This is on my work computer with a Asus P6T Deluxe socket 1366 motherboard. It originally had a Core i7 920 CPU overclocked to 3.5Ghz. That is a 4 core CPU. The Xeon x5670 is a 6 Core CPU that at stock speed runs at 2.93Ghz. I overclock it to 4GHz.

  1. Excellent cpu for the Money, in my country bought whole pc with great specs for 230 bucks, plug and play…4320MHZ….180X24

  2. Yes. It is still relevant. Recently my MSI Big Bang x58 motherboard died on me. Got Asus P6TD-E MB for second hand last two days ago with X5670 CPU included. So search Google for overclocking and that what brought me here.

  3. Excellent. I'm gonna try my hand at overclocking for the first time ever. Its only taken me 25 years to have the guts to do so lol.

  4. Have a hpz800 right now with dual x5670 I'm pretty sure I can't overclock on this board is there any tips on what prebuilds I can buy that can overclock this cpu? I'm no super computer tech so if I buy a motherboard I might not know how to build it. My main purpose is gaming, thank you I appreciate your help.

  5. I'm running my Xeon X5670 @4,56Ghz stable with Mac OS X 10.14.5 (Mojave). Geekbench3 scores about 21000pts. This old 6 core CPU is still great and quite capable, it's an overclocking beast.
    My motherboard is Gigabyte X58A-UD7 rev.1 with 24Gb DDR3 1600. Also Cinebench scores over 1000, not bad for a nearly 10yo machine…..

  6. All steps work but when I ran cinebench and looked at my cpu in cpu z it would run at 4ghz then drop to 2.9 I think after enabling speed step

  7. thanks Michael for doing this video.
    I have a X58 Mobo that I just cleaned up took out the i7-920 dropped in the X5670 and then the headaches started when trying to get anything stable Lol. So I will definitely be trying this 🙂

  8. 848pts is a nice score it is actually higher then a stock 4770k, I had a 4770k and with a 4.1Ghz OC (couldnt OC it further) I managed to get about 840 pts. I just bought a cheap PC with the same configuration as you and I want to stick a xeon it and OC it a bit to see what I can get from it. Is ist any diffrence between x5650, 5670, x5680 etc other then the core speed?
