Haven't watched yet, but I'm assuming no. Most games don't utilise multiple cores and are most optimised by the clock speed so unless server CPUs have 4GHz+ or whatever, I doubt it'd be anything better than just a regular CPU.

after puting server cpu into client motherboard you have to make bios mode becouse the stock one doesnt have operation protocols for server cpu's flags, so most OS wont boot. btw OC xeon on lga 775 is gaming 4ever

Continuity error. Linus' hair is all spiky in the main part of the video but his hair is short and flat in the Synergy commercial.

Pretty sure I did this years ago and swapped a pentium 4 with a higher clocked Xeon I ‘found’ at work (was junk anyway).

Damn it worked well back then..

The Second Hand market is real! Data centres migrating to new platforms dump all the CPUs and RAM in bulk dirt cheap on eBay. I picked up a cheap Mac Pro 2010 model, gave it 24GB of RAM and a pair of X5690's for less than £300! Add a 980 Ti, it games at 1440p144 and edits video like a champ - especially considering it's basically an 8 year old system now!

This for those who want a reasonable upgrade with low cost can get some juice from these models e5-1620 / 1620 v2 / E5-1650 and 1660 hexas yummy and can surpass some builds like 6600k 7400 and some 7500 :))

Play Company of Hoes^Z^Z^Zeroes 2 on a Xeon and you will see a difference... I guess because of the many little KI threads used there and the quad channel memory...

Actually when the chips were cheap, I nabbed a pair of used Xeon E5-2680 for $150 total. I happen to already have a ex-virtualization server with appropriate dual processor motherboard and 128GB ECC RAM. Now I have a 32-thread beast but sadly it have to idle for now as I don’t have a workload for it anymore.
