Default Dual Quadcore Xeons, 12GB RAM, Tyan Motherboard - SOLD

Well I had my fun with this setup, but since I can not overclock with it, It is time to find something to tweak!

This is a rock solid workstation setup, or server platform, or something to game with!

2 x Intel Xeon X5355 Quad Core 2.66GHZ 8MB Cache CPU's with Active copper heatsinks - Intel® Xeon® Processor X5355 (8M Cache, 2.66 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)
1 x Tyan Tempest i5000XT Motherboard - S2696 model with LSI 8 Port SAS option TYAN
12GB DDR2 667 FBDIMM RAM (EXPENSIVE even now!) (4 x 2GB, 4 x 1GB DIMMS) Quad Channel

The setup above performs about on par with a i7 965 in most benchmarks, but should be exceptionally quick for video/audio/photo editing work, I just dont know what benchmarks to run to test that out. Link to High End CPU Passmark results : PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End . Compare that to my testing below :


Board has a total of 14 SATA ports (8 on LSI SAS/SATA Raid controller, 6 on intel chipset Raid controller)
Board has HD Audio, with SPDIF in/out, and Firewire. Dual Intel Gigabit LAN, and also 2 x PCIe X16 slots, but lower slot is 8x electrical. Perfect for a Physx card or the like.

Old pic with only some of the RAM isntalled. Since then, all RAM installed and perfectly stable.


I would recommend at least a Antec 500W EarthWatts PSU to run this setup. I do have a Antec Titan Case with Anted EarthWatts 500W PSU that I could throw in for $100 extra and install the board for you if you need a EATX Case.

Will ship!! (bot not the case + PSU)

hmm wonder if there is cpu water blocks for this , is it possible to mount this in a normal case and just run it as a home pc or is the ram to slow for things like gaming?
