My System Specs

Default

It isn't all that great of a board currently. All E5 Xeons currently have no working blck straps. So you are going to only get a 3-5% overclock by increasing your bclk and that is it. Unless Intel offers an overclockable version of the Sandy Bridge-EP or w/ Ivy Bridge-EP, then I'll pass on this (and the Asus Z9PE-D8 WS). An SR-2 w/ a pair of good clocking hexacores is a better choice still unfortunately.

Or better yet a 4p Magny-Cours rig if you want it for folding.
