E5 2600 v2 CPU stepping

I recently bought two 2650v2 8C/16T processors, same stepping, although I'm confused as to what the steppings mean, as I'm not entirely sure if I was sold ES chips or not. The seller said it was stepping 2. The listing also says QDG8 and that it's base is 2.3ghz and a turbo of 2.7ghz, which is not in line with the specs of the 2650v2.

More about 2600 cpu stepping
  1. Well these go in a socket 2011 motheboard so if you have a dual cpu socket 2011 board then these can not be anything but xeon cpu's.

    Did you not look at the model number laser etched into the CPU before you installed them?

    Have you installed motherboard drivers as it looks like CPUZ is having issue getting actual data from your board.

    Have you looked at what CPU it lists in your bios?

    I don't have them in my possession at the moment, they're on a boat from hong kong. I already have an X9DRI-LN4F+ in my case along with 64GB of RAM.
    The picture I linked was the one provided by the company I bought it from.
    can't really answer any of your questions as I don't have them.
    My questions were more about the CPU steppings for the 2650v2 and their meanings, such as problems with turbo boost, etc.

  3. Well then until you have them in your posession and can investigate them there is really nothing that can be checked/answered.

    The pic clearly says ES. The ebay listing you got it from says ES. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-E5-2650-V2-ES-2-3GHz-20MB-8Core-95W-QDG8-Max-Turbo-2-7GHz-Processor-/272501871461 You got ES and you probably won't find any info about stepping differences.

    It actually says multiple things :)
    The seller had said that they were used 2650v2's, when they arrived, they were ES chips, but they didn't work at all, even with the ES-compatible supermicro BIOS.
