I am talking about the posts here saying they would post benchtest results.
He does have the cpu's and the other bits.
learn one lesson never buy a board before the cpus are out.

You almost have to wait until the next generation of the same board comes down the assembly line -hopefully with a fix in place for known issues. It almost pays to be on a tight budget that force one to hold off.

Sorry I've been really busy. I'll try to post more when I get a chance.
Bottom line: Sandy Bridge E5 16 core Xeon @ 3 Ghz (that's the 2.6 Ghz chip with Turbo 2 taking all cores to 3 Ghz) = 26,000 Kn/s on the start position using Houdini 2 Pro.
Would you talk some about your build, parts, memory, which coolers, temps at stock clock, esp. Motherboard etc.
The only info I know is the RAM which was 1333 MHz ECC RAM.
Cooling was stock air. It was an engineering sample so the 'finished product' will look better & probably run cooler the engineers told me.
oh - one other thing: it used C0 stepping.
Air cooled, 8 gigs ram. If I dont have any trouble, then I will bench it Saturday.
Cpu is 3.1x8. Even at stock clock it should be ok for checking some lines and position analysis.
I remember when I built my single socket 1366 6 core at 4gig, I thought it was fast enough.
So you would think the socket 2011 at same clock would be just a tick faster.
covering every step with close up video and plenty of instructional verbage. (is verbage a word?)
Then maybe someone here would build their own and use it to win a game against me.
Now that would be fun.

How is your build going? Can you report any benchmarks yet?
I will try the other cpu Monday, had to work 12 today.
If neither 8 core is compatible, then I will return the MB or try another brand of MB.
If I cannot get one of the two cpus to work in any single socket MB then I will wait on the SR-x.
I have 60 days before I can return the 2 cpus, maybe.
I havent given up yet on the single socket 8 core.
