Extreme Quad Core Goodness for ~$15

Recommended Posts

Was puttering around in the computer hardware sections of several websites last week & found this & decided to do it to my backup rig.  For ~$15, I upgraded my backup socket Lga 775  rig to a quad-core Intel Xeon X5460 server cpu.  Being server processors, they are binned from higher quality silicon than standard cpus, being there is an overabundance of them, they are a fraction of the cost, ($15 compared to $190 for a QX9770) & they can be overclocked to 4.0 gigs. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Xeon-X5460-vs-Intel-Core2-QX9770  Here's a more detailed comparison chart of Xeon & lga 775 cpus with pricing: https://www.delidded.com/lga-771-775-cpus/   The only thing it requires is a simple mod:  https://www.delidded.com/lga-771-to-775-adapter/comment-page-1/#comments
