    Xeons - Passive and Active?

    Erm what?

    Just been having a nosey at the S771 Xeons on Scan and they have Passive and Active listings for each model.

    Ok i haven't kept up with Xeons since... well ever really, so whats the deal with these then?

    i saw on engadget that Asus have released (or at least announced) their first Skulltrail motherboard, which got me thinking about building a system based on this again. You could build one for not too much money. Tempting again.

    Also, whats the main differences between 5000, 5100 and 5300 series processors?
