New Xeon 50-Watt
In the attempt to minimize power usage by servers, Intel has release a new sampling of their Xeon server processors to help ease the pain of the the next electric bill of the company, which everyone knows is caused by the server room. This low wattage processor is a step in the right direction, against the need for crazy power supplies to support those 12 hard drives and 2 processors. The old Xeon Quad-Core offerings used 120 watts to power them. That's more than a 50% efficiency increase!

These Xeons, the Intel L5320 and L5310, are clocked at 1.86Ghz and 1.60Ghz. Although light on power, these babies are in no way light on performance. Like previous models, there is a total of 8MB (2x4MB) L2 cache on the core, with 4MB L2 cache per pair of cores. The prices are $519 for the L5320 and $455 for the L5310 to the suppliers.

Nice job there mate. The caps look extremely close to the epoxy - must have been a few sweaty brow moments there ;)

It was a matter of controlled breathing and slight steady pressure and praying I was not pushing to hard.

It all go ok then?

Did you see a resulting temperature decrease?

Here is a pic that better shows just how far to push the blade in.

Oh, and forgot to mention the HOW in detail.
in the pic below, you can see just how far the blade needs to go to pop the seal, and you can measure it by the hole in the ceter of the blade, if the bottom of the hole is just below the edge of the chip DON"T GO ANY FURTHER! cause the capacitors are RIGHT THERE.
AS for testing I have not had time or the opportunity to work on my PC/Loop all this week.
