    With BIOS update, yes.

    Not much info yet, but my X5667 does 4.6 with HT on for 24/7 with 1.376 load. Not sure what I'm comfortable using in terms of voltage for 24/7 Folding@Home.

    Depends on the particular motherboard and BIOS updates available. They will be, sooner or later; some motherboard already support those.

    thank you for your answers

    I had seen on other boards that it was laborious to OC a Xeon and I fail at the same with a i7 "classical" and on motherboard mono-socket the 2nd bus QPI may make errors and some options in bios are not present

    For example, with a Xeon E5640 and R2E (or R3E) if the bios allows, I might OC to 4.2GHz without problems?

    thank you very much
