    Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230 (2nd gen. core i7)


      Hello everyone. I'd like to ask a question about  Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230.

      So we all know that in Core i5\i7 2nd generations appeared letter "K" after model name.

      This letter K mean that  processor can be overclocked with  multiplier pretty hard. And the core of it is unlocked.

      So me question is the following.

      Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230 is overclockable ? Does it have unlocked multiplier ?

      Defauld frequency is   100mhz * 32x multiplier. +x2-x3 for Turbo.... and change fsb from 100 to 110, 115.

      And that is all ? Can i set a  50x multiplier ? or atleas 45 ? 47 ?


      This is  product info about E3-1230.    http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=52271. So , no information about my question are there.





      Thnak you very much. I'm waitiong for the information

          Victor: Hello. Thank you for using the Intel Customer Chat Support service. We are glad to be of service. How may I help you?


          Yevgeniy: Helli Victor. Did you read my question ?


          Yevgeniy: i set it before started chat with you


          Victor: Please hold\


          Yevgeniy: thnak you


          Victor: The Intel(R) Xeon(R) processors have locked multiplier unless they are extreme edition processors.


          Yevgeniy: so why you partner Allan told me that they are unlocked ?


          Yevgeniy: He doesn't have specific information ?


          Victor: I'm sorry, is there anything else I can assist you with?


          Yevgeniy: and by the way. How do i know if they are Extreme ? Thay have TDP -130 W ?


          Yevgeniy: how do i know if CPU is extreme ?


          Victor: With the information provided by the ark.intel.com web site.


          Yevgeniy: http://ark.intel.com/Default.aspx


          Yevgeniy:  on this web page only Core i7 990 series are extreme


          Yevgeniy:  no Xeon extreme


          Victor: There are no extreme Intel(R) Xeon(R) processors.


          Yevgeniy: So. even here http://ark.intel.com/ProductCollection.aspx?familyId=594 i see a lot of Xeons. and which of them are extreme ? With 130 W TDP ?


          Yevgeniy: So all your Xeonprocessors for 2nd generation of Core i5, Core i7 have no Xeons with unlocked multiplier ?


          Victor: No.


          Yevgeniy:  Ok.... i understand that i'm annoing..... but last question....


          Yevgeniy:  Does intel has Xeon on Core i7, Core i5 with unlocked multiplier ?


          Victor: There are no Intel(R) Xeon(R) processors that are Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 Processor or  Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 Processor. They are different processor families with different features.


          Yevgeniy: thank you very much. sorry for stealing your time


          Yevgeniy: have a nice day.
