The Core i7-970 looks like the best bang for the buck for this motherboard, assuming you're willing to buy a used CPU. Honestly I don't think I'd want to put much more than that into a 6+ year old, obsolete architecture.

That's the key, people are extending life of their X58 with the Engineering samples of the Xeon X5650, the xeon equivalnt of the i7-970. They are based of a die shrink and run cooler then nehalem.

I would look to the Xeon X5560, it's what I replaced my 920 with and this board supports it. 6 cores and 85w. and usually a solid 4.2 GHz overclock.

They're certainly cheap. but performance is only about 65% of the 970 (albeit with 2 fewer cores). 970 can overclock to at least 4ghz with decent cooling, from what I'm reading.

Indeed meant the 56xx series, runs cooler, less power pull and I rarely see any games maxing any of the cores.

Also to the obsolete point, it really depends on what you are using this for. As a workstation the x58 series was over engineered. It's only now that I feel like upgrading, looking at you Zen.

You're going to want a xeon x5650 in this board. They are 6c/12t and overclockable, mine hits 4.2ghz.

Yes, that's a huge difference. X5650 can be had for under $30.

I have no problem using something this old - my main PC is based on this architecture, currently running an X5690. But I wouldn't pay much for it today.

I'm with you, I recently went looking for another X58 board just to have a backup. and the prices of what was around d were stupid. for 50 bucks I do that mind

I had was still running this board 2 years ago. a word of caution, this board has random USB issues, the ports on mine would not work until after windows loads. ive tried windows based bios flashes it did not resolve. this was a pain because I could never boot into bios because my keyboard wouldn't work. I tried to use a PS/2 adapter it didn't work either.
