There are two for sale here and I’m selling as a pair, so please take that into account when placing your bid. You are bidding for a total of TWO processors, I do not want to split them because they are designed to work perfectly as a pair.

They were an OEM issue for HP workstations and servers - almost identical to the X5680 but with a slightly lower clock speed.

Compatible with LGA 1366 motherboards such as the EVGA SR-2 I also have for sale - check my listings.

These are an amazingly affordable pair to run in a dual CPU setup for your dream video production machine, folding rig, virtual machine setup etc.

I was using them in a Windows and Apple OSX hackintosh build for video production and 3D rendering while I was working from home. Now I’m working full time elsewhere I down-scaled my home machine as I don’t need the power of these CPUs any more.

If you’re interested in the Apple OSX side of things these CPUs at their stock settings perform almost as well as the maximum spec new mac pro. Certain motherboards allow you to increase the performance of the CPU to well above anything Apple currently offers no matter what the price. Using a setup like this it’s possible to have a better performing machine than the top of the line mac pro for about a quarter of the cost.

That’s why these CPUs are still sought after for performance/value, as the newer (and far more expensive) Xeons have been locked to prevent such increases in performance.

My usual ebay rules apply:
I will not offer any refunds as I can’t be responsible for people incorrectly installing them and wanting returns. So please BE CAREFUL and always take the correct antistatic precautions.
I will not end the auction and sell early outside of ebay no matter what you offer me.
FREE postage inside Australia. There is no retail box but they will be packaged in antistatic bags with PLENTY of padding.
I will ship these worldwide, please check with me for a postage quote before the auction ends.

Thanks and good luck!
