2:s have gotten expensive lately. Still wonder if I made the right buy, I expect a pair of 2650v2:s would have been sufficient for me.

Hope I'm not deviating from the topic too much with this question. I'm replacing a pair of 2620v1:s that are running in a Supermicro 826B chassis and I'm hoping to reuse the passive heatsinks (SNK-P0048PS).
Should I be worried that the new CPUs are rated at TDP 130W compared to the older at 95W?

except maybe for the low power cpu, passive heatsink are no good.

Now they might have what looks like just a heat sink with no fan attached but you could have these baffles or air channels that have fans moving air thr them directly into the heatsink.

But just passive heatsink and a few regular fans in the back is not ok,
