My current HiDef Ripper/Encoder/Workstation/Porn-Surfer needs an upgrade.

I am currently running:
SuperMicro X8DTi-F Motherboard (Dual 1366 i7 Xeon) ............. http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/qpi/5500/x8dti-f.cfm
2x Xeon X5550 Quads (Dual Quads + HT @ 2.67Ghz) .......... http://ark.intel.com/products/37106/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X5550-(8M-Cache-2_66-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QPI)

I am wondering if anyone here has a line on a decently priced pair of 5600's (6-core each + Hyperthreading), or has a pair for sale.
Engineering Samples are OK.
2.26Ghz and faster is acceptable. 'L' or 'E' Series preferable (X's take more juice to run)

...if you thought that 16 CPU threads made me a douchebag, WAIT till I get 24 up and running Wink

Shipping to Calgary, Canada required.

Cheers,
bitlane.

You should build this thing! http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=19183865
I made the parts list, and if I can sell some of my other shit I am going to have http://geekbox.com/ build it for me. Grin

I actually thought about going LGA2011, but really, all my rig needs is a pair of 6-core Westmeres @ 24 threads....and she's good for another 6 months.
(I'm actually VERY cheap....LMAO....and have a wife with a shoe collection of 500+ pairs)


Current:
- SuperMicro X8DTi-F
- 2x Xeon x5550 (essentially the same as Dual I7 920's, better Turbo Freq/Cache/Power Consumption)
- 24GB ECC REG DDR3 Samsung
- 3x Intel X25-V 40GB SSD (RAID 0 Boot/Program Volume)
- 2x 150GB WD VelociRaptors (RAID 0 Working/Temp Volume)
- Nvidia Quadro FX3700 PCIe 512MB
- SoundBlaster Xfi PCIe
- LG BluRay/HDDVD/DVD/RW Multi-Drive

....I just wish I had a few extra CPU threads for multi-tasking.

I am going to wait until 2013 for a socket change.

With the TJ07 case you could have them fit almost any mobo you care to buy in it.  Check out the 2nd prototype from the main page.  Massive drool.

I have a beautiful pair of X5650's.  They are sitting in a back-up server we no longer need......night have been booted up twice in their entire life. 

What kind of price are you offering.....they ain't cheap on Newegg....

If they are for sale, you tell me a price - I say YES or NO.
Any 'offer' I make will be a blatant low-ball because I am cheap......lol

$1,400 for the pair.  That is 30%+ off retail

As much as I'd like a $1,400 pair of Xeons, I don't need them that bad...lol

I'll just buy another pair of cheapo Engineering Samples and call it a day.

I appreciate the offer though, so thanks.
