Test System Setup
Special thanks to Supermicro, NZXT, SanDisk, and Noctua for their support!
The test setup is typical for a server setup. The CPUs used in these tests are two Intel Xeon E5-2670 CPUs. The memory installed is 48 GB of Hynix CL11 1600MHz RAM.
For all tests that we ran, we used optimized BIOS settings for max performance.
This is the CPUz screen showing the various stats of the Xeon E5-2670 CPUs. As you can see, this CPU has a max TDP of 115 watts and core voltage of 0.816V, which means this CPU runs nice and cool under low voltage.
The Supermicro X9DR7-TF+ has a max TDP of 135 watts, so these CPUs will work just fine.
