    That's actually a good question! I haven't thought to try that yet. I could bring my 920 into work and give it a shot. I need to bring my rig up there anyway soon, so I could give it a try and see. So far, we've only run the Xeon W3505 and the W3520 on the T3500.
    Ci7 2600K @4.6Ghz/8Gb Patriot Viper DDR3 1600/Asus Sabertooth P67/EVGA GTX 580/Patriot Torqx 128/1 Tb WD Black
    Ci7 920/6Gb Corsair DDR3 1600mhz/EX58-UD3R/HIS Radeon HD 5870/750Gb Seagate ES.2, 2Tb WD Green
    And several other rigs...

    Cool - post back if/when you try it (the 920). If all is good, do you think it'd be worth it to slap the 965 on there? I know there is a HUGE price jump - just wondering if it would justify the cost with performance gain.

    No, it would not justify it. The ONLY justification for an EE965 is on a motherboard that allows multiplier adjustments. Dell has never allowed that. I'd just get the highest end Xeon and drop it in there. It's not like Core i7 has anything Xeon doesn't performance wise.
