    1) Running registered ECC which was dirt cheap from eBay
    2) Yep 4*16GB. Reviews on Aliexpress will probably be your best bet to determine the max for a particular mode.
    3) Running whatever generics were installed with Windows 10 at the moment as the motherboard website was all in Chinese. Gonna see if a Chinese speaking friend can sort me out as Google translate is failing.

    I can confirm, contrary to my earlier testing with a E5-2670.. many years ago..
    that the Asrock X79 Extreme 6, with an E5-2690 V2 supports, 8x16gb ECC REG ram for a total of 128gb of RAM..

    Purchased the board from another member from here..
    https://forums.overclockers.com.au/...8-10c-cpus-2133mhz-32gb-quad-ripjaws.1275217/

    I have yet to determine, whether it was my original board, the CPU (E5-2670) or Memory... or even the bios.. that limited me to a total of 64GB of RAM....

    Long Live X79 and socket 2011...!!!

    Hi there

    I've got a couple of E5-2660 (v1) cpu's that I'm looking to put onto a dual cpu esxi setup with a hardware spec something similar to this page: https://forums.serverbuilds.net/t/guide-anniversary-2-0-snafu-server-needs-a-friggin-upgrade/1075/3

    The intent is to have the same server run as my desktop by utilising esxi passthroughs. Part of this is due to curiosity/shits'n'giggles, the other part is to clean up my office... well to be truthful, yeah it's due to shits'n'giggles.

    I guess the real question is:
    As a complete modern day CPU amateur, I see there's a ~11000 passmark per cpu on the E5-2660. I currently run a i5-3570k as my desktop which is closer to ~7000 passmarks. Are the passmarks meaningless, or will I see something close to modern day power form these old E5 2660s? I'd more or less have one E5 running as a desktop pc, and the other for my other network or vm requirements. I don't really play games anymore.

    hmmm... that same chart.. has the dual CPU e5-2660 at 16404 vs the single at 11098

    so basically your single i5-9400. 6 core, 6 threads at 2.90ghz, turbo 4.10 is faster than a single E5-2650 8 core 16 threads, 2.2ghz turbo 3.0ghz.., dual may give you a 47% boost

    (note this is in multi threads stuff)


    a single 8700K is 15936,, almost as much as the dual e5-2660 - 16404

    You can use this site as a guide
    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/multi_cpu.html

    Look at all the single systems.. that could beat this..
