Leftovers of a failed experiment in Xeon 5080s. I scored a pair for about 25 bucks shipped, turns out board does not POST with those procs, gets stuck with code 01 on start. Got a pair of X5470s in now.
Might ghetto one of those Asus squirrel cage blower fans onto the northbridge heatsink, but it seems to get decent airflow from the fan on the second heatsink.
Was a longshot that it would work... the plan was hopefully getting about 4.5Ghz or more out of those Netburst Xeons and running with a pair of the 7900 GTXs for some mid-2006 "what-if" fun.
Anyone know what specific board can actually run these, or if the Skulltrail board can actually run these? I'm assuming anything Core and Core 2 based will run on it, so the next best thing is a pair of Xeon 5160s.
