f.sardis:   Just get a Samsung 950 M.2 on ebay and a cheap adapter card.  Look at the bench numbers of my M.2 in ACHI on PCIe... This m.2 runs circles around my SATA SSDs.

Oh and just for fun i spent last week moving my old parts into a new case and swapped out to rigid tubing :D this old station has a few years of life left in her for sure!

Nice build, I'm still rocking my e759 with a a 980x unlocked 6 core for my HTPC. Probably wouldn't be any upgrade to put a xeon in it over the 980x though.

Damn, HTPC duties... That's harsh. I just use Amazon fire TVs for HTPCs with Kodi streaming from NAS these days.

I was thinking of upping my RAM to 48GB (xeon max for x58) for fun but for what I use the station for my 16GB at 1866mhz is fine for now. The 980x might have a Max RAM cap of 24GB

Even though the cpu may support 48GB the board may not.

48GB could be tricky on those, some CPUs were fine, others had to run at 1066 or 1333 to boot reliably with 48gb.
 
In my last few months as an internal employee, my forum time was cut short due to work load, which is unfortunate, I mam glad I saw this post now, I would have been all over it when it first was up if I had seen it.
I am glad to see people breathing new life into older boards, X58s were and still are beastly boards, and frankly I cannot remember any other MB/Proc that can be relevant THIS long after debut, these did launch in fall 2008.
 
Keep it up, love threads like this!

Thanks for the great thread!   I was thinking of upgrading my core i7-920 to xeon X5675 on SLI3... but maybe not.

I have a LGA 2011 mobo and I am currently running a i7 3820, what Xeon could be faster/better with a good OC (on water)?

I found a few i7 4960x CPUs for 200ish used.
I think I will look into this.
