Hp z400 vs X58 msi pro-e

first of all, sorry for bad english.
i have multiple offers and i cant decide witch one to pick.
1. Motherboard from hp z400 server it haz 1366 socket and x58 chipset i would try to pair it with Xeon x5650-x5680(dont know yet if its supported)
2. msi x58 pro-e also with 1366 socket and x58 chipset i would try to pair it with Xeon x5650-x5680(dont know yet if its supported)
3. any 1155 mobo with i5 2500(non K).
all 3 deals are almost in the same price, systeam would be used for pure gaming(AAA and mobas most of the times) i whould pair it with gtx 1060 or 970. also im not into OC, but maybe later i whould.
p.s.(my head keeps teling me that for today i5 will be better coz it haz bigger clock speed, but after 2-5 years it will fall, since dx12 love more then 4 cores)

  • i'd go with the MSI x58 setup since it would be the only one of the three that can overclock. You can have 4 core and even 6 core xeons on that platform (equivalent to 4 core i7s and 6 core i7s for that socket), check the CPU compatibility list but im sure it would work. They can generally easily overclock to 4.2ghz. You'd be much happier. If you're worried about future DX12 and Vulkan optimization, get a xeon w3680 to overclock since its multiplier unlocked (same as i7-980x).

  • To get the most out of LGA 1366 you need to overclock the CPU. It's very easy to OC. Get the MSI board.
    Set the
    CPU Ratio to 20
    BCLK Frequency to 200
    CPU volt of 1.30v
    Lower the DRAM Frequency to what the rated frequency. When you change the BCLK mess with he DRAM frequency. It would be overclock to 4.0Ghz

    Ah nice pick up man, the Gigabyte UD3R Is nice, but I have found it has a weird bug that sometimes just stops it from overclocking, if this happens a full battery pull out is neccessary to get it back on track.
    Happy New Year's Everyone, here is to an awesome 2017!
  • What was the total cost of it?

    well, its working prety well right now ~48hours non stop benchmarking...still w8ing for x5670 and new cooler to arive, then i will try to OC it.
    also, the total cost was 150e(2 sli bridges(2way and 3 way), 5sata cables and other stuff included)
    side note:as this pc arived, i got another deal. Asrock X79 Extreme3 + i7 3820 for 40Eur, the seller sayd its completly dead, but as i readed some notes in google, that mobo some times stucks and the way to fix it is spam power buttion ~20 times and never unplug PSU from the wall or else have to repeat spam. the only way to check if mobo isint dead is to plug somethink in usb like phone or somethink, if it charges, then mobo isisnt dead (hopefully it will works, still w8ing to arive)
