How well does the XEON Perform in games?
Theoretically they should be no different to an E8400

For all intents and purposes they are the same as the E8400
I've currently got it Priming away at 3.2GHz on stock voltage (1.11250) which I'm not going to run for eight hours just yet, I'm going to try for 3.4GHz at stock volts next, if that won't boot it's into the vcore and 3.6, 3.8 and 4.0GHz if I can.
EDIT: @ worshipme, max multi is indeed 9
EDIT 2: 3.6GHz at 1.2250v, 32°C idle 46°C load, memory as per sig, SuperPi 1M 12.828s.
EDIT 3: 4.0GHz is being extremely elusive, I have yet to get it to boot and the required vcore is outside the VID range for the processor which is giving me second thoughts because of the degradation that has been evidenced when overvolting these cpus. Temps are fine at 3.6GHz as above, I may just sit at that for now while I reseach some more, the E8500 has a VID range to 1.3625v whereas the E3110 only goes to 1.2250 which is what I'm running to get 3.6GHz so I'm kind of already on the top end of the voltage scale.
