    Default Xeon x5670 and GA-X58A-UD3R compatible?

    I'm new to this forum but I've only heard good things bout it.

    Can anyone tell me if the x5670 xeon cpu will work in my UD3R v2 motherboard? I need to buy a cpu and a friend has offered me his xeon cpu for the same price as a i7920

    or have any suggestions on where to get answers.

    It should work fine,if you can buy one of those chips for the price of a 920 then go for it,makesure you update your mb to the latest bios before you install the xeon

    problem is that i cant find anywhere on the web someone that's run a x5670 on a gigabyte UD3R v2 board. And none of bios i've download say in their changelogs if they support the cpu or not.

    I'm running bios FG2, great bios since its let come down with my vcore on my 920 from 1.42v to 1.344v

    It's a 6core chip right? I can't see why it wouldnt run on x58 as it supports 980x,other xeons run fine,best way would be to email gigabyte directly and ask,or pm lsdmeasap

    Yes it a 6 core cpu.

    I have contacted gigabyte and they responded with this:
    Thank you for your kindly mail and inquiry. About the issue you mentioned, according to the latest CPU support list and test report in our side, this motherboard does not support X5670.

    I find this odd since I know fredeb on this forum runs an e5650 I think and gigabyte told me that the board doesnt support that cpu either.

    The bios we're using are both beta bioses, and I cant find and decent changelogs/supportlogs etc for them.

    I've tried sending Lsdmeasap a msg however he has yet to respond.

    Sorry, in a hurry so can't reply to your PM just yet...

    But yes, it will work fine, see here someone using with UD5 which is also not officially supported.

    You'll be fine, they just can't officially say it's supported. Be sure to use the latest BIOS

    Thank you! Really appreciate all of you guys' help. really awesome forum you guys have going here.

    I'll be sure to tap you knowledge base with regard to oc'ing that cpu as soon as I can get it. Obviously I wont be able to get the same 4.2ghz clock that I've got on my 920 atm.

    Anytime man!

    And yes, you will be able to do 4.2 or above easily with that CPU if you have good cooling, which I assume you do since you got your 920 there now.

    Thank you guys.

    I'm using a Corsair H70 and replaced the fans with 2x CM Excaliburs. That made my temps drop by like 10degrees. Also I'm using Antec Formula 7 thermal paste. The best Paste I've used to date. My 920 on full load with Intel Burn Test and Prime hits 81degrees max on 1.344v so i'm pretty happy with that.
