It requires ECC memory which isn't supported by i7 processors. In addition, this is a motherboard designed for dual CPU and that means Xeon 5500 series processors only.

It's impossible to install two i7 CPUs. You need two Xeon 5500 series processors. The i7 is missing the logic required to run dual CPUs. The only way to use two i7 CPUs is to build two systems.
