    What X58 board has BIOS support for Xeon X5677 / W5677?

    I am in need of an X58 board that currently has BIOS support for the X5677 or W5677 32nm Quad core Westmere CPU.

    Depends where you look on what the CPU will be called officially

    It is the 3.47Ghz stock quad with HT and 26x multi + turbo etc.

    Any boards have full support? Haven't seen any clocking done with these, there is 1 post on HWBot of X5667 on a RIIE so that seems like a pretty good possibility.

    Would be nice if it came with a BIOS that at least booted the chip to flash to newest BIOS, as the other 1366 chips I have access to are also...unsupported probably

    Currently looking at either:
    Open Box RIIE for $270: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131352R

    New EVGA SLI LE for $220 AMIR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188049

    Any input if the EVGA supports the newest 32nm stuff yet?

    Gigabyte X58 board support 32nm Quad core Westmere , i have the GA-X58A-UD7 and run great,
    RIIE supports too,
    but the EVGA don't supports Westmere CPU now.

    Think I'm sold on the RIIE for $270 there, been reading a bit all day and seems like a really easy board to clock. With potential 27x multi locked (if BIOS supports the locking of the first turbo multi like other chips) then it won't take much bclk or effort to max this chip's capability under water for 24/7

    Anyone know if the Gigabyte EX58-UD5 supports them yet?

    this is a good question...

    I noticed on that one HWBot result you reference it's an AO, I think Q3QQ, and single QPI I believe, I could be wrong though
    "bound to cover just a little more ground"

    The X58a UD5 F2D beta bios supports the 6 core Westmere chip.

    Went with the Rampage II Extreme with the hopes it will support it.

    I've heard of a few BIOS supporting hexa but not quad Westmere, hopefully the RIIE will have support or get it soon

    I think that's because the westmere-ep hex's that work in the REII are not 2xQPI but the BO Westmere Hex's and Quads are...I could be completely wrong here but that what it seems like

    but I hope the REII will do the job

    Yeah, hopefully we'll find out here in a few days.

    If it doesn't work, I will just blame you.

    F11, F12 and F12b seem to have full support for core multipliers and stuff, F6 and newer seemed to at least function, but OCing was a little messy.

    so how's the OC going? I'm pondering an upgrade to a Xeon E5620 myself.

    Save your money and put it towards a Gulftown. The difference between the bloomfield's and westmere is negligible.
