Chipset heat sink is pretty big with good match colors.

GIGABYTE own UEFI DualBIOS Interface
Intel Xeon E5-2680 operating information shows physical 8 cores clock is around 2.7~3.1GHz.

M.I.T. Tuning Page
E5-2680 is 27x and supporting Turbo Boost. As core utilization, you can adjust between 31~35 ratio.
Enable X.M.P. to OC DDR3 1333 to 1866.

Advanced CPU Features Menu
You can adjust individual CPU Core ratio and choose how many cores to run.
C1E is power saving feature. Intel Turbo Boost is opposite with C1E. It will boost the CPU speed by loading.

LGA 2011 is exclusive quad channels structure. You can set up by Channel A/B/C/D.
For X.M.P. DDR3, it has original parameters. The picture shows CL9 10-9-27.

CPU Vcore 0.800~1.700V
CPU Vtt 0.715~1.610V
CPU PLL 1.195~1.985V
IMC 0.800~1.600V

DRAM Voltage 1.100~1.990V

PC Health Status

Xeon E5-2680 is for Server market. Itís more on multi-threads and reliability.
If you want to pull higher clock, you can adjust the CPU frequency. However, itís limited.
If you are OC enthusiasts or looking for higher clock, Core i7 3930K or 3960X is more suitable.
The test below is based on E5-2680 8C16T structure.

Test Configuration
CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2680
VGA: PowerColor AX7970 3GBD5-2DHV3
HD: SanDisk Extreme 240GB
