Bumping old post. Yeah I plopped in the E2140 and it worked without a hitch. I got a great deal on a P35-DS3R (same price as the P5K-VM) so I swapped the board. I'm sitting at a round 3 GHz with less than stock voltage. E2140 -- L2 rvision VID 1.3250V Tjunction 100C Set 1.3750V in BIOS (F5), loading...

I think for Xeons it's:

LGA 771 = E/X5xxx

You could probably fit the SATA cables in the curled front panel cable for a bit, then tie the rest when they need to part.

My B3 has a TJunction of 100, so I have to adjust temperatures in Speedfan by adding 15C, just like all the new G0s.

Wait until you get your P182 before you begin replacing parts.
The case with the front door closed will muffle the noise from your hard drive in the lower chamber, possibly to the point where you are satisfied.

MCP655 can be run at 1 for silence or 5 for performance. From my experiences, 1 is pretty much inaudible in an enclosed P180. 5 introduces a woosh of white noise. If you go with the MCP655, it'll be much easier to place and decouple than a giant 1048. If you're getting an XQ6700 only to aim for 2.9G...

If you have a local surplus store, you can look for an old Pentium 1 heatsink and fan combo and run it at 5V. Tiny drops of superglue works well to hold it in place.

I did this for a number of cards and was even able to put on a mild overclock.

Gigabyte P35 board uses about 10W or so less than the Asus P5K Deluxe.

Is it the woosh noise that you're bothered about? Try undervolting it a bit, or changing the top with an Alphacool or Petra top. The added mass seems to dampen the sound a bit.

Perhaps not as much detail as what you'd like regarding minimum voltages, but you can see how fast people are pushing their chips.
