does anyone know if i can overclock this puppy to 2.9 or 3.0ghz ?
If you read about that machine, it over clocks itself for CPU hungry tasks to 3.33MHz
I'm not entirely sure, but isn't it simply cause server class boards for Xeon's don't allow (permit?) overclocking?
Back in 2008 someone devised something called the ZDnet Clocker though it's on temporary. Dunno does it work with the newer macs.. but you can try!
Let us know what happens
I'm guessing you mean GHz. And the 5670s are the ones that will TB up to 3.33, not the 5650s.
Unfortunately, you can't.
No access to the firmware, nor is there a utility that works on the 2009/10 systems to make the changes needed for it to happen.
But there are other boards you can do this (there are Workstation and Server boards, not just enthusiast/gaming boards).
2006 to 2008, Yes, but not with 2009/10 systems.
It depends what motherboard you use and if it permits overclocking. I have dual 3.33GHz 6-core Xeons overclocked.
Are you using a SR2 board? How far do you have it overclocked?
